Hail of Fire is currently in Beta status. Please feel free to provide any feedback you may have as I continue to add to and refine the set.

"Hail Of Fire" is a company-level, WWII themed miniatures war game designed to be both simple and easy to learn while keeping both players engaged in the action! And best of all, the rules are only few pages long! So print out the PDF, throw some models on the table, and jump right into the exciting tabletop combat!

Using a fast, interactive turn sequence, players are always in the fight. The addition of hidden action points, fast and easy deployment, and a delayed combat resolution system ensures that both commanders will be fighting the friction and fog of war as much as they are each other!

For folks interested to see how the mechanisms work together in context, here is an AAR that walks through a game and describes in decent details the systems in motion:

Just an FYI that few mechanisms have evolved since this walkthrough was published, but it still gives an accurate portrayal of the feel of the game and how systems interact.

Hello. I just downloaded Hail of Fire and overall I'm very happy. I like that it packs a lot in a small package. One question about anti-armor fire: They way I read it, if an AT 1 hits an Armor 2 it would roll two ping dice. But an AT 1 would roll three ping dice against Armor 3. This seems like it's more effective against better armor which seems odd. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your support and for reaching out! When shooting at armor, you always roll a number of dice equal to the weapon's AT value. The type of dice depend of target. So an AT 1 weapon will always roll 1 die. If shooting at AV 0, it would be a pen die, if AV 1 or higher then the die would be a ping die. Let me know if that makes sense.

I think I got it. Let me use a couple examples just to be sure: A Sherman (AT 3) fires at a Panzer IV (AR 1). It would roll two pen dice. Example 2: A M3 Stuart (AT 2) fires at a Panther (AR 3). It would roll 2 ping dice (or 1 due to the difference in AT/AR?)

To clarify, the Sherman (AT3) rolls 3 dice. So against the PzIV (AV1) it would roll 1 Ping die and 2 Pen dice. You'll always roll a number of dice equal to the AT value of the weapon. Ping for each die up to the AV of the target, and Pen for each die over the AV. The Stuart will roll 2 dice (AT2) but they will both be Ping dice, as the Panther has a higher AV than the weapon's AT rating. Does that make sense?

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.
