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.

New Desert Domes

The 6mm Desert Dome buildings released at Salute seem to have struck a chord with many gamers, so it was inevitable that we’d want to follow up with some more. I did a little bit of tinkering with my 3D design software to come up with five new buildings of various types, and the prints of these turned up earlier this week. I haven’t yet had time to fit them with doors and windows but you get the idea I’m sure. I’m hoping to be able to cast the large multi-dome one in the foreground in one piece.

I’ve also been working at new 15mm vehicles – this is the Ratel medium tank for our South African force, scaled up from the 6mm original but with a heap of extra detail.

And lastly, here’s another new 15mm building – an upscale of the 6mm Plinth Dwelling. Which seems currently to be in use as a Chinese command post…

Desert Domes Released

Some of the most popular new models on Saturday were our 6mm Desert Dome buildings, so appropriately enough they are the first to be added to the website. There are five buildings of varying sizes which are all available now. In the photo below you can see a few of our Mercenary 6mm vehicles, which are next on the release list.

6mm Mercenaries

MercHeader

I spent yesterday at the workshop stocking up on our new releases, including the 6mm Mercenaries. I’ve also painted a sample set (as you can see above) and we’re really pleased with the way these have come out.

We will have a number of packs available for the Mercenaries, so today we thought we’d detail the contents.

IC-1501 – Mercenary Army Pack – £35.00
Contains: 12 Sohei (9 with DS gun and 1 each with powergun, gatling and laser); 12 Shaman (9 standard and 3 Firefly); 8 Magnus APC; 4 Legion Rocket Launchers; 3 Wizard Jeep; 48 infantry
IC-1511 – Mercenary Light Tank Company – £8.75
Contains: 12 Shaman (9 standard and 3 Firefly);1 Wizard Jeep
IC-1512 – Mercenary Heavy Tank Company – £14.00
Contains: 12 Sohei (9 with DS gun and 1 each with powergun, gatling and laser); 1 Wizard Jeep
IC-1513 – Mercenary Infantry Company – £11.75
Contains: 8 Magnus APC; 1 Wizard Jeep; 48 infantry
IC-1511 – Mercenary Support Company – £8.75
Contains 4 Legion Rocket Launchers; 4 Warlock Support Tanks; 4 Ontos Tank Destroyers; 1 Wizard Jeep

Most of our Mercenary stock will be concentrated in packs on Saturday; we won’t have a great deal of individual models to sell. The new batch of moulds that we’ve used to produce these new releases are giving us a little bit of trouble – they seem to get hot very quickly and start flashing. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but when you’re trying to churn out lots and lots of models in a hurry it gets very frustrating.

Today is also your final, final chance to get in any pre-orders. I’m casting resin models today and tomorrow is the last day at the workshop casting metal – Friday will be spent packing the van and travelling up to the ExCel to start setting up the stand.

Desert Domes

Sneaking onto the Salute release list at the last minute are some new SF buildings. These are a new style, constructed of overlapping domes and cylinders – a move away from the Middle-eastern style of the existing desert models.

DesertDomes

Five models will be available on Saturday, exact stocks depend on how many more I can cast this week …
