Mosby's Confederacy Announced

Tilted Mill Entertainment announces Mosby's Confederacy, a game mixing turn-based strategy and real-time tactical combat to recreate the exploits of Confederate general John Singleton Mosby, "one of the Civil War's most interesting and dynamic leaders." Here's word on the game, which is due later this fall: "Missions and their objectives are randomized, so you'll need to approach each game differently, carefully planning your strategy for success. You draw your soldiers from local towns, then through hard won battlefield experience transform them into fighting men – scouts, cavalry, rangers and riflemen. Between battles you'll invest in local towns, so they can serve as field hospitals, stables and munitions caches, helping to keep your forces fit and able to fight, and remain confident and supportive of your ongoing efforts, by willingly supplying men to fight for your cause - and as the war rages on this becomes increasingly challenging."

I know this sounds shallow, but I'm waiting for screenshots. I didn't see any on Blue's link.

When considering wargames, screenshots give a good impression of just how visceral or abstract the game will end up being. I have played enough wargames involving huge swathes of land represented by tiny tan or green hexes occupied by small nondescript squares representing hundreds or thousands of soldiers to last several lifetimes.

Combat Mission has ruined me for abstract wargames.
