Eye Of The Tiger:
Utilising The Tiger in Mid-war in Three Easy Steps

In the first of two articles by Ben Polikoff, shares his thoughts on how to best utilise the Tiger in Mid-war.

Tally-Ho!:
British Tank Tactics in Mid-war
The British Eighth Army has a plethora of armoured options in Desert Rats, which may confuse somebody new to Flames Of War when trying to create a balanced force on the tabletop.

In his second article, Ben Polikoff offers some advice on how to best use British tanks in Mid-war.

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!
