Are any of you in your club contemplating using "Histwar: Les Grognards" (once it is released) as a tactical engine to fight CotD battles as they occur in a campaign? That would seem to be Napoleonic Nirvana to me! It seems, from reading descriptions, that CotD lets you exit the campaign to resolve battles, then enter the results (from any tactical engine or miniatures game or whatever) back into the CotD campaign and resume at the operational level.
Is that correct? And, since LG says it will have a fairly easy mapmaking capability, plus the ability to specify all sorts of details for custom battles, I think this sounds pretty promising. Your thoughts?
Certainly, we plan to add LG as soon as we can. We already use HPS which has the OOB's in place for CotD's campaigns, so all you need to do is just find a map and add the troops. A little more complex than LG, but not totally out of the question. But that is how CotD runs with that option.
So In short yes, if our gamers want to do that we don't see any reason to stop them.
