[V2.x] New Bonus Markers for the new HoN Core Box
[FEELER] New Bonus Markers for the new HoN Core Box Posted on [19/12/2018] à 11:09

Crossposting this to the English forum. Link to the original topic.


Devil Pig designer Yann is asking which new Bonus Markers – those brown crates you randomly drop on the battlefield – we would like to see in the new Heroes of Normandie core box. The actual Heroes of Normandie core box is out of stock and should get a reprint in the future (no date announced).


The old Bonus Markers:

– 1x Special Order (one time usage)

– 2x +1 Order Token (Permanent)

– 1x +1 Card (to your hand limit) (Permanent)

– 1x Reload your hand of Action Cards (one time usage)

– 1x Initiative (one time usage)


New Additional Bonus Markers: (Proposed by the community so far and accepted by Yann).

– 1x Booby Trap (one time usage)

– 1x Empty

– 1x Objective (can be used in scenarios)

– 1x Reload a Gear Option (one time usage)

Still one to find :mrgreen:


Other things already done for the 2.0 reissue of the HoN Core Box.

We should get a preview 'soonish'.



  • New Aviation Tiles (like in HoBR and HoS).

  • New Decks (this was announced during the HoS Kickstarter campaign)


Upgrade kits are being considered.

Bon les gars, vous auriez des idées pour une ou des nouvelles caisses pour la boite de base de HoN ?

Les nouvelles caisses(en plus) :

– 1 X Booby Trap (une utilisation)

Thanks for cross posting!


A reinforcement/medic tile? Deploy a destroyed unit or patch up an infantry unit already wounded?


I’d be willing to buy an upgrade kit but not an entire new core box 🙂

Wait until you see what we have reserved for you…. We can't exclude that we thought about veterans too…. 😉

Thats always good news gduprez. 🙂

To be honest, I have learned to hate the Bonus Markers.


The problem was mainly the two permanent stars. If one player ended up with both, then that was a huge advantage. I always removed those from the mix when putting down the markers.


I did not mind the one-shot bonuses — discard and draw a new hand and temporary order for example


When the Bonus Tactics were MIA on the Stalingrad boards, I was not sorry at all to see them go.


So my vote is for things that do not benefit just one side permanently.


The proposed new Bonus Markers are much better. Although the Objective is permanent, but that can be captured by either side so that is fair.


I would suggest keep the one use Order marker in the new set. Even for those of us with everything, that would give us TWO one-shot Orders, which would work pretty well, and for new players it is a good final selection.

I like the idea.


The additional markers would be nice addition to the system.

ooooh my!!! 😎 😎 😎 Can't wait! Already hyped without even knowing what you guys are thinking about 😉


I liked the one shot markers more than the permanent markers as well. Even tho they offer a nice extra side objective. Even tho I usually end up not having the resources to fight the other player of their permanent marker.

I would happily buy another Core box set if you changed the names and side bar colour codes of the units included? this would give us more options to field.


New Bonus Markers for the new HoN Core Box Posted on [22/12/2018] à 16:09

I agree with Ainsty Castings, change the name of the units and side bar, and I would be glad to buy another core set.

I'll have to agree with Nostradunwhich about the permanent +1 order token and action card. These bonuses can create too much of a gap.


I am not sure if I would go as far as to remove them completely, but Nostradunwhich has a point.


New bonus markers:


Weapons crate


a) Set aside x number of weapon tokens, a player who gets this bonus objective can choose one of the bonus weapons for the unit to use.


b) Same as "a" but one specific weapon associated with the crate.


Equipment crate


Same as the weapons crate but filled with mines or grenades. The use of the equipment will be limited to the unit that picked up the bonus marker.


Happy HoN player in Toronto.
