New Buildings for Flames of War

Friday, February 26th, 2016

I see from the latest update to the Battlefront website, there is another subscription set of “premium” buildings released for Flames of War (but would probably also be fine for Team Yankee).

This year we are launching another limited range of Premium Buildings to add some unique centrepieces to your battlefield. Each building is designed to be characterful, yet fit in with the existing Battlefield in a Box range of buildings and houses.

There are six models, a steelworks factory, a set of ruined buildings, a clock tower, a café, an estate house and a damaged eastern church. Out of the six available, my two personal favourites are the manor house and the ruins.

The Ruined Building includes a large two-storey house and two smaller houses, with extensive shelling or bombing damage, perfect for a war torn 15mm urban battle zone.

As for the Estate House, this stately home will work equally well as the centrepiece of country battlefield or as a grand home or municipal building in a town street.

They are also going to re-release the manor house and the farm house and barn from the previous premium subscription deal they had. I always liked the manor house, so if I can get one (from retail).

I also quite like the farmhouse and barn which I had not seen before.

At £35 each they are not that cheap (well not compared to the houses deal I did subscribe to), if you order them all in advance at £175 then you get the damaged eastern church for free.

So are you going to subscribe to the deal?

A larger photographs (click for the larger version) of my 15mm Normandy Village. As well as Battlefront roads and houses, I also have in there some of the nice 4Ground laser etched wooden buildings.

More photographs of my 15mm Normandy Village for Flames of War.

You can imagine that this would be the view from the gun camera of an RAF ground attack Typhoon attempting to flush out some entrenched Germans. You can see I have used the outbuildings to complement the Flames of War Normandy houses.

I am quite pleased now with how much scenery I have now for 15mm Flames of War games.

There are also K&M trees that are now quite old, but have stood the test of time, I think they must be nearly twenty tears old!

In addition and not shown in these pictures, mainly as they are not finished, are some Total Battle Miniatures 15mm ruins.

I look though at my grass tiles and think they are a little too bright, they might need some work in the future.
