Belgian Land Ironclads to premiere at Crisis

Brigade Models will be releasing their first Belgian Land Ironclad models at Crisis. From their announcement:
We'll be back at the Crisis show in Antwerp next week, and this year we've really got into the Belgian theme. As well as the WWI Carabinier Cyclists released recently, we have a bit of a surprise for our VSF chums. Debuting at the show will be three new Belgian Land Ironclads, ready to fight off the French foe. You can see some nicely painted examples from Steve Blease on the 'Yours in a White Wine Sauce' blog here: As the Belgians don't get a mention in the rulebook, Steve has also kindly agreed to produce a PDF supplement for the rules with background, stats and scenarios, which also involve the upcoming French (which have been frustratingly delayed by lack of moulds).

Erm nevermind. But wait, whats this I see? Damn it who was the slacking overlord that let the hobgoblins in? Not only did they get let in but it appears as if they have taken over the whole issue! Well we know what that means: I'm going to have to do some investigations, apply some force chokes and dark side slams as well. Now where is my light saber (looks at hobgoblin running off with it in to the depths...) Did I mention that this just hasn't been my year? Red bladed light saber swiped by a lowly hobgoblin... Word of the da Hobboz indeed. When I find the culprit its hobgoblin latrine duty for a year in the deepest darkest parts of Zharr Naggrund!
