Canadian Nationals 2017
What a great time, the local players are very inviting to their visiting brothers-in-arms. The venue is wonderful and the local attractions are great.  Coming to the Canadian Nationals is always one of my favorite times of year. This year the local Ottawa and Toronto crowds really stepped up and came out in force to try to recapture the title for Canada.

Firestorm Red Thunder
TY Newspaper
Intelligence sources have released information that a number of senior Soviet commanders have been recalled to Moscow. Whether this is for a conference to discuss restarting the stalled offensive in Germany, or if this signals wholesale changes in the command structure is still unclear. What is certain is that the Politburo is unhappy that the predicted short and victorious war has begun to draw out with victory further away than it was a week ago.

Recent press releases from NATO are proclaiming a turning point in the war in Europe with the Soviet offensives blunted and their own attack towards Berlin progressing well. Meanwhile steadily-lengthening lists of missing and dead, along with a lack of detail about the progress of the advance in official reports have led to speculation that things are not progressing as well as they are being presented. Rumours of the imminent destruction of the British Army of the Rhine have led to protests and strikes in major British cities.

World War III is in your hands. Will the Soviets win, or will the Western Allies hold them back? By entering you results into the Beasts Of War Firestorm Campaign you will help us to write the history of Team Yankee as well as setting the scene for our follow-up campaign later this year with the release of Stripes. With four and half weeks to go time is running out for you to make your mark on the history of Team Yankee.

Registering is simple and you can add as little or as much detail to your Battle Reports as you like. Don't forget there are some cool prizes up for grabs just by participating.

Early and Late War Flames of War Update
Flames Of War version 4 has been out for a while now, with lots of games played, and lots of feedback given to Battlefront. We’ve pondered the things players have been saying and are suggesting the following changes to the adjustments that the 1939-1941 and 1944-45 rulebook makes to version 3.

With two full weeks of testing completed and the feedback coming in fast we are almost at the point where we can lock down the changes pending a final review. This week we have some minor changes with the addition of some missing items that you guys spotted as well as adding the High Speed Jet rule

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition

More Missions Pack

More Missions Update
Gamers have played many thousands of games since Team Yankee and Version 4 of Flames Of War were released, many of them played using the More Missions packs. With so many games being played, we’ve received lots of useful feedback on how the packs can be improved. After pondering the feedback and suggestions, we’ve made some changes and now we need you help in testing them.

We have an update to the More Missions Pack this week with the addition of the Contact mission as a replacement for Hasty Attack in the Battle Plans, and changed the Minefields entries to cover both Mid War and Early/Late War periods.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 10 August 2017
A new rules set always results in questions about how the finer points of the game should work so Lessons From The Front is the place to go to find answers to some of the harder questions.

These are living documents that we will update as often as possible but please bear in mind that whilst we listen to feedback in the forums (and other places) we need to take a considered approach before implementing any changes.

Fighting First Live Launch

Did you miss all the fun at our Fighting First Live Launch last week? Never fear you can scroll through everything at your leisure.

Check out the full range of Fighting First releases here...

Armored Rifle Platoon (Plastic)(UBX51)

Armored Rifle Platoon (Plastic)
Armoured rifle platoons have more weaponry available to them than
any other infantry in the world, with semi-automatic rifles, .30-calibre
light machine-guns, bazookas and a 60mm mortar. With this much
firepower and mobility, the platoon is amply equipped for both offensive and defensive operations. On the attack the riflemen assault while the covering fire of the half-tracks’ machine-guns keep the enemies’ heads down. In defence, their light machine-guns and mortar allow them to dominate the terrain around them.

Armored Rifle Platoon (Plastic)(UBX51)...

Armored Rifle Company HQ
There is never enough infantry in the Armored Divisions to go around, so support from armored infantry companies is always in high demand.

Armored Rifle Company HQ (US782)...

M3 Halftrack Platoon (Plastic) (UBX57)

M3 Halftrack Platoon (Plastic)
Even though the ‘blitz doughs’ have nicknamed it the ‘purple heart box’, the M3 Half-track is a versatile and resilient machine. However its body offers all-around protection, including an armoured shutter over the radiator and a bulletproof windscreen.

M3 Halftrack Platoon (Plastic) (UBX57)...

Rifle Company (Plastic)
Even in this modern, mechanised war, the infantry remain the backbone of the army—they don’t win battles on their own, but no war is won without them. The US ‘doughboys’ are not yet battle-hardened, but they are no slouches. Their lack of experience is partly overcome by their long and rigorous training.
