Scenario This unique position can mean the community is quite unlike another Wargaming community although can be just as toxic! All the dice are put in a bag and are drawn out. In the process the Russian lines become dangerously over-extended. The Germans regroup and counter-attack, quickly regaining most of the territory lost to the Russian advance.
Every time a unit is hit at least once by another unit they take a single pin marker. Having at least one pin will force the unit to take an order test when they want to perform any order except Down.
Veterans, regulars, and inexperienced troops have a morale level of 10, 9, and 8 respectively and the order test works exactly like a Leadership test in 40K and Fantasy: Each pin marker acts as a negative modifier to the morale level.
If they fail, they simply go down. The final core mechanic is how shooting works. Every unit hits on a d6 roll of a 3 or more, but plenty of modifiers apply, including distance, their movement, how much cover the enemy unit is in, and pin markers. If a unit hits, they give a pin marker to the enemy, then roll damage. The likelihood of wounding is based off the veterancy of the enemy troops and the pen value of the weapon used.
Warlord have produced a variety of books, allowing players to represent most fighting forces which took part in World War II. Each book allows both generic platoons which consist of a basic structure, with any unit or vehicle allowed or "Theater Selector" platoons, which have more restrictions but also some bonuses; for example, most German theater selectors allow two MMG teams, as opposed to the single team that the generic platoon allows.
These Theater Selectors allow players to represent a very specific time period or battle during the war. Each army has two or more special rules, representing the nation during the Second World War. Infantry are practically the same within every army, while every army has access to some form of veterans, etc.
The only difference is that the SS get the Fanatics option. Empire In Flames is a theatre book but it also contains the army lists and unit entries for all Chinese armies. There are also additional supplements which add to the game, such as Tank War , which allows players to field armies of tanks instead of infantry, and includes scenarios to fight famous tank battles like El Alamein, Kursk, and the US Third Army's attempt to break the German siege at Bastogne; and Ostfront , which gives a range of scenarios and special rules to represent the brutal fighting in and around Russia, from Khalkhin Gol and the Winter War to the Soviet capture of Berlin among others.
But no wargame is perfect, so there is always something the game's community can bitch about.
And for Bolt Action, there is a number of things that are either universally agreed to be awful or constantly be argued over:. Technically not an expansion, but not a separate game, Konflikt 47 is the idea that World War 2 kept going and started to get weird. How weird you may ask? Nazi zombie, werewolf, bear men, vampire men, tesla tank, walker tank, jetpack trooper, robots weird.
The story is that the it turns out that dropping a nuke opens something called the "Rift". Before the rift was fully understood, the US dropped a nuke on Germany and formed another Rift. As it turns out, the Rift spews out signals that can be translated into all the weird shit you see in the start of this paragraph. Germany now has a second wind, Soviets leave the allies, and war continues.
The game is notable in that it uses basically the same rules as Bolt Action 1st edition, with some added in stuff about fear you know, because of the bear people and shit and reactions. However, Warlord has not fleshed out rules and models for every army in the core game. Jump to: Retrieved from " https: Namespaces Page Discussion.
By December Soviet reinforcements arrive from the east and the Russians begin their counter-offensive. Although the German forces are victorious across a wide front the campaign fails to achieve its objective. It is the turning point in the war, although much bitter fighting still lies ahead on the Eastern Front.
Between December and the end of March the Axis forces are pushed back and the immediate threat to Moscow is ended. The Russians are expecting the Germans to attack in the north and are ill prepared. In August the Germans advance across a broad front and appear to be sweeping all before them. At this point a decision is taken to change the original plan to bypass Stalingrad and to occupy the city instead — fighting continues throughout September and October. Within days , Axis troops are encircled and trapped.
By February the remnants of the German 6th Army surrender at Stalingrad.
In the process the Russian lines become dangerously over-extended. The Germans regroup and counter-attack, quickly regaining most of the territory lost to the Russian advance. This German counter-offensive results in the third battle of Kharkov which witnesses bitter hand-to-hand fighting over the city. None the less the Russians are severely beaten, demonstrating that even heavily outnumbered and under-strength German formations remain extremely capable.
Their objective is to attack Soviet forces in the Kursk salient, surround and destroy them, before consolidating a sound defensive position against further Russian progress. The Germans attack in a pincer movement from the north and south. The Russians have already learned of the German plans and have prepared their defences in depth.
Unknown to the Germans, the Kursk salient has been turned into a huge killing field. In the north the attack is repelled almost at once.
In the south the fighting hangs in the balance, but the Russian defences hold out. By 17 July Operation Citadel is cancelled without ever achieving the necessary breakthrough. The Russians begin their counter-offensive even before the German operations are over — rapidly breaking through the German lines and recapturing Kharkov for the final time on 23 August. The battle of Kursk, encompassing both the German offensive and Russian counter-offensive, is the largest tank battle of all time.
With something in the order of , troops lost and more than a thousand armoured vehicles destroyed, the battle of Kursk is arguably the most decisive engagement in the whole war. Never again would the Germans be able to mount a strategic offensive on any significant scale. The Soviets launch an offensive across a broad front stretching from the Black Sea almost to the Baltic.
Their objective is to recapture the eastern Ukraine and drive the Germans back across the Dnieper. After hard fighting, including drops by Soviet paratroops, a number of bridgeheads are established across the river. Finding their position indefensible the Germans withdraw.
The fighting continues through the winter and by early January the first Soviet troops cross into Poland. About half the encircled troops break out after abandoning all their heavy equipment.
Hitler is convinced that the main Russian attack will come from the Ukraine, and has withdrawn much of the strength of Army Group Centre and redeployed artillery, tanks and troops to the south. This is to prove a fatal mistake.
In one of the largest Russian offensives of the war the Soviets drive into the German lines and feed in reserves to trap the encircled German forces before they can escape. The Russians advance rapidly, liberating Minsk by 3 July and reaching within ten miles of Warsaw by the end of the month. The almost total collapse of German resistance forces the German armies to the north and south to withdraw westward, their positions now being divided by Russian-held territory.
The Soviets advance across a broad front. To the north a supporting attack the East Prussian offensive succeeds in cutting off the German troops in East Prussia. None the less, the isolated Germans resist the Russian advance with great determination, some continuing to fight on until the end of the war. The offensive is called to a halt a mere 45 miles from Berlin. It was a decision that was to cost the Russian soldiery dear during the battle for Berlin in April.
As the battle for Germany rages in the north the Soviets move southwards. The Vienna offensive takes the Russian armies deep into Austria. The battle for Vienna sees fierce street fighting that ends with the fall of the city on 13 April. The defenders are disorganised and badly equipped — the remnants of armies that have retreated before the relentless Soviet advance.
Amongst them are Volkssturm militia and Hitler Youth — poorly equipped and inexperienced units made up of old men and boys. The US and British air forces bomb the city extensively before the assault begins.
During the ensuing fighting many isolated SS units hold out to the last man until the buildings they defend are blasted to dust by artillery. Most are killed or captured by the Russians.
The city is surrendered to the Russians on the morning of 2 May. Taken from Campaign
