Armored: Armored Combat Scenarios and Additional Rules for A Sergeant's War and other WWII Games


The platoon of Sherman tanks, down to three tracks thanks to landmines and breakdowns, emerged from the wood and accelerated across a clearing.  Immediately, the crack of a high-velocity gun cut through the air.  Sergeant Glen, peeking out of the turret hatch of Daisy Darling, reflexively ducked.  He scanned the far side of the field, looking for an AT gun emplacement or an enemy tank.  Another round cracked and Mobile Macy, about fifty yards to his right, lurched to a halt and leaked flame and smoke.

A third round cut overhead.  Over the intercom he heard the driver say a prayer and his gunner curse.  There was a killer out there, and they hadn’t even managed to spot it yet…

Armored contains scenarios and special rules for use with the WWII small unit game A Sergeant’s War (ASW).  The scenarios are perfectly compatible with other wargame rules, of course. 

The special rules included here are intended to spice up armor-only games and to add more detail to combined arms games of ASW.

To play all the scenarios in this booklet, you will need a 6’x4’ table (or 3’x’2 if using 6mm figures and half-inch game scale), terrain, and the following vehicles: 

US                                           Germany                                 Soviet Union

4x M4 Shermans (75mm)        4x Panthers (A or G)               4x T-34/76

4x M4 Shermans (76mm)        4x Pz IV-H (long 75mm)        3x T-70

2x M10 Wolverines                 4x StuG III-G (long 75mm)   4x Su-85

2x M5 Stuarts                         2x Marder III (long 75mm)   

The scenarios include variants that change the above vehicle quantities and types.

At the end of this booklet, A Sergeant’s War stats for these vehicles are provided at the end of these rules for convenience, as are simple, printable hidden unit counters.

New special rules include:

Vehicle Leaders

Infantry manning Vehicle MGs

Movement in Tight Spaces

Tank vs Man: Overruns

Tank vs Tank: Smoke Dischargers

Tank vs. Tank: Positions in Cover

Tanks and Pinning

Vehicle Special Rules

These various rules add historical detail to different types of vehicles.

Hidden Unit Counters

            Simple “limited intelligence” rules so that both sides can use hidden unit counters.

Scenarios:  This booklet includes six scenarios in two mini-campaigns.  Most of the scenarios

feature alternative forces, to increase replay value.

Campaign 1: Tanks and Panzers, somewhere near the Franco-German Border, 1944

Scenario 1:  Thrust

US tanks engage the forward elements of a German kampfgruppe.

Scenario 2:  Parry

A platoon of Panther tanks plays cat-and-Sherman with a group of 75mm-M4s.

Scenario 3: Lunge

Shermans and M-10s meet Panthers and Panzer IV’s in close terrain.


Campaign Two: Tables Turned, Eastern Front, Summer 1944

Scenario 1:  Road Cut

Mixed Soviet armor cuts a road against a weak German blocking force.

Scenario 2:  Panzerschlact

Panthers and StuGs counter-attack against defending T-34s and SU-85s.

Scenario 3:  Kill the Cat

T-34s hunt a lone Panther.

The booklet also includes hidden unit markers, which add to the 23 page length.

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.
