Django Wexler: WargamerPosted: September 25, 2013
It appears that he began playing Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, and Space Marine/Epic before moving on to Privateer Press Warmachine/Hordes. Eventually he took up historical wargaming and that he is a fan of De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) and De Bellis Multitudinis (DBM). Furthermore he has taken part in a year-long campaign based on Colleen McCullough’s FIRST MAN IN ROME that was run by his friend Jim Naughton.
Django Wexler has also used the Napoleon’s Battles system although he states that he does not own any Napoleonic wargame figures. In the interview he admits that he did not wargame any of the battle scenarios in his novel but that being a wargamer had helped him to set them up and had given him ideas about the kind of decisions a commander has to make.
