I don't think anyone has mentioned 'Tide of Iron' yet on Dakka. It's a new board/mini game from Fantasy Flight Games on WW2 tactical combat. It is a cross between the classic Squad Leader board game and Memoir '44. BGG has a few photos of a mock-up that was using counters instead of minis http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/22825
'Tide of Iron' is supposed to have a ton of plastic figures. Infantry are roughly 15-20mm and will fit four to a base. Vehicles are individual and will be in a slighly smaller scale. The board is designed to be variable with a base mat and tile sets for terrain. It uses a card system of some kind. Due out in December.
