Wargaming with Plastic Army Men
Want to take your plastic army men to a whole new battlefield?
Introducing COMBAT STORM, the definitive wargame that uses your own collection of plastic army men as game pieces and a large playing area such as a large table or living-room floor as a battlefield.
For terrain, you can use common household objects to represent buildings and obstacles (e.g. books, wooden blocks, boxes, etc.) or use the included print-and-play papercraft terrain to build your own awesome cities and environments.
With the Combat Storm rules, your battlefield comes to life as you issue orders to your squads, by controlling their movements and attacks, in an effort to overcome the enemy and complete the mission at hand!
Looking for an easy-to-play wargame that brings refreshing new game mechanics to the table?
Combat Storm takes off where traditional wargames end by using a game system that is easy to learn for beginners but also provides opportunities for more advanced gameplay for veteran players, giving you the ultimate battlefield experience!
The soldiers in your collection of Plastic Army Men may look slightly different than the versions shown here, but this section gives you a good idea about what classes of soldiers are available for use in a game of Combat Storm.
RIFLEMENRifleman are the backbone of the army, using their assault rifles to lead the charge against enemy forces. Riflemen can also upgrade their weapons to give them the upper hand in battle.
SNIPERSnipers are elite marksman that carry powerful long-ranged rifles into battle which can pick off enemy targets from great distances. Snipers are also able to perform head-shot kills if their shots are on point.
SUPPORT INFANTRYSupport Infantry accompany squads into battle and provide machine gun fire support which can help to suppress enemy units. If a squad goes into a prone position, Support Infantry soldiers can deploy the bi-pods on their weapons and can let loose a highly accurate stream of firepower onto enemy targets.
ANTI-ARMORAnti-Armor soldiers are specially-trained to eliminate armored vehicles such as tanks and artillery vehicles on the battlefield. In some cases, they are also used to eliminate enemy bunkers and machine gun nests.
SERGEANTA Sergeant can influence the squad with a higher sense of morale and purpose, giving them a boost in performance and ability.
MEDICMedics are able to heal wounds that have been inflicted on fellow squad-mates and play an important role in helping to keep their squad from losing soldiers in battle.
GRENADIERThe Grenadier functions much like a standard Riflemen but also comes equipped with grenade launcher attachment on his rifle, capable of launching 40mm grenades at enemy targets.
DEMOLITION EXPERTDemolition Experts provide specialized firepower in the form of explosives and are called upon to perform functions such as destroying a designated target with a C4 explosive, supplying their squad with grenades or defusing a bomb.
SUPPLY SOLDIERThe Supply Soldier is similar to a regular Rifleman except he carries additional supplies and gear for the squad. The Supply Soldier is also capable of repairing damaged vehicles.
FORWARD OBSERVERThe Forward Observer's primary role is to provide intel and attack coordinates to artillery and air support (helicopter missile strikes and bombing runs). The Forward Observer also provides his squad with a Scouting Bonus at the beginning of the game that allows his squad to take an additional Movement Phase.
When extra firepower is needed on the battlefield, it's time to roll out the heavy armor and big guns!
MAIN BATTLE TANKThe Main Battle Tank is the most devastating piece of armor on the battlefield. Its main cannon unleashes terrible firepower against the enemy and its secondary machine guns clean up any remaining traces of opposition.
LIGHT TANKThe Light Tank's role is to provide supporting fire against vehicles and infantry with its powerful 25mm main cannon, missiles and mounted machine gun. Its secondary role is to act as a troop transport, with the capacity to carry up to 6 soldiers.
ARTILLERY VEHICLEThe Mobile Artillery Vehicle brings long-range military might to the battlefield in the form of ground-shaking artillery shells. What it lacks in accuracy, the Mobile Artillery Vehicle makes up for with extreme destruction.
AIR DEFENSE & GROUND SUPPORTThe Air Defense Ground Support Vehicle (ADGSV) is able to protect military forces against air attacks (helicopter missile strikes and bombing runs) and artillery shelling, as well as providing heavy firepower support for troops on the ground.
The Combat Storm 2nd Edition Rulebook contains complete step-by-step instructions for playing the game with two or more players, including many helpful examples throughout to help illustrate the gameplay.

I am very impressed with your game’s system and with your philosophy. With the very low price and great mechanics, your game system has really done a great job setting itself apart from other, much more expensive, games. Thank you for all the hard work and thought that you have put into this game and thank you for letting me know that you appreciate me for buying your game (very few war game companies seem to care about the consumers feelings anymore).
