Here are some very early sneak peeks of artwork for Operation Dauntless, courtesy the talented Michael Evans. Assuming that Red Winter goes to print, Op Dauntless (which uses the same scale and rules) will probably be game number 2 in the series.

Operation Dauntless- The Battles For Fontenay and Rauray, France, June 1944 - will cover the actions of the British (and Scottish) 49th Infantry Division- nicknamed "The Butcher Bears" - at the far flank of the Caen sector and impending Operation Epsom.

Opposing these lads were elements of the 12th SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend" (Hitler Youth) and Panzer Lehr- elite panzergrenadier units.

Here are early playtest counters for German units of Panzer Lehr and 12th SS Panzer:



The final counters will have anti-tank and armor ratings at the top as well.

Here is a map detail of the current playtest map. The segment shown is near the Lehr setup area:



Again- this is all playtest art and may differ from final versions.

Games with dragons, spaceships, and bears aren’t wargames. Call them conquest games or strategy games or crap but they aren’t wargames.

On the map is there any functional difference in hexes F16, G16, H17 or I17? Looks good so far.

No difference. They are all "Field." These are mostly corn fields on gently rolling ground. This time of year (late June) the corn is roughly knee high to waist high. Field is the most open type of terrain in the game- you don't want to be caught out in it for long. It is, however, also the quickest way to move from point A to point B (other than roads).

Good I was worried it might effect LOS, which would have been messy.

The counters could use a bit more contrast.
