FLAMES OF WAR: New ‘Battefield in a Box’ Scenery & Sprays
Whether you play Flames Of War or any other tabletop wargame, the Battlefield in a Box range will have no doubt caught your eye. Meanwhile the growing range of Sprays for Flames of War provide a selection of historically accurate base colours for your WWII armies.
Battlefield In A Box is a vast range of fully painted, pre built terrain that’s so affordable, we really do wonder just how they do it! So whether your battles are taking place in a ruined city, the rolling countryside or the baking desert, you’ll find all the terrain you could ever need that’s highly detailed, prepainted, built to last and affordable. Seriously, you’ll never want to build and paint terrain ever again!
Similarly, Flames of War Paints & Sprays make painting a cohesive military force easier than ever. Simply choose your base coat colour and paint set for your country, then get painting! In fact, these paints are so good, we’re seeing more and more people use them with other miniatures ranges with traditional military themes.
Check out the latest Flames of War Pre-Orders for yourself and take your pick of the best scenery, sprays and new releases for your games.

EDEN: Clowns, Cannibals and Killer Robots
EDEN, by Taban Miniatures is a post-apocalyptic skirmish game with stunning miniatures, wicked game play and an insane imagination.
So whether it’s killer clowns in tu-tus, tribal mutant cannibals, or gigantic samurai robots, EDEN is a painter’s and a gamer’s dream come true. Especially if you have a suitably dark sense of humour!
Game wise, EDEN plays in a similar way to Warmachine with units taking damage to location boxes, which then has an impact on their fighting abilities. This keeps the game tactical and engaging while you do your best to complete your assigned missions.
The most eye catching faction has to be the ISC, an army of feudal Japanest robots that roam the wasteland, searching for fragments of the past.
Then there’s the Bamaka Clan – a tribe of mutants and genetic experiments gone wrong who have returned to nature and simplicity in order to survive while rejecting their hummanity and turning to canabalism.
Meanwhile The Jokers are a drugged and demented gang formed out of the shelters during the apocalypse. For them, order and society are meaningless and only the strong will survive. For us however, they’re a wonderfully dark humoured bunch and would be an absolute joy to paint or play!
Recent additions to the game include the Convoy, a group of travellers that strive on barter and sales while having the ability to access water reserves and share the teachings of those old enough to remember a better world.
Finally, the Matriarchy believe that technology and misinterpretation of religion by men are the source of all evils. The sisters and paladines now return to the surface with their gagged and bound man-slaves to unleash all manner of carnage in their quest to ensure that males will never plunge the world into chaos again. Yes, we’re slightly worried too!
So if you haven’t yet been tempted by the exquisite (and sometimes downright disturbing) miniatures, the excellent game system or the setting of this darkly colourful post apocalyptic world, then we recommend you check out EDEN right away.
