Churchill Tank Troop (BBX48)

Churchill Tank Troop (Plastic) (BBX48)
The Churchill infantry tank is designed to move at a walking pace ahead of the infantry, knocking out enemy machine-guns as they advance, secure behind its heavy armour. A British infantry division can expect a full brigade of 180 of these powerful tanks attached to it in support of its attacks!

Free Nations: Canadian, French, Dutch and Australian Forces In WWIII

Free Nations: The French Are Coming
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).

In store this weekend you will find the first of the new French releases in stores!

'Nam Sale: Operation Buffalo
Operation Buffalo began on July 2nd and it inflicted the most amount of casualties on a single Marine Rifle Company of any operation carried out in Vietnam. What started out as straight forward turned into an absolute meat grinder for both sides. Alan Graham talks all about Operation Buffalo in an article here.

Read all about Operation Buffalo here...

Because of the timing of Alan's article and the actual events of Operation Buffalo we've decided to hold a sale on part of the 'Nam range! We are giving 25% off the entire North Vietnamese Regular Army Infantry range (excludes the Unit Card Pack and Local Forces) for the rest of the month. If you've been eyeing up an NVA unit that you've always wanted or are even looking to start a new army then this a great opportunity to take advantage of.

Check out the NVA range on the 'Nam website here...


Building a US Army For Nam
Shane Lindley who writes for No Dice, No Glory was inspired to build a US ‘Nam Force. Bit of texting and googling and his adventure began alongside his wargaming buddy who would be building a PAVN force. Taking elements inspired by Full Metal Jacket and iconic units of the era, Shane has written all about his force and getting the project finished.

Fate Of A Nation Shipping Now!
We are pleased to announce that if you made an order over on the Fate Of Nation website then the orders have begun shipping.

The 1967 Six Day War and 1973 Yom Kippur or October War were epic in scale and brutal in intensity. The stakes were high for all sides. For Israel it was a matter of survival. If the Syrians or Egyptians broke through they could be in Israeli towns in less than an hour. For the Egyptians and Syrians it was a matter of credibility. Failure could bring down either government.

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.
