    If you listen to the News from the Front show at all, you know I love me a Panzer III.  I was very excited when I saw that The Plastic Soldier Company was making a new Panzer III J-N box set to go with their earlier Panzer III box set.  Being me, I cannot possibly have enough Panzer IIIs in the collection, so I went ahead and got mysel...

We don’t have polar bears or wolfs stalking the streets but we have the occasional herd of reindeer clogging up the roads. I have been playing...

    By Eric Lauterbach

    My buddy Bob Rossi purchased this beautiful train painted by John Sulek well over a year ago and had never played it. So, our idea was find an excuse and get it on the table!

    Trains would most likely have been engaged in keeping the rail line open for other non-armored trains so their natural enemy was partisans.  I ju...

    By Steve MacLauchlan

    After my first solo game of Chain of Command to get my head around it, I talked my usual wargaming opponent, Sean, into giving the rules a try. We again elected not to use any support, and despite the Germans having a slight points disadvantage to the US, Sean wanted to command them in the field.

    We decided to play t...

    Finally my Hungarians are ready for a game, having painted enough to make a solid 1000pt list. I organised to chuck dice with my good mate Kieth on his new and spectacular Ostfront urban table, we knew this was going to be something special. So I recorded it to share with you guys. In honour of the armies involved and the stunning tabl...

    Hey gang,

    Old Man Morin here. Today, I am going to take a good close look at one of Warlord's newest resin American armoured fighting vehicle kits. The nimble and deadly M18 Hellcat tank destroyer.

    In Bolt Action terms, the Hellcat is unique in that it is the only tank destroyer in the game to have the recce rule. Out of recce vehicles i...

    Over the weekend I decided I'd crack open some Victory Class Star Destroyers from Fantasy Flight Game's new Star Wars Armada title in order to install some LED lighting inside the engines. I had never done anything like this before, and could not find anything online to show me exactly how it could be done. It took a little bit of craz...

    So after a brief hiatus, I'm back onto Disposable Heroes and Iron Ivan games rules but have decided I'll use them with my 15mm miniatures instead of 20mm 1/72.  Understanding why I'm adopting them again is not possible until yo...
