Welcome To The War
It’s bigger. Does that mean its better? I think so. But what I am sure of is that it is more graphical, it is easier to follow, it’s faster but most importantly it is still Flames Of War, pure and simple. I have had the pleasure of watching all studio staff really excel themselves and to them and everyone else involved I thank you for giving us the biggest and best Flames of War ever.

Battlefront Does It Again
John-Paul takes a look back at the year that was 2011 and unveils some exciting plans for Flames Of War.

Flames Of War 3rd Edition!
John-Paul follows up from his announcement last year regarding the release of Flames Of War 3rd Edition and how you can get your copy!

Forces Book
The Flames Of War Forces book contains thirteen core Intelligence Briefings with everything you need to build armoured, mechanised and infantry forces from each of the four main nations involved in WWII: Germany, the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union.

With almost six years between the current and the new version of the rules, I have had plenty of time to think about
what I would do differently next time. It is fair to say that the game was not my big concern as I knew that Phil, Pete,
and the studio would improve what needed improving, and streamline the rest. My goal was to see the rulebook include more than just rules, so that any new player would not only be able to play the game, but also be given a serious leg-up in choosing their first army and getting it tabletop ready. The idea of including two additional books was not a huge leap once I knew what I wanted, and when you spend a year developing a project, what is another 140 pages amongst friends! We did think about just making one massive tome, but quickly dismissed the idea as not very user-friendly. After all, who wants to lug around a 2.1kg book to play a game when you need each part at different times. The complete third edition rules set now comes with Forces and Hobby books to get you well and truly started, leaving you one last decision, which tank to buy first!

Hobby Book
In the Flames Of War Hobby book you will find information on the activities that surround Flames Of War and define it as a pastime. It includes collecting and building an army, with all the fun of painting and modelling, researching the history, and selecting the elements of your force in anticipation of your first game with it, and setting up a gaming table and playing games in a club or competitive setting.
