Slitherine/Matrix Games News Release
For Immediate Release
Epsom, UK, December 15 th, 2011 – In March 2012, Slitherine ( www.slitherine.com) and Osprey Publishing ( www.ospreypublishing.com) will once again team up to release Field of Glory: Napoleonic . Based on the core mechanics of its predecessors, Field of Glory: Napoleonic allows players to command the armies of any of the nations involved in the Napoleonic and French Revolutionary Wars, emphasizing the combined arms tactics that dominated the battlefields of the period.
Richard Sullivan, Managing Director of Osprey Publishing, spoke about the new project: “After the success of Field of Glory: Ancient and Medieval and Field of Glory: Renaissance , we are thrilled to be working with Slitherine again on a project with such huge potential. We know that the Napoleonic era has long held a cherished place in the hearts of historical wargamers, and we believe that Field of Glory: Napoleonic will be a game that they are going to love.”
J.D. McNeil, head of Slitherine, added: “ Field of Glory has shown that wargamers appreciate a tactically challenging wargame with balanced army lists that can be played as either a friendly match or in a tournament environment. Our Napoleonic rules continue that tradition and also recreate the unique ‘big battle’ characteristics of the era.”
ABOUT FIELD OF GLORY: NAPOLEONIC
The hardback, full-colour Field of Glory: Napoleonic rulebook will contain the complete rules for the game and several army lists to get players started. This will be followed by two hardback supplements: Triumph of Nations in June and Emperors and Eagles in September. These supplements will give background and full army lists for all of the major and minor powers that fought each other during the wars.
