AK interactive has plenty of news for July, most relevant are a new magazine for armour modellers and a book.
The magazine will be called Tankers and published quarterly. The approximately 100 pages of content will focus on realistic paint schemes from top modellers, explaining both the latest techniques together with old standards. According to the sample page shown, we can expect some extreme weathered finishes.
It will be published in published in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Czech, Chinese, and Hungarian.

The new book is called 4x2, because four modellers build the same vehicle twice. According to the description, they will be quite different despite being the same subject, from operational to destroyed or stored.

The four vehicles chosen are one from each of the main countries fighting in Europe during the Second World War: the T-34, Sturmpanzer IV, Sherman and Cromwell.

4x2 has more than 130 pages, with detailed step-by-step process descriptions.

Finally, there are several new paint sets for Modern Russian Armour, US Army soldiers, Germany WWII basic, and tools, plus new decal sets as well.

You can read all information and order on their website: http://ak-interactive.com/v2/?page_id=21333

I generally like their magazines, so these will be totally worth a look. The 4x2 sounds interesting, especially if they can really nail what a new vehicle looks like without massively overdone rust streaks and so forth.
