Thanks

I haven't played it in a long time either but Tide of Iron has similar mechanics.

My collection, though not complete, is still intact but hasn't seen play in many years.

With that many house rules it's really hard to tell if I can even refer to this game (we still use those stat cards... but most of them are custom)

Doesn't get enough table time as far as I'm concerned, but I have a decent sized collection and I'm keeping it just in case!

I would be interested in hearing more about your custom cards sometime.

I agree that it seems to not get much table time. Why do you suppose that is?

I've never played according to the rules given. The originals appeared to be an afterthought and were pretty pathetic. I think they've improved since, but I haven't bothered to check it out.
I use them to play out battles which occur on the boardgame, using rules I essentially wrote from scratch, borrowing from various other systems.

Haven't for a while, though. It's a slow way to play the game.

My group still plays every now and then - though not as often as I would like to. cry We use the Expanded rules along with the official errata and card updates and even what semi-official clarifications I could find on the old WotC forums from some of the game designers and company reps. for things like pure faction bonuses and formations.

My favorite factions for the Allies are the U.S. and the British Commonwealth, and for the Axis (besides Germany, everyone wants to play Germany) Italy and a healthy sprinkling of Romanians and Hungarians.

I played a handful of games against a guy who would only play Soviets. So everyone has a favorite, but it's not always Germans. :-) Personally I like the minors too, Hungarians, Finns, Italians.

Still play twice a week Tuesdays and Fridays. Game is a good simulation of combined arms combat. The units are historically modeled Such a wide variety of units provides for many different strategies to be employed.

I still have 1,632 units that I purchased over the years. Currently (as of July 2017) on MiniatureMarket.com they are worth $4,445.45 US. I haven't played a game in years, but still hold on to them in hope. My smallest force is 37 Polish units totaling 145 points, while the largest is 443 German units at 5,624 points. Anyone interested in a game? :-(
