Combat Commander Series in C3i Nr22:
• New Scenarios:
C3i Nr22 includes two new “Combat Commander Europe” scenarios – Scenario 108 “In My Time of Dying” Strongpoint Hillman, France, 6 June 1944 designed by Dan Holte; and Scenario 109 “Escape Is Everything!” Hill 262, The Falaise Pocket, France, 19 August 1944 designed by John A Foley.
• New Campaign:
In addition, “Pathfinder: A Combat Commander Campaign” by Volko Ruhnke. Linking the seven “Combat Commander” scenarios featuring airborne units in action during the OVERLORD operations in the Cotentin Peninsula, June 6-10, 1944.
• New Player Aid:
Also, a complete Counter Manifest for “Combat Commander: Pacific” –which includes full stats for all the units and weapons by game designer Chad Jensen.
Commands & Colors: Ancients Series in C3i Nr22:
Fans of “Commands & Colors: Ancients” (CC:A) will be treated to two new Official Scenarios by Richard Borg and Dan Fournie:
The Island War:The Battles of Caralis & Himeras River Revisited. Following Hannibal’s spectacular victory at Cannae in 216 BC, Carthage sought to spread the war to other theaters and overtax Roman resources. A treaty was reached with Macedon in the east, but the main effort was launched against Carthage’s former island possessions – Sardinia and Sicily. This war of the islands threatened to strip Rome of the resources and revenue of two key provinces just as the Second Punic War was reaching its climax.
In issue Nr 9 of C3i Magazine an article appeared on the campaign for Sardinia featuring the Battle of Caralis, 215 BC, as a scenario for SPQR. More recently, in issue Nr 17 of C3i, an article on the Sicilian campaign was featured, including the Battle of Himeras River, 211 BC, as another scenario for both SPQR and Simple GBoH. With the advent of Commands and Colors: Ancients (CC:A) we have repackaged these two battles for play in an entirely different system. CC:A is more abstract, simpler, faster to play and most importantly, extremely fun.
Agincourt Battle Module for Men of Iron in C3i Nr22:
One of the most famous battles of the Hundred Years’ War, this C3i “Agincourt” Module shows the English system of longbows, dismounted men at arms and strong defensive positions easily defeating a much larger, but thoroughly disorganized, French army. Special historical rules recreate the situation on St. Crispin’s Day of 1415. However, they also tilt the balance of the game heavily in favor of the English, and can be dispensed with for competitive play.
The counters for the module feature all new icons by Mike Lemick. And, to better show off this new soldier artwork, the counters will be the large 5/8” size rather than the 1/2″ of the original game. Plus, the C3i “Agincourt” Module has an elegant, full-color map design by Mark Simonitch.
NOTE: You will need the “Men of Iron” game to play the C3i “Agincourt” Module.
Great Battles of History Series in C3i Nr22:
• A new SPQR Battle Scenario “Scipio Assinus and The Battle of Utica: The Greatest Battle Scipio (N)ever Fought” by Dan Fournie. Publius Cornelius Scipio Asinus (the Younger) and Hasdrubal, son of Gisgo, engaged in a great battle at Utica in the spring of 203, BC. At stake was nothing less than world dominion.
