Anyone bought and played these yet, or read them over?

I'm interested in feedback on what people think of them, and if they provide for a good game, since I'm interested in the period?

I'd also like to know if it appears that the stats are simple enough to come up with unofficial ones for US, West German, and French armor, among others, and/or other weapons not included with the original release?

Played them (SOLO) in 20mm and 6mm, happy with them although I do use my own ORBATs based on my time in BAOR in the 80s. Have a look for my FB pages, "Tales from the Wargames Shed" for a couple of the games. With a bit of work one could work out useable stats for other nations.

Tally Ho!

Thresher 01 if you want some "unofficial" stats for other NATO and Warpac nations for Northag have a look here:


Been looking at these myself…..interested to know what people think of them…there are a few reviews which seem pretty positive overall.

Nick, did you receive the rules yet or are you using the the pdf they sent out?

I have them. If you like Battlegroup you'll like NorthAG.

I am assuming you guys got them through the Backerit.

Thanks for the replies.

I'd like to know what people like, and/or dislike about them, and perhaps how they compare to the Team Yankee rules, and/or any other good ones out there.

I've read a friends print out recently. Only gripe I have was that the army list building for the Soviets was described as involving a player selecting entire companies, whereas my read of it was this was only an option for tanks and that you're limited to a max of two companies for the first two phases of the game, and you may be able to get another company via your late game reinforcement rolls. Minor quibble, and I'm looking forward to playing games.

Have the PDf and like it after a quick read through. Have had zero game time this week but hoping to try a small game this weekend.

Any thoughts on these, if people have had more of a chance to give them some play time?

Curious what people think of them, compared to Team Yankee, and Sabre Squadron, among others.
