A treat for you Sudan fans this week – the latest in Partizan's growing stable of painting guides. Remember that we also have Stuart Asquith's scenario book and his campaign guide.

If you fancy your chances as being accepted as a contributor to the series, feel free to get in touch. However obscure your period of interest.

Our suppliers are getting back to normal, even Warlord Games, so take advantage of our discounted and post-free worldwide stock.

Talking of which, as part of the U.S. ongoing trade skirmishes with China, the U.S. Post Office was going to pull out of the international postal union… It has agreed to stay, on the condition that it can put prices up, so very shortly we may well have to dramatically increase our prices – the minimum for post-free to the U.S. will certainly change.

So I advise our American cousins to buy now whilst the post is cheap and the exchange rate is good.
