Strike Legion Tactical Rules Compendium

Selected Option:

More than just a simple compilation of the four books in the Strike Legion Tactical series (the award-winning Strike Legion Main Rulebook, Module 1: The Genome Gambit, Module 2: The Clockwork Armies and Skunk Works), the Strike Legion Tactical Rules Compendium contains one of the most complete game systems available on the market today for playing ‘hard’ Science Fiction or Science Fantasy miniatures battles using small-scale miniatures (2mm to 15mm).

While the easy-to-learn core game rules and procedures (including Strike Legion’s unique, integrated Electronic Warfare system) have not changed from their original versions, many of the procedures around those core rules have been simplified or standardized, and many other sections have been edited or re-written for better clarity and ease of implementation.

Every section of each rulebook has been collated and consolidated into a unified whole, with all related rules being found in their respective sections. Some of the rules, vehicle systems and infantry attributes have been removed or consolidated to single entries to avoid redundancies, and a few new rules and options have been added for those wishing to implement them.

Each section that has been significantly altered has been marked so that veteran players will quickly be able to grasp the differences and improvements in how the game is played. While the Strike Legion Tactical Rules Compendium is not written in a progressive learning format, the download files include a 16-page Beginner's Guide that teaches new players the basics of armor, infantry and artillery combat in using a programmed instruction approach to allow new players to jump into the action in as little as 30 minutes.

Some of the highlights included in the books:

  • A 16-page Beginner's Guide with four scenarios that teach the basics of armor, infantry and artillery combat
  • 6 general scenarios playable with any forces, with some scenarios offering significant suggested variants to change the nature and scope of the action
  • 100 pre-designed unit Data Cards representing the four human and two non-human factions involved in humanity’s First Secession War, along with organizational charts for each faction.
  • A revised Unit Construction section that allows players to create their own forces ranging from savages with bows and spears to genetically modified (or grown) troops and bio-mechanical vehicles, from historically-based armies representing any period (including the modern or alternate Victorian eras) in recorded history to the wildest (or strangest) visions of combat in the far future taken from the players’ favorite SciFi novels, TV shows, or films
  • New options for Overwatch order resolution, Air Strikes, and Stomp attacks by Walkers and Large Organic elements
  • Rules for solitaire play
  • Revised graphics for all Data Cards and informational markers, including edit-enabled blank Data Card PDF forms for players wishing to field their own unit creations.
  • Revised game reference charts that include all of the ‘basic’ To Hit, Hit Location, Terrain, Damage, Infantry Combat, and Crew Quality Test procedures and modifiers

The scope and scale of combat in Strike Legion Tactical have not changed: a player’s forces are grouped into platoons of 2 to 4 individual squad, guns, or vehicles and each player can easily handle a reinforced battalion on the tabletop.

Does the Tactical Rules Compendium include the Strike Legion Tactical Beginner's Guide already?

Per your description of this Compendium, "While the Strike Legion Tactical Rules Compendium is not written in a progressive learning format, the download files include a 16-page Beginner's Guide that teaches new players the basics of armor, infantry and artillery combat in using a programmed instruction approach to allow new players to jump into the action in as little as 30 minutes."

There is a 19-page Strike Legion Tactical Beginner's Guide that is an additional $2 in the bundle offer.

Are you discussing the same thing? If it's part of the Compendium download, why is part of the "Strike Legion Tactical Complete [BUNDLE]" that already includes the Compendium?

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.
