I founded Legion Wargames (LWG) in May of 2009. It is my goal, with the help of some talented game designers, and a few select affiliates, to bring you a fine selection of military board games which cover topics that are as of yet un-gamed, or new game systems that offer a unique perspective on history.
In addition to the games, a strong focus will be put on a high level of customer satisfaction and customer service, for I believe it is the customers, not me, that will allow Legion Wargames to succeed. I hope that you enjoy the games that will be produced and find all aspects of your association with Legion Wargames to be positive.
The Games produced by LWG will be professional quality boxed games with full size maps & die-cut EasyPunch™ counters. Because the topics of our games are somewhat less well known, the print runs will be quite small, 750 - 1,000 copies each, depending on the game. But that does not mean that the amount of work that goes into the design, artwork, and production is any less than the mainstream games produced by the larger companies. And as our reputation for producing quality games grows so will our print runs.
As the sole proprietor of LWG, I handle all aspects of running the business in addition to helping develop the games, creating much of the graphics for the counters, maps, and box covers, coordinating production and shipping.
My interest in wargames started many years ago when I was 17, playing Avalon Hill's Tobruk, and War & Peace, and I have been at it ever since.
Randy Lein - Owner
Designer of Toulon, 1793. Many of you know Andy through Limey Yank Games, the premier website to get Cyberboard, Vassal, and Zun Tzu gameboxes for all of your favorite games. This is his first crack at designing a game and he is making a big splash choosing Napoleon's first great victory as the subject.
Geoff Noble -
Designer of Redvers Reverse is currently on hiatus. His game is still on the CPO list but for the time being it's in a holding pattern while I find someone to take up the reigns.
John Gorkowski -
Designer of The Great Game. With many a design focusing on WWI under his belt John is moving to Central Asia covering the 50 year Anglo-Russian struggle for supremacy in the region. The period map just adds to this great topic.
John Heim -
Designer of Corregidor. This is John's first design and his research on this subject is exhaustive. With Mike Taylor as his mentor John is sure to have a winner on his hands.
John Poniske -
Designer of Fire on the Mountain. John has another game coming to LWG Maori Wars: New Zealand 1845 - 1872.
2010 has been a very good year for John as he has had no less than 3 games published by 3 different companies.

Steve Dixon & Shawn Rife -
Design team for B-29 Superfortress and Hell Over Korea. These guys did a spectacular job on this widely popular solitaire game, B-29 Superfortress, and the add-on module. They have now turned their attention to a completley redesigned version of B-17 Queen of the Skies, tentatively titled "Bombs Away!". This one is going to be huge.
Steve Dixon -
Even though Steve is busy with the above projects he still found time to design another solitaire game, Picket Duty covering US destroyers facing Kamikaze attacks in 1945. This one is sporting some specatcular artwork and has risen quickly through the CPO system. We have another winner on our hands.
