The Xmas sale is in full swing now, so Phil and I are having to devote most of our Brigade time to casting models and packing orders. However, Phil has found time in between casting sessions to make a mould for some new bits, including the acoustic mirrors for Aeronef. I’ve stuck them on some plastic Land Ironclads bases and, in the case of the larger ‘wall’ mirror, made a simple concrete base from a piece of plasticard.
The models are already available from the Brigade website, ready for use in games of Aeronef or LI.
So we’re still rifling through the contents of the parcel. We’re been from 15mm scale to 6mm scale and now we’re dropping down again, to 1/1200th this time. Below is a picture of something of interest for Aeronef and Land Ironclads fans – an acoustic mirror and a pair of listening ears. These are based (very loosely) on the installations at Denge in Kent, built between the world wars. They are the VSF equivalent of radar, giving early warning of impending attack from the sky. David Manley wrote some rules for them in issue 42 of Ragnarok if you can get hold of a copy.
