Rules…

SMALL WARS: New Perspectives on Wargaming Counter Insurgency on the Tabletop

Small Wars: New Perspectives on Wargaming Counter Insurgency on the Tabletop The topic of counter insurgency is under represented in tabletop hobby wargames. The relatively few sets of rules in this area have nearly all focused on the tactical level combat. All except one of these sets of rules are written to portray the operational/campaign level situation. Using card based systems, these games are particularly suitable for the solo wargamer. These games are not fair. They each aim to give the wargamer a greater understanding of the particular conflicts they represent. Games include: Boots on the Ground: Company Level Actions in the early 21st Century; An Isolated Outpost: Six Months in the Sahara; Eight Years in a Distant Country: Soviet involvement in Afghanistan; Ovambo: Counter-insurgency in South West Africa; Good Morning Vietnam: LBJ's War 1965-68; and Flying Column: The Irish Troubles 1920-21. $22.00 USD

Avanti: Italian Mid-War: Flames of War WWII Supplement The Italians learned about modern warfare the hard way in 1940. Now they are back, showing the world what the Italian soldier can do. Tough, determined, skilled, and aggressive veterans, the Italians broke through the British Gazala Line to save the trapped German Afrika Korps, held the line at El Alamein, and opened the way at Kasserine Pass, before holding up the American offensive at El Guettar. $20.00 USD

Mollwitz and Chotusitz: Battles of the First Silesian War

Mollwitz and Chotusitz: Battles of the First Silesian War Two battles in one box: Mollwitz (April 10, 1741) King Frederick II has been outmaneuvered by FM Neipperg. The plodding Prussians must advance over snowy fields to assault the waiting Austrian infantry and escape the entrapment. The Austrian player, with superior cavalry, must use that cavalry to slow down or distract the Prussian infantry before they devastate their Austrian counterparts. Each side has their strengths (and weaknesses), and must seek to maximize them to their benefit before time runs out. And, there is always the possibility that Frederick will flee the battlefield; Chotusitz (May 17, 1743), the Austrian army under Prince Charles has again outmaneuvered Frederick and hopes to annihilate the isolated part of his army. The pressure is on as the Austrians must attack quickly before the bulk of the Prussian army arrive as reinforcements. This is a finely matched battle with the Austrians as the attackers! $80.00 USD
