Airfix Battles Availible In May – Modiphius Takes Pre-Orders

January 21, 2016 by stvitusdancern

Modiphius is now accepting pre-orders for the new soon to be released wargame, Airfix Battles Introductory Wargame set.

Airfix Battles Introductory Wargame

This new game will be based on WWII and will include everything you will need to play the game. In the box you will get…

  • 2 x Double-sided A2(420mm x 594mm) Maps
  • Over 100 cardboard counters of tanks, infantry and terrain!
  • 1 x 16 page Mission Book
  • 1 x 32 page Rule Book including rules for solo play up to 4 players
  • 1 x 54 Card Force Deck
  • 1 x 54 Card Command Deck
  • 10 x Six-Sided Dice

Yes, you get cardboard tokens for your infantry and vehicles. However, this a good thing, because anyone can pick up the box set, take it home and get playing right away.

We all know what happens next, they see that it can be played with miniatures and they are going to want to get some to add some more dimension to their game and this leads us all done the path of “shiny syndrome!” Oh, what a clever idea to get new players hooked. You can even get one of these sets and give it as a gift to that friend of yours that you have been trying to get into wargames for quite some time.

If you pre-order now you will receive a bonus pdf campaign Operation: Cobra and a bonus of twenty card Reinforcement Pack 1 consisting extra British units and tanks like the German King Tiger and Sherman Calliope rocket launcher tank! This looks like it can be very habit forming.

Besides we all have some old Airfix models lying around somewhere in the house, don’t we? The game is currently up for pre-order til May. I have ordered mine, what about you?

Do you think this is a good entry into wargaming?
