Armoured Fist Command Cards
Contains 53 cards to enhance your force, field iconic warriors and cutomise your units.
Command Cards allow Flames Of War generals to field iconic warriors, build new types of units, field new types of equipment, enhance your commander’s capabilities, and bring new tactics and strategems to the battlefield.
Command Cards are entirely optional and can be added to your force in two ways. You can add them to your normal point cost, just as you would add a unit to your force, or you and your opponent can agree on a set amount of points that each may use just to add Command Cards to your lists.
Many Command Cards are hidden until they are used, so you’re never quite sure what your opponent’s battle plans are until they are revealed. While hidden, Command Cards do not affect their attached unit—a player must reveal them if they wish to gain the benefits of the card. Some Command Cards must be revealed at the start of the game; these cards are used to build your army and have the keyword 'Build'.

Command Card Previews with Phil Yates
The Bagpiper card is one of the Build cards for Armoured Fist. Like all build cards, it lets you customise your force. In this case it is one of the variants you can use to make your Rifle Company reflect the Scots (and some Irish) regiments who went into battle inspired by their bagpipers. This card gives those close to your piper a better chance to Rally and continue their advance under heavy fire.
ANZAC Rifle Company
Being a New Zealander, this is one of my favourite Command Cards for Armoured Fist as it allows me to field a specifically New Zealand force (along with the New Zealand Divisional Cavalry card). It’s similar to the Bagpiper card in that it gives my company a better Rally rating, but unlike the Bagpiper, they don’t need to be close to the Formation Commander to benefit. The downside is that it only applies to infantry units, and it costs a little more. The Armoured Fist cards include similar options for Guards, Indian and other rifle companies, including one for an inexperienced company who still have ‘white knees’, unlike the desert veterans.
This card reflects the exploits of the North Irish Horse in the mountains of Tunisia where the Germans thought they were mad to attempt to use tanks at all! It gives one of your Churchill Tank Platoons the ability to use the Cross Here movement order while still shooting or assaulting. As the Churchill tank has a Cross rating of 2+, this means that they will automatically pass Cross checks for Difficult Terrain in the Movement Step so that they can recreate their historical forebears’ heroic achievements.
The Scout Tanks card is an updated version of the one found in the Desert Rats Command Card pack. Like the previous version, it allows you to field Crusaders and Honeys from the later part of the desert war, once the light squadron had been relegated to the scouting role for the heavy Grant and Sherman heavy squadrons. All of the cards from the Desert Rats set are included in Armoured Fist, so there’s no need to buy the old pack if you are just starting to collect British.

with one Command Rifle Team, one VB team & six Rifle/MG teams.
The section de fusiliers-voltigeurs (fusiliers-voltigeurs platoon) is another example of the French infantry’s perfect organisation for trench warfare.
Mortar Platoon (Early War)
with four mortars with crew, Observer team & Command Rifle team.
Almost every mortar used by every nation in the Second World War (and since) was essentially derived from the outstanding Brandt mle 27/31 (introduced in 1927 and updated in 1931) mortar. Even its 81.4mm calibre became the European standard used by both Allied and Axis forces. As befits their elite status, the motorised infantry have full batteries of four mortars in their machine-guns and support weapons squadron. This gives the infantry its own artillery battery to silence enemy machine-guns and anti-tank weapons as the infantry attacks.
Machine-gun Platoon (Early War)
with four HMGs with crew & Command Rifle team
The Hotchkiss Mle 1914 became the standard heavy machine-gun of the French Army during World War One when it broke German attacks as they advanced across No Man’s Land.
Fusiliers Motocyclistes Squad
with one Fusiliers Motocyclistes Squad or one Fusiliers Motocyclistes HQ Section with VB team.
Each peleton de fusiliers motocyclistes, as the motorcycle platoons are known, has a headquarters and two groups of fusiliers divided into two sections each with an FM 24/29 light machine-gun. The headquarters has the platoon commander and the combined VB rifle-grenadiers of the platoon.
