Armoured Fist Live Launch

Armoured Fist Live Launch....

Armoured Fist Landing Page
Armoured Fist is the next step for the British Army in Flames Of War. It takes the forces from Desert Rats and expands them to include the Valentine and Churchill infantry tanks and the Sherman heavy tank, as well as a powerful rifle company and a few new support options.

Salute 2018
Wow... what an amazing event Salute was! If you weren’t aware, Saturday 14th April, saw the staff of the UK office of Battlefront Miniatures attend one of the largest wargames shows held in the UK (we did plaster the event all over Facebook so check the links to our various groups to stay in the loop if you missed it!). 

We took a brand new stand with us, allowing a greater range of stock to be available for Flames Of War, Team Yankee and TANKS, plus our latest release; ‘Nam: The Vietnam War Miniatures Game.

Firestorm: Stripes - What Happened

Firestorm: Stripes - What Happened
With Phil Yates 
Now that Firestorm Stripes has reached its conclusion, Europe is left in a war-torn mess with the exhausted remains of NATO and Warsaw Pact forces thoroughly interleaved in a series of thrusts and counter thrusts.

Final Weekly Prize Winners!
Congratulations to Major H. Jones, our last random weekly prize winner.

Major H. Jones gets to pick a a Team Yankee Army Deal (and book) so he can start building his second (or third...) army.

In addition to the Weekly Draws we also have also been giving away prizes each week for any Featured Battle Reports we highlight on the Team Yankee website.

This week we have picked two winning battle reports and both of them were for the same reasons. A combination of a nice looking table, plenty of fine looking miniatures and some photoshop work on top that really helped to convey the action that was happening! Congratulations to Corsac and Stone. Click on their profiles below to check out their reports.

We will be in touch in the next few days to arrange your prizes.

Firestorm Stripes

Finally, we are still tallying up the results for the Limited Edition Club and Store prizes, but will have those announced next week.

Congratulations to everyone that picked up a prize during Firestorm: Stripes.

Team Yankee Forces
We are excited to announce that it is 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.

We've also added two Free lists with Bannon's Boys and Potecknov's Bears so you can see how it works and give it a try before you buy!

Updated 23rd of April: Volksarmee formations have now been added to the Team Yankee Forces site!

TANKS FAQ

TANKS FAQ
Over the past couple of months, we have been working a lot more closely with the community and one of the things that has been a high priority for us is to provide a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Today we are excited to present the Playtest version of the document. Because the FAQ has been a long time coming we wanted to make sure that as many of your questions were covered off as possible. So rather than presenting the first version of the FAQ as a completed document we wanted to involve the community as we go through our own internal playtesting process. In a few weeks once our process is complete, and we’ve had a chance to review your comments and questions we will issue the document as the first Official TANKS FAQ. Of course, in the meantime there is no reason you can’t use it as it stands now.

There has also been a restock of the range over the last couple of weeks so if you've been waiting to dive in to 'Nam then now as your change whilst the 25% off launch sale is still on.

Firestorm Tunisia - Forums....

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.

V4 Flames Of War

V4: 12 Months, 8 Books and Counting
A year ago we launched V4 to the world. It was the culmination of many man hours of work throughout the Design Studio, and the entire company. It was fair to say that like all new products that we release there was a mix of excitement and trepidation about how it would be received, especially given the (literally) game changing nature of V4. Now we find ourselves 12 months down the track with tens of thousands of games having been played and more tweets, comments and posts than we could ever hope to track, as well as small mountain of books and models in the hands of new players. We wanted to take a assessment on where V4 sits right now and where we thought it was going, and of course share it with you, our community.

V4: 12 Months, 8 Books and Counting...

Return Of The Gaming Mat
Last year we released our first Flames Of War double sided gaming mat. Customers with long memories will remember that we suffered from a number of issues outside our control including our manufacturing partner in China pulling a disappearing act, literally packing up their machines and moving without telling anyone.

Now we are ready to release a new version of the mat that incorporates a number of the improvements that customers suggested to us, ranging from some changes to the image on the mat through to how it was packed to avoid creases.
