Hi Everybody,Some of you may have noticed the usual weekly update of the site is up a day early. This is because all the staff at Battlefront HQ will be testing out some stuff for our upcoming series of books and models for Operation Market Garden. We’ll be playing a series games over Thursday and Friday and will not have time for any real work.
This week we feature three Product Spotlights for next week’s releases (out Saturday 27 May). We also finally complete the Intelligence Briefings on German Panzerdivision reconnaissance forces with the Panzerspähkompanie and we have corrected and updated the Soviet Guards Cossacks Briefing and moved it to the official section.
|Also Phil takes a look at another of Osprey’s new releases for May.|
Finally Chris and myself fought out a battle using the new forces from River Of Heroes.
