Hitler's Swedes: A History of the Swedish Volunteers in the Waffen-SS

Hitler's Swedes: A History of the Swedish Volunteers in the Waffen-SS

Sweden was neutral during the Second World War, but despite this, thousands of Swedes wanted to participate in the war - the largest group in Finland, where over 10,000 Swedes applied to fight against the Red Army.

Another much smaller group which saw action against the same enemy was the Swedish SS volunteers. While the Danish and Norwegian SS volunteers are fairly well known today, their Swedish counterparts remain more unknown. Still, they saw action on both the Eastern Front and NW Europe, and participated in some of the bloodiest clashes: the initial stages of Operation Barbarossa, the winter of 1941/42, the battles of Kursk, Arnhem, Normandy, Narva, the Warsaw uprising, the Cherkassy and Kurland pockets and, finally, the end in Berlin. Compared to many other groups of volunteers, there was never an official recruitment drive in Sweden, which is why only some 180-200 men enlisted.

 Those who wanted to recruit themselves often had to make their way to the occupied countries - a fact which makes those Swedes who joined the SS volunteers in the truest sense. As such, this book is as much a history about the units which the Swedes served in, as it is a story about the individuals themselves. It also asks, who were they? What motivated them? What did they experience and how did their service end? With the help of diaries, letters, interviews, police interrogations and German documents from both private and official archives, the history of the Swedish SS volunteers is reconstructed:

The main focus is on those who served at the front, including volunteers in the 'Wiking', 'Nordland', 'Nord' divisions, minor units such as the Den Norske Legion, SS-Panzer-Brigade 'Gross' and the war correspondents of the SS-Standarte 'Kurt Eggers'. Also included are the Swedish non-combatants in the SS, such as the desk clerks within the SS-Hauptamt and security service personal of the RSHA. The book lets us follow individuals such as Hans Lindén, who was the first named Swedish volunteer to fall in action aged barely 19 years old; the unpopular Swedish SS officer Gunnar Eklöf; Elis Höglund, who after several years on the Eastern Front deserted and returned to Sweden; Gösta Borg, who volunteered for the SS a second time as he was denied the chance of becoming an officer in Sweden; and Karl-Axel Bodin, the only Swede to be included in the list of suspected criminals at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, who joined the SD in March, 1945.

The book includes over 150 photos, everything from civilian photos, portraits from the men's time in the SS, pictures taken in the field, post-war photos and documents. Most are from the private albums of the volunteers and many are previously unpublished. Thoroughly researched from primary sources, and providing plenty of absorbing detail, this book is a valuable addition to the history of the SS, and the men who volunteered to serve in it.

About

DML was established in 1987 to manufacture plastic Model Kits according to its own designs, and then export them to all parts of the globe via agents in different countries. The high quality products that DML have produced have won numerous awards from magazines and modeling societies throughout the world. The products are marketed under the label "Dragon". Since its establishment, DML has constantly been investing capital in new equipment and tools. Since its founding it has now released more than 1,000 items. Recent years have seen DML's products marketed under the label "Revell/Monogram" in the USA, "Revell" and "Italeri" in Europe, and "Hasegawa" and "GSI" in Japan, all ODM products.

In 1997, DML diversified into the airliner model field, manufacturing airliner models for airline promotional use and for collectors. The resulting Dragon Wings line of 1/400 scale aircraft has since grown to become one of DML's most successful and diverse series, representing the unique livery of over 100 commercial and national airlines ... a total that is still climbing. DML maintains strict standards of quality which reflect the original specifications of the aircraft, feature working parts, accurate commercial markings and scale. Dragon Wings continues to hold a unique and respected position in the die-cast model aircraft industry. DML is the officially appointed supplier of aircraft models for Airbus and Boeing for their promotional and souvenir purposes.

In 1999, DML brought its modeling background and expertise to 1/6 scale with the introduction of its New Generation Life Action Figure series. By January of the following year, this series - which features fully possible military and licensed 12-inch figures with meticulously researched cloth uniforms, detailed weapons and equipment -- was universally recognised as setting the new benchmark in high-quality collectable action figures. This range has won many awards from industry magazines and has attracted a strong and passionate base of Dragon action figure collectors worldwide. The series currently stands at some 400-plus individual releases, with subjects varying from World War II, Modern Special Operations and Law Enforcement, to licensed character figures from movies, popular music, sports, electronic games and comics. This line of 12-inch action figures is arguably of the best quality in the world.

DML continued to expand its catalogue of collector-oriented figures in the new millennium with its "Dragon Minis" series -- smaller and more stylised figures that are geared towards a younger audience with high emphasis on both collectability and a "fun factor". Another new range was the "Action18" series of ultra-realistic 1/18 scale fully possible action figures - a unique composite of modeling and action figure philosophies, but at a scale more appropriate for modelers and diorama builders.

The continued success of Dragon Wings led to an entirely new series of die-cast aircraft models for DML in 2002 - the Warbirds - an ever-expanding line of 1/72 scale fighter aircraft ranging from WWII classics to the cutting-edge planes of the modern day. With an emphasis on accuracy and peerless quality, this series has become a market leader in the world of aircraft collectables.

For 2003, DML ventured into yet more uncharted ground with "Micro X Tech" and the CAN.DO series of collectable trading miniatures. "Micro X Tech" is a brand-new Palm Top R/C Armour series in multiple scales, combining the real function of R/C with the versatility of modeling. The CAN.DO line of trading miniatures became a hit with Japan teenagers when it debuted early in 2003, and they sold like hot cakes in Japanese convenience and chain stores. This series brings back the old-style fun of collecting by reintroducing an element of surprise! CAN.DO collectors can choose their subjects from amongst several highly-detailed miniature series like World Soccer, Pocket Armour, Moomin, and more.

2003 also saw DML introducing yet another line of die-cast models - Dragon Amour. Compatible in scale with DML's Warbirds series of fighter aircraft, Dragon Armour adds just the right amount of action to 1/72 scale battlefields! Pre-assembled, pre-painted, and epitomising DML's tradition of fine detail, superb quality, and accuracy, Dragon Armour immediately became a big hit with modelers and collectors alike, and has set an example for others to follow.

2005 has heralded "the dawn of the golden age of modeling", to quote modelers themselves. During this year DML has inaugurated a quantum leap forward by issuing kits that utilise revolutionary technology and that are engineered down to the smallest detail. In doing so DML has set a new standard in the model kit industry. It does this by offering well researched, multi-material, innovatively designed, value-for-money model kits that leave modelers with a jaw-dropping sense of awe! DML continues to strive to fulfil its motto "Steps Ahead...Always!" and things will not end there. DML will continue to develop new technology, coupling it with innovative design to maintain their market leadership.

Currently, DML's business scope includes plastic models, action figures, die-cast collectables, resin, PVC and vinyl, and R/C products. Dragon sets the industry standard in many areas, and is a market leader in many of its lines. Its fine products are much sought after by collectors on eBay and suchlike, and truly, DML has set an example for other manufacturers to emulate.

Civil War submarines resurfaces

Civil War submarines resurfaces

Rusted iron on the drought-exposed lower
reaches of Bowmans Inlet off Cross Bayou in Louisiana.

In Shreveport, Louisiana.   A local historian and urban archaeologist thinks he's solved a mystery: What happened to four Confederate submersibles known to be in Shreveport during the last two years of the Civil War, but missing in action since then.

Marty Loschen, director of the Spring Street Museum in downtown Shreveport, thinks he's found remnants of the hand-propelled craft in the banks of a branch of Cross Bayou about a half-mile west of where the Confederate Navy had a shipyard. At Cross Bayou's mouth on Red River, it was home to the leaky ironclad CSS Missouri and a fast packet, the Webb, whose presence overshadowed the humbler underwater vessels.

Several months ago, before recent rains raised water levels on Cross Bayou and its feeder streams, Loschen and his brother found decades-old rusted metal and some oddly formed tree roots whose shape suggested they had grown over something curved that had rotted or rusted away. The site was on a bank revealed by low water on Bowman's chute.

"It's breathtakingly beautiful out there," says Loschen, who spends much of his time exploring the more remote, forgotten and forbidding parts of old Shreveport. He points to the 1864 Venable map of the defenses of Shreveport which shows several small buildings near where he found the artifacts.

Rusted iron the drought-exposed lower reaches of
Bowmans Inlet. The site is now under at least 10 feet of water.

"There's your sub base," he said. "On the Venable map there's an island out there. My theory is if you're going to have a clandestine sub base, you're going to put it out there. Look, there are structures out there, near what I found out beached  it has to be."

He's waiting for another period of low water.

"It's under at least 10 feet of water now," he said. "I'm trying to wait for the water to go down to go see those subs."

Diver Ralph Wilbanks, who found the wreck of the submarine CSS Hunley off Charleston Harbor in 1995, visited Shreveport twice in the last 15 years to search for the local submarines at the behest of best-selling author Clive Cussler, who also drove the search for the Hunley.

Wilbanks and a team of well-known fellow diver-researchers performed sonar and magnetometer searches of Red River and parts of Cross Bayou and Cross Lake, finding traces of old trucks from the flapper era, a dock that once served as a ferry link between Shreveport and Bossier City before bridges were built across the Red, and the remains of a Civil War gunboat, the Iron Duke.

But Wilbanks never went as far back into the murkier and shallower waters of Cross Bayou. Loschen's sub site is just west of where Wilbanks' surveys stopped.

used to reinforce containers such as boilers, on the
drought-exposed lower reaches of Bowmans Inlet near Shreveport.

Loschen is a former student and protege of Louisiana State University Shreveport history professor and author Gary Joiner, who worked with Wilbanks and whose research over the last three decades revealed official records of the submarines' existence. Joiner thinks that while Loschen might have stumbled onto something, it isn't the lost subs.

"He's wrong," Joiner says, noting that metal straps aren't stiffening ribs. He pointed to the Hunley, predecessor to the Shreveport subs, built by the same engineers but incorporating improvements.
"(The local subs) had the same everything except they had one hatch instead of two on the Hunley," Joiner said. "They didn't have ribs. They were done in the fashion of a boiler."

There's evidence the Shreveport subs existed. Reports of Union spies in Shreveport, as well as Confederate reports, detail the appearance and dimensions of the submarines as well as operations to put mines in Red River for a Union invasion that never came. Five submarines were built, with one sent to the Houston/Galveston area in Texas, and lost in transit. The late historians and authors Eric Brock and Katherine Brash Jeter did considerable research on the subs and the Confederate Navy Yard and found documentation that a number of machinists and engineers who had built the Hunley and other submarines for the South were in Shreveport the last year of the conflict.

There have been similar significant archaeological discoveries in area waters.
Several decades ago, a fisherman on Red River in north Caddo Parish noticed something sticking out of a crumbling bluff. It turned out to be a wooden dugout canoe many centuries old, and one of the area's richest historical finds.

Known wrecks of Civil War-era vessels include the transport Kentucky, just south of the LSU-Shreveport campus, and the Union ironclad USS Eastport, sunk during the Red River Campaign of early 1864 near Montgomery, in Grant Parish.

Joiner thinks the lost subs are still under land or mud, probably in good condition, much like a Union ironclad that was in the Yazoo River for eight decades only to be salvaged in pretty good condition.
"If the subs are still around ... they would be in perfect condition if they have not been interfered with. Sandy mud is one of the best preservatives," he said.

Help save Trevilian Station!

Help save Trevilian Station!

As bloody combat raged for the second day at Trevilian Station, Lt. Edward Williston brought up Battery D of the 2nd U.S. Artillery to bolster a faltering line. Despite intense enemy musketry fire, Williston advanced, unlimbered his guns, and personally moved one 12-pounder into the line of fire. Round after round of canister plowed through the advancing Confederates. Enemy troops advanced right up to the muzzle of the gun, but Williston stood firm and ensured that the Union line held for as long as possible. For this act of “distinguished gallantry” in the largest and bloodiest all-cavalry battle of the war, he was awarded the Medal of Honor.

The Civil War Trust now has the opportunity to save the very land where Williston bravely manned his guns on the second day of this crucial battle. With your help, we have already saved over 1,700 acres at Trevilian Station. Now, we can bridge the gap between two of those already-saved parcels of land with a further 70 acres of hallowed ground. Thanks to a $5.34-to-$1 match, we only need to raise $102,625 to ensure that the legacy of all who fought and died at Trevilian Station is preserved forever.

Warband Rules

Warband Rules

We are extremely happy to announce that the first set of official Pendraken rules will be available very soon, Warband, written by Steve Hardy!

Warband provides all the rules you need to bring great battles between fantasy armies to your tabletop.

Using miniature figures and terrain, you can fight battles from the glorious sword and sorcery epics you've read about.
You can play games against your friends or competitive battles against worthy opponents.


Warband is designed to be simple to learn and difficult to master, and so it uses a single consistent task resolution method throughout the rules.  Whether you’re trying to get a unit of warriors to move, seeing how effective it’s shooting or fighting is, or how well it has defended itself, you’ll be using the same dice pool mechanism.  You determine the number of dice to roll and each result of 4+ is a success.  The more successes you roll, the better your units will do, and the more likely you are to win.  Simple!

Of course fighting a good tactical battle, getting your units into advantageous situations, and making effective command decisions will mean you’ll be far more likely to win.  Coming up with effective tactics for your chosen army to defeat your opponents is what will take you time to master.

So with Warband’s intuitive rules you’ll be fighting the battle not the rulebook, and hopefully having a lot of fun into the bargain!


You'll be able to decide which of the fantastic races you'd like to command and then construct your force from the lists provided.
Warband includes complete army lists for twelve armies, with abilities, options, spell lists, and descriptions including;
Barbarian men, Dark elves, Dragon men, Eldritch vampires, Goblins, High elves, Hill dwarves, Lizardmen, Samurai apes, Taurians, Undead, and Wood elves.

Army composition and optional upgrades are highly flexible, allowing you to build the force that best fits your style of play.  If you'd like to command a horde of bison riding barbarians, rampaging minotaurs, skirmishing ghouls, or serried ranks of deadly elven archers then you'll find something to suit you in the Warband rules.

The rules are currently at the printers and we're hoping to have the finished rulebooks with us very soon.  As well as the printed copies (available through the Pendraken website, priced at £16), there will also be pdf versions available through Wargame Vault (price to be confirmed).

To go with these new rules, we are giving our Fantasy ranges a complete overhaul to provide as much variety as possible.  The new ranges will feature larger packs of 25 assorted infantry, 12 assorted cavalry or 3 guns with crews, each priced at £4.50 per pack.  All of these packs contain maximum variety, with no two figures being the same!  Phil Lewis has spent a huge amount of time sculpting these, changing weapons, adding shields, cloaks or pouches, to make every figure different to the last.  As far as we know this level of variety has not been seen before in this scale, so we're really looking forward to getting these released and out there to complement the new rules!

The first two revamped ranges to be released will be the Hill Dwarves and the Goblins, each coming with a handy new army pack built around the Warband rules.

We're really excited about this and can't wait to get Warband released, along with the new ranges.

The Road to Atlanta

The Road to Atlanta

New ACW scenario book: The Road to Atlanta, by the talented game master and author Brad Butkovich of Historic Imagination is back with another regimental-level Civil War scenario book for use with popular miniatures rules sets. Brad is an excellent researcher with a number of similar scenario books in print, as well as non-fiction Civil War books such as his outstanding account of the 1864 Battle of Pickett’s Mill in Georgia. He has become one of the leading experts on wargaming the 1863 and 1864 fighting in northern Georgia and Tennessee. His previous works have covered the battles of Chickamauga and Pickett’s Mill in detail with various scenarios per battle.
This newly published book is entitled The Road to Atlanta: Regimental Wargame Scenarios for the Atlanta Campaign May-June 1864. It is roughly 100 pages chock full of interesting scenarios which can be used as base information with modifications for Regimental Fire & FuryAcross a Deadly FieldJohnny Reb,Gettysburg SoldiersCivil War Commander, and several others.
Brad offers scenarios for Crow Valley, Stevenson’s Attack, McPherson at Resaca, Lay’s Ferry, Gilgal Church, Latimer Farm, Noonday Creek, Bald Knob, Pigeon Hill, and Cheatham Hill. Each one includes a full order of battle for the opposing forces (including organizational structure, manpower, and armament), an excellent map drawn by Brad, historical commentary, scenario-specific objectives and special rules, terrain details, objectives, and victory conditions.
The Road to Atlanta picture 1
The “McPherson at Resaca” scenario shows the full color maps Brad has produced for this book, as well as showing the general style he has employed. The historical backgrounds are succinct summaries of the general strategic situation as well as a high level summary of the resulting engagement.

The Road to Atlanta picture 2

Brad has punctuated the book with several full color photographs of the modern battlefield sites. These help give the reader a sense of the general terrain although obviously 150+ years have passed. Even so, Confederate trenches are still visible at places like Gilgal Church.

The Road to Atlanta picture 3

The Road to Atlanta scenario book has a suggested retail price of $25.99. It is available directly from the author via his Facebook page, or from amazon.com. See also Brad’s website at www.historicimagination.com for more details.

Buildings in Turmoil

On July 1, 1863, the Confederate Army advanced from the north on the town of Gettysburg. As they approached the Union right near Oak Hill, they came upon dismounted Union Cavalry near the John Forney Farm. The battle began!

This is a 10mm multi-part model which you can purchase unassembled and unpainted or assembled and painted. This is very appropriate for 15mm figures also and many wargamers do this to keep a smaller footprint on the wargame table. This model has not been added to the website yet. buildings-in-turmoil.com Please contact me for information and to purchase. We take checks, money orders, credit card and paypal.

Coker House Restored

Coker House Restored

It was back in 2006 that reeves lk and I went searching for the Battle of Champion Hill, and found that the Coker House - used as a hospital by Federal forces - was overgrown and inaccessible.
Fortunately, there has been improvement! reeves lk writes:

Remember traveling in and around the Champion Hill battlefield when you came to Bayou Wars? The Coker House was all covered up with foliage, and all you could see was the fireplace, and it looked like the roof had fallen in. Well, the State of Mississippi took some of the Katrina money and repaired it.

And now, here's the improved Coker House:




Save 33 Acres at Brandy Station!

Save 33 Acres at Brandy Station!

J.E.B. Stuart's headquarters on Fleetwood Hill was practically defenseless when Union General David Gregg's cavalry attacked the most important strategic position on the Brandy Station battlefield. A courier, a cannon and a handful of Confederate soldiers were all that stood in the way of Union victory. Quick thinking and a few well-placed artillery rounds, however, gave Stuart the time he needed to reinforce the position. The fighting raged across Fleetwood Hill all afternoon, often devolving into a chaotic melee of hand-to-hand combat as both sides poured more men into the fight. Ultimately, the Confederates held the hill and emerged victorious from the first battle of the Gettysburg Campaign.

The Civil War Trust has been working for many years to preserve this essential strategic position. Thanks to you, much of Fleetwood Hill has been saved, and we have just completed demolition on two modern houses that marred this historic landscape. Now, we have the opportunity to build upon our past success and preserve another 33 acres – the bookends of Fleetwood Hill. With your help and a $2.04-to-$1 match, we can raise the $272,000 necessary to ensure that more of this crucial hill, which has been called "the most fought upon, marched upon and camped upon piece of ground in American history," is saved forever.

Royal Mail Paint Restrictions Lifted

Royal Mail Paint Restrictions Lifted

It's been a while since our last update, but the work has continued behind the scenes and I am delighted to announce that we have received the following email today from Mr Gee, Chairman of Royal Mail:
We have lifted the four item restriction. Customers can now send an unlimited number in any one package but the volume of each container should still not exceed 150ml.

The items must be securely closed and placed in a leak-proof liner, such as a sealed polythene bag, so that any inadvertent leakage is contained within the outer packaging. Surround with absorbent material such as newspaper and sufficient cushioning material to protect each item from damage. The sender's name and return address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging.

The changes went live on 12 January, 2015. I trust this will be a welcome decision for you.
This is fantastic news, and we are so pleased that we're able to announce this result.

We would once again like to thank everyone who has signed and supported this campaign in any way. It's been a long 14 months of discussion and emails back and forth, but it's been worth it!
We would also like to encourage everyone to go and buy some paint from their vendor of choice! There are loads of fantastic businesses in the U.K. supporting our hobby, and this is a big win for all of them.

Thanks Again To Everyone!

Cheers!


Brigade Models Release 10mm SF Buildings

Brigade Models Release 10mm SF Buildings

Towards the end of last year, we had a number of inquiries about the suitability of our 6mm and 15mm buildings for use with 10mm models. Given that neither really suit that scale, being too small and too large respectively, we figured that the only way to go was to re-scale some of our existing models to 10mm and release them to see how much demand is out there.

The initial batch of six codes is now on our website, with more to follow in the near future.

B10-101 – Small Dwelling – £1.75
B10-102 – Garage/Workshop – £1.50
B10-108 – Small Dwelling – 2 – £2.00
B10-112 – Outbuildings – £4.00
B10-116 – Workshop – £2.00

Cracker Line Miniatures

About

What is the “Cracker Line” and what are Cracker Line Miniatures? The Cracker Line was opened up in the fall of 1863 to supply the starving and suffering men of the Union Armies of the Cumberland and Tennessee. When U.S. Grant replaced the lamenting William Rosecrans in Chattanooga, the first thing he did was to open a supply line running past Wauhatchie and into North Alabama to Bridgeport via Brown’s Ferry. The volume of supplies shipped to Chattanooga increased every day thereafter. The spirits of the Yanks rose along with the supply of good ole army hardtack crackers and fat back. The supply line soon took on the name of its most frequently transported item, hardtack crackers.

The Cracker Line was born. I could think of no more appropriate a name for miniatures designed to re-fight the battles of the western theatre of the American Civil War. Therefore, almost 150 years later, Cracker Line Miniatures were created. Cracker Line Miniatures are finely detailed 10mm American Civil War figures designed specifically for the Western Theatre of the conflict. They are designed by Bill Moreno and sculpted by Bob Soutar. Each figure is designed in a classic fighting pose which mirrors the famous artists of the period such as Don Troiani, Keith Rocco and Dale Gallon. They wear slouch hats, great coats, sack coats and bedrolls which were typical of the western theatre and its rough terrain. With Cracker Line Miniatures, Johnny Reb of the Army of Tennessee and Sherman’s famous bummers of the Army of the Cumberland and the Army of the Tennessee can once again take to field. So re-fight battles such as Shiloh, Stones River, Perryville and Chattanooga, the battle for which the line is named, with Cracker Line Miniatures. We have also now added Plank Road Miniatures for the great Eastern Battles of the American Civil War. Both Lines are available exclusively from Good

Good Ground LLC, the home of Cracker Line Miniatures, is proud to announce to acquisition of the Starfort Miniatures American Civil War line of 10mm figures, previous owned by Rod Langton. Included as part of the sale are all of the Starfort 10mm resin ACW buildings.

Blitzkrieg Commander Rules

Blitzkrieg Commander IV

After a lot of hard work and effort we are delighted to announce that BKC-IV will be officially released on 6th April 2019, at the Salute show!

Our revision team, led by Mark Fry, have put a tremendous amount of effort into fixing the mistakes of BKC-III and getting a much-improved set of rules back into print and into your hands.  We've also used an extensive feedback group to read through and playtest the new rules and the response has been extremely positive.  We're very excited about BKC-IV and we hope you're going to like it too!

Replacement Copies

Now our first priority is to get a copy of BKC-IV out to everyone who bought BKC-III when it was released.  How this is done will depend on how you purchased originally:

Bought Online / Not going to Salute 2019

- You will already be in the replacement queue and don't need to do anything.  Your copy will ship out first, possibly before we leave for Salute but most likely on the Monday/Tuesday after the show.  If you've moved house since April 2017, you'll need to drop us an email with your new address.

Bought Online / Going to Salute 2019

- Please contact us to let us know that you will be attending Salute and we will pull your original order from the replacement queue.  We'll bring your new copy along to Salute for you.

Bought at Salute / Not going to Salute 2019

- If you bought at Salute but won't be attending this year, we'll need you to either send us the cover of your BKC-III book, or a picture of it by email, along with the address that you'd like your replacement sending to.  We apologise for the hassle involved in doing this, but it's the only way for us to verify that you bought a copy of BKC-III.  If you're outside the UK, it's probably easier to send a photo, but contact us if you're having any problems.

Bought at Salute / Going to Salute 2019

- If you'll be attending Salute again this year, simply bring your copy of BKC-III along to the show and we'll swap it for a shiny new copy of BKC-IV!  If you'd like to keep hold of the previous rules for any reason, we'll need to either remove the cover or mark the inside to show that the copy has been replaced.

Bought on Wargame Vault

- You don't need to do anything at all, you will receive your new pdf copy of BKC-IV through Wargame Vault automatically.  We don't have a confirmed date for this just yet, but you should receive your replacement pdf by Monday 8th at the latest.

If there's any queries on that, please let me know and we'll get you sorted out.  If you've already been in touch or given us your BKC-III cover, then you're already in the replacement system and don't need to worry.

New Pre-Orders!

For anyone who didn't buy a copy of BKC-III, we have put BKC-IV up for pre-order on the Pendraken website now:   Any new pre-orders will ship out after the replacement copies have been dealt with, so we're estimating April 11th/12th for that.  BKC-IV will be available at a discounted launch price for a limited time, so grab yourself a copy for £20! (RRP £25).  This offer will end and the rules will return to RRP when we get back to work after the Salute show on Monday April 8th.

So What's New?

One question we know that people will be asking is 'What's changed in BKC-IV?', so here's a brief summary from our author:

Our overriding intention with BKCIV was to show a natural evolution from BCKII, retaining the best elements of BKCIII but at the same time remaining true to both the BKC tradition and the Commander series of rules mechanisms.  In addition, we’ve added new game mechanisms, incorporated several widely used, tried and tested ‘house rules’, as well as tidying up the army lists.  The design of BKCIV will allow players to choose between a more formalised and higher-level game, back (almost) to BCKI and BKCII in many ways; or to play a much more granular game, almost but not quite down to a skirmish level or 1:1 level game.  We have also added (by request) more Example Tables, for ease of play and quick reference.

The significant changes are:
•   An enhanced and expanded Reconnaissance section – making Recce a more important and integral part of the game.
•   Introduction of Snipers and their effect on the battlefield.
•   Changes to the way Infantry Anti-Tank Weapons work to make them more cost effective and realistic.
•   Changes to the Artillery Barrage rules – to remove a potential for imbalance.
•   The correction of an anomaly around Naval Guns and FAOs.
•   Adding a new Tactical Doctrine for Guerrillas/Partisans, with additional features to make playing an insurgency or resistance style game possible.
•   Re-working and clarifying the Scenarios.
•   Adding to, re-wording and editing the list of Special Characteristics.

Rather than a printed QRS supplied with the rules, we'll be putting up a pdf download for people to print off as many copies as they like.  Along with this we'll be creating a series of pdfs containing a variety of expanded Optional Rules – including Perilous Terrain, Armoured Trains and Refugees amongst many others.  More of these Optional Rules will be added to the archive going forward, as will more Army Lists (an ANZAC list is already on the work-bench!)

If you are a long-standing BKC player or a new convert to WW2 gaming or even a ‘refugee’ from another set of rules, we believe that BKCIV will give you a fast to play, enjoyable and realistic table-top WW2 gaming experience.

Thank You

And finally, we'd like to apologise to everyone who bought a copy of BKC-III and has had to wait for us to get this fixed.  We appreciate how patient and understanding you've been throughout this process and we hope you enjoy BKC-IV.  We'd also like to thank every single person who has helped us get this new ruleset into production, including the authors, the playtest groups, and anyone who has provided feedback or even just a supportive email or comment at a show.  It's been a long road to get here but we're there now and we can all start enjoying some BKC games again!
