This game is a very good medium between the sophistication of Strike Legion Tactical and the plainness of a strategic boardgame where each unit would just be a counter. The scale is (nominally) one inch equals a kilometer and stand equals one company, and the standard unit is a battalion of two to four companies, organized into a brigade or regiment of several battalions (three to five is about right). Each battalion can have detachment stands added which enhance its abilities - add a scout, and you get an electronic warfare bonus in an assault. Add artillery and your ranged fire gets a bonus. Airpower is included via "air markers," which represent airstrikes of varying intensity, although maneuvering air units on the table is limited to V/STOL attack craft and transports, and for those so inclined, airships and aeronefs. There are even rules for orbital strikes and tactical nuclear weapons.

You have to be pretty flexible about how you see the game, as it's definitely not a hardcore simulator of the FFT3 variety, but it feels unique and flexible and has a broad range of options to make the game your own. I especially like the various frameworks for campaigns, and the game as a whole works particularly well with scaled battlefield maps and 3mm scale figures, feeling very much like a Command Post exercise. I highly recommend it to gamers looking for a higher-level game that has a good balance between granularity and abstraction.

Well presented set of rules at a reasonable price. Could be used to represent just about anything you wanted to, and probably more of a template to create something than a pre-packaged system (although some sample army lists are in the book)

Full rules for unit creation are included and the author is very active on the Yahoo group setup to support the rules. The WWIII supplement is good (if badly named) and shows the versatility of the system.

The rules could use more examples but other than that grab a copy and tweak to whichever period / crazy idea takes your fancy.

Personnally I was very impressed with this pdf. The organization and presentation I felt were quite well done, and after my first read through most everything made pretty good sense.

I am joined Legionnaire's yahoo group for ideas on how to represent Titans from Epic, but otherwise I feel I could easily represent just about any period I wanted - in fact after seeing what was done for modern is TWTNW I am going to try my hand at using this for WW2.
