Our first show of the year is coming up in just under two weeks. Cavalier is run by the Tunbridge Wells Wargames Society and is held in the Angel Centre, Tonbridge. The show has been running for as long as we can remember, a good forty years or so, and is a very good example of a smaller wargames show with a decent mix of traders and games.
We have a smaller stand than normal at the show – this means that we’re a bit more limited in terms of what we can display, but we still aim to have as much stock as possible with us. We should have a good stock of most things, but won’t necessarily have room for them all on the stand so you might have to ask if you can’t see what you want. As always, we’re more than happy to take orders for collection at either event – simply send us an email with what you require and pay on the day, or you can order and pay in advance via the website using the ‘Collect in Person’ shipping option. The sooner the better, as I will be away for a couple of days in the week before the show.

The Waldheim Dragoons, an armoured mercenary regiment, use the missile armed A2 variant of the Icarus M2 blower tank – the same vehicle that equips the Slammers regiment, but with different armament. These are supported by the lighter M56 Daedalus medium tank along with two slightly different air-defence variants. These models came out in 15mm last year, today we’re following with the 6mm versions.
The Daedalus is speedy hover tank, armed with a 10cm powergun and a 2cm tribarrel on the commander’s hatch. The M564 Calliope carries no fewer than four linked tribarrel gatlings, which in Crucible terms amounts to a massive 12 shots per turn! The M562 variant has the same turret as the M564, but is armed with two rapid fire lasers (still amounting to eight shots per turn) and a pair of Manta light missiles for taking on more heavily armoured targets.
Crucible playsheets for the Waldheim Dragoons can be found on the Hammer’s Slammers website (along with many others).
