Wanting to buy a copy of the Schwere Kompanie rules. Is the ritterkrieg.blogspot legit? Or another option? Thanks.

It still looks legit but I could swear it was moved (perhaps it was the ongoing new versions you get was moved). The following facebook group is updated regularly and references back to the page.

Is the ritterkrieg.blogspot legit?

Is it legit? OK, let's see, how could that question be addressed…

Troy Ritter is legit. I've known him as an online friend for years. He is a wargamer's wargamer. I am just now finishing up some GHQ Pershing tanks I bought from him when he left the 6mm scale to focus on larger stuff. It was a loss for the 6mm community, as his skills in painting miniatures are really amazing. Really. Amazing. And I learned a lot from him. (And I bought some stuff from him, and have no complaints about any of the transactions.)

He is the author of the Schwere Kompanie rules. The rules are legit. His authorship is legit.

Is the blogspot legit? Well, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say yeah, I believe it's legit. It's his work that is showcased -- of this I am quite confident. I recognize his handywork. Could someone else have grabbed a bunch of his pics and forged up a blogspot website for the fortune to be made making fraudulent sales of a miniatures rulebook? Well, maybe, but I'm gonna say not too entirely likely.

It might be that it has languished since he put up his facebook page. But it's still there. There's still a forum under the blogspot page. In 30 seconds of wandering around it I didn't find a stack of dead links. My anti-virus didn't scream at about nefarious pop-ups. So looks pretty OK to me.

But I've never made a purchase from it. So I'm only guessing if it's legit.

Any reviews on these rules?

Not that I know of. I really like them. Take ASL, boil it down to a manageable set of rules for miniatures, and you have Schwere Kompanie. Infantry combat is very different (rolling for hits instead of using a firepower table). There is (or at least was) a demo version of the rules featuring T34s vs Panzer IVs that give a good view of how the armor system works.
