As we near the 2008 NZGT, we’ve got a few last minute progress articles for a few staff armies. Wayne updates us on his Gebirgsjäger and I scramble to get La Nueve tournament-worthy.

We’ve spotlighted the very cool and new River box set. This will be a great addition to your game tables as it will give you and your opponents a new and exciting challenge!

We also have an article about the Soviet 2nd Shock Army and how to field them in Flames Of War using Stalin’s Onslaught.

Finally, JP has a few new announcements, including the new Special Order Catalogue and the Fortress Europe book offer.
