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.

Game includes:

  • 5 sheets of unit, weapon, vehicle, and condition counters.
  • 2, large 30" x 41" mounted game maps, hexes are 1".
  • luck cards, such as Shell Shocked, Evasive Maneuvers, Field Repair, and Tank Hunters.
  • 5 sheets of unit data cards.
  • 24 scenarios.
  • page color rule book.
  • player aid card.

(This game contains large files.)

I could only give this product 4 stars because of the issues noted. I purchased OST pnp version expecting a polished product for the $25.00 cost, considering that it would cost another $30.00-$40.00, to have everything (especially the maps) printed. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
