Achtung Cthulhu Skirmish

So, what's inside the book and how does it work?

  • A fast-paced wargame rule set combining World War Two and the Cthulhu Mythos.
  • Uses the highly successful Dystopian Legions by Spartan Games for a fun but challenging tactical experience.
  • Based on the award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu roleplaying game setting by Modiphius Entertainment with
  • A major cast of heroes and villains, secret organisations, terrifying horrors and ancient artefacts.
  • Track the growing influence of the Mythos over the battlefield. As the Mythos Influence Level rises, strange and terrible things begin to happen to those involved in the conflict.
  • New Tactical Action Cards and ‘Model Assigned Rules’— MARs that capture the feel and flavour of the Achtung! Cthulhu settings.
  • Introducing rules for Mythos powers, spells and artefacts.
  • Stats for Achtung! Cthulhu forces as well as normal historical infantry, support weapons, vehicles and tanks.
  • Players from both sides can bring powerful spellcasters to bear—weaving spells across the battlefield to ensure victory over their enemy.
  • Written and converted by Matthew Hope (Relic Knights, AE-WWII, Wrath of Kings, Sedition Wars), with narrative design by Achtung! Cthulhu's John Houlihan.
  • Fully compatible with the existing Achtung! Cthulhu miniatures range. For more information on the range, see
  • Expand your campaigns with hero and villain characters like Sgt Brandon Carter, Ariane D’bois or ‘Sweet’ Liesel Bohm, Adawolfa Gabler, or Franz ‘the Blackbird’ Amsel.
  • Call for reinforcements like the Deep One war party, Servitors of Nyarlathotep, Badger’s Commandos or Demonhunter Pathfinders to rule the battlefield.
  • All purchases come with free download of Secret War Operations - free tutorial missions for both for both US and Black Sun operatives plus our massive Forest of Fear background storyline
  • Narrative base campaigns and expansion sets throughout the year will expand and enhance your adventures!
