Firstly, a quick word about orders – obviously I’m back from my holiday (and very pleasant it was too), and have been casting away in the workshop on the order backlog that built up while I was in France. However, this is rather larger than usual and is taking me a while to get through – currently I’ve managed to complete orders up to the 21st, so I’m running about six days behind. By the end of Monday I should be able to clear everything that’s still outstanding, and by the end of next week we should be back to normal.
We still have room for a new release however, since Phil made some moulds while I was away.
Our Squadron Commander range of models is based around the ruleset of the same name, originally published by the now-defunct Mariner Games, but now owned and maintained by us (you can download the latest Reheat edition for free here). The models are all made to 1/300th scale, which means as well as providing a great game of interstellar starfighter combat, they are also perfect as ground support for our 6mm Sci-Fi range of vehicles and figures.
Today we’re adding new force options to those available – both the South African Confederation (SAC) and the Pacific Federation (PacFed) get two brand new fighter types each.
For the SAC, interceptor duties are handled by the Hamerkop heavy interceptor, while the Petrel multi-role fighter can be equipped with heavy anti-shipping missiles or pressed into surface as a fighter with short-range dogfight missiles.
The PacFed’s two models are the Sea Wasp heavy attack fighter, and the Weta light interceptor.
All models are available individually or in flights of four with bases. The arrival of the PacFed also allows us to create a starter pack pitting them against the Indonesians – this pack contains four of each available model for both sides, a total of sixteen fighters, plus the latest rulebook on CD in PDF format.
SCR-005 – PacFed-Indonesian Starter Pack – £30.00
SCR-601 – Petrel Multi-role Fighter – £2.50
SCR-602 – Hamerkop Heavy Interceptor – £2.50
SCR-701 – Sea Wasp Attack Fighter – £2.50
SCR-702 – Weta Light Interceptor – £2.25
