Battlefields: Now Available in Print On Demand

While having the digital version of a gaming book is great (you can carry it on any device, they’re usually pretty easy to search through, and you can have a whole library in the palm of your hand), some people like to have the actual book. I’m included in that (a book’s batteries never run low just as you’re trying to look something up). For those that want a print version of Battlefields: From Broadswords to Bullets, you can now get just that.

New Polish Army Releases For Bolt Action Available

The Polish had quite a rough time during WWII. They were the first targeted by Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. And, despite their best efforts, were no match for the German war machine.

New Axemaidens for SAGA Available From Brother Vinni

Most of the time, the figures from Brother Vinni are system-agnostic. But, in this case, they’re for SAGA, the dark ages game of combat and might. They have released a new set of 4 Axemaidens. And I’m guessing they’re not just waving those axes because their Viking husbands forgot to take out the trash again.

Battlefront Launches ‘Nam Website, Has Sale on Stock

My dad was drafted for the Vietnam war. Though he never ended up in-country, he did train to drive an APC. Considering what I learned later during a Vietnam War History class that I took, I’m glad he didn’t end up over there. It probably wouldn’t’ve gone well. The Vietnam War is one that’s not often talked about in gaming circles. But Battlefront is looking to change that with ‘Nam, their minis game set during that conflict. They’ve got a new website up and running, and they’re celebrating with a sale on everything in the shop.

Achaean Archers, Libyan Close Fighters + Nubian/Kushite Close Fighters now Available For Hail Caesar

Warlord Games tends to run the whole gamut of times for their games. Hail Caesar is their game that spans the most.

Ostfront Releases Missile Threat (Modern Air Combat) Rules

I’d sort of always wanted to be a fighter pilot. My eyes have never been good enough for that sort of thing, but it was one of those dreams I had in the back of my mind as a kid.

It’s a new set of air combat rules by Ostfront that looks to accurately recreate air battles from the past 60 years. You can get your copy now (aviator glasses sold separately).

Plastic French Cavalry Single Frames Now Available For Black Powder From Bolt Action

Box sets are handy when you want to get an entire unit of figures at once. But what about when you just need a single figure? Maybe one got lost or busted or you want to customize your forces just a little bit. It can be annoying to have to get a whole box just for a single fig. Thankfully, Black Powder players looking to just get single sprues of French Cavalry are in luck. You can now buy individual frames from Warlord Games.

Normandy: the Beginning of the End Tactical War Game Up On Kickstarter

The storming of the beaches at Normandy. It’s arguably one of the most important days in world history.

Another day, another army release from Warlord Games. They certainly are taking no prisoners when it comes to new releases this week.
