An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age

Lucius and I want to try something.
We’re looking for a turn-base tactical wargame we can play against each other. The idea grew out of a conversation we had about the old Amiga game, The Perfect General.
But what game?
Really, what we’re after is Company of Heroes, but as a turn-based game.
At first, I liked the look of Valor & Victory. Maybe I still like it. But I’ve heard it does multiplayer poorly. And it lacks fog-of-war, which I think is an important criteria.
Lately, I’ve been looking at Panzer Corps 2. But again, I am worried how it translates to multiplayer.
Along the way, Eccles and Matt have been drawn into the plan. Of course, being Matt, he still has Perfect General, and consoles on which to play it. But when I look at it now, I shudder. Those graphics!

As best I can make out, The Perfect General was followed by a sequel – The Perfect General 2 – and after that came Panzer General, Panzer General 2, and then Panzer Corps.
