Wargame: AirLand Battle

AirLand nerding!
Been playing a lot of this lately.  A LOT.
Sorry for the lack of posts, but I've been out of a minis funk because this game is so damn awesome.

Here's what I wrote about it on my Steam Review:
One of the best top-down war simulation games I've ever played. For RTS players, there is minimal micro and macro. The depth of this game lies in how well you can negotiate battle tactics and execute the overall strategy on any given map. There is a much larger emphasis on unit choices, deployment, execution of battle tactics and smart use of attrition-based warfare. The game takes place during the height of the Cold War and so all the tactics are based on actual modern warfare. Infantry units dominate city battles, tanks rip apart APCs and aircraft play a dominant role on the battlefield. With a ton of historically-accurate units to choose from, this game is a must-have, must-play for any modern war enthusiast. I strongly recommend it.
