New scenario in Normandy place Wed, 28 October 2009 20:01
Hello everybody,

I'm Philoo, I propose you to test the scenario I made. I'm interested in opinions and critics about it, at least for the translation of the text that explains it.

Have fun.

Thank you. Smile

Greetings, Philoo--

It looks like this should be challenging for the Allies. I'm surprised to see that they have won in three of the five AARs. Very interesting.

Quote:

Civilians : if a fight occurs against a unit placed in a hex with civilians (green star token) and an attack dice rolls a star, the civilian token is removed from the board.

So are you saying that those hexes are temporary medal objectives, but if either side occupies the hex and the other side attacks it, rolling a star will stop it from being a medal objective?

Can the Germans attack the hex even if no Allied unit is there?

Quote:

"Sortie Axe" hexagons : apply the "Exit" rule only to wounded German units, that have less than 4 figs in. Sniper unit can't flee.

Does this mean that the Germans can exit as many wounded units as they want? Do they get a medal? Or are they just happy to escape?

Greetings Sam,

Thank you to take some time to analyse this scenario.

First question :

Civilians, as they are still alive, are temporary medal objectives for Allies. During a fight against a unit in the hex with a green star, a STAR roll dice means civilians are killed. Consequently there is no more temporary medal objective.

German can't attack the hexes occupied by a green star. They can go in like another urban hex.


Second question :

Good question. If a German unit can leave the board by one of these exits, German player earns a victory point.
I'll rewrite this part of the text, even in the French version.

Thanks again.

Thank you, Philoo.

I've played it three times now, and every time was an exciting battle. I believe in supporting Scenarios From the Front, and this one, Easy Company Enters in Carentan, earned 3 stars from me.

If this is only your first scenario, I look forward to seeing more.

I was playing this scenario again today, and an interesting question came up.

If the Germans have a 1-figure unit on the exit hex and the Allies roll a flag against it, does the German unit exit through the exit hex, or does the flag count as a hit? (My opponent and I agreed that we would play it as a hit.)

I still say this is a great scenario, Philoo!

I think I remember that this question have come up another time. I don't remember which sceanrio It talked about but a unit has to exit by it's OWN order.It can't retreat of the board.
So a retreat from the exit hex would be a hit.

Saw a couple of episodes of "Band of Brothers" yesterday with Easy Company, so this must be tried.
Has anyone found all the battles with Easy Company here or do I have to 'dig' myself?

Found these so far:
06/06/1944 Brecourt Manor - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1376
06/06/1944 E-Company at Brécourt Manor (D-Day) - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4323
06/06/1944 Brecourt Manor (D-Day) - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1731
06/06/1944 Assault de Brécourt Manor - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=2963

06/12/1944 Easy Company enters Carentan - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=5815

01/05/1945 The Breaking Point - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=64

01/15/1945 La Presa Di Noville - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4500

Are there more battles with Easy Company? Only four battles doesn't seem so much.
And which do you prefer of the four Brecourt Manor battles?
