As well as that, the book also comes packed with detailed unit histories that you could use to inspire a new themed force or two on the tabletop. Hobbyists and painters will also find painting and basing guides for making properly awesome desert-dwelling armies.

New Flames Of War Starter Sets

As well as the new book, there are two new Starter Sets that offer up options to play as all four of the factions. We start with Kasserine...

The Kasserine Starter Set gets you going with the Americans and the Germans on the tabletop. You get a whole host of tanks and guns plus a complete rulebook and quick-start rulebook. You can also take a different approach to the desert war with Tobruk.

This boxed set switches this up and introduces the British and the Italian forces clashing on the tabletop. Much like with Kasserine, this comes with a bunch of plastic tanks and artillery plus the core rulebook and quick start guide.

If you were so inclined, you could maybe even pick up both of these sets and turn them into a BIG Allied Vs Axis fight for the desert.

New Flames Of War Starter Forces

If you want to expand those sets or you want to approach Flames Of War from a different direction, you can also pick up four new Starter Forces which have been designed to match the four nations presented so far.

These sets offer up a few more options for playing Flames Of War with additional tank units, artillery pieces and more. Much like with the Starter Sets, they also come with a smaller rulebook for you to dive into alongside the updated and tweaked unit cards for the various tanks on offer.

This then means that if you want to play out the Mid-War period of World War II you now have six ways to do so. As mentioned, all of these sets can be pre-ordered today so you just need to work out where you're going to start!
