Meramic Announces New Face of Battle WWII Scenario Book
Ottawa, ON - Meramic is pleased to announce the release of Act With Daring, The
Invasion of France 1940 WWII Skirmish Scenario book.
Act With Daring skirmish scenario book is the first WWII scenario book
of the Origins award nominated The Face of Battle historical
miniatures rules system. Act With Daring covers the fierce battles and
eventual collapse of the French Ninth Army during the opening days of
the Blitzkrieg. The battles of France 1940 were an excellent mix of
troops, nationalities, vehicles and equipment. From the intrepid
horsed Spahi, to the massive B1 Bis tank, German and Belgium
Engineers, regular to elite French forces. This all combines for fun
and exciting skirmish miniatures play.
Act With Daring includes ten scenarios linked by three campaigns and
one grand campaign. Players recreate small skirmish conflicts,
armoured clashes and mixed infantry and vehicle battles. Play the
heroic defense of La Horgne or De Gaulle's famous counter-attack at
Montcornet. Additional scenarios deal with the intense fighting in the
Ardennes forest, the daring river crossings at Monthermé and the final
destruction of the Ninth Army. German forces will encounter French
senior command units as headquarters and outposts are overrun.
Optional forces allow for maximum replayability.
This 104 page book also includes a combat diary that details the day
by day advance, attacks, and maneuvers of the German and French
forces. Background information, tactical maps, force descriptions, and
tables of organization for the Ninth Army and Sixth Panzer Division
all enhance play and unit motives.
Act With Daring scenarios are usable with many gaming systems: Arc of
Fire, Battleground WWII, Crossfire, Battalions in Crisis, Cross of
Iron, Disposable Heroes and more.
