Wargames Illustrated came along to the Battlefront UK Open Day on June 30th where we were showing off plenty of cool new stuff that would be hitting the market over the coming months, along with running a series of tournaments and other gaming events.

Whilst they were there they interviewed event organiser Tim Harris about what was happening on the day. They also sat down with Peter Simunovich, the Battlefront Miniatures Group Chairman about what is upcoming for Flames Of War and Team Yankee.

VAB Mephisto Anti-tank Platoon (TFBX04)
The VAB Mephisto (VCAC - Véhicule de Combat Anti-Char) is an anti-tank vehicle that mounts the Franco-German HOT anti-tank guided missile system. This powerful wire-guided anti-tank missile is capable of knocking out any Warsaw Pact tank from outside the tank’s effective gun range.

French VAB mounted infantry battalions have 24 Milan anti-tank guided missile systems available in support.

Free Nations: Canadian, French, Dutch and Australian Forces
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 ANZAC forces and coming soon will be the Dutch and French ranges. Check out all the releases and related articles over on the Free Nations Landing Page.

'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.

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.
