The Battlefront UK Open Day is creeping ever closer and we are down to the last few days before the big day. Hopefully you have already got your plans sorted and your tickets bought for what will be a great day of gaming, checking out loads of new stuff that the team will be dying to show off, as well as asking the guys the hard questions about what's happening for Flames Of War and Team Yankee (as well as the rest of our product ranges).

Right: Jonathan Peace from the UK team has set himself the ambitious challenge of painting this army in time to use it at the event. Good Luck!

Tickets are available here....

Painting The Exclusive Doctor Who Models
For the Battlefront UK Open Day everyone who attends will be getting two Doctor Who figures, one in 32mm that is perfect for use with GF9's amazing board game Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks, and one in 15mm standing on a Chieftain tank.

James Brown, whose work has graced many of Battlefront's books jumped at the opportunity to paint these great miniatures was also kind enough to write a reference on how he painted the miniatures to look as though they had just stepped out of the Doctor Who episode, The Magician's Apprentice.

Musings of a School Miniatures Club Teacher
When Alan first heard of Flames Of War he jumped straight in buying his first miniatures and playing his first games. Jumping forward to today, Alan has decided to share his story of how he started a Flames Of War club at the school he teaches at in Effingham County Middle School and developed it to where it is now, with the kids playing, building, painting miniatures and loving it!

Canadian Call Signs

Canadian Call Signs and Decals
In this article Daniel takes us through Canadian Call signs and how the tanks were marked and organised in 1985, first hand from someone who was there and is still is (in the Canadian Army that is). Chris also joins in showing how you can actually model these marking on your miniatures using our decal sheets.

ANZAC Painting Templates
In Team Yankee the Australian and New Zealand forces found themselves directly embroiled in the latest global conflict on fields far more foreign than they had ever expected. In order to help you replicate how we've painted them in Free Nations we've uploaded PDF templates for you use along with the paint colors we used.

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.

Fate Of A Nation

Fate Of A Nation

Fate Of A Nation Book Spotlight
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.

Fielding a Bishop Field Troop
The release of Armoured Fist has given players a wealth of options to field in their British Army, from the mighty Churchill lumbering across the battlefield to the trusty Priest sitting back and lobbing shells.

We've had a number of requests and suggestions from players about how to field the Bishop so we thought we would turn it into an Unofficial Unit Card.

Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel

Building Churchill's Wall Of Steel
During the Armoured Fist Live Launch Chris wrote a short article about the Churchill Armoured Squadron he was very tempted to build. Despite having way too many half-started, half-finished and almost complete armies Chris has finally caved in to the pressure and started thinking about how to build them while also giving a touch of individuality.
