Sandman,
Thank you - I did not even realize some of those points about SOW.

Asid,
Can you compare and contrast with SOWWL?  Thoughts?  I have semi-followed Histwar on and off for  many years but nothing I saw (or tried demo wise) convinced me to purchase like SOWWL did.

Hi Hammer

I liaise with the developer of HW on a regular basis. I also have access to none public builds and am not able to discuss details.

However, the demo is from 2014. HW has changed quite a bit since then. 3D models, reworked ai, reworked ballistics model etc. This is a huge undertaking for the developer who is mostly on his own. I have learned to expect release dates to be missed. One day, this will be an exceptional product but I cannot say when that day will be.

Concerning SOW:WL. We have a very stable and playable game. This is in part due to the fact that the developer stopped updating the game a while ago. Any modifications will be released by modders like our intrepid Biondo and Mitra. Does it have short comings? YES. Is it playable? YES and we play it regularly in mp using HITS. I have had many an excellent battle with my fellow DOW Generals. In fact I would say that you will not find a finer group of people to play with.  :bonaparte

Asid

Asid,
I am my self pretty sure you all are the folks to play with.  However, I do not even have time for single player to learn the game at any lenght.  My free time is taken up with DCS, and even then I have very little time to train up on the aircraft systems prior to MP with the guys.

HITS would be quite an undertaking for me - I have even lost my familiarity with the game itself and essentially need to start over with learning everything.  However, Napoleonics has a soft spot in my heart as I spent many weekend days playing Naploeonics miniatures with a small wargaming community in my home town.  Remember the Empire rule set?  Or maybe I am much older than you all here!   ;)

I would probably need a much more casual intro to MP with SOW:WL, at least to start with.  One day...   8)

Histwar: Napoleon Melee (new build)




This is a short video showing melee using a development build of Histwar Napoleon. You will see the new GUI being used.

4 types of charge French vs Russian

 The video is premiered here with the kind permission of JMM. It was created 28/12/20

Yes, the game is still alive and kicking. JMM works on it almost daily. I have seen and experienced some of what is to come and it is exciting...I know that it has been a long wait but it will be worth it. I will try to keep you updated.

Happy New Year 2021 from Histwar

Histwar: Napoleon division column against line.

Another Histwar video premiered on the D.O.W channel.

Thanks to the developer JMM





In HistWar, there are 3 combat formations :
- the line that fights by fire,
-the platoon column that charges and seeks contact,
- the division column, mixing the 2 formations, which charges after firing.

This video shows a combat of this last mode: division column against line.

Histwar: Napoleon Path finding



Crossing the bridge

This is a short video showing melee using a development build of Histwar Napoleon.

Bridge crossing is a critical military operation in battle. It is therefore necessary to model it as well as possible in a wargame. The video shows this simulation.

La traversée de Pont est une opération militaire critique lors d'une bataille. Il est donc nécessaire de la modéliser au mieux dans un wargame. La vidéo montre cette simulatio
