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.

SKOV insurgents available ....oh and they are on my new look webshop :)

The threat of the ‘Great Purge’ has gone. The last of the Enemy Unknown fighters have been exterminated by the combined National forces of the Old and New Worlds but not without cost. In a final attempt to rid the worlds of the Humans large Bio bombs and ECM weapons were deployed causing destruction on a scale never seen before and hopefully never been seen again. The old world was utterly destroyed of life and only the nations whom had explored had any hope of survival.

Many saw it as an opportunity to rebuild their nations and live a peaceful existence. They were wrong…Nations grew and typical neighbour quarrels grew into National Wars and more!
One such Nation grew. It followed the old ways of old and became the Russian Federation in name.
The Russian Federation excel at insurgency warfare. They are slowly but surely growing its territories. Insurgency tactics are prevalent in the Federation.  These Insurgents / militiamen are well armed and well trained and have become known as SKOV forces. Named after a Soviet campaign on the settlement of Kalingrad the SKOV forces are lightly armoured and armed with the latest generation AK’s, RPGS and RPK LMG’s.
For support they count on the Russian Federation ‘Guard’ Forces whom can provide support through APC’s, MBTS and VTOLS from the Armoured Corps of the Federation.

The Skov Forces that are Available immediately are-

Insurgents Squad
Command Squad
HMG Squad
All Infantry Pack
Light Machine Gun Pack
Rocket Propelled Grenade Pack
And finally a Platoon Pack! The platoon pack contains 34 troops, enough for 6 fire teams, HMG team and two commanders.
These will be quickly followed by heavier weapons, tank riders and finally the Guards Troops. The government forces ‘Guards’ are more conventional  forces with heavier armour and exo assisted suits.

They will all be available at my new website
