Flames Of War 4th Edition Desert Armies Detailed

December 23, 2016 by brennon

Battlefront has their sights set firmly on the desert as we look towards Flames Of War 4th Edition. With the release of the new version of the game next year they’re creating new sourcebooks and new armies for you to collect.

Desert Rats

First come the books for both the British forces and the German ones too with these new books detailing the armies that would have been fighting during the period of 1942-43.

Afrika Korps

This will be followed by a Battle Box focused on the battle for El Alamein. We haven’t had a proper look inside that box yet but it should contain one mini-rulebook, one Panzer IV, one Panzer III, one Grant and two Crusaders.

The real cherry on the top of the cake, however, is that there will be two new armies for you to snap up with both Monty’s Desert Rats

…and Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

Each set comes with a lovely set of plastic tanks for you to battle it out on the sands. I really like the idea of doing a proper sand dunes board, with real sand, although it would be a hell to clean up afterwards. It would look rather epic though.

There will be more to come to keep an eye out!
