I'm looking for man to man .. where one counter equals one man/soldier..

I know there have been some great classics in the past, like firepower, ambush, etc

any new ones out lately or coming out?

thanks

Besides a few classics, like Sniper and it's sequels, the choices are few. This is one segment of wargameing that has been severely overlooked. There was almost...

Unpublished Prototype

...but Compass has canceled it, I believe. I think the lack of these types of games is an industry oversight, as the original Sniper was popular enough to spawn several sequels. There have been the card games versions (like Up Front), and solitaire games like Ambush, but I want a 'meat and potatoes' hex-n-counter treatment - a modernized version of Ambush.

Please, though, no half backed Kickstarter attempts.

One that comes close on a bit different topic is Soldiers: Decision in the Trenches, 1918. Very small platoon action in WWI trench warfare. It was in Strategy & Tactics 4-5 issues ago.

A different sort of experience in this vein is All Things Zombie, too.
