Rules for Self-propelled Guns

Whilst sorting out the troops I will use in the next play-test of my modified version of Joseph Morschauser's ‘Modern’ Period Wargames Rules, I decided to include a couple of self-propelled guns in the forces that the Eastlanders will be using.

There are no specific rules for self-propelled guns in the original rules, but they are so simple that it was almost a 'no brainer' to come up with some. They are:
  • They move like Tanks on and off roads
  • They have the Close Combat Power of Armoured Cars
  • Their armament has the same weapon range and uses the same dice scores as the non-self-propelled version of the gun they carry
  • Their armament can only fire in a 90-degree arc forward
I look forward to seeing how they perform in the play-test.


  1. Bob,

    Regarding self-propelled guns:

    Good idea. Works for me!


  2. Jim,

    It is the joy of having simple, basic rules ... they can be adapted very quickly for new circumstances.

    All the best,
