Re:7YW: On The Line

I love that movie. I know the hand-to-hand fighting was ahistorical but the LOOK of that movie was so great.

Also, it was pretty stirring. It made me want to run through the forest a lot (without somehow tripping every few feet).

"Unit builder"

<t>This is an idea I've had in my head for a long time and since there is little chance I will ever do it myself (I'm in software development but not in gaming), I will put it out there for you guys to chew on. It's not a new idea but I haven't seen it in use in a historical wargame like this (I for...

Re:WISHLIST - Seven Years War
