NORTH AFRICA FRONT
2GM Tactics moves to battlefields of Egypt and Lybia. Two new nations are taking part in these battles: Great Britain and Italy.
This expansion pack lets players revive the battles fought by English and Italian forces, before the German Afrika Korps arrival to the theatre of operations.
On the other side, Germany breaks the non-aggression pact with USSR and starts the Barbarrossa Campaign, bringing the blitzkrieg to Russian lands.
Most of Spanish players have been asking for new Armies to join the battle, specifically the Red Army. We have worked hard to bring them in within a short period of time.
So, furthermore, the base game cards, new unit types, support cards, terrain cards and Generals shall be added to the game experience. We are even working on a campaign book based in the new available fronts too.

Thank you again, and we will see you on the battlefield.24/10/2016 at 19:15 #51125
Since campaign ends we have worked hard in 2GM. Here you have how our taks advance:
The Spanish version of the base game is completed. In regards with the expansions, we are working in some illustrations and layout of some of the cards. Almost half of these are ready to be deployed onto the battlefield.
With regards the English version, we are in the final stages of proof-reading the rules and cards of the base game. For the expansions, the most important topic here is that we are progressing in parallel with the Spanish editions, so we assure everything is on track and that both editions are through and through identical. Currently, the texts in the cards is the only pending task and it will be reviewed a posteriori by a pro-team.
Some of the extras, the coasters and the cloth bags, are already stored in the warehouse. The play mats are being printed as you read this update and we are still collecting some missing information about the T-shirts. The Campaign Book is being localized and then, once copy-edited, it will be properly laid-out.
That’s all for now.
See you in the battlefield!28/10/2016 at 20:31 #51378John D SaltParticipant
Why is the UK represented by an RAC recognition flash, instead of a national symbol?
John.05/11/2016 at 23:16 #51923
Please sorry, for my delay in answer you.
In order to avoid national ensigns (the german ones couldn’t be used), we have tried to use the typical vehicles markings. For German, Russian, and US vehicles they coincide with the national symbols. For Italian or british we have tried to use marking widely used in vehicles. For that reason we have used that marking.
Jose Manuel15/11/2016 at 22:20 #52466
We have already sent the first set of components for a printing-test (tokens, tiles and HQ). Also, in a few days, we will send the definitive version of the boxes in both languages. We are currently proof-reading the English texts, as well as working with some illustrations and cards layout.
We expect to have all the stuff in the printer before the end of November in order to perform the final and hopefully definitive color-print test. So, basically, that means that only the customized set of dice, the Art book and the Campaign Book will remain as a ‘work in progress’.
And for those eager to see more about the game, here you have a set of new illustrations to come!
See you all on the battlefield!09/03/2017 at 18:13 #59047
Last weekend we have shown at Hispania wargames fair the sample we have received from 2GM and all expansion packs.
