Warmachine War Room ready for download


Privateer Press has announced that its War Room app is now available for download on iOS. The app will be appearing in the Google Play store and Kindle as well.

Flames of War update on August Releases

Flames of War letting everyone know there will be a slight delay with the planned August releases.  They said

"With the overwhelming demand for the new painted terrain, we have decided to rearrange the dates for our planned August releases. We have done this so the extra stock has time to arrive. None of the releases planned for this month have disappeared; the release dates have just been rearranged. 

We are working hard to increase the quantity of both European House three and four, as right now we could ship double the planned run but simply don’t have the time to product that many in the current timeframe. Our best advice to you right now is to check with your local Flames Of War stockist on what stock they are currently expecting (they need to have that confirmed from their local Battlefront office) and let them know what you definitely want as far ahead of time as possible."

Spartan Games looking for Vanguards

Spartan Games are now looking for Spartan Vanguards, volunteers to help spread the word about their systems - Firestorm Armada, Dystopian Wars and Uncharted Seas.

On the site they describe Spartan Vanguards as
"individuals and small groups who volunteer their time to demonstrate for Spartan Games at shows, clubs and stores. Spartan Vanguards own at least two fleets of at least one of our games and don’t mind showing them off. Spartan Vanguards can represent just one, or more of our games. They have a great knowledge of our games, but also enjoy benefits of being part of this exclusive group."




There are a number of benefits to being a Vanguard such as 20% off products in the Spartan Games online store, reward points every time Spartan Games systems are demoed, early notification of new product releases and the opportunity to purchase them before anyone else, exclusive merchandise such as shirts and caps, access on the community forum to a dedicated Spartan Vanguards area and opportunities to play test rules that are still in development.


Obviously not just anyone can be a Spartan Vanguard, and there is a criteria list, so you need to check to see if you can make that first cut.


For full information check out their Vanguard application page.  You can also download a pdf of the online application.
