Pretty cool Jay. Reminds me of a Walk in the Sun. With all those poses painted up you have 2 whole platoons for use in other systems and scenarios.

Thanks private. That is still a great movie thanks to DVD.
Yes, the figures can be used to advantage in many other imaginative "rules of engagement" environments.

I really like moving individual figures around the battlefield. In one movement turn a trooper could for example could walk up to the end of a hedge, look around the corner to see if it is clear to cross to the other side of the road, and GTLO (Get the Lead Out!) dash across the road and go to the kneeling or prone position. Of course he risks being seen by the enemy, or a barking dog and shot at!!

For me this freedom of movement for each trooper provides lots of hands-on involvement in the working out of the scenario's tactical objective(s)[playing the game.

When the movement, terrain, and weapons rules are leaked, I'll provide a step-by-step BatRep in order to illustrate the dynamic and satisfying method of conflict-engagement these rule provide.

This caught my attention when it was first posted, but there haven't been any recent updates. Was this a teaser for something to be published later, or intended to be a free game/rule set?
