Brigade Models Releases 2mm Scale City Blocks

Many European city centres are built, at least partially, on a block system. The blocks of apartments generally have shops or offices on the ground floor with 4-6 levels of apartments above that. They surround a central courtyard which can be a garden space, parking or can sometimes be partially filled with smaller buildings and sheds. A perfect example of this is Barcelona’s appropriately named Eixample district.

Today we’ve released what we hope should be some very useful City Apartment Blocks. We’ve created three sets – a pack of four corners, another of four straight blocks, and a third consisting of two T-pieces and two straight pieces with an archway into the courtyard area. The blocks are built on a 40mm footprint – each corner is 40x40mm with the depth of the apartments set at 20mm. This means that a pack of four corners will create a block 80x80mm square, with a central 40x40mm courtyard. Adding straight pieces means that the blocks can be extended in 40mm increments. For gaming purposes, this works perfectly with rules that use 40mm frontages for figure bases, as units can be placed in the courtyards to indicate that buildings are occupied.

SSS-8094 – City Block Corners – £7.50
SSS-8095 – City Block Straights – £5.00
SSS-8096 – City Block Ts and Arches – £6.50

Crocodile Games Releases Remastered Abominable Snowbeast

He’s big, he’s hairy, and he’s back – now in resin at a lower price… the Abominable Snowbeast returns to Crocodile Games!

The Abominable Snowbeast model is one of the largest figures that we produce, nearly a pound of metal and lots of parts to assemble. We’ve always wanted to be able to sell it for a better price, and to make it easier to assemble, so we’ve teamed up with On The Lamb Games (specialists on resin production) to produce an improved model – made in high-quality resin.

What did we do differently with this version? The new Snowbeast has been remastered from Ben Siens’s original sculpture, but is now lighter, less expensive, and with fewer pieces to assemble. The body/chest area has now been made into one single piece, rather than 2 parts that were difficult to glue, and inevitably ended up with gaps that had to be filled with putty. The new model fits together much easier! What’s more, the resin castings actually have less distortion than the earlier metal castings. And did we mention that it is now less expensive? We’re now able to sell this giant model for $59.95, that is $15 less than the old price of the metal casting.

The Wendigo Summoner model is still included, and he still has a metal body – but his horn is now in resin. Because the resin is a little lighter than the metal, the Summoner is now less top-heavy, so he’ll stay on his feet when the Snowbeast stomps around, shaking the table!
