What is it about tanks that is just so damn appealing? Let’s face it, a lot of us get weak in the knees over those multi-ton behemoths of the battlefield. Originally created to break the siege-like nature of the Western Front in WWI, they really came into their own during WWII. Dozens of types were created by the warring nations, each with upsides and downsides. Some were heavily armed and armored, but had the top speed of a brisk walk. Others were quick and maneuverable, but could be taken out by any upsized gun on the battlefield. Well, now Gale Force Nine is letting you find out which are best on the battlefield against one-another with Tanks.

The Panther vs. Sherman starter set will be released in April. This two-player starter (I love those, as you know) comes with everything you need, including rules, tokens, templates, terrain, dice, and starting forces in the form of two Shermans and one Panther. From there, individual tank expansions will be released. They’re much like the expansion packs you’d get for X-Wing, in that they’ll have a new tank, plus cards for equipment and crew, plus a unique Hero for that particular set.

    Will these be white metal, PVC or injection-moulded polystyrene?

      The rulebook clearly shows an injection molded plastic kit.
