The Second World War saw the rise of armoured fighting vehicles, in particular the tank, from experimental designs based on unfounded theories to fully developed war machines capable of incredible destruction. Wherever nations clashed, tanks could be found, often having a pivotal impact on the outcome of battles and campaigns.

Achtung Panzer! puts YOU in command of a tank platoon and thrusts you into the heart of the action on the battlefields of World War Two. Take charge, and lead your armoured forces to glory!

The Blood & Steel starter set contains everything you need to start playing Achtung Panzer!, with a pair of mighty German Panthers facing off against a trio of British Shermans, one of which is the Firefly variant mounting the fearsome 17pdr gun. These five mighty machines are all rendered in fantastically detailed plastic kits, packed with optional extras, and can be customised even further with the included stowage packs, allowing you to make truly unique and characterful tank platoons.

Alongside these highly detailed plastic tanks for British and German forces, plastic ruined scenery and a host of event and asset cards add fantastic depth to your games. Terrain is essential to the close-quarter engagements between opposing armoured vehicles on battlefields dominated by buildings, ruins, woods and other terrain that make up games of Achtung Panzer!, while the cards ensure a dynamic, ever-changing battlefield where no two battles are ever the same.

In addition to a full breakdown of the nuts and bolts of Achtung Panzer!, the 108-page, full colour rulebook explains how to recruit your crew, select your platoon of tanks, assault guns or armoured cars, and introduces a campaign system that allows your crew to progress after each encounter and your tanks to be upgraded to be more effective in the next battle. Extensive tank profiles allow you to field hugely varied forces of some of the most famous armoured fighting vehicles of the Second World War, while photocopiable stat cards mean you can get your existing collections into action right away! With Britain, Germany, the USA, and the Soviet Union covered in this core rulebook, additional nations, theatres of operations and tanks will be introduced in future expansions.

The player who best exploits the strengths of their tanks and crews, plans their movement carefully, and uses battlefield terrain to their advantage will prevail – will your tactical acumen and the fighting spirit of your tank crews carry the day?
