I invite you to download and preview the rules for Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943, available in the new Spearpoint 1943 Downloads section at www.fronltinegeneral.com.
Here's a direct link for your convenience: http://frontlinegeneral.com/Spearpoint1943Rules11x17.pdf (PDF, 4 Mb)
Production is going well and we have an ETA of Mid-June for release!
Richard Mataka spent a lot of time playing a pre-release copy of Spearpoint for his forthcoming review that will soon be posted on Mataka.org. I'm so excited about the great review that I want to share just one excerpt:
"I'm a typical grognard. I like my maps, cardboard counters and CRT's. So imagine my surprise and enormous delight when I was asked to take a look at “Spearpoint 1943”, a historical based card game that I immediately enjoyed. This is a game steeped in historical accuracy, research, playability and months and months of playtesting. What’s great to see is that all of this work has truly paid off to provide the gamer with a unique and extremely enjoyable experience with tremendous replay value." -Richard Mataka, Mataka.org
All the Best,

Rackham Entertainment have announced an upcoming skirmish game in the Confrontation universe.
From their website:
As we announced previously, we are working on a skirmish game taking place in the Confrontation universe. So we selected the coolest minis from the range and have been hard at work getting some satisfying results. Project Groundhog (sounds better than Project Manhattan dunnit?) is the result of 13 versions of the coding matrix, 5 series of prototypes, hours of testing, a lot of yelling, countless burned neurons and broken army builds…et voilà. We are getting there. You learn it in 15 minutes and you are off playing games that last between 20 to 40 minutes each.
I thought Confrontation was skirmish?

From their announcement:
Hawks And Wolves is a three scenario mini-campaign pack that picks up where Indian Country left off! A grass-roots movement to drive the foreign jihadists from Irkala province in (fictional) Dawala has taken off and 2nd Platoon is right in the middle of it. Will Sheik Aban live long enough to see his movement take off or will his jealous neighbors and a vicious operative from a bordering nation kill him and his militia in one stroke? 2nd Platoon has their own ideas on how things should turn out, especially after one of their squads is targeted by highly efficient IED based ambush!.
Hawks And Wolves contains:
• More fictional backdrop for Dawala and the men of 2nd Platoon
• 3 linked scenarios for Force on Force – perfect for a chapter in a platoon based campaign game
• Mixed Force action
• New rules for building searches
The PDF version of Hawks and Wolves is $10 US. This is a PDF only release

The expansion also naturally includes a building of the same name, it being worth 55 support, making it the most valuable region in the game. What’s more, as long as you have a token in the guardhouse, your other tokens cannot be removed or replaced through the use of certain townspeople.
