Desert Rats (FW241) Desert Rats (FW241)
The Desert Rats are the only thing standing in the way of Axis conquest of North Africa. Despite suffering repeated defeats at the hands of Rommel’s 
Afrika Korps, they remain undaunted. Their speedy Crusader and Honey tanks can run circles around their opposition, backed up by the heavier Grant squadrons. Their motorised infantry are equally adept in attack or defence. With support from the Royal Artillery and the Desert Air Force, they are a formidable and versatile force.

Desert Rats is an A4 hardback, full-colour 44-page book covering the British forces fighting North Africa during 1942-1943.

Afrika Korps (FW242)
The German Afrika Korps is a hard-fighting force of tough veteran troops who have won many battles and expect to win many more. Their Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks outclass the British tanks they face, and have been steadily upgraded to maintain their edge over the opposition. Their infantry are organised to have ‘few men, many weapons’, so they pack a ferocious punch whether facing infantry or tanks. These are backed by the famous ‘88’ dual-purpose anti-tank/anti-aircraft gun and the Stuka dive bomber.

Monty's Desert Rats (BRAB09) Monty's Desert Rats (BRAB09)
The eyes of the world are on the complex and bloody campaign unfolding in the Western Desert of Egypt and Libya. If the Axis can succeed in pushing the British out of Egypt, there will be nothing keeping them from the rich oil fields of the Middle East, and the strategically vital Suez Canal will open the back door to the Far East. The brave but battered soldiers of the Eighth Army hold the last line of defence against fascist conquest.

Rommel's Afrika Korps (GEAB14)
Under the leadership of Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel, the Deutsches Afrika Korps (or DAK) trounced the British Eighth Army time and time again. The ‘Desert Fox’, as he became known, gained an almost mythical status as a military genius to both friend and foe alike. Rommel owed his success to a combination of his own experience and hard-driving nature, and the superb troops he commanded. Serving as a Leutnant in the First World War, Rommel showed an aggressive style that led to spectacular victories over forces much stronger than his own.

4th Edition Launch Update

4th Edition Launch Update
with John-Paul
Let me begin by saying thank you to all, stores and gamers alike, who made the launch weekend such a wonderful success. It was the first time in our history so many events were run by so many stores and clubs around the world on the same day, and the feedback from everybody has been overwhelmingly positive. Now, with so many moving parts, there were some areas that did not quite go as planned. We have been hit by a few delays on some items. So today I am going to try and cover as many of these pending issues as possible, and clarify some other topics that still need answers.
