Scots Guards (Stewart Regiment Hammers Slammers) Launch



A somewhat embarrassing moment .......

I thought id had the Scots Guards on sale for the past month and I started to think nobody and I mean nobody liked them as Id not sold a single one

Then Id realised Id forgotten to put them on my shop for sale...........It might be nobody wants them, however at least I've now a chance to sell them! :)

So...they are up on my shop at www.armiesarmy.com/shop





The troops are the Elite Light Infantry of the Commonwealth Forces and largely use the Regular armies kit. As light forces -later releases will provide light Anti Tank Shoulder Launched weaponry, GPMG teams, Sniper team, mortar, portable grenade launchers and the HQ squad. The HQ squad will come with the famous piper :)


More great news!.......


These troops are officially approved for Hammers Slammers to !:) They will supplement my Commonwealth forces and provide troops for the following factions.
Hammers Slammers Forces
Hammers Slammers Stewarts Forces

I am very pleased to be included in the universe! :)

Look out for further announcements :) These troops will be getting some strike vehicles in the near future :)

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

I bring to you the popular and venerable BTR 160 made popular by the RUSK and Imperial 'White' Russians forces, once described as the most exported Military Vehicle in the Galaxies!
First up is the APC and then the rather nasty Katayusha rocket system. Sadly they wont make it for blast tastic, however ready in 2 weeks time for orders!






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

More details to follow!

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

Keith
