3rd Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive

3rd Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive
We are pleased to announce the annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive.

Every year Marine Toys for Tots sets out on their mission to bring the joy of Christmas and send the message of hope to America's less-fortunate children. We are proud this year to once again stand behind them especially during these trying times caused by Covid-19.

This year Battlefront and Battle Rankings will hold a competition, in which stores will host a 1 day tournament, mega-battle or campaign with all participants going into the draw. Full details below

Iron Cross: Beachhead to Bocage
September 5 and 6 saw the third iteration of my Iron Cross Flames of War competition. When Battlefront was in the middle of releasing their D-Day books, I decided to run a Late War comp around this most famous of campaigns. At the heart of each of my competitions is a team element (axis versus allies in this case); however the team nature is pitched at the strategic level while the individual match-ups take care of the tactical level.

Army Building With The Heavy Assault Group Starter Box

Army Building With The Heavy Assault Group Starter Box
With the launch of the Bagration: Soviet release, I thought I would look at both new starter boxes to see what sort of force you can put on the table. This article covers the Heavy Assault Group starter box. This box is ideal for someone either starting out or for the veteran player who needs to add some additional firepower to their existing force. For the new player, it opens the door to playing Flames Of War without needing to buy, assemble or paint too much and get into playing the game quicker.

Assembling the City Ruins
We've put a guide on how to build the brand new plastic City Ruins. The contents of this box are easy to put together and with a little planning you can create a wide variety of interesting looking buildings. If you want to create a larger, or centrepiece building for your forces to fight over, try combining two or more sets together for even more possibilities.

Bagration: Soviet Spotlight

Bagration: Soviet Spotlight
With the D-Day series of books coming to a close it is time to shine the spotlight on the Eastern Front. The first in our series of three Bagration books is Bagration: Soviet covering the Soviet forces on the Eastern Front in 1944.This book is jam packed full of interesting Soviet Formations and Units, as well as plenty of background, and three new river crossing themed missions.

The Bagration: Soviet book starts with background covering the pivotal events of Operation Bagration, the Soviet Army’s massive offensive against the Germans centred on Byelorussia that began on 22 June 1944.

Phil Petry
In Memoriam
Last week the Battlefront New Zealand team suddenly lost a member of our extended family when Phil Petry passed away unexpectedly of natural causes. Phil’s gaming background goes back decades but most Flames Of War and WWIII: Team Yankee players in NZ knew him for his beautifully painted armies and his warm personality. That’s not to say he couldn’t play hard on the tabletop as he enjoyed a win as much as the next person, but he always played in such a way that everyone could enjoy the game.

He was also an immensely passionate board gamer, helping the GF9 team as a lead play tester for many of the games that grace our shelves (and some yet to come out).

Phil Petry

He had an analytical and insightful view that helped to refine and improve our games and was always keen to get involved and try out some new game mechanic.

His passion for boardgames and generosity extended so far that he even volunteered his gaming group to travel to Gen Con in 2016 to assist the team with the launch of Star Trek Ascendency, where they taught hundreds of players over the course of the weekend, whilst still finding time to squeeze in a little shopping.

Phil’s quiet but proud contribution to our shared hobby will be greatly missed, whether you knew him or not.

~The Battlefront New Zealand team 

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 22 October 2020
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.
