Having great-looking themed bases is one of the best ways of creating a good-looking army. The terrain of the Pacific Theatre, with its unique colours and textures, provides plenty of interesting opportunities and challenges.

Staff Pacific Armies
Andrew's Ka-Mi Amphibious Tank Company

Andrew Haught is so enamoured with the idea of amphibious tanks, he is planning a Japanese army around 15 of them! He fills us in on his progress so far, including his unique painting approach.

Adding Improvised Armour
to an M4A3

Marine tankers in the Pacific would sometimes add a layer of wooden planks to their tanks, to protect them from magnetic mines. The soon-to-be-released resin-and-plastic M4A2 Sherman will include optional improvised wooden armour pieces in metal.

If you're keen to add improvised armour to the Sherman tanks you already have – such as the all-plastic M4A3 models – Dan shows you how.

UK Grand Tournament 2016

This year's UK Grand Tournament will take place at Battlefield Hobbies in October.

It is shaping up to be a fantastic tournament, and all 74 places for the tournament have now been booked.

Manawatu Duellists Society Panzerschreck XV 2016

Panzerschreck is the world’s oldest Flames Of War tournament. Exactly how old is perhaps subject to debate, because the first Panzerschreck was held in 2000, before the first edition rulebook was published, using the playtest rules. However, this year’s event is officially number ‘XV’, not ‘XVI’, leading some of us to suspect the numbering has inadvertently missed a ‘I’ somewhere along the way. Nevertheless, it is always a fantastic event, and a chance to play against several Battlefront staff members (for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing).
