Changes To The Book Pricing Regime
Over the last ten years we have constantly tried to add more value to our printed products while at the same time keeping the design and quality at the highest level. Due to a growth in our buying power  (thanks to your support and an ever-growing player base) we have recently secured a new long-term printing contract that allows us to print for a much lower price. These savings will be reflected in the marketplace by a lowering in price of our entire Flames Of War paper product range.

Tanks-A-Lot For Supporting The Early-war Sale
Thanks to everyone that took part in the recent Early-war Sale over the past couple of weeks. Already we have had plenty of feedback from customers that have received full or partial orders and the team in the factory is working on getting out out-of-stock items produced as soon as possible. Looking at the sale stats it is great to see so many new Soviet and German armies being built in preparation for Barbarossa!
