Since HoN and HoS are 2D games, would it not be easier to use Vassal?

Happy HoN player in Toronto.

That's a great question slyfox! I've never used Vassal so I never considered using it before now. I'll definitely have to try a proof of concept and see how it compares.


I imagine the effort for using Vassal or TTS wouldn't be too different, since the mod boils down to: (1) adding lots of 2d images and (2) scripting to automate setting things up.


However, I really love Tabletop Simulator (even for 2d games) because it offers:



  • A realistic 3d environment that makes it feel like I'm actually sitting at a table with my friends. It's very satisfying to roll dice across the table in 3d 🙂 . Also, someday I'd like to add optional 3d effects like fog and rain — I played around with rain and it's really awesome!

  • This mod benefits from a huge content ecosystem on TTS. For example, I can add fog/rain effects created by another user.

  • The mod is hosted by Steam, which makes it discoverable/searchable by a large player base, users can provide ratings, it has an integrated forum, and it's free to host.

  • Virtual reality — I don't have a VR headset yet, but I tried playing HoN in VR at a friend's place and it was pretty awesome!

  • and more!

there's an old vassal module. I don't know if it works yet

I've added Sainte Mère Église and Gazette 3 (Easy Company) to the TTS mod today. Enjoy!

If you need help with the mod let me know 🙂

I'm glad you're enjoying the mod!


I'll work on adding the D-Day expansion soon. It may take me 1-2 weeks or so. I can add the terrain boards immediately if you'd like, but I wouldn't be able to add the bunkers/razor wire/etc. so quickly.

Thanks! I've sent you a PM 🙂


I could use some help with cropping the individual images out of the larger punchboard images. I'm happy to take anyone's help with this.
