A squad-level, tactical game, ’65 recounts the early battles of the Vietnam War, from Ia Drang to Operation Starlight, and most everything between. Available here at The Wargame Vault

The large and beautiful counters (1" to 1.375" square) represent squads, Leaders, Heroes, Snipers, M-48 and Pt-76 tanks, and more.

This is a game created by gamers for gamers to play. ’65, squad-level gaming at its best.

Each Game Includes: 3 richly illustrated, 11” x 17” geomorphic game boards. Over 175 huge 1” and 1.375” counters. Bigger is better! 1 deck of 54 action cards. 9 Bonus Victory Condition Cards Full color rules and scenario booklet. Age: 14+ Players: 2-3 Playing Time: 1-3 hours.

Pen and Sword: Grand Battery - A Guide and Rules for Napoleonic Wargames

Pen and Sword Books: How would you have fared as one Napoleon's marshals, or in command of a division of redoutable British redcoats under Wellington? Grand Battery offers you the chance to find out. This book includes all the rules you need to play miniature wargames set in the Napoleonic Wars, plus plenty of useful background information you need to get started.

There is a concise historical overview of the events and battles of the period, as well as sections on the weapons and tactics of the various armies. The buyer's guide gives an up-to-date survey of the wealth of ranges of miniatures available and advice on which are compatible with which. Organizational tables give a breakdown of typical formations for all the major combatants and most of the minor ones (any one for a Wurttemburg infantry division?), allowing you to structure your collection and also to organize hypothetical games quickly with 'off the peg' orders of battle. Three historical scenarios are also included, each with their own specific orders of battle, maps, objectives and victory conditions.

The rules themselves, which utilize an innovative card-driven turn sequence to simulate the unpredictable ebb and flow of battle, are designed for playability, while still giving 'realistic' results and rewarding sound tactics. Though designed primarily for division level games with 25 or 15mm figures, the command and control sysyem takes account of corps or even the largest army level games and they are easily adaptable to any figure scale. Get ready to march to the sound of the guns! Available at Pen and Sword Books here

Warlord Games: New Plastic Waffen SS Miniature Boxed Set

Warlord Games launched the pre-order for their new plastic Bolt Action Waffen SS miniatures allowing you to field these dreaded, controversial yet elite soldiers on the tabletop battlefield.

Tough, lavishly equipped and politically indoctrinated, SS troops formed over 38 divisions and numerous other regimental and battalion-sized units, totalling nearly a million men under arms. Their armoured units won many plaudits for their actions, and although relationships between regular army units and the Waffen-SS were sometimes strained, most SS units fought ferociously, against great odds until the wars end in Berlin, 1945. The Waffen-SS was a controversial organisation - their zeal and discipline could not be questioned although their many documented atrocities will perhaps be their greatest legacy.
