So today we’re releasing the first of the new 15mm Desert Raider figures. Seven packs are available including riflemen and support weapons, command figures, tripod-mounted tri-barrel teams, snipers and the impressive Lizard Riders.

We will have stocks of the new figures at SELWG, although the hoped-for new vehicles to accompany them won’t quite be ready. And unfortunately we’ll be short of one Brigadier (and more importantly, one car down) on Sunday so that may affect what we’re able to bring. It’s more likely that we’ll drop some of the display models – the display cases look good but take up a lot of room in the car and a lot of extra stock can be fitted into the same space. So the stand may look slightly different with fewer display models, but we’ll still have as much stock as possible.

The following packs are available on the website today:

HS15-4260 – Rifles (x8) – £4.00
HS15-4261 – Support Weapons (x8) – £4.00
HS15-4262 – Command (x8) – £4.00
HS15-4263 – Tri-barrel Teams (x2) – £3.50
HS15-4267 – Lizard Riders (x2) – £3.00
HS15-4268 – Brigadier – £0.50
HS15-4270 – Sniper Teams (x2) – £2.00

These packs are not on the website yet (they will be as soon as I can get them painted and photographed) but will be available at SELWG on Sunday:

HS15-4264 – Missile Teams (x2) – £3.00
HS15-4265 – Mortar Teams (x2) – £3.50
HS15-4266 – Gun Crew (x5) – £2.50
HS15-4269 – Drivers (x4) – £1.50

And finally, here’s a teaser of their upcoming rides – we’re planning as many as a dozen variants of these dune-buggy-style vehicles in 4×4, 6×4 and half-track configurations, with armament options including AA guns and missiles. With a bit of luck we’ll have them at Salute.
