I started last month a design about the Classical Germano-Russian Conflict of World-War 2.
This period has fascinated me for a long time, and I am still questing for the "perfect" East Front Game. Right now a modified AH/L2 Russian Campaign is still my favorite.
The one I am in the midst of making will certainly not be THE definitive simulation. But it is an interesting challenge:
I want to design it with not more than 4-6 pages of rules, an 11"x17" map, large hexes (15wx22h hexes), and... Well... Only 40 counters ( ! ). The low number of counters is already a challenge. And it has to be simple, yet fun, tense and realistic.
The map is done, the counters are pretty much decided, the rules too. Still some chrome to add, victory conditions to refine... I am still changing the way the combat results are done, but everything should be finished by the end of this month.
I'll post some pictures/comments later.
