Hey, you! The Star Wars supplement for Combat Patrol has been released. Do you have your copy?

After many months of development, we are happy to announce the release of the free Star Wars supplement for Combat Patrol: World War II. This supplement was written by Greg Priebe, a long-time Star Wars fan. With this supplement, you can "recreate" your favorite skirmishes from the movies, television series, and comics.

Clones fight Droids to be the first to get their copy of the supplement

This supplement uses the streamlined and intuitive mechanics of Combat Patrol: World War II. Cards are used, not just to control activation, but to resolve combat, conduct movement, check morale, etc. There are not charts and tables to slow down the game. You will find instructional videos and other free downloads on the rules' webpage.

Hurry, Rex. We need to get our copy of the Star Wars supplement to Combat Patrol: WWII before the clankers

This supplement, like almost all of the other supplements for Combat Patrol: WWII, is free. You do need to own the basic rules and cards to play the game. The supplement is 26 pages of background, weapons stats, vehicle stats, rules for Jedi powers, and other material. This is a free download from either the rules' webpage, or the Sally 4th Combat Patrol page.

With the Star Wars supplement, you can breathe new life into those old collectible miniatures, and fight those big skirmishes

To help you get started right away, we have provided a play through video demonstration of a Combat Patrol game using this supplement. It is based on season one, episode one, of The Clone Wars in which Yoda and a handful of clones defeat a much larger droid force. You will find a link to this video on the Combat Patrol webpage.

We think you will find this video – combined with all the other instructional videos on the webpage – is a good way to see the ease-of-play and intuitive mechanics of Combat Patrol.

Rebels versus Stormtroopers in a town on a desert planet

We have also pre-made the unit cards you will need for a platoon of clones, droids, rebels, and stormtroopers – including a small number of vehicles. These too are available for free download. Just print them out and start playing.

Fighting on a snow-covered planet

If you have a box full of the old Star Wars collectible miniatures, or you are looking to play bigger battles than are possible with Imperial Assault, the Star Wars supplement for Combat Patrol: WWII will allow you to do so. We have used the rules (and this supplement) for games with as few as two players, and as many as ten.

A scene from the play-through video

This is a fan publication, and it is free. Disney and Lucasfilm allow these kind of fan publications.

Don't forget to check out the play-through video that is on the webpage. You can also go directly to it here.

A desperate fight on the outskirts of town

As a reminder, this is a supplement for Combat Patrol: WWII. You need the rules and cards to play the game. There are a number of purchase options available. You can order the sets of cards from DriveThruCards. You can order starter sets from Sally 4th or On Military Matters. Sally 4th sells individual action decks if you want to buy just one, to try out the mechanics yourself. Directions and links are on the rules' webpage.

Snips, make sure you get your copy of the supplement before the separatists!

Do I attack the death star or download my copy of the Star Wars supplement for Combat Patrol: WWII? I just can't decide!

Beyond Star Wars, Combat Patrol: WWII is also a very good set of rules for WWII skirmishes. On the webpage, you will see many other supplements that extend the basic mechanics for other historical periods.

We Hope You Enjoy the Supplement & Enjoy the Rules. May the Force be With You!
