Here is a sneak peek of sample counters for JUTLAND: FLEET ADMIRAL II. This is the plan view for select German counters, Kaiser class and Koenig class.
Note we will also be providing side profile views of all ships as well, as picture below.
We do have several active projects in the works that we haven't spotlighted here yet...mainly because they are not available for preorder. However, to give you an idea of one of these projects, we are looking forward to a playtest session of Beneath the Southern Cross, a William Cooper design.
Beneath the Southern Cross is a study of the Solomons Campaign from August 1942 through January 1943. The game includes Battle Scenarios covering each of the naval encounters during the campaign. In addition, Operational Scenarios expand each side's strategic options. A campaign scenario covering the initial landings through the decision to evacuate provides a look at the full sweep of events in the South Pacific.
Inspired by Flat Top, the system focuses on conducting operations in an Air/Sea/Land environment. Each Operational Turn of 6 hours includes six Air Impulses and two Naval Impulses. Air Formations and Task Forces search for each other, and strikes are launched on incomplete target information.
Air strike combat resolves quickly and ranges from devastating attacks to complete misses. A set of tactical rules inspired by Jutland provides a 'miniatures-like' feel for ship-to-ship combat.
Below is a Counter Guide that has been prepared in support of our upcoming playtest session @ CSW Expo.
We've made some serious progress on HELLFIRE PASS. Pictured below is a playtest session currently underway by Todd Davis. We'll be playtesting this game also at CSW Expo 2015 which is only a few weeks away. We are very excited about this Frank Chadwick design and follow-up release to the BEDA FOMM game system!
Here is a sneak peek of one of the new components we are adding to SILENT VICTORY -- based on customer feedback from THE HUNTERS. There was an overwhelming request to add Patrol Maps to enhance the overall game experience (rather than using the box tracks on the sub displays). So we came up with 3 new patrol maps for SILENT VICTORY. Pictured below is one of the patrol maps for Australia -- for the Fremantle sub base. Thanks to Ian Wedge for creating these for us.
Update: The Beda Fomm product page is back online.
We want to apologize as we have discovered that our BEDA FOMM product page (long out of print) and our ASK A RULES QUESTION support page are no longer present on this site (either deleted by accident or a system error). We will do our best to rebuilt both these pages and we are scanning the rest of the site to ensure everything else is working as expected.
We've uploaded the two counter sheets for BEAR'S CLAW to our Image Gallery section. We've enlarged the original 1/2" game counters to 9/16" size to enhance the quality of the components and ease game play for those with aging eyes like myself (to accompany the enlarged game maps!). Here is a sample below of Counter Sheet #1 Front -- check them all out in our Image Gallery (scroll to bottom to see all 4 images).
