Besides the core rules,miniatures, terrain what else do you need to play these rules (type of dice etc.)?

For dice you will need a lot of D6, preferably in different colors. You will also need sets of tokens for the game, indicating the status of each tank. Lardies sell token sets on their website, and you can get them bundled with the rulebook. Of course you can also make them.
Each tank will also use a dashboard that can be printed from the Lardies forum or copied from the rulebook. If you donīt want to make copies for every game you can laminate it.

Itīs a great game, loads of fun, and very addictive!

I have the tokens, they are a nice bit of bling. But a set of tiddly-winks would do as well.

You will need a tape measure, or other measuring device.

Some players.

I forgot the tape measure, thanks advocate. And with the dice, itīs six per tank for command dice, and then dice for hits and saves and so on.

If you want an opponent, my solo system (and an improved points system)- is on our club website at this link

You might want some terrain…


Here is a pic of one of my pre-printed and laminated dashboards…

Not a necessity by any means but nice to have are these MDF dashboards from Dark Ops:

I am in the middle of finishing up a pack of 9 of these.
