As previously mentioned, I missed Colours this weekend because of a rather more important event. The Brigadieress and I are also away for a short break, so although the website will remain open, I won’t be around until the very end of this week and there will be a slower than usual turnaround on orders for the 7-10 days and delays in answering queries.
Because of this, we’ve decided to hold onto any new models and will instead release them at Tabletop Gaming Live in a fortnight. Previews will be along soon…
You still have a week or so to place orders for collection at TTGL, I’ll be casting the last ones on the Wednesday before the show.
Tabletop Gaming Live is a new event being held at Alexandra Palace in a couple of weeks. We will be there on stand G21 in The Great Hall.
We will take as much stock as possible but we’re limited to what will fit in my car – we’ll have a full set of Celtos figures and packs, Aeronef and Spaceship fleet packs, a selection of Aeronef battleships, 6mm army, company and building packs, 15mm vehicles and figures, 6mm and 15mm Hammer’s Slammers detachment packs (and hopefully a few new ones), the complete range of Small Scale Scenery, Squadron Commander flights, all of the Crom’s Anvil range of 15mm fantasy figures, our Great War Belgians and Magpie miniatures.
Unless I miraculously find some extra space, we won’t be able to carry individual models from the 6mm, Aeronef and Spaceships ranges (apart from some Nef battleships which you’ll find on our blister rack). We’re also unlikely to have room for our 6mm, 10mm and 15mm SF buildings apart from the 6mm building packs.
Usually we only have one of each pack available, apart from the new releases or popular packs, so if you want to be certain of getting hold of the pack you want, you can place an advance order. You can either 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. Pre-orders need to be with us by Tuesday of the week before the show at the latest (September 25th) in order for us to have a chance of getting them ready.
Tabletop Gaming Live
Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th September 2018
Alexandra Palace, London, N22 7AY
9.00am – 6.00pm Saturday
9.00am – 5.00pm Sunday
Gringo40's will be at the excellent Colours show on the 15th September 2018. Due to the amount of stock we are able to carry kindly contact us at [email protected] with any pre-orders. Looking forward to catching up with old customers and meeting new ones.
First things first – at Sunday I’ll be in Peterborough for the fourth edition of the Hereward show, catchily titled Hereward IV:A New Hope. I’ll have our latest releases and as much other stuff as I can carry, so that’s lots of Slammers, Yenpalo spaceships, British Nef etc. I’ll also have the full range of Crom’s Anvil figures which we carry at shows, including the new Heroes, Tribesmen and Simurgh Guards.
Back into production this week are this rather splendid collection of 15mm GEVs. The belong to the Flaming Sword of the Holy Brotherhood, a combined arms mercenary unit equipped with medium and heavy tank destroyers supported by infantry and heavy direct-fire mortars.
When they were previously available, the models used a common resin hull and separate metal or resin superstructures. We’ve modified the masters so that all of the versions now have unique one-piece resin hulls with just the turrets and guns to be attached. So the designs are the same, we’ve just made them much easier to assemble. While we were at it, we’ve remastered the all metal parts and made a new production mould for those. There’s also a new hull for the calliope carrier which was previously just stuck to the flatbed. So there are several good reasons why it’s taken a while to get them back into production!
The primary combat version is the GS-1199 Medium Tank Destroyer armed with a 9cm powergun. This is available with either a plain gun barrel or new one with a muzzle brake.
Infantry are carried in the GS-1107 APC with two small gun turrets carrying twin 2cm powerguns. The GS-1008 command version swaps a radar dish for the upper turret.
A fire support version can be equipped with an assortment of turrets – the FSHB’s main version is the GS-1141Rwith a pair of direct fire mortars, but other options include autocannon and a 5cm powergun turret.
The one new(ish) version is the GS-1018 Calliope vehicle with eight rapid fire 2cm powergun for air defence.
The Flaming Sword have a number of different detachments on their list, all of which are available as packs with vehicles, infantry, stowage, fireteam bases etc. This brings the number of pre-defined 15mm detachment packs to 31 now, giving you stacks of options for starting
