Today sees the release of our remastered French Charlemagne Aeronef models. There are three slightly different hull types and three superstructures, so in keeping with French naval building practices of the time, no two ships are quite the same ! Altogether, with the different hulls, superstructures and armament layouts, we reckon there are 48 slightly different models that could be created.
Sneaking into the corner of one of the photos is an Austro-Hungarian Novara class Heavy Destroyer, obviously on a diplomatic assignment. This model is also available today, as are packs of the new Charlemagne turrets.
VAN-401 – Charlemagne Battlecruiser – £8.00 GBP VAN-711 – Novara Heavy Destroyer – £2.00 GBP VAN-7044 – French Single Heavy Turrets (x10) – £1.50 GBP VAN-7045 – French Double Heavy Turrets (x10) – £1.50 GBP
In the run up to Crisis Phil sprang a surprise by turning up with two new moulds of 28mm WW1 Belgians – NCOs and Buglers. He's finished painting and photographing some sample figures so we're pleased to say that they've been added to the website and are available for purchase.

Following up from last week's South African release, we have new turret options for the two APC types released today. We have a support turret with a low velocity infantry gun that fires heavy HE or squash-head shells for clearing out enemy strongpoints. To keep the skies clear, there's an AA turret with a single rapid-fire autocannon coupled with two twin Boomslang light AA missile launchers. The turrets fit both the Buffel and Wildebeest and all four versions are available from our website now.
As well as these four new vehicle options, we also have a new, half-sized version of our cargo container available.
SF15-603c - Buffel Support - £8.25 SF15-603d - Buffel AA - £8.25 SF15-607a - Wildebeest Support - £8.75 SF15-607c - Wildebeest AA - £8.75 SF15-915 - Small Cargo Container - £1.75
Last week we took our new 15mm South African vehicles to Crisis, and this week they're generally available from the website.
The Buffel is a lighter, four-wheeled counterpart to the existing Wildebeest APC. It comes with a choice of top hatch with MG, light twin MG turret or triple light missile mount (the same turrets as the Wildebeest’s forward mount).
The Hippo on the other hand is a six-wheeled flatbed load carrier capable of hauling very heavy loads across rough terrain.
