The new edition offers the same fantastic World War II gameplay with its exciting order dice system and mixed armies of infantry, tanks and artillery.

Key New Features

Officers activate other units! Used cleverly, this creates a huge tactical shift as you can order multiple units to fire or advance in concert.

Big Explosions! HE fire now uses templates to determine damage – your opponent had better spread out his troops to avoid carnage!

Armed Transports! Once your squad has piled out of its halftrack, the driver can speed around and unleash a hail of lead at the enemy!

Player Feedback! We’ve listened carefully to the community and taken advantage of the thousands of battles you’ve played to improve the game in dozens of other ways.

New Army List

The main rulebook now includes a fifth army list – adding Imperial Japan to Germany, Great Britain, USA and the Soviet Union – giving you even more choice for your army.

New Plastics

And of course there is a shiny new Starter Set for the game too, this time featuring German Grenadiers against the elite US Airborne. Take a look at this brand new plastic infantry set below!

I’m liking the sound of all these tweaks and changes so far – I’m also excited to see the new plastics! It’s also nice to see that Explosives will be able to hit more than one target with Templates now…
