Not enough Germans? Fri, 07 June 2013 23:49
Unless I've lost some German infantry figures there are too many German infantry units in this Overlord scenario for two base games. I count 22 full strength German Infantry plus 3 Sniper units in the scenario.

Can you help JDrommel?

22 x 4 = 88 figs + 3 snipers = 91 figs.
If you use the Equipment Pack figs to cover the SNIPERS,
And substitute 1 fig in the seven MORTAR, MACHINE GUN and ANTI-TANK GUN units you will only need 81 infantry figs and there are 84 figures in two sets of the game. So with the EP you are covered.

I guessed that would be the case - thanks Stevens.

Hello AP,

In fact, in this scenario I use 2 base games and the expansion "Operation Overlord" with some infantry tokens in place of figures. During the game I change the tokens with figures of the dead pile.
You can use other ways like Russian figures to symbolise Ost Battalions or 1/72 plastic figures for German units (mortars, machine-guns, snipers, etc.)

I hope you find the best way to play it.

Yours, Smile
Jdrommel.

Merci Jaques!

I did use other models for the infantry units on the base line and replaced them with casualties as you suggested. It did not affect the game or my enjoyment of it. A fine scenario to mark the D-Day anniversary!
