Flames of War Newsletter October 30, 2008

Check out the latest newsletter from Flames of War. There’s lots of great new releases and content for all your Flames of War needs.





Welcome to the Flames Of War and Battlefront Miniatures Newsletter. 


Last weekend was the 2008 Late War NZGT, and we’ve got results as well as a few comments from a few of the staff talking about their experiences. 

We’ve got five new spotlights as well, The IS-2 Tankovy Battalion box, the SU 57 Assault Gun, a 15cm sIG33 Infantry gun, and the much awaited the Jadgpanther! You can also have a look at the new massive Devastating Bombardment Template!

Finally, James spiced up a few of the new river sections from Battlefield in a Box: River set using some Gale Force Nine Basing Kits.
