Khartoum-The Final Assault. Khartoum with Charlton Heston and Lawrence Olivier is one of my favorite movies and I have fond memories of my parents taking me to see it in the theater. It would be awesome to game the final assault with the city garrison diminished by starvation and dervishes everywhere. It would be good.

|That this movie is unavailable in the States is an incredible injustice.|
April Morning-Retreat from Concord. Yeah, this is an old hard to find Hallmark Hall of Fame movie based on the Howard Fast novel. It's at least twenty five years old. It could be a great skirmish game or Brother against Brother game. Concord is an important action at the beginning of the AWI, equally hazardous to both sides. It could be an interesting game.
|This 1988 movie has a great cast with Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Urich, Rip Torn, a young Chad Lowe, and Susan Blakely|
Return of the King-Battle of the Pelennor Fields. I actually don't much care for the movie version of this, but it's one of the three battles I've always wanted to do-Cowpens and Agincourt being the other two. Tolkien's description of the action is so interesting. No army of the dead in book, but lots of Oliphaunts. It's a 15mm game for sure with lots of Riders of Rohan, Orcs and men of Harad.

Henry V (Branagh)-Battle of Agincourt. I love this movie. I love everything about this movie. It's so much better than the Olivier movie. I've sort of surrendered Agincourt to Chris Craft, and I'm more focused on Poitiers-someday.
|Edward the Duke of York, the Earl of Suffolk, Sir Richard Kikely, Davy Gam Equire; None else of name; and of all othermen but five and twenty. O God thy arm was near.|
The Wind and Lion-Desert Fort. I still love this movie too. Candace Bergen, Sean Connery and Ken Kanaly trying to chop up the German nasties from the inside, while the Riffians attack the fort from the outside. Come on, admit it you love the dueling artillery pieces too. Sword and the Flame, it was made for Sword and the Flame.

The Natural--Knights vs. Pirates. Little did you know I already have three painted Reviresco teams and two unpainted ones in my drawers of shame. I love this movie, and the final scenes are so great. Don't know about scratch-building Knight's Field though.

The Patriot--Ha ha!! Fooled ya. I hate this movie.
Oh well, back to the cogs.
