Swords, boards and sci -fi hordes sweep across the table in this week's Frontline News!  A Song of Ice and Fire: The Miniatures Game has a history of delivering stunning and characterful miniatures, and we've had many a cracking game of it in the bunker. It's been some time since we mentioned it here though, but even pandemics can't stop the approach of Winter... and new boxed sets are on the way to bolster your armies! First up, Baratheon Heroes I contains a wealth of unit attachments and NCUs, with some being unique to forces loyal to Stannis, whilst others...

Let's dive right into another edition of Frontline News! It's been a good week for Star Wars Legion, with several new units announced. First of all, professional Bounty Hunter Cad Bane has waded into the fight, and will use his electro gauntlets to hold enemies in place while you blast them... if your money's good, that is!  Senator Padmé Amidala is just as comfortable on the battlefield as she is in the debating chamber....

Crikey, where do we begin? Over the past seven days we've been assailed by a glorious host of awesome new rules and miniatures, and were still reeling. Let's try and take stock of it all with another edition of Frontline News! Now, we know what you're thinking. "The elves! The pointy, posh elves! They're back!" And yes, you're right. But they've only been gone for a few years. That's a mere blink of an eye compared to how long the Warhammer 40,000 universe has been without Zoats. This is a glorious model, full of sinister, otherworldly menace, and was clearly a labour of...
