Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preoders

Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preoders

Enemy at The Gates and Iron Cross Preorders
Flames Of War is now turning its eyes to the war in the east as Germany and the Soviet Union clash head to head. The German blitzkrieg had swept across the Soviet Union and taking them to gates of Moscow as winter set in. The pivotal battles of the Eastern Front were about to be fought in the streets of Stalingrad and in the Russian Steppe with the very survival of the Soviet Union at stake.

Battle of Stalingrad: War on the Eastern Front (FWBX08)

Battle of Stalingrad: War on the Eastern Front (FWBX08)
Stalingrad is your introduction to the exciting world of Flames Of War, the world’s most popular World War II miniatures game.

Dietrich's Ghosts (Plastic) (GEAB16)
The dust got into everything. Feldwebel Unger tied his handkerchief tighter across his nose and mouth, knowing it would make little difference, he could already feel the grit against his teeth. His platoon was sweeping across the steppes of the Eastern Ukraine, chasing the broken remnants of many Soviet armies. His Panzer IV had made it through a harsh winter and savage Red Army attacks around Kharkov, but now they were pushing back.

Nikolay's Steel Wall (SUAB09)

Nikolay's Steel Wall (Plastic) (SUAB09)
A flash showed where a German gun was hiding, its round parting the tall grass, speeding towards his tanks. Smirnov had no idea whether the shot had hit or not, and had no time to look about. Without slowing, Smirnov fired another shot in the direction of the German gun. As the range closed, the tanks began firing their machine guns. The T-34s ploughed straight through wooden fences and raced between the buildings, glimpses of fleeing Germans amongst the smoke and ruin making the scene surreal.

Battle of Stalingrad

From Stalingrad to Kursk
Next month we will see Iron Cross and Enemy at the Gates hitting the shelves. These two books are the first half of the Eastern Front story for Mid War with the second pair of books (Ghost Panzers and Red Banner) to follow just before Christmas. When the team first started working on the Eastern Front books they already knew that there would be just too much content for one pair of books and this gave them a great opportunity to really organise the two in a way that would be exciting to players, as well as giving event organisers a powerful tool to theme events. In this article we will be exploring what this means for the future.

Firestorm Campaign Downloads
Firestorm campaigns are a great way to gather your local gaming community together to play a series of linked games with an overall objective. Each time that players complete a game, they mark their victories on the map as locations change hands. Once the appropriate number of games have been played, the campaign is over and the side holding cities of the greatest value wins. Today we’ve put up a set downloads that will let you play out your own Firestorm Campaigns. For full details click the link below
