if you are a wargamer loving new tendencies

Mike Patton (USA) and Richard Affinati (Italy) offer you a new way to play.

For many years we played Napoleonic battles in such a tactical way that wargamers would never allow us to field more than a couple of Division per side. Then we discovered methods that allowed us to simulate entire battles without them getting too complicated. However today that old destructive mentality still ruins our Second World War games, preventing us from recreating entire battles. At the most, expert wargamers put a few more tanks and platoons on immense tables and worry about tactical problems and the thickness of armour, without exmaning the strategic or gaming aspects that are implicit in combats between infantry division and armoured brigades. With HIGH COMMAND we can play the entire Normandy landigs, or even the battles on the Russian Front or in Africa ...

FATHER TILLY  Father Tilly is a set of wargames rules designed to recreate battles from the Thirty Years War. This website contains the rules, army lists and orders of battle for many of the armies and battles of the period. The rules have been play-tested but are by no means finished and I would appreciate any comments that players or readers of the rules would like to make.
