    Axis forces

    https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=7238

    This new book is now available for pre order. I have never actually seen anyone field any of these forces but some of them do look interesting.
    Always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented.

    Bit of a niche area to get into, be interesting to watch and see how well this is received.

    They were all lumped in at the back of the Grey Wolf compilation of the various books that had been released for v3 and they all seemed to play quite differently. From memory the Hungarians, or RUmanians, had access to a lot of the German armour though with variable skill and morale so they were reasonably simple to use I would have thought.

    The Finns had a lot of captured early Russian armour which was quite outclassed in later war though correspondingly cheaper. It is surprising how a horde of poor tanks can do a lot of damage if they can get side shots at weaker armour

    I know the Rumanians had PzIV's and the Hungarians had a pretty decent self propelled gun with their Zriny (sp?) series, the Finns had Stug's and also some PzIV's I think. As for morale by 1944????

    Are you going to give this a go Frank?

    No, definitely not, though that is because I am trying to cut down on the amounts of armies/forces/ whatever I am using now, both for the cost and because I am in my mid 60`s and I am getting conscious that I don`t have too many active gaming years ahead of me and with only getting 1 night a week I don`t get enough chance to play with the stuff I do have.

    Meanwhile a spotlight on the new book:
