Assuming you're talking about Legion of Honor from Clash of Arms, it's still in the works and seems to be nearing release.

They did an art dump not too long ago and have stated that the counters are finally finished, so it's probably just a couple months or so away.  Now that Moscowa is out, there's nothing in the way of it hitting the presses...

There was, however, a rather amusing kerfuffle over the game's art choice which you can see in the CSW folder for Clash.  Apparently, Hexasim used the same art without knowledge of Clash using it as well.  I'm skeptical of that, but it's hard to prove of course.

Been following that.  Considering the guy from Hexasim is on Ed's mailing list for all the LoH pre-pub adverts that's been going out for well over a year, I find it difficult to believe as well. 
Some people may think it's not that big of a deal, but for somebody like Ed who operates on such a little margin, I can understand why it would rub him the wrong way.  He took such a bath with Persian Incursion--which is a shame, because it's a great little model, but designed more for Harpoonheads--Moscowa couldn't come at a better time and he really wanted LoH to ride that wave.
I doubt that LoH will make the Origins/Historicon window that he wanted to make, though.

And fuck, I knew I shouldn't have read this thread. Wargame buying fever is flaring up.

No shit.
I've run out of room in my all-games closet;  taking them out to put on proper bookcases this weekend, I think.  I'll post pics for all of you to jizz upon.

The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Ok, it is the rare colleration of stars when the Forint is strong while the Dollar is weak. It means: AN EXCUSE TO GO BOARDGAME SHOPPING!

I am looking for solitaire-friendly titles mostly. I have actually found an enthusiastic boardgaming group nearby, but:
a) we have a crapload of games already which I must sell them. Republic of Rome in particular. At least they do like High Frontier though, which is awesome
b) they are not really wargamers. Yet! :menace:

Whats the final word on that spanish civil war game by GMT?

How are the solitaire DVG games?
