Warhammer World War II
They said there will be a new batch of supporting books for the new Warhammer Ancient Battles 2.0 book. There will also be a World War I dogfight book; the title of that one will be "Flying Circus," or something like that. Most interesting of all, there will be a World War II book that will be called "Kampfgruppe Normandy." This is interesting because my friends and I have always wondered about what playing WWII would be like with a Warhammer 40,000 (40K) framework. Years ago there was a home grown Warhammer WWII freely available on the Internet. Our group had downloaded all of it but never got around to trying it. When it comes right down to it, there already is a 40K system for WWII out there. You all know it as Flames of War (FoW). It's no secret that the creators of FoW used to be Games Workshop employees in New Zealand. But, as we all know, FoW is a 15mm system whereas I'm sure that this new Warhammer Historical book will a 28mm approach. It will be interesting to see what this new book is like. Remember; you heard it here first!
