Welcome to the Flames Of War and Battlefront Miniatures website, the home of World War II Gaming.
Last Updated On Friday, 21 November 2014.

This week's update includes twelve different articles and links for you to enjoy.

We are very pleased to have reached the final hurdle in the completion of our new digital Flames of War app and the Forces of War army organiser meaning that both will go live very soon. We have added two new articles this week showing in more detail how they will look and feel. Both the app and Forces of War will have some free content for you to try before you buy so you can get a feel for how digital books and the force organiser work.  These have been a long time coming but now they are ready to share we know you will enjoy them as they represent a step ahead for how Flames of Wars books and companies will be used in the future.

Panzer III G/H (GE031)
The Panzer III Ausf G/H followed the same development trend of other Panzers with the steady increase in armour levels. Lessions learnt during the invasion of Poland and France accelerated the introduction of the 5cm cannon, giving the tank a significant increase in hitting power.

Panzer III J (GE033)

Panzer III J (GE033)
Intended for use against other tanks the Panzer III Ausf J benefited from the continuous improvement process that the German army adopted. The increased armour protection over its predecessors allowed it to defeat the armament of the lighter Soviet tanks.
