9 LnL Band of Heroes Halo-Less Maps
This package contains all the maps from Lock 'n Load Band of Heroes without the white halo around the hexes. Only the first edition game had the maps this way. So if you dislike the white halo effect on the map hexes then these maps are for you. There are a total of six maps included. Each map is has been broken into two parts to allow them to be printed off of a home printer.

6 Update of Bloody Crossroad scenario
This is a reformatting of Olivier Revenu (crabe tambour)'s intro scenario "Bloody Crossroad" (crossroad.pdf) into the Band of Heroes 2.0 look. Latest: Fixed a typo that had lived through from the first version, changed the presentation of St Mere Eglise so it matches the way the base game scenarios spell it (though I couldn't help myself and added a missing diacritical mark), and added a line of text about victory conditions (I presume it matches the intent).

12 LnL Ordnance Cards
As a big fan of both ATS and Panzer, I thought it would be helpful to create individual ordnance cards for the vehicles, guns and SWs for LnL BoH (and expansions). Although there are several awesome reference sheets included here on BGG, I prefer to limit the number of full sheets of paper that need to be referenced. These cards were designed to be printed on Avery Ink Jet Business Card (#8376) stock. Enjoy! :-)
