I'm afraid the armies books have indeed be superseded.  

However, I do believe there are PDF updates somewhere for them...


Current 3rd edition books:


  • Blood,Guts and Glory, released in April 2012, covers the fighting in Alsace and Lorraine. Includes lists for American Tank, Tank Destroyer and Armoured Infantry companies from September 1944 to the end of January 1945, as well as providing lists for the tanks and infantry of the Panzer Brigades that fought in this area.

  • Devil's Charge, released in July 2012, covers the fighting by the 6th Panzer Army in the Battle of the Bulge. Includes lists for Kampfgrupppe Peiper and Skorzeny's Panzer Brigade 150. For the American's it covers the infantry, engineers, light tank and cavalry companies that fought from September 1944 to the end of January 1945.

  • Nuts!, released October 2012, covers the fighting around Bastogne and Operation Nordwind. Includes lists for US Paratroopers, Airborne Engineers and Glider Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division, as well as Volksgrenadiers, Schwere Panzerjager Abteilung 653 (with Jagdtigers) and the troops of 25 Panzergrenadier and 17 SS-Panzergrenadier division.

  • "Market Garden", released in February 2013, covers fighting by Allied Forces in Operation Market Garden. Includes lists for British, Polish and American Airborne forces and ground forces such as British 30th Armoured Corps.

  • "Bridge by Bridge", released in February 2013, covers fighting by Axis Forces in Operation Market Garden. Includes German Fallshirmjäger, Wehrmacht and SS troops.

  • "Overlord", released in June 2013, covers the Allied invasion of Normandy.

  • "Atlantik Wall", released in June 2013, covers the defense and counterattacks of France by German forces.

  • "Rising Sun", released in July 2013, covers Russia's early war operations in the Winter War against Finland, as well as their operations against the Japanese Empire. This book represents the first official lists for the Pacific Theater of Operations.

  • "Desperate Measures", announced for release in December of 2013 in the October issue of Wargames Illustrated, will provide briefings and lists for the final Soviet push into Berlin.

  • Two new late war Italian front books have been announced as well, taking a similar format to "Market Garden" and "Bridge By Bridge", will replace "Cassino" and "Dogs and Devils".




If you come to any of the Elysium gaming nights, we'll get you up to speed!


Cheers

Most of the guys here are doing Late War from Normandy or Market Garden.  But late war is the preference.

It might be worth mentioning scale as well, as I remember Batchie buying loads of 20mm Armourfast tanks years ago, last and only time I played 2nd ed was in 10mm, played the 1st ed in 20mm a few times, but I believe that the guys at the club are using the nominal scale of 15mm.

Also this might be of interest http://theminiaturespage.com/news/?id=1972675581

Good shout Gordony!  Never thought to mention.

I bought those brits as soon as I laid eyes on them.  Been waiting for weeks for them to go on sale!  Bought 5 of their cromwells and the quality is great.  The price is simply awesome  as well.

Awesome!

You should come along on Thursday to Elysium to see some Flames of War action.  I'll hopefully have some of mine painted up since my hand is no longer sore!

Well the latest set of rules are a touch less gamey, and besides, weren't you the one who mentioned that you liked it not so long ago. I will still not buy into all these bloody codexes, I'll play with whatever I have.

And anyway, my new avatar looks way cooler than yours does.

Have a good christmas Dave.

Remind me to introduce you to BKC, thats the ruleset that persuaded me to abandon FoW, but that was back in the bad old Kirrie days when our glorious leader pronounced to all and sundry that Rapid Fire was "The Way To Go!!". A more **** WW2 set of rules I have yet to find.  No  No

In terms of value, it's insane!  I've split 2 of these sets with friends to get the US Airborne.  2 Platoons and a butt load of tanks Smile
