[Promotional Materials] These are just a few of the promotional images +Luigi Castellani has been working on. The Maquis, Charmer, and Combat Engineer. Should have one to represent each of the eight standard classes before it's all over with. Still not sure exactly how I'm going to distribute them, but expect a few to turn up in sticker form at a few cons. I think they look pretty sharp!

[Actual Play] 3+ hours of OWB gaming. +Keith Mageau and the guys scout the French countryside, take out the machinegun nest from Ambush in the Hedgerows and assault the French farmhouse in Apples of War from the Normandy Breakout mission pack. Thanks for recording it!

More of a compliment to what you can do with OWB rather than a review!

It occurred to me that White Star + WWII: Operation WhiteBox would provide a nice foundation for a series of Rogue One missions...

Another good comparison of different tanks.

Afraid not. It was a Google image search.

[Honoring Veterans of WWII] Hello fellow OWB gamers. I'm always looking for authentic sounding names for NPCs.

Do you have a parent or grandparent who contributed to the war effort (whether in combat or on the home front)? If so, I'd be happy to include their names in future products. Not sure what role they'd play, but it would always be positive.

If you like, give me their name, something memorable about them, and the nature of their contribution to the war (rank, military branch, factory job, etc.). I'll use the name at the very least, but may be able to work in some of the other info if it fits the mission/product. I might even contact you for more details if they turn out to be a major NPC.

You can share here or email me privately. Thanks!

Another names related site I use is this... Ignore the adolescent aspect. The site lists many nationalities and has boys, girls, and family names for that nationality.

It's very hard to find WWII-related gaming maps (as opposed to fantasy or sci-fi maps), so I try to request a reshare when I see them. Feel free to do the same!

This one I see a Sherman retreating back to a fortified compound before getting hit by the Tiger that blasted through the south wall or... same fortified position being the target of a Luftwaffe air strike as the Germans attack. Enjoy!

Thanks +Skarfester

[Tactical Combat] Another solid playtest in the books. Yuri Akinov in his T-34 leaving death and destruction throughout the ruined streets of Stalingrad.

Final tally: two German infantrymen killed, one German halftrack and one Panzer IV destroyed, a second upgunned Panzer IV badly damaged and chased off.

Thanks +Brandon Goeringer​!

[Tactical Combat Rules] Currently working on an add-on that helps facilitate the use of miniatures for small action combat. Question: 15 mm or 25 mm. 15 mm seems to be more standard in wargame play while 25 mm is more accepted in RPG circles.

Which would you, as a WWII: Operation Whitebox gamer, prefer/be more likely to use at the table? I won't be making miniatures of course, but the scale will factor into the grid size on published battlemats.

Also, any thoughts as to why you prefer one over the other and/or what you'd like to see out of a miniatures add on are most welcome.
