A call to arms my cold war'ers..... (if thats a word)

Looking for help!

As I've advertised here myself and Ram Company Games are looking at creating some scenario packs amongst other things. Would any of you be interested in helping us out? :) We would like play testers to run through some scenarios with rules suggestions (you can use any of your favourite set), sanity check info and have input into future areas. A sort of military historical SME :)

We pay in PDF for all people involved! Ill also offer %off deals for any forces I create from them :)
Drop me a message for more details and interest :)

VTOL Update

Another apology everyone....

I'm delayed slightly again ! The resin casts had a sticky feel to them and the caster was not happy.He ditched them and is working double shifts over the weekend to get them to me Monday/Tuesday. They will be packed and shipped soon as  they arrive.

Again apologies. Expect some figures in each pack as apologies! I hope that eases the pain:)  The resin caster is a top guy and every know and again a bad batch throws his schedule!

ArmiesArmy 15mm Tank/APC riders are available at the shop :)

Vehicle riders

One thing that I always think when I am looking  at photos of Russian BTR’s, BMP’s and BMD’s with troops sat on the outside of them( in particular insurgent/militia types) …is ‘wow that’s cool’ and I then think how nice that will look on the varying vehicles of my sci fi range. So…that’s exactly what I did.

This figure pack contains 6 figures and three different poses. They are ideal for insurgents/militia. They are all in the seated position and are available at £3.00 for the 6 figures at

The Tank crew riders will be available in the near future.

ArmiesArmy 15mm BTR 260 is ready for order!

The BTR-260 is a six wheeled, lightly armoured vehicle, currently under trials by the Russian Federation’s Army, Marine Forces, and VDV (both conventional and orbital drop). Built specifically for quick response vehicle or reconnaissance the vehicle is a shorter wheel based version of the BTR 290.

The BTR-260 has six wheels, and is propelled by third generation hydrogen fuel cells.  The passenger compartment is located to the rear, with seating available around the base of the turret.  Forward of the turret is the crew compartment, main drive system, and communications systems.  Passenger capacity is 4 in the troop bay accessed through large aft door.  Crew is three, driver, gunner, and a commander who also leads the infantry section carried in the IFV model BTR-260. The gunner controls the vehicle as the commander supports the troop section.  The initial variant of the BTR 260 mounts a turret equipped with 27MM autocannon and “Punisher” 10 MM Gatling weapon.  Carries 350 rounds of 27MM, and 12,000 10 MM rounds.  Conceptually the 27MM is loaded with armor piercing rounds, while the 10 MM is reserved for anti-infantry use.  Lacks dedicated anti-tank system, however 27 MM is significant threat to most light armoured vehicles.  10 MM is capable of very high RPM and well regarded as reliable and accurate.  Turret also mounts active countermeasures system, capable of firing smoke, or “Hornet” anti-missile munitions.

The BTR 260 A is now on sale at
The resin and metal vehicle will be £6.50 with a limited time offer of £6.00 for the first few weeks.

Thanks to  Paul​ for providing some of this excellent background. This will be available in the near future in full for several of my vehicles :) This will include some force OOB's for generic rules

Pegasus VTOL Pre order Update

Hello from armiesarmy HQ!

Just a quick update on the orders. Sadly it looks like the orders will have a slight delay. Rather then shipping out this week, its likely to be a few days later and into next week. The resin mould was just not quite right and the mould maker was not 100% happy with it. The fuselage had some slight bubbles in it an him and me were not happy with it. The good news is that a new one was finished yesterday and production can start again.

I will keep you all updated this week

Pegasus 'VTOL' updates


Couple of things...first the big one

£1 off the price of the VTOL.....why????? I hear the screaming! Well simply put they cost me less. As I am metal casting the engines in one part ( they look lovely) my costs  (I cast them) have been lessoned. By a pound in that's what I'm reducing it by.

All current presales  (around 30) have had their quids refunded already :) the second item

Here are some size comparison pictures with some SKOV infantry (normally you expect these to be shooting it down...or trying to)

Enjoy the new costings :) Preorders are still available at my webstore

Mini Campaign - Part 1 Uprising

Right, finally getting about to running my mini campaign using the fantastic No Stars in Sight Rules by Nordic Weasel .

The campaign is set just after the great purge and all surviving worlds are a little at disarray.. Not surprising as most worlds were wiped out!

Anyone in the Kirov system local insurgent forces are uprising. The SKOV forces have recently raided a small garrison arming themselves with a VPP1 MBT. Limited in tech yet surprisingly powerful given a lack of armour on the planet. How the SKOV have been able to drive it is anybody's guess. Some suspect other forces are involved....

The campaign will consist of small platoon led actions with minimal armour (until I paint more) and will use my new insurgent forces and some of brigades British Forces to represent the Government forces.

Fighting beings tomorrow this weekend....I hope

VTOL Preoders are open!

V-212 Pegasus VTOL  Preorders

The Bell Boeing V-212 Pegasus is a United Nations multi-mission, tilt rotor military aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short take-off and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The V-212 originated from the United Nations Weapons Research laboratories which escaped damage during the ‘Great Purge’ due to its hidden location in the Eden Section.  For takeoff and landing, it typically operates as a helicopter with the nacelles vertical and rotors horizontal. Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90° in as little as 6 seconds for horizontal flight, converting the V-212 to a more fuel-efficient, high speed turboprop aircraft. STOL rolling-takeoff and landing capability is achieved by having the nacelles tilted forward up to 45°.Other orientations are possible, such as the "80 Jump" take-off which uses nacelles at 80° to quickly achieve high altitude and speed.

Composite materials make up 95% of the airframe, and prop rotor blades.  Most missions use fixed wing flight 75% or more of the time, reducing wear and tear and operational costs.
The V-212 can carry a squad of 8 – 10 troops and its two pilots. For flak and infantry suppression the Pegasus is armed with dual 20mm Gatling cannon, controlled by the co-pilot and 6 multi-purpose missile systems, 3 on each wing. Dedicated spec ops  and Gunship versions are also under research at the UMWRL.  A Quad aircraft is also under evaluation

The V-212 Pegasus VTOL is ready for preorders at a special price of £12.99 (RRP is £13.99) or a pack of three for £37.50. Preorders will be open for three weeks and delivery will begin one week after if not sooner.  Resin and metal casting are currently in progress.

The Pegasus comes in several parts.  Two tilt rotors, one hull, one tail and then two sets of undercarriage to represent them raised or lowered two Gatling Cannon and two rocket systems.
