    Help finalising a new rule set...

    Hi all.
    I have written a rough outline for a fast paced modern wargame (its just 14 pages long!)
    And I though it may be adapted to be used with 40k minatures.

    Specificaly for those gamers who think the 40k game should be an intuitive tactical modern wargame.
    Those that like the abstracted strategic focused game , can play GW plcs version!

    I have simply used the modern game mechanics curently available to arrive at a game based on modern unit interaction , in the most straight forward way I can think of.

    Armour Rating (AR) is deducted from the Armour Piercing value (AP) of the weapon to arive at the save roll required.
    ALL units have an AR between 1 (Grot) and 15 (Monolith)
    All weapons have a AP between 5(Grot blasta) and 12 (Tau railgun.)

    This simple resolution method covers ALL physical damage across all unit weapons.
    Eg SMs firing Bolters (AP7) at Ork mob (AR 2).
    7-2=5, The orks need to roll 5 or more (5 + save) to save them from the bolters damage.

    Some weapons can not cause damage on some targets.
    (You need an anti tank support weapon to damage a tank!)

    And some weapons automaticaly damage some targets.
    (Any Grot on the recieving end of a Meltagun is just instanly vaporised!)

    Morale Damage is coverd by a simple supression mechanic.
    Targets AR value + remaining Hit Pionts (wounds)=Supression rating.
    Attackers no of shots + supression bonus = Supression value of the attack.

    If the Attackers Supression value is higher than the Target supression rating, the attacker supresses the target.(Shaken)

    If the attackers Supression value is over DOUBLE the targets supresion rating , the attacker Neutralised the target.(Stunned.)

    Units have to pass a morale check to remove morale damage.(Roll over the units Morale Grade on a D6/D10?)

    Any how , My 14 page PDF is 135 kb and I can only attach 19kb!
    So I will have to copy paste sections into my post.Here is the first section.

    Unit definitions.

    The following definitionsare used to describe the basic unit types found in theS.T.A.C.S. war game rules.Units fall into two basic types;-

    Type 1 ,Units madeup of multiple models that are removed individually to denote theloss in unit effectivness. Most commonly infantry units , butalso includes individually mounted infantry, like bikers, cavalry andvarious beasts used in alien armies.

    Type 2 ,Units madeup of singular models that have multiple systems/ functions integralto the model. Most commonly crewed vehicles , but alsoincludes monstrous creatures emulating vehicle roles in some alienarmies.

    Vehicle type units tend tocarry multiple support /full support weapons ,and may have transportcapacity to carry other less well armoured units.

    Unit type andorganisation.

    Units are defined as thefollowing.

    Core .(The playersfirst selection, that determines what HQ and Specialised units may beused.)

    HQ (The playerssecond selection that determines what support units may be used.)

    Support .(The unitstaken to support the force under HQ direction.)

    Specialised (theunits taken to support the core units directly)

    Restricted.(Canonly be taken if a set number of specialised units are taken.)

    Each force has a choice ofCore unit type ,Infantry , Motorised, Armoured ,and Airborne.

    The 'core unit group' listunits to be taken, and the relevant unit value.(As some units are theequivalent of multiple units.) Other units are values equalised bysynergistic methods.

    (NOTE;-Army will be written later,)



    Defined by a units movement type, ( Legs, [L] wheels[W]tracks [T] and hover [H]and its movement rate.(How far the unitmay move across the playing area, when taking a move action.)


    ArmourResistance to damage( AR)how hard the unit is to damage.

    Damagepoints (DP) how muchdamage the unit can take.

    Stealth(S) How well the unit canconceal itself on the battle field.

    Commandand Control.

    Moral Grade,(MG) how willing the unit is to fighton .

    Command Value (CV).what effect the unitleader/hero has on the actions of this /near by units.


    This is defined by the units weaponcharacteristics.(These will be given in detail in the relevantsections on how to carry out attacks.)

    Thegame turn

    As this war game is focused on tacticalinteractions, I want each unit to decide on the actions they aregoing to take in the next minute or two.

    And as the actions only cover a short period of time ,I want them to only be able to perform 2 action per game turn.

    This set of two actions per game turn , represents thetactical 'orders ' given to the unit by the unit leader or commandunit.

    ('Dig in and give covering fire', 'followme...opportunity fire!', 'withdraw in good order','CHARGE!!' 'keepyour head down and follow me...' etc.)

    'Orders'aremade up of the following actions.

    Move,move up to the (M)value of the unit.

    Attack,attack using weapons in effective range of target unit.

    Ready,take the time to make maximum effect of the following actions.

    This gives us the following orders.

    Advance,(A)move then attack.

    Double,(D)movethan move.

    Evade,(E)attack then move.

    Firesupport,(F) readythen attack.

    Infiltrate(I) ,readythen move.

    Howdo I give orders to units?

    Create enough counters with the relevant letters clearlymarked on one side .(Or even create your own symbols, they are yourcounters after all!)

    During the 'Command phase,' of the game turn , placeONE order counter next to each of your units face down.(The opposingplayer should not know what your units are going to do!And you don'thave to give all your units the same order, )

    If units have a moral damage counters ,suppressed (S),neutralised (N) or routed(R) , they DO NOT receive an order counter,but follow the actions listed for units with moral damage later inthe rules.

    GameTurn Phases.

    The game turn is broken down into phases.

    Each phase lets players do set things in a set order. Asa lot of things have to be done in the course of a game turn , itseasy to loose track of where you are if everything happens all atonce!

    Command phase.

    This is when the players ;-

    1)Issue orders to their units, ( units can be givendifferent orders to each other.)

    2)Request off table support.(Call in artillery or airstrikes, and reserves.)

    Primaryaction phase.

    This is when one player reveals their unit ordercounters one at a time , and performs the FIRST ACTION of the orderwith each unit as their order counter is revealed .

    Then the opposing player reveals their unit ordercounters one at a time, and performs the FIRST ACTION of the orderwith each unit as their order counter is revealed .

    Secondaryaction phase.

    This is when one player removes their unit ordercounters one at a time , and performs the SECOND ACTION of the orderwith each unit, as their order counter is removed.

    Then the opposing player removes their unit ordercounters one at a time, and performs the SECOND ACTION of the orderwith each unit, as their order counter is removed.

    Resolution phase.

    This is when players;-

    1)'Rally' units with 'moral damage'.(Suppressed/neutralised units take a moral test.)

    2)Plot arrivals.(See if /where reserves and off tablefiring arrive!)


    A unit may move up to its mobility value in incheswhen it takes a movement action.

    Distances are measured from the same point on themoving model,(Usually the front of the base or hull)

    Movement type determines how well the unit moves acrossthrough different terrain types found on the battle field.

    Movement types are ,Legs (L), wheels (W)tracks (T) hover (H) .These types are listed after themobility value.

    E.g., slow infantry 3”(L)Infantry 4”(L) fast 'light'infantry 5”(L).

    Buggies-Bikes 12” (W), Tanks 6”(T) Speeders, jetbikes 12”(H)

    Models mounted on bases use these to determine interactions, vehicles models NOT mounted on bases use their hull todetermine interactions.

    Models can not move through the space occupied byanother model. If there is a gap wider than the models base /hull ,the model may pass through it.

    Unit ALWAYS move at the speed of the slowest model inthe unit. A unit may NOT turn and change facing during a attackaction!Only during a ready,or move action.

    Its important for the units to be looking where they aregoing and pointing weapons at their intended target to be effectivein the game.(Fire arcs will be discussed later.)

    UnitCoherency .

    Infantry unit models have a coherency range of 2 ''.

    ALL other units/models have a coherency range of4''.(Bikes,cavalry,beasts,vehicles,monsters. etc)

    The coherency range is the maximum gap left betweenindividual models in a unit ,or attached to a unit. Measured betweenthe closet points between the models bases or hull.

    E.g.,An armoured infantry squad , mounted in an APC,dis-embark. ALL the individual infantry models must remain within 2”of each other , but the APC can be 4” away from any infantry modelin its unit, to be considered to be in unit coherency.

    Units that are out of coherency range can NOT receiveany Command bonuses from leaders/heroes. So its best to move a unitsmodels back into coherency as soon as possible.

    (NOTE:-Also note the 'order counters' can be used with alternative unit activation game turn mechanic if prefered.)

    Ill stop there for comments and questions...

    I am sorry about the formatting problems...
    But I am looking for a site to host the PDF , so you can down load it and read it better....
    Anyhow here is the next section of the rules...

    There are lots of different war zones ,and the battlefields are littered with different structures , plant life and geological features, in varying amounts.
    It would be impossible to list every possible type of terrain feature we could use.
    So as with the combatants in the game , I will list basic types and characteristics , to let the players decide how to classify their own terrain features.

    Terrain can effect units in the game in three ways.
    1)Modify movement rates.
    (The way terrain modifies movement rates, movement modifier depends on movement type and terrain type, as given in the table below.)

    2)Provide concealment .
    (A piece of terrain with a concealment rating (Cr), means units with a equal or higher stealth value may claim cover from it.
    E.g. A low wall Cr 2, can conceal units with S of 3 or higher. S 1 and 2 units are just to bulky to claim cover from the wall.

    3)Provide physical protection from damage.
    Any terrain that gives physical protection from damage , like fortifications, give a AR bonus to units claiming cover from the terrain.(E.g. concrete bunker, AR +2 )

    Moment type/Legs(L)Wheels(W)Tracks (T)Hover(H).
    Open ground.No adjustment.No adjustment No adjustment .No Adjustment.

    Road /hard surface.+1"/+2"/+1" No adjustment.

    Light woods.-1 ''Impassable-2 '' Impassable

    Heavy woods.-2 ''Impassable Impassable Impassable.

    Water feature*-2 or Impassable. Impassable Impassable No adjustment.

    Linear Obstacle* -2 or Impassable Impassable -2 or Impassable No adjustment

    Buildings.*-1 to move into/out of.ImpassableImpassableImpassable

    *Buildings ,linear obstacles and water features vary considerably ,so please use common sense to decide and agree on terrain effects, before the game starts.

    A shallow stream may be deemed -2,to (L) (W) and (T), but a deep marsh may be deemed Impassible to all but (H) type movement .

    Usually infantry is the only unit able to occupy buildings , but exceptions arise, eg an aircraft hanger is large enough to be occupied by most types of units.

    Special movement abilities.
    Amphibious mode (A), allows units to treat water features as open ground.

    Difficult terrain mode (D), allows units to treat light woods,rubble and linear obstacles as open ground.(Dozer blade attachments etc.)

    Jump jet mode, (J) allows the unit to make short powered jumps over terrain features , up to 8” distance in a straight line .To clear higher terrain features the jump length is shortened to compensate, deduct 2” off the jump length for each hight level of the highest intervening terrain.
    (Use the storey heights of buildings as a rough guide to hight levels.)

    Flying units .
    We assume flying units usually move without restriction at altitudes higher than the highest piece of terrain on the table.

    IF a flying unit wishes to interact with a unit/element on the game area.(Drop off/ pick up a unit, or make a low level attack.)
    It must be called into action during the command phase of the owning player.

    Flying units always enter the table using a (D) order , diving to low level. Then count as a M 12” (H) unit, until they decide to leave the action, by taking another (D) action and climbing to high altitude.(Out of the weapon range of units on the table.)

    Area terrain.
    Sometimes terrain features have clearly defined boundaries.(A building for example.)
    Other features are just representative , e.g. a few model trees mounted on a base to represent a wood.(For practical and financial reasons...)

    In the case of these representative bases , use the base edges to define the boundaries.
    As long as terrain features have their edges clearly defined in some way, its OK.

    Units entirely behind a terrain feature , are said to be concealed if their (S) value is higher than the (Cr) of the terrain. Concealed units can NOT be targeted.
    A unit that has some models /part of a model exposed ,(out side the boundary of the terrain feature) can still claim cover if their (S) value is less than the terrains Cr value.

    Some times hight differences come into play on gauging line of sight. Simply extend the highest point on the terrain feature across the entire area of terrain.

    If a model is unstable in/on a terrain feature, rather than risk damaging any thing, simply substitute the model with a 'marker' (piece of paper , small coin etc.)to mark its actual position.

    A unit is taking an ATTACK action, follows the following actions.
    3)Resolving physical damage
    4)Resolve moral damage

    Targeting .
    When a unit attempts to spot (acquire) a target , use the unit leader,or hero, to determine LOS .
    If a unit has NO leader or hero , simply use the closest model to the intended target. (This model is referred to as 'the spotter'.)

    The spotter picks a point on the table within their LOS*,all enemy models within a 6" radius of this 'target point' may be eligible targets for attacks.
    ( IF the attacking unit can acquire the target unit(s), and have LOS to the intended target models.)
    This 12" diameter area is called the 'attack zone'.

    Acquisition of targets.
    Acquisition ,(spotting, identifying and bringing weapons to bear on a target,) is a very complex process with multiple factors to be taken into account. I have tried to resolve this complex and important process into a simple and intuitive method.

    The attacking units , rolls a D6 and adds any applicable modifiers.

    If the attacking units acquisition score score beats the target units Stealth (S) value they acquire the target unit!

    Acquisition modifiers.(Add to attackers acquisition roll)
    Target unit attacked acquiring unit last action +3
    Target used support or fire support weapon last action+1
    Target unit within 18'' +1.
    Target unit moved more than 6 '' in attackers LOS in its last action. +1
    Equipment modifiers,+variable (targeting equipment etc.)

    Stealth modifiers.(Add to targets Stealth value.)
    Attacking unit over 36'' away.+1
    Target unit in cover +1
    Target unit on Infiltrate (I)or fire support (F)orders.+1
    Equipment modifiers,+ variable.(camouflage , smoke dispensers etc.)

    The attacker resolves hits on the models closest to the shooting unit .These target models MUST have hits allocated to them until they are removed as casualties.(OR if vehicles or monsters suffer stunned or worse damage.)
    A unit may split fire between target units units within the 'target zone' .

    Targets stay aquired, until the LOS between the units is broken, or the unit wishing to attack suffers supression or worse result.

    Weapon arcs.
    Weapon arcs are the define the area where the model can shoot.
    We assume infantry weapon arcs are 360 degrees.(Can shoot all round.)
    However as Cavalry ,Vehicles. and Monsters are more bulky, they MAY have more restricted weapon arcs.

    E.g. a hull mounted weapon may be fixed forward and limited to 45 deg total arc.(27.5 deg either side of weapons axis.)
    Or side mounted weapons may have 90deg total arc.(front axis to left/right as appropriate.)
    (Similar to diagrams on Pg 59 40k BB

    Resolving attack damage.
    Weapons in S.T.A.C.S. have their in game abilities represented by following characteristics.

    Name/ER/AP/E / Special.

    ER is the effective range of the weapon , only models within this range can be effected.

    AP is the armour piercing ability of the weapon.

    E ,is Effectiveness of the weapon determines how many models the weapon can effect in the same target unit. Expressed as a number of models OR Blast daimeter size in inchesOR template type.

    Special. (Bonus to armour penetrationOR supression OR ignore cover , etc).

    Note, some weapons have different attack modes or ammunition types. These are listed as separate entries, with the same name . It does not mean the units has multiple separate weapons with the same name that fire differently!The player chooses which weapon effect they want to use that turn.

    Resolve weapon hits against Vehicles and Monster Units.
    Add the AV bonus dice,(if applicable) to the AP value of the attacking weapon.
    Subtract the targets vehicle /monsters AR value from this total.
    This is the value the target unit has to roll over to avoid taking damage from the weapon hit.(The saving roll).

    If the target unit rolls over this value the target unit takes no damage at all.(Passes the saving roll.)

    If the target unit rolls 1 under the save value , the target unit takes minor damage,(-2 on damage table roll)

    If the target unit rolls 2 to 3 under the save value , the target unit takes normal damage .

    If the target unit rolls 4 or more ,under the the save value , the target unit takes major damage(+2 on damage rolls

    Result/ Effect.
    1 or less Suppressed
    3Armament damage .(Lose armament DP and lose weapon function accordingly.)
    4Mobility damage.(Lose mobility DP and reduce movement rate accordingly.)
    6 or more, Annihilated.(destroyed all friendly units within 6” suppressed)
    *Vehicles and monster may have different AR value dependant on facing.(Where the weapon hit comes from in relation to the target model.).If applicable these are listed as front /side/rear AR values.

    Infantry and cavalry units are comprised of multiple models that are individually more fragile than vehicles and monsters. Therefore the effectiveness of these types of units are represented by removing individual models from a unit,(and from play,)when they fail to save themselves from a weapon hit.

    Resolving weapon hits against infantry and cavalry units.
    Determine which models are effected by the weapon hits.
    Models in the 'attack zone' of the attacking weapon deduct their AR value from the AP value of the attacking weapon.
    This is the number the targeted model has to beat to save themselves from the weapon hit.
    If model roll lower than this number they loose a DP, when a models DP are reduced to zero,it is removed from the unit ,(and from play ).
    ( As the most infantry and cavalry models only have one DP, they are removed when they fail their saving throw.)

    Allocating Damage.
    After the number of damage points lost has been determined.(The number of failed saves from one unit attack.)These are allocated to the models closest to , and in clear LOS of the attacking unit, and these models are removed first, working back away from the attacker as their DP allocation is met.(Models in cover are removed last.)

    Ducking Back.
    After the attaker has declared the intended target, the defender MAY decide to swap the position of 'notable models',(leaders heros, support or full support weapon carrying models,)
    with ordinary models further back in the unit.
    This represents , these more experianced members of the unit ducking back out of harms way, or other unit members retrieving the specialised weapons of the unit.
    Assault weapons and sniper weapons prevent the defender swaping the attacked models, with other models in the unit.(EG if a model is attacked with an assault weapon or sniper weapon they may not swop positions with another model.)

    Weapon classifiactions and characteristics.
    How a weapon is used by a unit, is determined by the units weapon characteristics.
    They are listed as ;-

    Assault ,( the weapons a unit uses in close combat.)
    Small Arms.(The main ranged weapons used by an infantry type unit.)
    Support,(The specialised weapon(s) a unit uses to deal with specific target types.)
    Fire support,(Support weapon(s) that can only be used if the unit is on fire support order.)

    Resolve a units attack in the following order,Assault, Small Arms/Support/Full Support.

    Resolving moral damage of infantry and cavalry units.
    After resolving weapon hits as above to determine physical damage, (and removing any models that have DP reduced to 0.)

    Take the basic number of weapon hits caused by the attacking unit on the target unit. Add the AI dice bonus for the support, full support weapon fired by the attacking unit at the target unit.

    This is the suppressive effect of the attacking unit.

    The target units suppression value is its current DP added to its lowest AR value.

    If the total suppression effect of the ranged attacks is over the suppression value of the target unit, the target unit is suppressed

    If the total suppression effect is over double the suppression value of the target unit , the target unit is neutralised.

    E.g. a squad of infantry fires 8 assault rifles (ER 24”/AP6/E 1/-)
    And a heavy machine-gun, (ER 36”/AP7/E 3/AI D6)

    The target is heavy infantry unit(AR 5) 8 models with 1DP(wound)each.

    The target unit has to make 8 x 3+ saves(6-4=2 therefore 3+ save. For the small arms fire.)
    And fails one save.
    Then 3x 4+ saves,(7-4=3 therefore 4+ save for the HMG fire.)
    And fails 2 saves.
    The target unit looses 3DP (failed 3 saves)therefore looses 3 models .

    The target units suppression value is now reduced to 5(AR) +5(DP) = 10.(Originally 5AR+8DP=12)

    Then the attacker determines suppressive effect of the attack.

    8 assault rifles firing = 8(One each)
    1 HMG firing =3+D6
    8+3+(D6 roll of )3=14.

    The suppression effect of the firing unit is over the suppression value of the target , the target unit becomes suppressed

    If the suppression effect of the firing unit is over double the suppression value of the target , the target unit becomes suppressed

    Morale Effects .
    A unit that has suffered moral damage, suppressed ,(S) or neutralised,(N) replace their order counter with the appropriate (S) or (N) counter.
    The unit will take the appropriate compulsory actions below until it returns to good moral after successful rally attempt(s) at during the end of game turn phase of the game turn. At which point it receives orders as normal.

    The unit may retire(move away from enemy units,) to cover , or move to intervening( within movement distance and nearer than all enemy) cover .
    In both cases the unit takes a single move action in the secondary action phase.

    A unit that is in cover when it becomes suppressed will not move, but may take an attack action, in the secondary action phase .

    A vehicle unit may turn to put its (highest) front AR facing to wards the attacking unit that suppressed it instead of moving to cover. If all enemy units are within the vehicles units front AR facing, the vehicles unit may count as in cover.(Take an attack action in the secondary action phase.)

    Neutralised (stunned).The unit will not take any actions until rallied. Unless it is attacked with close combat weapons , at which point it will fight back normally. When rallied a neutralised unit moves to suppressed.

    Routing units.
    When a vehicle type unit looses all of its weapons , it must make a Moral test at the start of every game turn.
    When an infantry type unit loses 75% or more of its starting DP, it must make a Moral test at the start of every game turn.
    If these moral tests are failed the unit routes from the battle field, place a (R) counter nest to the unit.
    A routing unit must attempt to exit the playing area, as quickly as possible by the shortest available route. (Takes a compulsory move action in both action phases.)

    Rallying units.
    During the end of game turn phase, a player may attempt to improve the moral of suppressed, neutralised and routing unit .
    To rally a unit, simply roll over the units moral grade using the following modifiers.
    Rallying Modifiers.
    Moral grade modifiers.
    Unit at less than 75% of starting DP.+1
    Unit at less than 50% of starting DP +1 .
    More enemy units within 12'' than friendly units +1
    For every friendly unit with moral damage /destroyed within 12 ''+1

    Rallying dice modifiers.
    Unit at 100% of starting DP.+1
    Unit in cover +1
    More friendly units within 24” than enemy units +1 .
    Command value of leader/hero +variable .

    Example Moral grades.
    Fanatical(fearless.) moral grade1.
    Elite , moral grade 2.
    Standard, moral grade 3.
    Conscripted, moral grade 4
    Mindless/cowardly , moral grade 5.

    Ramming and Running Down.
    Some times Vehicles and monster units , may want to take a Double Order to use their bulk to ram or run down enemy models.

    The attacking unit must move forward in a straight line when performing a ram or running down attack.

    Rams.(Vehicle units attacking vehicle units.)
    The attacking unit moves up to 2 x M value, to bring it to contact with the target model.
    The attacking unit adds HALF the distance it moved ( in inches ,)into contact, to its contacted AR value.
    This is the attacking models ram impact value.
    The ram impact value is resolved as an AP value attack on the target unit..

    The target model adds a D6 to its contacted AR value , this is the targets resistance value.
    This is resolved as an AP attack on the ramming vehicle..

    Running down.
    A vehicle or monster unit may want to try to crush infantry or cavalry models using its sheer bulk !
    The attacking model moves into contact with the intended target model(s).
    The attacker stops as soon as they make base(or/hull) to base contact with an enemy model.
    If the attacker rolls over the target model(s) stealth value (S) the target model is run down.
    The target model deducts its AR rating from the AR rating of the attacking model, to determine its saving throw.( Usual there is little chance of surviving being run over by a heavy tank!)
    The attacker can continue to move forward in a straight line until it moves into contact with another enemy model, or reaches its M value .

    If the attacking model fails to roll over a target models Stealth value (S), the target model dives out of the way,(Placed to the side of the attacking unit , not in contact.)And the attacking unit stops moving.
    This is to represent the attacker over steering and loosing impetus.

    Command and Control.
    The ability of a unit leader or hero, to influence the actions of friendly units on the battle field.
    This is defined with the units Command Value,(Cv).
    It is expressed as a number for leaders. Eg CV 1 means the leader can add one (+1) to ONE dice roll per game turn.

    A hero attached to a unit, or with a retinue in a HQ unit. Has more influence on the actions of the entire force.
    This is represented by fate points (F).Each fate point allows the hero to change ONE failed dice roll of ANY friendly unit,to an automatic success ONCE per game.

    The Command value (Cv) also determined the amount of units that can be added to the leaders unit to form a unit group.

    The experienced squad leader Cv of 3.
    Can have up to 2 other units join his unit to form a unit group.
    The unit group counts as a single unit for all in game interactions.
    And represents experienced leaders 'taking charge' in the heat of battle.

    Cv of 2 or more allow the leader/hero to add one (+1)to this number of dice rolls per turn

    Off table support.
    This is the term used to define units and effects of units , that are not represented by models on the table at the start of play .
    (They are requested in the command phase and arrive in the resolution phase.)

    These are defined as ;-
    Reserves, units that will enter play later in the game.

    Artillery strikes, weapon attacks launched beyond the boundaries of the gaming area.

    Air strikes, these are flying units that briefly enter play to make attacks on ground units.

    Reserves and Air strikes are called into play in the command phase.
    The players pick a point on the edge of the playing area , (in their half) this is called the entry point.

    The players place 4 (numbered) entry point markers every command phase , only one can be used to let a reserve or air strike unit arrive.(Secretly note which entry point the unit will use.)

    If the player makes a successful request roll , in the resolution phase the reserve/air strike unit is placed on the entry point, ready for orders in the next command phase.

    Artillery strikes .
    Artillery strikes are called into play in the command phase, in a similar way to reserves and air strikes.

    The player places 4 (numbered )target point counters anywhere in the gaming area, as long as a friendly unit has clear LOS to the target point.(Secretly note which target point the off table artillery will aim at.)

    If the player makes a successful request roll , in the resolution phase the artillery strike is centred on the target point. The artillery strike will scatter from this target point .(Roll 2 D6 and pick the highest result to determine the distance the artillery strike scatters. Determine the direction of scatter using a 'scatter dice' or a D12 for 'clock face' directions,etc.)

    Request roll.
    The request roll is the score needed on a D6 to get the off table support to arrive in this game turns resolution phase.
    It depends on the number of requests, (represented by game turns ,)and the control value of the requesting HQ.

    Game turn/dice score required.
    The requesting HQ unit can ad its Cv to the dice score .
