Real time campaign – Breakout on the Eastern Front

10th  November 2018
Aarhus, Denmark

The Flames of War event for ArosCon II November is called Breakout on the Eastern Front. It is a two-day real time campaign where players fight on either the German or Russian side of a encirclement battle. There are two important notes to consider when signing up for this event:

  1. It’s a Real time campaign – not a fair and balanced tournament with a pairing of players. You will probably end up in unfair situations but you will be feeling a greater purpose to your battle.
  2. The games are not only 1v1 player but can be 2v2 and even 2v1. Also, you are going to form battlegroups that will work together for the victory: either trapping the German troops or securing an escape corridor.

The Real Time mechanic is explained in detail in our briefing (in Danish) but you will be planning your army’s movement on a map and fight desperate battles to hold out against a superior enemy or punch a quick hole in the enemy defenses.

Your victories and losses during your games affect the outcome of the overall battle for the pocket.

When you participate in ArosCon II November: Breakout on the Eastern Front you can expect the following:

  • A real time campaign with movement, events and planning with the rest of your team
  • A strategic campaign where your individual battles add up in reaching your overall objectives
  • It’s an event that has a campaign driven focus – not a tournament focus
  • Both sides should expect to attack and defend equally as the battles with be a mix of attacks and counter attacks from both sides
  • 1400 pts
  • V4 rules
  • Fully painted armies
  • Formations from Grey Wolf, Herman Göring, Red Bear and Desperate Measures
  • Please prepare reserves before the battle. You are free to make as many “reserve options” as you want.
