Description Edit | History

A board game based on the classic novel by Dave Drake. "The Hovertank is amazingly silent for its fusion powered bulk. Even the hiss of the main laser turret would seem quiet to an ancient tank commander." Artillery, tanks, infantry, shells from the sky, etc. "Soon the enemy will know that Colonel Alois Hammer's Slammers have landed."

The map represents various battlefield and terrain the mercenaries fought over the latter half of the 3rd Millennium. It has the usual roads, forest, slopes, clear, lake, city, swamp, hill, river, bridge, fortress and rubble terrain. Hammer's Slammers is a basic Hex & Chit game with CRT's, terrain modifiers, and fairly easy rules (7 pages of actual rules).

Okay, I admit it. This is the file that should have been uploaded as a result of the proofing that I should have done in the first place.
