More News for WARFARE…..
Just a couple of days to go now before we load up the van and head off down to READING for WARFARE at the Rivermead Leisure Centre this coming weekend (18th/19th)…. stocks are coming along nicely, we should have all the usual things there PLUS of course some NEW RELEASES for the show: the following codes are all done and ready to go…. there MIGHT also be a couple of other surprise new items IF I get the time to complete them before leaving, so if you’re coming along then please look out for all the new stuff on the displays!
COMMAND PACKS for the ISLAMIC FED in SHEMAGH, and ESU in CAMO CAPES:
SG15-IF24        Islamic Federation Command and Comms pack – in Shemagh (8 figures)                    £3.00 per pack inc VAT (£2.50 ex-VAT)
SG15-E22        ESU Naval Infantry Command and Comms pack in CAMO CAPES (8 figures)                £3.00 per pack inc VAT (£2.50 ex-VAT)

The long-awaited COMMAND PACK for the OUTRIM COALITION, PLUS some all-new POWER ARMOUR for them too:
SG15-RC08        OutRim Coalition Command and Comms pack – in hardsuits (8 figures)                        £3.00 per pack inc VAT (£2.50 ex-VAT)
SG15-RC21        OutRim Coalition Power Armour troops – 6 figures with separate backpacks and arms/weapons; pack contains sufficient parts to make all six figures with standard backpacks and antipersonnel hand weapons, plus extra backpacks (2) with over-shoulder missile racks and extra arms with Plasma SAW (2) and HIMP Railgun (2)                       £4.50 per pack inc VAT (£3.75 ex-VAT)

Two new variant packs for the KRA’VAK:
SG15-K25        Kra’Vak GRAV BIKES – two bikes with riders (in HELMETS) and “flight” bases                £6.00 per pack inc VAT (£5.00 ex-VAT)
SG15-K20        Kra’Vak Command and Comms pack – 8 figures (in HELMETS), 2 each of 4 poses                £3.00 per pack inc VAT (£2.50 ex-VAT)

PLUS the first sample pack of ESU Regular Army – 8 with rifles plus 2 SAW gunners FREE (10 fig pack as an intro offer) – same weapons and uniforms as the Marines of the Naval Infantry, but with a different helmet (which gives them a completely different look) and loaded down with big rucksacks and loads of carried equipment:
SG15-E41        ESU Regular Army Rifles pack A – intro offer with TWO FREE SAW GUNNERS (8 figures + 2 FREE)                £3.00 per pack inc VAT (£2.50 ex-VAT)

And finally for this batch, the first new addition for some while to our ever-popular NAC range:
SG15-A24    NAC “Cataphract” Heavy Power Armour:  6 figures with separate backpacks and arms/weapons; pack contains sufficient parts to make all six figures with standard backpacks and antipersonnel hand weapons, plus extra backpacks (2) with over-shoulder salvo missile racks and extra arms with Rotary Autocannon (2).
Designed to be a much heavier alternative to the A21-A23 packs of “standard” NAC Power Armour, the Cataphract heavy suits have inbuilt forearm-mount weapons on both arms in addition to their hand-carried weapons, and two extra right arms are included which do not have a hand-carried gun so that it is possible to assemble up to two suits in the pack with only their integral forearm weapons.
£4.50 per pack inc VAT (£3.75 ex-VAT)
Once I’m back from the show I will catch up as quickly as possible on the mailorders, then it will be almost time for Christmas…. so watch for more news in a week or so!
Hope to see lots of familiar faces at the show, and maybe some new ones too…..
Thanks for reading,
