Squadron Commander Update

Posted on July 18th, 2017 under . Posted by

Following the release of the new Neo-Soviet and British Squadron Commander models, I’ve given the rulebook an update and added profiles for the four new fighters. For those who haven’t come across it before, Squadron Commander:Reheat is a game of starfighter combat in deep space. It’s supported by a range of 1/300th scale metal miniatures […]

Last Minute Town-Planning

Posted on July 14th, 2017 under , . Posted by

As we prepare for The Joy of Six on Sunday, today sees the last of our month-long series of new 6mm releases. Our selection of 6mm scale SF buildings is ever-growing, and we’re adding five* more new items to the Desert Buildings and Desert Domes ranges. There are two new large town buildings, the Guildhall […]

Mercenary Scouts

Posted on July 7th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Today we’re releasing two new vehicles for our 6mm Mercenary Brigade force, bringing the small-scale range into line with their 15mm counterparts. The first is the Mantra Cavalry Vehicle. Based on the drive train of the Shaman tank, this is an open-topped fast recce vehicle which dispenses huge amounts of firepower from the three crew-served […]

Joy in Sheffield

Posted on July 4th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Our next show is coming up in just under two weeks’ time; after the luxury of the short journey to our local Broadside show last month, this time it’s the longest UK journey that we undertake, to Sheffield for Baccus’ Joy of Six show. As the name implies, this is an event aimed exclusively at […]

Bring on the Guards

Posted on June 30th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Back in March we released two new Neo-Soviet tanks in 15mm, and followed this up at Salute with the Terminator assault tank. These models have now successfully made the transition down to 6mm and are available on the website today. The existing Neo-Soviet vehicles such as the Bizon MBT are used by regular tank units […]

It’s Friday, so it’s new release time again. One of today’s items should have been in our Salute list, but didn’t quite make the cut in time. Martin Baker has scaled down our 15mm Yenpalo Lizard riders to 6mm and given our aliens a unit capable of scouting in rough terrain or providing a shock […]

Maidstone Wargames Society Open Day

Posted on June 19th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Phil and I have belonged to Maidstone Wargames Society since … well, the dawn of time it seems ! We are respectively the third and second longest-serving members, behind the the club’s esteemed secretary. Every year the society holds an Open Day as a showcase to promote what we do and hopefully attract a new […]

Dock of the Bay

Posted on June 16th, 2017 under , . Posted by

We’ve been quite on the blog for a week or so – I’ve been busy with orders (including another large restock for one of our retailers) and other stuff, and also had a couple of days off with the long-suffering Brigadieress. I’ve also been painting these next items – it’s taken a while (I’ve been […]

Fire Broadside!

Posted on June 6th, 2017 under . Posted by

It’s showtime again – after a brief hiatus since Salute, we’re back on the road again this weekend at Broadside 2017. Well, when we say ‘on the road’, that might be a slight exaggeration since it’s very, very local to us – Phil lives about eight miles away, Tony a 10-minute walk ! The show […]

Viva España !

Posted on June 2nd, 2017 under , . Posted by

So, as we mentioned last week, the Salute releases are all up on the website and it’s now time for something completely new. Today we have a collection of new releases with a Spanish flavour, partially taken from my Menorquin holiday last summer. Menorca is an island with a damn sight more military history than […]

And that’s it for Salute !

Posted on May 26th, 2017 under , . Posted by

So this is it, at last – the final pair of our Salute 2017 models have crept onto the website. As of next week, we’re going to have to find something new to dazzle you with… These last two are both cylindrical towers for our 10mm SF Buildings range, scaled up from their 6mm cousins […]

Somewhere to Park Your Snowmobile

Posted on May 24th, 2017 under , . Posted by

It’s the new garage module for our Research Station set. Yes, we know, the Research Station already has a garage block, but that’s a smaller twin-bay affair with room for light vehicles only. This new model is a bigger building with space for larger ATVs and explorer vehicles, along with an attached side building for […]

Unity is Strength

Posted on May 22nd, 2017 under , . Posted by

The latest version of Majestic 12 Game’s excellent Starmada ruleset is the Unity edition. We’ve just taken delivery of stock of the rulebook and very good it looks too. Starmada has always been a game with simple mechanisms that layer together to produce a detailed game that nevertheless doesn’t get bogged down – to quote […]

Fleet Upgrade

Posted on May 19th, 2017 under , . Posted by

This week’s main attraction is the website release of the new EuroFed spaceship models. There are seven all-new digitally-sculpted ships along with two fighter types. Most of the models retain a similar outline to their predecessors, but are much changed in detail. The two largest vessels, the Milano and Umberto, have resin hulls while the […]

The Return of the Hound of Hades

Posted on May 18th, 2017 under . Posted by

As mentioned just before Salute, Phil has remoulded his Kerberos spacestation model which has been out of production for a while. I’ve painted one of the new castings and it’s finally made it way back onto the website again. The Kerberos model is a one-piece resin model of a three-spoked ring station. In its basic […]
