More Missions Pack
More Missions Pack

The More Missions pack expands on the missions in the Flames Of War rulebook and provides a new way to choose which mission to play.

The pack contains ten missions

Each mission now has a double page telling you how to play the mission and detailing the mission special rules. You can either print each mission out on a single piece of paper (front and back) or print it as a booklet with each mission on facing pages.

Know Your Enemy - British Recce
Know Your Enemy - British Recce
The British Army understands the need to keep an eye on the German forces so keeps regular patrols ranging out across the desert to make sure they can spot the enemy first. Universal Carrier and Humber Scout Patrols keep friendly forces safe from blundering into the enemy.

Studio progress update
Studio progress update

Day two of the Launch Event and everyone is working away at building tanks! One of my favourite aspects of the hobby is getting to sit around with friends and just hobby, pulling out the glue and paint to get some models finished while shooting the breeze. 

Wayne is working on his Germans for Team Yankee, getting some Leopard 1 tanks assembled. Sitting next to him is Chris working on some Panzerjager 1 self-propelled guns to make his Mid War army into an Early War one too.

Phil is putting a basecoat on some of his Crusader tanks, lets hope these will bring him better luck in his next game. Meanwhile Sean is working on some Firefly tanks for his TANKS army.

Andrew is working on some Grant tanks for both his Mid War army and TANKS army. Aaron is streaking ahead of the pack with his tanks looking in pretty good shape.

There are a lot of projects going on in the office over the weekend, some of the guys are building Team Yankee models, others are working on TANKS and of course all of us have been working on our new Mid War models. Hard to beat a weekend of hobby action when it raining cats and dogs outside!

Know Your Enemy - German Guns
Ask any Allied Tanker and he will tell you that every German gun is an 88, not so in reality where the Germans have everything ranging from the small (but deadly) PaK38 5cm gun through to the 10.5cm Howitzer perfect for smashing enemy formations.

Assembly Guide - British Crusader
The Crusader tank is one of the icons of the Desert War, fast, agile and packing a wallop for such a small tank, it doesn't want to stand still in front of the enemy for too long. Follow along as Aaron shows you how to assemble it.
