Battle Of Stalingrad: War On The Eastern Front

Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preoders

Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preoders

Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preorders
Flames Of War is now turning its eyes to the war in the east as Germany and the Soviet Union clash head to head. The German blitzkrieg had swept across the Soviet Union and taking them to gates of Moscow as winter set in. The pivotal battles of the Eastern Front were about to be fought in the streets of Stalingrad and in the Russian Steppe with the very survival of the Soviet Union at stake.

Iron Cross - German forces on the Eastern Front 1942-43

Iron Cross Spotlight
Iron Cross is the next step for the German army in Mid-War as we look towards the Eastern Front. German players will be able to field familiar favourites such as the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks whilst Iron Cross also introduces Grenadiers and Assault Pioneers allowing you to recreate the intense infantry fights of Stalingrad and beyond.

Join Mike as he takes a look at what is in store for players in Iron Cross.

Iron Cross Spotlight...

Enemy at the Gates Spotlight
Enemy at the Gates brings the Soviet Army to Flames Of War. As you’d expect, the book has a variety of tank and infantry formations and plenty of interesting support (flamethrower tanks or rocket-firing trucks anyone?).

Phil takes us through Enemy at the Gates and introduces us to the wealth of new units and models that Soviet players will be able to enjoy.

Eastern Front Live Launch Coming Soon

Eastern Front Live Launch Coming Soon
To go with the release of Enemy at the Gates and Iron Cross we will be having another Live Launch Event on the Flames Of War website. The Launch will be taking place on the 23rd and the 24th Of August so make sure you tune in. Today we are taking a look at what you can expect from a Battlefront Live Launch.

Eastern Front Live Launch Coming Soon...

From Stalingrad to Kursk
Next month we will see Iron Cross and Enemy at the Gates hitting the shelves. These two books are the first half of the Eastern Front story for Mid War with the second pair of books (Ghost Panzers and Red Banner) to follow just before Christmas. When the team first started working on the Eastern Front books they already knew that there would be just too much content for one pair of books and this gave them a great opportunity to really organise the two in a way that would be exciting to players, as well as giving event organisers a powerful tool to theme events. In this article we will be exploring what this means for the future.
