28mm BTD WWII Germans

28mm WWII Project:
Making it off the painting table are a dozen Black Tree Designs' WWII German infantry.  These 12 figures include a mix of riflemen, SMGs, and LMG.
BTD Germans are an easy on the eyes diversion from more intricate, 15mm figures such as Napoleonics or SYW.  I have been enjoying the slow build of this project and I have more than enough British and Germans for a small game.  My plan is to game at a 1:1 level but rules still elude me.  Perhaps, some derivative of the western gunfight rules, The Rules With No Name (TRWNN) would work?  I recently downloaded Leahy's Company Commander from the Yahoo group but have yet to read through the rules.  Company Commander is geared towards 1:1 fights so it fits the game level.  Using CC over TRWNN would eliminate the need to convert/create rules mechanisms from scratch.  I like that idea.

Below are close up photos of threesomes from the 12 figures shown in the above group photo.

  1. Rules for WWII skirmish have always been a struggle. I bought Bolt Action, but it doesn't seem very interesting. There must be something out there for us.

    1. You'll find a copy of Company Commander in your mailbox. Perhaps, you could give them a look and see if there is anything of interest, therein?

      Jake recommends Battleground WWII. Have you tried that?

      Yes, we must come up with something...

  2. I have always loved, and continue to use, Battleground WWII. They do an excellent job of capturing the essence of small unit tactics. (Suppression and maneuver). A bit heavy on effect markers, but nice for less than a platoon per side.

    1. Oh, and nice figures. Very clean detail, and the subdued helmet covers came out very well.
