Red Thunder For Team Yankee Releases Tomorrow

There’s a new book coming out for Team Yankee. It’s called Red Thunder, and as you’d expect from them, they’re having a whole day dedicated to features for it. That day, by the way, is tomorrow. It starts pretty early, too. I mean, for many of us, it’s this afternoon, since it’s beginning on New Zealand time.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, we knew it was inevitable. The weekend has come to an end and we’re back at the start of the work week. Though, at least for me, this is no ordinary work week. CMON Expo is this upcoming weekend. If you’ll be in the Atlanta area, you should stop by and say, “hi.”
But before we get to that, we still have our regularly-scheduled posts to make. That includes today’s Terrain Corner.

As such, we have: Sci-Fi Scenery Added to TerrainCrate Kickstarter, Large Desert Building Available From Battlefront, Terminus Segments modular mat and District 5 Catwalks Available From Micro Art Studio, Heroic Maps’ St Olfryc’s Priory Bundle Now Available, and Cyber City Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Thursday Terrain Corner

I hope you’re excited for the weekend. I’m excited for the weekend (ok, you know I’m always excited for the weekend). Mostly because it looks like some figures I ordered a while ago will be here this weekend. Woo! Always happy to get new toy soldiers. But if I’m going to be using them, I should make sure my gaming table looks good, too. So let’s take a look at some terrain articles.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Battlefield in a Box: Desert Escarpments Available From Battlefront, Darkburg: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available, and Battlefield in a Box: Extra Large Dune Available From Battlefront.

Battlefront Features Afrika Korps Rifle Platoon For Flames of War

All those tanks and armored vehicles running around in North Africa still required regular troopers to go along with them. Tanks might be formidable, but they can’t do everything, and your average rifle-carrying soldier is still an invaluable part of the military effort. In this Flames of War article, Battlefront is featuring their Afrika Korps Rifle Platton.

Battlefront Features Panzer III Tank Platoon For Flames of War

The Panzer III is the quintessential German tank. Used in pretty much every theater during the war (at least where Germany was), it made up around 2/3 of their tank arsenal. What can you really say? It was able to get where it needed and had a decent gun on it. Now, you’ll be able to fill your Flames of War armies with them.

Battlefront Features Crusader Armoured Troop For Flames of War

It’s not just really thick armor that can make an armored vehicle safe. If your opponent can’t get a bead on you due to your speed, that’ll also help you stay live. That’s the philosophy behind the Crusader. It was quick and able to stay ahead of the panzers looking to target it. They were used to help protect the flanks of bigger formations. Now, they can do the same for your games of Flames of War.

Battlefront Features Grant Armoured Troop For Flames of War

During the fighting in North Africa, the British needed a tank that could match up to the German’s panzers. They found that in the form of the M3 Grant. Its gun and armor made it equal to its opponents in many ways. The one issue is that the tank was rather tall. So it was kind of hard to hide it. But still, they worked well. And a troop box of them will be making their way to your Flames of War tables.

Battlefront Features 17 pdr Anti-Tank Troop For Flames of War

The engagements in North Africa during WWII consisted of many different types of vehicles in the wide-open spaces of that desert land. With German panzer tanks around, it took a big gun to deal with them. That came in the form of the 17-pounder. Unfortunately, the original carriage couldn’t quite handle them. The remedy? Simply stick the gun on a 25-pounder carriage. That should work.

Friday Snippets

Well, after what seemed like two Thursdays in a row, we have made our way, finally, to Friday. And I, for one, welcome our new almost-weekend overlords. With any luck, your weekend will be filled with gaming. If not, I still hope it’s restful. But before we can get there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Final days for Castles & Crusades Kickstarter, New Selection of Peasants Available From Warlord Games, Geek & Sundry and Campaign Coins release TableTop gaming coins, and Battlefront Releases Afrika Korps Gaming Aids For Flames of War.

Battlefront Features Honey Armored Troop For Flames of War

I don’t know about you, but it seems that trying to use honey for armor wouldn’t really work out too well, especially in the desert. I mean, it’d get hot and run all over everywhere. *gets a note on my desk* Oooh, Honey is just the name of the tank.
… That makes a lot more sense, then. Anyway, if you’d like a whole bunch of Honey tanks in one, Battlefront has the set for you.

Battlefront Features Afrika Korps: Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon For Flames of War

Having big, formidable tanks in your army was a good way to win battles during WWII. Some of the biggest and toughest were Germany’s Tigers. They were originally going to be available for the Battle of El Alamein, but didn’t quite make it there. They did end up in Tunisia later, though. They can also be in your armies for Flames of War, since they’re available from Battlefront.

Friday Snippets

Hey kids. We have made it. It’s Friday at last. This certainly has been an eventful week. It’s also gone by quickly, at least for me. I hope everyone at Adepticon is having a good time. If you’re not there, I still hope you have a weekend of gaming planned. And if you’re going to be gaming all weekend, you should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Advanced Deployment’s Adepticon Sale Happening Now; Desert Rats Paint Set Available From Battlefront; Topside Minis Jutland Sets Released – 1/1800, 1/2400, and 1/3000 scales; Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm March Releases Arrive at PicoArmor; Afrika Korps Paint Set Available From Battlefront; Frazetta Miniatures Reaches Funding Goal; Color Quest Season 1 Reaches Funding Goal; New Quick Shades Washes Set Available For Pre-Order From The Army Painter; and Spring Sale Happening At Dark Art Studios.

Battlefront Features Rommel’s Afrika Corps For Flames of War

Well, we’ve had the Desert Rats book as well as the Monty’s miniatures set. We’ve also gotten the Afrika Corps book, so that just leaves Rommel’s miniatures. And that’s just what we have for you now from Battlefront for Flames of War.
Continue reading

Battlefront Features the Afrika Korps For Flames of War

I guess, if you play a game of Flames of War, you could have the British fighting against the British. To my knowledge, there’s nothing that says otherwise. But, really, people want to play the British versus the Nazis. And since we got a look at the Desert Rats book before, let’s take a look at the Afrika Korps book now.
Continue reading

Battlefront Features Desert Rats Book For Flames of War

The North African Front is sometimes neglected when it comes to the history of World War II. It was a long and dusty campaign of maneuver seeing the Desert Rats facing the Desert Fox. In this case, it was the rats that came out on top. The Desert Rats book from Battlefront gives you a good look at the forces involved, as well as how you can use them in your games of Flames of War.

Midweek Snippets

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going along at this break-neck pace, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Lion Tower Miniatures Launch First Kickstarter, New Statuesque Asylum and Starport figures and a new Statuesque Female Head size, Battlefront Releases Range Finder For Flames of War, Exiles of the Tetsu Clan Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, New ellipse bases from Micro Art Studio, New Norman Kite Shields Available From Tabletop-art, Fenris Games – Rise of the Draugr Up On Kickstarter, Battlefront Releases New Destroyed Markers For Flames of War, Broken Egg Games are coming to Europe, New Quad Mortar Platform Available From Kromlech, Acheson Creations and Evil Bob’s at Cold Wars March 17-19, New Desert Mission Token Set From Battlefront, Ouroboros Miniatures presents: Fey- The Celestial, and Atlantis Miniatures Launches 28mm Dwarf Minis Kickstarter.

Battlefront Features Battle of El Alamein set For Flames of War 4th Edition

While most people might think of events like D-Day or the island-hopping of the Pacific theater, the battles that took place all across North Africa are no less an important part of the WWII narrative. It’s those dusty battles that Battlefront looks at in their Battle of El Alamein: War in the Desert set for Flames of War 4th edition.

Battlefront Features 4th Edition Flames of War Rulebook

From time to time, games need a bit of a makeover. Years of time and thousands of games can find issues that weren’t very apparent from the beginning. Or perhaps things just feel they’ve gotten “stale.” Whatever reason a game might end up getting a new edition, it usually causes a stir with the gaming populace. In this article, Battlefront gives us a look at the 4th Edition rulebook for Flames of War.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The week continues to just crawl on by. Man, I’ve not felt a week has taken this long for quite a while. I feel like I should be typing up the Friday Snippets instead of the Thursday Terrain Corner. But here we are. What do you suppose the chances are that the weekend will be like that? Where Saturday afternoon I’ll be going, “Geeze! Isn’t it supposed to be Monday by now!?” Probably very low. But, in the meantime, let’s make your gaming tables look as good as possible.

The weekend is over. I’m sure many of you aren’t all that happy about the. I can’t say I’m thrilled, either. But waddyagonnado? Time marches on! And so should we.

Thursday Terrain Corner

It’s Thursday and I’m at home. The Office Move continues, with much of the furniture making its way to the new building. But since the new place isn’t quite ready yet, many of us are working from home. Besides, trying to write while movers are going up and down the halls with stuff is a bit distracting.

Speaking of buildings, we’ve got a bunch of terrain stories for you today. One of the biggest Terrain Corners I can remember. So let’s get to it.

Today we have: New Webshop Open For Last Sword Miniatures, Battlefield in a Box: Medium Desert House Available From Battlefront, Mage Company Features 12 Realms: Dungeonland Scenery Packs, Classic Columns Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Champion’s Bowl Game Mat Available From Warzone Studio, New Gaming Mats Available From Frontline Gaming, Sailpower multi-scale Ships Up On Kickstarter, New Normandy Terrain From Najewitz Modellbau, Battlefield in a Box: Desert Escarpments Available From Battlefront, Manorhouse Workshop & RGFX collaboration: The Dark Crypt (Fog Tower), Valdisfjell The West Door Map Available From Heroic Maps, Warland Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, Battlefield in a Box: Desert Palms Available From Battlefront, and New Orc Barrels Available From Kromlech.

Thursday Terrain Corner

Midweek Snippets

The week rolls along (and I’ve got Ace of Spades playing), so you know I’m working at a pretty fevered tempo. If I’m going to keep up this pace as I work on TGN stuff and then get busy with some work on (redacted), I need to get a good meal of bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what we’ve got here.

Battlefront Features East German Mot-Schützen Platoon For Team Yankee

You know, you want to have your troops well-armed to take on numerous potential adversaries. The East German Mot-Schützen platoons certainly are. From several different types of anti-tank weapons to numerous anti-infantry weapons, including grenade launchers, they can take on just about anything the West can throw at them.

Battlefront Features SA-9 Gaskin SAM Platoon For Team Yankee

In modern warfare (and it has actually been this way since about WWII), you have to make sure that enemy air power doesn’t hinder your ground forces too much. You can have your own planes try and neutralize them, but your aircraft can’t be everywhere at once. As such, having anti-aircraft elements in your forces is imperative. That can take the form of Surface-to-Air Missile launchers. And that’s just what we’ve got here for Team Yankee.

Flames of War 4th Edition Available For Pre-Order

Battlefront has opened up pre-orders for the 4th edition of Flames of War. Well, that doesn’t really give you all the info.

So if you want to lock in the next several month’s worth of releases, now’s your chance to get your name on that list.

Midweek Snippets

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And if we want to keep up our strength, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Mighty Meeples: Ghostbusters Collection Released by Cryptozoic; 4th Edition Preview Flames of War Preview: New Paint Sets, Spray Cans, Token Sets and Gaming Aids; Eye for an Eye: Arena Coming To Kickstarter; Acheson Creations announces two “Big Events” for February 2017; Numenera Audio Collection from Plate Mail Games; The Dragon Tray Up On Kickstarter; Aenor Miniatures Releases New Zombie Survivor; New Line of SCI-FI Miniatures by RBJ Game Company; Dice Base: Master GM Screen Up On Kickstarter; Black Earth tabletop wargame coming on IndieGoGo in February; F’aa’thum, Greater Stygian Wardemon of Fate Available From Kromlech; Baueda New DBA 3.0 Norse Irish Army Pack is Now Available; Elder Dice Coming to Kickstarter; and New Circular Ruler From Micro Art Studio.

Battlefront Features T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie for Team Yankee

During wartime, you will often see equipment get hasty upgrades, looking to make those particular items better than they were coming right off the line. In this case, several T-55 tanks were upgraded to have new fire control systems as well as extra armor against enemy anti-tank weapons. The result is the T-55AM2, which you can bring to the tables of Team Yankee. Check them out here.

Battlefront Features East German Mot-Schützen Heavy Weapons For Team Yankee

Infantry are very versatile out on the battlefield. They can go through most forms of terrain, search buildings, hold ground, and be armed with many different weapons in order to take on a variety of enemy formations. When enemy vehicles bear down, it’s time for the heavy weapons crews to step up and protect the rest of the platoon.

Battlefront Features Mot-Schützen Kompanie For Team Yankee

So, we’ve seen a couple different vehicles lately for the East German forces in Team Yankee, but those APCs need to carry around someone, right? Well, that’s where the Mot-Schützen Kompanie comes in, of which we get a deeper look at in this article.

Battlefront Features Spandrel AT Platoon For Team Yankee

Versatility is important in production. If you can create an item that can be quickly adapted to fill different roles, that’s good, as it will increase production speeds since you don’t have to keep retooling entire things from scratch. The 9P148 Konkurs uses the same chassis as the BRDM-2 Recon Vehicle. However, it sports a set of missiles on top.
