Salute is the largest show on the UK gaming calendar – this year it’s a little earlier than usual, April 6th, at the now established venue in London’s ExCel centre. Once again Brigade will be in attendance, and you can find us on stand TE16). As always we try to bring a number of new items across our ranges, and this post is where you will find them all. It will be regularly updated as we release details of each new model, and we’ll stick it to the top of the blog until the show it over so it’s easy to find.
We’re happy to take orders for the show – you can either place an order and pay in advance using the collect in person option on the website, or just drop us an email with a list and pay on the day (cash or card). Our ranges have grown so much that even at a show as big as Salute we can no longer bring large quantities of every model, so if you’re after something in particular and want to guarantee that we have it then it’s wise to get your order in early. It’s often difficult to judge demand for new releases so they can sometimes sell out quickly.
Next on the Salute list for this year are some additions to our 15mm Moonbase range (well, we say range, until now it’s only been a single model!).
There are three new models – two hemispherical buildings, a storage dome and a habitable utility dome, and a pair of oxygen (or any other gas/liquid) storage tanks.
The utility dome has a spot for a radar on the roof, or alternatively that can be replaced with a missile or gun turret.
You can see some of these buildings in action on the Warlords’ Moon 2039 game at the show (table GF15) – it’s also featured in the show guide that came with this month’s Miniature Wargames magazine. There’s a photo of them ready for the game below.
B15-603 – Storage Dome – £5.00
B15-604 – Utility Dome – £7.00
B15-605 – LOX Tanks (x2)- £3.00
Keeping the fleet fully supplied with fuel and vittles is the job of this massive beast, the Fort Linton class Replenishment Ship. Part of our ever expanding range of British spaceships, this resin and metal kit is 110mm long with separate fuel and cargo pods the fit underneath the main hull.
The Fort Linton will be available at Salute along with the rest of our spaceship ranges.
SFS-175 – Fort Linton class Replenishment Ship – £10.00
The Waldheim Dragoons is a mercenary outfit with Germanic origins, tracing its roots back to Saxony on Old Earth. They are a heavy armoured unit equipped mainly with blower vehicles, including the earlier A2 and A5 versions of the same M2 tank used by Hammer’s Slammers. They also use lighter Daedalus medium tanks and the GD-900 hover APC, which are the subject of today’s new releases.
The Daedalus has a domed turret equipped with a 10cm powergun and 2cm tribarrel. Although ostensibly a larger weapon, it doesn’t quite match the hitting power of the High Intensity version fitted to the Waldheim’s M2A2 tanks. Defensively the tanks are fitted with the Drozd active defense system to ward off missiles.
There is also an air-defence version which has its turret replaced by one fitted with three long-barrelled 2cm tri=barrel powerguns capable of knocking down incoming artillery shells and missiles.
The GD-900 is a simple ‘battle-taxi’ APC which can carry up to eight infantry and has an AI-controlled 2cm tri-barrel for self-defence on the commander’s hatch. They can also tow the 5cm HI Powerguns used by the Waldheim’s infantry.
There are also two 10-TU detachment packs available, Light and Heavy Armoured, taken from the Waldheim’s detachment sheet for Hammer’s Slammers:The Crucible.
HS15-1912 – Daedalus Medium Tank – £8.00
HS15-1912a – Daedalus AA Tank – £8.00
HS15-1913 – GD-900 APC – £8.00
