Flames of War: Open Fire!

Open Fire Preview – from Battlefront / Flames of War website

Over eighteen months ago we decided that we wanted the third edition to be a new milestone for the game, not just a more graphical and polished set of rules. We wanted to create the ultimate starter set for Flames Of War. With this lofty goal in mind, and the new technology of plastics to learn, we started down the path to Open Fire!

We ended up using three differing methods of plastic manufacturing (zinc casting, pantography and digital design) to produce the two complete forces in the box. These two forces give you a British armoured squadron with support from some fearless US paratroopers to deal with the German grenadier company defending their V1 launcher (yes that is in the box as well) with the aid of a StuG platoon and some anti-tank guns. As well as the plastics, the box comes with a quick-start booklet, terrain, tokens, dice and a complete 296 page copy of the rules for you to dive into after you have played a few games.

Open Fire! has been designed with the new gamer in mind, but every model in the box fits into our existing range, although the infantry set a new standard that you will see more of in the future. We could not be happier with how our first boxed version of Flames Of War has come out and we know this will make it even harder for players to resist having a go at WWII war gaming. Here are the first images of some of the components with more to follow in the next few weeks.

~ John-Paul.

The Box Contains:

∙ A 52 Page Full Colour Quick Start Guide. ∙ A 296 Page Full Colour Complete Rulebook. ∙ More Than 118 Finely Detailed Miniatures. ∙ V1 Flying Bomb Terrain Feature. ∙ Cardboard Terrain. ∙ Tokens. ∙ Objective Markers. ∙ Army Lists. ∙ 20 Dice.

In stores from 20 October 2012.
