We have two new Intelligence briefings for you. One contains the promised German Sicherungs and Walküre companies mentioned in Hammer and Sickle, the other covers German Panzerpionierkompanies, both armoured and Unarmoured.

We have the second of our Hammer and Sickle scenarios, this one features Sicherungs troops from the new briefing.

Mike takes a look at what he’ll be taking to the New Zealand Mid War GT.

Finally we’ve been sent a batch of new releases from the nice people at Osprey Publishing and some of the crew review them.

With the release of the Sicherungs and Walküre Intelligence Briefing this week some of you will notice the Feldgendarmerie Platoon. Don’t fear we’ll have news on how to order these miniatures through our Special Order catalogue next week. Chris is working on the pack contents even as I type this.
Remember if you haven’t filled out our Poll yet get in soon so you don’t miss out on a chance to win the fabulous prizes on offer.
