Manufacturing update - 30th July 2021

Malaysia remains in a strict nationwide lockdown in response to the COVID19 surge they’re experiencing. This includes the Battlefront factory where we make all our 15mm ranges, which has now been closed for over two months, and will remain so, until it is deemed safe to re-open by the government. We have always had a long lead time for production so our stocks on hand have been able to cope but with the length of this closure we have already started seeing the impact hitting the range on the delivery of new items and the restocks of the current range.

When we re-open, we’re going to have to priotise the flow of product as we simply cannot make it all in one go so we will concentrate on getting our upcoming new releases finished, packed and on their way to the warehouses, stores and yourselves as the top priority. As well as the new products we will work on the core lines as our goal is to see that the entire Late-War and WWIII ranges fully stocked.

To enable us to do this, and catch back up, we’re going to TEMPORARILY suspend orders for some of our ranges so that the factory can focus their efforts as with over three thousand codes the exercise of making replacement stock for them all will take the plant some time to catch up. NAM, Great War, Arab Israeli, Early War and Mid War will be suspended in their entirety. All special / direct order codes, as these are made to order, and some of the BIAB terrain range will also be suspended.

We understand this is sad news and might disrupt some of your collecting and building plans, and we heartily apologise. Please be reassured this is temporary, and we will get those ranges back into production, as soon as we have caught up with the amended release schedule.

Pre-order Bagration: Axis-Allies - Hungarian, Romanian and Finish Forces On The Eastern Front

Bagration: Axis Allies Spotlight
with Wayne Turner

In 1944 Stalin’s Red army is on the attack. While it throws the Germans out of Byelorussia, it also goes about defeating Germany’s allies; Finland, Romania and Hungary. The Romanians hold off the first Soviet attacks, but a second massive offensive in August 1944 sees them overwhelmed. They surrender and swap sides to fight alongside the Soviets.

Meanwhile, the Finns also fight for their survival as the Soviets attempt to steamroll them out of the war. They fight the Soviets to a standstill and agree a peace, but are forced to turn on the Germans.

Mix and Match Armour – The Finnish T-26 Armoured Company

Mix and Match Armour – The Finnish T-26 Armoured Company
Finland did not really have much in the way of domestic tank production in World War II. Instead they relied on a mismatched series of tanks captured from the Soviets during the Winter War, older pre-war models they already possessed or whatever they could get from their German “allies”. In a few cases, the Germans handed over captured soviet T-34s to bolster the Finn’s ranks for armoured vehicles. The results created armoured companies that were very eclectic in nature with a few containing modern German and captured Soviet vehicles such as Panzer IVs and T-34/85s. However, the majority had platoons of the outdated T-26 light tank.

Hungarian Heavies
One of the most exciting novelties of the new book Bagration: Axis Allies undoubtedly concerns the Hungarians. They are in fact the only ones among the minor Axis powers who are able to field two of the most iconic tanks of the Second World War. We are talking of course the Tiger and the Panther.

Panzerschreck 2021
Greetings fellow Gamers! The worlds oldest FoW tournament has managed to run this year. We missed out on holding the event last year unfortunately but it was great to get stuck back in again… and had to relearn a couple of things. Fortunately, we got a weekend of unseasonably warm weather after several weeks of frosty temps.

Building a Hungarian Assault Battery With the New Starter Force

Building a Hungarian Assault Battery With the New Starter Force
With the launch of the Bagration: Axis Allies release, I thought I would look at how a new player, or someone on a budget, can get a Hungarian force on the table that would be semi -competitive or at least hold its own with the focus on the new Zrinyi Assault-gun.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.

Hungarian Steel: Mid-war Hungarian Forces 1942-43 Spotlight
with Wayne Turner

The Hungarians joined the war against the Soviet Union in June 1941, first contributing a mobile corps of light tanks, motorised infantry and cavalry. By 1942 they had committed an entire field army of 220,000 men made up of ten divisions in three corps. The freshly raised force was made up of young Hungarian recruits with little combat experience, but they were soon proving themselves in hard fighting on the Don River. They were backed up by the 1st Armoured Field Division who had many veterans of the fighting in 1941.

White Death: Mid War Finnish Forces 1942-43 Spotlight

White Death: Mid War Finnish Forces 1942-43 Spotlight
with Wayne Turner

The Finnish Army had become famous across the world for its epic defence against the 1939 Soviet invasion of the Winter War. In 1941 they joined the Germans in the war against the Soviet Union. The bitter lessons of the Winter War had been well learned. These were further reinforced during the hard fighting of 1941 as they recaptured lost territory and pushed the Red Army back to their original frontiers. With hard-fighting infantry, skilled light infantry, and their newly formed armoured units, the Finnish Army are more than prepared to fight the Soviets to a standstill again.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 20 May 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.

More Missions

Missions for Flames Of War - Updated April 2021
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 missions: • Annihilation • Breakthrough • Bridgehead • Contact • Cornered • Counterattack • Dust Up • Dogfight • Encounter • Encirclement •  Encounter •  Escape  Free For All • Escape  • Fighting Withdrawl • Free for All • Gauntlet • Killing Ground • No Retreat • Outflanked • Scouts Out •  Spearpoint •  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.

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.
