Battle Mission 2 - Nightfall
Welcome to Battle Missions 2.
This will be a short series of easy-to-set-up missions that can be used to faciliate a pick-up war game.
The missions are aimed at being generic and include army building suggestions for fantasy/medieval, black powder and 20th century/scifi games.
This allows them to be used with nearly all war game rules systems out there.
Included are also example forces for a world war 2 Eastern Front scenario, letting you simply set up and play.
Brief notes will be included allowing the scenarios to be used in a campaign as well.

Mission 2 would be a straight-forward area control battle, if it didn't take place at night.
As you deploy your forces, you will be able to use forward elements to spearhead your force, but there's no guarantee they (or the rest of your army) will arrive to the field of battle where you intended them to!
Suggestions are included for handling night fighting in games that do not already provide rules for the situation.
Lastly, players who finished Battle Mission 1 will be able to take advantage of their victory when playing Mission 2.
