We are delighted to announce Tank! -  the first exciting expansion pack for Commands and Colours: The Great War by Richard Borg.

This expansion pack contains 6 highly detailed and pre-assembled  1/100th scale World War One British and German tank models, 2 German artillery pieces and 8 crew figures, 2 A4 punchboards of tokens and new terrain tiles and a booklet of additional Tank special rules including  bogging down and "tankschrecken" and 18 scenarios to enable players to recreate the iconic first tank battles amongst the trenches of the Western Front in 1916-1918 such as Cambrai, Villiers-Bretonneux. Included are bonus Whippet tank scenarios and rules for onboard artillery.

Having learnt lessons from the core game, the tank models are pre-assembled (and have a basic paint job and decal markings)

The tank models included in this pack are:

2 x British MK IV males

2 x British MK IV females

2 x German A7Vs

The artillery guns and crew figures are made of semi hard plastic. The guns need a bit of basic assembly but no glue is required and an assembly instruction sheet is included.

Risks and challenges

Launching a new game in any genre is rarely easy and never free. We are very close to having everything in place to give the go ahead for the manufacturer to print run the game. Kickstarter is a magnificent and proven vehicle to reach out to like-minded supporters interested in helping make a labour of a love a reality. This will also gives us an idea of how other people feel about the game. We are so passionate and invested in the project that we may have lost some perspective, so having a way of knowing how others feel about it is vitally important. We really could not do this without your support.
