The end of the year is nigh,2011 has been a decent one for new wargames. There's some good-looking games set for release next year and I'm probably not the only wargamer here that has a "must have" or two on his gaming radar for 2012. I'll post mine, you post what new wargames, expansions, or reprints you're looking forward to the most in the upcoming year. This list may be a little early but what the Hell, if it results in a couple more pre-orders it's all good.

If your most anticipated game's release (including delays) is "straddling" the new year and the street or pre-order ship date is not definite use your own judgement in posting it.

Which 2012 wargames are you looking forward to?

There is a way to get your MMP-IGS fix ... Special Operations magazine.

This decedent of A Victory Lost is scheduled to be released in the magazine's issue #3, in August 2012.

I love AVL, and to date, I have yet to be disappointed by MMP's magazine games (the proofreading of the rules though ... wow), so you know I'll be on board here.

I also look forward to this game's brother and fellow AVL decedent Königsberg '45, another Three Crowns Game Production that MMP will be giving a wider audience. I'm not sure if the MMP release of Konigsberg '45 has to trudge through the MMP preorder process, here's hoping it doesn't.

I'm also looking forward to the January release of MMP's Special Operations magazine #2 featuring a redo of this game on "Hube's pocket" aka the Kamenets-Podolsky pocket.

In addition, the magazine promises an cornucopia of articles, including an AH General style, how to play the feature game by the game's developer Adam Starkweather and an article on the Soviet generals featured in Fury in the East by yours truly.

The game map is created by MMP's latest artistic contributor François , it can be viewed here.

Perhaps more of a con-sim than wargame, but given my interest in Latin America, a game about Colombia's dealing with narcotraficantes, FARC and paramilitaries is right up my alley. From the designer of Wilderness War and scales from solitaire up to 4 players.

Surprised no one else had this here yet!

The Normandy campaign must be my favourite bit of military history of all time, yet I do not own a single game on it. That will change in 2012 Just hope this gets into production soonish, after what I've read elsewhere about the MMP P500 system, it could be a long wait

This one really has me excited. It looks totally cool. I just wish I had the funds to pre-order it, so it could get off the P500 and into production.

Look, plenty of real wargamers make "brrrmmm, BRRMMMM" noises as they move their toy tanks around the map. I say that as a simple statement of fact, not an apology.

The GMT edition of this very limited-print block game on the Great Northern War (1700-1721) is now in art production. I am confident it will be out in 2012.

Can't believe this one wasn't already on the list! (Or, I can't believe I missed this one when I looked through this list). Rick Young's fast action battle system applied to one of the few WW2 campaigns that hasn't been done to death. Can't wait for my preorder to arrive!
