I just came across these outstanding historical/ design diary geeklists again:

Battle of the Frozen Lakes: The Winter War Battle of Tolvajärvi. part 1: Prelude to War, and Nov 30 - Dec 8, 1939

Battle of the Frozen Lakes: The Winter War Battle of Tolvajärvi. part 2: December 9-11, 1939

Battle of the Frozen Lakes: The Winter War Battle of Tolvajärvi. part 3: December 12, 1939

-------------------------------------------------------------------

If you're a WW2/Military history buff, do yourself a favour and check these out.

They're packed with a ton of maps, detail and photos, in an engaging style, of this fascinating campaign.

Part 1 got a lot of attention.

But Parts 2 and 3, which are just as good, were under-apppreciated (only 17 thumbs on the latter).

I think it just came out at a bad time and got buried.

They called it the 'Sausage War'

Rulebook and playbook layout are going to be final in another day or two ...

The historical notes and designer's notes are huge, but you've seen most of them if you've followed the 1000 posts Mark has made here. OK, maybe it's worthwhile to buy the game just to get them in consolidated form!

It's coming soon, folks, it's coming soon.

yeah! As 'moi' made these counters of which YOU could even 'design' something with such? I have several in 'mind' myself as any, while if another wanted to USE these for theirs, and might then MAKE more to suit what you'll devise, since everything has parameters of your intents & purposes. The entire 'suite' is generic overall, as some Unit could represent whatever level or echelon then, with *markers* and HQs configured as required, to the specifics with many "Scenarios".

Aargh, got the link wrong for Part 3 in the OP.

It's correct now.
