Armies of Late-War Forces From 1944-45

As 1944 began, the British and American forces in Great Britain were preparing for their return to France in the D‑Day landings. At the same time the Armies in Italy looked towards Rome, planning the battles that would capture the first Axis capital to fall in the war. While the Western Allies planned, the Red Army was fighting the brutal battles that would take them from Leningrad to the borders of Poland clearing the Motherland of the Fascist invaders.

Armies of Late-War (FW130)

The Armies Of Late-War book and card packs will help you keep playing your existing V3 Late-War armies with the new V4 Rulebook. The points are all comparable to existing V3 army books but the stats and lists have all be updated to the V4 rules.

Armies of Late War Introduction
with Phil Yates

As there are literally hundreds of Late War intelligence briefings, the approach we took was to pick the core tank formations to collect, along with the most common infantry formations, and make them work with the V4 rulebook without the need for the EW/LW 1939-41 & 1944-45 conversion rules. The result is the Armies of Late War book and four decks of unit cards for all the formations covered in the book

Armies of Late-War Unit Cards

Unit and Formation cards play a key role in Flames Of War. Whilst building your army they contain all the relevant information that you need to know to help you build your Force, starting with what Formations are available, what support you can take through to how tanks you get in a platoon. Then, once you start playing your games the Unit Cards have all the information you need to know from how much armour your tanks have to how fast the units move.

More Missions for Flames Of War
The Flames Of War More Missions pack is an optional expansion for tournaments and players looking for quick pick-up games. It contains new versions of the missions from the rulebook that use a different set of victory conditions and the optional Battle Plans mission selector.

The pack contains ten missions:

• Annihilation • Breakthrough • Bridgehead • Counterattack • Dust Up • Encounter •  Free For All • Hasty Attack • No Retreat • Rearguard.

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.

The Battle Plans mission selector allow you and your opponent to choose the most appropriate missions for your forces. Each player chooses a plan (Prepared Attack, Hasty Attack, or Defend) and then you look up a table to see which mission to play and who will be the attacker.
