We previewed the new German 15mm vehicles during the 12 days of Christmas posts, but the pictures were of the CGI artwork rather than the actual models. So here are photos of the models themselves, awaiting a bit of cleanup and light sanding but almost ready for moulding.
While you’ve been enjoying our Twelve Days of Christmas previews, we’ve been beavering away behind the scenes – mainly on clearing the massive sale backlog (getting there … still quite a few orders to go) but we’ve also been been preparing the way for new releases. As promised, with the New Year comes the first of our new wave of 15mm SF vehicles. We’re finishing off the last of the production moulds for the PacFed vehicles which will be the first to appear – you can see below the first assembled versions of (L-R) the Wombat MICV, Cougar MBT and Ocelot light tank. The Wombat and Cougar will be available in a week or so – just as soon as the last sale orders are clear. The Ocelot will follow soon after, along with the Minigwal recce vehicle. And, of course, there’s the small matter of the Neo-Soviets and Germans to follow, not to mention all the other ranges.
I’m aiming to get these painted for a club meeting at the weekend, but I suspect that the order backlog might get in the way of that !
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
The Royal Space Navy;
Thank you – we hope you’ve enjoyed our twelve-day preview marathon. Now to get on with making some of these designs real !
Sample designs spaceships from the British Royal Space Navy. These are very much work-in-progress, the destroyers define the style but the rest of the fleet still needs a lot of work. Hopefully the first wave will be ready for Salute in April.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
A PacFed recce vehicle;
The re-designed PacFed Minigwal scout vehicle. Look out for this to be released in February.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
Two Indonesian Republic fighters for Squadron Commander; also handy as air-support for the 6mm scale IndRep vehicles
. Due for release in March.
On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
A control tower and blockhouse;
A 6mm desert airfield control tower and a reinforced blockhouse (for storing munitions). Another pair of models we were hoping to show the masters of rather than just CGI, but again the masters have been delayed by the Xmas break. Release date TBD.
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
A 15mm scale turreted bunker; shown here with
Bizon turrets, but all of our 15mm tanks will have the same-size turret ring so it should take any of them. Pencilled in for an April release.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
15mm scale versions of some more advanced houses; these still have the builders in, so are devoid of doors, windows and more detailing, which is why they look spookily like a construction site. Release date TBD (you know what builders are like !).
UPDATE – this old post still seems to attract a number of referrals from other websites and blogs, so if you’ve come here several years later then you might like to know that these models are in production and available – just click HERE
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
More teeny-tiny 2mm buildings; this time middle-eastern buildings including mosques (with interchangeable minarets) and small forts. Due for release in February.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
Five German tanks !
Re-designed 15mm versions of the German Thor tank and Lynx APC, with turret variants. Already off for mould-making, and due for release in March.
