Probably our least exciting post of the year, but it has to be done … 🙂
We’ve had the Royal Mail’s last recommended posting dates for Christmas this year; I’ve listed them below, something to bear in mind if you’re buying presents and want them to arrive in time for December 25th. Also bear in mind that I can’t always dispatch orders on the day they arrive, especially at this time of year when we’re busy with the sale. As you can see, you still have plenty of time.
UK (First Class mail) – Thursday December 20th
France/Belgium/Eire/Luxembourg – Tuesday December 18th
Western/Central Europe (airmail) – Monday December 17th
Canada/USA/Czech Rep/Poland/Italy – Friday December 14th
Greece/Turkey/Australia/NZ – Monday December 10th
Cyprus/Malta/Asia/Far East/Eastern Europe – Friday December 7th
Talking of the sale, I’m doing reasonably well – I have caught up a bit. All but a handful of orders up to last Thursday (22nd) have been sent, and several after that date (mostly orders for just rulebooks, which don’t need any casting and can be sent immediately). I have three huge orders to do that will occupy all of my time today, but by the end of this week I hope to have the backlog down to manageable proportions.
Now to see who reads all the way down this far … thanks ! Here’s a preview of a new Hammer’s Slammers tank destroyer, the Silverback. Readers of Miniature Wargames will have seen this already in the review section, but it’ll be new to the rest of you. I have masters for the 15mm and 6mm (hi David !) versions and production moulds for the 15mm hull have already been made, I’m just waiting on Phil to make the master mould for the metal parts. It’ll be one of our first releases of 2019 and might even squeeze in the back end of this year. It’s a bit of a monster, equal in size to a Slammer’s M2 blower tank and carrying the largest gun (25cm powergun) of any vehicle in the Crucible.
We've recently released the NATO M270 MLRS Multiple Rocket Launcher.
The M270 MLRS may be armed with either:
12 x M26 rockets in two pods of six,
or 2 x M39 missiles, one in each pod.
The M270 MLRS can be reloaded quickly by simply exchanging the pods rather than loading each rocket individually.
Consequently the reload pods are available in pairs.
- A pair of M26 rocket pods
- Or a pair of M39 missile pods
6mm is £1.00
12mm is £4.25
15mm is £6.25
20mm is £12.50
28mm is £26.50
M2 - Initial IFV (M2A1 is identical externally)
M2A2 - More armour, available with or without ERA (Explosive reactive armour)
M2A3 - Adds Commander’s Independent Viewer (CIV) to the turret, with or without ERA
M3 - Initial CFV (Cavalry fighting vehicle), identical to M2 without firing ports
M3A1 - Almost identical to M3 but without some periscopes
M3A2 - More armour, available with or without ERA (Explosive reactive armour)
M3A3 - Adds Commander’s Independent Viewer (CIV) to the turret, with or without ERA
