Acheson Creations added a new sword to their Super Robot StratoMaxx Kickstarter campaign as well as a whole bunch of new add-ons to the project.

From the update:

Hello!
First off, I’m excited to announce that Super Robot StratoMaxx now has a sword! Since the earliest concept artwork, I always envisioned this hero as having a sword but I didn’t have anything designed until now! With some HUGE help from my friend Dave at Dave Hartman Designs, I was able to get the components for the blade laser cut so I could assemble and photograph it.

Each Super Robot StratoMaxx pledge at the $90.00 mark or higher will receive one sword (kk0043) in addition to the other promised items.
In addition to the sword, I have designed a pistol for the Super Robots. This pistol is a featured Add-On of an extra $8.00. This is a Kickstarter-exclusive price! Both the pistol (kk0042) and the sword can also be purchased separately as part of our regular Add-Ons options if you pledge $13.00 or higher.

Sally 4th has some new pre-painted 10mm scale castles available over in their webshop.

From the announcement:

The focus for the last couple of months at Sally 4th has been on developing techniques for the production of pre painted kits. We believe we have found it and this week we start the process of making all of our castle models available as either unpainted kits for customers to paint themselves or as pre painted kits which simply require assembly and flocking to get them into play.

We have developed 3 colours for castles, sampled from photographs of the real thing, namely Granite, Limestone & Sandstone. Models photographed castles in the Limestone finish.

Ghost Train Games posted up a green for the Improved Mechanical Locomotive Steampack.
Looks like a fun way to spend an afternoon or to make the morning commute not so annoying.



Source

From the preview:

Based on the genius work of Doctor Atticus Johann Weintraub, the IMLS (Improved Mechanical Locomotive Steampack) are designed and built for speed. It turns foot soldiers into a cavalry force allowing the to run as fast as a horse and jump great distances. Albeit much more expensive to field than the animals, they provide a smaller and harder to hit target to enemy fire, are more reliable as it depends only on the man and their jumping capacities provide a key element to assault enemy elevated positions and fortifications. They can only operate small firearms, such as pistols and shortened shotguns, as they need a free hand for the controls but are lethal in the short distance, closing quickly before the muskets and rifles can take tax of their range edge.

Battlefront is another company out there helping your caffeine hands. They've got some new Israeli decals available.



Source

From the article:

The Suez Crisis was the Israeli's first experience of large-scale tank operations and it was quickly realised that if markings were not legible under normal conditions they were sure to be missed in the heat of combat. By the time of the Six-Day War broke out in June 1967 the Israeli Defence Force had significantly increased the size of vehicle markings in an attempt to make them more recognisable to friendly units.

GCT Studios is showing off the next model to be released for the Ito. It's Ito Masunagi, the "Red Death."



Source

From the preview:

Little is known of Itsunagi Ito’s enforcer. The “Red Death” as he is known in Okyo, named so for the mask that never leaves his face. Some whisper that Orochi’s gift has warped and distorted his face. What is clear is that his mind is definitely twisted. The apparent satisfaction he makes from cleaving his foes in half, or the calmness in battle reflects the actions of one who is teetering close to madness. Rumours and conjecture aside what is undisputable is that Masunagi Ito is a fearsome and brutal warrior on the field of battle.
