Darkest Africa: A Wargamer's Guide

We head into the “Heart of Darkness” with expert on all things Africa - Chris Peers. In this intro piece to our theme, Chris talks about the appeal of gaming the Dark Continent and takes a look at the different forces and figures available.

The Path of Blood

When Shaka Zulu’s most powerful lieutenant falls foul of his lord it can mean only one thing - war! And that’s what we have in this inter-tribal refight using Hail Caesar rules.

"We Come for Your Cattle"

The staple diet of inter-tribal warfare in sub-Saharan Africa was cattle raiding. In this battle report we use the Death in the Dark Continent rules to refight an Ila versus Matabele small scale battle.

"Let's Have a Fight at Jim's Place"

Jim’s place was the name the Zulu gave to the isolated Rorke’s Drift Mission Station in South Africa which became the scene of an iconic battle in 1879 which requires no introduction to most wargamers.

Flames of War: The Third Edition

The release of the third edition of the world’s most popular historical wargame - Flames Of War - is almost upon us. In this piece from the Battlefront Design Studio the editors, writer, and designer give us an exclusive glimpse at what the third edition has in store.

Hot Time in Ligny

Using modified Shako rules, habitual solo wargamer Chris Hahn offers us an interpretation of the smaller battle fought on 16 June 1815, between Napoleon’s French and Blücher’s Prussians, mere days before Waterloo.

Sedgemoor and More

The Battle of Sedgemoor, 1685 was the subject of a club demo game by the ‘Like a Stonewall’ Wargames Group. In
this article Nick Buxey takes us on a tour of the table and explains how it all came together.

Flames of War North American Masters

In November 2011, 22 of the top Flames Of War players from across North America were invited to the very first
FOW Masters event. We speak with Battlefront’s event manager, Joe Krone, about the Masters, and present a quick teaser of all the great coverage you can find online.
