Post RTD the Wunder waffen
This will be my most ambitious project yet and this time I'm going all in.

Fluff first:

The year is 1948, D-Day has failed miserably, England is lost, the Nazies are gathering their forces to start the invasion of the United States. Spies bring back frightening intel on the German experimental weapons, guns that spit lightning and soldiers that get back up after having their arm blown off. The allies took a gamble and focussed a lot of resources on the mildly successful iron infantry project to develop 8 foot tall hydraulically powered exoskeletons capable of carrying heavy weapons with ease. The first units outfitted with them report reliability issues but that they make brilliant breakthrough units. Italy obviously flipflopped back to the Axis side. In a last ditch attempt to gain a foothold in Europe the Canadian government started a coup in Spain, the Nazies have consolidated their forces along the Pyrenees and are desperately besieging the city of Zaragoza.

Your squads have been selected (or accidentally dragged along) to find out what the Axis forces are so desperately trying to get to in Zaragoza before it's too late.

Gameplay:

D10 based combat with a map, that's right, a bloody map!
D10 to hit, D10 to test against any kind of possible armor, D10 to see how badly hurt the shot person is.
Natural 10s always succeed, natural 0s always fail. Simple enough.

You don't just play one guy though, you play a squad of soldiers with a specialization. I'll give a few examples:
Canadian Mechanized infantry:
Soviet Conscript squad:
Defected Wehrmacht:
Iron Infantry breakthrough team:
Spanish Partisans:

As you can see there's more than enough leeway to come up with something that is truly unique, if you have questions just run em by me and we'll work something out. Just come up with some really cool/weird unit and we'll go from there. Feel free to name any of your squad members.
Weapon stats will be made up by me when we start.

Alright people, rules time!
Shooting, first an example, the trusty M1 garand.
Code:
M1 Garand: 2, 100m, 4+, -1

Those numbers, respectively, are: amount of shots, engagement range, hit roll, damage bonus.
I can hear you thinking "cool, now what?" Well here's the shooting action order:
Step 1: Determine range, 100m is the ideal range, but that's not all there's to it, weapons have a -1 to hit at less than 50% range, and between 100% and 150%. So the example M1 would need a 5+ to hit at 0m to 50m, 4+ at 50m to 100m, and a 5+ once again between 100m and 150m.(I realize this is really short but we're in close quarters here people.)
Step 1a: Cover gives a -1 to hit, heavy cover gives a -2 instead.
Step 2: For each hit roll the enemy's armor with the damage bonus. So for instance if the Garand would land 1 shot on a enemy grenadier with 5+ armor the enemy would instand roll a 6+ armor roll.
Step 3: If the enemy rolls above his armor nothing happens, the hit is negated. But if he fails his armor roll he rolls again on the damage table to see what happens, adding 1 point for each extra point the armor roll was failed by. (If a 3 is rolled on a 5+ the bonus is 1 for instance.)
Code:
1-5 Knocked down: no action for the next turn.
6-10 Wounded: Same as knocked down, with a permanent -1 to hit penalty
11-13 Out of action: Badly wounded, medics can attempt to reduce this to Wounded when not under attack.
14-15 Dead: Very very badly wounded.

As you can see, this means that only if you badly fail your armor roll you'll die. This also means that really heavily armored units like vehicles will require a weapon with a high damage bonus to actually take them out of action.
Got it? Either way, we're moving on to your individual squads, welcome to college.

Map and movement ranges coming later this week, just be glad you got the rules today.(except melee combat.) Last chance to make minor changes to squads.

A suggestion for the radio ability, as requested: repeated use (with a very long cool-down time) marks a target for increasingly destructive waves of artillery and/or air support.
