If there had been, I would have brought it. I have 2 other games in the series and really like the system.

Bob, convince me to get this.... I'm really hesitant because there's no Commonwealth, but the KS price is really tempting.

The only other pltoon level games I have are LnLP's White Star Rising and ancient PanzerBlitz.

Greetings friends,

We are so grateful! Normandy, the Beginning of the End and Alone in the Storm have been funded in only 4 hours. It´s such an achievement for a “grognard” game! But the journey has just begun. Stay tuned as we disclose the Stretch Goals we´ve been working on, most of them exclusive for backers. We also need your help to unlock all those Social Stretch Goals that are waiting for you!

Spread out the word, soldier!

To be honest, the one out of the series (so far) that I like the most is 'A las Barricades' which, obviously, is early Spanish Civil war. I really like the varied factions and, in some cases, improvised armour. Its very much an infantry game and I think the system is very well suited to that.

I've been on a fence with this one but it sure looks interesting. It's gorgeous, it's platoon scale, and it's in Normandy. So why not.  :dreamer:

What should I pledge to get the base game plus the XL map boards, is that possible there? TIA

Great news.

You have to pledge at game level ($46) but you have to change your contribution to $66. In such way you'll get the base game and the maps addon.

Thanks for your support!
