There is a detailed article about the scope, mechanics and plans for the game in the latest issue of "Miniature Wargames with Battlegames".

I wonder if the compositions of each infantry unit will be possible with a box of Airfix soldiers? Their old, old infantry had Panzerschreks, but did they ever do infantry with Panzerfausts?

I hope there's special rules for all of thos odd prone, dead or surrendering figures you used to get too :-D
