May 16, 2024 by brennon

In the build-up to D-Day, Battlefront Miniatures are putting together some new bundled armies for those looking to play out an accurate clash on the tabletop in their 15mm wargame, Flames Of War. If you're looking to take on the role of the Axis or the Allies, you should have a set for you.

Panzer Lehr Division - Flames Of War

Shop Flames Of War @ Store.OnTableTop

We start with two of the German armies that you can pick up for use in Flames Of War. The first of these is the Panzer Lehr Division which comes with...

  • 1x Panzergrenadier HQ
  • 2x Panzergrenadier Platoons
  • 8x Sd Kfz 251 Half-tracks
  • 4x Panzer IV/70 Assault Guns
  • 3x Nebelwerfer Rock Launchers
  • 2x Sd Kfz 10/4 (2cm) Self-propelled AA
  • 7x Unit Cards
  • 10x Metal Panzer Lehr Infantry to theme your Panzergrenadier Platoons
  • 1x Destroyed Tiger Objective
  • 1x Destroyed Cromwell Objective
  • 20x Panzer Lehr Dice
  • 20x Panzer Lehr Tokens
  • 2x Objectives
  • 2x Panzer Lehr Decal Sheets

As you'll note, as well as the miniatures, these special D-Day sets also come with a bunch of additional bits and pieces to help theme your army. You get the bonus dice and tokens but also the different objective markers which are going to be great for setting up in-world focal points on the battlefield.

You can also get the 21st Panzer Division for your German forces.

21 Panzerdivision - Flames Of War

21 Panzerdivision // Flames Of War

This set comes with...

  • 7x Hotchkiss Assault Guns
  • 1x Panzergrenadier Platoon
  • 4x U304(f) Half-tracks
  • 6x Lorraine Schlepper Self-propelled Guns
  • 1x Sd Kfz 231 (8-rad) Armoured Car
  • 1x Sd Kfz 222 (2cm) Armoured Car
  • 1x Sd Kfz 221 (2.8cm) Armoured Car
  • 1x Lorraine Schlepper OP
  • 10x Unit Cards
  • 1x Destroyed Lorraine Schlepper Objective
  • 1x Crashed Typhoon Objective
  • 20x 21. Panzerdivision Dice
  • 20x 21. Panzerdivision Tokens
  • 2x Objectives
  • 2x 21. Panzerdivision Decal Sheets

Both of these forces are equally mechanised, rushing forward to see if they can combat the invasion by the Allies in Normandy. Both sets feature a good variety of lighter vehicles, heavier ones and plenty of infantry to try and hold those objectives. I like that they come with different objective markers which means that if you buy both, you've got even more options for the tabletop.

If you prefer playing as the Allies then you might want to go for the US boxed set.

2nd Armored Division - Flames Of War

2nd Armored Division // Flames Of War

The 2nd Armored Division are going to be pushing up from the beach landing zone and deeper into Normandy. This set comes with...

  • 8x M4 Sherman Tanks
  • 3x Stuart Tanks
  • 1x Rifle Company HQ
  • 2x Rifle Platoons
  • 2x M10 Tank-destroyers
  • 1x M8 Greyhound Armored Cars
  • 2x Jeeps
  • 4x 105mm Howitzers
  • 10x Unit Cards
  • 1x Crashed Kubelwagon Objective
  • 1x Destroyed Stuart Objective
  • 20x 2nd Armored Division Dice
  • 20x 2nd Armored Division Tokens
  • 2x Objectives
  • 2x 2nd Armored Division Decal Sheets

That is a decent selection of tanks for you to choose from that are going to have to work their way through the gauntlet of tank hunters the Germans are rocking. A nice mix of Shermans and Stuarts should do the job though.

Last but not least, we also have the 7th Armoured Division for the British.
