The Marines start with some units already landed on the beach and a wave just entering the map including some armor, there is...

I'll post an AAR here on an encounter between similar sized infantry units. Still learning to get screen shots attached and embedded, so bare with me.

Guys A couple of weeks ago, I was trying to get my brother to play WaW with me and the one thing he disliked about the game was the chit pull system.

So I came up with a different system - different, but mostly the same. I went into photoshop and produced a set of cards for the 1st ed Eisenbach Gap just to try it out. The idea is that...
