WWII


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.

While the Korean peninsula has been taking up much of Warlord Games' releases these days, that doesn't mean that they're not working on other, older games as well. For example, they also have a new kit for Blood Red Skies as well as Cruel Seas that you can order over in their webshop now. If you're looking for some sea or sky action for your WWII games, this is up your alley.

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.

No more simply walking into battle for your soldiers. There's some new vehicles available to pre-order for Bolt Action over in the Warlord Games webshop. You've got yourself the M46 Patton Heavy Tank as well as the DUKW Amphibious Truck. So, granted, one's a tank and one's a water transport, but they're still meaning your troops aren't just putting one foot in front of the other in order to get to the enemy.

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.

Firmly entrenched in WWII are the posts from Warlord Games today. They're talking about the IJN No. 1-Class Fast Transport T6 for the Japanese Navy over in Cruel Seas. Then, for Bolt Action, they've got a couple sets of Hungarian Anti-Tank kits for you. On the land or on the sea, there's something for you to check out. Let's have a look.

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.

The Korean War supplement for Bolt Action is Warlord Games' latest rules release. If you're looking to add some new figures to your collection, now's a good time. And since many people's knowledge of the Korean War is based on M.A.S.H., the TV show, you might recognize some of the figures.

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.

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.

Definitely a couple of different eras on display here today from Warlord Games. There's some new Cruel Seas figures, letting you up-gun your fleets a bit. Then there's some Hail Caesar figures, the Achaeans, for whom, slings and javelins were pretty far ahead in the technology department, along with the early Libyan chariot figure. Let's take a closer look.

Happy Friday, everyone. Glad you could join us. Got any plans for the weekend? I've rapidly been realizing that next week will be a short one for us here in the US, as many of us will have at least Thursday off, and quite possibly taking Friday off as well. So, that's something to look forward to. But before we go have a BBQ cook out, let's nibble on some bite-sized gaming stories to get us there.

Today on the platter we have: WWII German Officer Available From Brother Vinni and Healer's Dice Up On Kickstarter.

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.

"How much do I owe you for the ice cream?"
"Nothing! It's free!"
"FREE!?!?"
*Russian anthem plays*
Ok, that aside, it's time to add to your Soviet air force with a pair of new sets you can pre-order from Warlord Games for Blood Red Skies. Let's take a look.

The Japanese air force is making its way to the scene in Blood Red Skies. Warlord Games has a new Imperial Japanese Expansion Pack, as well as a pair of squadrons, available for the game. There's also a pair of Konflikt '47 releases, for those that like their WWII with a bit of Weird thrown in.

Warlord Games has a new game on the horizon. It's SPQR, a new set of rules for fighting with warbands in ancient times. They have started taking pre-orders for the rulebook, as well as a new 2-player starter set.
Also thrown into the mix today is a new piece for the Germans in Bolt Action. Because you can never have enough Bolt Action when it comes to Warlord Games.

While it's still Friday here in the States, in New Zealand, it's the weekend. And that means it's Live Launch Weekend already for Battlefront's Late War in Flames of War. They've got all manner of cool special events going on, as well as having a whole mess of new kits available, including their new 2-player starter and single-person faction starter sets. If you're a Flames of War player, you're not going to want to miss this.

There's a new landing craft and Amphibious Assault Rules available from Warlord Games... though they're for two different games. Yeah, odd coincidence, but here we are. The new landing craft is for Cruel Seas and will be out later this month, while the Amphibious rules are for Bolt Action and you can get those now. They're still worth checking out, though.

Warlord Games is coming at you with some more Bolt Action releases. They've got US and British Airborne figures, pre-orders for their upcoming D-Day book, a Luftwaffe artillery piece, and more (including one of the most famous British generals, Moooooonty!). Let's take a look.

Flames of War is getting ever-closer to their Late War releases, and Battlefront just can't contain their excitment anymore. They've posted up some previews of what you can expect from these new releases, including a brand-new 2-player starter set called Hit the Beach, and Fury, a tank battles book.
