Minefield Option 1:

Cost:  2 Mines for 3 IPCs

Movement:  1 during non-combat movement (no movement once activated)
Attack:  N/A
Defense:  1 (D6), 2 (D12), 3 (D20)
Transport Class:  4 mines or 2 mines & 1 infantry/artillery per naval transport/truck

           Minefields are single use defensive units that require “activation”.  They may only be involved defensively in land combat against ground units.  There is no limit to the number of minefields that may be placed in a territory.  For game play purposes, active minefields protect the entire territory when attacked by ground units.  (Optional: Minefields only protect a single border)  Minefields will remain active until detonated.

          

           Minefields have “first strike” capability.  When attacked the defending player controlling active minefield(s) should roll for each minefield one at a time.  Each roll expends one minefield regardless if it scores a hit or not.  Each active minefield rolls to hit until all enemy units are destroyed, or all minefields have been expended.  The minefield’s controller may move freely through the territory without being subject to them, as would the controller’s allies.

          

           Inactive minefields cannot defend or be taken as losses if that territory is attacked.  If a territory is occupied with inactive minefields they are considered lost and removed from play.


 Minefield Option 2:

Cost:  5

Movement: 1 during non-combat movement (no movement once activated)
Attack:  N/A
Defense:  1 (D6), 2 (D12), 3 (D20)
Transport Class:  Same as infantry    


           Minefields are defensive units that require “activation”.  They may only be involved defensively in land combat against ground units.  Players may only have one minefield per territory.  For game play purposes, active minefields protect the entire territory when defending.  (Optional: Minefields only protect a single border)

          

           Minefields have “first strike” capability, however only during the first cycle of combat.  When attacked the defending player controlling active minefield(s) would receive “3” defensive rolls regardless the number of attacking enemy ground units.  The mine’s controller may move freely through the territory without being subject to them, as would the controller’s allies.

          

           Minefields may not be taken as casualties, and do not maintain a zone of control.  Minefields do not receive defensive rolls if there are no other friendly units to help in defense.  If an enemy player captures a territory with a minefield, the minefield would be removed from play.  Inactive minefields cannot defend or be taken as losses if that territory is attacked.  If a territory is occupied with inactive minefields they are considered lost and removed from play.


Miscellaneous Mine Options:

           Minefields prevent units from Blitzing.

Color and Depth
I bought these pieces for A&A 1940. The quality is high in both color and the crisp edges. As with the Naval Bases and Airfield markers, these pieces let you ditch the drab OOB markers for something that looks really sharp on the board. For these pieces, I have come up with some house rules. They can be bought for 5 IPCs and placed in any territory the player controls. Any unit passing through the territory on a combat move is immediately attacked in the same manner as aircraft by anti-aircraft units in the older versions. Mines remain on the board and can only be removed by infantry units by basically having a battle with the mines (assuming there are no other enemy units in the territory). These are great pieces to allow you to add a bit more tactical depth to the game which might end up being a strategic game changer. Great job HBG.

HBG Minefield Marker (Acrylic)
Yet again HBG has produced a really great piece for use as you, the gamer, see fit! all that's missing is your house rule or perhaps a rule from an expansion.
