Stosstactik Special Rules
Trench Fighters
Few soldiers had the experience and skill in hand-to-hand combat as German Stosstruppen.


SMG and Pistol teams from a Stoss Platoon hit on a roll of 2+ in Assaults (instead of 3+).

Stosstruppen Infiltration
Stosstruppen tactics relied on infiltration to close with the enemy undetected. Once in position, the assault troops were ready to unleash hell on the enemy trenches.


If you are the Attacker and have deployed at least one Stoss Platoon on the table, then all of the Stoss and Infanterie Platoons in your force may make a Spearhead Deployment move (see page 261 of the rulebook).

Mission Tactics
Before battle, every stormtrooper is briefed on their mission and how it relates to the overall battle plan.


If a Stoss Platoon’s Command team is Destroyed, another team takes over immediately. Remove any other Infantry team in the platoon that is within Command Distance of the Command team and replace it with the original Platoon Command team.

If there is no Infantry team within Command Distance, then the Platoon Command team is Destroyed and the
platoon is left leaderless.

The original Platoon Command team can still use this rule while a Warrior team is leading the platoon and acting as its Command team, but the rule does not apply to the Warrior team.
