Copplestone Castings


Midweek Snippets

We continue to move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always whirling, whirling, twirling towards the weekend. We might also be dizzy now...
Anyway, we have made it halfway through the week. And someone brought a giant bag stuffed with candy and put it in the break room here. So, while I can't give you a "fun-size" Kit-Kat through the screen (I tried, but then I has to go clean my monitor), I can give you some bite-size gaming stories.

So, for today we have: H.E.A.D. Hunters Coming to Kickstarter This Fall, Unity: A Brand New Indie RPG on the Horizon, New Fire Forge themed bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Pipmen Playing Cards (Relaunch) On Kickstarter, Rockabilly Heads Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Golem Miniatures shop is online, New Multi-Mini Deal From Nexus Miniatures, North Star Military Figures Takes Over Day-to-Day Activities of Copplestone Castings, Winter War: Free Combat Patrol supplement for 1939 Russo-Finnish War From Sally 4th, New Stygian Torsos Available From Bits of War, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter reaches the funding goal, and Final Day for Battle Arena Show On Kickstarter.

New 15mm Barbarica Cavalry Command Packs

Copplestone Castings released some new Barbarica Cavalry Command Packs over in their webshop.
Keeping barbarian cavalry in line... that's gotta be a rough job.



Source

From the release:

The production moulds for these 2 new sets were made much more quickly than I expected so they are now in stock.

FM22 Northlander Cavalry Command - 2 leaders, 2 standard-bearers and 2 hornblowers - all bearded and Northern.

FM23 Barbarian Cavalry Command - 2 leaders, 2 standard-bearers and 2 hornblowers - all clean-shaven in the traditional `Cimmerian` style.
With this range I`m using 1/100th as a base scale - so a hulking 6 foot tall barbarian is 18mm tall (to the top of his head). Lesser humans, like the Romans, will be correspondingly smaller.

K66 Schupo Sonderwagen 21 - after WW1 the German army was forbidden from having any armoured vehicles, but a loophole allowed the police force to use them. One of these police vehicles was this monster of an armoured car. Some of them were still in use in WW2.

Two new 15mm Hill Giants released by Copplestone Castings

Copplestone Castings has two new hill giants, Gog and Magog, for their 15mm fantasy line available over in their webshop.



From the release:

We've just added Gog and Magog, 2 Hill Giants, to our Barbarica 15mm fantasy range. By the standard of giants suppose they are smallish - 40mm tall which, at the 1/100 scale I chose for this range, would make them just over 13 feet tall in reality. Big enough to be powerful, but small enough not to be too overwhelming

Copplestone Castings has some new mounted White Russian Lancers available over in their webstore.



From the release:

An unexpected addition to the Back of Beyond range: some elite White Russian Lancers serving in a Chinese arlord army. These well-equipped cavalrymen are based on a unit in ChangTsung-chang`s army who wore dark green, almost black, uniforms with yellow boots.

3 new Dwarf units from Copplestone Castings

Copplestone Castings has 3 new dwarf units available in their webstore: axemen, spearmen and commanders.



From the release:

Just added 3 packs of Dwarves to the 15mm Barbarica range:

FM14 Dwarf Axemen
FM15 Dwarf Spearmen
FM16 Dwarf Command

In my alternative Roman Britain the dwarves live in the Scottish Highlands (which are a lot more mountainous than in our reality). They are usually allied with the Northlanders in their battles against the Romans, but will never fight alongside Snowtrolls.

From them to you:

AFU14 Zanzibari Regulars Marching (in a casual kind of way)

AFU15 Zanzibari Regulars in Action (by now they`ve noticed that something is going on)

The small regular army of the Sultan of Zanzibar wore white uniforms with red fezzes. If you don`t want to use them as Zanzibaris they make good all purpose askaris for a Darkest Africa campaign.
