The question most often asked when we release a new 15mm model is will you be releasing this in 6mm ?. This answer to that question is (almost) always yes, but some take a little longer than others. This week’s new release is one of the shorter time frames we’ve managed – following on from […]
New this week we have some skimmers to get you infantry zipping about the battlefield at top speed. These are small, one-man hover vehicles used by some infantry units in the Hammer’s Slammers universe either in place of or as a supplement to normal APCs. There are two options for the skimmer crew – a […]
The Silverback is a huge tracked tank destroyer, more massive even than one of the Slammer’s M2 blower tanks. It has a 25cm powergun as main armament, backed up by a pair of remote tri-barrel 2cm powerguns on each of the crew hatches. An assault gun version has a twin over-under shotgun-style weapon which fire […]
Finishing our triumvirate of weekend 15mm releases is this new cargo carrier version of the GS-1000 range of GEVs. This single piece resin model is based on the standard GS chassis with a new open cargo deck – a larger rear section that will fit one of our cargo pods, and a smaller side section […]
Today we’re releasing some useful new 15mm scale waterslide decals – twenty sets of vehicle tac numbers to help you identify your tanks. They come in five colours (red, yellow, blue, white and black) and each sheet has enough 2-digit numbers for 20 vehicles (two numbers per vehicle) running from the 10s up to the […]
One of the Hammer’s Slammers outfits that has benefited from our slew of releases over the last six months or so has been the Lightning Division. This unit started out equipped with tracked armour, but around 340TW they began the process of upgrading them with more advanced blower tanks. I’ve already painted up a pair […]
Following the belated delivery of our new casting kit, we’re finally able to put the Thunderbolt Division’s Dragoon half-tracks back into production. The Thunderbolts appears in the Hammer’s Slammers story The Warrior (and get a bit of a pasting from Slick des Grieux !) and use two different types of half-track – the Viking recce […]
Something we’ve been wanting to do for a little while is expand on our range of pre-made 6mm detachment packs for the Crucible, as we have with the 15mm Hammer’s Slammers range. This week we received some new backing cards for our blisters and I’ve been able to put together a number of detachment packs […]
Another (yes, another !) new 15mm Hammers Slammers detachment fell off my painting table the other week. They almost happened by accident, but they were such a simple build and took very little time. Strictly speaking it’s a troop, not a detachment – it’s only a half-sized unit. To create a full detachment, just add […]
Tony F reports on one of the two mega-games that the club put on at the August bank holiday weekend meeting.More Slamming!
Last weekend the club to which Phil and I belong, Maidstone Wargames Society, ran an extended meeting. We took advantage of this to organise a large Hammer’s Slammers game with nine players and huge amounts of 15mm kit. There’s a report on the MWS website, but here are a few photos to whet your appetites.
Slammers detachments are like buses – you wait ages for one, then two turn up at once. After last week’s 111-wheel painting and assembly marathon with the unit of Foster’s Mercenaries, this one is a rather more straightforward build. The Slammers regiment aren’t the only users of the M9 combat car; besides the Lightning Division […]
Firstly, another update on orders – I’ve almost caught up, everything up to the 29th of July is already packed and either sent or ready to go later this morning. I’m hoping today to finish everything from July and hopefully get stuck ...
We’ve just had a resupply of Hammer’s Slammer decals, filling in some of the codes we were short of. It now means we have full stocks of (amongst others) Zaporiskiye, Thunderbolt Division and West Riding Yeomanry, plus some of the myriad va...
After any number of minor but irritating delays (mostly around getting the turrets to cast successfully), we are finally able to add 6mm versions of our recent Hammer’s Slammers releases to the website. There are a lot of them – from the Fa...
