Flames of War Late-War event - mid-December or Early January

Recommended Posts

Depending on when the "Armies Of Late-War" book arrives, we will be putting together a late-war Flames-of-War event.

I am considering the date to be in mid-December or early January.

This can be at either GG or OCGG.

My suggestion is a 4-6 player event with a quasi historical scenario: perhaps a compressed version of the battle/campaign that led to US-USSR linkup in the Elbe River in April of 1945.

Any thoughts?

Any takers?

SHORT ANSWER: BOTH possible, but use either the 3rd ed handbooks, or  "The Armies Of Late-War" book



See https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5824
"The Armies Of Late-War book and card packs will help you keep playing your existing V3 Late-War armies with the new V4 Rulebook. The points are all comparable to existing V3 army books but the stats and lists have all be updated to the V4 rules."


After scanning "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45 rulebook" ("transition book #1"), it looks like all the Late-War Handbooks are supported. See p. 9 of the rule book mentioned above. You can also use the "Special Rules and Warriors" book ("transition book #2").

For those people who never received these softcover books, the online version of "Special Rules..." is at "4th Edition Useful Downloads" at https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=966


There are also unofficial proposed changes: https://www.flamesofwar.com/Portals/0/Documents/RulesUpdateSep2017/RulesUpdateSeptember2017.pdf

For v3 handbooks, your rulebooks are "transition books":

  • "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45" rulebook
  • "Special Rules and Warriors"


Did not see a PDF download link for this book: "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45 rulebook"

  • If someone has a working link, plz comment.

Some used copies sold at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Miniatures-Special-Warriors-1939-41-1944-45/dp/0987668978


Or try free from battlefront (if u have the v3 rulebook): https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5450


If you buy a Late War box set, then it comes with a " Flames Of War Mini Rulebook " https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5824
