With epic entries made on the Eastern and Western Fronts, Ironfist Publishing decided to bring the two together with Battlegroup: Fall of the Reich.
We’ll also take a look at the library of amazing campaign books that have been produced for this great game.
Please remember, you need at least one of these campaign books to play, so pick your favourite and give this game a try!
Ironfist Publishing continued to expand through early war gaming with Battlegroup: Blitzkrieg in 2015.
With this sourcebook, players can explore the opening campaigns of World War II in Europe, including the German invasion of Poland in 1939, followed by Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, and France in the summer of 1940.
In the campaign supplements, however, the scenarios get much more detailed, highlighting conditions and factors particular to the theatre in question.
There are also “campaign games,” where players can fight their way through a whole swath of historical combat, like Prokhorovka at Kursk or the Breakthrough to Berlin in 1945.
Speaking only for myself, I find the early parts of World War II to be a much more interesting wargaming experience.
The odds are much more even than later in the conflict.
These Battle Rating values add up to give your force’s “Battle Rating threshold,” against which your opponent will be forcing you to draw counters in the game.
