Flames of War


Some day, I'd love to go skydiving. Now, I have an often-crippling fear of heights. And yet, jumping out of a plane is on my bucket list. I have a feeling that it'd help with my fear of heights. Granted, I wouldn't have anyone shooting at me. Airborne troops in WWII didn't have that luxury. Soon, you'll be able to add these brave soldiers to your Flames of War forces, as Battlefront is taking pre-orders for new sets now.

I'm sure when the Allies hit the Normandy beach during D-Day, they thought that the waves of German troops would never end. And that's how it feels with these posts. We've got yet more German forces that you can add to your Flames of War armies.

The Germans are lining the beaches, looking across the English Channel, waiting for the Allies to make a play at taking their control away from mainland Europe. They're well equipped, with all manner of different weapons ready for action. This week's set of releases for Flames of War from Battlefront includes some anti-armor elements.

Discuss

The Germans had a whole army's worth of men and material to defend against the Allied invasions at Normandy. Battlefront has yet more for your Flames of War games. Armored vehicles, artillery, and more to defend German holdings.

While the Normandy invasion, known as D-Day, obviously took place in a very specific part of the world, the ramifications of it spread out to all corners of the globe. Soon, all the world will be recreating it as Battlefront launches their D-Day Global Campaign for Flames of War at the end of October. Read on to find out about this new campaign event.

The German war machine was churning out gear at a very high rate before the Allies invaded Normandy. Different weapons of war, as well as different specialized units were stationed all along the coast, making sure that nothing could get in. For your Flames of War games, Battlefront is helping bolster Fortress Europe with some more German releases.

Discuss

The Germans had quite the production capabilities during WWII. They were able to churn out large amounts of vehicles, materials, and soldiers to continue their conquest of Europe (and the world!). When the Allies hit Normandy Beach, the Germans had quite a defense set up. Battlefront is bringing more of these D-Day Germans to your Flames of War tabletops, including a new Nebelwerfer, because you can't have a war without some werfed nebels.

For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

Discuss

The German forces had a long time to reinforce the coast of Europe during their occupation. They knew that, eventually, the Allies were bound to attempt a landing. When it finally came, they were as ready as possible. To represent that on your Flames of War tabletops, Battlefront has some new D-Day Germans that you can order from them now.

When Battlefront has some big release, they don't just send out the skus to the stores and let things go on by. No, they celebrate. And with the release of the D-Day Germans for Flames of War coming up in just over a week, they want to make sure you know you're invited to their Live Launch. All that weekend, they'll have special things going on over at their website for you to check out.

No battle during WWII was fought in a vacuum (... I mean, of course not literally because it didn't happen in outer space. But also, none were fought without the larger context fo the war). Each had their own place in an overall campaign for the various warring factions. With Bloody Omaha, the first of the Ace Campaigns coming from Battlefront for Flames of War, you too can set your battles in a larger context in terms of a campaign. In this article, Battlefront gives us a look at what this new system of campaigns is like.

Battlefront has been releasing a lot of American figures for the landings at Normandy. But, as anyone will tell you, they didn't just have a casual stroll up the beach. They were met by heavy resistance from the German forces. Soon, you'll be able to bring those forces to your Flames of War tabletops. Battlefront has started taking pre-orders for new kits featuring the D-Day Germans.

When the Allies hit the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, they didn't just come as a trickle, they knew that to succeed, they had to come in as a tidal wave and be relentless in their assault. That's what Battlefront is doing with their Americans releases. They've got some more available over in their webshop to bulk up your Flames of War armies.

Omaha Beach. It was quite a day back when the Allies invaded Normandy and started to reconquer Europe from the Germans. Soon, you'll be able to recapture that time on your tabletops in Flames of War with the Bloody Omaha Ace campaign. They've posted up a preview so you can see just what is up ahead on the beach.

Discuss

Another round of Late-War Americans are hitting the beach as part of Battlefront's Flames of War D-Day Offensive. There's some pretty iconic units in this bunch of releases, including the M4 Sherman as well as the M7 Priest. You can head over to their webshop and add these units to your armies now.

The Normandy invasion not only changed the course of WWII, but the course of world history. But if you in charge of the various forces, would you have done things differently? That's for you to decide in Flames of War. Battlefront is featuring that momentous day with their recent releases, and they're adding to it with some new American sets available now.

Wednesday already? That's not a complaint, mind you. Always happy when a week goes by quickly. It usually means I've been busy. It also means it's closer to the weekend.

D-Day. It's one of the most important days in human history. The Allies storm Normandy beach to start the liberation of Europe from the Axis. Battlefront is focusing on that particular day with a new wave of releases for Flames of War. They're currently taking pre-orders for some of the American forces that partook in that assault.
