"Last week I received an advance-casting of the newest Frostgrave miniature, and it is, by far, the largest model in the range. It is hoped that a limited number of these will be available for purchase at Salute, before the model goes on regular release later in the year. I don't have any details on pricing yet. The miniature is cast in resin and came in about a dozen pieces, but thanks to the well thought-out design, all of the pieces fit together perfectly with no trouble at all. The model comes with a scenic base, but I prefer my minis on round bases."

Already available but too cool to not include here - More than 150 years have passed since the apocalypse that nearly destroyed the Earth. Today, the planet is a torn remnant of its former glory, ravaged by nuclear fallout and mutagens. New lifeforms - Mutants and Synthetics - challenge True Humanity for dominance, while warring factions compete for survival and supremacy, and all must carve out their place in this brutal landscape, or else perish as billions before them. Scrappers is skirmish miniatures game set in the wastelands, where players assemble Scrapper Crews and send them out to scavenge scraps of Ancient technology and battle rival factions. Explorers, cultists and raiders clash with mutated creatures, robotic soldiers and embittered True Humans in this wargame of salvage and survival in the ruins of the future.
Too Fat Lardies - Reisswitz Press - Link
As always, Salute promises to be the big event on the UK wargaming calendar and once again we will be present with lots of exciting stuff. Top of the agenda is the news that Reisswitz Press will be present with Dave Brown and is chums from Loughton Strike Force will be running a demo of Dave’s forthcoming Napoleonic rules, General d’Armee. You can catch up with Dave, the man rightly known as the Grand Master of Napoleonic Rules, at table GJ14 where, he tells me, his game will feature some gardening in Dresden (the clue’s in the question folks!). We’ll be releasing the rules at Partizan on the 21st of May, so this is a great opportunity to get a preview of what promises to be the big rules release of the year. To sharpen your appetite, here’s a view of the cover in all of its resplendent glory.

Emerging from the heat shimmer, they come in a roar of sound and fury, the nomad brigands and road pilots. Chrome, dust, and rust in your rearview mirror are the first harbingers of impending doom. Then the incessant chatter of twin Vickers fills your ears and your auto begins to disintegrate around you. It's the 'Dirty Thirties' and you're having a very bad day... Pray Maximillion is out here somewhere.
Hot off the press and imminently available for Salute pre-orders, comes the next wave of our Michael Moorcock Hawkmoon figures. This release sees the unleashing of the wolves and features the elite fighters of the Mad Empire. As you can see from these images Alan Marsh has done the subject proud with variously armed Wolf clan warriors and slaves in clan service. For those of you who have been howling for someone to bring the fight to the Kamargians, your clan awaits.
