|As another month comes to an end we have a number of article and new items for your entertainment. We have Finn, Website and Wargames Illustrated news as well as articles on the Soviet’s 1944 strike against the Finns, a revised Intelligence Briefing for the 16. Luftwaffe Felddivision and the German Pionierkompanie Intelligence Briefing moves to the Official Briefings section.|
We also have a report from the Australian Mid War Championship.
But first some news from John-Paul:
The Finns are Coming!
Thanks to everyone who has voiced their opinion about the Finnish Intelligence Briefing. I have to admit I am impressed by the passionate response from all the Finn players out there. As I mentioned the list is basically done so I have asked the Studio team to complete their final internal playtesting and graphic design work before we put it up on the site. At this stage we should have all of this completed within a few weeks so we are targeting a release of the 28th May.
During the coming week you will see some visual and navigation changes to the site. We are preparing to upload the first wave of changes and test them out from Monday next week. The initial wave is simple changes to width and navigation. The following waves will include a host of other updates which will get added in stages to avoid both potential issues impacting on the site as a whole and to allow us to make sure it all works as planned before we reach the point of no return. We are trying to learn from our experience the last time we did this so that we get both new and improved without the “new site” issues us and many other companies always seem to encounter.
The new Feldgendarmerie miniatures for the Sicherungskompanie will be available soon. This week we take a look at what you will get.
