Battle for Wesnoth

I don't know of many historical hex and counter freeware games but these should at least keep you busy for a little bit. I have played the Battle For Wesnoth game and it's pretty fun if you are into fantasy stuff at all. The others I don't have any experience with.

There are tons of old games out there for free, and if you use DosBox and Dosshell it's pretty painless.
