After four years of success with the original Operation Squad WWII skirmish rules, the authors give us a new version which includes all the experience gained during the development of other successful games like Assault Platoon (platoon level gaming), Wild West Chronicles (Far West) and Centuria (Ancient Battle).
Thanks to many of your suggestions and some newly developed and tested mechanics, we’ve moved a step ahead. The rules are deeply rooted in the old system but are now more streamlined and more faithfully represent fire-fights between smaller units, where the loss of even one man makes the difference.
We simplified rules for Vehicles to make them more balanced and playable. Each game of OS EVOLUTION sees you fighting a scenario with a set objective - the side that reaches their objective in the given number of turns will be the winner! The battles cover all World War II theatres but are mainly set between 1943 and 1945.
Each player can command a Squad of men from the American, British, Russian or German armies and each army can call upon regular units, elite units and special teams, while the points values provided will allow you to play enjoyable, balanced games.
To help you learn the game faster we’ve separated Sections and Vehicles (which deserve their own chapters) from single models; after learning the basic rules you’ll be able to play with Sections and enrich your Squads with new Units. The last step will be learning how to use vehicles to make your games even more epic! Lead your squad into glory! This time you are the Squad leader…
We have included lists for American, British, Russian and German armies; there are a total of twelve to choose from, including Red Devils, Fallschirmjägers, Rangers and Commandos.
Each weapon is given a points value. The use of charts has been reduced to a minimum and the whole game system is based on adding or subtracting six-sided dice.
These rules contain three standard scenarios covering typical missions such as reconnaissance, taking a town and rescuing a spy.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to show your bravery on the battlefield!
This is a stand-alone game and include rules for vehicles and section-level play.
