Victrix: Plastic British Peninsula Dragoons in Bicorn Preview


Victrix: Here are the renders for the British Peninsula dragoons in bicorn. This uniform was in use up to 1812 but probably carried on into 1813 due to sporadic supply issues with all armies during the Napoleonic wars (regulations and actual practice are very different even in today’s armies)

The differences in this uniform are the shoulder wings and horizontal bars of lace across the chest. They do not have the striped girdle under the sword belt and the cuffs are different. We have done two sets of arms for this set to represent the British regiments and the Kings German Legion (they have a pointed cuff with chevrons of lace above it)

We have also included two options for the sword scabbard buy itself or sword scabbard and sabretache. The sabretache was issued in 1812 to the heavy cavalry but again probably took a while to get to the troops, but is there for completeness. The officer has a choice of bicorn or cylindrical shako with cords.

Bloody Miniatures: Brand New 28mm English Civil War Character Range!


Bloody Miniatures: Bloody Miniatures new line of 28mm figures for the English Civil War, is a range conceived to bring a dash of added personality to existing ECW / TYW collections, or provide characterful figures for skirmish games.

Bloody Miniatures figures are the work of the brilliant Nick Collier, original sculptor of the enduringly popular Bicorne and Renegade ECW ranges. Those existing excellent ranges contain huge numbers of rank and file models in a variety of drill-type poses - perfect for recreating big battles set in that era, but perhaps slightly less well suited to the minor scrimmages, sieges, raids and sallies which typified warfare of the period. Bloody Miniatures complement these existing ranges perfectly, providing a seamless fit in size, style and stature, with extra helpings of charisma and period flavour. 

They're designed with the ECW in mind, but will serve equally well for the Thirty Years War. The figures are also eminently suitable for New World colonial conflicts like the Powhatan and Pequot Wars of the 1630s - 1640s, and for C17th 'folk horror' settings / rules like 'Witchfinder General'. The first four packs are available now at www.bloodyminiatures.co.uk. The next four packs are already in the pipeline, and more will follow.

Their ability to rapidly move and reposition to strike before swooping off again allows them to harass the enemy, disrupting their attacks and leaving cold corpses in their wake. This box contains ten Eagle Warriors armed with bows, the default weapon for the unit in Mythic Americas. Check the pre-order here


Pen and Sword: Painting Wargaming Figures – Rome's Northern Enemies Book


Pen and Sword: Throughout their history, the Romans were troubled by formidable warlike tribes along their northern borders. The Celts of Gaul and Northern Italy, who sacked Rome itself, the British who repulsed Julius Caesar and resisted later occupation, the Germanic tribes along the Rhine and the fearsome falx-wielding Dacians on the Danube, all proved worthy foes of the legions. If you are raising your own army to defy the might of Rome, Andy Singleton will help you get them ready for battle with ease.

The emphasis is on achievable results and practical advice to get your army painted and ready for gaming in a reasonable time frame, and achieve a fine collection that will look great on the shelf or table. Most of the figures featured in the numerous illustrations are 28mm but the techniques described are easily adaptable to smaller scales and to plastic or metal. Step-by-step guidance takes the process from initial preparation and assembly of the figure, to finishing and basing. Themed chapters cover armour, clothing, skin tones, warpaint and tattoos, shields and horses. Now available at Pen and Sword Books here

AvanPost Miniatures: New Thirty Years' War Cuirassiers


AvanPost Miniatures released these new resin historical miniatures.


Goblin Gaming: Get Up to 20% Discount off Dropfleet Commander Pre Orders


Goblin Gaming: The Resistances' Monitor class ships are closer to space stations in terms of their use and what they are capable of bringing to the fight: The Newton is armed with a laser that can bombard ground targets, or turn enemy ship hulls to vapour with the particle special rule. While it is slow even by Monitor standards; the Newton is more dangerous than it's tonnage might suggest, thanks to the laser's good lock and high damage. Check the pre-order here

The Galileo is a support ship through & through. While it lacks weapons: it's active scan causes a major signature spike instead of just a minor one (or cancelling an enemy ship's Silent Running order, while giving it a minor spike for good measure). It even makes it easier for other ships to land critical hits! Ouch! Due to the low speed and painful stings that a pair of Newton can inflict; they will find the Galileo a valuable 3rd companion in a battlegroup. For keeping aggressively positioned cruisers and ground landers at bay, or reliably checking a frigate each turn. Estimated release date: 9th April 2021, subject to change by the manufacturer.
