Hit The Beach With Flames Of War & Operation Overlord!

June 28, 2013 by brennon

Battlefront are teaming up with WWPD to bring you a massive Flames of War campaign set against the backdrop of World War II and the D-Day Invasion of Normandy. And it’s looking pretty epic…


Atlantik Wall

The campaign and the focus on D-Day will be drawing on the two books above, a wealth of articles and resources from the Battlefront website and much more to help re-enact the Invasion of Normandy. You will be able to look back through a massive archive full of scenarios, hobby articles and more to make your Flames of War experience top notch.

Operation Overlord Campaign Map

Operation Overlord (the map of which you can see above) will chart the progress of the Allied invasion of France. However unlike the real life campaign things could change in an instant! Each of your battles will be logged and scored against everyone else and we might end up with the Germans holding off the invading forces!

D-Day Landing Mat

To help you out with this massive campaign Flames of War have been releasing a whole bunch of miniatures and terrain to get you going. Above you can see the Landing Craft and Infantry Divisions for the Allies alongside that awesome ‘ready to go’ battle mat that recreates one of the beach landing areas during the invasion.

If you want to get involved you can check out the Operation Overlord links above which will feed into more details concerning the campaign. And don’t forget to check out the Battlefront site for plenty of articles too.

It all starts on the 30th of June 2013 so get involved!
