Panzerschlacht WWII Rules

Panzerschlacht is a set of free wargames rules for WWII micro armor. The author writes:

In our games we mark all casualties on the vehicle and figure bases. This allows a paperless game with no book-keeping whatever. By allowing the models to represent more than one vehicle it becomes possible to field an entire panzer division on an eight by six foot table.
