After several weeks of intense shelling and night raids by the Luftwaffe, Hitler’s army has made its move. Key locations across the south English coast now lay in German hands. HRM George VI is expected to make an official statement to the nation later on this evening, but officals from parliament have been quoted as saying “Keep calm and carry on.”

|The Lost Oasis:|
Pimping Your Desert Battlefield in a Box Sets
My favourite part of the fighting in North Africa has always been the battle for the Sahara, waged between the remote outposts in southern Libya a thousand miles south of the famous battlefields of Gazala, Tobruk, and El Alamein. Here the desert was the master of the battlefield, dictating the fates of the soldiers fighting there.

With the introduction of these new vehicles, the box sets include stowage sprues so you can personalise each vehicle to really make them stand out on the battlefield. In this article we take a look at these sprues and provide a guide of what can go where on each vehicle.

The Remaining Forces
To celebrate the release of Blood, Guts, & Glory the members of the Battlefront Studio decided to hold a 24-hour painting challenge themed around the forces available in the new book. However, some people decided to take advance of opportunity to either complete other painting projects that had been haunting them for some time or get ahead for future projects Battlefront had planned.

|Gary Martin's Guards Heavy Tank Regiment|
With the release of Red Bear a good friend of mine asked me to help him get a new Soviet army ready. Luckily he wasn’t looking for a Strelkovy Battalion or a tank horde so I agreed to paint it up for him over the Christmas break.

|The Beasts of War Go Flames Of War!|
The team over at Beasts of War have been going crazy over the 3rd Edition of Flames Of War. They have recently created an entire portal dedicated to Flames of War and have added new videos focusing on Third Edition as well as our latest release, Blood, Guts and Glory. We are even sending Matt Sully from our UK sales office to go and have a chat with the lads about what you can expect to see over the next couple of months. He is as nuts as the BoW guys so take what he says with a grain of salt.
