Brick Factory (BB234) Brick Factory (BB234)
With design features like the saw-tooth roof and bare brick walls, this is a totally typical manufacturing plant or warehouse. It will look at home on battlefields for any period from the Industrial Revolution till today.

Destroyed Brick Factory (BB235)
Collateral damage can be inevitable in nearly any large scale conflict and large buildings like factories can get caught in the cross fire. This destroyed factory won’t look out of place in any battlefield, from the industrial revolution to present day.

Factory Chimneys (BB236) Factory Chimneys (BB236)
In a fight cover can make all the difference and a chimney is no exception with soldiers making use of anything to give them an edge in a fight.  These factory chimneys provide enough cover for a tank or infantry team to hide behind

Stalingrad Rubble Piles (BB238)
In the Battle Of Stalingrad many parts of the city were reduced to ruins with buildings damaged or even outright destroyed. These piles of rubble provided cover for infantry and could prove difficult for tanks and vehicles to cross.

War often takes its toll on the buildings with many reduced to shadows of their former selves. Even a ruin however still provide cover for a solider or a hiding spot for an ambush.

T-62M Coming To Team Yankee...

The full rules for fielding the Soviet T-62M is coming in our next Team Yankee book Oil Wars, but for those of you keen to get a head start we thought we would share the Formation and Unit Card information with you next week.

We've Updated Forces Of War...
Over the coming weeks we have a series of “quality of life” upgrades planned to further enhance Forces Of War. This week we are adding Command Cards! These will be accessible via a button at the bottom of Formation page, underneath Allied Support.

We've Updated Forces Of War...

Command Cards are priced at USD$3 per digital pack and this will open up all Command Cards including Unit and Formation Build cards. We’ve also added the 90th Light Formation to the DAK forces, as well as the Diana and 7.62cm Tank-Hunter Platoon to the Support options.

We've Updated Forces Of War...

Moving forward we are planning on making some further enhancements to the Command Card section to make it easier to choose the right card for your units. Right now, you need to go into a card to remind yourself of what it is, but we are investigating options to make this simpler. We will also be replacing the “Return to Formation” button (inside the Command Cards section) with a “Return to Cards” button, just to make navigation a little more intuitive.

We will also be adding a text box to the platoons (and Command Cards) should you need to make notes about the unit. This will appear on your PDF so that you can check these notes in-game.

Changes to the Release Schedule
Enemy at the Gates and Iron Cross are filled with exciting new units for players eager to join the fight on the Eastern Front. With so many releases we have made some changes to the order of the release schedule.

Click here for the updated schedule… 

Due to unfortunate circumstances we’ve also had to change the initial production run of Dietrich’s Ghosts to use metal artillery crew for the 10.5cm guns, instead of the planned plastic crew. If you would prefer the plastic figures then please contact Customer Service and they will arrange replacement miniatures as soon as the plastic sprues arrive.

Using Sd Kfz 251 Half-tracks in Iron Cross
The full armoured panzergrenadiers list will be coming out with our next Eastern Front book, Ghost Panzers but we know that many of our existing players already have their halftracks and are excited to try them out now. To that end, here’s the rules and card that you’ll need to mechanize your Iron Cross panzergrenadier units.

German Forces in Tunisia

German Forces in Tunisia
With the release of Iron Cross, there are a variety of new formations available for German players from Grenadier Companies to Panzergrenadier Companies. Now these formations aren’t just limited to service on the Eastern Front and can be used to represent German forces fighting in Tunisia in 1942 and 1943. Ryan takes a look at how to use Iron Cross to represent these forces

(Re)Construction of Stalingrad Continues...
As if returning to the Eastern Front with Mid War V4 wasn’t already great enough, these plastic Stalingrad Ruins are really dialling up the excitement level up to 11!

In the below link you can see some pictures of early pre-production test shots and tool itself for the new plastic ruins. Whether you just want a couple of ruined buildings to be the centre of the battle, or an entire table, these building facades will allow you to quickly and easily recreate battles from Stalingrad to Berlin (and beyond).

Battle of Stalingrad

From Stalingrad to Kursk
Next month we will see Iron Cross and Enemy at the Gates hitting the shelves. These two books are the first half of the Eastern Front story for Mid War with the second pair of books (Ghost Panzers and Red Banner) to follow just before Christmas. When the team first started working on the Eastern Front books they already knew that there would be just too much content for one pair of books and this gave them a great opportunity to really organise the two in a way that would be exciting to players, as well as giving event organisers a powerful tool to theme events. In this article we will be exploring what this means for the future.
