    Great news Hinkel! Looking forward to seeing how this turns out using Napoleon as a base!
    Your reality sir, is lies and balderdash, and I'm happy to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever!

    This is great news.

    I was considering buying empire just so I could play B&G but it looks like I won't have to. Best of luck! I can't wait.

    THIS, I will watch. I think the ACW mod with the NTW battle mechanics will make it top notch; and this is from a man who immensely enjoys the ETW-ACW mod.

    You are going to have to buy it if you want to play it in campaign mode though.

    Great stuff Hinkel. I love the ACW mod but ETW always felt a bit clunky to me - like the NTW base better. I look forward to some progress with this and good luck.

    Are you going to be using ETW models, or NTW variantmodels?

    They should use the varientmodels In my opinion, help with graphics, because ETW models look terrible to those who have to play on medium graphics and such

    Well, the empire models are superb and we will use some of them of course.




    But for the confederates, variant models will be good, so we can make 65 different uniforms in one regiment
