New Spaceships from Brigade Models

ShanziRelease

We have two new spaceships on the website today. The first is a re-master of the Shanzi class fighter carrier, one of the oldest models in our range. The new version keeps the overall design of the original but with much improved styling and detail. The second model is the German Maas-class Destroyer Leader, a master that’s been kicking around for a while but which we’ve finally got into a production mould. Both available from the website now, and the Shanzi is also available in a carrier pack with fighters and escorts.

SFS-510 – Shanzi class Fleet Carrier – £9.00
SFS-331 – Maas class Destroyer Leader – £1.75

28mm PDF New Orleans Warehouse from Finger and Toe

Warehouse

Everybody knows Bourbon Street, the bars, the dives, the haunted places, but New Orleans in the nineteenth century was very much a working city. Not far from the famous (and infamous) French Quarter was the warehouse district. If the goods came upriver from the Gulf or down river from Westport, they were stored in warehouses built within easy reach of the Big Muddy. Cargo legal and smuggled went through those brick buildings.

The New Orleans Warehouse represents one of those commercial buildings. With a 12″x8″ footprint, this is a large model. It is designed so the two parts can be built as a single building or as two standalones.

Latest Releases from Bombshell Miniatures posted

Capitan Games Releases Strategikon Ancient-Medieval rules Spanish Edition

strategikon_p

Now available for pre-order with shipment at the end of February, is the Spanish Edition of our Ancient/ Medieval rules “STRATEGIKON”, price £20.00 GBP (24€) (shipping within Spain is free). The rules contain 56 pages (grey scale) inside with a colour cover and with excellent illustrations and 34 army lists from the Ancient period to the Middle Ages.

“STRATEGIKON” is a simple but highly historically accurate set of rules that uses a command and control system which allows players to play medium to large size battles. A basic 400-point army can be used to fight tournaments, or to play historical battles and is included in the army lists. The game can be played with miniatures of any scale, without changing base sizes, including such smaller armies as the ones used in DBA. As with all our games, we propose a standard basing convention but players can play with their existing basing systems. In a few months, we shall make the English version available.

More new model previews for Alternative Civil War

Ghost Train Games is releasing more models for his Alternative Civil War.
Spanish Starter Set’s Officer, Ponce de León, is a highly detailed model, yet not baroque and overloaded. The anachronism of the breastplate and morion helmet over a modern uniform and the “flintlock pistol-like” revolver creates a contrast that reflects the duality of the Spanish faction.

The Living Totem of Nature is a huge multi-part model set on 50mm base. They bring heavy hitting power as well as board control to the Natives and will be a gorgeous model in your collection once you set some colorful paint on it.

LaserCutCard container price drop

Thanks to the steady devaluation of the South African Rand, our postal costs have actually come DOWN.

Our DL range now costs $1 to ship worldwide

Our thin C5 range now costs $2 to ship worldwide

Our thicker C5 range and C4 range now cost $4 to ship worldwide.

On top of this, the entire shipping container range is being re-released – starting with the shipping containers themselves. These have had their cutting file totally redone to optimise it and as a result the 3 container set has dropped in price from $18.50 for 3 to $14.95 for 3. Nice!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Any chance you can go back to posting individual items rather than these roundups? I much prefer the old system.

    • We are looking into potential solutions. No timetable for implementation as of yet, though.

  • Sisyphus

    It’s a little sad to say but… I remember the time when people used to discus postings quite a lot. After the “changeover” to the different owners things quieted a bit and it seemed a new group of individuals who did the comments. But over time, the amount of people commenting has dropped… maybe this site is losing membership or maybe people are less inclined to talk?

      some were banned for speaking their minds

      I agree with these comments. What made this site great was the broad spectrum of articles. I bought stuff I never even would have found otherwise, now it’s GW and KS all the time. So I spend more time direct on company sites, though that doesn’t help me find new minis or games.

  • All this stuff bundled into a single note while the rest of the site is full of Games Workshop and Kickstarter stuff along with the occasional boardgame.
    Sad.
