According to Herm, this game is based “on ‘In Magnificent Style,’ so each counter is abstracted a bit as to actual size. Each of the three companies – Dog, Easy and Fox – has four counters/columns. There were 225 men used in the historical assault, so that comes out roughly to 20 men per counter. The strength of “8” is the maximum Strength Factor of a Ranger counter and that number is simply the number that playtested best as the starting game strength for each counter. The actual number of figures is irrelevant but the number depicted will decrease proportionally as the unit’s factor decreases.
The game is entitled “Crowbar! The Rangers at Pointe du Hoc” and will hit Kickstarter through Flying Pig Games in the near future.”
