Since so many here are boardgame veterans, I thought I'd start a discussion about CM:BN.

 

  FYI, I've developed a set of conversion rules for Joseph Balkoski's classic "St.-Lo" (West End Games) so it can be used as an operational layer to set up the tactical battles for CM;BN. Thes scales of these two games (battalions and companies) mesh almost perfectly.

 

  About 2/3 of the St Lo boardgame map is already being mirrored in 3D terrain for CM;BN. The final 1/3 (E of the St Lo - Isigny highway) will wait until the next CM;BN module comes out -- because that module will contain German FJ units.

 

  This sort of operational-tactical campaign using 2 great games is wargaming nirvana for me. If anyone is interested in the conversion rules, here's what they look like so far: ISt%20Lo%20-%20CMBN%20conversion%20rules%20-%20draft.docx

 

I welsome any input on these rules -- especially since it's challenging to harmonize a boardgame that uses step-losses with a PC game that counts actual men, guns, and vehicles.
