1944: Combat Shock / Second Edition

Watermarked PDF

1944: Combat Shock, originally released in 2013, marked the first historical miniatures wargame to be produced by CPOP. In 2021, eight years later, the second edition of the game finally arrives from creator, Neuicon. Combat Shock has always remained an important piece of the CPOP catalog, and was originaly set to release in 2020, but world events would prevent that from happening, as other projects and a halt within the brand kept the title from seeing the light. Now, in 2021, the game returns, updated and expanded, bringing the same easy-to-learn gameplay and fast and brutal skirmishes, back to the tabletop.

Combat Shock is a set of World War II tabletop miniatures rules, for use with 15 to 28mm miniatures, based individually, or several of them mounted on a single base. Combat Shock is played on battlefields between 2x2 to 4x4 feet and encourage quick gameplay, allowing for combat to be seen within the very first turn. Gameplay remains as simple to learn and understand as the original edition, still providing tactical play amongst players.

Included in this digital download, are the files: the core rulebook in both full and printer friendly versions, as well as a set of basic counters and templates used in the game. The core rules include basic and advanced rules, battle conditions, upgradeable options, scenarios, selections for the United States, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Great Britain and blank team cards (print these to write in and track your teams).

We welcome you to return to the battlefields of 1944. We welcome you, to Combat Shock.

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.
