ArmiesArmy 15mm Pegasus VTOL preorders

Printed VTOL

The Bell Boeing V-212 Pegasus is a United Nations multi-mission, tilt rotor military aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short take-off and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The V-212 originated from the United Nations Weapons Research laboratories which escaped damage during the ‘Great Purge’ due to its hidden location in the Eden Section. For takeoff and landing, it typically operates as a helicopter with the nacelles vertical and rotors horizontal. Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90° in as little as 6 seconds for horizontal flight, converting the V-212 to a more fuel-efficient, high speed turboprop aircraft. STOL rolling-takeoff and landing capability is achieved by having the nacelles tilted forward up to 45°.Other orientations are possible, such as the "80 Jump" take-off which uses nacelles at 80° to quickly achieve high altitude and speed.

Composite materials make up 95% of the airframe, and prop rotor blades. Most missions use fixed wing flight 75% or more of the time, reducing wear and tear and operational costs.
The V-212 can carry a squad of 8 – 10 troops and its two pilots. For flak and infantry suppression the Pegasus is armed with dual 20mm Gatling cannon, controlled by the co-pilot and 6 multipurpose missile systems, 3 on each wing. Dedicated spec ops and Gunship versions are also under research at the UMWRL. A Quad aircraft is also under evaluation

The V-212 Pegasus VTOL is ready for preorders at a special price of £12.99 (RRP is £13.99) or a pack of three for £37.50. Preorders will be open for three weeks and delivery will begin one week after if not sooner. Resin and metal casting are currently in progress.

The Pegasus comes in several parts. Two tilt rotors, one hull, one tail and then two sets of undercarriage to represent them raised or lowered two Gatling Cannon and two rocket systems.

Preorders will begin on September the 21st ending on October the 12th. Orders will then ship that week.
The cost of one Pegasus is £12.99 (reduced from £13.99) or three for £37.50

Please drop me a note if you have any questions or would like a larger order :)

Thanks for supporting ArmiesArmy. I hope you like this as much as I do!

The Lowry Agency Announces Their New Quick Sell Video Series

Club Fantasci

The Lowry Agency in association with Club Fantasci have announced their new video series entitled Quick Sell to the board game, role-playing game and card game industry. The series is based on a growing need for publishers to distinguish their game from other games coming out at such a rapid pace in this new era of gaming.

The Quick Sell series came about after several meetings and conversations with several industry professionals after seeing a need for deeper marketing and positioning in the industry. With so many new games coming to market through traditional and crowdfunding sources, the ability to cut through the white noise is more important than ever.
