Re: New Wargamer

Hi there, and welcome to wargaming :D 1. I suggest that you begin with very small forces and try out the FUBAR rules with simple missions. FUBAR was written for wargamers and includes a range of assumptions that people do know what we're on about. 2. Read a few of the AAR's (After Action Reports) to...
