Lock ‘n Load: Not One Step Back is Lock ‘n Load’s first foray into the Eastern Front of World War II. This expansion includes the units, rules, and scenarios that gamers need to recreate the desperate struggles on the Russian steppe, ruins of Stalingrad, and partisan-infested woodlands.
Command Soviet heavy tanks, such as the KV-1, SU-152, and JS-2. Brew up hapless T34 tanks with your incredible King Tiger. Use the Soviet Guards to lead counterattacks in the city, and the new German Pioneers to retake lost ground. Ambush German convoys with Partisans and whip cowards back into line with Commissars.
The game’s armor includes T-34/76, T-70 T-34/85, JS-2, KV-1, SU-76, SU-85, SU-152, King Tigers,A Soviet 76mm ATG prepares to take on a German King Tiger German Halftracks, and Sd 222 armored cars. Infantry additions consist of Guards (two flavors), Line Soviets (again, two types), Partisans, Commissars, Nurses, veteran German infantry, German Pioneers, Molotov Cocktails, DP-28, 45mm and 76mm Anti-tank guns, 82mm mortars, and 12.7mm machine guns.
The hex halos have been seriously tuned down. 255 die cut counters and three, mounted geomorphic mapboards.
Not One Step Back is not a complete game. This is an expansion and requires both Band of Heroes and Swift & Bold to play all twelve of its scenarios. Most, however, of the missions can be played with just Not One Step Back and Band of Heroes.
