FlameCon 2011
This year we have decided to ramp up the normal Grand Tournament experience with the addition of some new events, a catered dinner, and some evening activities. Here’s some quick information about these events. More news about each event will be forthcoming in the next few weeks as we finalise things on our end.

Enhancing Rural Roads
Our Battlefield in a Box Rural Roads are ready to use right out of the box without an additional work but with a little extra effort, any customer can make their roads more in theater to a more specific area of operations. In this article, we’ll look at enhancing our Rural Roads to fit North Africa, Italy, Pripyet Marshes and the Battle of the Bulge.

Spotlights
Tobruk HMG Nests (XX706)
These Nests were initially designed to represent the Australian and Italian Tobruk Pits from Hellfire and Back, however we thought that they looked so good it would be a great idea to create a few extra gunners so that they could represent HMG Nests for a wide variety of forces.

Universal Carrier (BR210)
The Universal Carrier is the name give to the collection of vehicles that faithfully served with the British and Commonwealth armies in every theatre during the course of the Second World War. It even found its way into the Red Army as part of the Lend-Lease program.

Panzer IV D Platoon (GBX48)
The role of the Panzer IV was to provide close support by firing high explosive (HE) to suppress enemy positions. The design of the Panzer IV begun in January 1934; three companies Rheinmettal-Borsig, Krupp and MAN each produced their own designs. The Krupp design designated VK2001/K proved the most acceptable; the first production version of the vehicle begun to appear in 1936.

75/27 Cannon Platoon (IBX06)
One of the most common and oldest guns in use by the Italian army during the Second World War was the 75/27 cannon. It was originally a German Krupp export model adopted by the Italian army in 1906. Despite its age, the 75/27 was of sound and sturdy construction; an attribute that saw it stay in service until 1943.

L3/35 (IT001)
The L3/35 tankette was a tiny armoured vehicle that was obsolete by the outbreak of the war. Unfortunately they made up the majority of the armour available to Italians in 1940.
