Grant Armoured Troop (BBX37) Grant Armoured Troop (BBX37)
British armoured regiments were delighted to receive the new American-made M3 Grant tank, which gave them a tank with a gun as good as those on the German panzers, with armour to match. Rushed into service to meet the urgent need for a heavy 75mm-armed tank it took the Germans by surprise. Its thick armour and powerful 75mm gun are superior to most of the German panzers.

Crusader Armoured Troop (BBX39)
The light squadrons of the armoured regiments embody the dash and daring of the British cavalry. Fast and manoeuvrable but not as heavily armoured as the enemy panzers, they use speed and cover to protect themselves. They are often relegated to scouting or protecting the flanks of the regiment while their heavy cousins, the Grants, take the fight to the enemy.

Panzer III Tank Platoon (GBX96) Panzer III Tank Platoon (GBX96)
The Panzer III is Germany's standard tank, making up over two-thirds of their tank strength. It has good mobility, is well armoured, and is armed with an effective 5cm (2-inch) gun. Manned by veteran crews that are confident in their abilities and Germany's eventual victory, they are capable of defeating just about any tank in the world.

Afrika Korps Rifle Platoon (GE746)
After taking heavy casualties in the siege of Tobruk, infantry units in Africa were reorganised to have 'fewer men, more weapons'. Each company was organised as a self-contained battlegroup with its own anti-tank and artillery capability. This allowed the tanks to operate independently from the infantry, giving them the freedom to manoeuvre against the enemy.

Desert Escarpments (BB217) Desert Escarpments (BB217)
These naturally occurring slopes are a tank crew's best friend. Blocking line of sight; allowing room to manoeuvre to outflank the enemy or providing concealed firing position when taking up a hull down position.

Extra Large Dune (BB220)
These naturally occurring hills of loose sand are built up by the wind and can take a manner of different shapes and sizes. To the forces serving in North Africa, they can provide concealment from the enemy or a much-welcomed break from the Sun.

Large Desert Building (BB223) Large Desert Building (BB223)
Four walls and a roof provide the infantryman with protection from small arms fire and shell fragments; making them difficult to winkle out without the aid of some real firepower.

Revolution! V4

Revolution! V4
A 4th Edition Launch Event / Late-war Tournament
On 23 April 2017, Voevoda Club hosted Revolution! V4, a 1500 point Late-war tournament at the Geek Wars store in Moscow, Russia. The event acted as both a tournament and a celebration event for the release of the 4th Edition Flames Of War rules.

Ten players, with armies updated for the new version of the rules, were keen to test the changes and new mechanics for themselves.

When Life Gives You Lemons...
Sometimes, life gives you lemons and sometimes your paint supplier gives you Armour Green spray paint instead of Crusader Sand. 

So, in true Battlefront fashion, we’ve decided to set up a lemonade stand (or, an Armour Green stand since that’s what we’re calling it) and offer this one-of-a-kind, never to be made again, Armour Green spray paint.

Since we’re sitting on an entire pallet of Armour Green, we thought that we’d offer it to you at the special retail price of US$10.00 per can. It is a great colour, slightly darker than Firefly Green and is a nice match for Cold War-era Soviet vehicles; especially with the green/sand camouflage patterns of Russian equipment used in Desert Storm with a couple of us in the office utilising it for just that purpose.

Available in NORTH AMERICA and UK/EUROPE ONLY and while stocks last!
