Tigers and Panzer IIIs in TANKS
TANKS is a fast paced skirmish game using 2-6 tanks per player where out maneuvering your opponent is just as important as out shooting them!

Hans-Georg Lueder led an interesting German formation of tanks that consisted of a mix of Tiger and Panzer III tanks. The TANKS team wanted to reflect this unlikely pairing in the game and have introduced loads of cool cards to let players create their own Kampfgruppe Lueder.

Gaming Mats—an update

After an unexpected delay (involving a very late change of supplier) our new game mat has started reaching customers, who are now giving us their feedback.

Many are pleased with the mat, but others have expressed some concerns. The first thing worrying some people is creases in the material, from the way it is folded. These creases are temporary—we tested carefully this with sample mats before we approved the material for production. The nature of the neoprene is that the creases should gradually relax out if you keep the mat laying flat for a day or two.

Below: A gaming mat which has been smoothed out and left for a few hours on Battlefront's lunch-room table...

...compared to a brand new gaming mat fresh from the box.

You can speed this up by gently ironing the mat through a towel. Use a low heat, and take care not to leave the iron in one place for too long or let the material get too hot.

You can avoid future creases by transporting by rolling it rather than folding it.

The bigger concern is that the actual dimensions of some mats are somewhat smaller than advertised. It seems this is because the material, which is fairly stretchy, was under slight tension when it was cut and printed, so it shrank back when the tension was released.

In many cases, removing the creases, either by ironing or waiting them to relax out on their own, will somewhat help with the size issue.

Carefully ironing the gaming mat

However, some people have made it clear that a mat that is at all smaller than the specified dimensions is no use to them—that is certainly fair.

Because this size issue is a failure of quality control on our part, we will be offering a full refund to anyone who is not happy with the mat they have received.

If you would like a refund, please return your mat to the place of purchase by 30 June.

If you have any questions, please email customerservice@battlefront.co.nz
