Hey that's my Fish!Learning the Grand Tactical Series as Where Eagles Dare arrived about a week ago. Absolutely stunning map and counters. Cut up all the counter sheets first thing. Later I noticed that the first two sheets are for the scenarios and need to be kept separate. Have been separating them for a couple of hours now. Well, some PBEM interruptions on the way, so not too bad for a friday night.
Great news. I just ordered the basic set, the additional hero pack and the first 2 scenario packs. I needed a co-op where my twins and I could all work together. They fight when we play other non co-op games.-Pathfinder card game...... really like this as well
WitE has a wonderful OOB but the scale is totally wrong for my taste, anyhow I'm playing WitP:AE again (small scenarios).Was fiddling with Matrix Games Norm Krugers The Operational Art of War again, and also Matrix Games Gary Grigsby's War in the East again...fiddle faddling...
I mean the game scale, 10Km per hex and 1 week per turn. I played it a bit and I read several AARs, as Russian you have to do defense like carpet, chessborad and so on, totally ahistorical and absurd. Also airwarfare was pretty bad (I don't know now).What I find funny about your post is you say WITE scale is not to your taste but you're playing WitP, that is an even larger scale and more complex cause you have to manage TF, air, ground stuff. Seems you can spend a week of real time on just a single turn with all the stuff to manage in that game.
CM is very good as well but I don't like it too much, I still prefer play ASL is I want a WWII tactical wargame.I still love SP Camo Steel Panthers WW2, its the best tactical computer war game around, it's looks and plays a lot like ASL, but the TOE is far more historic and the combat system is more like '88' or Panzer sort of, but Infantry is still deadly against tanks.
