New Thunderbolt Options

Posted on May 25th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

After a couple of weeks of new 15mm SF models, the smaller scale gets a look-in this week. Our Thunderbolt Division Dragoon half-tracks are reinforced by two versions of the smaller Viking recce vehicle, along with three versions of the Varningr utilit…

The Rise of the Centurion

Posted on May 24th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

John Treadaway has added a new page on the Hammer’s Slammers website covering the history and use of our new Centurion Large Transport Vehicle family, from the C400 utility truck up to the huge C4H6 Hog. Click on the C204 below to be taken to the…

Bolt from the Blue

Posted on May 20th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I recently posted about my Lightning Division’s ill-fated debut on the tabletop and their defeat at the hands of the Zaporoskiye Regiment. Regardless of their performance (and believe me, they’re out for revenge) they look striking in their…

Big Wheels

Posted on May 18th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Today, another seven new 15mm vehicles aimed at Hammer’s Slammers:The Crucible hit the website. To be strictly accurate, they’re actually seven configurations of the same vehicle family – the Centurion Large Transport Vehicle. The Cen…

Base Over Apex

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Next off the 15mm conveyor belt are three wheeled vehicles – the Odyssey, Catapult and Broadsword. The primary users of the first two are the Apex Dragoons, while the Broadsword is much more widely used, being fielded by the Han Black Banner Brig…

Struck by Lightning

Posted on May 13th, 2018 under , . Posted by

A couple of weeks’ ago I had the good fortune to play a game of Hammer’s Slammers:The Crucible against author John Treadaway. I fielded two detachments of the Lightning Division (infantry and tank platoons) from the updated list, while John…

New Tracks

Posted on May 10th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I’ve recently been painting a couple of 15mm Lightning Division detachments for Hammer’s Slammers:The Crucible; these are both upgraded units after the division re-equipped with blower tanks. Some LD units still field the older tracked vehi…

Recce Thunderbolt

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Today sees the start of a minor deluge of new 15mm Hammer’s Slammers releases, spread out over the next couple of weeks. First off the production line is the Br64/68 Viking half-track, used by both the Thunderbolt Division and the Wolverines merc…

Wheels, Wheels, Wheels #3

Posted on April 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The title of this post is a bit of a misnomer, as there are no wheels visible in the photos below – they’re off being painted separately (which I discovered is so much easier…). We present the last two models in the Centurion series &…

Hat Trick

Posted on April 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Stuff is coming online very late here, but Phil delivered a couple of crucial moulds at the start of this week. Amongst other things, they contained a series of 15mm turrets for the various new vehicles that we’ll have on Saturday. There are some…

Tracks, Tracks, Tracks

Posted on April 8th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

After two lots of wheeled vehicles, it’s time for the treadheads to get in on the action. I posted a picture of a hybrid Lightning Division tank that I’d created by combining the turret and hull from two different Neo-Soviet models along wi…

Wheels, Wheels, Wheels #2

Posted on April 4th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Following on from the vehicles previewed earlier today, we have more wheels (lots and lots of wheels !). This time it’s the large Centurion family of heavy transporter vehicles, which range from the rather dumpy Centurion 400 to the huge 4H6 arti…

Wheels, Wheels, Wheels #1

Posted on April 4th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

We previewed a number of new wheeled vehicles a few days ago, and I’ve now had a chance to paint some. This first batch of three vehicles form the core of several mercenary units including the Apex Dragoons (in whose colours I’ve painted th…

The Salute 2018 Page

So, with exactly two weeks to go until the doors to Salute are thrown open, it’s high time we set up our Salute releases page for this year. This page is where you’ll find the definitive list of confirmed releases at the show, including pri…

Viking Thunderbolt

Posted on March 30th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Today we’re unveiling a new 15mm model for the Thunderbolt Division, a mercenary unit from the Slammerverse that relies mainly on half-tracked vehicles (and you thought half-tracks were obsolete …). This is the Viking, a smaller recce vehic…

A Little Detached…

Posted on March 16th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

This week I’ve mostly been occupied with casting up dozens and dozens of 15mm Slammers vehicles and 6mm buildings for Scale Creep Miniatures to stock in the US. Add that to more work on preparing Salute releases and I haven’t been left with…

Salute Starts Here

Posted on March 13th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

As always, we’ll be bringing lots of new releases to Salute this year across many of our ranges. Obviously Hammer’s Slammers will be big part of this and today we’re starting off with some previews of the first casts of a number of ne…

Bits’n’Pieces

Posted on March 9th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Following on from the 6mm Slammers bits on Tuesday, today we have a miscellany of 15mm items. The most important of these is probably the release (at last !) of the 15mm A21M Mortar Jeep, which fits in the ToE of several forces besides the Slammers the…

We Have Normality

Posted on March 6th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Anything you still can’t cope with is therefore your own problem. I love the English weather. In the space of 48 hours we’ve gone from sub-zero temperatures and mounds of snow to ten degrees and watery sunshine – and this being Englan…

Update – It’s Still Snow Joke !

Posted on March 2nd, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The weather is still pretty grim here – we’ve had more snow with another bout forecast for this afternoon. I haven’t ventured to the workshop at all since Monday, although main roads are clear the back routes are still tricky to negot…

New Slammers

Posted on January 16th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Notwithstanding the irritating website bug, today sees the slightly-later-than-planned release of the first of our promised new 15mm Hammer’s Slammers models. The uparmoured M2A4FUA command tank fills a gap in the Slammers’ TOE and allows l…
