FOW in 2015

Post by sanguinius » Thu Mar 12, 2015 8:35 pm

Dat komt er uit voor FOW in 2015:


Nachtjäger

We started the year with a new Late-war book, Nachtjäger, released in mid February, covering the fighting on the German border between the British and German units. Nachtjager translates as ‘Night hunter’ and so this book also covers the night-fighting rules and features some of the very first night-vision technology ever created. It comes with four new plastic sets:

a British Rifle Company,
British Comet Platoon,
British Cromwell Platoon,
and a German Panther G/Jagdpanther Platoon box.

Open fire
The end of March sees our updated version of Open Fire! hit the shelves. The full details of this new version are already up on the site but the opportunity to improve the set further with the addition of new material and two new plastic models, British Sherman V/Firefly and the German StuG, was something we were pleased to be do.

Brown Water Navy
April sees us return to the jungle as we visit the Mekong Delta with the new Brown Water Navy book. This book cover the river fighting in the delta’s and allows you to fight a completely new style of Vietnam game. With a complete range of riverine boats to choose, from the little PBR’s to the big CCB Monitors these boats give your US forces the ability to assault the river banks and carve their way into the jungle. Never one to make it easy for the US the VC have a few tricks up their sleeves making this environment a truly unique gaming theatre.

Colours Of War
The end of April sees the release of Colours of War, our brand new painting system specifically designed for painting 15mm models. This book accompanies a newly engineered paint range that will initially be out in handy army-specific sets and then followed by a range of separates.

Berlin
June sees us reach the gates of Berlin and brings us to our newest Late-war book. Fighting for Berlin was a brutal slugfest where every trick the Germans could play to slow the Soviet advance was used. The Soviets were on the door-step of victory and had to see it through no matter the cost and the ensuing battle is one of histories bloodiest ending the war in Europe. This book has six new plastic kits to accompany it. Soviet Strelkovy Battalion, IS-2 1943/1944 variants, ISU122/152 variants, ZIS-2/3 gun Companies, 122mm/152mm Artillery Battalions as well as Bedspring Armour.
Now, at this point in the update we are at the extent of our new scluped and painted models, so we unfortunately cannot show you what things look like just yet. To not make the later section not just a block of words, we will take the opportunity to share some images of the offices from around the world.

Cold War Gone Hot
October sees us diving into a brand new period as we release Fulda Gap. The period of the modern war when tensions between NATO and the Warsaw Pact were running high is a wonderful theatre to develop as the forces arrayed on both sides boast some of the coolest-looking equipment in history. And with the advances in technology, we are looking forward to seeing forces of M1-Abrams covered by A10-Thunderbolts pitting their might against the swathes of T-72s and BMP-mounted infantry. We plan for this to be a complete period with books covering nations and plastic sets for all the main vehicles of every nation. October is just the start and 2016 will have more books and additional miniatures.

Pacific
In December we will round out the year with the first of two Pacific books, one for the US and one for the Japanese.
Yes, that’s right. The waiting is over and the Pacific will finally become a reality. The December/January book releases will each have a complete range of models and will come with a selection of specific terrain. These books will bring the Pacific to life and allow you to use the forces across several time periods.
