Description Edit | History

Flames of War is a World War II tabletop game where you use armies represented by painted miniature tanks, soldiers, artillery, and aircraft against another similar opponent's force.

To begin all you need is the Flames of War book/rules and a starting force of miniatures depending on what type of army you want to collect.

The game uses 15mm scale (around 1:100) miniatures, allowing miniatures from other manufacturers to be used. The game aspires to provide a good balance between playability and simulation and has a typical game running under 2 hours.

The Second Edition Rulebook launched in August 2006, took a lot of advice from the players and integrated a lot of the FAQ material previously written to cover First Edition.

11 Official Quick Reference Sheet v2
Here is the official quick reference sheet for the "Flames of War" 2.0 rule book. This QR sheet is available from them (www.flamesofwar.com), but its not very easy to find and most don't know about it. So here it is. Easy to find now. Download and print for your games. Its better than having to use your rulebook, or better still, tearing out those two pages from your 2.0 rulebook.
