NUTS! Compendium

Watermarked PDF

Any Fight… Anywhere…Any Time.

Baked rock and sand, shimming silver with heat waves as far as the eye could see. At 140 degrees, the Sahara was deadly enough without the prospect of enemies lurking in the next Wadi…heat…rugged terrain…sudden combat…the desert alone was a killer. Even the ants have enough sense to get out of this. Too bad you’re not an ant. You’re a soldier, and you have a mission.


WW2 encompassed almost every kind of terrain and situation you could possibly encounter – from blazing hot deserts to snowy mountaintops, and from grinding combat to personal encounters that could make or break you and your unit. With NUTS! Compendium you can now fight them; any fight…anywhere.

The NUTS! Compendium is a tool box of optional rules for NUTS!   You can use these tools to enhance and customize your games and campaigns. The rules in this book follow the same organizational style as the NUTS! Final Version rulebook and includes:

  • Updated Character and figure rules, including new NUTS Attributes and morale levels like Plucky and Fanatic.
  • Privation, fatigue and Out of Supply rules for when your games get tough.
  • Cavalry combat.
  • Boat combat and amphibious landings.
  • Night fighting.
  • Rules for Airborne assaults, Ski troops, K-9 teams and Engineers.
  • Enhanced artillery and air strike rules.
  • Additional Chocolate & Cigarette lite RPG rules and attributes such as Wheeling & Dealing and Shell Shock.
  • Optional vehicle rules, including multi-turreted tanks, top armor attacks, bogging and getting tracked.
  • New terrain, weather and environment rules including Desert, Jungle, Alpine and Urban.
  • Additional mission and campaign rules.

Now you can create and play campaigns and scenarios in any theatre of WW2 with just two books – NUTS! and the NUTS Compendium.


I know a guy, he said. Sure, you thought ruefully as you cautiously entered the cluttered kingdom of a supply depot deal maker.  You need some maps, recon photos, anything to help your guys out on the next Mission since G-2 has been worthless – you got fed into meat grinder last time. Not this time. Maybe you can trade the badges and dagger you got off an enemy officer for some useful intel.

Hi, there is any new faction in this compendium, or still only 4 of the basic rules? I am looking for Italians, they are quite jolly and may be used either as axis force or co-belligerent Batallion after the Italian armistice.

So I have I think 3rd edition. Do I need to pay for a new edition of the rules to get the most updated set. I see 4th edition is out, or is my PDF updated with the rules changes? I would think new edition new purchase but I made that mistake once before. :) Thanks Tex!

I also use with the 3rd ED rules. You can uses all the rules in the Compendium no problem with the 3rd ED rules. The Compendium also gives some suggested updates to the 3rd ED rules.

Scanned image
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.
