Brigade Models Release 2mm Buildings

Brigade Models now offers 2mm (yes, 2mm) buildings over on their website.

From the release:

We’ve released the first 2mm scale buildings that we’ve been previewing on our blog for a while. The first models are an English village set of 20 houses, and a set of three churches. Although part of our Land Ironclads range, the models would be usable for any 2mm scale land game or as coastal terrain for 1/1200th scale naval games.

VLI-8006 English Village (20 houses) – £5.00
VLI-8007 English churches (three models) – £3.00

The plan is to release additional sets as fast as we can make them – if you’ve been following the blog for the past few weeks you’ll have seen plenty of previews.

And of course the Christmas sale is still running, so you can buy these at 15% off until the end of December.

    Lovely sets (especially the churches).

    Looking forward to the factories being released too.

    Wonder if any fortifications are in the pipeline as well??

  • Thanks 🙂

    We have a small number of fortifications already on the way (you can see some previewed here [link text][1]

    [1]: including Fort Boyard and some Martello Towers

    We’ve also been asked about tackling the Spithead forts around Portsmouth, and others in our local area (we’re not far from Chatham dockyard and the large numbers of forts and batteries in that area).

    What others did you have in mind ?

  • Drusus Geronimo Rat Esq

    Well if you’re looking at the Spithead Forts, then Fort Albert, Hurst Castle, Fort Nelson.

    Also like Fort Perch Rock, Brean Down Fort, Stack Rock Fort, Popton Fort, Nothe Fort, Eastbourne, Dymchurch or Harwich Redoubts (to go with the Martello Towers) Crownhill Fort, Mount Edgcumbe’s Garden Battery amongst other defences.

    Loads in fact!!

    However for looking at a plan that might work for manufacturing and selling purposes, a big Palmerston polyagonal fort (or 2 so to have a different design on either side of a harbour/river, or one inland fort and one seaward fort), a smaller casemate fort/battery, a circular redoubt (as mentioned to go with the Martello Towers), and perhaps some smaller breastwork batteries too.

    You could also look at the Maunsell sea forts (army versions) too if you’re after something different for the Land Ironclads setting.

    Are you looking to concentrate more on the Napoleonic era fortifications or the later 1850-70s ones? Or both??
