Sturer Emil This week sees the first of our Product Spotlights for Mid-war Monsters. We get the ball rolling with a look at what is inside the Mid-war Monsters book and look at the first two models, the Soviet KV-3 heavy tank and the German Sturer Emil heavy tank-hunter.

We also make Official the Finnish and SS-Nordland & Nederland Intelligence Briefings. We introduce a new Intelligence Briefing on the Estonian-SS Grenadier division and we review two more of Osprey Publishing’s recently released books.
We also have new and updated events below and a tournament report from Poland.

You may have noticed the forum has been up and down over the last few days, we apologise for this. Our web development team at Forth Media are installing a new version of the Forum, but as with anything like this there are a few bugs to iron out. Once it is up and running properly we’ll be able to automatically prune the forum and in the future add a Personal Message function.
