Chain of Command Tactical Markers

The War Games Table blog has some very creative ideas for tactical markers for Chain of Command. They are, for the most part, scenery bits that look very much a part of the table.

Similar markers could be used for other games, obviously. The appeal of these is that they convey information, while still making the table look good.

Berthier Campaign Manager

A new version of the Berthier Campaign Management software is out. Tony DeLyall, the programmer, explains:

Berthier is software that manages wargames campaigns for miniatures. Berthier allows two campaigners, without an umpire, to run simple strategic campaigns leading to tabletop battles. Alternatively umpires can use Berthier to run two sided campaigns. Berthier is suitable for historical, naval or fantasy wargaming in most periods but was developed with the Horse and Musket period in mind. Play by email (PBEM) is possible.

The software has been updated to version: 6.0
