Bulletin de la Grande Armée No. 4

Officers of the Grande Armée,
I am proud to share with you the advancements that the Grande Armée & the NWC has made since 28th May 2021.

Looking back it can only be concluded that the French side as well as the NWC continues to prosper. By the end of this year we will have continued to raise the amount of gaming completed and will not only top the results of 2020 but will have so many games completed since we had last seen in 2014. I hope we can continue along this way.

On the French side we have now all administrative positions covered with Service Awards, so those that contribute this way for the well being of the French side & NWC will be recognized in their respective positions.

A big surprise was the purchase of the John Tiller Software assets by Wargame Design Studio. They bought the full John Tiller game catalog, source code and John Tiller and John Tiller Software name. With the support of the Tiller family this allows WDS to continue to build on John’s legacy.

Along with this came a series of updates to the whole Tiller game catalog, the version level for the Napoleonic series is now 4.0. All that had bought games directly at the JTS shop should have received a mail to re-download the latest installer so that they can start right away with version 4.0. The changelog is not a short one and shows again the dedication to this game series. The cherries in these changes are the addition of 3 new optional rules, one of which allows phased gameplay with the speed of turn gameplay what many will welcome. Another highlight is the improvement of the Fog-of-War, the "Detached" status, "Can Deploy" ability, etc. are now not shown for enemy units. Detailed icons for the unit type are only shown if the unit is close. Along with many other changes this considerably improves the Napoleonic Battles series.

And it gets even better with a Wargame Design Studio Winter sale. This years sale runs from 15th December 2021 to 3rd January 2022.
All titles that have been released longer than 12 months will be on sale for 25% off, or $29.95 each.

In the light of the changes to our main game series I reach out to the many new members that arrived in 2020 & 2021 but also the old veterans and recommend to start maneuvers to get used to the much improved gameplay. Do not hesitate to post or answer requests on our opponent finder section.
Also do not hesitate to participate on our forum if any questions have come up with the recent changes. It's a good chance to exchange the experience gained with the new patch level so to raise the understanding and enable us to continue to hand the Allies their heads.

Gentlemen, let me wish you happy holidays and a good start into the new year. I wish you all that 2022 brings you only the best.
Vive la Révolution! Vive la France!! Vive l'Empereur!!!
