Building a North African Battlefield

Building a North African Battlefield
It probably comes as no surprise that over the past year or so we have been playing a lot of games with a North African feel as we release Afrika Korps through Armoured Fist.

Building a good battlefield is key to ensuring that players have a fun game, with a variety of tactical challenges. Thanks to the Battlefield in a Box range of pre-painted terrain I've got plenty of options to choose from as well.

So what could a North African battlefield look like?

Team Yankee Forces
We are excited to announce that it is available for Team Yankee! Because Team Yankee (and V4 Flames Of War) work a little differently to previous versions of Flames Of War, there have been a number of changes made to how Forces work so even you veterans should take a few seconds to read this basic primer.

We've also added two Free lists with Bannon's Boys and Potecknov's Bears so you can see how it works and give it a try before you buy!

Volksarmee formations have now been added to the Team Yankee Forces site! Next up on our list is Iron Maiden.

TANKS FAQ

TANKS FAQ
Over the past couple of months, we have been working a lot more closely with the community and one of the things that has been a high priority for us is to provide a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Today we are excited to present the Playtest version of the document. Because the FAQ has been a long time coming we wanted to make sure that as many of your questions were covered off as possible. So rather than presenting the first version of the FAQ as a completed document we wanted to involve the community as we go through our own internal playtesting process. In a few weeks once our process is complete, and we’ve had a chance to review your comments and questions we will issue the document as the first Official TANKS FAQ. Of course, in the meantime there is no reason you can’t use it as it stands now.

Firestorm Tunisia - Forums....

Firestorm Tunisia - Terrain
The terrain in Tunisia is rugged, unique, and had a major influence on the battles fought there.  Several new terrain features are introduced for Firestorm Tunisia.  Get ready to encounter vast Salt Beds otherwise known as tank death traps; Rocky Ground that makes it impossible to dig in; Heavy Scrub that is perfect for hiding an ambush; and entrenched, dry water-ways called Wadis that form a natural and formidable defense.  Heavy spring rains would then transform these difficult terrains to nearly impassable.

Firestorm Tunisia - Units
One of the exciting features of a Firestorm campaign is the use of additional “free” units that are added to players’ forces for each battle. These additional troops represent the combat power associated with the units fighting on the campaign map – the more units attacking on the map, the greater the force attacking on the battle table.
