This web site will feature researched WWII material with application to miniatures wargaming using the Spearhead rules by Arty Conliffe. Other items concerning WWII unit organization and campaign information are also included. Spearhead is an elegant set of rules for simulating WWII combat. With a figure scale of a tank model, gun, or stand of infantry representing a real platoon, and a ground scale of an inch equaling 100 yards, the battles of WWII can be played in your home. Spearhead games are fun, easy to learn, and give a good feel for the real combat relationships in WWII.

Spearhead TOEs :

Spearhead includes general TOEs (Tables of Organization and Equipment) for WWII armies.
