Desert Towers Released

Today we’re adding the last of the new Salute items to the website, plus an extra bonus item.

We have three larger towers in our 6mm Desert Buildings range, all of which are one piece resin castings with small metal accessories in the form of rooftop aerials. These share the same characteristics as the rest of the desert range – solid cast construction with few, if any, windows to keep out the vicious Martian sandstorms. I find that coming up with descriptive names for buildings is always tricky, the best I can manage is generic terms like ‘large square tower’ – so apologies for that! The buildings are available singly or in a pack with one of each. And while we’re on desert building packs, we’ve created another bundle of some of the existing buildings that aren’t already in one of the other sets under the title of ‘Large Dwellings Pack’.

May2016Release

As a bonus, we also have the domed radar building we teased you with before Salute. I’ve made a new mould which works much better than the original so we’re now happy to release it (although the painted model below is from the original mould – the damaged part of the model is out of sight in this view).

Last Minute Additions

I’ve been tinkering over recent weeks with some of the remaining unreleased former ArmiesArmy moulds. In fact, some of the moulds we have are for items that as far as we know were never released, which includes these. In ArmiesArmy service these would have been RUSK Militia troops, but we’ve co-opted them into our Neo-Soviet army as conscript troops. There are three packs – infantry (squad leader, SAW gunner, AT rocket and six riflemen), command (six assorted figures including a splendidly-hatted kommissar) and support weapons (AT missile team, two man-portable gatling teams, sniper and a short-barrelled energy weapon). We’ve had some issues with one of the original moulds which we’ll have to remake, but we’ve managed to squeeze out a small amount of stock for tomorrow from the original one.

The photos below are from ArmiesArmy’s originals – so the pack contents aren’t exactly the same as we’ll be selling, but at least you get to see what the figures look like.

We also have a small amount of stock of their companion Guard figures with the same trio of infantry, command and support packs.

And lastly, we are taking some stock of Angel Barracks‘ excellent 6mm character pack containing thirty superb sci-fi figures.

I’m off to London this afternoon to begin setting up the stand, and we look forward to seeing you from 10am tomorrow.

Something for the Smaller Gamer

For the smaller scale gamer, there’s no heightism here at Brigade. Four more new moulds were uncorked yesterday, containing a selection of 6mm scale buildings in our Desert range. The first three are a selection of assorted towers to give a bit more variation in height to a desert cityscape. They come with a random selection of small metal aerials that fit to the top. We’re thinking of adopting one as the our new HQ – the real Brigade Towers.

Building number four came into being as a result of some of the comments on our 15mm moonbase and its resemblance to Fylingdales Moor radar housing. So I’ve created a facetted geodome to house a radar and fitted it to a desert style bunker, a model which should nicely complement our existing Control Tower model. Sadly I’m only teasing with this one, as the mould was damaged and the castings aren’t up to scratch, which is a shame as it’s a rather nice model. The mould will have to be remade and released after the show (only a couple of weeks or so).

6mm PacFed Armoured Infantry

Last week we released our new 6mm Polish infantry, sculpted by Martin Baker. This week it’s the turn of the Pacific Federation figures, which are heavily armoured with more advanced weapons

SF300-770-1

The contents of each pack is the same as the Polish, with enough figures to make three identical squads of a squad leader, five riflemen, a SAW and an anti-tank missile launcher. Again, there are three different riflemen poses to avoid too much repetition.

SF300-770-2

SF300-770 – PacFed Infantry Platoon – £2.75

SF300-770

As with the Polish, all PacFed packs that contain infantry will now contain the new figures instead of the older generic ones.

Age of Tyrants

AgeofTyrants Logo

Last week we featured Polyversal, Collins Epic Wargames’ 6mm mass combat game which features some of our models in the Kickstarter campaign. Today we’re looking at another current Kickstarter with which we are involved, Age of Tyrants. This only has a short while left to run (less than two days when this post appears) so if you want to back the project, don’t wait around ! Age of Tyrants is a mass combat 6mm SF game, like Polyversal, but in a different style – the game has its own miniatures which feature lots of very big tanks as well as infantry.

Our involvement in this game is supplying buildings from our existing 6mm ranges. We’ve set up several packs which can be added to your pledges

Polish 6mm Infantry Released

We previewed our new 6mm infantry a few weeks ago, and the first pack has hit the website today. The Polish Infantry are near-future in style with open-faced helmets and assault rifles, along with RPG-style anti-tank weapons and light machine guns.

SF300-1370

Each pack of 24 figures has enough figures to make three identical squads of a squad leader, five riflemen, a SAW and an anti-tank weapon. There are three different riflemen poses so that your units won’t look too uniform.

SF300-1370-1

SF300-1370 – Polish Infantry Platoon – £2.75

All Polish packs that contain infantry will now contain the new figures instead of the older generic ones.

Polyversal

Polyversal is a 6mm Sci-Fi mass combat miniatures game system by Collins Epic Wargames, compatible with all 6mm miniatures by means of a customisation and design system.

Polyversal

The reason we’re flagging it up on out blog is that there is currently a Kickstarter running to support development and release of the game, and in the starter box you will get a number of our 6mm SF models.

Polyv-1

The campaign got off to a good start and runs for another seven weeks or so, with an aim to shipping in November. Don’t worry, we’ll remind you nearer the time 🙂

Tiny Soldiers

I know I’m supposed to be slaving away at the workshop again today, and I will be soon, after I’ve dropped off the latest batch of orders at the post office. But I had to share these photos first, which arrived yesterday.

These are 6mm versions of some of our 15mm figures, created by Martin Baker (who also sculpted their larger cousins). To start with he’s made infantry and support weapons for the Poles and PacFed, thus giving us conventional lighter infantry as well as heavily armoured figures. Given their size, we think the detail on these is pretty amazing. We’ll be releasing them in the next 2-3 months.

Street Convenience

We have two new releases today, one each in our 6mm and 15mm SF ranges.

Dealing with the smaller scale first, we have some new dwellings in our Desert Domes range of 6mm buildings. These are simple structures built as housing for miners and colonists. There are four models that differ slightly in number and placement of doors and windows which will be supplied randomly when you order.

B300-411

We’ve also added two Desert Dome building packs, with a mix of buildings in each, discounted against buying the same models individually.

Our larger scale offering this week is a pack of Street Furniture compatible with our existing Desert Buildings. The pack contains a number of useful bits and pieces to bring life to your Martian village – stone benches, small planters, advertising hoardings, public communications terminals and a pair of useful booths. The latter could be used as public conveniences, videophone kiosks or even suicide booths! The advertising hoardings are designed to hold three standard 1.8m by 1.2m posters, so you can scale down your favourite ads to 1/100th scale (18x12mm), print them out and stick them on. In all the pack contains 15 resin items.

Dome Developments

As promised, we have more additions to our range of 6mm Desert Domes. Strictly speaking, only one of these really is a dome, but they follow the curved and rounded styles of the previous set.
