For those Flames Of War enthusiasts who lack a dedicated gaming table or simply don’t have space for one, the Gaming Mat is the perfect solution. Within seconds it transforms the humble dining table into a full-sized (72” x 48” / 180cm x 120cm) Flames Of War battlefield.

Flames Of War Range Review

Flames Of War Range Review
with John-Paul

At the start of each year, we take the opportunity to review the entire Flames Of War range. The range is constantly growing, at the rate of around 240 codes per year, and needs constant management in order to present Flames Of War effectively in the limited space that stores have.

This year’s review is no different. Most of the changes will involve the retirement of box sets in favour of blister packs. This allows these miniatures to stay in the range while freeing up shelf space for faster-selling codes. Some codes have been retired permanently but, like in previous years, this is because newer versions are in the pipeline. This is why you won’t find any Mid-war desert codes at present; you will see the new replacement codes in the release schedule as the year unfolds.

~ John-Paul.
