Who are we?
Blitz and Peaces started out as a partnership by two gamers who shared a passion for WWII history and the game Flames of War. Our FLGS (Internet geek Jargon for Friendly Local Game Store) closed down towards the end of 2015 and we decided to try and keep the community alive and the availability of products so that the game can continue to be played here.
We haven't found or have the market ability to sustain a full fledged store yet so will be running off the internet and we pass on this benefit of low overheads to our customers with extremely competitive pricing.
What does Blitz and Peaces mean?
Well, we wanted a name that bore some symbolic reference to what we do, we focused on several names before this one but landed on it finally because the period which we are primarily involved in, the twentieth century is all about Blitz's, from Germany in WWII to Israel in the Arab war. The Blitz's always seem to be decisive. Peaces was because most of these wars were fought with Peace as an objective. The logo is also representative of the name with its international peace logo, but with the 2 inner spokes that of lightning symbolizing the Blitz. The meaning is mean to show that Peace is only possible through decisive actions.
What games do we support?
Our main focus is to support the game system by Battlefront (Flames of War and Team Yankee). You are free to use any 1:100 scale AKA 15mm scale models to play the game. It is largely different from other systems as the score to hit a team when targeted is dependent on their rating rather than that of the firers. The rationale is that in modern warfare, being hit by the vast array of sighted and automatic weapons is dependent on how small a target you make of yourself.
We love this game and we like to mimic scenes from movies and play them out as best we can. The scene below was a demo we used to show people the scene from the movie Fury.
As of 2017, we have expanded our range to include 28mm (Spectre and Bolt Action), boardgames (Walking Dead), paints (MIG) and as well as an excellent range of terrain (15 and 28mm) by 4Ground and TTCombat.
What are your plans for the future?
We hope to grow the community to be able to host a bigger tournament in 2017 and beyond. We will also continue to make many products which can supplement and/or enhance the gaming experience.
