Fireteam:Modern - Modern Miniature Wargame Rules

Watermarked PDF

Fireteam Modern is a set of small unit skirmish wargame rules for modern combined arms land combat using 15-28mm scale miniatures. The rules can be used to fight battles from any post WW2 conflict dating from the 1950s to the modern day or the near future.

These rules have been designed to work with opposing forces of approximately platoon size with additional reinforcements such as small numbers of armoured vehicles and light artillery support.

This is a new and updated version of the rules 

The biggest change to the rules in this new edition is the removal of activation dice, to be replaced with activation pips. These “pips” allow far more flexibility in giving teams actions and also increases the importance of officers as leaders as they can now use their pips to command other units.

The Morale rules have also been tweaked and clarified, especially with regards to Morale checks and falling back.

Close quarters combat has also been simplified and has been made marginally less deadly with there now being greater chance of an enemy withdrawing rather than fighting hopelessly to the last man.

Based on the reviews it sounds like this rule set had supplements that are now missing and is missing key statistic components making it incomplete? Is a work in progress?

Hi Rory,

Just bought the rules, they look really good. Had a quick read though and had some a couple of queries.

- On Equipment - there are points values listed for a load of equipment but I can't see any rules. E.g. ECM, Surveillance Equipment, ERA, Composite Armour, laser gun sight etc.

- On armour - There are points listed for upgrades side armour but I can't see how to work out what the side and rear armour values?

- Canister shot doesn't seem to need to reload, but other ammo types do - is this correct?

May thanks

I have a question about vehicle armor. The rules say vehicles have different armor values, depending on facing (front, side, rear). The vehicle listings only designate one value (for example, a heavy tank is rated 11). How do you calculate the different facings?

Hi, is there any chance of these rules and armoured strike being available to purchase as a printed copy like Naval Command at Lulu ?

Hi Rory,

I have purchased ''FIRETEAM MODERN'' and I want to ask how you calculate points. Cause in the scenario section you are talking about points (ex. 1D6=6 etc). And when will you release the army lists for Fireteam: Vietnam, Fireteam: Third World War, Fireteam: Iraq and Fireteam: Afghanistan?

I am an old hex and counter wargamer so prefer to play on hex-based maps.
Can this be converted to hexes for play and if so what scale would you recommend the hexes - 2m/5m/10m?

Hi. I don't see any reason why you couldn't convert it to hexes. I would suggest each fireteam (4 or 5 men) would occupy one hex (casualties being kept track of with markers or dice).

Great - what should the scale of each hex be approximately - 2m/5m/10m?

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.
