World War II Comes to the Award Winning Fields of Fire Game Engine

Crucible of Force is the newest title to hit the miniature gaming market this year. Covering the early years of World War II, players can play out scenarios set during the war years between 1938 and June of 1943. Using the same game engine as our original Fields of Fire, Rules for Modern Combat, which won the Origins Award for best historical miniatures game of the year in 2014, the play system is simple yet authentic World War II combat.

Fields of Fire wins Origins Award

Proving Ground Game's Fields of Fire won the Origins award in the category of Best Historical Miniature Rules for 2014.  It was a great honor to have our first publication picked as the winner this year.

While at Origins, the staff at Proving Ground Games ran several games of Fields of Fire and each game session was well attended.

One of the more popular scenarios was one from the upcoming Movie Monster Madness, that will be published sometime next year as an expansion for the Fields of Fire Rules system.

The first showing of the WWII test set was also demonstrated in the sales booth.

Customers can expect to see WWII rules using the Fields of Fire system later this year.
