This my version of the condensed rule set for Lock n Load Tactical System Core Rules version 4.1.
You will need to know some of the basics of the rule set to used this condensed set of rules. Not all the rules are in this set.
These rules utilize the most common procedures to play the series of Lock 'n Load Tactical System games.
This rule set is designed to speed up game play and learn the rules. The core set rule book is 55 pages long. I have arranged this shortened rule set in outline form in an order of unit description, move, combat, and other rules. This rule set has a table of contents with page numbers. This allows for quick lookup of the procedures on how to do things.
This download is only 11.5 pages long with one page the table of contents.
My goal was to learn and play...
This package contains all the maps from Lock 'n Load Band of Heroes without the white halo around the hexes. Only the first edition game had the maps this way. So if you dislike the white halo effect on the map hexes then these maps are for you.
There are a total of six maps included. Each map is has been broken into two parts to allow them to be printed off of a home printer.
This is a reformatting of Olivier Revenu (crabe tambour)'s intro scenario "Bloody Crossroad" (crossroad.pdf) into the Band of Heroes 2.0 look. Latest: Fixed a typo that had lived through from the first version, changed the presentation of St Mere Eglise so it matches the way the base game scenarios spell it (though I couldn't help myself and added a missing diacritical mark), and added a line of text about victory conditions (I presume it matches the intent).
A reminder sheet for some of those 1 line rules that can get forgotten or take a while to look up. Intended as a quick familiarisation for anyone returning to the game after a gap or to help new players with the learning curve. Updated file to include the clarifications raised by Vance
As a big fan of both ATS and Panzer, I thought it would be helpful to create individual ordnance cards for the vehicles, guns and SWs for LnL BoH (and expansions).
Although there are several awesome reference sheets included here on BGG, I prefer to limit the number of full sheets of paper that need to be referenced.
These cards were designed to be printed on Avery Ink Jet Business Card (#8376) stock.
