Once you’ve put in the hours studying what forces to field and painting up scores of miniatures, it’s time for them to hit the battlefield. There are countless books and movies about World War II to inspire an interest in recreating classic battles or make up your own “what if” scenarios.
The Flames of War site offers dozens of historic scenarios set-up for play with accompanying maps, force lists and special rules. The WWPD (What Would Patton Do?) website also offers a list of FOW scenarios divided into Late, Mid and Late war periods. Easy Army, a very handy online FOW force-building website, has a really great interactive map of European and North African scenarios color-coded by period.
As time goes on, I’ll post more of my after-action reports (AAR) on my historic scenario gaming as well as some other special event gaming from the Metropolitan Wargamers club.
