0 Introduction The following files are included for use with this article: Counters Map for Citadel scenario (7.0) Map for Beachhead scenario (10.0) This article provides new rules for using infantry in Ogre/GEV, along with scena rios focused on infantry. Some of these rules require Shockwave and/or Ogre Batt lefields to use. New counters are needed for some of the rules; you can print ou t the attacked file on cardstock or make your own. 2.0 Missile Reload Packs 2.01 Heavy infantry may replace their one-shot missiles by reloading from a pack of replacements. Reload packs cost 2 VP, have D2, and can only move when carrie d by another unit. A reload pack takes up one squad's worth of space when being transported by a vehicle. 2.02 A heavy infantry squad may reload by spending a turn in a hex with a reload pack without moving or firing. If the squad, pack, or both are on a vehicle it must also not move or fire during reloading. A single pack holds six reloads (i. e., can reload one squad six times, 3 squads twice each, etc). Each reload pack must have its use tracked and be discarded when its six reloads are used up. 2.03 A reload pack may be put on or taken off a vehicle at the beginning of any movement phase if an infantry unit is present in the same hex. 2.04 A three-point infantry unit may carry a reload pack but may not fire while carrying it. Picking up the pack requires the unit to spend a turn without movin g and firing in the same hex as the pack. A reload pack may be dropped at any ti me (i.e., if the infantry unit is overrun it may drop the pack and fight normall y, but would have to pick it up again on the next turn to move with it). A reloa d pack dropped in a water hex is not lost (it has neutral buoyancy airbags). Ene my reload packs may not be captured, only destroyed. 3.0 Anti-Ogre Mines 3.01 An infantry squad may carry an Anti-Ogre Mine (AOM), a nuclear shaped charg e device designed to be placed under the treads of an approaching Ogre in an att empt to disable it. An AOM costs 2 VP and is destroyed if the carrying squad is eliminated. An AOM may be transferred from one squad to another if they are stac ked together at the beginning of the movement phase. The carrying squad should b e identified secretly so the opponent can't tell who's carrying it until it's us ed. 3.02 When it's overrun by an Ogre, a squad may use an AOM instead of its regular attack. Roll one die to find the result: 1-3
0 Laying Smoke 4. bunkers. 5.0 Entrenchments 5. 4. This is a combination of trenches. A smoke counter remains on the board until the sta rt of the second friendly fire phase after it was laid. foxholes. In place of its regular attack the squad may place a smoke counter in its own h ex. Entrenchments in other terr ain have no effect. Unsticking the Ogre in combat r equires an engineer squad or equivalent unit.01 Engineer squads may create improvised cover for infantry in clear terrain. This counts as "firing" for other actions.02 An engineer squad may create an entrenchment by remaining in a hex without moving or firing for three turns. prevent ing it from moving until field repairs are made.03 An entrenchment in clear terrain doubles the defense strength of infantry i n the hex. More squads can speed this up. 5. 5.0 Ogre Critical Hits .011 In miniatures games. place black cotton or a felt disk in a 1" radius arou nd the engineer figure. 6. and other shelters.01 Engineer squads may generate smoke clouds to provide cover from laser fire.03 The "stuck" result indicates critical subsystem damage to the Ogre. and a lot of dirt is needed to shelter from nuclear explosions.04 Entrenchments may be included in the initial set-up at a cost of 2 VP each in hexes where infantry units may be set up at the beginning of the game. On a "6" the Ogre can move again at the speed allowed by its remaining tread units.02 A laser may not fire into or through a hex containing smoke (exception-crui se missiles may be fired on). firing. Roll one die each turn a squad is in the Ogre's hex without moving. Note t hat these are deeper than 20th-century entrenchments. or being fired upon. 5. Laser fire is blocked by the actual shape of the smoke. 4.no effect 4 2d tread units destroyed 5 4d tread units destroyed 6 4d tread units destroyed and Ogre is stuck 3. Marine engineers may only do this when on the surface of the water. 4. a battlesuit can jump out of an six-meter-deep hole to take a shot. requiring a tot al of three engineer-turns. It has no effect on vehicles or movement.
A determined enemy can still mass fire power to try to penetrate that armor. 6.01 An Ogre has meters-thick BPC armor protecting its vitals.02 The defense strength against a critical hit depends on the size of the Ogre : Ogre Model Defense Mk I 5 Mk II 11 Mk III 17 Ninja 20 Mk IV 22 Fencer 25 Mk V 27 Doppelsoldner . leaving only the weapons and treads vulnerable to attacks.6. aiming for weak points such as the linkage between the front and rear sections or the fusion plant cooling vents.
0 Citadel . I f an "X" result is achieved.03. since the core systems are so clo se together that a dozen centimeters can change which components are affected. 6.32 Mk VI 33 6.03 The effect of a critical hit is variable.05 Field repairs may be attempted on the Ogre as in 3. Scenarios 7.04 An "XX" result on a critical hit attack destroys the Ogre (but leaves a hul k). If the engineers are working on a "can't fire" damage result the Ogre must not move while the engine ers are working. roll one die: 1 no effect 2 can't fire for 1d turns 3 can't move for 1d turns 4 can't fire until repaired 5 can't move until repaired 6 destroyed 6.
02 Special Rules. 7. 8 armor units. 7. Defender has 45 infantry squads and a HWZ. Enter from south. Whoever has units left in the city at the end of the game is the winner.01 Basic Setup. S-3: city is road 0104 to 2304 and hexes to north. Attacking units may escape off the E. Attacker has 35 armor units. The GEV map is used. Enter from East. If the winner has m ore than 1/3 of his original force left (in VPs) it's a decisive victory.Sun Tzu wrote "Take what the enemy holds dear and await attack. 7. 8. 7. and 6 infantry squads. S. capturing a small city with an autofac critical to Paneuropean logistics on that front. 7. Cruise missile detonations would dest roy the autofac. representing the city. The attacker may not take any armor units with M1 or M2-this is a rapid reaction force and anything slow had to be left behind.06 Advanced Scenario. No cruise missiles may be used by either side. While their GEV-PCs go for rein forcements the MI set up to hold the city. Defending units may not escape. so the Paneuros have to dig them out the hard way. Attacker has an O gre Mk V. The defender sets up with 30 p oints of infantry and a LHWZ anywhere in the city. Few are more exciting t han attacking one.07 Ogre scenario. or W map edges. Enter from North. The attacker enters from the southern edge with 20 armor units. The pl ayers may agree to a draw if neither player can make an effective attack. Convoy Few missions are as boring as escorting a supply convoy.03 Escape. This scenario may be played on other maps with the same for ces. Defender has 40 infantry squads and a HWZ. The attacker needs to recover the autofa c to hold the line-the defender needs it to sustain a breakthrough. The set-up locations are: Shockwave: city is road 0115 to 1822 and hexes to southwest.0. G-3: city is road 0401 to 0422 and hexes to west.05 Alternate Maps. He may excha nge an armor unit for three points of infantry but they may only enter riding on vehicles. 7. Additional trucks may be taken to transport the infantry at no cost-those trucks will not count for victo .04 Objectives and Victory Conditions. All hexes on or north of the road from 01 04 to 2304 are town hexes. Defender has 10 trucks carrying cargo (may not be used to tran sport infantry). 7.01 Basic Setup. 8." A Combine mecha nized infantry force took that to heart.
8. 8. 9. infantry defends. The Shockwave map is used. The attacker enters from the east edge with 48 points of infantry (squads may be exchanged for heavy weapons squads (at 2:1) or reload packs (at 1:1). The attacker then reveals whether he chose option 1 or 2 for his force.02 Escape. etc. Option 1 units are set up on the board at least 5 hexes from an y defending unit. 8.05 Victory Levels. 16-30 VPs more is a marginal victory. 9. But when the armo r failed the Combine faced a 200-mile retreat unless it could disrupt the Paneur opean offensive. If one player has 0-15 VPs more than the other the game is a draw.07 Advanced Scenario. and a 60 SP Strongpoint in hex 0811 (this is an ammo and fuel dump-defending units may not use it for shelter). The defender has hovertrucks instead of trucks. Attacking units may escape from any map edge. Units may escape from any map edge. 8 infantry squads. but S-3 or the GEV map m ay also be used. The atta cking force is doubled. 9. Units which escape may not reenter the map. an armor unit may b e exchanged for 3 squads of infantry) The defender enters on a road in column (i.0 Forlorn Hope The division of labor is clear-tanks attack. the 2nd stack of units must expen d 1 movement point before entering the board.03 Objectives and Victory Points.01 Basic Set-up. The attackin g force is an Ogre Mk IV entering from the side chosen by the defender. Option 2 units enter from a map edge chosen by the defender.. Map G-3 is best for this scenario. Some units may be held off-board to enter on a later turn. 8. T he attacker may more and fire normally on his first turn. 8.04 Objectives and Victory Points.02 Special Rules.) and s ecretly notes the road hex on the opposite side of the board that they will exit on. well. Hovertru cks count for VPs if they exit the opposite map edge. there wasn't enough transport to get them to the Pyrenees line anyway. set up on board 10 armor units entering from off the board (no MHWZ allowed. The defender has 10 armor units.03 Escape. 8. The defender gets 10 VPs for every truck that exits at the designa ted hex. The attacker has two options for his force: 3 armor units. 8. Trucks that escape through the entry point or are stranded on the board count for no points. The strongpoint is a warehouse with the fuel .06 Alternate Maps.e. The attacker may be given an advantage by using the town and bridge destruction rules. The defender has hovertrucks instead of trucks. but all must ent er through the same hex.ry points. Defending units may e scape from the entry and exit road hexes. 12 infantry squads. More than 30 VPs ahead is a decisi ve victory. Hovertrucks count for VPs if they exit the opposite map edge. Defending units must be set up within 8 hexes of the strongpoint. If t he infantry can break the Paneuro supply line High Command will release the rese rve and cruise missiles. 9. Count points for destroyed units normally. not just the road hex. not just the road hex. If not. the 3rd must expend 2. So posts all along the line were stripped of their troops. The attacker gets 10 VPs for every cargo tru ck destroyed.08 Ogre Scenario.
10.and ammo needed to maintain the Paneuropean forces.02 Special Rules. Defender has an Ogre Mk III. The destruction of the buil ding is the only factor that matters in deciding victory. 9. Attacker has 48 points of infan try. If the building is undamaged it's a decisive def ense victory. 3 20 SP admin buildings. 10. and 4 large revetments (each of which may be exchanged for 2 small revetments).0 Beachhead D-Day -. 60 points of other infantry. Some attacking units may be held back to later turns. 9. or south. 9. attackers enter from east.05 Alternate Maps. One landing craft is provided for every unit that needs one. The GEV map is used. The defender sets up on the island with 2 laser towers. and 30 armo r units. attackers enter from west or south. If 30 or more points of damage is done to the buildin g the game is a draw. a 60 SP strongpoint. Double defending force. The attacker has 12 marine engineer squads. 6 entrenchments.04 Victory Levels. M1 unit that holds one armored un . and complicated.01 Basic Setup.07 Ogre Scenario. west. The attacker may enter from the map edge f rom hex 0105 to 0701. The attacker's regular infantry and armor units may enter t he map riding landing craft (LC)-this is a D1. S-3: Strongpoint in 0814. G-3: Strongpoint in 1210.06 Advanced Scenario. Destroying the building is a marginal attacker victory. six reload packs. and six GEV-PCs. 10. The set-up locations are: GEV: Strongpoint in 1408. This scenario may be played on other maps with the same for ces. If the attacker completely destroys the building and has mo re than six squads left he has a decisive victory. While the fleet stands offshore protec ting itself with lasers and smokescreens. 9. 12 squads heavy weapons infantry. 3 laser turrets. bloody. the marines must lead the way to captu re a port that more forces can be landed at. attackers enter from west or south.

G-3: Land is NW corner to stream. 10. .03 Escape. Attacks are applied to the LC a nd its carried unit with the same die roll. except for infantry which is placed swimming in the hex. An LC may not enter any terrain except water. Victory levels are as follows: Only attacking units are on the land and more than 1/3 of attacking force i s left decisive attacker victory Only attacking units are on the land marginal attacker victory Both sides have units on land draw Only defending units are on land marginal defender victory Only defending units are on land and 2 lasers and 44 VP of defending units are still operational decisive defender victory 10. attacker enters from 1101 to 2308.it (size 5 or smaller) or three infantry squads. The set-up locations are: G-2: Land is NE corner to stream. Defending units may escape from the south or east edges of the map . If the LC is adjacent to a la nd hex at the beginning of the movement phase the carried unit may move onto the land hex normally. If the LC is disabled by an attack t he carried unit may still move or fire normally. This scenario may be played on other maps with the same fo rces. Carried infantry may dismount to swim at any time. attacker enters from 0118 to 1123.05 Alternate Maps.04 Objectives and Victory Conditions. Attacking units may escape from the entry zone.
