Saw this post while I was on Xmas road trip. Now I'm back at home I printed out a couple 3 copies ('cause 1 on 1, that T34 with the short gun won't last too long vs Mr Tiger). Just have to wait for the glue to dry. If I can get some decent pix I will post them.

PnP cut out:




I did 3 sheets all told:

Does the demo/download provide rules for those who are not familiar with the series?

I just watched the YouTube video and that should be all you need; well, that and some d10-0d10-1.

EDIT: Oh yah, you have to remember that on your to hit roll special circumstances apply. On a 2 or 3, friendly fire, one of your own units is hit. On an 18 you double the intensity (damage) roll, and 19-20 kills the target. I did have to read the rules to learn that, it's not in the video. It probably should be in the video, since the Soviets are toast without it (probably toast WITH it, but still).

Right- you kind of need the rules from the original to really get all the specifics- which are linked from within the PDF. The video touches on things but doesn't go into every detail so isn't quite enough.

Planning a more extensive video treatment of combat specifically, but for the 5-min turn overview, it just got to be too lengthy.
