Imaginative Strategist - With a wealth of material and
clearly the preferred site for abundance, variety and quality, The
Imaginative Strategist has a large selection of free-to-download
images for PanzerBlitz
Leader. A coherent selection of attractive counter sheets is
provided covering early war, late war, and the Pacific theatre as
well as Finnish, Polish, Rumanian and other minor nationalities.
This site is clearly an enabler of the revival of interest in the
classic PanzerBlitz franchise.
PanzerBlitz Site - Gregory Moore's PanzerBlitz/Panzer Leader
site is organised by period and Greg has provided not only
free-to-download counter images for PanzerBlitz
and Panzer Leader but also detailed organisational charts
expressed in unit counters for major combatant formations of the
periods he has already completed including early war and Western
Desert theatres. The value of these charts is hard to
overstate when assembling a new scenario from historical data; a
truly excellent site sharing synergy with The Imaginative
Strategist and a close second in usefulness for variant
Wargame Page - Mike's PanzerBlitz/Panzer Leader site is
dedicated to preserving PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader variants
originally published in Avalon Hill's gaming magazine The General.
Each of more than twenty free-to-download compressed files contains
variously counter images, maps, rules and scenarios for PanzerBlitz
and Panzer Leader. The value of these variants as a
reflection of the popularity and evolution of the franchise is
exceeded only by the enjoyment of playing out the additional
historical and hypothetical scenarios; another excellent site made
possible by the good will and effort of an enthusiastic gamer.
FreeThe Imaginative Strategist - With excellent
quality map-boards for both PanzerBlitz
Leader. The winter versions of the classic PanzerBlitz
originals are particularly satisfying. There is also a section with
additional and reworked boards for Arab-Israeli
Wars by Douglas Swanson.
FreeThe Imaginative Strategist - Again a leader
with aftermarket scenarios for PanzerBlitz
including a number of imaginative scenarios using new Imaginative
Strategist game map-boards by Alan R Arvold, Michael Flagiello,
Ward McBurney, Barrie McTaggart. Also offered are a set of
additional classic scenarios numbered 14-25 in original card format
by Robert D Harmon.
Situation 13 - Tom Oleson's original article from The
Wargamer's Guide to Panzerblitz. Not a scenario, per se,
but a point value system for PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader units for
players wishing to create their own scenarios with balanced forces.
Also a handy list of PanzerBlitz/Panzer Leader units
including factor values and number supplied in each game.
Storto's PanzerBlitz Site - Patrick's site offers a
significant number of mail order expansions for PanzerBlitz and
Panzer Leader including numerous variants
from The General, Tom
Williams and other
sources (including reproductions of Brian Train's Desert
Leader and Steppe Leader variants.) These contain,
variously, unmounted counters sheets, rules and/or scenarios. Some
of these are available elsewhere at no cost but are provided here
with pre-printed counter sheets of uniform colour, design and
quality along with necessary supporting pages and tables. Generally
Toshach Miniatures - (Unreviewed) TCME
provides two interesting modern download-only expansions for the
franchise under the generic title Tactical
Combat in the Middle East with
titles Battlefield Iraq and Stryker Brigade.
These include rulebook, counters, maps and scenarios and are priced
at USD$10 and USD$6 respectively. From their website:
Tactical Combat in the Middle
East: Battlefield Iraq is not a complete game. You will need a
copy of PanzerBlitz, Panzer Leader or The Arab and Israeli Wars in
order to play.
2XS Industries - (Unreviewed) 2XS
Industries provides a range of additional scenarios using their
own counters and maps for PanzerBlitz
at USD$10 each.
Products - A number of mail order expansions containing
variously mounted counters, rules and scenarios for PanzerBlitz and
Panzer Leader including Pokhorakova,
a Kursk scenario by Alan R Arvold, SS
Leader, which provides SS leadership rules and mounted
counters along with scenarios, and Lend
Lease, an expansion to these expansions.
Game 3, The Tactical Wargamer
An excellent, well referenced overview of the game that led to
3 Original and Revamp, ConSimWorld.com, Cannot
recommend too highly the TAC
3_original and revamp.zip download
on this resource page which contains the entire original TSG (Test
Series Games) edition of PanzerBlitz's immediate predecessor. After
resizing the map 96% and saving to JPEG it came out perfectly down
at the local print shop; and in colour too. Original
rules and units are in a PDF file as well but PanzerBlitz
owners can use their existing counters, rules and charts to play the
original Tac 3 scenarios. This game gives a whole new perspective to
the franchise when played on a roomy map with open terrain. Kudos to
whomever spent the time and energy on updating this.
