I picked up Whistling Death the other day and after working my way through some rules it dawned on me just how excellent the game system is.

So I decided to check out COA's website and to my surprise there was a whole host of hardcore wargames possibly not getting the recognition they deserve.

Here are a few of the more interesting games/game series. I would be interested in any comments by those of you who may have played some of these.

The Fighting Wings games.

On BGG this is often referred to as ASL in the Air.

The Command at Sea series.

ASL on water? Is this the ultimate WW2 Naval system?

I am still reading the rules, and really looking forward to playing. Easier to learn for anyone who has played Paths of Glory. Just reading the cards and historical info is a blast. I don't usually gush about games I haven't played yet, but this one looks like a winner so far.
