Final Combat

ByBennett P. Lacy

Predicated on character attributes, Final Combat is a set of skirmish wargaming rules for role-playing and miniatures that provides a realistic close quarters battle simulation for squad level engagements of WWII. The fifth edition incorporates all that has been learned over the past twenty-years. Although once a great innovation, the Reason-to-Look mechanic was rarely used and has been eliminated. Moreover, the consolidation of tables and modifiers has rendered the Excel Spreadsheet obsolete. Now, the tables are grouped by positive and negative modifiers, which facilitates faster compilation. Final Combat employs a chit driven activation system that abstractly represents unit cohesion under combat conditions. It is unique because it presents a ground scale that is equal to the miniature in the context of "one second of worthwhile action." It also incorporates a scalable level of detail that allows players to eliminate the damage model and use generic character attributes. Although this book contains rules for armored combat, data sheets for individual tanks are not included. Anthology of Armor is a companion volume to this book and provides the necessary data for almost 200 AFVs. If you are looking for skirmish rules with simple mechanics, yet you demand the ultimate in realism, try Final Combat.
