Description

The War Storm Series is a series designed to simulate Combined Weapon Combat at Section Scale.

Created by Juan Carlos Cebrián and Nicolás Eskubi, and graphic design by Nicolás Eskubi (winner of several CSR Awards).

The series is based on the principle of simultaneous execution, or simply “WE GO”, a hybrid system of shifts and “real time”.

It offers medium complexity. Although it is designed for 2 players, it is also possible to play it alone, along with any War Storm Series game, using the new Alone in the Storm expansion.

The duration of the game will vary depending on the chosen scenario and its scale, between 1 and 2 hours.

Scale 

The scale is section level, with units representing groups of between 30 and 40 soldiers, tokens of weapons representing groups of 3-4 weapons and their servants (20-25 soldiers) and Armoured Vehicles and Transports, representing groups of 3 to 5 vehicles with their corresponding crews.

Each hexagon on the map represents a distance of approximately 150 to 200 meters.

Scenarios are divided into turns representing approximately 12-15 minutes of action.

System of play

The emphasis of the War Storm Series system is on the controller, with the officers being the heart of the game.

These officers can activate units, coordinate with each other, direct artillery missions, air support missions, smoke curtains, modify morale checks, coordinate assaults and much more.

Another key point in the series is morale, which transfers the effects of leadership to the board and adds depth to the game, as the sections under our command will not be cardboard tokens that blindly obey orders, but it will be necessary to check morale to perform actions that soldiers may consider risky such as starting an assault or crossing a barbed wire.

Board

The game uses isomorphic maps, each of which can be aligned with either side of the other maps. This allows an almost unlimited number of combinations to represent any situation of the terrain, including scenarios designed by the player.

Rejugability

Beyond the interaction between the forces disputing each scenario and the changing situations of a battle, War Storm Series implements a random system for the election of officers, which, together with their different capabilities, diversifies the game experience as each scenario is tackled.

Normandy, The Beginning of the End (2018)

Fourth installment of the series, constituting an independent title.

It recreates the events related to the Normandy landing and allows players to play at a tactical level the most important battles of Day D from the American beaches to the outskirts of Saint Lò.

The specific manual incorporates rules covering: landings, battalion officers, paratroopers, reconnaissance and amphibians, among others.

Add units such as Waffen SS, Fallschirmjäger and Free French Troops, as well as Rangers or paratroopers on the American side.

This title also incorporates a set of adapted rules very didactic, to facilitate the learning curve of the player who joins the series. In addition, it has a complete regulation revised and updated. It also has a points system to create your own battles, which makes the game is enormously rejugable, no two games are the same.
