“Well designed, fantastic gameplay - A winner in Miniature gaming?”

Rules of Engagement, despite being relatively lesser known in the world war 2 miniature gaming realm, is a fantastic way to get into Miniatures.

The rulebook itself is incredibly well designed and laid out. Full color pictures, easy to read charts and an excellent flow.

There are a LOT of rules (as with any complex miniatures game) but to be honest many of them can be completely ignored; and you’ll quickly discover which ones those are! The rules are pretty straight forward though and unlike many other minis games each army is quite similar in stats (some variation, of course) and incredibly well balanced. It includes a full color painting guide for many of the standard armies and a terrain building section to help you get your table looking just right. This is a huge bonus if you ask me.

Included are all of the rules (and then some) required to play the game in a fairly straightforward layout complete with examples, painting guide, terrain tutorials and all of the Army Lists you will need to get up and playing. They also include handy reference charts so you don’t need to flip through the book endlessly.

The army lists can be a bit confusing at first but once you’ve got them figured out they all make sense.

And if you need to buy miniatures, Great Escape Games even sells those. You can get your entire army purchased as a bundle.

Expansions are available to add to the game but aren’t entirely necessary. These bring in more vehicles and armies and additional scenarios to your game.
