You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

Following that trail, after Viking City Builder I also wishlisted Aztec City Builder (or whatever it was specifically called), and The Headsman.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

My wallet, it screams.

Further down in my queue was also Kingdoms: Reborn, which also looks pretty good.

Saw this. But after seeing it was made by playways and looking a bit more closely at the soldier models I decided to remove it from my wishlist until it is done.

It looks interesting, but I find the title misleading. The vikings and the Romans did not interact. By the time the Vikings came around Rome was dead in the west and had transformed in the east. The Emperor's Varangian Guards were all Norsemen and Byzantium traded with the North, using a lot of Norse mercenaries. All that was left in the West were barbarian Kings of the proto-states of the medieval kingdoms some of whose lords aped Roman customs. This does not detract from the game, but they need to find a new title or move the game's setting. Or not.
