A run through of the Austrian infantry units for use in Clausewitz.
First of all, before I begin I’d like to apologise. As you may have noticed I’ve been a littl might on posts recently.

Hopefully I’ll be able to come back with fresh ideas to drive the game forward once more. There are various areas I’d like to improve on at this point and I’veContinue reading “Time Off”
