Halt the Hun!

Late World War One Western Front Skirmish Rules

Halt the Hun! is a relatively quick, simple skirmish game for 28mm figures set on the Western Front in late World War One (1918). Players use 10-sided dice to determine the results of actions including attacks & panic checks. Each side - which can consist of one or more players - controls units of either Allied or Imperial German troops. You can build your own “army” using a simple system or use one of the premade battlegroups provided.

There are three PDFs provided with the game. The first is the rules set (25 pages plus a quick reference sheet). The second contains army lists, unit cards, tokens, and templates (54 pages). The third is a sample skirmish game described in detail with lots of examples of the rules in action (13 pages).

The Halt the Hun! rules include a unique initiative system, simple combat resolution, rules for morale, smoke and gas, and special rules for officers, NCOs, chaplains, nurses, and tanks. The rules are packed with photos of figures from this period as well as contemporary recruiting posters. There are more than 100 unit cards included to create a wide variety of British, French, German, Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, Scottish, and American battlegroups; there are also sample battlegroups provided in three sizes for the British/Scottish, French, Germans, and Americans. Guidelines are provided for small, medium, and large skirmishes; there are scenario ideas as well as a 1-page quick reference sheet. Optional Event Cards are also included if you’d like to add some interesting twists to your game (including strafing runs and calling in artillery).

Heed the call, assemble your troops, and head to the front! Halt the Hun! is a perfect excuse to get some of the wonderful figures available for this period onto your tabletop!

(Brigade Games, Great War Miniatures, Warlord Games, and Nick Eyre of North Star Military Figures all kindly gave permission for professionally painted miniatures from their figure lines to be included).

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.
