A Time of Prosperity

We’re back in 15mm again today, with some brand new Hammer’s Slammers vehicles. One of the more memorable stories in the series is Rolling Hot, which deals with the campaign on the planet of Prosperity and particularly the story of Captain June Ranson and the relief of the siege of the city of Kohang by a scratch column of Slammers’ armour. That story can be found in volume two of The Complete Hammer’s Slammers:

A number of different vehicles pop up in the book – the civilian Cyclos we released a month ago come from this particular story. The climax of the tale is a large armoured engagement between the Slammers and a battalion of Prosperity Nationalist light tanks, and our first release of the week is the Colonial Light Tank with a variety of weapon options including light artillery, air defence and a tank destroyer with a remote railgun.

Also mentioned is a Marine ‘amphibious landing vehicle’ with machine-gun armament. This has resulted in the Pioneer class APC, an amphibious tracked vehicle with a variety of light weapons.

Finally for this week, the Consie Rebels have a powergun on a cruciform mount. It turns out that the standard 8-barrel Calliope mount also fits this base nicely to create a fixed AA weapon.
