Battlefield in a Box:
Christmas can be a time to celebrate good friends and family, although it can be a little hard when you are lying in a foxhole or huddled under a tree hoping that the next artillery shell does not have your name on it.
Regardless of whether you are fighting in the depths of the Ardennes forest or outskirts of Stalingrad a collection of fully painted scenic items will make any table feel like a battlefield.

In Flames Of War
For light vehicles, such
as trucks, jeeps, and other utility vehicles, a frozen river or pond is
easier to cross. For these vehicles a frozen pond is rated as
Cross-country terrain covered in Ice.
However, a crossing is far more risky for
armoured vehicles. When an Armoured vehicle attempts to cross a frozen
river, it must roll a die and add 3 to the result. If the total is less
than the vehicle’s Front armour, the ice gives way under the vehicle’s
weight and the vehicle is Destroyed. Otherwise the vehicle safely
navigates the river and it may continue as normal.
If a vehicle moves more than 8"/20cm in the Movement Step, at the end of
its movement roll a Skill Check for that vehicle. If successful, the
vehicle navigates through the ice and carries on unharmed. Otherwise,
the vehicle slips on the ice and becomes Bogged Down.
