Need A Stocking Filler?
Dice, Tokens, Templates and Objectives On Sale!
Over the years our range of tokens, dice and objective markers has grown as we have done more and more unit specific sets. At the time of these releases we considered them part of our ongoing range but as the number of codes has grown and keeping the entire line in stock has become too complicated for most stores we have decided to change our plan going forward.

For the month of December from the 1st to the 31st we are running a Stocking Filler promotion. We are offering the codes we have listed in the On Sale tab at 50% off retail from today through to the end of the month. When the promotion is over these codes will be removed from sale permanently.

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 last 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 War books and companies will be used in the future.

Fate Of A Nation Design Notes Fate Of A Nation Design Notes
The fate of a nation hangs in the balance. Israel cannot lose even a single battle. One defeat would mean the destruction of the tiny Jewish state. Not waiting to be attacked by the Arab forces massing on its borders, Israel strikes first.

Hundreds of tanks sweep across the borders, punching deep into the enemy defences, seeking out the enemy tanks. The infantry follow behind, assaulting the fortifications, clearing the way for the advance to continue.

A bare six days later, the war was over. A thousand tanks lay strewn across the desert. Tens of thousands of soldiers lay dead and wounded. Israel had survived, but the Arabs vowed that there would be no peace with Israel.
