How does KGN work?
What is the smallest unit size - are soldiers moved in platoons/squads/sections?
Keen to hear more
p.s. I am slowly converting local players to historical gaming
Oh no i was hoping you would not ask , i have to be honest and say i cant remember the exact mechanics very well at all , i only played a few games under the guidance of a more knowlegable player
i do remember it allowed us to build cool unique forces and use the most obscure models i hade in my collection and i didnt have to have whole platoons of same vehicles . So having a motorcycle sidecar combo actually made a difference to scouting , a radio truck actually did something useful other than look good as a command vehicle , a heavy tank really needed some support and the infantry work better single bases but FOW bases work just as well if you can track the casualties .
i wish i could be more helpful but all i remember was i actually did enjoy the game because of the in depth detail and was not annoyed by it . Playing it with our 1/72 singles and vehicles on a huge table made a difference aesthetically too whereas FOW can look too cluttered this was all spread out and looked great.
the book was a tad expensive though so maybe find someone who can give you a demo game
