Hammurabi70, Simples US, Maneouvre Group
. Real ranges, a concentration on basic real world tactics which means that Machine guns work much like they are supposed to, not hamstrung beyond rifle range. All the bits, Tanks, Infantry, artillery work together, Tanks move more plausibly but they also have plausible limitations. It doe only work for sane
folk from platoon to compamy battle Group level for the attacker. It perfecly possible to play a battalion battlegroup boot on the ground but its a multi evening game for the obssessed.
In the nature of the beast it is possible to do more complex scenarios like raids on convoys, even we have found, some recce scenarios. Again as its simulation you are expected to field terrain which is vaugely realistic, so no points systems as they only work on the designers sterile terrin. Points sytems dont work if its tigers in a forrest, or boacarge.
Issue 2 is as much about trying to make the wording clearer with the already published changes. There are a few ideas about how to make it better but any new rule has to make a very significant impact to be worth adding and not screw up other stuff. More rules is not always a good thing, its slows the game down and that in of itself is not a good thing. Getting a representaion that fixes one problem and creates another seems a gereat way to think you have improved when you have not.
Oh and it does require thought, folk have noted that there are lots of optionsin our rules which though simple like chess make it hard to decide. As an exampel Tanks have 3 speeds AND reverse, and can turn the turrets. We have been told that this is wildly unrepresentative of tanks as they should be in a wargame. The mention of foremations as defined in Tank manuals is considerd a horror story told only to the chilldren of "warpainters". Having to think about such things is considerd anti social.
We suggested he bought Rapid Fire, it looks lie a company game, the terrain is spaced oddley for a company game and the ranges and formations are all to pot but it does not require much thought and lets loads of toys that should not be on the table together on the table.
