NecroWWII Army Lists

NecroWWII Army Lists

Here are some army list ideas for my NecroWWII rules. These are very basic and very incomplete but they are a good starting point. Someday I will get around to filling in the holes and adding in more troop types.

Regular Army Troops (All nations)

These are the standard troops that make-up the bulk of WWII armies. No regular army squad may be equipped with assault rifles. Only Russian Squads may be equipped with Molotov Cocktails. Only US Marines may equip up to two troops with Shotguns. No others may have shotguns.

Green troops may be equipped with a Rifle (SLR) and grenades. Green Troops may crew Support Weapons but if they do they surrender their shooting action. Green Troops may never test to escape pinning. Green troops may not have SMGs.

Paratroopers (All nations)

Paratroopers are highly trained and elite soldiers. As a result they never have Green troops. In addition they are better equipped than standard soldiers. All Paratrooper squads may be equipped with two Support Weapons and may purchase two Weapon Specialists. German Paratroopers may be equipped with Assault Rifles.

A medic has the same function as a medipak from the basic rules. Medics may be equipped with a SMG, Carbine or pistol. Medic must spend one turn in base to base contact with the victim to use the medic ability. A medic may not treat himself. A medic’s primary function is to treat wounded not to fight. The medic will immediately move towards any friendly figure that is down unless an initiative test is pasted. This test must be passed at the start of any movement phase in which a figure is down (unless the player doesn’t want to hold the medic in place). Medics are very important to the morale of a unit, if a medic goes down while treating a wounded soldier the medic unit is subject to the rules for frenzy. A medic that is actively engaged in fighting may be targeted with no chance of causing the enemy unit to Frenzy.
