About this project
Shadows over Normandie is a squad/platoon sized game based on the Heroes System. You don't need the Heroes of Normandie core box to play, but Shadows over Normandie is fully compatible with it.
The game features three opposing armies controlled by the players. These forces include the German Cult of the Black Sun, the ancient Deep Ones and the US Rangers. Each force is made up of infantry, tanks or creatures and of course, heroes and villains. Each unit has its own set of unique characteristics and skills depicted on the high quality chunky tokens.

Devil Pig Games are currently in development of this game for release Christmas 2014, but would like to extend the print run AND add in more content free of charge for backers of the original Heroes of Normandie Kickstarter who chose to receive this game.
Each turn is divided in three phases.
The first phase is about giving hidden orders to your units.
These numbered counters allow the players to choose in which order their units will act to surprise the enemy!
The second phase is all about the action.
Shadows over Normandie is not one of those old fashioned games where you sit, waiting for the other guy to finish his move and fire actions. In Shadows over Normandie, players activate units alternatively. This gives the game its heroic feeling. It's fun, fast and… bloody.
The third phase is the Reserve phase.
All units that were not given orders are allowed to move. No unit will be left untouched, although these units do not get to fire.
A few weeks after D-Day, a US Ranger Company, lost in Normandie, has to confront the terrifying power of the Nazis cult of the Black Sun. allied with an ancient Deep Ones tribe, they’re preparing a dark ceremony to summon the great Cthulhu. The Lost Battalion is the first chapter of a great campaign and you have to be a part of it!
The scenarios will tell you this story. They become increasingly difficult, and are designed as tutorials to teach you the game mechanics. Each brings a new tactical challenge. Objectives lead players to make tactical choices, some will be successful, others… well, they won’t.
Soldiers will fight, while heroes or vilains have specific tasks to fulfill. It’s a bridge between a wargame and an adventure game.

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter. The first one was a success but was challenged by dispatching and shipping issues.
We learned a lot from these troublles and since, we have increased our team and our network. The community is born and now grows every day.
How will this things impact this Kickstarter campaign ? We now have a bigger team so the production will be faster. We have contacts with good dispatchers who will handle the shipping carefully and we've improved the quality of packaging. We know that the dice have to be produced first and as soon as possible. We know better how the world and the universe are turning.
But, there's always chaotic things and shit might happen. Production, Shipping and Customs are still not 100% under control but we will do our best to stay within the schedule. You can see from the quality of the Heroes of Normandie box (just check out the reviews) that we're committed to bringing you high quality components and a really fun game!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Pointe du Hoc / Lighthouse pack, Devil Boy, Heroes and Gold, Axel
Between the previous campaign and now, the number of punchboard rises from 9 to 12. Moreover, we say Good bye! to the protection sleeve and Hello to a box. So, we had protection and contents, the price rises up. All of you that took the scenario packs during the previous campaign don't add anything.
The recommended retail price is 35£/45€/60$, so 105£/135€/180$ for the pack of three in stores. During this KickStarter campaign, you can buy it for 30£ per Scenario pack and if you take the 3 Scenario packs, you save 10£ , so 80£ for the 3 packs. Finally, you save 25£ relative to the recommended retail price ;)
A Core Box is needed, but nothing more. But, you can combine the Scenario packs to have historical paratroopers against each others ! You will find US historical paratroopers in Sainte-Mère-Eglise, german in Carentan and British in Pegasus Bridge ! Others historical regiment of paratroopers will be sale, but not for this KickStarter.
No. When the KickStarter campaign will finish, we will ask you for what you pledged. At this step, you must choose the correct shipping cost. We will verify it and return to you if their is a mistake ;)
Yes. You won't find it in stores.
What game (Heroes of Normandie / Shadows over Normandie) is for the Pointe du Hoc / Lighthouse pack ?
50% / 50 %. You can use the Pointe du Hoc to redo the historic battle, you just need a regiment or two of Rangers to attack the site. If you prefer surnatural, live a strange battle with a mysterious creature.
As you saw, this pack contain 4 terrain tiles (no bocages), a tall building with floors, boat, a Lightkeeper and a mysterious creature. And materials of course ;)
But also a Ranger Fieldcommand! With some units! 100% compatible with the previous rangers regiment (same color bands).
Around 95$, 65€, 55£. This should be the recommended retail price.
All the stuff is 100% compatible! But some are more directed to Heroes of Normandie or Shadows over Normandie.
Shadows over Normandie : Devil Boy, Cultists, Axel's Stretch Goal, Necromancer (next Stretch Goal after Axel's Stretch Goal).
Heroes of Normandie : Village People Set-1, Village People Set-2, Kelly's Heroes
Neutral : Guardian Chronicles
The 75£ pledge level is the first conception of the pledge to get the Shadows over Normandie box. After, we decided to reduce the price to 70£. So, you must take the 70£ pledge level and all of the people that take the 75£ pledge level must change their pledge amount. After the end of the campaign we can't do anything.
If you took Shadows over Normandie or Scenario packs during the previous KickStarter campaign, do you need to take again these ?
No, of course.
We don't want to compete stores! They sell our games and this should not be fair-play to sell those here.
Yes, and the reverse too.
Malheureusement non, le système des cellules de résistance ayant impliqué des coûts supplémentaires et des difficultés imprévues.
If you take some additional purchases and the Deep Ones level (1£ level), must you add 1£ to your pledge amount ?
Yes, an example is better ;)
If i take the Deep Ones pledge level (1£), the 3 Scenario packs (80£) and the Achtung Cthulhu pack (20£), my pledge amount is 101£.
I will have :
- Carentan Scenario pack
- Sainte-Mère-Eglise Scenario pack
- Pegasus Bridge Scenario pack
- Achtung Cthulhu! pack
But no Stretch Goals.
