A gaming rule set for ww2 using 25mm minis. Written for the Eastern Front.
  INTRODUCTION:Ostfront: Treads, Boots and Bombs is a game set on the Eastern Front post 1942.One player takes the role of the German Wehrmacht and the other the Russian Red Army.They have at their disposal divisions of men, tanks and guns. The objective is the utterdestruction of their opponent.The rules favour the attack. It is much easier to attack than defend against an attack especially in an open area. Tanks are more resilant that other types of units but cannotsurvive a torrent of fire. The rules are an adaption of  High Command a free wargamesrule set, itself an adaption of  KISS Rommel both are available Game Concepts:Dice: The game uses a 10 sided dice or D10. When a roll is called for subtract or add anymodifiers to the number rolled for the result. The roll can never be lower than 1 or higherthan 10. A roll of a 1 always fails regardless of modifiers. Stands: These represent a battalion of infantry or roughly 300 soldiers, a battalion of tanks or roughly 20 vehicles, a battalion of artillery or roughly 12 guns. Each standincludes that units organic support of artillery, armour and infantry. It is assumed that atank battalion has a complement of infantry and the infantry battalion has a complementof anti-tank weapons. A stand is 6cm wide and 4cm long. Four figures represent aninfantry stand plus their their relevant vehicle. A recon stand consists of two figures eithermotorcycles or armoured cars. A cavalry stand consists of two figures. One tank is used torepresent a tank stand. One artillery piece plus their relevant vehicle represents a stand. A supply stand should have a tent, barrels or ammunition mounted on it. Prestige: These represent a specific stand's exceptional ability in combat, it does notmean they are better per se but are more lavishly equipped, possess a superiorcommander or field new or advanced equipment. These should be represented in someway on the stand for example Heavy Infantry on a tank stand should have a machinegun figure mounted on it or Improved Signals in an artillery stand should have a radioman figure Substitutions:  A stand may be substituted with another stand during the setup phase.This allows divisions to take on unique equipment not included in the TO&E. Saving Throw: This represents a stand's survivability under fire. If successfully hit thenroll a D10 with appropriate modifiers. If the number is greater than the saving throwneeded for that unit then it survives if not it is dispersed. If a Recon or Tank  stand is hitby a Heavy Anti-Tank or Heavy Tank stand it recieves no saving throw . Headquarters: Every HQ purchased as part of a Divsion or Corps or Brigade is a preciousresource. They allow stands that are dispersed to be replaced and returned to play.Protect the HQ stands from your opponent, in addition because HQ stands concentrate thedivisional anti-aircraft guns they are not subject to the same air support rules as otherstands.  SETUP: Both players receive 5 Build Points to create their force to achieve the objectives.During setup the following rules apply: The German player may purchase 1 Panzer Grenadier Division at the reducedcost of 2 build points.The Russian player may purchase 1 Tank Corps at the reduced cost of 2 buildpoints. The Russian player also receives 1 free Tank Brigrade.Both players recieve 1 free Infantry Divsion.  After players have selected their force they may then assign a Prestige Point for eachHQ in their force. These may be spent to add 1 Prestige Ability from the following list toa stand. Each stand may only have 1 ability. You can designate 1 Division or Corps as a Waffen SS Division for the German player or Guards Division/Corps for the Russianplayer. These stands may have 1 stand add 2 abilities, to designate a stand in the waycosts 1 Prestige Point in addition to the point costs for these Prestige Abilities .
