I just posted a new article to Line of Departure Online Features. This one covers one of my personal favorite units of World War II, and one of the most effective of the Pacific War, the United States Army's 77th Infantry Division. Not a traditional elite like the Marines, or a band of hand-picked and…Continue

My game of #Warfighter ended pretty badly. Both soldiers got about 3 objective locations in. Then I got two cartel lookouts and they in turned spawned about 2 tangos each. Before I knew it the situation had gotten out of control and Sgt. Holte had been shot twice while Pvt. Thomas was suppressed so badly he could only use his actions to try and get out of being pinned.
The spec op was pretty bad and by turn 5 I gave up. Those drug huts would…

It's been ten years since I designed my first tactical game system and sometimes I fantasize about designing yet another. One that uses all the designing tricks that I’ve learned, something that would give us all as much pleasure without any nit-picky rule pain. So what *might* a new Mark H. Walker tactical system look like? Here are some things I would and wouldn't include.…

Hi Jim, yes it is alive, I just haven't found anyone interested in playtesting this.
The game is NOT PZL/PZB/AIW although it originated as such. I have made a new game based on some of the concepts and feel of the game, but the game is designed around being an internet/network hosted game with a completely different set of combat rules and mechanics, taking advantage of FOW and theoretics of combat.
The latest version is 0.29.8 which can be downloaded at…Continue
