    Description

    Firestorm Campaign – Overlord

    This campaign is designed to be flowing where the Generals take command from Round 1 and through the supply and reinforcement build-up, make strategic decisions around capturing key ground, denying enemy exploitation routes or attempting sweeping flank attacks. A deliberate inclusion in this game is the full use of Warriors as additional firestorm units; both Allied and German. They can often be the key to an unlikely victory!

    Generals have much to ponder, they have to:
    • Consider how to manage build-up of Allied reinforcements given finite supply availability and congestion around beaches
    • Placement of Mulberry Harbours
    • Impact of channel storms experienced in Round 3
    • Interdiction of German supply routes
    • Exploitation
    • And much more…
    The campaign has two distinct phases:
    • Phase 1. D-Day 6 June. Played as a series of ‘Hit the Beach’ and ‘Seize and Hold’ missions. These are described in the handbook and should be adapted to suit local situations. There are two options for the impact of these games on the main tournament or second phase.
    • Phase 2. Main Tournament. Designed to be played over five rounds and each round comprises a week culminating in the fifth week post invasion from 7 June to 15 July.
    The handbook contains all the special rules developed for this game including:
    • Firestorm reinforcement for both sides
    • Weather effects
    • German scattered defenders
    • Game flow
    • Game charts
    • Terrain effects
    • Town and area defences
    • Suggested tournament player packs
