This is a custom card being designed for my Strike North Campaign Scenario which I will be GMing during the upcoming MaizeCon in Waterloo, IA happening in October 2018. There are plenty of card designs already out there by such esteemed individuals as Sharpe, Thor711 and ObstbfEgon. I'm using them as starting points for my own versions. Some have been left entirely intact and others I have modified to my own purposes.
Looking for feedback. What do you think? Is it balanced in terms of cost? Any concerns or questions?
Once I have enough comments / feedback giving approval I will produce the unit card and post it here.
Year available: 1940
Cost: 6 (updated)
Close Assault 6 - This unit has an attack value of 6 against vehicles in its’ hex. This attack ignores cover.
Mountaineering - This unit gets +1 on movement rolls.
Ski Capable - In your movement phase, this unit gets +1 speed if the first hex it enters is a snow hex. A successful movement roll is required. (SA reworded)
Disciplined - While this unit has cover it gets +1/+1 defense.
Nicknamed "The Blue Devils", these elite troops were some of the best trained and motivated soldiers in the French Army. (updated)
After comparing the point costs of the German Gebirgsjager and the French Chasseurs Alpins I decided to drop the cost of the French card. Both the German and French mountain troop card are just about exactly the same, so why should their point cost be any different?
