Description Edit | History

"Eastern Front" is a reprint of the original "Panzer Grenadier" game by Avalanche Press. However, it's much more than just a reprint, with the game expanded noticeably and a new revision of the rules, taking lessons learned throughout the series. Art has also seen a major update, along with a number of other improvements:

  • The new maps will use the style Terry Moore Strickland showed so well with Beyond Normandy.
  • There’s twice as much playing area from which to choose, as there has been a move from four to eight maps
  • In addition to infantry, the Germans also now have two full squadrons of cavalry.
  • A new concept is added for the first time to the series, the vehicles known as prime movers. These are tracked or semi-tracked vehicles like the Soviet Komsomolets or the German SdKfz-7. They have better performance off the road than the game’s standard trucks, but cannot carry infantry.
  • The Soviets received a much greater overhaul than the Germans. New artillery pieces include the 107 mm cannon and 76.2 mm mountain gun. A new “mixed” type of infantry is available, anti-tank rifle platoons. There are two new flavors of armored car: the FAI and Ba6 in addition to the Ba10m found in the first edition. The stable of tanks is vast.
  • The Romanian army is now represented
  • All 50 scenarios from the original Panzer Grenadier have been included, as well as 62 new scenarios, for a total of 112.

This game is part of the Panzer Grenadier series

2 play aid counters
PG is a good game but lacking in play aids. I really like the Scenario Information Tracker and Assault hexes files preiously posted in PG Eastern Front files. However, they too need some supplemental counters. I created counters for both printable on 4x6 shipping labels. I also created counters for OBA. Let me know what you think.

4 PG Assault Hexes
Print these and use to reduce stacking in ASSAULT hexes. The sheet accommodates 4 hexes and contains separate spaces for each unit involved (combat units, transports, leaders). Use extra minefield markers (or any other markers numbered 1-4) on the map to mark the actual ASSAULT hexes.

10 Eric's Unambiguous PG Maps 1-10
Tired of guessing where a contour is while moving to avoid certain death from Opp Fire? Tired of guessing if a quarter of a hex is filled with the step-saving Woods terrain? Then take a look at my unambiguous PG maps. They ain't too pretty, but real easy to play on.

4 PG Tactics Challenge
Have you been thinking about PG but don't have the time to play a full scenario. Mulling over a certain situation in a scenario and trying to figure out the best way to play it. Recently, I have found myself doing this and thought that this might be something interesting to others. So that was the genesis for the PG Tactics Challenge. This is a very specific situation in PG that you can mull over in your mind or even setup and work through the situation. You will see in the first challenge it is a very simple assault (or is it?). I have given you all the parameters of the situation, including the dice rolls. You need to figure out the best way to achieve it. If you want, send back a list of your activations as a mini AAR and I will look to post the most innovative ones to the...
