Night Fight, the new age of warfare Night Fight, the new age of warfare
With Scott McCorley

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to this brief. It seems Jerry has a new bit of kit that enables him to see in the dark. As you can tell this can cause quite a bit of trouble for our chaps as we don’t have this kind of technology. The boffins at OSS are calling it night vision and from what they have told me it’s got us all here in HQ a bit worried especially considering that they infantry and what could possibly be up to 50 Panther tanks with what the boffins call night optics...

Wayne has been hard at work updating the old V3 scenarios and making them compatible with V4! Keep an eye on this segment to see the reworked scenarios and try them out in V4 yourself.

The Bridge over the Savio

The Canadian infantry have just succeeded in taking the Savio Bridge in Italy, near the Gothic line, and are consolidating their position when a German counterattack begins.

Loza’s Breakthrough Scenario

Dmitriy Loza’s Forward Detachment breakthrough of the German 211. Volksgrenadierdivision near Kamenica towards Komárno (on the northern bank of the Danube River in Slovakia).

The 6th Guards Tank and 7th Guards Armies were ordered on 4 January 1945 to attack from Kamenica towards Komárno (on the Danube), 45km northwest of Budapest, as part of actions to halt the German attacks towards Budapest to relieve the besieged city. The aim was to secure the river crossing points.

Great British Paint Off!
A long time ago (five months or so) a group of four brave hobbyists set out on a short hobby detour.... a short hobby detour! Their plan was to paint a small British force of tanks and have them finished for the new year. It was meant to be a short hobby detour... a short hobby detour.

Hobby time was compromised, decals could not be sourced, new techniques were tried out, and if not for the courage of this fearless few all would have been lost on this short hobby detour...

Find out how the guys armies turned out below...

 The Big Four Of Late War

Casey's Ram Armoured Squadron
Casey's original plan for this army was to just paint a fast, wargaming standard, force. If he'd stuck to that plan he would have been home by Christmas, but no plan survives contact with the enemy. Foolishly he thought he would try doing some dust effects on one of the tanks in the spare platoon he was painting up, just to see what it looked like. Even more foolishly, he showed Victor who started egging him on to do that to the whole army.

Check out Casey's Army here...

Chris's Ram Armoured Squadron
Much like Casey, Chris dived headfirst into a Ram Squadron (of course he has pretty much painted all of the other Formations in the book already...). With a cunning plan, he dived in quickly only to find a few hurdles along the way that stalled his progress.

Victor's Cromwell Armoured Squadron
One of the major reasons for Victor to jump on this detour was the chance to recreate an army he built 13 years, combining new painting (and some sculpting) techniques with the new plastic models.

He has built a really unique-looking force that comes together nicely as a cohesive army on the tabletop.

Check out Victor's Army here...

Wayne's Comet Armoured Squadron
Wayne started building this army back in 2015 when the original Nachtjager book came out. Like many projects, it languished for a while in a box before being dusted off and finally hitting the painting table.

With such a long time going nowhere, Wayne was determined to have the army finished before Christmas and unlike the rest of the team, he managed to hit his deadline.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated March 2023
A new rule 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.

Missions for Flames Of War - Updated March 2023
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: • Annihilation • Breakthrough • Bridgehead • Bypass • Contact • Cornered • Counterattack • Counterstrike • Covering Force  Dogfight • Dust Up • Encirclement • Encounter • Escape • Fighting Withdrawl  Free For All • Gauntlet • Hold the Pocket • It's a Trap  Killing Ground • No Retreat • Outflanked • Outmanoeuvred  Probe • Scouts Out  Spearpoint  Valley of Death • Vanguard

Each mission has a double page telling you how to play the mission and detailing the mission's 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.

The Battle Plans mission selector allows 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.

Dynamic Points for Mid-War 2023

Mid-War has been around for five great years so far, and with the release of North Africa and Eastern Front, looks set to be around for many more to come. In those five years, you’ve been playing piles of games and have given us lots of feedback. The good news is that Mid War works well in its current form and is producing well-balanced games.

The new North Africa and Eastern Front books are entirely compatible with the existing books and cards. The new boxes and terrain sets make it easier than ever for players to get into the period, and much easier for retailers to stock.

That being said, there’s always room for improvement and we’ve been experimenting with some fine-tuning of the points. We didn’t want to do this in the new books because things are working well at the moment and we didn’t want to make players buy new books and cards. So we’ve created this list of entirely optional points adjustments you can try.

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. Unfortunately, the time is coming when we will need to lay it to rest at some time in the near future.

Don't 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...
