TANKS at PAX

Last weekend the team from Aetherworks attended PAX AUS (in Australia) and demo'ed TANKS. They were kind enough to send us some great photos of their stand and all the action. We've put the photos up on the website in the link below.

 

TANKS at PAX...

 

PAX is a series of gaming conventions held in Seattle, Boston, Melbourne, Philadelphia, and San Antonio. Founded by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, authors of the popular web comic Penny Arcade, each PAX is a show dedicated to supporting and celebrating video and tabletop gaming.

French In TANKS: The Modern Age

French tankers have to rely on their skill and experience to overcome certain disadvantages they face on the battlefield, lacking a heavy tank option like the M1A1 Abrams or Leopard 2. To reflect this mind-set the French Platoon rule gains them an Attack bonus if they flank enemy tanks. Making French Platoons all about manoeuvre and placement, getting the most value out of clear execution of tactics on the battlefield. When deploying, it works best if you split your tanks up into two groups, sending one down each flank to maximise your chances of flanking your opponent’s tanks.

Soviet Steel - Soviet Tanks Preview

Soviet players in TANKS have been waiting for a while for something new to hit the battlefield but we have some awesome new options in these upcoming releases. Today we are previewing the T-34 (Early) alongside the KV-1 and KV-1s. These formidable tanks will be making a big splash in your games with the KV-1 having some of the toughest armour a Soviet player can field.

Italian Tanks Preview

This April will see the Italian Army join TANKS, bringing their own flavour as well as a dash of recklessness to the table top. With two new tanks; the M14/41 medium tank and the Semovente self-propelled assault gun players will be able to field a completely Italian force.

Happy Holidays from us at TANKS

It’s been a great year for TANKS, we went from Europe to the desert with loads of cool tanks to add to our platoons. I love my Tiger tanks! Next year is shaping up to be even better. We still have some fighting do to in Africa but we will also be moving to the Eastern front.

TANKS at the STGCC

Col. Clausewitz from Blitz and Peaces wrote an article about the TANK demos he ran at the STGCC. Looks like they had a blast showing off the game and teaching new players how to play.

Kampfgruppe Lueder

Hans-Georg Lueder led an interesting German formation of tanks that consisted of a mix of Tiger and Panzer III tanks. We wanted to reflect this unlikely pairing in TANKS and have introduced loads of cool cards to let players create their own Kampfgruppe Lueder.
 
This week we take a closer look at Kampfgruppe Lueder, and how the new Panzer III and Tiger tanks work together.
