thx 😀


atm im busy with another project, but once this is finished ill start working on the next heroes fan/custom addon


question would be something for the eastern front? or something different?


May be Italians or a collection of minor factions of allies and axis troops? To be honest, I'm just checking what exists in ASL and not yet in Heroes 🙂


Or some North Africa theatre … there is some already in SoN but more is better

I think that the italians are underrepresented in WW2 games. And besides the tactical and historical aspect of that, there's also some italian way in movies of that time or theme.


La Grande Guerra for example, although is about the WW1, is a war comedy aligned with the HoN movies flavor. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052861/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0


Mediterráneo is another example https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102426/


Also the italians could be usefull for scenarios involving anti fascists partisans, using the Civilians under fire counters, or designing some new…


hope know of it.


cheers

Another suggestion… maybe more Stalingrad related: Finland Winter War

Hello again,

i was a bit silent recently, but now i guess im ready to show you what i was working on.

Welcome to the Pacific Theater and the Heroic Battle of Iwo Jima!


Wow… May you tell me how you did to create a brand new set from scratch, with also the same refined icons/artwork of the core game?!?

You are welcome about adding the italian army (hopefully without racistical artworks or stupid characters like super Mario or such). I am italian and I' d like to have the chance to buy a North African theater boxed expansion set which has to include italian paratroopers of the Folgore, the mythical Rommel and his troops of tanks, the Ranke paratroopers, the italian meharists, the british and Montgomery along with some Anzac and Indian troops that fought in north Africa. I'd like also to have some new desert rats/long range recons for the british army: today you have to buy the Desert Wrath SoN expansion, if you want to add them to the collection, and I dislike this. I also would like to see "a blister or two" expansion which should be like the Level Up blisters, but instead of skills to add, it should have into it the light blue colored tokens representing weapons and Items that can be used by the characters with the level up recruiting tiles itself added to them… Like the bazooka, the sten gun, the flamethrower and the Luger pistol or such…

Personally, I think the Pacific would be a great next front to cover. Although I will admit it would be a bit difficult not to overlap with Bloody Omaha for late war, during the island campaigns, but the original battle for the Philippines would make a great boxed set.

i guess this would be too much to post here XD

but you can send me a pm.


but everything started with a rework of a original commander tile i modified to fit with the new factions. and ofc (or at least this was a goal for me) to add new strategy depth / new mechanics like i did it with the battleships


i think i will have time to work on the next one in 1-2 month.


but im still not 100% sure what i should create.

Eastern Front "Addon" for Axis and Soviets (soviets will get their heavy IS2 and maybe Katyushas)

or

Africa (2 commanders and one high command for each side) + Africa Balltemap


what do you guys prefer?


Btw, anyone already printed something from iwo jima?


@Alan Hume

i just checked the first page and it sill works for me

The IS2 is a bit "late" for Stalingrad, assuming you mean the IS-2 Model 1943, which did not start showing up in numbers until February 1944 (from what I have seen anyway).

If you mean the version with the D-25T, That was second half 1944 so even later.


I wonder if the really slow rate of fire is enough to warrant modeling at the scale of HSTS games.

Hi! I love this Iwo Jima expansion. I printed the stuff to glue it on cardboard, but the images resolution are a bit low. It is possible to download the images at full print resolution? (the ideal res. would be 300dpi).


Thank you very much! I really like the mounted japanese general (as Clint's movie). The Map-Board of the island is awesome! congrats!

It all sounds great, (and I like the other guys idea about the mounted Japanese General) Hungarians and Romanians (and Italians) would be good too though


Oh, I still can't see the photos no idea why, maybe it's my computer settings or something, dunno


[FAN] Heroes of IwoJima (Custom Expansion) Posted on [16/07/2021] à 21:05

My vote is Africa theatre.


To answer your other question: i'm experimenting to print/glue/cut counters at the moment, IwoJima is the testcase 🙂
