This is a downloadable and printable PDF file for your licensed use only.
You will need Adobe Reader version 10 or later.

Blood and Guts contains all the platoon lists for the U.S. Army. It also contains the weapons, vehicles, and support weapons used by the U.S. Army in WWII. The three scenarios allow players to put their U.S. forces up against the Germans in two theaters (Italy and Normandy) covering three different types of tactical challenges (Defense, Attack, and Airborne Drop). A short history and timeline of the U.S. involvement in WWII and some ends notes on how to use the book gives players the complete Disposable Heroes II supplement they need to play the U.S. Army in WWII.

Why Disposable Heroes II?

This is an updated version of the original Blood and Guts U.S. Army Book for Disposable Heroes II WW2 Wargaming Rules.

A little about the Disposable Heroes II WW2 Wargaming Rules:

Disposable Heroes II plays fast. Disposable Heroes II is intuitive. Disposable Heroes II emphasizes fire and maneuver and those tactics work. Disposable Heroes II actually creates tension between advancing attackers and hidden defenders without the need for maps or hidden unit movement record keeping. The hidden rules are simple and elegant. Disposable Heroes II actually captures the tension and shock of initial contact in a platoon level WWII battle in a way that no other system does. The friction the scenario design and First Fire rules creates is refreshingly realistic and yet very simple to use. Disposable Heroes II is a full color illustrated rule book. Disposable Heroes II is fully supported. All of the original army books are usable and will be redesigned as the originals sell out. There is no “codex creep” other rules experience.


Price of Glory (WW1 / RCW / Interwar Skirmish) Wargaming Rules (PDF – Digital Version)

Price of Glory is a wargame system intended to recreate small unit skirmishes during World War I. The models in Price of Glory each represent one man or vehicle (1:1 scale). The smallest unit in most World War I armies was a platoon of 30 or more men. This system generally breaks units down into groups of 5-10 men for ease of play and to represent slices of time. While these subunits below the platoon level are not necessarily historically accurate on a structural basis, the system uses them to break the game into the actions of small groups of men (units) over time (game turns).

We developed this system to fill a demand for a set of World War I rules designed to fit in between the available rules that focus on individual combat or large battles of company size or larger. The typical game of Price of Glory will contain around 30-50 models a side, plus the occasional vehicle rather than the 100 or more needed for many other systems. We intend this system to be used to fight battles between almost every conceivable type of World War I combatant and on every type of battlefield. From the tenacious defenders of France facing German Stormtroopers in the battle of Verdun, to the grinding slog of the British and their tank attacks during Cambrai, to the various colonial troops fighting in the harsh terrain of the African wilds, all the way to the White and Red armies slugging it out during the Russian Civil War. This is not just a system for trench warfare. Virtually any conflict and setting during the early 19th century up until World War II can be gamed using these rules. We hope you find the system easily adaptable to your needs.

WW2 Rules: Iron Ivan’s Disposable Heroes: Point Blank (PDF – Digital Version)

$20.00



This is a downloadable and printable PDF file for your licensed use only.
You will need Adobe Reader version 10 or later.

A complete squad level skirmish miniatures game for the 20th Century to Present Day from the Iron Ivan Games Division of Sinister Labs. By Keith Stine.

Disposable Heroes: Point Blank is a set of skirmish rules that recreates 1:1 squad level combat for modern firearms combat, from The Great War all the way through to today and beyond. The system is designed to be flexible, adaptable, and easy to use while still providing a player with a realistic combat experience. Rather than detail bolted on for the sake of complexity or as a superficial way of creating “realism” through process over outcome, Disposable Heroes: Point Blank desires to recreate fast and dangerous combat boiled down to the essentials of command & control, fire, suppression, and maneuver.

Disposable Heroes and Coffin for Seven Brothers Compatibility: It is our intention to allow players of this system to fully use the information presented in our platoon level rules Disposable Heroes and Coffin for Seven Brothers (DHC7B). This includes all of the army books and their relevant infantry lists and vehicle and artillery data cards. The only thing a player needs to convert those books to use for Point Blank is in this book. The only characteristic missing in those books is the Training & Experience value, which can be found in this book and assigned as needed to those lists.

Scale: Disposable Heroes: Point Blank is designed with 28mm miniatures in mind, though other scales can easily be used. See the End Notes section in the back of the book for differences when playing smaller or larger scales.

Ground Scale: Ground scale is the same as the miniature scale being used. Weapon ranges are based on effective range in combat by the soldier’s using them, not on the weapons actual range and accuracy on a firing range.

Basing: All models should be singly based.

Miniatures Used: Generally a player controls a squad of soldiers plus perhaps a support weapon or two or specialists such as engineers, forward observers, etc. The game may also include 3-5 vehicles or may even be an all armor game. The rules are well balanced between infantry and armor, and players should not feel they can’t include heavier tanks, even when up against all infantry!

Scope of the Game: Disposable Heroes: Point Blank is a man to man action game focused on the actions of a squad of soldiers. It is ideal for running games recreating patrols, raids, scouting, and all other manner of small scale action (such as protecting a forward observer, snatching a prisoner, knocking out a gun, etc.). It is also ideal for playing straight up squad versus squad action with no special objectives in mind other than closing with the enemy and destroying him!

Size of Forces: It is not recommended that a single player controls more than a platoon of soldiers in their games. Platoon and company size games are certainly possible and playable, but each player should ideally control a squad and no more than a platoon.
