Well, Battlefront is looking to help communities get together for an evening of Flames of War fun with their Game Night Kits.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Well, during war, there's a lot of necessity to make better weapons than the opponents. It's sort of a life-or-death type of thing.

Battlefront Features Afrika Korps Rifle Platoon For Flames of War

All those tanks and armored vehicles running around in North Africa still required regular troopers to go along with them. Tanks might be formidable, but they can't do everything, and your average rifle-carrying soldier is still an invaluable part of the military effort. In this Flames of War article, Battlefront is featuring their Afrika Korps Rifle Platton.

Battlefront Features Panzer III Tank Platoon For Flames of War

The Panzer III is the quintessential German tank. Used in pretty much every theater during the war (at least where Germany was), it made up around 2/3 of their tank arsenal. What can you really say? It was able to get where it needed and had a decent gun on it. Now, you'll be able to fill your Flames of War armies with them.

Battlefront Features Crusader Armoured Troop For Flames of War

It's not just really thick armor that can make an armored vehicle safe. If your opponent can't get a bead on you due to your speed, that'll also help you stay live. That's the philosophy behind the Crusader. It was quick and able to stay ahead of the panzers looking to target it. They were used to help protect the flanks of bigger formations. Now, they can do the same for your games of Flames of War.

Battlefront Features Grant Armoured Troop For Flames of War

During the fighting in North Africa, the British needed a tank that could match up to the German's panzers. They found that in the form of the M3 Grant. Its gun and armor made it equal to its opponents in many ways. The one issue is that the tank was rather tall. So it was kind of hard to hide it. But still, they worked well. And a troop box of them will be making their way to your Flames of War tables.

Battlefront Features 17 pdr Anti-Tank Troop For Flames of War

The engagements in North Africa during WWII consisted of many different types of vehicles in the wide-open spaces of that desert land. With German panzer tanks around, it took a big gun to deal with them. That came in the form of the 17-pounder. Unfortunately, the original carriage couldn't quite handle them. The remedy? Simply stick the gun on a 25-pounder carriage. That should work.

Battlefront Features Honey Armored Troop For Flames of War

I don't know about you, but it seems that trying to use honey for armor wouldn't really work out too well, especially in the desert. I mean, it'd get hot and run all over everywhere. *gets a note on my desk* Oooh, Honey is just the name of the tank.
... That makes a lot more sense, then. Anyway, if you'd like a whole bunch of Honey tanks in one, Battlefront has the set for you.

Battlefront Features Afrika Korps: Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon For Flames of War

Having big, formidable tanks in your army was a good way to win battles during WWII. Some of the biggest and toughest were Germany's Tigers. They were originally going to be available for the Battle of El Alamein, but didn't quite make it there. They did end up in Tunisia later, though. They can also be in your armies for Flames of War, since they're available from Battlefront.

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.
