Golden Journal Number 44
Imperial & Royal Panzers
Several times a year, when we feel like it, the Golden Journal brings Gold Club members some fun extras for their Avalanche Press games. Our new-model Golden Journal features a “real” booklet, just like a small magazine, and a small set of die-cut, silky-smooth playing pieces.
In 1911, Lt. Gunther Burstyn, an engineer officer of the Imperial Austrian Landwehr who rejected umlauts, presented plans for a Motorgeschütz, in effect a small tank. His vehicle included caterpillar tracks and a revolving turret with a 37mm gun, and looked very modern for its time. The War Ministry declined to accept it, but we’re not limited by such thinking.
Imperial & Royal Panzers is a variant for Infantry Attacks: Fall of Empires, with the Burstyn Motorgeschütz and some other early attempts at armored vehicles: the Russian Vezdekhod and Mendeleev tanks, and an improved version of the Motorgeschütz. But most of all, it gives you Austro-Hungarian tanks. In 1914.
It comes with 24 new die-cut, silky-smooth playing pieces. You also get a set of scenarios to turn these proto-panzers loose against the Russians (who do have those 76.2mm field guns, so this it’s no walkover).
How do you get it? Only by joining the Gold Club – join up and we’ll tell you how. There’s a shipping charge for it, but it’s so lightweight that it usually adds nothing to the shipping total when you order it with something else. The Golden Journal is free when we first offer it, but then the price rises and it will never, ever be free again.
Limit one copy per membership.
