LnL-Heroes of the Blitzkrieg
I began to work on this more than 2 years ago. After several up & downs, other projects etc... it seems I'm in the final run now. The maps and layout are ready to print, the counters are all drawn, and I just have to playtest the scenarios one last time... Today, David, who drawn half of the counters and put all of them on the countersheets for the printer, sent me the first complete half countersheet. Cool and very encouraging. For the first time, the game begins to look like "for real". :) Emotion...

This is about 1/6th of the counters there will be in the module. Part of the german OoB :

Well, we have no legionnaires, but we have morrocans and algerians at least in the scenarios. They use generaly generic infantry counters (the good ones). We have also a senegalese leader and algerian and morocan spahis who have their own counters :


Horse units have special capability of charge and opportunity movement. They are fun to play but very exposed.

The North African troops, mixed regiment or tirailleurs regiment, were amongst the best french troops. And they paid an heavy tribute in this war. It would have been a shame to not have scenarios about them. La Horgne, Mormal etc...

(Mark, I'm reading the rules again right now and will send them to you in a couple of hours)

Aah, then there is room for a "Heroes of the Blitzkrieg 2" :-)

Nope.

They are magnificent! Do you have any cool legionnaires or Moroccans?

Thanks Marc :)


I finally redrawn the belgian squads. The "chasseurs Ardennais" are Good "light" warriors. stealth movement, morale 6 when shaken, ambush capability in certain circumstances. They fought like devils in Bodange. When, after a bloody day of battle, they finally surrendered, the Gremans asked : "but where are all the others ?". Green berets is not for chickens. About 40 guys delayed a full Pzd for a day.

Okay. All the counters are now done. The last ones : a belgian hero (not definitive background color) and the french infantry of the "reserve" division (morale 4 when shaken)...


The scenarios are 80% playtested.
After the approval from the boss ( they say that's someone with a red shirt ), I still have to layout all the stuff (box, scenarios, skillcards etc..).
