These are the outline games for 2014 to 2016. The dates and price of the 2014 game has been decided, the dates and prices of the subsequent games will be confirmed at a later date.
2014 Game – 1942
Following on from the 1941 Campaign, this game will feature two mini campaigns designed to run from the start of 1942 to around June or July of the same year, depending on strategic decisions made by the command teams.
The Eastern front game will be set in the Crimea and provide both sides with a number operational challenges. The game will also contain an Air game and some use of Naval assets. The Axis forces will contain German and Romanian forces while the Soviets will have a variety of Mechanised formations and some very interesting amphibious forces. The number of players for this campaign will be around 8 per side.
The Western Desert and Mediterranean campaign will start with the Allies in control of Crete and the Axis in control of Malta, as at the end of the ’41 game, and the ensuing problems that this will cause. Again an Air and Naval campaign is planned with a variety of the forces available to both sides for the Western Desert. The number of players for this campaign will be around 10 per side. There will also be options to add in a Guadalcanal campaign but this will be dependent on bookings. If we add this option it will be a 4 player per side campaign.

2015 Game – Operation Sealion 1940
September 1940: The Battle of Britain rages on but the RAF has been forced to retreat to operational bases North and West of the capitol. In the channel, the Home Fleet is about to be engaged by the combined might of the Kriegsmarine the Regia Marina, and remnants of the Marine Nationale. The skies of the English Channel will be thick with aircraft from both sides while in the ports of France an invasion force of German and Vichy French forces are poised to sail. All that stands between this Blitzkrieg across Britain and death of Empire is the hastily reformed Army which escaped from Dunkirk, stranded Free French troops, newly arrived Commonwealth forces, and the Home Guard.
The time to fight on the beaches, landing grounds, streets and fields has arrived.
This game will contain Ground, Air and Naval games designed to run concurrently. The game is planned for between 20 to 25 players per side. Dates and prices TBA.
2016 Game- Red Storm Unleashed 1984
In a new venture, we currently have a group developing ideas and rules for a Modern Campaign. As soon as there are some firm details these will be unveiled, but the aim is for a game which provides an integrated Air campaign. Lots of fun with modern armour, fast jets, and helicopters…and no nukes…well only if the other side uses them first…. The game is planned to for around 20 to 25 players per side. Dates and prices TBA.
