goo Today's GMT update says that Commands & Colors Medieval will start shipping shortly after May 10.

There is a shot of the components there, which I haven't been able to copy here; perhaps someone else can manage it. They look great!


The following copy is posted on the site by Richard Borg:


The medieval battles showcased in the scenario book focus on the historical confrontations between the Byzantine Empire and Sassanid Persians (530 to 627 AD) with a slight detour to battle the Moors and their rebel allies (645 - 648 AD). The Byzantine Empire during this period of medieval history was one of constant transition and reorganization. Its army tended to mirror its eastern adversaries by deploying an increasing number of armored cavalry formations (Cataphracts) and more missile troops. Yet, it was how the Byzantines adapted their battlefield tactics in relation to the enemy it faced that is perhaps the chief reason for the longevity of their Empire.


Tentative Scenarios

Utus River - 447 AD
Catalaunian Fields Roman Left - 451 AD
Catalaunian Fields Roman Right - 451 AD
First Thannuris - 528 AD
Dara - 530 AD
Satala - 530 AD
Callinicum Phase 1 - 531 AD
Callinicum Phase 2 - 531 AD
Ad Decimum Phase 1 - 531 AD
Ad Decimum Phase 2 - 531 AD
Ad Decimum Final Phase - 531 AD
Tricamarum - 533 AD
Lazic War: Petra Mountains - 548 AD
Lazic War: Phasis River - 549 AD
Lazic War: River Hippis - 550 AD
Lazic War: Onoguris - 555 AD
Solachon: Main Battle - 586 AD
Solachon: Kardarigan's Stand - 586 AD
And More…


Although the Byzantine army fought on other frontiers, against a multitude of opponents, Visigoths, Vandals, Ostrogoths, Franks, Alemanni, those conflicts are beyond the scope and space of this one package. Additional expansion modules that address those battles will be forthcoming.

The photo appears consistent with the list of components on the GMT website, though I do think there will be more than 14 scenarios.

Components

1 Medieval Core Rule Book and 14 medieval battle scenarios
1 Oversize Mounted Battlefield game board (11 hexes deep by 13 hexes wide)
4 Sheets containing 56 double-sided Terrain Tiles, Victory Banners & markers
60 Medieval Command cards (new card deck)
8 Battle dice
2 Reference Cards
5 Block and Dice Label sheets
320 Plus Blocks (blocks are similar in size to C&C Ancients)

cool And that's a higher count than C&C Ancients got in its Core Game (only 10 scenarios); perhaps a reflection of GMT's recent drive to make C&C a larger part of its output.

goo if you look at the original box cover illustration on its forum here, you'll see it says "10 Battles," as does the one in my closet. I believe 5 more were added later.

True, I thought I had preordered the base game but I didn't, what a shame...

So base game had originally 10, preorders got a first bonus pack of 3, and from 2nd edition onward the base game included those 3 plus 2 new ones, for a total of 15.

I haven't see anything on unit count, but we do know from the GMT website the following was intended:


Superior armor and status when battling


Cavalry units increase to 4 blocks


Heavy infantry battle dice are reduced from 5 dice down to 4


Light Bow Cavalry units can employ the Parthian Shot when they evade

Over in the other thread, a couple of people have now gotten shipping notices for next Wed. May 22 or Thurs.! Yay--19 new scenarios!

Meanwhile, I've just finished the 25 scenarios from the recent Red Alert: Space Fleet Warfare Kickstarter, and designed a scenario of my own, which you can see on that forum.

Meanwhile, Memoir 44 New Flight Plan (21 scenarios) should be shipping any time now.

That's a total of 65 new C&C scenarios in two months!

cool I'm in C&C Heaven.
