Strike Legion: Platoon Leader

Selected Option:

Strike Legion: Platoon Leader is a 15mm-based small unit combat game, where individual soldiers can make the difference between victory and defeat. The game features:

  • Alternating squad-based activations, with each team of a squad capable of carrying out independent actions;
  • Team actions that allow great latitude in tabletop operations, including a sensible Overwatch system and multiple team actions per turn based on morale status;
  • Leaders and leadership actions that affect teams, squads, and (possibly) the actions of your entire force;
  • Special rules for crew, medic, scout, and sniper teams;
  • Crewed weapons and squad support weapons;
  • A section dedicated to special characters (Personalities);
  • Complete vehicle combat rules, including provisions for gunships and infantry teams mounted on personal vehicles;
  • Several dozen infantry team attributes, weapons characteristics, and vehicle systems that can be incorporated into the player's own unit designs using the enclosed unit construction rules;
  • Seven scenarios and over two dozen pre-made units;
  • Simple conversion scales to use figures ranging from 6mm to 28mm, based individually or with figures mounted on team bases.

While its focus is on futuristic combat, Strike Legion: Platoon Leader can easily be used to fight platoon- and company-level actions from World War II through modern settings with minimal modifications to the rules.

Strike Legion: Platoon Leader is a complete game; ownership of other Strike Legion titles is not necessary to play this game.

I really like this set of rules so far. Very detailed with a good amount of crunch. The team activations and overwatch actions are going to be fun to play out.

I'm taking my time reading through the book and the strange worlds expansion before diving into unit creation.

Looking forward to playing this one using single based 15mm figs.

Considering the headings in the sample pdf are screwed up and have typos, I'm not going to chance it. (It looks like they forgot to embed the heading font - but that doesn't explain the typos.)

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.
