Battlefront Previews 15mm Desert Rats and Afrika Korps for Flames of War

March 28th, 2017

Battlefront have given previews of the Desert Rats and the Afrika Korps for use with Flames of War 15mm Miniatures WW2 Wargames.

The Desert Rats are the only thing standing in the way of Axis conquest of North Africa. Despite suffering repeated defeats at the hands of Rommel’s Afrika Korps, they remain undaunted. Their speedy Crusader and Honey tanks can run circles around their opposition, backed up by the heavier Grant squadrons. Their motorised infantry are equally adept in attack or defence. With support from the Royal Artillery and the Desert Air Force, they are a formidable and versatile force.

The German Afrika Korps is a hard-fighting force of tough veteran troops who have won many battles and expect to win many more. Their Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks outclass the British tanks they face, and have been steadily upgraded to maintain their edge over the opposition. Their infantry are organised to have ‘few men, many weapons’, so they pack a ferocious punch whether facing infantry or tanks. These are backed by the famous ‘88? dual-purpose anti-tank/anti-aircraft gun and the Stuka dive bomber.

February 11th, 2017

Khurasan release a 15mm range for the Gasgans, picturesquely horrid savages who constantly raided the Hittite Empire and may have contributed to the downfall of that great civilisation. Also known as the Kaska people or the Kaskians, they were Anatolian highlanders who were able to muster 9,000 men or more, as well as chariots, for their wars on the Hittites and anyone else who got in their way.

The range includes warbands, archers, slingers, and a chariot set that gives the gamer the option to build noble chariots or commander’s chariots, and includes a Gasgan witch wearing an Anatolian Viper! There’s also a warband with two chariots and over one hundred infantry available at a discount.

These models can be used to field a Gasgan army, or Gasgan mercenaries or allies in a Hittite or Egyptian army. They can also be used for other Anatolian tribesmen, including in the Trojan War.

February 3rd, 2017

Khurasan are very pleased to release their latest Cold War/Modern Armour vehicle in 15mm scale, the T-64BV.

This would have been the most dangerous adversary Western tanks would have faced on a late Cold War battlefield in Central Europe, combining the advanced features of the T-64 with reactive armour. The vehicle did not see combat during the Cold War but as it was manufactured for the Soviet Union in Ukraine, it is being used by both sides in the current Donbass conflict.

The kit is in resin with pewter details and is available on both their 80s Cold War and Modern Russian ranges.
