It’s been an exciting week here at Battlefront! We’ve got a few tournament reports from Phil and myself about the 2008 NZGT. We’ve also updated the Results page with photos and some more specific rankings.

Fortress Europe is due out soon and we have a spotlight focusing on the new book, which is out on 15 November!

Finally, Chris has written a great modelling article on the new rare earth magnets that we now have available to use.
