I bought Chain of Command yesterday and from what I've read so far its a much more historical alternative to Bolt Action but just as playable.

I'm very keen on Force on Force, but wasn't aware of much in the way of an official WW2 supplement. Peggy Carpenter at Ambush Alley told me that now that they are no longer publishing through Osprey, they are going to slow down the pace at which they produce supplements, but a WW2 set of rules is being contemplated. At present, as far as I know, the only WW2 related material is some small scale scenarios in the 'Classified - Special Operation Missions 1940-2010' supplement. The forum contains some 'unofficial' rules, and at Colours last year there was a demo game using Force on Force set in England under Nazi invasion, for which I have a copy of their amendments.

Is any of this what you are referring to, or have I missed the release? I have some figures for Bolt Action, but don't think much of the rules, whereas Force on Force grabbed my interest from the start and seems to me to have some unique and easily understandable and playable methods of representing complex situations on the table top. I'm keeping my figures in eager anticipation of a WW2 Force on Force game, and am having to control my impatience at their slow arrival.

Try and have a look at Chain of Command Ralph, there are some great ideas that make it very realistic without over complicating things.

Rob, how do you fancy doing the Bolt Action game this week as planned then trying the same set up with Chain of Command the following week?
