Conflict of Heroes

Conflict of Heroes is a series of tactical wargames designed by Uwe Eickert and published by Academy Games.

Conflict of Heroes is known for its innovative gameplay mechanics, accessible rules, and emphasis on realism and historical accuracy.

Key features of Conflict of Heroes include:

  1. Action Point System: Conflict of Heroes uses an action point system, where players spend action points to move their units, fire weapons, and perform other actions on the battlefield. This system adds a layer of tactical decision-making and resource management to the gameplay.

  2. Firefight Generator: The game includes a Firefight Generator, which allows players to create custom scenarios with randomized terrain, objectives, and enemy forces. This feature provides virtually unlimited replayability and allows players to experience a wide variety of tactical situations.

  3. Squad-based Combat: Conflict of Heroes focuses on small-scale engagements between individual squads of soldiers, rather than large-scale battles involving entire armies. Players command infantry, armored vehicles, and support weapons as they maneuver across the battlefield and engage enemy forces.

  4. Realistic Mechanics: The game features realistic mechanics for combat, including line of sight, cover, suppression, morale, and damage resolution. Units have different attributes and capabilities, reflecting their historical counterparts and adding depth to the gameplay.

  5. Historical Settings: Conflict of Heroes offers scenarios set in various historical periods, including World War II on the Eastern Front and the Pacific Theater, as well as modern conflicts such as the Gulf War and the War in Afghanistan. Each scenario is meticulously researched and designed to capture the unique challenges and dynamics of the historical setting.
