Rulebook v2.0

General Information:

The Rule Book v2.0 is in pre-production status. This means, that we expect only minor things (e.g. formatting things, spelling,…) could change to the final v2.0. We would like to emphasise that the v2.0 version is then also playable for the East Front series with Red Horizon 41.

We have tried to incorporate all the changes so that the structure of v1.0 is maintained and previous Red Horizon 41 players can find their way around again.

At this point, we would like to say thank you once again to all the supporters and players of our system. Your feedback is very welcome and valuable.

We think that the Assault System is becoming a lot more grown up with the rules version v2.0. The game experience of tactical battles will be even more intense and exciting than before.

As we want to keep throwing the stone, we have already prepared the next project for the Eastern Front series, Sevastopol. But more about that when the time comes…
