Description Edit | History

Fighting Formations is a fledgling series of games, which will focus on several battles of various individual formations during World War II. The first title in the series is "Grossdeutschland Infantry Division." Future titles aren't yet set in stone but could be devoted to other famous divisions (Big Red One), Corps (Afrika Korps), regiments (442nd RCT), Commando troops, Ranger battalions, etc.

The scale of the game is 75 meters per hex with turns representing about 5 minutes of real time. Units are squads, guns with their inherent crews, and individual vehicles. Platoons are also employed.

The game has card Assets -- including such things as snipers, artillery, air support or demolitions -- but is not card-driven. It is also not the typical Igo-Yougo fare with a strict sequence of play. Instead, the base game engine is an impulse-type back and forth mechanic whereby the various Orders carry with them a certain cost in Initiative, with the person having the most Initiative at any given time being able to take the next action on the map.

This first game has the following components:

4 22" x 34" back-printed mapsheets
5 countersheets
55 cards
24-page series rulebook
48-page playbook
an 8.5" x 22" track display
several cardstock player aids
dice: 2d6, 2d8, 2d10, 2d12 & 2d20
10 wooden cubes
1 wooden pawn

5 Fighting Formations Line of Sight table, detailed and general
This is a Line of Sight table that I have adapted from those I've seen elsewhere and similar to one that I have used in other tactical games. I played the FF scenario "Operation Max & Moritz", and I thought this LoS table might supplement the Line of Sight rules in FF and also make determining Line of Sight easier and more practical (understandable) for gamers. I have 7 elevation levels: Level 0 (zero) is the baseline, levels 1-5 are above this, and level -1 is (1 level) below the baseline elevation level. Each hexagon range number (0-8) has 5 dots within its box for the 'detailed' LoS (upper) table. The middle dot is in bold, and represents the center white dot in the hexes on the mapboard. You take the location of the 1st ('firing') unit, that of the 2nd unit ('target'), and...
