Review: Introduction to Battlegroup

Some time ago I did an introduction to Battlegroup on my blog, and here's a link http://volleyfirepainting.blogspot.com/2016/09/introduction-to-battlegroup.html

2 years and lots of games later, I've found the rules to remain constantly fresh and interesting. The breakdown of the war into various campaign settings, gives the a surprisingly unique flavour to each subject, especially with the core rules remaining the same. Interestingly, I've found the game to really reward using the historical tactics of your chosen force,  something very welcome I think.

A superb game, much more historical in feel than Flames of War or Bolt Action, with reasonably similar sized forces, but with less room to exploit army lists, and also very intuitive and accessible. I love it.
