Arriving Soon 
We have been hard at work on four games: ANZAC Attack 2nd Edition, expansion and the base game Forgotten Heroes 2nd Edition along with the Heart of Darkness expansion and the base game Nuklear Winter ’68.  Okay, we admit it, Forgotten Heroes and Nuklear Winter '68 have long since been done, but it still takes quite a bit of work to line up a printer and get the job done the way we wanted. We now have the final production copies of these four games in house and they look great. All of the games are scheduled to arrive between the second and third week of February.

For the unfamiliar, ANZAC Attack brings the ANZACs into the world of Lock 'n Load: Forgotten Heroes. This second edition of the expansion is not only boxed, but also includes mounted maps and additional American, Aussie, and Communist counters.

Heart of Darkness continues the craziness Nuklear Winter '68 started. The expansion adds Heroes, which have a variety of skills, such as telekinesis, pyrokinesis, and the ability to reanimate.  The game also includes a mounted map, objects like the Charred Heart, and a Mech.

And Right After That
Down the pike we have several projects. Two of these are Lock 'n Load titles. Mare Nostrum has been designed by Ralph Ferrari and developed by Jeff Lewis. This complete Lock 'n Load module and focuses on the Italian battles in North Africa. You'll get to play in the sand with M13/40 tanks, Semovente assault guns, and much more. The other is Heroes of the Pacific, our Pacific Theater module. You can read a great preview on Mark's blog, Over da Edge.

Line of Fire 14 Fastest Selling Ever

Jeff Lewis and his team did a great job on Line of Fire 14 making it our fastest selling issue to date.  Line of Fire 14 was our first full color printed edition with our new World At War expansion module Baltic Fury bringing the Danes to the World At War series.  We are expecting more printed copies soon.  If you can’t wait our digital edition is available now for immediate download. 
Line of Fire 15 is now in the works. As usual it will be filled with sixty-some pages of gaming goodness, articles, scenarios and gaming aids.  That should come out after the four games Heart of Darkness, Nuklear Winter 68, Forgotten Heroes and ANZAC Attack, but before Mare Nostrum and Heroes of the Pacific.
