Free Version Four Rulebooks?

V3 Veteran: 2011 - 2017

Free Version Four Rulebooks?

With every new edition of the Flames Of War rules, we have given away free copies to all existing players to say thanks for being a player and welcome to the new version. When we went from version 2 to version 3 we gave away 26 tonnes of books – that’s the same weight as a T-34 tank! You might even say that we are Fearless Veterans when it comes to this process.

This time around it is no different, except that you will be getting TWO books, not one.

The first one is a full-sized set of rules, an 112-page, A4-sized book, formatted for existing Early-war and Late-war players. The game rules are identical to the hardback version, only instead of referring to the Unit Cards that we will be using in Mid-war, they refer to the current book range, allowing all existing books to still be used for those two periods.

As well as the rules you will also get a 64-page A5 book containing all the special rules and characters from every 3rd edition book from Early-war and Late-war, detailing how they now work in 4th edition. This is the ultimate Know Your Enemy guide, as every single book in print is covered.

So how do I get them?

1. Go to your local store (take your copy of the V3 rules with you) during our launch weekend (11 - 12 March 2017).

2. Show it to the store owner/representative.

3. Get a V3 Veteran sticker (see image above) attached to the V3 rulebook.

4. Receive the free rulebooks.

It really is that simple. Of course, there is a limit of one rulebook per person.

We are sending stores enough copies of the new rules to cover every V3 hardback rulebook or Open Fire! starter set they have sold, but it wouldn’t hurt to let your local retailer know that you are planning on coming to pick up your copy, to make sure they have one specifically put aside for you.

But I don’t have a Friendly Local Gaming Store (or my store no longer exists)!

First, don’t worry! As I said before, this is not the first time we have done this. You can contact our customer service team, send us a picture of your rulebook and tell us where you bought it from. We will sort you out one way or another, either by sending you a copy directly or letting you know the location of another nearby store that you can go to.

But I bought my copy via a store’s website!

Contact that store and let them know. They will be able to send your copy with your next order as they will be given copies exactly like a retail store.

2017 is going to be an amazing year for Flames Of War and we are excited by what we have achieved with the new set of rules, the amazing new models for Mid-war, and all the other activities we have planned. We don’t want you to miss the opportunity to come along for the ride.
