Ironfist – December News Release
All is busy at the Ironfist Bunker in the run up to Christmas! Sadly not with preparing our lists for Santa, but with work on the next releases due for 2013.
Work on the provisionally titled Battlegroup Normandy continues to go very well. A lot of the work is done and the army lists are entering their final drafting stage before a second round of playtesting starts. The lists have all turned out very well and each gives players the option for a distinctive style of force. With a huge thirteen lists to choose from, players will have a ton of variety to pick from covering everything from the actual landings to the end of the campaign. Add to this specific special rules to bring out the character of the fighting in Normandy and its promising to be a very exciting release. Soon you will be able to game storming the beaches and fight all the way to the West Wall!
Alongside this we are busy painting up forces ready for a few photo-shoots next year. Once more we hope to raise the ‘eye candy’ stakes with some great photos and artwork to inspire our players. Warwick is finally reaching the end of his Fallschirmjäger army, while Piers is battling away against stuff for 21st Panzer Division and a few more US Airborne, not to mention yet more British! Some of these figures will also feature in an upcoming Normandy demo game we have planned for early 2013.
Looking ahead, we have two demo games confirmed for Salute 2013. One by the Ironfist Demo Team will focus on a 1945 city fight on the Eastern Front, showcasing the initial development work completed on Battlegroup – Fall of the Reich. The second game is being run by the GMG Club from Kildare in Ireland who will be showcasing a Normandy game. If you are going to Salute, drop by and say hello to the team and grab a copy of Battlegroup Normandy that should be hot off the presses at that point!
In other news, work has tentatively begun on Fall of the Reich, and its going to be a very different game from the others. German players will really find the pressure is on them with this release! While Warwick has been beavering away at that, Piers has started work on a Battlegroup article covering the anti-partisan war in Yugoslavia. There is even rumours of a UK-based Kursk campaign weekend for next year in the planning! All in all, it’s pretty hectic!
So, from all here at Ironfist, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Don’t forget to visit The Guild forum for more news and discussion on the game and look out next month for another update and maybe a sneak peek at Battlegroup Normandy…
I have updated the downloads pages with a new Q and A PDF, with some extra questions and answers added.
Also, just a sneak peak of one of the twelve sketches Dave Pentland has now completed for the next book.
