This week a few of the team are off on their holidays but we look at some awesome gifts sent in by the community and get to view Lloyd's holiday snaps...prepare the slides!

Flames Of War Hobby League

Over in our Projects system, you can now get involved with the Hobby League for Flames Of War which is running from now until September.

Your aim is to work alongside friends, clubs and stores in order to slowly build up your Flames Of War army, aiming to get to 100 points by the end of it. Then, you'll be able to join us for a grand campaign that we're putting together in October.

Make sure to get involved and check out the Battlefront Miniatures website for more details as well as registering stores where you're taking part with our Places system.

Updates & Lloyd's Holiday Snaps!

We've got a few more updates worth delving into...

  • Call For Community Writers - We're looking for folks to come on board and volunteer their skills for article writing on a whole range of subjects. You can Submit Your Ideas Here
  • No Weekender Next Weekend - With Justin and Gerry off in America at Historicon we won't have Weekender shows for you next weekend

As we mentioned earlier there's also a chance for Lloyd to show off his holiday snaps after his trip away to Valencia. He got to visit a rather epic museum and was soooo close to getting to view more toys too!

 Kingdom Death: Monster Player Boards!

We got a lovely gift from the community this week in the form of some Player Boards for use in Kingdom Death: Monster. Sam has shown these off to Chris from Darker Days Radio and we'd love to use them in our next filming session.

Gyuri Boda from Hungary sent these in from Etsy. You can find them HERE. There are also lots of other cool accessories online from designers like FancyButFunctional and PlayYourBoards. Make sure to check them out and see if something grabs your attention.


We have three different campaigns to look at this time around.

  • Kodama 3D - A wonderful 3D take on this tree-building game by Indie Board & Cards
  • Bleak Spirit - A different take on the roleplaying game genre with a twist towards storytelling and fascinating lore
  • Battle Systems - We take another look at what has been unlocked for their Fantasy Wargaming Terrain project

Make sure to let us know which of these you'd back in the comments below.
