Good day fellow gamers,

I haven't posted here in a while, my apologies.

If anyone here is interested in being a play tester (you get free games), please send an email to Rich Hamilton at WDS support.

We need testers for all genres, even some medieval stuff is ready for testing. We have horse archers, castles, battering rams, and more!

Come join us.

Best regards,
Rich Walker

Hi, Rich,

So good to hear from you!

I fear I no longer have time to playtest, but as it happens there is a segment of the club (not including me) that feels you blew it on rating units for the Shiloh game and insulted the Army of the Tennessee in the process.

If you have the time and inclination perhaps you could share your thought processes on assigning unit values for Shiloh.

I would be available to playtest titles in most ACW titles.

I would do so in the hope that any previous anomalies that can cause an unbalance in scenarios could be avoided.

[In deference to Mike's comment, I consider that the original ratings for Shiloh were valid in view of achieving a realistic historical balance. I am always keen to see that the games reflect historical reality and aid the simulation value of the games.]

I will make a few short comments on the above-mentioned thread.
