New Euro-Fed Spaceships Available From Brigade Models

ReleaseWave2

July 30, 2017

Brigade Models brought out the first wave of their resculpted EuroFed spaceships in time for Salute, but this only replaced a small part of the existing fleet. T

They have now re-released a pair of capital ships, new versions of the Liberté battleship and Cerbere light carrier. These two have changed in design more than some of the other new models, being based on a similar hull that has the same design styling as the Milano and Umberto. At the other end of the scale they also have the diminutive Comète starfighter, tiny but with an amazing amount of detail for something so small.

The release also includes a fleet pack containing a Liberté and a Cerbere along with escorts, fighters and bases.

SFS-400 – Liberté class Battleship – £6.00
SFS-411 – Cerbere class Light Carrier – £6.00
SFS-460 – Comète class Interceptor (pack of 12) – £1.50

SFSP-401 – EuroFed Fleet Pack #1 – £22.00

Brigade Models Release New Austro-Hungarian Aeroef

ViribusHabsburg

July 23, 2017

As the next stage in the gradual resculpting of the Aeronef range, Brigade Models have released five new capital ships for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Three of the models replace the existing battleship designs – the Erzherzog Ferdinand Max, Budapest and Szent István classes. All have new resin hulls with the customary collection of metal fittings – turrets, masts, funnels and tails.

The two new models are the Viribus Unitas dreadnought, which may be familiar to more venerable Aeronef gamers – long ago I wrote an article on our website about converting a Ferdinand Max model to the Viribus Unitas class by extending the hull and adding to the armament. This version of the Viribus is similarly an extended Ferdinand with an extra main turret. Finally, and largest of all, the Habsburg class utilises the semi-rigid dirigible hull of the Kaiserin class fighter carrier, but replaces the flight deck with a substantial mixed main battery, and the flank anti-fighter turrets are replaced by eight secondary gun turrets.

The three existing models are already in fleet packs, and we’ve created an extra fleet pack with a Habsburg and Viribus Unitas in, along with escorts. Although the older models are technically being retired, they’ll still be available to anyone who already has some and wants compatible models – just go to the page for the new versions and scroll down, then you’ll see a link allowing you to buy the old version.

VAN-704 – Erzherzog Ferdinand Max – £7.00
VAN-706 – Budapest – £6.00
VAN-708 – Szent István – £7.00
VAN-714 – Habsburg – £9.00
VAN-715 – Viribus Unitas – £7.50

VANFP-704 – Austro-Hungarian Fleet Pack #3 – £22.00

VANF-703 – Austrian Empire Flags – £0.50

Brigade Models release 6mm Combat Cars

Combat-Cars-e1499443117205

July 14, 2017

Brigade Models have released two new vehicles for their 6mm Mercenary Brigade force, bringing the small-scale range into line with their 15mm counterparts.

The first is the Mantra Cavalry Vehicle. Based on the drive train of the Shaman tank, this is an open-topped fast recce vehicle which dispenses huge amounts of firepower from the three crew-served gatlings in the rear compartment. The gunners are protected from shrapnel by an overhead splinter screen. The Shinigami is the Mantra’s predecessor, essentially an extended jeep with two gatlings in the unprotected rear deck.

Both models are metal castings with separate guns. The Mantra’s splinter screen is an etched-brass piece – it just needs to be cut out of its frame and the legs bent downwards 90°, which then pop into position on the chassis with a drop of superglue. Both models are available individually or in a Recce Troop pack containing six of each model along with a pair of Wizard jeeps.

SF300-1506 – Mantra Cavalry Vehicle – £1.00
SF300-1510 – Shinigami Combat Car – £0.60
IC-1516 – Mercenary Scout Troop – £9.50

Brigade Models Release New Spanish Small Scale Scenery

SpanishRelease-e1496928345867

June 16, 2017

Brigade Models have several new items in their Small Scale Scenery (1/1000th scale) range, all with a Hispanic flavour.

Brigade Models have released some new 17th and 18th century fortifications from the Mediterranean island of Menorca – the Castell de San Antonio on the northern coast (as it was built, rather than the pile of rubble it is now) plus a pack of three different defensive towers selected from the many that are dotted around the rocky Menorquin coast.

And then shifting continents, they have a pack of four small blockhouses such as were built by the Spanish on Cuba during the War of Independence in that country and the following Spanish-American War. They’re of a similar design to American Civil War blockhouses so would serve a dual purpose there too.

Finally, they have a small catholic church, based on a Cuban prototype, but which again would serve in other parts of the world such as northern Mediterranean countries or South America.

SSS-8081 – Castell de San Antonio – £3.00
SSS-8082 – Menorca Towers – £2.50
SSS-8083 – Cuban Church – £1.00
SSS-8084 – Spanish Blockhouses – £1.00

Brigade Models Release New EuroFed Spaceships

ReleaseWave1

May 28th, 2017

Brigade Models release their new European Federation spaceship models, replacing the old versions.

There are seven all-new digitally-sculpted ships along with two fighter types. Most of the models retain a similar outline to their predecessors, but are much changed in detail. The two largest vessels, the Milano and Umberto, have resin hulls while the rest are metal castings.

The remainder of the ships will be replaced with new versions in one or two further waves later this year, when we also hope to add one or two new classes as well. The other two fleet packs (401 and 403) will return when we have the ships to fill them again.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Kerberos has also been made available again. This model is a one-piece resin spacestation. In its basic form it is unarmed, but there are plenty of places to position turrets from one of our accessory packs (such as the new EuroFed triple turrets) should you wish to give it a defence capability.

YP6Release

May 7th, 2017

The first of Brigade Models’ Salute releases have started to arrive on their website for general sale.

In the past week they’ve added new Yenpalo infantry figures and the imposing new Xarledi grav tank in both 6mm and 15mm scales.

The 15mm Xarledi has a resin hull and turret with metal guns and details. It’s accompanied by two new packs of support weapons – railgun teams and automatic mortars.

The 6mm Xarledi is joined by a pack of Yenpalo infantry which are available for the first time in 6mm. They’ve been expertly scaled down by Martin Baker who sculpted the original 15mm versions. There is also a Yenpalo Combat Group pack with six tanks and 36 figures.

SF15-1164 – Railgun Teams (x2) – £3.00

Brigade Models Release New 6mm Hammers Slammers Vehicles

HS-11

March 22nd, 2017

Brigade Models have released more reinforcements for their 6mm Hammer’s Slammers forces.

There are uparmoured versions of the M2A4UA tank and M9A7 combat car, plus new artillery support on the form of the M53 20cm Artillery Hog.

The new tanks have extra armour plating pretty over the entire hull and turret, while the combat cars also have additional hull armour, plus extra plating that fits over the existing mesh splinter shield.

The M53 Hogs are enormous vehicles, as big as a blower tank and with a turret that wouldn’t look out of place on a naval destroyer ! The M53 can empty its six-round ready magazine in just 15 seconds and the ammunition options include nuclear, nerve agents and cluster rounds as well as the usual array of conventional munitions.

The models are all available singly, or we have new army and detachment packs that replicate the existing organisations but with the uparmoured vehicles instead. There’s also a new artillery pack with hogs, mortar jeeps and command and observer vehicles.

HS-1600u – Friesland Defence Force Army Pack – £25.00
HS-1601u – Uparmoured Tank Detachment – £11.00
HS-1602u – Uparmoured Combat Car Detachment – £11.00

HS-1611b – M2A4UA Uparmoured Blower Tank – £1.50
HS-1611c – M2A4FUA Uparmoured Command Tank – £1.50

Brigade Models Release New 2mm Railway Items

ShedsRelease

March 5th, 2017

Brigade Models is expanding on the railway options available in their Small Scale Scenery range, with two different engine sheds and some new track types.

One engine shed is a large (250 scale feet long) three-span rectangular shed, the second is a more distinctive circular one based on the Camden Roundhouse in London.

They also have a new pack of double track (12 pieces), allowing side-by-side running (which would have been difficult with our existing curved track) and finally for this week, a very useful set of assorted crossing track – single and double road crossings, X-crossings and left- and right-hand crossovers
