As the next stage in getting the new site up to speed, I am delighted to be able to announce that we can now accept payment via PayPal in our shopping cart.
I know that this has been an issue with quite a few people out there, so I hope that this removed yet another subject of email correspondence!
This just about completes the first phase of development in our new home. We've settled in, found out how the heating works, met the neighbours and worked out where the local shops are. The next stage is to get the place nice and comfy and get all the old familiar bits and pieces in place. All of which is a roundabout way of saying that we are now shifting over to the process of getting all the content in place that made the old site an interesting place to visit.
The first priority will be the 'How To' stuff such as painting guides etc.
Watch out for further announcements.
The Pathfinder series of armoured fight vehicles has received its latest addition, the Pathfinder Paladin.
The Paladin is an up armoured version of the standard Pathfinder chassis; it has skirts protecting the sides, front and rear, making it much tougher, comparable with light and medium MBTs.
This extra armour should result in reduced speed; however the engine has also been upgraded so that it can match the conventional Pathfinder.
The downside is that the extra horsepower means less troop capacity, it can only carry 5 infantry as opposed to the normal 10.
The RDF have nicknamed it the vendor, as in vending machine.
The reason being that the door at the back, which is used to get in and out, has gone.
The only way in and out is through the emergency side hatches.
This means that the troops take longer to get out and are easier targets for the enemies.
In the field, it is very rare to find troops riding a Pathfinder Paladin into combat!
The variant pictured here is the Pathfinder Paladin – Warrior.
The Warrior variant has a 100mm autocannon, it is a simpler, less SMART weapon than the Pathfinder Archer’s Javelin Rocket System, but it does pack more punch.
The Pathfinder Paladin Warrior is the RDF’s solution to needing an MBT and it is pretty good at it.
It makes you wonder what an actual RDF MBT would be capable of should they produce one.
Best way to ensure your things and stuff are safe is to protect them.
Why not entrust your things and stuff to the RIK Corporation?
They will ensure they are well packed, be that box crate or indeed barrel and then palletise them and have them shipped by Easy Cargo to your destination.
If you live on Kometenmelodie, you can collect your goods from the Mariposa Landing Pad.
These are available to pre-order and will be shipped around the 10th of February.
The models shown here are the resin prototypes, the actual products are metal.
Baccus and Wargames Emporium are delighted to be able to announce that the Joy of Six Wargames show will once again be held in Sheffield on Sunday, 19th July 2015.
We have a brand-new venue, and what a great place it is. This year, we are moving lock stock and barrel to the Heartspace at Sheffield Hallam University. This is a large stylish atrium which will give a light and airy atmosphere to the event – something which will be of great relief to those of you who have suffered the Workstation main room on a baking hot July day.
The venue also has brilliant easily accessible on-site catering, and the menu will be tailored to wargamers at reasonable prices.
There is plenty of local parking all at £1.00 GBP per day, and the venue is within easy walking distance of Sheffield Mainline station and Bus Interchange.
The Joy of Six 2014 was a great success, and the new venue will enable us to make this year's show even bigger and better.
Are you a 6mm wargamer? Then get July 19th booked into your diary and start making your travel plans. It will be The 6mm wargaming event of 2015.
6mm not your thing? Don't worry. Just come along for the day and see what all the fuss is about. You'll be surprised at just what can be done with the smaller scale and just how good the games are.
