Battlefront Features the Afrika Korps For Flames of War

I guess, if you play a game of Flames of War, you could have the British fighting against the British. To my knowledge, there’s nothing that says otherwise. But, really, people want to play the British versus the Nazis. And since we got a look at the Desert Rats book before, let’s take a look at the Afrika Korps book now.

Battlefront Features Desert Rats Book For Flames of War

The North African Front is sometimes neglected when it comes to the history of World War II. It was a long and dusty campaign of maneuver seeing the Desert Rats facing the Desert Fox. In this case, it was the rats that came out on top. The Desert Rats book from Battlefront gives you a good look at the forces involved, as well as how you can use them in your games of Flames of War.

Midweek Snippets

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me.

Battlefront Features Battle of El Alamein set For Flames of War 4th Edition

While most people might think of events like D-Day or the island-hopping of the Pacific theater, the battles that took place all across North Africa are no less an important part of the WWII narrative. It’s those dusty battles that Battlefront looks at in their Battle of El Alamein: War in the Desert set for Flames of War 4th edition.

Battlefront Features 4th Edition Flames of War Rulebook

From time to time, games need a bit of a makeover. Years of time and thousands of games can find issues that weren’t very apparent from the beginning. Or perhaps things just feel they’ve gotten “stale.” Whatever reason a game might end up getting a new edition, it usually causes a stir with the gaming populace. In this article, Battlefront gives us a look at the 4th Edition rulebook for Flames of War.

The week continues to just crawl on by. Man, I’ve not felt a week has taken this long for quite a while. I feel like I should be typing up the Friday Snippets instead of the Thursday Terrain Corner.

Midweek Snippets

The week rolls along (and I’ve got Ace of Spades playing), so you know I’m working at a pretty fevered tempo.

Battlefront Features East German Mot-Schützen Platoon For Team Yankee

You know, you want to have your troops well-armed to take on numerous potential adversaries. The East German Mot-Schützen platoons certainly are. From several different types of anti-tank weapons to numerous anti-infantry weapons, including grenade launchers, they can take on just about anything the West can throw at them.

Battlefront Features SA-9 Gaskin SAM Platoon For Team Yankee

In modern warfare (and it has actually been this way since about WWII), you have to make sure that enemy air power doesn’t hinder your ground forces too much. You can have your own planes try and neutralize them, but your aircraft can’t be everywhere at once. As such, having anti-aircraft elements in your forces is imperative. That can take the form of Surface-to-Air Missile launchers. And that’s just what we’ve got here for Team Yankee.

Midweek Snippets

Battlefront Features T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie for Team Yankee

During wartime, you will often see equipment get hasty upgrades, looking to make those particular items better than they were coming right off the line. In this case, several T-55 tanks were upgraded to have new fire control systems as well as extra armor against enemy anti-tank weapons. The result is the T-55AM2, which you can bring to the tables of Team Yankee. Check them out here.

Battlefront Features East German Mot-Schützen Heavy Weapons For Team Yankee

Infantry are very versatile out on the battlefield. They can go through most forms of terrain, search buildings, hold ground, and be armed with many different weapons in order to take on a variety of enemy formations.

Battlefront Features Spandrel AT Platoon For Team Yankee

Versatility is important in production. If you can create an item that can be quickly adapted to fill different roles, that’s good, as it will increase production speeds since you don’t have to keep retooling entire things from scratch. The 9P148 Konkurs uses the same chassis as the BRDM-2 Recon Vehicle. However, it sports a set of missiles on top.

This weekend is the first Board Game Day up at the Milton Library for the year. They took last November and December off, but they’re back once again.

Battlefront Features BRDM-2 Recon Platoon For Team Yankee

If you’re looking to scout enemy formations, having a vehicle that can get over a wide range of terrain is crucial. That’s just the case with the BRDM-2. Not only can it go across open ground easily, it has an extra set of wheels that it can lower in order to make it over trenches. A river or stream in your way? Well, just drive yourself right across it, since the BRDM-2 is aquatic.

Battlefront Gives the History of the Volksarmee For Team Yankee

At the end of WWII, Germany was divided. On one side, you had the French, British, and Americans. On the other, you had the Russians. All were allies during the war, but the differences between their political and economic systems caused them to quickly drift apart. The Iron Curtain came down all across Europe and that set the stage for the Cold War. In Team Yankee, that Cold War turns Hot. In this article, we get a look at the history of the East German forces, the Volksarmee.

Free Rulebook Trade-In Coming For Flames of War

Battlefront Previews Flames of War 4th Edition Releases

2016 may have been the Year of New Editions, but that doesn’t mean 2017 won’t have some of its own rolling out. One such includes the 4th edition of the very popular WWII game, Flames of War.

They’ve posted up some previews of the books and box sets you can expect to show up on store shelves.

Battlefront Announces Flames of War 4th Edition

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. In wartime, necessity is all around, and so invention and adaptation runs rife. While war games aren’t anywhere near like actually being in war, that doesn’t mean that things don’t change and evolve over time as well. It is with that in mind that Battlefront is announcing that they will be releasing a new edition of Flames of War next year.

Volksarmee Coming For Team Yankee, Pre-Orders Being Taken

The Volksarmee, or People’s Army, might just sound like a small group of volunteers who are really just accountants and bakers and janitors who wanted to go play Army. That is not the case, though. Within the Warsaw Pact, there’s no other army that’s more highly-trained and better equipped. And they’ll be making their way to the fields of Team Yankee tables next year.

Battlefront Features Iron Maiden: Spartan/Striker For Team Yankee

Getting your troops from place to place takes a lot of consideration. You want them to be able to get most places, get there fast, and be somewhat protected from enemy fire along the way. Thankfully, the British army in Team Yankee has the Spartan/Striker vehicles to do just the thing.
Continue reading

Battlefront Features Scorpion/Scimitar For Team Yankee

On the eastern plains of Europe, the British recce troops of the first and second were equipped with Scimitar reconnaissance vehicles. The third had a mix of Scimitars and Scorpions. Their job was to be a first-response group to any sort of Soviet movement. They’d scout ahead of the main British force, being on the lookout for any Soviet attacks. They’d also be the ones to go in when any sort of air-dropped troops were deployed. And they can do that on your Team Yankee boards, too.

It’s Monday and I’m back in the office after a long weekend.
Unfortunately, gaming plans fell through, but it was still a decent weekend. There’s always next week. Gotta get my S3 Guild Ball on at some point.

Battlefront Features Puma Panzerspäh Platoon For Flames of War

Sure, the Germans had their Tiger tanks, but they had plenty of other weapons of war at their disposal, especially late into the conflict. One of those vehicles was the Sd Kfz armored car. There were many different varieties of this vehicle, as the turret was easily modified to hold a different array of armaments.

Battlefront Announces Tiger I Tanks Marsch Edition

The German Tiger Tank was one of the most feared pieces of war on the battlefields of Europe during WWII. It was no small feat to actually defeat one in combat. Many allied tankers would just do their best to avoid conflicts with one. Well, Battlefront is letting you field groups of them in your Flames of War armies, and they’ve also made very limited numbers of Marsch Edition boxes with extra content.
