1. Sneak Peek at June's Artwork - 2018-04-24 11:35:00
Who’s ready to take a sneak peek at some of the exciting new artwork featured in our upcoming books? Today we'll be looking ahead into June 2018 and at three of our series books, which are now available to pre-order.
Latin American Wars 1900–1941 by Philip Jowett
Illustrated by Stephen Walsh

Изображение

This first plate from Men-at-Arms 519: Latin American Wars 1900–1941 depicts 3 figures during the Central American Wars (1900-1911). On the left is a Private of the Honduran Army, Namasique 1907. He resembles in most respects his counterparts in the Nicaraguan, Guatemalan, and El Salvadorian armies, though he does wear a simple kepi-style cap with a ribbon bow in the colors of Honduras sewn on the front. Equipment is rudimentary, with a simple canvas haversack to carry his kit and a few spare cartridges; he is fortunate to have been issued with a Winchester M1895 rifle. The next figure kneeling in the middle is Tracy Richardson of the Nicaraguan Army in 1909. Employed for his expertise in firing and maintencance of machine guns, he is seen here with a Colt-Browning M1895 'potato digger'. The final figure is a Private of the El Salvadorian Army, 1906. This standard-bearer seen during the short war with Guatemala in 1906 carries a flag of the design used from the 1870s until 1912, when El Salvador introduced the present-day flag. He is wearing typical improvised Central American uniform of the period.
US Airborne Soldier vs German Soldier by David Campbell
Illustrated by Steve Noon

Изображение

This second plate from Combat 33: US Airborne Soldier vs German Soldier depicts two companies of 3/504th storming the Hof van Holland. After scrambling ashore, 12 men work their way around to the fort’s southern flank where a causeway leads into the heart of the position.Two men attempt to cross the causeway to the fort’s entrance where a firefight and an exchange of stick grenades and No. 82 “Gammon” bombs (a type of grenade made from an explosive-filled stockinette bag that detonated on sharp contact) breaks out with the defenders in the inner courtyard, prompting the remaining men to charge across the causeway and scale the Hof van Holland’s walls in an attempt to gain the parapet and destroy the gun emplacements for good.
US Flush-Deck Destroyers 1916–45 by Mark Lardas
Illustrated by Johnny Shumate

Изображение

This final plate from US-Flush Deck Destroyers 1916-45 depics the battle of Balikpapan, where flush-deck destroyers served as torpedo platforms. Here, the Japanese were silhoutted against the glow of burning refineries to the north, whilst the US were invisible in the dark. Manoeuvring through the Japanese, the destroyers fired torpedoes at the Japanese ships that passed, resulting in a confusing melee with the Japanese not realising they were being attacked until their ships began exploding. Only five ships out of 17, all anchored, were hit by the 48 torpedoes fired.
We hope you enjoyed taking a sneak peek at these new exciting pieces. Let us know your favourite in the comments below!

1. Anzac Day 2018 - 2018-04-25 16:07:00
Today, 25 April, marks the 102nd anniversary since the first Anzac Day. Originally created to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who landed at Anzac Cove as part of the Gallipoli Camapign during World War I, it is now observed each year to honour Australian and New Zealand troops who have served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.
Today we look back at the events of 1915, which inspired Anzac Day the following year. Below is an extract from Warrior 155: Anzac Infantryman 1914-15 by Ian Sumner, which looks at the Anzacs landing.
'As they drew closer to the enemy shore early in the morning of 25 April, some of the men in the boats were struck by the stillness of the scene. Lieutenant Ivor Margetts, a Tasmanian serving with 12th Battalion, recalled: ‘I am quite sure few of us realized that at last we were actually bound for our baptism of fire for it seemed as though we were just out on one of our night manoeuvres in Mudros harbour, but very soon we realized it was neither a surprise party nor a moonlight picnic.’ For others the predominant memory of the 40-minute trip from the transports to the landing beach was how long it seemed: ‘like days’ for Sergeant Henry Cheney (10th Battalion) and ‘to go on for ever’ for Lieutenant Aubrey Darnell (11th Battalion).
However tough their training regime, it had done nothing to prepare the Anzacs for the shock of landing under fire that morning. The leading boats were within 20m of the shore when the Turks opened fire. Reginald Nicholas, a Perth man serving with the Hospital Transport Corps, described the scene: ‘Our boys had to jump over the side of boats into the water, in some places up to the armpits … men [were] killed in the boats and in the water … looking down at the bottom of the sea, you could see a carpet of dead men… shot getting out of the boats.’

Изображение
Reinforcements arrive at Anzac Cove (Illustrated by Graham Turner)
Another Western Australian shared similar memories. Private (later CSM) George Feist of 12th Battalion recalled:
I was in the second tow, and we got it, shrapnel and rifle fire bad. We lost three on the destroyer and four in the boat getting to land. The Turks were close on the beach when we got there. We had to fix bayonets and charge. We jumped into the water up to our waists and some … their armpits … we had to trust to the penknife at the end of our rifles. When I got there it was not too long, but … I tell you you do not forget these things … all we thought of was to get at them. One would hear someone say ‘They’ve got me’ and register another notch when you get to them, that’s all.
The Anzacs landed in 12 ‘tows’. Consisting of a picket boat, a steam launch or pinnace, a cutter and a lifeboat, each tow was capable of carrying 120–60 men. The steam launch brought them as close as possible to the shore, and then cutters rowed them to the beach. Hamilton had requested more boats, but in vain. He could land only two divisions at a time, the boats then returning to the transports to collect the follow-up waves. The brigades and battalions of the assault force had rehearsed the landing on the nearby Aegean island of Lemnos from 15 to 18 April. There they were told: ‘no rifle fire is to be employed until broad daylight. The bayonet only is to be used. No bugle calls are to be sounded after leaving Lemnos. No bugle calls are to be sounded during the charge.’ But, under the circumstances, this was a counsel of perfection. Of all the battalions in the assault force, the men of 11th Battalion appear to have met the heaviest fire as they approached the beach, and they were ‘shouting and hurraying and calling the Turks all the rude names they could think of’.
‘Straight up that rugged, rocky precipice we went,’ recalled Henry Cheney. And this despite the burden they were carrying: a full pack, three sandbags, three days’ worth of tinned rations and up to 200 rounds of ammunition – for most men somewhere around 75lb (34kg) in weight. Tom Usher, a Queenslander, served with 9th Battalion:
You’re up to your neck in water – and a lot of them got drowned, too, with the weight of their packs and that – then scramble ashore and take shelter as quick as you could. You’re only looking after yourself, you couldn’t worry about the other bloke, you had to get ashore as quick as you could – just keep your rifle above your head, keep it dry… I could see these cliffs, and I ran for it. You didn’t care who you were with as long as you got away from the fire.'

We'd like to wish all our customers from Australia and New Zealand commemorating Anzac Day, a reflective and peaceful day.


2. Sneak Peek - Frostgrave: The Maze of Malcor - 2018-04-25 08:12:58
Изображение
This article was first posted on Joseph A. McCullough's blog on Tuesday, 24th April. Be sure to follow it to hear more about Frostgrave, Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago and some of the other projects he is working on! It is hard to believe, but it is almost a year since the last Frostgrave supplement set in the Frozen City (Ulterior Motives) was released. Well, that is about to change! In June the game returns to the Frozen City in a big way with the release of The Maze of Malcor. Why is the Maze so big? Well, first off, it truly is bigger. I wrote 50% more words for this supplement than any of the previous supplements and this gave me a lot of room to play! The heart of the book is the 12 scenario campaign, all set in the recently uncovered, and partially ruined, ‘Collegium of Artistry’. The first 6 scenarios follow most of the conventions set out in previous supplements. However, after that point, the Wraith of Malcor, the last headmaster of the Collegium, becomes aware of the intruders, and starts sending his servants, the Wizard Shades, after them. The Wizard Shades can either be run as uncontrolled creatures or played by an additional player. Each of the Wizard Shades is a unique character that represents one of the five lost schools of magic from ‘The Pentangle’ and wields spells that have rarely, if ever, been seen in the last thousand years… At the end of the campaign, the players get to face Malcor himself. I have, on occasion, been accused of making the final scenario in Thaw of the Lich Lord too easy. Well, hopefully I have made up for it here…
Изображение
So, what else is in the book? Well, 30 spells from the Pentangle. These can be found on scrolls during the scenarios and thus used by wizards. These spells aren’t designed to be learned by wizards, but then, when did Frostgrave players ever let such things stand in their way… Also, for the first time since Frostgrave was released nearly three years ago, I have included a section of ‘rules updates’. These are my suggested changes to the basic rules of the game. They are optional (as is everything), but I think players who try them will agree they improve the game in a variety of ways. Included in this section is a new Experience Point table. Finally, there is a double-sized treasure table, and, of course, a bunch of new monsters to fight. Oh, and sky gondolas, did I mention that? Actually, June is going to be a big month for Frostgrave. Releasing at the same time as The Maze of Malcor is The Grimoire – a set of spell cards which includes all of the spells from the basic book and all of the supplements, including the Pentangle spells in Malcor. Also coming in June is Matthew Ward’s second (and somewhat darker) Frostgrave novel, Oathgold – no spoilers, but 'rangifer'.
And will their be new minis? Of course there will! If that’s not enough for you, well, check back in a day or two for another small Frostgrave-related announcement.

Frostgrave: The Maze of Malcor, Frostgrave: The Grimoire, and Frostgrave: Oathgold are all publishing in June 2018. Preorder them on the store today!

1. May's Book Vote and April's Results - 2018-05-01 09:05:51
New Vanguard is the featured series of May's Book Vote, and as always we're showcasing five fascinating book ideas for you to choose from. Please take a read of the descriptions below, decide on which you'd like to see published, and make your vote by clicking the link below! Don't forget to discuss this month's options in the comments below.
NVG: Strategic SAMs of the USSR and Russia
NVG: French Main Battle Tanks 1945-present: ARL 44, AMX-30 and Leclerc
NVG: M4 Sherman in British Service
NVG: Pink Panthers: Land Rovers of the SAS 1950s-2014 NVG: Robot Tanks of World War II

Strategic SAMs of the USSR and Russia
Following the success of the high-altitude SA-2 system, the Soviet Union poured effort into developing longer-ranged and much more comprehensive systems. The S-200 of the 1960s could shoot down bombers at a range approaching 200 miles, and the famous S-300 family that followed in the late 1970s was – and remains – among the most capable air defence systems in the world. Variants have added capabilities against ballistic missiles, countermeasures, and low-level targets, and the S-300s have now been joined by the even more fearsome S-400. These systems have been important features of the modern wars in Libya and Syria, with both Soviet-era export systems and modern Russian-operated systems in action against Western air forces and missiles.
French Main Battle Tanks 1945-present: ARL 44, AMX-30 and Leclerc
France consistently developed and fielded its own tanks throughout the Cold War and afterwards. Learning much from captured Panther and Tiger tanks, it built a handful of ARL-44 tanks in the 1950s, followed by the successful AMX-30 – which brought the distinctive French philosophy of limiting weight in favour of better mobility. Its modern replacement, the Leclerc, refined this with a focus on active rather than passive protection, and both were exported, particularly to Middle Eastern states. This book would look at these significant Cold War MBTs, as well as the other French tank projects that failed to make it to production.
M4 Sherman in British Service
British troops were initially suspicious of their new American-built Lend-Lease tanks in the early part of the war. But by D-Day the Sherman equipped more armoured regiments than any other, and British tankers had almost come to think of them as British tanks. This book would focus on the ordinary gun tank versions of the Sherman, examining Britain’s preferred versions and adaptations, and how they were used in British Army service across Europe.
Pink Panthers: Land Rovers of the SAS 1950s-2014
For more than half a century the Special Air Service’s unique Land Rovers helped make the unit’s reputation. They were stripped down to the essentials, painted pink (surprisingly, the ideal colour for desert camouflage), extensively customised to operate alone in the most inhospitable environments, and heavily armed. From the first Series I conversion to be used in Oman through to the fleets of 110 DPVs that fought the Gulf War, his book uncovers the Land Rovers’ roles, their many versions, variants, and possible configurations, and what it was like to operate and fight them, deep inside hostile deserts.
Robot Tanks of World War II
Germany built the most famous remote-controlled demolition vehicles of World War II – the tiny Goliath, the medium-sized Springer, and the large Borgward IV. The Goliath and Springer were tracked, remote-controlled mines – built to survive only long enough to be blown up in the right place. The Borgward was heavier, and designed to emplace its charge and then withdraw relatively unscathed. But it was not alone. The USSR built and operated a series of ‘Teletanks’ for particularly dangerous operations, and Britain designed an unsuccessful Mobile Land Mine along the lines of the German Goliath.
Make your vote by clicking here!
It was the turn of our longest-running series, Men-at-Arms, to take the focus of the book vote last month. With an incredible selection to choose from, it was finally the Yugoslav Armies 1941–45 option that ended the month on top with 26.47%. See below the full results of last month's vote: MAA: Women at War 1914–18 17.95% MAA: Iberian Warriors 500–50 BC 23.82% MAA: Yugoslav Armies 1941–45 26.47% MAA: Spanish Troops in South America 1809–1826 16.78% MAA: French Naval & Colonial Troops 1816-1870 14.98%

1. The Ship That Would Not Die - 2018-05-04 16:07:00
Today's guest blog post is from Thomas McKelvey Cleaver, author of Tidal Wave: From Leyte Gulf to Tokyo Bay. Here Thomas discusses how the USS Laffey earned the nickname 'The Ship That Would Not Die' during World War II.
USS Laffey (DD-724) fought one of the epic battles of the radar picket line on April 16. The battle began at 0744 hours when radar picked up a single bogey that turned out to be a Val snooper that was driven off by 5-inch gunfire. At 0829 hours, radar picked up a swarm of incoming bogeys. Lookouts soon spotted over 50 Vals, Judys, Kates and Oscars, which were the formation that the Corsairs of VF-10 and VMF-311 would fight it out with.
Four Vals broke off from the formation and split into two two-plane formations, with two Vals on the starboard bow and the other two angling astern. The two forward 5-inch mounts opened fire and splashed the two Vals ahead, but the two astern commenced their attack. Flying low, one Val caught a landing gear in the water and nosed in. Converging gunfire from Laffey’s 20mm and 40mm guns, and 40mms aboard LCS-51 destroyed the fourth.

Laffey during World War II
Two Judys came in low and straight on the starboard beam. The starboard amidships 40mm mount shot down the first and the destroyer turned to unmask the forward 5-inch guns, which hit the second Judy, but not before its bomb dropped and exploded close aboard, showering the weather decks with shrapne, injuring two sailors in the 40mm mount.
The seventh and eighth kamikazes, a Val to port and a Judy to starboard, bored in. Laffey’s gunners knocked down both. As the Val closed in from dead astern, it clipped the after deckhouse and drenched the ship’s stern with aviation gasoline, touching off fires that were quickly doused before crashing alongside. By 0842 hours, Laffey had downed eight for eight.
The ninth attacker, another Val, was the first to crash the destroyer, smashing a 20mm gun tub atop the after deckhouse and killing three. The deckhouse again caught fire, throwing off black smoke that concealed the tenth attacker, a Val approaching from dead astern. The airplane hit the main deck aft, spilling fire across the ship.
At 0847 hours, stern 5-inch mount gun captain Gunner’s Mate 1/c Lawrence “Ski” Delewski spotted a Val off the starboard quarter that was so low and so close that only the 20mm gunners on the stern had time to shoot. Their rounds broke off pieces of the wing and fuselage but momentum carried the Val into the fantail where it skidded past the 20mm mount and struck Delewski’s mount. Six sailors inside were killed when the engine wedged in the gunhouse. The impact slewed the gunhouse to starboard, wrenched the port gun skyward and peeled back the gunhouse top deck. Delewski flew clear and landed 15 feet forward of the remains of his guns.
Laffey’s stern was now engulfed in fire. Running at flank speed only fanned the flames, so Captain Becton was forced to slow, but still managed to maneuver to dodge another oncoming Val on the starboard quarter. The planes bomb came loose however, and the resulting explosion jammed the ship’s rudders to port, locking Laffey into a 26-degree port turn.
Four FM-2 Wildcats from USS Shamrock Bay (CVE-84) arrived and shot down six attackers before running out of ammunition. At about this time, the Fighting-Ten Corsairs arrived overhead, but the sailors on Laffey were too busy to notice them. Even as the fighters went after the attackers, two more planes and another bomb struck the destroyer. When Lt(jg) Carl Reiman, leader of the Wildcats, who had shot down a Val and two Kates while defending Laffey, returned to Shamrock Bay, he reported that the destroyer was a goner.
Laffey had now lost power to her main batteries forward, reducing her defense to four 20mm guns. Conditions were so bad that the captain contemplated abandoning ship. With 30 kamikazes still overhead, the two Fighting Ten Corsairs were joined by Clarke’s four, and shortly thereafter the twelve from VMF-311. One Marine flew so low chasing an inbound Val that he sheared off a radar antenna and sustained such damage he was forced to bail out.
At 0934 hours, USS Bryant (DD-665) arrived. Maneuvering at flank speed, her gunners splashed several kamikazes before one crashed the base of her forward superstructure, knocking out the CIC and radio room, killing 34 and wounding 30 more. Bryant managed to limp to Kerama Retto on her own.
At 0947 hours, as the Corsairs continued their battle, Val number 21 dived on Laffey and dropped a bomb that wiped out the port 20mm gun mount, killing the crew. Minutes later, the 22nd attacker in 80 minutes was destroyed in its dive by 40mm fire from LCS-51. The sky was finally clear of attackers as the Corsairs winged away. The crew set about firefighting in an attempt to save their ship. By 1100 hours, Laffey was down by the stern when LCS-51 came alongside to assist in firefighting and to take off wounded. LCS-51 took Laffey in tow and by the next day “The ship that would not die,” as Laffey came to be known, entered Kerama Retto’s Boneyard. She had survived the most determined kamikaze attacks of the war, hit by four bombs and six kamikazes, wounding 72 crewmen and killing 31.
Temporary repairs were rushed and Laffey departed three days later for Saipan, arriving on 27 April. On 1 May she got underway for the Todd Shipyard at Tacoma, Washington, via Eniwetok and Hawaii, arriving in Tacoma on 24 May, where she eased alongside Pier 48, six weeks after her ordeal in the East China Sea. The Navy delayed sending Laffey into the shipyard until nearly 93,000 civilians could visit the destroyer and see for themselves the results of the kamikaze attacks at Okinawa and the bravery of her crew. Her repairs were completed the week of the formal surrender in September. After serving in the Korean War and throughout the Cold War, Laffey was the last Sumner class destroyer to be decommissioned, 9 March 1975. She was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986 in recognition of her fight at Okinawa and is today moored in Charleston, South Carolina.

1. Sneak Peek at July's Artwork - 2018-05-10 11:21:04
Today we're bringing you another artwork reveal, but this time we're taking a sneak peek into July releases. Which of these previews do you like the look of the most? Which will be added to your wishlist? Let us know in the comments below!

Campaldino 1289 by Kelly DeVries and Niccolò Capponi
Illustrated by Graham Turner

Изображение

This first plate is from Campaign 324: Campaldino 1289, which looks at this important battle between the major political factions in the city states of central and northern Italy, the Guelphs and Ghibellines. This scene depicts the last moments of Bishop Guglielmino degli Ubertini, as the Ghibelline line collapses under the pressure of Guelph superior numbers. Ubertini, represented with a mitre on top of his helm to represent his clerical-feudal status, is pulled from the saddle by a Florentine militiaman.
Soviet Cruise Missile Submarines of the Cold War by Edward Hampshire
Illustrated by Adam Tooby


Изображение

The second plate is from New Vanguard 260: Soviet Cruise Missile Submarines of the Cold War and shows the Project 675 submarine K-22 surfacing after colliding with the frigate USS Voge on 28 August 1976. This resulted in numerous damages to the conning tower and her forward cruise missile launchers, which resulted in the flooding of the tower. The Voge also suffered flooding to her steering compartment, and one of her propellers was damaged.
The FN MAG Machine Gun by Chris McNab
Illustrated by Johnny Shumate

Изображение

Our final image is from Weapon 63: The FN MAG Machine Gun depicts a US Marine Corps recon team gunner in An Nasiriyah, Iraq. He fires an M240G from the top of an armed Humvee, while at the back his comrade uses a M16A2, with under-barrel M203 grenade launcher, as cover. Simultaneously, further 7.62mm fire is delivered by a dismounted team using M240 from an integral bipod. This exposed position of the M240 gunner is evident, and casualties for this position were high. Thus during the battle, and throughout the Iraq invasion and subsequent counterinsurgency, soldiers began to add improvised armored shields in front of the guns, to give some measure of protection.
Campaldino 1289, The FN MAG Machine Gun and Soviet Cruise Missile Submarines of the Cold War are now available to pre-order, along with the rest of our July books. Click here to browse more!
