Sure, it's raining outside, but I wouldn't say that it's a particularly "black Friday." But that doesn't matter so much, since the saying's less about the weather and more about keeping your budget in the black by giving you deep discounts on things. Battlefront has launched their Black Friday sale over in their webshop.

Rome's armies fought in many locations against many diverse foes. In Clash of Spears, you can recreate those conflicts. March across North Africa. Head deep into the wilds of Eastern Europe. Venture up the British Isles. Clash of Spears is a new tactical wargame that's up on Kickstarter now.

Warlord Games is filling the ocean with ships. They've got a whole floatilla of new Black Seas kits that you can pre-order. There's the US Navy, the Spanish Navy, and several single ships and other packs. Head out into the briny deep with a whole host of ships.

I heard my first Christmas-themed commercial earlier this week on Spotify. It's that time again, everyone. The Holidays will be here soon, and that means pre-holiday Sales. Battlefront's the first out of the gate to my knowledge, announcing their Black Friday sale, which actually happens next week and not actually on Black Friday.

SPQR lets players create battles between various ancient races. Warlord Games is letting you fill out your forces some more with Germania and Parthian figure kits. Hmm, Germania, I wonder if one of my ancestors is in that group.

Some day, I'd love to go skydiving. Now, I have an often-crippling fear of heights. And yet, jumping out of a plane is on my bucket list. I have a feeling that it'd help with my fear of heights. Granted, I wouldn't have anyone shooting at me. Airborne troops in WWII didn't have that luxury. Soon, you'll be able to add these brave soldiers to your Flames of War forces, as Battlefront is taking pre-orders for new sets now.

The latest ships for Black Seas are all 1st Rate. Literally. These massive and impressive ships for the French and English navies can now be purchased from Warlord Games. If you're looking for a flagship and center of your armadas, look no further.

Warlord Games is bolstering North Korean forces this week with their latest Bolt Action: Korea kits. There's the new Self-propelled gun (which actually is suitable for WWII Soviet forces as well, if you're so inclined) and a new anti-tank gun, to keep those American forces from coming across the border. Have yourselves a look.

I'm sure when the Allies hit the Normandy beach during D-Day, they thought that the waves of German troops would never end. And that's how it feels with these posts. We've got yet more German forces that you can add to your Flames of War armies.

Submarines. The silent killer of the seas. In Cruel Seas, they can be a real game-changer, pretty much literally. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look over their use in the game as well as comparing between the German and English subs, arguably the two best types during the war.

Baueda is reinforcing the German lines in 1-48TACTIC with a new release. You can now pick up Grenadier Lugwig Geyer and add him to your force.

Fire in the hole!

Bit of a shotgun set of releases for you from Warlord Games this time around. Starting off, for those of you that like to take all your rulebooks with you in your pocket, there's the digital version of the Black Seas rulebook. For those that are Pike & Shotte players (been a while since I'd seen anything for them), you can get your new Scots Covenanter General and Army Standard Bearer. Last, but not least, there's the North Korean KPA ZIS-3 Divisional Gun for Bolt Action: Korea.

The Germans are lining the beaches, looking across the English Channel, waiting for the Allies to make a play at taking their control away from mainland Europe. They're well equipped, with all manner of different weapons ready for action. This week's set of releases for Flames of War from Battlefront includes some anti-armor elements.

Discuss

The amphibious landing. It's been a staple of warfare for thousands of years as water-based troops storm the beaches to fight a foe on the land. Warlord Games is bringing these exciting battles to your games of Black Seas and Black Powder with a new set of rules that they've posted up over on their website.

WWI is, to me, one of the most fascinating times in human history. The results of that war still influence culture, war, and politics to this very day, a century later. If you'd like to see what life was like back in the trenches (but don't actually want to fly to France or risk death out in No Man's Land), you will want to check out Ross Rifles, a new RPG system powered by the Apocalypse System that's up on Kickstarter now.

The Germans had a whole army's worth of men and material to defend against the Allied invasions at Normandy. Battlefront has yet more for your Flames of War games. Armored vehicles, artillery, and more to defend German holdings.

Discuss

While the Normandy invasion, known as D-Day, obviously took place in a very specific part of the world, the ramifications of it spread out to all corners of the globe. Soon, all the world will be recreating it as Battlefront launches their D-Day Global Campaign for Flames of War at the end of October. Read on to find out about this new campaign event.

While aircraft were used in WWI, they were still fairly experimental. Humans had only learned to fly a handful of years earlier. By the time WWII rolled around, aviation technology had advanced quite a bit from where it'd left off. These new releases for Blood Red Skies gives you a chance to pick up some early Soviet aircraft from right when the war was taking off (no pun intended... maybe).

Discuss

The German war machine was churning out gear at a very high rate before the Allies invaded Normandy. Different weapons of war, as well as different specialized units were stationed all along the coast, making sure that nothing could get in. For your Flames of War games, Battlefront is helping bolster Fortress Europe with some more German releases.

You gotta make sure you're playing the game right. You don't want something to be unbalanced and keep using it if it's been fixed. That's why you need to check out the updated Bolt Action FAQ that Warlord Games has posted. They've also put up an article based on their Korean variety of the game, adding in instruments to the Chinese army (it'll make more sense when you read the article).

Discuss

Warlord Games has been working hard, bring you more figures for Bolt Action: Korea. If you're looking for some heavy firepower for your North Korean forces, or if you're wanting a new armored utility vehicle, now you've got some more options.

Discuss

The Germans had quite the production capabilities during WWII. They were able to churn out large amounts of vehicles, materials, and soldiers to continue their conquest of Europe (and the world!). When the Allies hit Normandy Beach, the Germans had quite a defense set up. Battlefront is bringing more of these D-Day Germans to your Flames of War tabletops, including a new Nebelwerfer, because you can't have a war without some werfed nebels.

For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

While the Korean peninsula has been taking up much of Warlord Games' releases these days, that doesn't mean that they're not working on other, older games as well. For example, they also have a new kit for Blood Red Skies as well as Cruel Seas that you can order over in their webshop now. If you're looking for some sea or sky action for your WWII games, this is up your alley.
