Ultimate General: Gettysburg

I discovered this forthcoming very interesting PC and tablet based-war game from acclaimed Total War modder, DarthMod by accident recently.

Using a new game engine, it replicates the clash between the Union and Confederate forces around the town of Gettysburg in a  series of dynamic battles in real time.



 More information, along with a number of game-play videos and in depth developer comments can be found at DarthMod's blog.  



Sometimes (quite often, actually) real life gets in the way of miniature gaming/painting etc; so I always welcome the chance to flick a switch and have an electronic blast if it's worthy of its salt and this title - so far, at least, given the developer's reputation and past efforts - looks like it may be just that. More to follow...

That's it, for now.
