These scenarios are designed to be used with almost any American Civil War regimental or brigade level set of rules.  Rules are included for figures based on 20, 30, 40, 50, and 100 historic men per figure/stand.  Times are given for 10, 15, and 20 minutes per game turn.  Maps are in full color, as are the numerous color photographs of the modern battlefield.  This book does not contain any core rules for playing miniature games.

Old School Tactical

Old School Tactical

 

Old School Tactical is the first in a dynamic series of fresh, tactical wargames. OST simulates, through an easily-learned game system, small unit engagements on the Eastern Front during 1941-42.

Two players contest each scenario using counters representing the soldiers, guns, and vehicles that fought these desperate battles. On each turn play goes back and forth between the sides as Impulse Points are spent to enable a player's forces to act. When the battle is over, casualty and victory points are tallied and a victor is declared.

But we said, "system," didn't we? And a system it is. Eastern Front 1941-42 is just the first game using Shayne Logan's Old School Tactical (OST).

Infantry target other soft units and attack using their Firepower value against the target’s Defense value. The attack can be modified by Leadership, support weapons and terrain effects. And when things get intense, Assault moves into enemy hexes result in deadly Close Combat. Dice rolls are made using the Infantry Combat Table and results are implemented.

Attacking armored vehicles requires a roll to Hit the vehicle at range.  If a Hit is scored, the Firepower value of the attacker’s gun is used against the target’s front or flank Defense value.  Dice rolls are made using the Vehicle Combat Table and results are enforced. Vehicles may also use their HE Firepower value and secondary armaments directly against soft targets using the Infantry Combat Table.
