Battlefront UK Open Day
June 30th 2018 Cleve Lodge, Long Eaton, Derbyshire NG10, UK.

Are you going to the Battlefront UK Open Day? Make sure you get along for some sweet swag and a day of fun games as well as a chance to meet the Battlefront staff!

Today we've updated the event page with images of our model of the Doctor riding a Chieftain which will be given to everyone who comes along to the Open Day (along with the 28mm version for players of the board game). He is striking a pose perfect for anyone about to get down to the serious business of having an axe battle!

Battlefront UK Open Day

Also to go along with our 'Nam game there is a Fate Of A Nation demonstration game. Tim and Gareth have planned their forces for a show down in the Valley Of Tears and are building the armies that you will get a chance to play with.

Find out more about the Valley Of Tears here ...

Got a question you want to ask the team? Please submit your questions for Peter, John-Paul, Phil and Wayne, to our European Customer Service Team by Saturday 16th June and we'll do our best to get them answered. Stay tuned for more information on the activities happening on day both at the show and online.

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.

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!

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.

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 defense.  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?
