Hi everyone,
I've played plenty of 3mm Modern games, focused around attack helicopters (Hind Commander). Recently, I bought a bunch of Germans and Russians for the WW2 Eastern Front, but can't seem to find any good rules to use. With the exception of Blitzkrieg Commander, does anyone know of any rules that would work for 3mm WW2, focused on tanks at an operational level?

Look Sarge No Charts works in that scale well. I think Spearhead is another.

Mein Panzer should work at that scale also.

Anything which uses one base per platoon (or higher), if you want something higher level.

A few which spring to mind :

Command Decision
5Core Brigade Commander

And if you want genuinely operational (as in, maneuvering divisions) then:

KISS Rommel
Kriege Ohne Hass

You could try Ostfront, works well at 3mm. The quickfire rules are free to download and have army lists for germans and russians included.

Main Rules:

If you want to play Divisional sized plus games then Krieg ohne Hass gives a fast paced game.

Don't forget Fistful of TOWs, despite the name, also covers WW2.

I suggest Panzer Korps if, as Martin says, you are looking for operational. You may wish to wait a bit as a second edition is apparently in the offing.

Yup, Fistful is a very good game and covers the 20th century through today.

Panzer Korps needs editing but looks interesting, and has one stand = one company.

I like Speearhead for that sort of thing

Take a look at Norm Smith's Tigers at Minsk. It looks like it might work for you.

Field Of Battle: WW2 (1 base = a company) is worth a look. We've played a couple of games now with a division a side in an evening.
