Weekly “Spot the A7V” Twitter Game Weekly “Spot the A7V” Twitter Game
To mark the entry of Flames Of War into another new period, we are going to use Twitter to give away some Great War tank boxes. It will essentially be like a big game of Battleship.

Each week we will post a battlefield map, marked with grid co-ordinates, on the Great War landing page (http://www.flamesofwar.com/greatwar) You can’t see it, but hidden in one of the squares is a sneaky A7V.

This week's winner is @Arcticblur! We'll be in contact with you soon regarding how to claim your prize.

Perhaps the most iconic symbol of World War I is the trench.

Barbed Wire (BB132)
Barbed wire sections are a cheap and effective way to keep the enemy infantry from assaulting your own positions. Site your machine-guns over the wire so that you can inflict maximum damage on your opponent’s troops.
