New Axemaidens for SAGA Available From Brother Vinni

Most of the time, the figures from Brother Vinni are system-agnostic. But, in this case, they’re for SAGA, the dark ages game of combat and might. They have released a new set of 4 Axemaidens. And I’m guessing they’re not just waving those axes because their Viking husbands forgot to take out the trash again.

Battlefront Launches ‘Nam Website, Has Sale on Stock

My dad was drafted for the Vietnam war. Though he never ended up in-country, he did train to drive an APC. Considering what I learned later during a Vietnam War History class that I took, I’m glad he didn’t end up over there. It probably wouldn’t’ve gone well. The Vietnam War is one that’s not often talked about in gaming circles. But Battlefront is looking to change that with ‘Nam, their minis game set during that conflict. They’ve got a new website up and running, and they’re celebrating with a sale on everything in the shop.

Achaean Archers, Libyan Close Fighters + Nubian/Kushite Close Fighters now Available For Hail Caesar

Ostfront Releases Missile Threat (Modern Air Combat) Rules

I’d sort of always wanted to be a fighter pilot. My eyes have never been good enough for that sort of thing, but it was one of those dreams I had in the back of my mind as a kid.

It’s a new set of air combat rules by Ostfront that looks to accurately recreate air battles from the past 60 years. You can get your copy now (aviator glasses sold separately).

Box sets are handy when you want to get an entire unit of figures at once. But what about when you just need a single figure?

New Supplement and Starter Armies For Black Powder Available To Order From Warlord Games

Napoleon went a little bit of everywhere across Europe during his conquests.

New Starter Army Sets Available For Hail Caesar

For many hundreds of years, warfare was practiced in a certain way in the Western world. Armies of soldiers lined up shoulder-to-shoulder, with a round shield in front of them and a long spear in hand. The phalanx was the ancient world’s version of the tank, essentially. And even as military advancements came along, the idea of standing shoulder-to-shoulder stuck for quite a long time. Well, if you’re wanting to get back to war’s roots, you can with these new starter armies for the Greeks and Spartans (yes, I know that Sparta was part of Greece, but look, I don’t name these things. Plus, the various city-states really didn’t consider themselves one country (far from it, in fact), so there’s that as well) for Hail Caesar.

Blitzfreeze Campaign for Five Men in Normandy Now Available

As cold as it might get here in Atlanta, it’s nothing like the cold that can hit Russia.

New Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column Available From Warlord Games

I love a parade. I mean, I was in Marching Band for many years, and so I’ve participated in quite a few. The pomp. The pageantry. The colorful uniforms. Granted, it’s not just a parade when it’s during a campaign. Those long lines of troops aren’t just showing off. They’re headed to the battlefield. At the head of the column is usually a band and certainly drummers, letting people know that the military is on the move.

Gangs of Rome Now Available From Warlord Games

As the Roman Empire aged, it didn’t do so gracefully. Corruption ate away at the noble core, Rome, itself. As powerful individuals vied for even more power, they would get together gangs to take to the streets.

Now you can recreate those times with Gangs of War, a new miniatures skirmish game available now from Warlord Games.
Want to try it before you buy it? They’ve got a free rules download available.

Early Egyptian and Nubian Javelinmen Available From Warlord Games

Early warfare was pretty simple (relatively speaking). Take a stick. Attach something really pointy to the end. Throw at the enemy. In a way, we’re not really all that different now (just the points don’t have to be as sharp, or the sticks as big, because we make those things go really, really, really fast). But if you’d like to have your warfare at throwing distance, Warlord Games can help with some new Egyptian and Nubian Javelinmen kits.
