Just bought this and it's THE ideal set for 28mm WWII wargames rules at the reinforced platoon level. You can have a good wargame on a 6' x 4' table for a reasonable outlay. Probably 40 men a side and one or two vehicles and guns. When you use an 8' x 5' table... you are really smokin'.

I am absolutely blown away by the enjoyment I have playing this game. Simple but lethal. Tank rules are abstract and that's the way I like them. The rule book is professional. Many people are playing in my local area. Big thumbs up from me.

Fun, straightforward game that doesn't require too many figures. Perfect for newcomers to WWII gaming.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

Streamlined and playable miniatures rules. I highly recommend this game. My only gripe is that machine guns are a bit underpowered when compared to rifles.

This game brought me back into wargaming. The dice draw mechanic adds a lot to this game, it is almost chess like at times when you need to wait for your opponent to move before you can do what you want with a particular unit, but whose dice will come out first?

The rules are simple to remember from game to game, special rules are at a minimum compared to every other wargame I have played personally, and you only do a very small amount of looking through the rules during a game.

Just bear in mind that terrain is very important in this game, and as with all wargaming terrain not everything is covered in the rules, so be prepared to house rule your terrain.

Very good tactical game with well-made miniatures. Think a more streamlined WWII version of Warhammer 40K with fewer rules. Did I mention the cool minis?

I haven't played with vehicles yet but the infantry rules were very clean. It is fast and fun and isn't bogged down by excessive rules.

My first real venture into modeling. I wish they had better assembly instructions for newbies. Its expensive for those who feel like they have to have every thing!
Thank god for bolt action radio!

A nice system and tabletop alternative if someone was wanting some 28mm WW2 wargaming. Neat pinning rules, you could potentially eliminate a unit just by unloading on their position. 28mm WW2 stuff is a lot cheaper than Warhammer 40k stuff on that note.

Non realistic war game focused on infantry more than armor. Infantry trumps everything in this game (except maybe flamethrowers).

First battle with such gameplay and a lot of fun! Elegant and easy to play.
The most important aspect in my opinion is that your "army" is only composed by few squads, very practical to move!

Fine simpler skirmish set of rules for WWII minis (I've used 28mm). Sets are nice (although somewhat expensive) and the books clearly show their publishing origins and are handsome editions. So fast to learn and teach, not super detailed (which may be a minus to some) and armor not quite balanced. The good thing is it is actively being produced, is available from Warlord Games (or other online merchants) as well as ebay. I think I like Battlegroup Kursk/Overlord better but would need to play a few more games. Definitely has more of a Warhammer feel to it but overall this game fits the bill for doing conventions or more beer and pretzel fun WWII miniatures game.

A nice straightforward enjoyable WW2 skirmish game. Plays in about 2 hours or so; about 60 figures and one vehicle per side.
The system is designed for 28mm figures available from Warlord games, though other scales can be used.
Played several times with my ten year old son and he grasped the concepts quite quickly.
Have written and played a WW1 variant (with which I use 20mm figures).
The only drawback is the cost of the 28mm figures and vehicles, though cheaper options (i.e. 1/72 (20mm) plastics) can be used.

Not perfect by any stretch but easliy one of my favourite games. Its easy and fun to play. The pinning and activation system make this game.
Ignore the people who call this 1940K, they have no idea what they're talking about and have probably not played it.

Lowered my score. Game is currently massively broken in favour of nations with newer army books, power creep evident. My above statement is rapidly becoming sour.

Easy to learn, quick and enjoyable d6 rules - at the cost of some abstraction. Infantry are important and AFV tend not to dominate. All good.

Good game with simple, straight-forward rules. Not a simulation but does cover many factors like cover, different weapon types and national special rules.

Dont really see that much difference over Disposable Heroes. Sort of a mix of Disposable Heroes and Warhammer. I'll play, but will go back to DH when I run a game.

Nice Skirmish rules, that play very fast without losing depth. The main draw for me is the dice pull impulse system that produces some agonizing choices. The ability to keep the ambush order from turn to turn allows for some nice tactics.

Awesome game needs a few clarifications and may not appeal to simulationists but if your looking for a good easy to learn WW2 wargame you could do a lot worse.

Down rated to 7 after playing a bit and seeing the cracks in the system. Too many rules in this system don't make sense and there is no apparent line on realism vs playability; some rules are far too light to simulate real situations while other rules are overly complex without adding anything to the game.
A good intro to mini wargames but I'm moving on to better systems now.
