If you have written an article on Flames of War tactics and would like to see it included here, let me know. If the fit is right, I'll do my best to give it the same clean layout you see on the other articles posted here (you may need to provide your own illustrations if you want them). I can also produce layout work for additional article types, including Flames of War scenarios so long as I can post them on this site.
