NZGT This week Blake joins me to assist in the running of the web and associated jobs. Mike and myself (Wayne) welcome him the team.

This week we have Product Spotlights featuring next week’s new release. These are all related to River Of Heroes. We have two new Gaming Sets covering the SS units featured in River Of Heroes. We spotlight the Panzer Kanonen SS-Wiking Panzer Aces and Sturmbannführer Fritz Biermeyer of Totenkopf SS-Panzerdivision. For the Soviets we have the T-34/85 obr 1944, the second improved model of the 85mm armed T-34 tank.

We also have the Results of the New Zealand Mid War Grand Tournament held two week ago in Auckland. 
The Panzerspähkompanie has been moved to the Official 1944-45 section the Briefings. Thanks to the Forum members for the feedback.

We also have a few older articles and Product Spotlights covering some recent intelligence briefings. Site Upgrades
I’d also like to mention that the website upgrades continue and this week the new online store has gone live. We are working our way through a few things that still need to be adjusted to work how we want, but feel free to have a browse and try it out.
