Pardon the interruption, I'll just stick my 2c in, and leave you all to it.
I came here from the Distant Worlds forum. Distant Worlds is a game much like this one, in that the game runs along, and you stick your nose in from time to time and tweak things here and there. I'm always looking for games like this, I don't always like clicking like a madman. Huge fan of Combat Mission. Anyway, I followed the links and downloaded the 'general concepts' video. Watched it, and was blown away. When he said that moving 300 counters was not only tedious, but unrealistic, I said, 'this guy's speaking my language'. When I saw the play example how the computer was able to handle itself, I basically had my credit card out. Until I saw the price, but that's another thread, and not why I'm posting.
So I would up buying HttR as the reviews were good and it looked to be about the same thing as far as I am concerned, and the price was right. I am very happy with that game, it plays exactly how I imagined it would, and I am learning a lot about how an army moves just watching the counters move around.
Anyway, that overview video deserves a wider audience, I'm sure others would be swayed like I was. It even sold a game, just not the game it's advertising.
