No End in Sight. Cold war and modern platoon combat

Watermarked PDF

The M113 is burning behind you, the Reds are coming on strong. the platoon is in bad shape and mortar support is nowhere to be seen.

As platoon commander, you have to rely on your squad leaders to push your troops forward, lay down suppressing fire and win the fire fight.

No End in Sight is a comprehensive guide to contemporary, cold war and near future combat. Lead an infantry platoon through random battles, several campaign styles or scenarios of your own design. Track the progress of your squad leaders as you play.

The rules feature an innovative activation and reaction fire mechanic that leaves you making important and tough choices constantly. Know when to push and when to hold off. Your men have to last for a long fire fight and you may run out of steam when you least expect it.

Combat is written to produce a fairly realistic level of casualties. Most fire will serve to pin and suppress the enemy with modest casualty rates until you close to assault.

Command battle hardened professionals and insurgent militia, dismantle IED's, call in artillery fire, evac the wounded and take on enemy tanks. It's all covered.

The rules are written to be both playable and enjoyable on a small gaming space, using approximately a platoon plus appropriate supports, APC's and assorted vehicles on each side.

Run your own invented campaign or use the included systems to:

*Conduct "Hearts and Minds" peacekeeping in a foreign land (or throw the invaders out)

*Fight to prevent the "Domino Theory" from coming true.

*Engage the NATO/Warsaw Pact while hoping the conflict does not escalate out of control.

* * * * *

The rules have been updated to a brand new second edition. 

This updates and clarifies many rules, including a better assault sequence and expanded options for troop characteristics.

More tools have been included to help set up your own forces.

* * * * *

No End in Sight is compatible with any individually based figures. 

Game measurements were written with 15mm figures in mind, but can be used for larger and smaller figures.

A typical game features about a platoon on each side, with supporting elements and vehicles.

Cheers and sorry about the delay.
It generally does not. The rules pack was a lot of alternative rules that werent a good fit for the overall system, but which might work well for a specific scenario or gaming griup

Do irregular troops track their wounded in addition to the Irregular Troop Casualty Check, or does that check replace the normal hit/casualty resolution? (page 22)

The break check list calls for +1 per 'casualty'. Does that mean wounded and pinned results, or just wounded? (Page 21)

Cheers Thomas and thanks for buying the game.
Pinned figures are NOT casualties.

Hope that helps :)

Do lines one and three stack on the Break Check list? I'm other words, does a new casualty count +1 or +2?

Yes, they do stack.

Original electronic
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.
