The Ultimate Barrage Template is the latest addition to Pyrkol´s Flame Template Collection.
This is a massive game aid bound to make an equally massive impact on the battlefield.
The Template comes assembled and ready to use, made of thick acrylic and quite sturdy. The clear acrylic material means you can easily see the units underneath.
The light going through and reflecting off the acrylic blast templates creates a glittering fiery effect; this increases your immersion in the game and really feels “in combat”.
