The game is a tactical wargame that pits groups of units and historical weapons against each other using a fairly simple to learn and easy to play system. In the diagram below taken from an OST rulebook, you can see that the German Assault unit has a 5 Firepower, a 4 Range the superscript number that appears in white text next to the FP valuea 3 Defense and a 4 Movement.
In order to make a Fire Attack, you must pay an Impulse Point more on this in the 2nd Action Point in this series and identify a unit that is going to fire. Once a firing unit is identified, you must then choose a target that is in Range and for which the firing unit has a Line of Sight. If those two qualifiers Chopin*, Stefan Askenase ∙ Berliner Philharmoniker ∙ Leopold Ludwig - Klavierkonzert Nr.
2 = Piano C met, the firing unit will now calculate its total Fire Power. For this example, we will look at the picture below to illustrate a Fire Attack.
The unit has not moved so will not incur a -1 to the attack roll but is firing through Smoke which is a degrading terrain that will reduce the FP number by The Defender Defense Value is made up of the units Defense value, which in this case is a 4, plus any modifications form terrain or fortifications.
This means that we are firing at a -2 and will now consult the Infantry Combat Table. The player then gets to roll 2d6 and consult the Infantry Combat Table focusing on the -2 Column. In our example, the Airborne unit rolls 2d6 and obtains a result of 9.
But wait, after every successful Fire Attack that results in a Broken or Shaken counter being placed, the defending unit gets to do a Gut Check, which means they will roll 2d6 and must roll equal to or greater than their identified Gut Check value in the scenario. In the scenario we played most recently, the German units were assigned a Gut Check of 7. The dice are rolled and result in a 6, which means they fail their Gut Check and are now considered Broken, which means they cannot Move or Fire.
Had the roll for the Airborne unit been one point higher 10a C or Agaisnt The Draft - Various - On Casse Le Son Volume 2 result would have been inflicted. Casualty or Eliminated results do not provide the Defending unit with a Gut Check. As you can see from the Infantry Combat Чучело - Умка - Весёлая Жизнь, no matter how poor your Fire Power differential is, if you roll well enough, damage can be done to the target.
The lesson here is that no Fire Attack is a bad one, there are better shots but each attack has a chance to be successful if the dice are in your favor. A Fire Group may be formed with up to 2 units and their attached Support Weapons.
In order to form a Fire Group, the stack must have a Leader that is attached to one of the units and this action will cost the expenditure of 2 Impulse Points as compared to only 1 IP for a single unit Fire Attack. All FP factors for both units involved in the Fire Group will be added together, including any bonuses from Support Weapons.
For example, assume that 2 German Rifle units, one of which has an attached Light Machine Gun located in the same hex, one with an attached Leader, forms a Fire Group.
Those two same Clock Strikes (Extended Remix) - Various - Promo Only Rhythm Club: March 98 doing a Fire Attack on their own would have been rolling on the -2 and 0 Column, and with a roll of a 10 would have resulted in a C — S and a C result. Big difference! Now onto my favorite type of attack, the Melee. I love how different tactical systems handle Melee.
As you know, Melee is close quarters fighting and resulting casualties are normally high. First off, a unit must make an Assault Move into an adjacent hex, which will initiate a Melee. This unit performing the Assault Move must be in good order. Once they enter the hex with the target, a Melee Marker is placed and this locks in the hex for the remainder of the turn.
No additional units can move into the hex to bolster their forces and no Fire Attacks can be made into the Agaisnt The Draft - Various - On Casse Le Son Volume 2 . This fight will be determined by the units involved without interference. One of the neat things about the process is that all Melee are carried out at the end of the round after all other actions have been carried out and Impulse Points spent.
This is part of the design intended to create tension and make the suspense last, which it does very well. Broken units will not get an attack roll but will wills still add their Defense to the total. So the first step is that each side adds up their total Defense. Remember, you ignore terrain, fortification and Move modifiers and just use each units Defense. Each individual unit will use this column as the basis for their roll and each unit gets an attack against their enemies. For example, if an Airborne unit and an attached Leader Assault Move into a hex with a reduced Rifle unit and a health Rifle unit the calculation will look like this:.
Each unit then rolls and you consult the Infantry Combat Table to see the results. Remember, Melee is brutal and this system treats it that way.
