Assault landings....Royal Commonwealth Marines......indeedy

Every Marine needs a good Beach Landing Assault vehicle and here is mine. The light assault hovercraft will come in different varieties due to its modular nature, with both a fully enclosed cabin and a open crewed cabin. Further examples will carry heavier weapon loads, APC's , Power Armor Troops and specialized commando raiders .

Nick Kondratov has done a great job of taking my design and modelling it, all whilst starting his new degree (best of luck Nick:))

I have a bunch of releases to get out of the way over the next month and then Ill have bunch of new items off to printing and casting.

thanks

Plenty of options to follow - ADV, Heavy APC, Engineer, Support, Drone Carrier, Mortar all thanks to the Buzzard Design Bureaus modular design brilliance!

New Wargaming Site: The Wargames Site!

 
 
 
Brought to you by the same folks of Angel Barracks, It's a great place for discussion and news.  I've found everyone there to be very helpful and its totally about Wargames!  It also seems to be growing leaps-and-bounds every day!
 
 
 
Shawn Carpenter from Ambush Alley Games has a great blog post about it too and has this nice quote:
"The Wargames Website is a new forum, but it's received quite a bit of backing from various game companies, including Ambush Alley Games. The crowd that's gathered there so far seems to be very friendly and knowledgeable about miniature gaming. I highly recommend checking the place out - it's a nice place and well deserving of our support!"


I fully support the views and Ive already started using it as my first port of call :) Its certainly growing, news is being regularly  submitted by a growing list of sponsors (including me) so its certainly worth a look. Membership costs are really low and if you are a member, lots of discounts are being offered by sponsors!. 10% off from me :)

The more that use it, the more of a home it becomes :)

Check it out!

ArmiesArmy -Reinforcements coming soon!


Hello everybody :)

Before the update, Id like to thank all the people whom have supported me with the opening of my webstore. Thankfully everything has gone smoothly, yet Ive still some things that need look at and I'm always keen on improving. If you do have any ideas, don't hesitate to drop me an email or post a comment.

Anyhow to the update....

I really hoped that I would have had more items out for sale by now, however the web store was busier then I believed and I basically was learning the ropes. Then the dreaded 'work' word got in the way and is still doing so! This will be around for at least another three weeks, however Ill then be back to normal hours, which will give me time to start releasing my new stuff. I'm hesitant to put dates, due to changes, however I can put up a priority order as to what will be released :)

So here it is


Penal Troops ~(Shipping tonight)




BTR160  and variants (Two weeks time)








Rusk IMV Gaz Cartographa  (around 3 weeks)


Russian Empire Forces  (around 4 weeks)

The Russian Empire remains at civil war with the breakaway colonies of the RUSK forces. They  share many similarities to the RUSK forces, however have more advanced weaponry and vehicles compared to the rugged and dependable items designed of that built by the Buzzard Design Bureau.
They are fewer in number and lack the winning attitude of the RUSK'S  (so say the RUSK's) forces.


More news to follow , however here is a snifter of old


Enemy Unknown - Reinforcements  (around 4 weeks)

The 'Enemy Unknown'  increase in encounters are causing a rising tension with the World's Empires and Forces. Frequency of an encounter is increasing as is the number of Enemy forces. Unconfirmed rumors suggest several battles are taking place with heavier and heavier armaments involved. The Enemy Unknown are no longer scouting. They look like they are here to stay!

With that in mind, I will be releasing the next lines of EU figures. Ill have a HQ and heavier support weapons in two forms. Ill also have an assault squad with pistol and shield and couple of unusual beasts.

BTR 290 Variants  (around 6 weeks)

The BTR 290 used by several world's forces will be getting some additional support. The BTR 290 'Shilka' AAA and the BTR290 'Tunguska' AT . Other variants will follow.


Xiangyu WZ993 APC ( around 6-8 weeks)

The PLA Xiangyu APC has had several field issues, resulting in the withdrawal from the front lines. A redesign with additional hatches, turret variants, PLA infantry support drones . The redesign is almost complete and will be sent for mastering in the next two weeks. Several designers have been sent to the Penal Battalions to work off their crimes.


Unconfirmed rumors also suggest that several other projects are coming to fruition, however with a few unexpected items jumping the queue as my minions churn out the masters etc ( minions being me...)

So...lots to come, lots being planned, lots being designed, including brand new items and some forces are getting reinforcements to complete the line :)


Ill keep the usual places updated!

thanks

ArmiesArmy is very pleased to announce a 10% savings for pre-orders of its new Penal Force

ArmiesArmy is very pleased to announce a 10% savings for pre-orders of its new Penal Force




Penal battalion service in infantry roles was the most common use of Prisoners whether they were political prisoners, convicts, P.O.W’s or troops who had failed in previous duties and were viewed by many prisoners as tantamount to a death sentence.
Prisoners sentenced to infantry units were eligible for commutation of sentence and assignment to an Army line unit if they survived their sentence or had accomplished extremely heroic deeds in combat. They could also theoretically receive military decorations for outstanding service and if released were considered fully rehabilitated, though those suspected of political disloyalties remained marked men.
In reality, the promise of rehabilitation was (in most cases) pure propaganda; penal battalions were administered and commanded by the field unit HQ’s, who treated Penal Troops as a worthless subspecies of soldier, useful only for absorbing heavy casualties that would otherwise be inflicted on a more worthy unit.
The penal troopers thus faced little prospect of escape, ensured by the use of explosive neck devices, activated with zero hesitation if so much as the slightest hesitation was shown!
The R.U.S.K and PLA forces both regularly use Penal Forces. With limited firepower and no body armour these troops are also nice for converting to several other troop types.
To launch the new troops, I’ll be offering a preorder special of 10% off all Penal Troopers.  The offer will close in 2 weeks’ time and Items posted within the month.  
Ill also be offering new Army pack special of 6 packs of Penal troops and one pack of either Rusk HQ troops or Sino/PLA  HQ. 


Codes are
AA401 pack – 5 unique Penal troops  
AA420 pack – 6 packs of Penal troops and 1 Rusk HQ troop
AA421 pack – 6 packs of Penal troops and 1 Sino/PLA HQ troop


We have plans to extend the range as well, and are always happy to hear your suggestions!


All packs can be found on  my shop

Hammers slammers forces



John T from hammers slammers fame has kindly included my troops as some of his merc forces and the latest being discussed is the Stewart Regiment. As it happens I've some never released commonwealth forces Scots guards which fit rather well. They wear the glengarry hat.

I painted one up quickly for John to check, thought I'd post it here :)






Other forces that have been used include the British forces as  Marvelan Confederacy Enforcement Corps (MCEC) 
and my PLA forces as  Hiroseki National Army :) Follow the links to see them and have a look at the entire Hammers Site. It is  very, very good!
