What are Chadwick and Harshman up to?

I have heard some rumors about Frank being working in the computer business these days. I have no idea if it's true.

I think people that have talked to him have mentioned that he didn't sound like he would be gack to game designing soon.

Well for FC at least there are new editions of Volley & Bayonet (multi-period miniature rules) and Soldiers Companion (originally from Space 1889) in the works. The new SC won't have any Martians, Steampunk Vehicles, Zappo-Rays, etc. though. :( The SC 2nd edtion may be more the work of someone else than just a FC work. I think he was also the main author for Command Decision which had a 3rd edition not that long ago. (3 years or so?)

There were also some excellent sourcebooks for V&B in the past few years. Don't like the system myself (too many situational rules IMO but this is a common dislike of most of his rules sets) but the sourcebooks are nice. Been eyeing the Jacobite one.

I think he was doing some new rules for Foundry but it doesn't look like they're out yet. There was a playtest draft on the net. (don't have the site handy)

He still shows up at Origins etc. every other year or so. 54mm games and talks.

Casey, Piquet Heretic (been a while since I looked at other rules)
OK, then Frank hasn't left gaming totally.

Maybe he'll return to designing some new wargames then...

He did some really good ones.
