- Fireball Forward Playtest Kit The basic infantry rules for the game that allow you to play the Easy Company scenario.
- Easy Company FBF7-28-11 – The first scenario which sees paratroopers for Easy company assaulting four Germans guns on D-Day. This action is depicted in episode 2 of ‘Band of Brothers.’
- playtest_counters-1 – Useful counters for infantry combat.
- QRC-1 – Charts, we’ve got charts! Download this file and you’ll have them too.
- pennants-1 – Flags used to mark activated units. Glue a golf tree to a base and wrap these around the tee securing with glue.
- allied_blinds-1 – Here are some blinds to use for hidden placement/movement if you do not want to have a referee. We have never used blinds before but it should work fine. Assign one blind per unit and give each side a couple of dummies. Move the blinds on the table and use normal spotting rules to reveal the blind. If an element in a blind does a fire action only that element is reveal not all the elements in the blind.
