The most playable, versatile rules set for company-level WW2 combat available anywhere.

Playable with 6mm miniatures, counters, or as a hybrid. Each player controls one or more infantry platoons on the western front in 1944-45, plus a custom force of armor, artillery, and ground attack aircraft. The core rules take only minutes to learn, and the expert rules are entirely modular, allowing you to use only the rules you enjoy in your game. The author provides a concierge-level of support, providing free PDFs of any unit counter labels you desire.

Features include:

Hex-based movement and ranging/sighting — no referee needed. Printable terrain hexes are included, based on photographs of lovingly crafted miniature 3D terrain.

Dozens of US, German, and British units are included, allowing you to recreate nearly any scenario from June 1944-May 1945.

The rules model command, initiative, and experience level of units; radio and field line communications; squads that split into rifle and LMG teams; support weapons like panzerfausts, sniper rifles, and mortars; parachute drops; glider landings; elite units like commandos and rangers; medics and aid stations; tank infantry coordination; spotter planes, and much more.

The game has an active online presence, with lots of players and an author committed to developing and expanding the game.

I have received my copy of the rules however I have read that there is supposed to be some printable material included with the game to print out markers, units and hex tiles.
Nothing was included with my set of rules and I cannot find anywhere to print these out.
Is there a link available ?

Hi Mike, when you buy the printed version you also get a link to download a PDF document with all the markers and hexes and so forth. Log in to wargamevault and go to "My Library" and you should see it. It's called "StarsandCrossesPrintables"

This is a hex-based game. Converting it to rulers would be difficult.

Very nice.
Any chance for other theaters of WWII (East-front, Pacific, Africa, Balkans...) or modern variation?

Hi Gerasimos,

An Afrika Korps expansion is on the way! So glad you like the game.

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.
