Weltkrieg Main Rulebook

Selected Option:

Weltkrieg allows you to re-create well-known (and not so well-known)  battles from the wars of the 20th Century on your tabletop, and change the course of history! Scaled for Grand Tactical representation (one miniatures base = 1 company of troops), this first book of the Weltkrieg series includes:

  • The game series rules, divided into Basic, Advanced, and Optional sections for ease of learning;
  • Rules that cover basic combat mechanics, command attributes and troop quality, the use of specialized troops (artillery, scouts, aircraft and anti-air, etc.), night actions, airborne operations, engineering functions, and more;
  • Roughly 180 Data Cards containing the game stats for German and Soviet forces on the Eastern Front, 1941-45, plus a dozen pages of unit organizations for both armies, and a special insert containing the game-equivalent TO&E of Panzergrenadier Division Grossdeutschland at the beginning of the 1942 Fall Blau offensive;
  • Five battle scenarios covering actions throughout the war;
  • Seven 'generic' scenarios that can be used for pick-up games, or as the starting scenario for one of two different types of campaign games;
  • Comprehensive game charts, play aids and markers.

Weltkrieg uses a semi-alternating turn sequence that keeps players involved in the game instead of waiting around for their opponent to finish their turn before being permitted to take any actions, and incorporates the use of specific unit orders and Command Points that may be expended to perform certain game functions; formations having better command and control will be able to accomplish more during an average game turn than those with lesser force coordination.

Written primarily for 6mm and smaller figure scales, Weltkrieg can accomodate figure scales up to 15mm with minimal rules modifications.

Same question as Chris had 2 years ago. No NW Europe Front, Desert or 1940 coverage?

I've enjoyed playing the East Front with these rules, but am waiting for additional material to broaden their appeal.

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.
