I told Sam I’d buy it on the strength of Scharnhorst alone! I use a modified version of the FPGA campaign rules to run linked games, so a mature system sounds too good to be true. The tactical rules are the bonus for me
I’ve started listing the above on Evil Bay. First up are the Confederates, which I have broken into lots.
This link will lead to one set; use ‘view other items’ to see the rest.

i use irregular patches of green felt with a single base of 2-3 trees on each patch, so the more dense the wood the more tree bases go on, but you can still move figures about between them
i use woodland scenics plastic trees stuck onto circular cork coasters (from Cordens in Warminster!). The bases are textured with cheap filler and scatter material and soaked in a thin coat of dark earth. I also recommend the cheap wire twist trees from Minibits which can be plugged into the coaster. The trees look a bit ‘C&N’ at first, but spray them with a variety of tree colours (!) and they come out nicely.
Hope this helps.
Yes, Mark please do. I wouldn’t mind having a go at this (probably fuelled by the Airfix Mirage & Mig dogfight double!) but I would lean towards 1967. Mind you, that’s because I want an excuse to make an Ouragan! Interested to hear what rules you decide on.
I would have a look if I was in the market for platoon-level games – but I wasn’t! FUBAR was just so simple to modify into what I wanted.
Good luck with NEIS, though!
i had a similar problem for my Cold War plans. I like Force on Force but it was too low level for me, likewise all other rules I looked at were tank-obsessed. Eventually, I stumbled on FUBAR which, with some amendments for larger games and extras like artillery, plays brilliantly. Have a look here
for my take on FUBAR. It might be the sort of thing you are after. We are playing a game tomorrow to test out some of the funky new models I’ve just painted, so there may be a few amendments down the line.

AWI. Manageable wargaming armies, close battles in difficult terrain, different uniforms, troop types, quality etc.
