I think everyone who's ever wargamed has at least one of his games - I think Battleground Waterloo was one of my first ever computer wargames, sad to see him go.

Yes - I remember staring at the ads for battleground waterloo and Gettysburg. Was a new era in wargames. I bought my first PC just to play them. Jeez - what a friggin shame. Still cant quite believe it. :(

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.

I am truly saddened by the news.  :(

He was a wargaming hero and an inspiration. He gave so much to the development of computer wargames and will be much missed.

I feel for his family and close friends. He was too young by far to die, but he will be remembered with appreciation for all he has done for our hobby.

It can't have been any fun suffering from a brain tumour, so I hope his family can take comfort from his passing being a release from suffering. I sincerely hope he is in a better place now and gaming with his heroes of the past.

RIP John Tiller. You were and remain an inspiration for wargamers throughout the world.
The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own. Aldous Huxley

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat
