So you want to get into Flames of War, but you have no idea where to start? You go to the Battlefront web site and you notice that, along with the myriad miniatures they offer for each country, they also have a couple dozen books.
Other than the rulebook, which do you get. What does it offer you? O lista cu toate cartile de Flames of War disponibile de la Balltefront, organizata cronologic dupa perioadele din razboi acoperite in fiecare carte. Early, Mid and Late War. This is because using a company of Panzer IIIs from the invasion of France against a company of soviet IS-2 heavy tanks would not exactly result in a balanced and fun match.
Also note that each cover image is a link to the Flames of War website where you can get more information on each. There are only a few books out, but they cover pretty much any force a player might wish to field. Mid War is regarded as the most well-balanced of the three periods.
While many of the later war monsters have yet to be developed, in Mid War the fearsome Tiger and T tanks make their appearances.
Both books are big compilations of earlier issues that each covered various major battles in either of the two main theatres of war. This is where Battlefront pours most of its creative effort. Late War is all about the toys, and the heroes that face them against all odds.
With fighting going on on three fronts and in various major operations, players are spoilt for choice. Now, because all those books with all those lists are simply not enough, the folks Battlefront also have various other briefings available for free on their website. One is easyarmy. The second website is FOW Lists. We hope this guide has been helpful in establishing a rough picture of what Battlefront has to offer for Flames of War. Early War.

This A13 Cruiser failed its Cross test.
The A13 Cruiser tanks need to pass a Cross test to reach infantry across an obstacle. The second tank passes its Cross test and moves into Contact. Tanks also need to pass a Cross test each round while assaulting in Difficult Terrain. Teams cannot assault enemy troops that are in or across ter- rain that is Impassable to them.

The solution was to protect the tanks with were Light Gun Teams. Quality of Quantity. Often their rate of fire was slow. Combined Weapons with the Cat Killers rule do not use the Volley Fire with a lack of radios and a preference for going into battle with special rule.

Gun a Turret Bunker using the Bunker rules on page Once the way is clear the troops leading the assault dash through the gaps. When combined with tangled webs of barbed wire and carefully networked trenches they sway the tides of war in favour of the defender. To defeat such measures pioneers creep forward. These can be broken up into smaller sections to make it easier to build your trench system around the terrain.
Pits are protected positions for machine-guns. They combine the flexibility of a tank with an all-round Field of Fire or a Turret. Bunker cannot be concealed in the open. Where the rules refer to Bunkers. Defilade Walls limit the field of fire of Pillboxes. Tobruk Pits. Bunkers are tough. Pillboxes have a degree field of fire from each of their Firing Slits.

The Panzerdivision counterattacks with powerful PaK43 anti-tank guns and converted assault guns. To help. You two forces that fit the scenario.
The points value is calculated based upon the size and fighting capability of each unit—the larger and more powerful a unit is the higher its points value. We will just take one Formation of armoured infantry. The forces use in a scenario will usually be based on a Force and may field one Unit from each grey box. Flames Of War uses a point system to ensure that games are reasonably fair and balanced. There are four to choose from particular value. The most common form of force selection. You can take any or all of a points limit.
There are two ways to do this: Before a game. In addition were can also take one each of six different weap- ons platoons. Formation company diagrams up to that total value. Simply use the options showing your divisional symbol when calculating points or choosing optional upgrades. The sample Formation diagram on page 87 shows that a The two forces might have the same points total. Before fighting a battle.
In a scenario. We will take an HQ Unit. All other platoons and options with either of these symbols must be from the same as your company HQ.
Formations are the core of your force and your main fighting strength. These units are not part of your Formation. These can also be called Divisional or Corps Support. The Formation Diagram is. A Formation is a group of Units under a single Commander. Often it is based on a company. I decided to field the Confident as needed. The teams of a unit fight together as a closely- coordinated group. Unteroffizier 3 Wirbelwind 2cm points - In addition if I decide to take more than one Formation.

They are ideal for pinning down an enemy position taken three Panzer as part of the Bombardment. Salvo marker when it fires an Artillery Bombardment. I just have to gather my miniatures. Everything looks dangerous. Teams from a Unit do not have Line of Sight to Teams beyond the rolled dis- tance.
The Firefly VC tank did not. Moving at night. As it is night. Few things are as difficult as finding targets at night. Their Line of Sight is not affected by Night. In the darkness shapes blend and blur turning tanks into houses. Roll immediately before checking Line of Sight. Some armies even specialised in launching their attacks at night. In addition. While most battles take place in daylight. Such battles would usually take place at Dusk or in the Darkness.

The army always has a plan. These last two methods are useful for introduce new twists to your battles with ambushes. These missions formations defend. To reflect their unique circumstances most missions use a number of special rules that make them more realistic and add exciting tactical twists to each engagement.
No Retreat. The simplest is for both players to roll a die. The third method is to have the player with more infantry Rearguard. This method is particularly opponent can either choose a mission. A Unit that is left out of battle takes no part in the game and is ignored for all purposes.

All Teams start the game Gone to Ground. The goal in most missions is to take or hold Objectives. To determine the extent of time. If neither player won. They may be placed the victory. The Passengers may be Mounted or Force that were Destroyed. The Attacker has the first turn. Once a Unit is placed on the table or arrives from Reserve.
Teams can't Hold an Objective if they moved at Dash speed in their previous turn.
Teams can Hold or contest an Objective while Pinned Down. Teams that Moved at Dash speed cannot take an Objective nor prevent the enemy from taking it. Nor can these teams prevent the enemy from Holding an Objective. You may not lean it up against a hedge or a cliff for instance. Objectives are markers to indicate the importance of this point to the combatants. To reflect this. They are held off the table at the Spearhead rule. You must place an entire Unit at a time.
