I think it would have been better to have the British 1st Corps fight on the river Weser in the game Blood and bridges. Having served there in 1985 with 35 Engineer regiment, it is where we would have fought and hopefully won. Plus the scenery is much better to die in. Great game, and just ordered Heroes of the blitzkrieg.
Yes, Niko is a great artist. As you may know, however, his last game with us was Swift and Bold. Although some of the NOSB counters are his, David Julien (and Olivier) have drawn the LnL counters since then, and done a great job.
