Heroes of Normandie

Core box ENG - HoN - Une

A wargame in the tradition of the classic Hollywood war movies.

Just beyond the Normandy Coast in the beautiful summer of 1944… The sun shines, the daisies bloom, the hedgerows stand tall. Early in the morning, distant machine guns chatter sporadically, and the boom of distant explosions rumble in the sky. Thousand of men battle one another and die, in bravery or in cowardice, as Heroes or simply as men.

In our story, we leave out the extras and focus in on the Heroes who populate the classic Hollywood war movies, from the supporting actors up to the stars. A Bridge Too Far, The Longest Day, Patton, Kelly’s Heroes, Saving Private Ryan. These films are our inspirations, and this is what we have given you in Heroes of Normandie!

In order to reproduce the atmosphere of these timeless movie classics, we stepped up the pace of the traditional war game. We have provided you with everything you need to make even the smallest scene explosively exciting! We want you to grin with delight as you mow down those invading GIs with your MG42, or when you bombard those Nazi swine with your bunker smashing mortar fire!

  • 4 complete platoons and their recruiting options (2 US and 2 German)
  • 2 Officers (1 US and 1 German)
  • Tanks, light vehicles, heavy weapons, character traits, equipment and orders for both armies.
  • 6 Heroes (3 US and 3 German)
  • 28 wooden order markers
  • 2 US dice
  • 2 German dice
  • 6 two-sided gameboards
  • 1 turn counter track and its special markers
  • 2 decks of 76 cards
  • 3 destructible houses
  • 4 defensive positions
  • 1 rulebook
  • 1 scenario book

Making a total of 255 pieces for almost 6 pounds of war game gear!

    This is my favorite game of all time
    It has easy mechanics and is a perfect game for me to play

    No, why?

    I just bought this game… there is a new edition already??

    This looks like a great game! Love tactical gaming.. love miniatures. Currently, I own a more than complete set of Memoir 44 (all expansions x4) and Panzer Blitz/ Panzer Leader/Squad Leader, plus supplemental units. STILL… this game looks very comfortable and engaging. Lots of room for expansion, and a create-your own scenario fight. What is the price point on their game?????

    That’s why we made a kickstarter to propose you a storage solution. You can find the terrain tile storage box here: http://www.devil-pig-games.com/en/product/boite-de-rangement-de-terrain/

    Would be nice if the company would take into account how the customer is going to store the expansions, base game barely fits in the box. Bought river set expansion, but no where to store it. Thought it was going to be in a small box, but no. Understand keeping cost down, but this is ridiculous. Only solution for me is to not buy expansions.

    Hello,

    The actual edition is always the one of 2014 (lot number finishing by 14). After the releasing of the Compendium, we will make another version I think.

    I have a similar question as Scott Gilbaugh.

    I see there is an “Extended Edition” available now of Heroes of Normandy? Where on the site can I purchase that version?

  16. 2. Scott Gilbaugh said :

    What is the latest edition of hon as of April 2016? How can I tell the most current edition by the numbers on the back of the box? Some websites say the first two editions have multiple misprints! Thank you for your time! Scott

    Du très bon boulot de la part de Yann et Clem. Je me suis procuré HEROES OF NORMANDIE il y a 2 semaines et j’ai déjà joué certains scénarios avec mon frère.
    La durée des premiers scénarios est excellente pour une partie d’initiation. Je pense que ce jeu peut divertir sans problème un vétéran du wargame comme une nouvelle recrue qui s’en va pour la première fois au front.
