I’m very happy to announce a partnership with CigarBox Battles, Inc, makers of the wonderful “Battle Mats.” If you’re not familiar with these guys, they produce (among other things) lovely detailed terrain cloths in various sizes and a number of different themes, from modern to rustic, to Sci-Fi. These mats come with a variety of […]
The Blücher book is finished and heading to the printers. This means that we’re on target for an early-2015 release. The first expansion set (The Hundred Days), a 216-card box for the 1815 campaign, with all the unit cards you could need for all three of the contending armies, will be released at the same […]
HONOUR is proud to announce our affiliation with three wonderful colleagues in the wargaming world: Iron Fist Publishing Ambush Alley Games Crossover Miniatures You’ll probably see more announcements from all of us in the future, but I’d like to say a few things about it here. I have tremendous respect for these gentlemen and consider […]
After years (and years) of development, I finally feel confident enough to say that Blücher will be the next HONOUR game, and that it will be available next year. For more information, see the flyer.
My thanks to Eudes Lefevre, who has translated the free “Longstreet Lite” rules into French. They are available now on the downloads page.
For those who would like to try a very basic, “bare-bones” version of the Longstreet game, the free “Lite” version is now available on the HONOUR downloads page. You can sample a very simplified version of the game’s basic structure and mechanics, using the free basic action cards that are also available. “Longstreet Lite” is […]
Huzzah! The printers have informed me that Longstreet is on his way. I expect to have the books in hand in a couple of weeks, and then the cards a couple of weeks after that. So we’re on schedule for an August release (he said hopefully.) In the next few weeks you will see some […]
As I write this, I’m packing for my annual research trip in Germany. I’ll be working in the Prussian archives in Berlin and the Hessian archives in Marburg (Hallo, Brüder Grimm!). June is a slow month at HONOUR, but when I return, events will start to move rapidly as we prepare for the release of […]
Now the most nerve-racking part of game development ensues: The Long Wait. Longstreet is done and the proofs have been approved for both books and cards. So it’s at the printers and will be probably another 2-3 months before I can see the final results. The books are being printed in the USA, and will […]
I’ve kept quiet for the past month or so, as I needed time to explore all options, but I’ve decided that Longstreet will be released as a book. The complete game will therefore be like Maurice: a book and a boxed set of 108 cards. I’ve been in discussion with a few printers, and have come up with a […]
