D-Day: Global Campaign

D-Day: Global Campaign

D-Day Global Campaign
On the 28th we are launching a massive global campaign with our partners over at OnTableTop. During this campaign you and your friends will march through Normandy reliving the key moments that define the Overlord Campaign. Defend the beaches of Normandy or try to trap the German retreating forces in a pocket and fight over Paris and the liberation of France!

What Is the D-Day: Global Campaign...

Tactical Edge Cards in the Global Campaign
One of the exciting things about taking part in the Hobby League is Tactical Edge feature. Tactical Edge cards are a series of 40 bonus cards that give players an advantage during Campaign battles. 

First things first: You gain Tactical Edge cards at the end of your Hobby League process, by gaining achievements during the course of the Hobby League. These might include finishing platoons in your force, attending a Hobby League night, playing a game during Hobby League, or teaching another player how to play Flames Of War. At the end of the League, players are awarded up to four Tactical Edge cards at random from the deck.

M10s vs. Tigers
In this battle I had the chance to field my first force from the new D-Day: American book. This is a fantastic book and along with the accompanying command cards it gives you great options  to customize your force. I was going for the veteran Armoured Rifles. Here I particularly like the subtle difference with the regular Armoured Rifles who are better at rallying (Blood ‘n Guts) and the veterans who are not as good as rally but are careful and have tactics. The Armoured Rifles have everything you could wish for, infantry, bazookas galore, support weapons, and their trusty half-tracks which can lay down strong supportive fire. This book is easily my favorite book so far. For this game we played 65 points, our group Burning Bridges is now playing Late War Normandy and gradually expanding our forces as we paint and get them ready.

The D-Day German Reconnaissance Company

The D-Day German Reconnaissance Company
The greatest thing about being a wargamer is having opinions. While writing this article I saw that Phil had also written a piece on the Reconnaissance Company from the D-Day: German book, you will see his choices differ from my own.

British Tank Markings
One of the things that we think really makes Chris' British army pop on the tabletop (and in photos) is the use of decals. As a group, we've always felt that the application of decals to a tank is that final step that really helps to make a difference – much like good basing on infantry.

Thankfully the British Army have plenty of markings you can add to your tanks!

Time For A Cup Of Tea, and British Tank Markings...

Chris' Sherman Tactics 101
Chris has started counting down the days to FlamesCon and has been thinking about how he will be using his new army on the battlefield. Since the army revolves around the 14 Shermans, probably a good idea he has some thoughts on how he will use them in conjunction with the other units in his army.

Bundesheer At War: Part III

The Bundesheer At War: Part III
With a list in hand and full knowledge on how to get it moving and grooving for games it’s now possible to turn towards how we’re going to convert and paint our Austrian forces. Thankfully, across the ranges of Battlefront miniatures we’re able to produce a pretty high fidelity representation of what the forces would look like in our modified Team Yankee timeline. In terms of structure, this article will progress in three primary parts, the initial shopping list for putting together the list we built in part 2, the conversion work needed for putting together the force, and painting the army.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 10 October 2019
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.
