Dos gajos do Beasts of War...
"We all have those games that have a special place in our hearts, be it fantasy, sci-fi or historical battles, and Warren has found his new miniatures wargaming love. So the plan is we're going to be tagging along as Warren builds up a Flames of War army and from the look of it he's planning to run the Axis with mountains of heavy armor..."
Alerta pro PG: AINDA NÂO VI O VIDEO TODO, SE FOR MAU NÃO RECLAMES MUITO! Confesso que ainda não vi tudo porque comecei a ver isto à hora do café e depois de ver o aspecto do ajudante do badocho do Beasts of War... bem, ainda tou a limpar café do teclado.

... há alguma esperança!
Mas na Plastic Soldier.

Para variar não encontro o post original no forum da BF mas aqui fica do forum da WWPD:
"Soviets vs. Japanese - Manchuria: So, on the BF board, it was noted that BF spilled this at the Masters. Anyone excited?"
"It was talked about at the UK Masters, the japs are in the Early, Early war eastern front book along with the Fins.I think it's ment to be 1939 to march 1940."
Lessons From the Front:
Questions and Answers on Flames Of War
The third edition of Flames Of War has been out for most of a year now, and during that time players have asked many questions about different aspects of the game. This document gathers together the questions and their answers in one convenient place.
Please note that this document is an on-going project and our answers may change over time as we get more feedback from players. In some cases, the answer is ‘Opps, that was a mistake’, so there is a short list of corrections for current publications as well.
Gostei especialmente desta cena na secção Grey Wolf:
Q: "Why do people play with Finns?"
A: "Because Finns are awesome."
"Phil has updated the arsenals for the mid-war books: North Africa and Eastern Front. The new arsenals correct errors in the originals and bring them in line with the latest version of the rulebook. He is currently working on updating the intelligence briefings themselves and you will be able to download these over the next while."
"Unlike with the preceeding publications, we will release a new expansion for Saga without any period of warm-up or sneak peeks of any kind. Not that we didn't plan to, but a lot of work on forthcoming products reduced the time we could devote to communication. And, face it, do you prefer companies that communicate or that actually release stuff? I guess we both know the answer.
Anyway, this supplement is a bit special. It closes a chapter in the history of Saga, that we started almost two years ago. Varjazi & Basileus is a mini-supplement that will be the last to offer new factions for the Viking Age (at least in the near future). We will continue to support Saga, but forthcoming publications will drive us to new shores, taking new roads that we are keen to explore.
Varjazi & Basileus only offers three new factions and one of these (the Byzantines) has already published in Wargames Illustrated (that is sold out since months). The other two factions, brand new ones are the Pagan Rus and the Rus Princes (their successors). The supplement also adds a new Swords for Hire unit only available to the aforementionned factions: The Steppe Nomads, feared horsemen.
We also wanted to close this first cycle of the life of Saga with something a bit special. Hence the idea to include this supplement in a nice folder that could hold the player's Battleboards and rulebook. It is made of a thick cardboard, and thick enough to hold all the Battleboards and the Saga rulebook. It is really a goodie, something that we have done because we felt it was just "cool". At least this is something that we are looking for to get in the Tomahawk tepee. Hopefully you will enjoy it too. The price of the folder and the supplement will be the same as Northern Fury or Raven's Shadow."
"Next month we return to Vietnam for our Third Tour and this time the war is not just about fighting in the jungles as the PAVN, the ANZACs and the ARVN are all bringing the heavy armour to the party. "
E prontos, é ver as fotos no link. Tanks pra todos!

"Winston Churchill’s plan to fight Nazis with massive aircraft carriers made from ice"
PG: não li o artigo, ok?
Enviaram-me este jogo da Cryptozoic, quem quiser experimentar... avise, que combina-se qualquer coisa. Ainda nem o abri, quanto mais ler as regras, mas combina-se qualquer coisa Entretanto vou tentar tirar umas fotos quando abrir isto e por para aqui umas fotos e afins.
Links para quem quiser saber mais por agora:
Site oficial, suponho eu...
"The base you use can be a minimum of 40mm to a maximum of 60mm (unmounted) or 80mm (mounted). The base may be round, oval, square or rectangular as you see fit.
As a minimum it must have a Warlord figure in the 25 to 28mm scale.
It can be plastic, metal or resin from any manufacturer. Basing materials are left to your imagination.
You are free to customise the figure(s) as you see fit. Humour and a bit (!) of gore are acceptable.
It must be painted and based (rocks, grass, water, bodies of slain enemies, retainers etc..)
It must be painted by YOU (no proxies please – we don’t need to see how good pro-painting services can be!)
It must not have been posted up before on any wargames forums including WWPD.net
WWPD staff are not eligible for a prize(!) but may enter figures.
Finally, common sense – you must not copy someone else’s work and pass it off as your own!
So, why should you bother? Well, there’s the kudos and satisfaction of a good job. There’s also a prize! We are offering the winner one blister of their choice from Gripping Beast (e.g. from 4 hearthguard, 8 warriors or 12 levy – mounted or unmounted)."
"The latest Saga supplement, The Raven's Shadow, offers a number of new Factions for you to play. One of those is the Irish. These are a list that offer the ability to field Champions..."

Há 98 anos, um jogo de bola icónico
É a "loucura"! (com um Boldzinho na loucura-mor, imho)
"The first few months of the year will see the Market Garden compilations and new models arrive. Mike’s design notes and the schedule are up today. But then we change gear and go back to Vietnam for Tour Of Duty. Vietnam has evolved from its humble beginnings in Wargames Illustrated into its own period. And, to show our commitment to it now being an ongoing part of the Flames Of War product mix, Phil has written an 80-page intelligence handbook, Tour Of Duty, to get the ball rolling. I say 80-pages, as that is where we started, but as we are prone to not like leaving anything out, Phil kept coming back with more and more things we just ‘had’ to include, so the end result is a bumper 132-page book.
As you can see, the book has all kinds of new forces and nations in it. And it brings armour to forefront of the conflict, to give us the chance to make some of the coolest-looking tanks ever. Vietnam will now get a regular annual book slot and, like our other periods, will get ongoing support throughout the year. The models we have planned are wonderful and everything from James’s ANZAC troopers to Tim’s Centurion tank, with the usual level of awesomeness from Evan, means the problem is deciding which force to collect.
A few months of Vietnam take us up to June, and in this slot we have a surprise. In the past year we have introduced the Third Edition of the core rules, and as such all new books for the Late War period from Red Bear and Grey Wolf onwards have had the new version taken into account when the books were made. As Flames Of War is an ever-evolving hobby, this has meant that a single pair of books have been left behind a little, as we have been unable to adjust these lists to match with the updated points or selections that the later books have. The task of updating the two D-Day compilations was not a simple one, and we did not want to just create a monster PDF to get it done quickly. Instead, we wanted to make sure that the result was something that can take an equal place alongside our other books.
On the 6th of June 2013 we will be launching the new updated versions of both of the D-Day compilations. These new versions will be pointed to fit with the latest books (Americans from the Ardennes, British from Market Garden etc.) and take into account the new rules and changes from Third Edition. We are also going to throw in a few extras that Phil and Mike claim should have been in there originally. The end result will be a pair of books that brings the playing field level for all of Late War in one go.
Now, because many you own these books and expected to keep using them well into the future, we feel that we owe you something for your understanding. Although many of you have petitioned for this to be done, we want to make the introduction of these books – as necessary as they are to balance Late War – as painless as possible. As such, we will use the anniversary of D-Day itself and the month of June to allow anybody who owns the current copies to pop into their local store and get the new version for half price. More details of how this will work will come closer to the time.
Now after the month of June and all the D-Day excitement we are going back to Early-war as Wayne brings you the first of the Eastern Front books “Winter War” (that is a working title as the real one gives too much away). The forces on the Eastern Front will all be represented with great new models for the Soviets, Germans and Finns. The book is the first of two for the Early-war in this theatre and Wayne will create the next one the following year. This book is full of surprises as new forces from the east start to make their presence felt in the war.
A few months of Early-war has us going back to Late-war to the Eastern Front as we enter the final period of the war, 1945. We have plans to do several books as well as this one the following year to cover all the forces leading up to Berlin before tackling the final battle zone.
The year rounds out with compilations for Italy, with both Cassino and Dogs & Devils included, plus a bunch of new material.
Quanto a cenas não-FoW:
"The new year will also bring with it a whole swathe of news for Gale Force 9, as we expand on this year’s new ventures. Due to some fairly rigorous legal text, I have to avoid saying anything specific. But it is fair to say that with Spartacus and Dungeons & Dragons having just started their plans, we have not only those ones to execute but all next year’s ‘new’ projects to deliver as well, so it won’t be just be gladiators and monsters getting the board-game and miniature treatment."
