Year 2010


Astro Mag seeking submissions

Astro Mag is looking for submissions for issue 7 of their 40K fanzine. From their website:
With Issue 6 finally kicked out of the house, it’s time to focus on getting the 7th child out into the world. The "day of reckoning" is March 15th, and we need your articles, pictures, artwork, commentary et al to make it a smashing hit. With Issue 7, we are going to try something new with the theme, notably in that there isn’t one. The shock, the horror, right? With any luck, this will not make folks feel restricted with what they can send in.

Biohazard miniatures to be re-released in pewter

KingZombie are re-releasing their Biohazard horror figures in pewter. From their announcement: 13 NG Zombie.jpgYou may know that KingZombie.com embarked last year on producing a set of 28mm zombie miniatures in resin of first responders and survivors. Due to production issues, we had to discontinue our set of resin figures after a very short run. However, I am very happy to announce that we were able to switch mediums over to lead-free pewter. So the same beautiful figures seen on our website will soon be available in metal. Additionally, they will be sold in full sets of 20, Sets of Survivors and sets of zombies. They will also be available for purchase individually. We would also like to thank those of you who have inquired as to the availability of the resin figures after they have gone out of production. Your enthusiasm for our "babies" kept us motivated to find a way to get them done in pewter. Our new metal figures will be debuting at GamiCon on February 13th, 2010 and we hope you're able to be there for it. If not, they will be available from our website after GamiCon is over. Thank you again for your patience if you were waiting and we look forward to making more figures in the future.

Victrix Portuguese Cacadores available for pre-order

Victrix Ltd. are now accepting pre-orders for their 28mm Portuguese Cacadores miniatures. From their website:
The Portuguese were known as the "fighting cocks" of Wellingtons army in the Penninsular war. They made up about a third of his forces and fought brilliantly, the equal of any British regular. Our first release is three packs of Cacadores:
  • VXP009 Cacadores command (8 figure pack)
  • VXP0010 Cacadores armed with Rifles (8 figure pack)
  • VXP0011 Cacadores armed with muskets (8 figure pack)
The Cacadores were light troops used for skirmishing but could also fight in line. One company in every battalion was armed with the Baker Rifle used by the famous 95th Rifles. They are wearing the stovepipe shako issued around 1811. Earlier Cacadores wearing the Barretina shako will be released soon. Currently the talented Paul Hicks who sculpted these wonderful models is working on Portuguese line infantry. Also a big thanks to Mr Rui Ramos of Portugal for supplying very useful information to aid us in sculpting these great models.
