As a nation, the “Fightin’ Frontier” is inclined to take a sporting approach to war. Frontier Commanding Officers keep tabs on their world ranking and are very competitive about their latest “scores.”
The Western Frontier keeps its age-old enemy, the Tundran Empire, at arm’s length, but they are out of touch with what goes on beyond their borders.
The Western Frontier is where the beginning of the campaign is held. It resembles the United States of America in real life due to similarities between the units, soldiers, and the commanding officers. The main color of the Western Frontier is green.
The Western Frontier is headed by Brigadier Betty, Colonel Austin, and General Herman. More information on these officers can be found in our BW CO guide here.
The Tundran Empire has long been ruled by a Dynasty. Tundra is steeped in tradition with a rigid social structure. Only male members of the Imperial family may aspire to the Officer class of the Tundran army. This has changed with the ascendancy of Marshal Nova to the rank of Supreme Commander. His first and most controversial act was to demonstrate his belief in merit over birthright by appointing Nelly to the post of major.
The Tundran Empire is the first territory the Western Frontier goes up against. It resembles Russia or the ex-Soviet Union in real life due to similarities between the units, soldiers, and the commanding officers. The main color of the Tundran Territories is red.
The Tundran Territories is led by Tsar Gorgi, Marshal Nova, and Major Nelly. More information on these officers can be found in our BW CO guide here.
Once, Xylvania was a mighty power. Its fabled Iron Legion held half the world in a ruthless grip. But the cataclysm visited upon the Legion by the Solar Empire pushed Xylvania between the cracks of history. Its people became a casualty of the Frontier/Tundra power struggle; annexed by one side or the other, then left to nurse their resentment in the shadows
Xylvania resembles Germany due to similarities between its own history and Germany’s history during WWII, the units, soldiers, and commanding officers. The main color of Xylvania is blue.
Xylvania is led by Kaiser Vlad, Countess Ingrid, and Kommander Ubel. More information on these officers can be found in our BW CO guide here.
Many centuries ago, the Solar Empire was able to defeat Xylvania by the last-ditch use of a doomsday device. Though it reduced the Iron Legion to ashes, the cataclysm also inflicted great sacrifice on the Sols. Both peoples will never forget this day, and their individual legacies have been forged around it. To the Solar Empire, they must stand firm against a resurgence of the truly evil Xylvanians.
The Solar Empire resembles Japan in real life due to the soldiers, units, and the commanding officer. The islands near the Solar Empire resemble those of Japan. The main color of the Solar Empire is yellow.
The Solar Empire is led by Empress Lei-Qo. More information on her can be found in our BW CO guide here.
