Not to be outdone by the British, our Neo-Soviets get some new heavy weapon teams in 15mm as well. Like the Brits there are two sets, but with different weapons. The first team has a tripod mounted heavy tribarrel weapon, while the other has an automatic grenade launcher. Both come in packs of two weapons each with two crew and spare ammo cases. Available on April 6th at Salute, and on the website soon after.
SF15-1267a – Neo-Soviet Tri-barrel team (x2) – £3.00
SF15-1267b – Neo-Soviet Auto-GL team (x2) – £3.00
We will have some more options available for our 1/1000th scale Modular Castles at Salute. We’ve made versions of all of the tower options (round, octagonal and square) with pointed roofs, which are commonplace in European castles. All three types come in packs of four, and when they reach the website you’ll be able to select them as options for the castle kits.
SSS-8122or – Octagonal Tower with Roof – £1.50
SSS-8122rr – Round Tower with Roof – £1.50
SSS-8122sr – Square Tower with Roof – £1.50
Our range of 15mm British sci-fi figures already has several tripod mounted crewed weapon options available. However, we also have a second set of prone crewman figures (unreleased to this point) for which there were no weapon models. So we’ve made some new guns for them and added them to our Salute line-up.
The first weapon is an anti-tank rifle, although that rather antiquated name is a bit of a misnomer as it’s somewhat more advanced than the Boyes weapon of WW2 vintage. This one is mounted on a tripod and also has a gun shield for the crew and will give a serious headache to a light tank or APC.
The second weapon is a twin-MG, inspired by our 6mm heavy weapon. This will put a huge amount of firepower downwind in the direction of any enemy infantry. Each pack contains two weapons each with two crew, a gunner and a loader with rifle.
SF15-168a – Anti-tank Rifle Team (x2) – £3.00
SF15-168a – Twin MG Team (x2) – £3.00
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
