Cross fire for infantry actions
And try to play WRG 1988 version
Do play WRG 1973 version for a relaxing evening
As well as Panzertruppe
Mein Panzer as well
All depends on how many tanks I want on the table
One hour skirmish rules if talking about a few squads of infantry
As well as Squad leader some times Advanced Squad leader

Interesting you should mention the WRG word here. I was told some work had been done on their June 1972 infantry action rules* using a PIP activation system. I doubt these will see the light of day but I intend to play around with such an system… on the other side.

Hi Frank
I would very interested in any development of those venerable WRG rules . At my last check I have 4 copies acquired over the years one pristine set protected by plastic two working sets and one which has the written additions scribbled in it .

Moooo-over, here's gamin' with To Dine For…., hey, we aint got no beef with that, as long as a decent Continental Breakfast is provided. ;)

As an ex infantry officer the best rules combining accuracy and playability are Chain of Command. It's all about the section commanders getting amongst their guys and CoC reflect that.

With the Jump Off points they also reflect the "empty battlefield" and the uncertainty of the enemies location. The hardest part of the section battle drills is always "locating the enemy"
