Battlefront features the M42 for Fate of a Nation

Battlefront has a new featured article up for Fate of a Nation. This one's the M42 with twin 40mm guns.



Source

From the article:

Developed towards the end of the Second World War, the M19 was armed with two of the highly effective 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns mounted in an open-topped turret capable of traversing 360º.

With each gun capable of firing 120 rounds per minute, the 40mm rounds of the M2A1 Bofors proved devastating against both unarmoured ground targets and massed infantry attacks.

Board to Death posts Kings of Artifice review

Board to Death continues to try and review every game ever made. This time it's Kings of Artifice.



Source

From the review:

Kings of Artifice is a strategy board game for 2 to 4 players. The game is played in a series of building rounds, followed by one final crowning round. Victory Points (VP) are awarded for building structures during the game as well as at the end. In each game, two special scoring cards are drawn from a deck that allow players to gain bonus points by meeting certain conditions.

In the building rounds, the players summon their specialized characters onto the game board and employ them (using Action Points) to construct valuable structures such as Walls, Houses, Battlements, Towers, Palaces, Fountains, and Pastures. These are built from their supplies of colored building blocks. In addition to expanding their own kingdoms, the players can use their forces to hinder the progress of their rivals.

Alternative Armies released Winter Goblin House

Alternative Armies gets set for the holidays on your tabletop with the release of their Winter Goblin House terrain piece.



Source

From the release:

New for Flintloque and Slaughterloo

Cryptmass on Valon is a scary affair for most. Not like on our world where the giving of gifts softens the heart and promotes love to all Men. Oh, no. On the magicke world of Valon the festive season is called Cryptmass for a reason. That reason...the dead rise. From their crypts and coffins for two nightmarish days as Wylde Magicke seeps up from the depths of the world. In more civilised places such as Albion and Krautia there are plans and organised gangs who go, shovel and swords in hand, putting the dead back to rest but in Al-Garvey its a little different. The Goblins and Dark Elves take to their homes and hearths locking doors and windows and taking the teachings of the Catatonic Faith wait out the scratching at the shutters. Goblins often hang a dead Dodo outside their door in an effort to distract the risen dead. Silly really...how would they cook it?
