Avanti: Italian Forces In North Africa 1942-43

Italian AT Gun Platoon (Plastic) (IBX18)
The light 47/32 gun is a small and mobile 47mm gun, allowing it to accompany infantry in the attack or be easily hidden in the defence. It is effective against enemy machine-guns and light tanks, knocking out these threats to the infantry it protects.

The Austrian-designed 47/32 M35 gun is relatively light for its calibre at 315kg (695 lb), making it quite mobile for a heavy crew-served weapon. Its 2.37kg (5.23 lb) explosive shells are quite effective at knocking out enemy machine-gun nests, while its armour-piercing and HEAT rounds are deadly against light tanks.

Bersaglieri Rilfe Platoon (IT763)

Bersaglieri Rifle Platoon (IT763)
The rifle companies sent to Tunisia retained the standard organisation of three platoons armed with bolt-action Carcano rifles and Breda M30 light machine-guns. This suited the mountainous terrain where tanks were less of a threat, and the light-weight Italian support weapons came into their own.

Bersaglieri Weapons Platoon (IT762)
After taking heavy casualties in the siege of Tobruk, infantry units in Africa were reorganised to have 'fewer men, more weapons'. The heavy weapons companies were disbanded and their weapons split up amongst the infantry companies to create all-arms strongpoints capable of tackling both tanks and infantry.

Bersaglieri MG & Mortar Platoon (IT764)

Bersaglieri MG & Mortar Platoons (IT764)
The Breda M37 heavy machine-gun and the light Brexia m35 assault mortar were used to give fire power to infantry, providing covering fire and intense bombardment to infantry assualts.

Bersaglieri Assault Engineer Platoon (IT765)
The assault engineers led the attack wherever the Royal Army needed to break through a fortified position.Equipped with everything they needed, from flame-throwers to demolition charges, machine-guns to rapid-fire light mortars, the engineers were almost unstoppable in a close assault on an enemy defensive position.

Avanti Gaming Aids

Avanti Gaming Aids
Even though they are toy soldiers, your troops react to heavy fire like real soldiers. Sometimes they get pinned down or bail out of their tanks. They can dig foxholes for protection or go to ground, hiding from the enemy. Tokens help you keep track of the state of your troops and themed dice will decide the course of the game.

Not Corrivalry 2018

Not Corrivalry 2018
Our very good friends at Battlefield Hobbies in Daventry had decided to run something a little different for their annual February event for Flames of War and threw their doors open to the community as a whole to come and have some casual games over the weekend and this proved to be quite popular, with some old familiar faces and more importantly several new comers to the Flames of War scene.

Winter Sun – Mid-War Tournament
Mid War has always been a bit of an ignored era up here in Scotland, but with the release of V4 last year we’ve seen a return to what many would consider to be the original era for Flames of War.

Our hosts for this event were the ever-accommodating Common Ground Games in Stirling.  Despite having only a table and a half’s worth of desert terrain, we managed thanks mainly to fellow Breathrough Assault writer Mark Goddard.

'Nam

'Nam: The Vietnam Minatures Game
The Vietnam War (or the American War to the Vietnamese) defined a generation, whether it was through service in Vietnam or opposition to the war. The war in Vietnam, fought nearly half a century ago, remains one of the longest and bloodiest wars since the Second World War. 

Despite its popular depiction as a guerrilla war of endless patrols and small ambushes, both sides were constantly looking for decisive victories in large-scale battles. This book allows you to recreate some of these battles on the tabletop using the popular Team Yankee miniature wargaming rules.

In celebration of the launch of 'Nam there is a 25% discount in the store. Head on over now and check it out!

'Nam Book Preview 
Vietnam. In a small corner of the world, one of the most bloody wars to be fought occurred in this small country in Southeast Asia. Traditionally framed as a war of small skirmishes, long patrols, and guerilla ambushes, there is a lot more that happened such as full-scale offensives and pitched battles.The US and its allies have all the advantages of mobility and firepower. The ubiquitous Huey helicopter has become a symbol the war itself as it carries troops into battle and unloads fire on the enemy. Heavily armed flotillas sail up the windy Mekong Delta, heavy tanks and M113 ‘tracks’ bash their way through the jungle searching for enemy strongpoints, and resolute ‘grunts’ hold firebases against fierce enemy assaults….

Firestorm Stripes

STARTS MARCH 2ND OVER ON BEASTSOFWAR.COM

The NATO forces are almost ready to strike back and push the Soviets from West Germany.

Return Of The Gaming Mat
Last year we released our first Flames Of War double sided gaming mat. Customers with long memories will remember that we suffered from a number of issues outside our control including our manufacturing partner in China pulling a disappearing act, literally packing up their machines and moving without telling anyone.

Now we are ready to release a new version of the mat that incorporates a number of the improvements that customers suggested to us, ranging from some changes to the image on the mat through to how it was packed to avoid creases.
