As an extra bonus, we will now be adding FREE BASES to every pledge level. Lasercut from 2mm MDF, we'll have either 20mm or 25mm widths, in either square or circular options. (If some folk need a different size, I'm sure we can sort that out!)

Baueda is in their final week over on Indiegogo for their 15mm WWII desert fortification terrain pieces. They've got a bit to go before they reach their goal. Will your pledge be the one that sends them over?

Desert Fortifications

From the campaign:

only one week left to jump on this!

We are already producing a large range of high quality resin-cast wargame terrain, designed specifically for 15mm WWII miniatures and fully compatible with Flames of War rules. Currently, this range already includes over 30 different packs of scenic bases, objectives, bunkers, fortifications, and entrenchments, covering rural and urban theaters, and you cam pick ANY model of the whole range as reward, not necessarily the new ones!

Add these fantastic models to your battlefields! Get the best, and with a great discount!

While the range is designed specifically with a desert feel, most of these models can be used for many more armies and settings than the North African Campaign. All sandbag emplacements, for instance, would be perfect also for WWI and the Vietnam War!

Hello Everyone, It took me a while but I just worked out the amount needed to cover all the costs of the HMG and so it unlocks at £3,500. I am just checking my workings out for the Scrunt & Hatch and the 5 Prussian Scrunts, but I think they will all unlock at £4,464, will double check my maths first, plus I have to be really careful with the estimated casting costs and postage. Thanks for your patience Jackie :)
