Force on Force
This is a modern era miniatures game made by Ambush Alley Games. They have gone with a fire team approach, not a gigantic scale battle. It is also playable in any scale, so try out those plastic army men you may have. They are now bring out a new game, which is the first non historic, called Tomorrow's War. This one will be similar to Force on Force, but set in the future.
Field of Glory
This is the older time line miniatures games by Slitherine. In this game you can play with ancients and medieval miniatures. As with Force on Force, it is playable in any scale! They have done a great job keeping historically accurate and created a point system for force building. They then added in Fields of Glory Renaissance. This new add-on to the game allows you to play in a new time which includes GUNS... which adds a very different feel to the game. Finally to round out the list, they have Field of Glory Napoleonic, which will release very soon. This book will set the miniature game on a division scale. To get you started, her are the Quick Start rules for the Napoleonic! These rules will cover a 25 year time span.
Osprey brings out books all the time. Some of these are Raid books that focus on a very specific event in history, Essential history books, Duel books between two different specifics, and so much more! These books run from ancient times to modern and everything in between!
Some cool books to look out for from Osprey would be their Civil War books, as we close out the 150th Anniversary of this war. Another set of books would be the War of 1812, as it is the 200th Anniversary of this war.
If you are a gamer, or just really love history, these books are for you! The depth of information, as well as the fantastic graphics make these books a must have! Stop in the store and check out some of the Field of Glory titles I we have right now!
