I am delighted to be able to confirm the date of the 2016 celebration of all things 6mm as Sunday 17th July. Get that date entered into your shiny new diaries and start making your plans. In order to cater for the growing number of participants, traders and visitors we have secured the use of extra rooms off the main hall and we are already planning on how to use them.
The JOS is a show with real momentum behind it and is rapidly gaining a reputation for the number and quality of games on offer. If you want to be part of the event, just email me and I'll get them to you. The contact is [email protected] We are particularly interested in participation games for JOS16, but whatever your plans are, get them to us quickly. We actually had to turn games away this year, and it's first come, first served!
Baccus HQ is currently a flurry of activity as work on all the pre-Christmas orders, but our thoughts are already turning to the first sets of releases for 2016, amongst which will be some of these chaps..
Continuing the theme of clearing the workbench, we've released the first five of the new models for the American Civil War series with more to come over the coming weeks, plus we've added a few more of the new fantasy models to the site.
Pop along and have a look – there might be something in there for a Xmas present … you never know.
It’s yet another one of those bitter sweet news releases where I am really very happy to be able to announce the release of a new range, but at the same time have to say good bye to some very old friends.
Yes, after much delay and many missed deadlines, the new War of Spanish Succession figures are finally available.
This initial batch of releases covers all the main troop types,
All are brand new sculpts which have brought this venerable range up to current design and moulding standards. The releases are designed to mix well with the old range in terms of pose and heft. There are still a few things to come, namely the French and dismounted dragoons, Generals and some pikemen, but the core is in place for you to build and collect your armies.
The newcomers’ arrival means that the moulds for the old SS1 range have been withdrawn. For those of you who didn’t know, these were some of the first ever figures in the Baccus catalogue and they have been in circulation for fifteen years. It is pretty safe to say that the foundations for the Baccus MegaCorps Industries of today were built on SS1 and SS6. I hope that you will raise a glass to these little warriors and wish them well, although given the sheer numbers that have been sold over the years, I am sure that many of them will be soldiering on tabletop battlefields for years to come.
