Flames of War – Open Fire

Since finding out about Flames of War, I have been, for some time, thinking about getting into it, but have been putting it off.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the other day in Hobbycraft of all places a starter set for Flames of War that included as well as a pocket set of the full rules, three Sherman Tanks and two Stug G Assault Guns.

Open Fire! has been carefully designed for someone who has never heard of Flames Of War before, or has seen the 256 page rulebook and not known where to start. Open Fire is not a simplified set of the Flames Of War rules, but rather a complete introductory box for a new player!


Really nice idea and perfect for me.

16 page full-colour introduction booklet.


3 detailed American Sherman tank miniatures.
2 detailed German StuG G assault gun miniatures.
3 American dice.
2 German dice.

Time to start painting…
