INCURSION is set in the world of Secrets of the Third Reich and is the ultimate combination of board game and miniatures game. Armored troopers of the US “Lucky Seventh” and stalwart commandos of the United Kingdom’s MI-13 hurtle through underground bunkers and combat the monstrous forces of the German SWD in a furious race against time. The Doomsday Device is ticking and neither the Allies nor the Axis can fail. This two player game features a tight story line campaign that culminates in an epic and desperate climax. The game mechanics are simple to grasp allowing players to instantly focus on their tactical options. Game play is incredibly fast-paced and tense and players choose their forces through a card-based Requisition Point system. The game is played on a board with a special card deck and highly detailed 30 mm metal miniatures. You can also use the miniatures in games of Secrets of the Third Reich. Rules can be found for them here.

In 1946, after stunning German victories on both fronts largely attributed to Vergeltungswaffe 4, a compound that kills painfully and resurrects corpses as dangerous animate objects, Franco joined the Axis. Spanish forces backed by Brandenburger commandos and Fallschirmjager Drop Armor assaulted the British held rock of Gibraltar. Germany claimed the ancient fort with its network of caves and aggressively expanded it into a vast underground research, command, and control center, plumbing the depths of the Rock. In 1949, allied forces mount a massive offensive to retake it. The campaign is bloody and hard-fought but ultimately successful. German and Spanish personnel escape by U-boat from underwater chambers. US and British forces enter the German compound only to be beaten back by the horrors that lurk within the vast twisted labyrinth under Gibraltar. Many commanders feel that the only recourse is to seal the caves from the surface, so that is done. Unfortunately it is impossible to determine the lo cation of all the undersea tunnels. Zombie naval mines damage or destroy numerous smaller vessels and sink the aircraft carrier Lexington as they sally forth from these undersea caves. MI-13 stumbles onto communiqués detailing German SWD plans for a diabolical Doomsday Device under Gibraltar. Given the effectiveness of previous SWD attacks, the credibility of these reports cannot be ignored. The decision is made to clear the caves. MI-13 Commandos and elements of the US Lucky Seventh invade the stronghold in a desperate race to shut down the Doomsday Device before it can be deployed.






I recently participated in a Kickstarter from IRONHEARTARTISANS to purchase a set of Weird War Dice. I chose to get a set of the green USA dice. I plan to use them in my miniature games. I should be getting them in the mail sometime in August. When they show up, I’ll post a picture of them. Keep an eye out for more cool Weird War stuff coming from IRONHEARTARTISANS in the future.


Once more unto the breach!




The whole thing is going to go on Kickstarter in a few months.

Operation: Rebirth, also called Project: Rebirth, is an US government project originally administered by the US Army to create a new line of Supersoldiers for its World War II effort. It was part of a larger operation known as Weapon Plus. It was headed up by Dr. Abraham Erskine.

Abraham Erskine was the scientist who first developed the Super-Soldier Serum, as well as the Vita-Rays designed to create an army of enhanced human beings whose physical defects and limitations would be eliminated for the USA World War II efforts.

His first efforts with the serum were deemed as failures. However, Erskine continued to refine the process.  After weeks of tests, Steve Rogers was at last administered the Super-Soldier Serum. Given part of the compound intravenously and another part orally, Rogers was then bombarded by vita-rays, a special combination of exotic wavelengths of radiation designed to accelerate and stabilize the serum’s effect on his body. Steve Rogers emerged from the vita-ray chamber with a perfect human body. A Nazi spy, who observed the experiment, murdered Dr. Erskine mere minutes after its conclusion. Dr. Erskine died without fully committing the Super-Soldier formula to paper, leaving Rogers the sole beneficiary of his genius.

With Erskine’s murder, Wilfred Nagel took over the American program. His attempt to recreate Erskine’s successful process did not succeed in mass production. Nagel’s early attempts to recreate Erskine’s successful chemical formula resulted in African-American super soldiers, most prominently Isaiah Bradley. Three hundred African-American soldiers were taken from Camp Cathcart and subjected to potentially fatal experiments at an undisclosed location in an attempt to recreate Erskine’s Rogers successful Super-Soldier Formula version. Only five men survived the original trials; hundreds of test subjects left behind at Camp Cathcart and the camp’s commander were executed by US soldiers in the name of secrecy, the families of the three hundred were told that they had died in battle.

Although there were many later attempts to recreate or reverse-engineer Operation: Rebirth’s Super-Soldier Serum in detail, none are known to have been involved with Weapon Plus except for the attempt that resulted in the creation of Isaiah Bradley’s son Josiah X nor have been successful in replicating the missing Vita Ray part as with Steve Rogerswho was to have accurately recreated the chemical part of the successful sample. Weapon Plus considers Steven Rogers as its most successful creation.

A second Project Rebirth was endorsed by the US Military, using the tamed alien symbiote Venom with veteran Flash Thompson in order to create a new Super-Solider: Agent Venom. Flash became the new Venom when he was enlisted as a part of Project Rebirth. Flash was bonded with the symbiote, recently acquired by the U.S. government after Mac Gargan’s arrest after the Siege of Asgard. While bonded, Flash was able to reproduce his legs and had powers comparable to Spider-Man.

Adolf Hitler, had many brushes with the esoteric during his career. He may have been manipulated by Heinrich Krowler and the Chapel of Dresden. Accounts vary, but at some point rogue geneticist Arnim Zola established a process by which a person could project their mind onto a cloned body. He presented this process to Adolf Hitler. Apparently in his new cloned body, Hitler established the haven for criminals called Erewhon in South America as well as staging a coup in the South American nation of San Gusto.

The Hate-Monger (also called “Nazi X”) first appeared in San Gusto in South America, and came to the attention of authorities when he took over with the use of storm troopers, hoping to upset the balance of power in South America. The Fantastic Four saw a hate rally in New York City and the Thing tried to wreck it, but the Fantastic Four were caught off guard by Hate-Monger’s weapon — the Hate-Ray — which instilled hate for others causing them to fight each other. As a result, the team disbanded and went their separate ways.

Nick Fury, at the time a CIA agent, then managed to trick Mister Fantastic into traveling to San Gusto with him to fight the Hate-Monger, knowing the other members would follow. The Hate-Monger saw the plane leaving and used a device that travelled underground by the use of flames that carved out tunnels to quickly get to South America. Fury and Reed fought off some of the rebels, and infiltrated the Hate-Monger’s headquarters after Reed found a device sending out beams and found the source of the disturbance. However, Reed was paralyzed with nerve gas and captured by the Hate-Monger, who revealed he had been bouncing his ray off the Moon, which had been causing abnormal effects on the tides.

Fury managed to cure Mister Fantastic after getting the cure for the ray and gas from the Hate-Monger at gunpoint, though the Hate-Monger stopped them capturing him by lowering bulletproof glass. Mister Fantastic then gave the antidote to the other members, and together they got to the base to help Nick Fury. In the final confrontation, the Hate-Monger was shot and killed by some of his own storm-troopers when an H-Ray beam struck some soldiers by mistake due to the Invisible Girl. When Mr. Fantastic removed the Hate-Monger’s mask, it was revealed that Hate-Monger was Adolf Hitler — who apparently survived World War II, though it is claimed it may be one of his doubles.

It was discovered later that the scientist Arnim Zola had perfected a means of transferring the mind to the body of a clone, thereby allowing Hitler to live on in the event of the death of his body. The Hate-Monger suffered a succession of defeats by Nick Fury, who wrecked the Hate-Monger’s attempt to blackmail the nations of Earth with the “hate-ray” from an orbiting space station. The Hate-Monger was killed again.


Originally, Captain America, his sidekick Bucky, the original android Human Torch, the Torch’s sidekick Toro, and Namor the Sub-Mariner were together as heroes opposing the forces of Nazism. When these superheroes saved the life of Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill from Master Man, the thankful Churchill suggested that they should become a team, known as the Invaders.

The Invaders fought the Axis Powers over the world until eventually finding themselves in England, where they met Lord James Montgomery Falsworth, the original WWI-era Union Jack. He joined the team and provided them with a base of operations in England. Eventually Falsworth’s children Brian (the second Union Jack) and Jacqueline (Spitfire) became members. The team later added Miss America and super-speedster the Whizzer, during a battle with the Super-Axis. Later, against the threat of the Battle-Axis, the team added the Blazing Skull and the Silver Scorpion to its roster.
