The new Chinese (CDSU) spaceships are coming along nicely, the master castings are all ready to go into production moulds as soon as Phil has finished with unpacking boxes. I’ve painted a set of each model (apart from the two dreadnoughts – I need to save something for the actual release!) for the website so […]
First business for today is a reminder about Colours on Saturday; I’m at the workshop restocking tomorrow, so you only have a brief window remaining for any orders for collection at the show. You can either pay by cash or card on the day (just send us an email), or order via the website (use […]
The continued release of new and redesigned models means that occasionally we tweak the contents of our Aeronef and Spaceship fleet packs to accommodate the new vessels and increase the variety across them. To this end, we’ve just updated the contents of some of our British spaceship and German Aeronef packs. Conveniently we sold out […]
Image (cc) desuran on DeviantArtI've talked about Stars Without Number a lot. I think I'll probably continue to do so; I love it. One thing I did find hard to keep track of was Ship Combat, fantastic system/minigame though it is, so I decided to make this control sheet. I also think I ran it slightly differently to the book - it felt right to me - so I'll explain how to use the sheet to run it the way I did. I'm sure you can adapt it.I suggest you have:A copy of the Ship Combat Actions for each player (I printed handouts from the free SWN rules) for referenceOne SWN Ship Combat Control Sheet for the table - click to download from Google DriveA collection of minis, markers, or tokens to help keep track. They can represent the players directly or indirectly, it's just for visual reference on the sheet.Command PhaseThe Captain decides and declares the plan of actions.Players assign their tokens to departments (top row) if they will be taking Department Actions or to the Delegate Pool if they choose "Do
Next off the release rank this week are a quartet of German spaceships – redesigns of the Zugspitze carrier and the Wuppertal and Osnabruck cruisers, along with the new Wiesbaden missile cruiser. The Zugspitze is a four-piece metal design, while the cruisers are all single-piece castings with separate gun pods where appropriate. We’ve also revamped […]
At last, something I’ve finished painting ! This is the new version of the German Zugspitze fighter carrier, which replaces the old model of the same name and joins its three cruiser comrades in our Salute line-up. It’s quite a bit bigger than the old version but retains the same configuration. As well as individual […]
We previewed CGI images of some new German spaceships recently, and are pleased to say that they’ll be available for the first time at Salute. There are three new models – replacements for the existing Osnabruck and Wuppertal models (this is the third iteration of the Wuppertal), plus a completely new model, the Wiesbaden Missile […]
Salute is the largest show on the UK gaming calendar – this year it’s a little earlier than usual, April 6th, at the now established venue in London’s ExCel centre. Once again Brigade will be in attendance, and you can find us on stand TE16). As always we try to bring a number of new […]
Keeping the fleet fully supplied with fuel and vittles is the job of this massive beast, the Fort Linton class Replenishment Ship. Part of our ever expanding range of British spaceships, this resin and metal kit is 110mm long with separate fuel and cargo pods the fit underneath the main hull. The Fort Linton will […]
I’m off for a few days (the rest of this week, to be exact) for a short break to congratulate/commiserate with the Brigadieress for putting up with me for another year. All orders up until the end of yesterday (Monday) have been completed, but there will be a hiatus until I return to the workshop […]
Our British spaceship fleet gets three new reinforcements this week. The largest of the three is is Medway class Patrol Ship – this is a deep space patrol vessel tasked with keeping watch over distant colonies, showing the flag and generally showing up wherever it can be useful. It has a railgun battery as main […]
As an added bonus for Crisis on Saturday, I should have some small stocks of this beast – the brand new Neo-Soviet Ulyanovsk class super carrier. It now has the distinction of being the largest spaceship model in our range at over 110 mm long. It’s due for website release next weekend but I have […]
Most of our spaceship fleets are human fleets, based as they are around the background from Wessex Games’ long-out-of-print Iron Cow ruleset. We do have a couple of alien fleets, and today one of those is getting a complete revamp. The Yenpalo are humanoid reptilians with a thing about hexagons and the number six. Our […]
Next from the Brigade production line are the small merchant ships which came out at Salute, and I suspect we sold more of those than any of the other new releases on the day in terms of numbers of individual models sold. There are five in all of diffe...
