The Golden Journal
The Golden Journal is our little magazine-like publication that comes out whenever we feel like it. It’s not for everyone, just for Gold Club members. It’s free when we first offer it, and then it’s not. We print enough of them to make sure everyone who wants one gets one, but then we don’t reprint and it goes away forever.
Here’s what we have:
No. 25: Land Battleships
The Soviet T-35 heavy tank, with its five turrets and 12-man crew, appears in Panzer Grenadier: Fire in the Steppe. It might not have been a very good tank, but it most definitely was a very big tank. We tell all about it, with 24 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces for the proposed upgrades and variants plus some Land Battleship scenarios for Fire in the Steppe so you can crush the fascist invaders. This volume is available now, quantities are limited.
No. 26: Armored Cruisers
Great War at Sea: Cruiser Warfare shows the last campaign in which the armored cruiser was a front-line unit, one that ended with the German East Asia Squadron armored cruisers easily sunk by British battle cruisers. We include variant armored cruisers for the Russian, German and British fleets, plus the proposed Canadian squadron. You get 20 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces, plus new Cruiser Warfare scenarios so you can play with them. This volume is available now, quantities are limited.
No. 27: Sherman Tanks
Is the M4 Sherman tank of Panzer Grenadier studly enough? We discuss this question with lots of Sherman tank background information, a new (historical) scenario and best of all 24 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces with upgraded (with better armor) U.S. Army and Marine Shermans that you can use in Elsenborn Ridge, Saipan 1944, Invasion 1944 and other games. This volume is available now, quantities are limited.
No. 28: British Aircraft Carriers
The British Eastern Fleet gets a carrier force that can stand up to the Japanese First Air Fleet, making stand-up carrier battles in the Indian Ocean possible. The Brits are still flying Fulmars and Albacores, and add some Skuas and Rocs. There are 25 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces plus scenarios for Eastern Fleet Second Edition. This volume has not been released.
No. 29: Ancient Armor
In the years just after the First World War, the United States Army took delivery of tanks ordered for the conflict but not ready in time to be shipped to France: the “Liberty” heavy tank and M1917 light tank, copies of British and French designs. In 1940 the tanks still existed in storage, and were offered to Canada for training use but eventually were scrapped and recycled. But you get to take them to Flanders – with 24 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces - and send them into action in this variant for Road to Dunkirk. This volume has not been released.
No. 30: Caspian Princes
It’s a tiny, but complete, Second Great War at Sea game. Russian and Turkish flotillas and air forces battle for control of the Caspian Sea, with coast-defense ships and small destroyers. Everything you need to play (except dice) is included, headlined by 30 new die-cut and silky-smooth pieces and a full-color map. This volume has not been released.
