That was pretty neat. I like all (well, most) games that make good use of GIS. Will follow this for sure.

(my benchmark score was 5300-ish...).

Good find, thanks @Jaguar

 

I red about Zbigniew Pisarski before so his name is a bit familiar to me.  I look forward to this and hope some people take wargames more seriously after reading this.  More info...

While we wait for the sequel sometime this year, here Frozen Synapse Prime.  A great tactical top-down shooter, best via multiplayer.  You actually get to keys when you buy it...

Its a shame there doesnt seem to be a quality 'Squad Leader' inspired game on PC.

Such a great system, so much detail. I always enjoyed the Scenario card design too.

Im going to make a SB scenario out of one of these two (or both, if they're kept simple).

Not quite "Squad Leader" but, "Advance Squad Leader" in it´s SK rule set (Starter Kit).  The reviewer below (IDJester) plays alot of ASL and has many videos on TotH and the ASL boardgame.  Tigers on the Hunt is one of my all time fav PC wargames and it´s as close as one could get to ASLSK (Advance Squad Leader Starter Kit).  Only grip I have is the UI which is a bit clunky but aside from that, it´s always a challange to play, and has a very good AI.  There is also ALOT of user made scenarios as the game includes a scenario editor.

 

What you can find with TotH...

Although not quite as the first two of the series from 1995-99, I do enjoy Jagged Alliance: Back In Action. Die hard fans of the first series saga will always stand-by the first titles but I think BIA and Crossfire are very good too.  The "Realistic Rebalancing" mod fixes and adds alot of goodnes to this title.  Played the first two titles when they came out and must say they are classics in there gener.
