Valleycon 2022
Valleycon 2022 was held on June 11-12 at Whirinake Whare Taonga in sunny Upper Hutt. We had 14 players for a 100 point late war tournament. Battle Plans were used to determine missions. There was a good mix of armies with Soviets taking out the top two places. No US lists were submitted which seemed like a first to me. I’ll definitely be dusting off my decoy panthers after witnessing their exceptional performance!

Building a Bulge: German Force based on the New Starter Set

Building a Bulge: German Force based on the New Starter Set
with John Lee

With the launch of the Bulge: German release, I thought I would look at how a new player, or someone on a budget, can get a German force on the table that would be semi-competitive or at least hold its own with the focus on the new shiny plastic Panther (lates), Jagdpanther, Hornisse and Hummel. For the new player, it opens the door to playing Flames of War without needing to buy, assemble or paint too much and get into playing the game quicker.

Battlefront Digital 

Seven years ago we launched FOW Digital to customers as a convenient way to purchase, download and reference Flames Of War books and lists. For some of us it seems like just yesterday but in the software development world that is many lifetimes ago! Despite a number of software upgrades over the years it has become unstable for some Apple users as new versions of iOS are released, rendering the app unusable to them and unfortunately the time is coming where we will need to lay it to rest at some time in the near future.

Dont Panic!

We are migrating customers over to a new website where you can access your content and add more. By moving to a website we give you, the customer, more power with how you can use your Digital content. Want to read your book on your phone, tablet, PC or Mac? Go ahead...

Missions for Flames Of War - Updated June 2022
With the rulebook now adopting the revised victory conditions from the old More Missions pack, we've updated it (now just called the Missions pack) to reflect this. 

The pack contains Twenty: • Annihilation • Breakthrough • Bridgehead • Contact • Cornered • Counterattack • Dust Up • Dogfight • Encounter • Encirclement •  Encounter •  Escape  Free For All • Escape  • Fighting Withdrawl • Free for • Gauntlet • Killing Ground • NoRetreat • Outflanked • Probe•  Scouts •  Spearpoint • Valley od Death • Vanguard •

Each mission has a double page telling you how to play the mission and detailing the mission special rules. You can either print each mission out on a single piece of paper (front and back) or print it as a booklet with each mission on facing pages.

More Missions

The Battle Plans mission selector allow you and your opponent to choose the most appropriate missions for your forces. Each player chooses a plan (Prepared Attack, Hasty Attack, or Defend) and then you look up a table to see which mission to play and who will be the attacker.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated November 2021
A new rules set always results in questions about how the finer points of the game should work so Lessons From The Front is the place to go to find answers to some of the harder questions.

These are living documents that we will update as often as possible but please bear in mind that whilst we listen to feedback in the forums (and other places) we need to take a considered approach before implementing any changes.
