A huge Heroes of Normandie game!

Hi soldiers,

The Aftermath Gaming club is located in Norwich, UK. It’s the official HoN gaming club in UK. And they deserve to be it!

They played the biggest HoN game since the beginning, but I let them speak about it and we thank them to share it with all of us!

Sunday the 3rd of July saw a huge game of Heroes of Normandie by Devil Pig Games played at the Aftermath Gaming Club. 40 boards were used, 3000 points for the Allied and 1500 points for the Axis.

The British objective, secure the beachhead and move in to secure the nearby town objectives. The British paras were given the task to capture and hold Pegasus bridge and then the nearby village.

The German objective, to hold onto the objectives and push the British back into the sea.

The game started at 3pm and finished at 9pm, this was the first game of this side played at the club and won’t be the last, an amazing game that we at Aftermath are huge fans of. It played fluently, was fast paced and we all got stuck in. We have a league and tournament being planned so keep an eye out on the club FB page.

18) The British red devils stall, having taken so many losses and getting to the other side their attempt was squashed by the Wehrmacht defender. They failed to take the bridge and the near by town.

    Yes, it was basically using a gigantic 4 player set up but instead on 1v1v1v1 it was 2v2v2v2 with a game marshall introducing events as the game went along, we did not know what the events were until they happened but the game marshall planned them in advance.

    The Scenario was based on sword Beach, roger sector and Pegasus bridge.

    @ daledavis: it’s an home-made scenarios made by the Aftermath gaming club. If you think to scenarios with more than 2 players, multiplayer rules are in the rulebook (last version). You can download it in our Download section, no need to synchronized.

    Could you post the rules you used to guide such a large scenario? I am particularly interested in how the number of order tiles and how many sets you used. Were the two battle areas synchronized?
