Black Hat Miniatures have purchased the Cobalt-1 sci-fi range and rules.

From their announcement:

I am very pleased to announce that we have bought the rights to the 28mm SF range Cobalt-1 from Bob Naismith. This includes all the existing figures, 20 new greens and the Cobalt-1 and Cobalt-2 rulebooks.

Bob is delivering the moulds, etc next week and I imagine it will take a few weeks to look through everything, work out which codes need production moulds (where only Master moulds exist) and sort out packaging, photos, etc.

I expect to start re-releasing the range in January and hope to have the unreleased greens into production in time for the Salute Show in April 2011.

We will be combining Cobalt-1 and Cobalt-2 into one new, revised rulebook and publishing it as both hardcopy and a PDF. There will be a call for playtesters for the system at some point early next year.

We will also be working with Bob to extend the range over the next few years.

Many thanks
Mike
