A double-sided hex gridded game board,
folding out to approximately 28” x 23”
40 Combat cards
8 Battle dice
5 Targeting dice
Rule book with 16 scenarios
162 15mm (1/100th scale) plastic figures.
Determining the fall of shot from the off-table (reserve) artillery is achieved by first placing the special targeting template over the target hex. D6 number of targeting dice are rolled and positioned on the appropriate hexes surrounding the template. ‘Doubles’ indicate an additional hit on the target hex itself (not just the surrounding spaces). You then roll the appropriate number of Battle Dice for each hex, and the results are determined depending on the images on the upper face of each dice. You then put a ruddy great big bomb crater terrain piece down to show that area of the battlefield is now churned up and has become a huge hole in the ground.
I should point out here that the board itself, and the host of additional terrain tiles... while two dimensional (like any boardgame), are very highly attractive... if you like trench warfare, which I do. But it would be very easy to make your own 3D terrain to plop on top of the board to make the whole thing even more aesthetically attractive to game with.
The specially designed battle dice are a good idea too, as a single roll of the dice can result in a sheer indulgent plethora of different gaming possibilities. I think that`s really nice.
Victory in the game is determined by gaining Victory medals which you earn by completing pre-determined mission objectives, capturing terrain hexes, holding certain terrain objectives, and of course, by eliminating enemy units.
