Stripes - US Forces in World War III

One, Two, Three, Four, I Love The Marine Corps!

One, Two, Three, Four, I Love The Marine Corps!
Founded in 1775, The United States Marine Corps has always been the tip of the spear for American Forces. In the 20th century, they would distinguish themselves as some of the toughest warriors in the world. From the Battle of Belleau Wood to the shores of Okinawa, American Marines have always defended freedom and liberty. In the last 70 years they have won two world wars, and there will be no exception here! Whether they come from the sky in their rugged Huey transport helicopters or come from the sea in their massive AAVP7s, the US Marines will give the commies one hell of a fight.

HMMWV King of the Hill Competition - Part Two
The release of Stripes includes one of the most iconic vehicles of the US Army, the ubiquitous HMMWV. As the kit is so quick and simple to put together we decided to come up with a fun office challenge, were we each built one and then prepared to duke it out to see who would be “King of the Hill”.

Soviet Artillery

Soviet Artillery
The use of artillery was key to the Soviet army, and this is no different in Team Yankee. Artillery along with reconnaissance units enable Soviet units to get right where they want to be, up close and personal in a knife fight with the enemy, forcing opponents to move, abandoning prepared positions and cover, causing confusion and panic. Artillery then it switches fire and hammers reinforcements and enables success to be exploited.

This is the way of the Soviet Army.

Stripes Live Launch

Battlefront Customer Service Update

Battlefront Customer Service Update
During the year we came to realise that we had lost some of the personal side of dealing with our customers as we became overly reliant on technology and systems, that as good as they can be still are never quite the same as having a real person to help you out.

This led us to evaluate our customer service and direct ordering systems so we decided to take a step forward by taking a step back and put real people in the mix again. Starting immediately we will now have dedicated staff, before this was handled by the entire warehouse team, whose sole job it is to handle your orders and your customer service issues.
