Update – Heroes of Normandie shipments

We know several of you have been waiting for an update regarding the upcoming Heroes of Normandie expansions and Shadows over Normandie base game. Well, you’re in luck, we finally have some news!

The three upcoming expansions to Heroes of Normandie are currently on a boat on their way to the USA. CarentanSainte-Mere Eglise, and the Battleground Set will be sent out to Shadows over Normandie backers as soon as they are received in our California office, with a retail release sometime after that. Note: backers will receive these expansions first (beginning of August), before the retail release (end of August).

Shadows over Normandie, Pegasus, Civilians, and everything else will be sent in a second wave. They are being sent to the printer within two weeks, so you should have the finished product around the end of September. All of the KS exclusive material will be included in this second wave. The retail release for the non-KS exclusive items is expected to be in September for the HON expansions (Civilians & Pegasus), and November for SON.

About Heroes of Normandie

Heroes of Normandie is a new, fast-paced WWII strategy wargame inspired by Hollywood war movies. This is a tactical scale board-game for 2 players, each commanding their own armies – the Germans on one side, the Americans on the other. Players deploy their units, secretly plan their attacks and try to outwit their enemies by blocking their strategies and surprising them. One thing’s for sure: there’s no turning back!

Heroes of Normandie Organized Play!

If you’ve ever played a game, you know it’s more fun with other people. That’s why hobby stores are so great. They bring people together who love games and connect them so they can play games together! That’s what Organized Play is all about. Over the last year, we have had a ton of requests to offer Organized Play for one of our most popular and extensive games, Heroes of Normandieheroes-of-normandie-d-day-200x200

The design studio for Heroes of Normandie, Devil Pig Games, has created a massive amount of great content that players can use to keep the game fresh and challenging every time they play. We’ve been working with them closely to develop a program that stores can use for larger groups to connect players who are passionate about Heroes of Normandie every week.

Whether you just want to learn how to play or you’ve already constructed a 500 point army tuned for tournaments, Organized Play will help you meet other fans and make sure you get a game in every week.

If you’re a Heroes of Normandie enthusiast, make sure you check out our store locator and encourage your local store to sign up for this new program.

If you’re a hobby store and you love supporting your community, check out our Organized Play page for everything you need to sign up and get started.

As always, if you have any questions, make sure to send them to organizedplay@iellogames.com
