E hei-los que já cá cantam!
No seguimento do anunciado na Press Release de Março de 2007 (reproduzida baixo), já foi lançada a primeira série de produtos World Tank Museum pela Fantasy Flight Games, respectivamente a Bulge Series (Platoon Packs, Single Packs) e Panzertales.
Devo dizer que já tenho na minha mão os Platoons Pack e um dos Single Pack, e como não poderia deixar de ser o livro Panzertales, e como esperado a qualidade está espectacular, não fosse tudo isto material produzido pela Kaiyodo.
Isto tudo em preparação para:
World Tank Campaigns™ (WTC) is a series of tactical games that employ cards, miniatures, and boards in a fast-playing action game designed primarly for solitaire, with one-on-one action as well. WTC is the brainchild of Dana Lombardy, designer of the award winning Streets of Stalingrad.
Germany’s last gamble to change the course of the war initially surprised the American forces, but it resulted in a major Allied victory. Now YOU play the role of a German or American tank commander directing a platoon of tanks with supporting forces.
Each STARTER Set has everything you need to play SOLITAIRE and 2-PLAYER games:
- 2 historically accurate, incredibly detailed 1/144 scale plastic tanks
- Miniature tanks are pre-painted and fully assembled and include a historical information sheet about each tank
- 2 full-color battle “boards” unique to the Ardennes and the Sherman M4A3 and Panther G tanks
- 6 custom designed army-specic dice, plus standard d6 & d10
- 88 full-color playing cards make gameplay fast and exciting
- 55 die-cut play aid tokens (not show here), illustrated rulebook, and Quick Start Rules for the solitaire game
2 EXPANSION Sets include:
- 22 additional cards, a Jagdpanzer IV tank-killer or King Tiger super heavy tank with their own unique battle boards and scenarios.
