    Another playtest of Fire Team: Red Eclipse this evening.

    There was a hot time in the village this time around....

    It pays to keep in mind that what can be seen can be hit and what can be hit can be killed. There is a reason that the 'empty battlefield' tactic has evolved.

    They have always been Fire Teams in this game/series.

    I can use playtesters. If you are interested email or message me.

    In your defense, the part of the KN series that covers WW2 has squads in it.

    I made the tactical unit transition at the place where fire teams started to replace squads.

    If the series sells well enough I would expect you to see squads represented in it too.

    Good Hunting.

    The Americans are in the building!!!

    Turn 2 is finished. 2 more turns to go before we start checking to see if the game ends or gets extended.

    Good Hunting.

    The toughest close combat I've seen since this game series was created.

    They made the Americans pay dearly for that part of the building.

    This scenario fought to an exact point draw. Both sides lost roughly half their forces in this fight.

    The Soviets had this fight won during the normal game length but it went one extra turn which allowed the Americans to turn a loss into a draw.

    The first playtest of McConnell's Melee turned into a disaster for the Soviet tank company.

    Only 1 M1A1 was lost while the entire Soviet tank company was destroyed.

    Some changes are coming to the system for the larger vehicle count scenarios.

    We have to give credits to the fact that those Reds were facing state-of-the-art weaponry! Realistic, interesting and fun!
    I'm really loving this system! :)

    Playtesting McConnell's Melee lead to a change for armor leaders.

    They now have a number of units each leader can activate.

    Here are the old counters and the new ones.

    The number each leader can activate is based on each nation's platoon size. The US had 4 vehicle platoons and the Soviets had 3 vehicle platoons.
