Open Fire!

A jeep drives slowly down a deserted road, the crew scanning the village ahead. Without warning the distinctive rippingcanvas sound of a German machine-gun tears the silence, bullets whizzing past as the driver throws the jeep into reverse.

The Captain watching the unfolding drama speaks into his throat mike. ‘OK John, they’re there. Clear ‘em out. Over’ The rearguard is no surprise. His company has dealt with a dozen just like it in the last week alone. Tanks and infantry advance.

‘Ambush! Tigers!’ a strained voice bursts over the radio, punctuated by deeper cracks as the heavy tanks open fire. ‘I’ve lost two tanks. I need smoke. We’ll back off and try to flank them, Over.’

The Captain faces a dilemma. Should he call forward his reserve tank platoon against the Tiger tanks? Or should he send it around the other flank, seeking an easier route forward?

The Captain is you. What will you do?

Welcome To The War
Welcome to the world of Flames Of War, the World War Two miniatures game that put you in command of the men and machines that fought in the decisive battles of the Second World War. As a commander, it is these difficult decisions that you will constantly be faced with on the battlefield as you attempt to match wits and cunning with your opponent as you both try to attain victory.

Open Fire provides everything you need to get started in Flames Of War. Open Fire offers the new player a first glimpse into a world that combines the joys of painting and modelling their own miniature army with the challenge of facing off against an opponent across a gaming table in a social setting. You’ll get to recreate history or change it! But more importantly have fun while doing it.
