Hi Everybody,As you may have noticed the site is undergoing some changes at the moment. We are widening the site and putting the article list up the side where it is easier to see. We are also changing the Online Store and this has had the first of its changes applied. This new pop-up menu gives you all the main Online Store categories at a glance. More changes are on-going and these will appear over the next few weeks (such as how the products are displayed inside the Online Store).
This week we prepare for next week’s new releases with Product Spotlights on three releases and Design Notes on River Of Heroes, the last book in our series on Operation Bagration.
We also look at the first three books of the May batch of Osprey’s new releases.
|As promised when Scott Elaurant’s article on Major Robert Kästner first went up we now have Warrior rules and an Intelligence Briefing for Kampfgruppe Kästner.|
Two Intelligence Briefing also move to the Official section of the Briefings. These are the Panzerpionierkompanies and the Sicherung & Walküre Intelligence Briefings.
Finally we have two new Events.
The new Feldgendarmerie miniatures for the Sicherungskompanie will be available soon. This week we take a look at what you will get.
