Armoured Fist: Churchill Tanks Deployed

This is going to be another amazing year for Mid War players with the much anticipated release of Avanti next month where M14/41 tanks and Semovente SP guns will return to the battlefield.

In April our British players will be able to reinforce their armies with impressive Churchill, as well as Valentines, Shermans and Priests thanks to the release of Armoured Fist.

Later this year we will also be turning our attention to the Eastern Front as the skilful German army goes head to head with the might of Mother Russia!

What's in Armoured Fist?
Armoured Fist will introduce a number of new formations to British players, including:
  • the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry Sherman Armoured Squadron,
  • the Death or Glory Boys Squadron,
  • the North Irish Horse Churchill Armoured Squadron,
  • the 40th (The King’s) RTR Valentine Armoured Squadron, and
  • the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Rifle Company.
In addition there are plenty of new support options that will help to round out your force. Keep an eye on the website as we will have more details in the future about what else you can expect to see.
The new Force diagram allows players to field these new Formations as well as all the older formations from Desert Rats. This means your Sherman Armoured Squadron can be supported by a Motor Company (found in Desert Rats). Rather than forcing players to dig through two books when building the army we decided to add the lists found in Desert Rats to Armoured Fist so players would have a complete set in one place.

Free Churchill Tank
Including these older lists in the book was a simple decision for us as it makes life easier for our players, but we also recognise that people have bought Desert Rats and have been using it for the past year. To thank our veterans of the desert when you purchase Armoured Fist just show the retailer your copy of Desert Rats, get our “Churchill Tanks Deployed” sticker added to the inside cover and receive a free Churchill Tank sprue. You now have your first Churchill tank so you can start building your North Irish Horse Churchill Armoured Squadron (or just a platoon).

Update: Good news for Flames Of War Digital users too. If you bought originally bought Desert Rats and now pick up Armoured Fist inside the app, just email our Customer Service team with a copy of the iTunes or Google Play receipts (for both books) along with your address details and we will post out your frame to you for free!
