Armies Of Late War

Armies Of Late-War Pre-order
The Armies Of Late-War cards, book and army deals mean that it is a great time to start playing Late-War either for the first time or to dust off an existing army.

The book covers all of the most commonly used formations and models in Late War and is a great starting point. If you found the unit cards from Mid War to be useful then the Armies Of Late War Card Packs contain the unit cards for the models in the Armies Of Late War book.

The four Army Deals are excellent value for starting a new army or adding to an existing army. Each box is packed with models that will form the core of any army, as well as the appropriate Unit Cards, a Start Here Guide and Flames Of War Rulebook.

M3 Stuart Light Tank Platoon
As well as serving with US armored divisions in the light battalions of the armored regiments, thousands of M3 Light Tanks were supplied to Britain and the Soviet Union. The British codenamed the tank ‘General Stuart’, after the famous American Civil War cavalry commander, and the name caught on with US troops as well.

M4 81mm Armored Mortar Platoon
The M4 MMC (Mortar Motor Carriage) carries an 81mm Mortar in a specially modified halftrack, with a reinforced floor that allows the weapon to fire from inside the vehicle. This means they’re always on hand to give indirect fire support the instant it is needed.

Ruined Large Desert House
Four walls, even if they are already full of large holes, and a roof provide the infantryman with protection from small arms fire and shell fragments. Making them difficult to winkle out without the aid of some real firepower.

Why it is better to have 5 friends than 5000
Dušan realised that there were not enough Flames Of War gamers in Vršac in Serbia (where he lives) so he decided to build a gaming community at his school, once that was done it was time to start organising events. Check out the origin story of his gaming group and their recent Early War Tournament.

Afrika Korps

8. Panzerregiment during the Battle of Gazala
In early January 1942, after being resupplied and refitted, the DAK went on the offensive against the British. In two weeks the DAK had retaken Benghazi (January 29) and had moved almost 350 miles. The offensive slowed as the Germans reached the British position at Gazala. The British position stretched from Gazala to Bir Hacheim in a network of heavily mined and fortified lines. The front settled here for the rest of Winter until May 1942, when Rommel once again launched an offensive against the British.

The Cauldron, 6 June 1942 
In May 1942 the Afrika Korps outflanked Eighth Army’s defences at Gazala. For the next week a fierce battle raged as British armour attacked the Afrika Korps, who in turn were reducing the British defences for their supplies to get through. On 5 June 1942 a full scale attack was made by Eighth Army’s armoured brigades against Afrika Korps. The 107th Royal Horse Artillery (South Notts Hussars) and the Northumberland Fusiliers (a motor battalion) were to provide support for the British armour. They deployed to the east of the Aslagh ridge, and bombarded targets over the ridge.

Changes to the Vietnam Range
We are in the process of reorganising our Vietnam product range as we prepare for the release of 'Nam next year. On November 20 we will be removing the entire Vietnam range from the online store to complete the process before the updated range returns to the online store in late January 2018.

To make it easier for you to purchase the last few items that you need to fill out (or even start) your armies we have replaced a number of the box sets with blisters so you can buy single models.
