This Tuesday we’ll have a chat about games and Cold War on Whiskey Charlie Channel – with Maurice Fitzgerald (Moe’s Table), Kev Sharp (BigBoardGaming), Anthony Morphet and Fabrizio Vianello (TRLGames)…don’t go AWOL!!
Here’s a gallery of the Grognards reporting from the AFNORTH Front!
Thanks to everybody for supporting us in what has probably been our biggest endeavor until now.
Once again, Grognard Emeritus Kaya Moriya translated the whole “1985” set of rules into Japanese! Kudos to him!
1985: Under an Iron Sky – Third Echelon will begin production printing in a few days! As we’re going to mobilize several extra divisions to be used as strategic reserve for conventions and so on, it will be possible to order a copy for a few more days.
Last chance to Report For Duty, before KGB reports you!
After two years of worldwide unrest and open revolts, the TRL Central Committee finally surrendered to popular demand. A Third Echelon of 1985: Under an iron Sky will be mobilized.
As this will be a small and very expensive (on our side) print run, we are forced to change our usual “we just print it, you decide later” policy. Think about it as a sort of Kickstarter, with the difference that you’ll get your money back should things go wrong.
The minimum number of 200 ordered copies has already been reached, so Third Echelon is now MOBILIZED and nothing will stop it.
Here’s the Rules of Engagement:
- Third Echelon will be identical to the previous two except for updated rules, some extra counters and the “Third Echelon” label on the box.
- We’ll keep the recruitment office open until June, 15th. After that date, no orders will be accepted and production print will start.
Do your duty and enlist to defend the Rodina from the capitalist aggression! Move out to the front!
The first version of 1985: Deadly Northern Lights Living Rules is out!
Some interesting additions are Naval Bombardment and a more tricky GIUK External Front, plus other minor fixes – Check out the List of Changes for a complete overview. There’s also a small errata regarding two errors on the map and an omission in the scenario booklet….sorry for that 🙁
You may find the files on the 1985: Deadly Northern Lights page, or download them directly here:

With Nordic Front now stabilized, AFNORTH reports that 10 additional “1985: Deadly Northern Lights” copies are available in European depots. Request any needed supply before it’s too late!
EDIT: Front collapsed, no survivors.
Ubiquitous Kev Sharp from Big Board Gaming is now reporting from UK Mobile Force, defending Kobenahvn port!
