Amazon is now making a popular, fast-moving game for 1/72nd scale models available in print.
Battlefields: From Broadswords to Bullets allows you to simulate skirmish battles from any era in history using widely available low cost “HO” plastic soldiers. These rules provide for an exciting game with realistic rules and quick turn sequences. Previously only available in Kindle form, the game book can now be purchased on Amazon for under ten bucks.
With HO figures available ranging from Trojan warriors to modern troops, this game covers them all. Choose from any historic conflict, create your armies, then match them in battle with your friends over soda and chips (or pretzels and beer). The rules are fast moving and create an exciting tempo of play that realistically simulates the tactical dilemmas of skirmish combat. All you need is some commonly available model soldiers, some regular six sided dice, a measuring stick and these rules.

The popular Old School Tactical series returns for its second edition with Old School Tactical Volume II: West Front 1944-45. This iteration of the quick to learn, challenging to master, tactical game introduces the Americans to the series.
Fight across the European countryside with M-10 tank destroyers and Sherman Easy Eight tanks. Pile your powerful rifle squads into venerable M5 halftracks or nail an onrushing armored car with a bazooka. Find your enemy, fix them, flank them, and finish them. If it works on the battlefield it works in Old School Tactical, and it works with minimal fuss and muss.
New units in Old School Tactical Volume II: West Front 1944-45 include (but sure as heck aren’t limited to):
PzKpfw IV H
PaK 40 75mmATG
German 2nd Line Infantry

Hawk Wargames is excited to announce Dropzone Commander: 2nd Edition!
The current Dropzone Commander system is highly regarded and we are working on bringing you a new edition that retains its excellent core mechanics whilst improving many aspects to reflect warfare in the 27th Century.
We are in the stages of alpha testing the proposed changes and a closed beta will also take place with our Hawk Talon scheme. We expect a release in Q4 2017 with a release date announced closer to the time.
2nd Edition will bring balance to existing units and enhance a player’s collection, not invalidate it. We want every unit to be playable. New units are in development which will be previewed over the next few months.
Beasts of War have interviewed Dave and they will have a video for you on Monday with more details including proposed changes and even more new artwork, including this incredible Archangel squadron!

The Ultimate Barrage Template is the latest addition to Pyrkol´s Flame Template Collection.
This is a massive game aid bound to make an equally massive impact on the battlefield.
The Template comes assembled and ready to use, made of thick acrylic and quite sturdy. The clear acrylic material means you can easily see the units underneath.
The light going through and reflecting off the acrylic blast templates creates a glittering fiery effect; this increases your immersion in the game and really feels “in combat”.
