24 - 27 April 1918.
with Jökull Gislason
Jökull Gislason is the lead playtester from our Icelandic playtest group and is an avid gamer and "campaign guy". When he heard about Great War he immediately said "So how can I make a Firestorm for this?" He shares his thoughts on Firestorm: Villers-Bretonneux...
Firestorm: Villers-Bretonneux is the recreation of the Second Battle of Villers-Bretonneux. This battle is famous in military history as the first battle where opposing tanks met. As a playtester I have the privilege of having access to projects under development at Battlefront. My group declined to take part in the Great War design but the project fascinated me, and I started to work on a Firestorm. I had not before spent much time in research of the period of the Great War and never focused on any particular battle, so this is rather new to me. This year marks 100 years from the start of the First World War so it is a good time to give the Great War consideration.
