Module Information

Maintainer Trent Garner


Heroes of North Africa features fluid, impulse-based turns, squad-level and individual heroics, plus lots of armor and unique rules to bring desert combat to life. Italians, including paratroopers from the rugged Folgore Division, and Germans from Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps take on the resolute British Eighth Army. The Free French and Americans also get into the action. The battles start in 1940, with a few in East Africa, and Sidi Barrani, Egypt, and continue up to El Alamein and the American's first taste of combat during Operation Torch, in November of 1942.

Find some goggles; the dust and sand of the harsh, unforgiving desert is going to fly!

NEW Desert Raiders extension 1.0

Unofficial fan-made extension to HoNA gives you counters, markers, skills and more to relive the exploits of the Long Range Desert Group, Special Air Service, and other special raiding forces that operated behind Axis lines in North Africa. Includes other cool and useful components like parked destroyable aircraft, random-draw raid objective markers like barracks or supply dumps, historical leaders, sappers, German motorcycle units, supply trucks, secret agent SMC, sentries, Italian AutoSaharan vehicles, a Free French turreted armored car, and even terrain tiles for colonial-style desert forts. [Note: This extension does not alter your original HoNA module in any way; just add the extension when you want to use it, and remove it easily from the module within your VASSAL menu if you want to return to the "vanilla" look of HoNA.]
