Firestorm: Red Thunder - Two Weeks Till World War III

It's great when companies give you new things to keep your game fresh. For Team Yankee, that's Firestorm: Red Thunder. It's the first part in what will be an ongoing campaign. Sign up with either the forces of NATO or the Warsaw Pact and vie for control of the plains of Europe.

From the announcement:

Firestorm: Red Thunder is the first installment in an on-going campaign for Team Yankee that sees NATO and Warsaw Pact players fighting out the opening days of the Battle for Germany in August 1985.

The Soviet and supporting Warsaw Pact forces launch a surprise offensive into Germany, seeking to push the NATO defenders back to and across the Rhine River. Meanwhile, the NATO forces attempt to stem the initial Soviet thrust and counterattack to regain lost ground and possibly liberate parts of East Germany.

Participate in the Global Campaign via the Beasts Of War website and join players from across the globe to see whether or not the Soviet juggernaut can be stopped by the NATO allies. A few lucky stores and clubs around the world will receive prizes for participating and entering their results into the Global Campaign tracker.

Firestorm: Red Thunder Campaign packs are available for purchase by stores or clubs from Battlefront Miniatures.

Firestorm: Red Thunder and World War III starts on the 12th of August so make sure your armies are ready, the fate of the world depends on it!
