Battlefront Special Announcement


Dear Customers and Fellow Gamers.

You don’t need us to tell you that things are very different at the moment to the way they were a month ago, both for us at Battlefront and the world at large. While this does give us plenty of hobby time, it also means we have to change the way we do things for a time.

The future's still very bright for our hobby! We have a range of exciting new releases upcoming including, but definitely not limited to the following...

Share Your Hobby
Battlefront Lockdown Competition

Lockdown Hobby Competition

Across the world there are people stuck at home, making the best out of a strange situation by spending time doing what they love – building and painting models.

We wanted to launch a competition to reward you for your hard work, but more importantly to encourage you to share what you are doing with other Flames Of War and WWIII: Team Yankee players.

Each day we will post a new Announcement on the Flames Of War and WWIII: Team Yankee Facebook Groups. Here you can comment with a picture of what Flames Of War or WWIII: Team Yankee models (or terrain) you are working on – doesn’t need to be finished, just whatever you are working on.

Each week we will pick some of the images and compile an article on the website showcasing the best, the most interesting, intriguing or just out downright cool, to share with the world.

We will also pick four comments (which show some great hobby action going on) each week to win a Platoon Box of your choice. If you want to maximise your chances of winning something, comment your progress each day.

So get started, take a photo of what you are working on today and comment in the daily Announcement post.

WOW! We are absolutely blown away by how many of you jumped into Thursdays Announcement and replied with a picture of what you are working on. THANK YOU!

Half the Studio are currently sitting, working from home, and to see so many of you working on hobby projects gave us a lift – we are also envious as we wish we were doing the same thing!

To recognise the great effort on day one, we have picked a bonus winner - Davide Fornasari - thanks for sharing your table shot, you are our bonus winner. Email [email protected] and let us know what Platoon Box you would like and we will get it sorted out asap.

Free Freight
To help support those of you that are self-isolating we are removing our freight charges for all customers in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Customers in the rest of the world will get free freight on orders of USD$75 or more. You may not be able to get to your local store at the moment, but at least you can enjoy the rest of our wonderful shared hobby.

Stay at home and Play Flames Of War and WWIII Team Yankee

Stay Home and Play Flames Of War and WWIII Team Yankee
With Covid-19 keeping us all at home, here’s some ideas on how we can still keep playing while we stay at home. I’ll start by addressing the most obvious difficulty: not having an opponent. I have several ideas on how to get around that! Most of these ideas are most definitely not my own, in fact some of them come from Donald Featherstone’s classic Solo Wargaming from way back in 1973. Others come from the many useful solo wargaming sites that you can find in a quick web search.

Solo Missions for Flames Of War
Normally, you'd expect to play Flames Of War with a real flesh-and-blood opponent. However, at the moment that option isn't available to us. To help remedy this, I wrote some ideas on how to play a regular pickup game without an oppenet, or devise your own scenarios to play against and AI opponents.

Updated: Mission Two for the Americans and Germans now added!

Working With Thermo Plastic

Working With Thermoplastic
With the release of D-Day: British comes the first of our Thermoplastic figures, the British Airborne. Since Thermoplastic is a relatively new technology, and as working with it is slightly different to any of our other plastic figures, it’s worth taking you through a few primers on how Thermoplastic behaves and how you can get the most out of our new figures.
