Werwolf: Insurgency in Occupied Germany, 1945-48
« on: June 12, 2022, 06:00:44 AM »
Hi Grogheads!
I'm just posting here to let you know about my upcoming alternate history wargame - "Werwolf: Insurgency in Occupied Germany, 1945-48," soon to be available for pre-order from Legion wargames. It's inspired by GMT's COIN series, so has a mix of euro and wargame elements and is focused on insurgency and early Cold War political tensions. It is for 1-4 players.

The setting is an alternate timeline where Nazi guerrillas (the Werwolves, a real thing and one of the game's 4 factions) continue to fight an insurgency against the Allies and the Soviets in Germany beyond 1945, while also being opposed by anti-Nazi guerrillas led by von Stauffenberg and known as the Edelweiss Movement. There are 100 event cards based on real or distorted historical events.

I am the designer and I am happy to answer any questions here. I'm also very active on twitter with game updates so follow me on Clint_Davey1 to keep track of this one.

Thanks for your time!

I know at least one wargaming group which looks forward to playing it!  :bd:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
