Armoured Fist - British Forces In The Desert 1942-43
Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel

Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel
During the Armoured Fist Live Launch Chris wrote a short article about the Churchill Armoured Squadron he was very tempted to build. Despite having way too many half-started, half-finished and almost complete armies Chris has finally caved in to the pressure and started thinking about how to build them while also giving a touch of individuality.

Battlefront UK Open Day
June 30th 2018 Cleve Lodge, Long Eaton,
Derbyshire NG10, UK.
When we announced the UK Open Day the end of June seemed so far away but now it is just around the corner. Have you booked your leave passes and organised your gaming group yet because we would love to see you and your friends at the event.

Last week we were able to show off the exclusive Doctor Who models that attendees will be getting as part of the swag bag, this week we have updated images of them painted! James has done a magnificent job on both the 15mm Doctor on a Chieftain tank model, as we as the 32mm board game sized version.

Battlefront UK Open Day

Next week we also expect to have some more information about the global painting competition that we are going to be running in conjunction with the event. Stay tuned for more information.

Free Nations: Canadian, French, Dutch and Australian Forces In WWIII
Free Nations: Canadian, French, Dutch and Australian Forces In WWIII Free Nations - Book Spotlight
The world of Team Yankee continues to expand, and our newest book adds four more nations to the roster of forces with which to play. Free Nations started as an idea to add some of the forces of the smaller NATO nations, but grew into something much bigger with four western nations covered (well, technically five if you choose to run your ANZACs as New Zealanders). Wayne looks at Free Nations and all the different nations in the book.

Know Your T-55
Earlier this year we released the much-anticipated plastic T-54/T-55 tank, one of the most widely used tanks in the world. In Team Yankee you can currently field the T-55AM2 variant with your East German forces in Volksarmee, or the T-54 with your NVA (North Vietnamese Army) in ‘Nam, and very shortly the Syrians and Egyptians in Fate Of A Nation. Today we take a look at the history of the T-55 and how to get the most out of these venerable tanks.

Team Yankee Forces

Team Yankee Forces
We are excited to announce that Forces is now available for Team Yankee! Because Team Yankee (and V4 Flames Of War) work a little differently to previous versions of Flames Of War, there have been a number of changes made to how Forces work so even you veterans should take a few seconds to read this basic primer.

New Update: Leopard formations have now been added to the Team Yankee Forces site!

Blitz And Peaces: Team Yankee USSR Vs US Battle Report

TANKS Spotlights

Soviet TANKS Previews
It is time for the Soviet juggernaut to once again be unleashed on the TANKS world. Like the British, the Soviets benefited from the Lend Lease program and received Stuart and Lee tanks from the US, as well as Valentine and Churchill tanks from the UK. Of course they had plenty of their own designs including the fearsome KV, the bane of many a Panzer commander as well as an earlier version of the T-34 that was being manufactured in Stalingrad whilst the fighting drew ever closer. Check out these sneak peeks before they release in August and September.

No Dice, No Glory -  Firestorm Tunisia
The team over at No Dice, No Glory are running their own Firestorm campaign for Flames Of War in Mid war, set in North Africa. Taking cues from our own recent Firestorm and with their own map they'll be taking battle reports players submit from their local clubs and around the world to determine how battle lines move and story develops. The Campaign starts on April 14th with new updates every two weeks. You can find full details on their website and forums in the links below. Also check out their terrain article.

Firestorm Tunisia - Terrain
The terrain in Tunisia is rugged, unique, and had a major influence on the battles fought there.  Several new terrain features are introduced for Firestorm Tunisia.  Get ready to encounter vast Salt Beds otherwise known as tank death traps; Rocky Ground that makes it impossible to dig in; Heavy Scrub that is perfect for hiding an ambush; and entrenched, dry water-ways called Wadis that form a natural and formidable defence. Heavy spring rains would then transform these difficult terrains to nearly impassable.

Firestorm Tunisia - Units
One of the exciting features of a Firestorm campaign is the use of additional “free” units that are added to players’ forces for each battle. These additional troops represent the combat power associated with the units fighting on the campaign map – the more units attacking on the map, the greater the force attacking on the battle table.

Be My Valentine

Be My Valentine
With the release of Armoured Fist, Ryan has been drawn to building an army of Valentines, not just because they’re getting new plastic models but also due to the fact that they look awesome. In this article he explores how he will go about building an army of Valentines as well as what tactics he plans to use with this force.

British Shermans in the Desert
The early North African battles were a constantly evolving challenge for nations who were learning the true merits and flaws of their tactics and technology, which had been brought to the boil again since the last Great War. Harsh lessons were dealt and received to Axis and Allied troops alike under the unforgiving Saharan sun.

Building a North African Battlefield

Building a North African Battlefield
It probably comes as no surprise that over the past year or so we have been playing a lot of games with a North African feel as we release Afrika Korps through Armoured Fist.

Building a good battlefield is key to ensuring that players have a fun game, with a variety of tactical challenges. Thanks to the Battlefield in a Box range of pre-painted terrain I've got plenty of options to choose from as well.

So what could a North African battlefield look like?
