5150 Platoon Leader

Watermarked PDF


The Gaea Prime Empire is still hungry and still has many enemies, including a new one – the Zhuh-Zhuh. The Bug menace is at its worst and everyday there are reports of Hishen gains, closer and closer to the Home World. Darkness is coming and the body count is growing.

I like to think we’ve got them where we want them.

You’re a Platoon Leader in command of three Squads. You can lead Gaea Prime soldiers, Hishen clones, Grath creatures, Zhuh-Zhuh “monkey boys”; heck even bone crunching Bugs, it’s all up to you. 

Although we’ve increased the size of your games, we’ve kept the detail from 5150: Star Army while streamlining the mechanics. Now you can play with more figures in less time.

We’ve expanded the Campaign Rules, not made them harder. We’ve built upon those found in 5150: Star Army to now include the option to fight from planet to planet. In short, more fun, less work.

Inside you'll find:

  • ·  Rules to easily handle a full platoon for infantry and their support weapons.
  • ·  A pre-generated campaign linking your Missions, yet still allowing you to play one-off battles when desired.
  • ·  A planetary conquest campaign.
  • ·  A system that rewards your successes and punishes your failures.
  • ·  New Aliens to fight, plus the old Hishen and Bug standbys.
  • ·  A color sheet of printable top-down counters for Hishen, Grath, Symons, and Star Army troops. Two full Platoons!

    Like all THW games Platoon Leader can be played solo or same-side, against the game mechanics or head-to-head against your friends.

    You don't even feel the bumps anymore, too many drops for that. Damn, the soldiers are getting younger and younger or maybe you're just getting older? 
    The green light flashes and you run your final check. All's good and you brace for touchdown. Bam! The door drops and your squad piles out immediately coming under fire. The last thing you remember is...

Platoon Leader

It's not a job, it's an adventure!

    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.
