Brigade Models Release More British Aeronef

VAN-101

Feb 13, 2018

The Grand Fleet arrives! Brigade Models releases more British Aeronef models to their lineup!

Following on from the arrival of the new Victoria and Albert class battleships, the rest of the British capital ships get a similar makeover this week. The Agincourt and Benbow battleships plus the Audacious and Britannia battlecruisers have all been replaced by new resin-hulled models with separate turrets and metal parts. The new designs are similar in layout to the originals, but the multiple separate parts make for much improved miniatures.

We’ve revamped the existing British fleet packs with the new models, including the British Grand Fleet pack. The two new turret types are also available in separate accessory packs.

VAN-101 – Benbow class Battleship – £8.00
VAN-109 – Agincourt class Battleship – £8.00
VAN-111 – Britannia class Battlecruiser – £7.00
VAN-114 – Audacious class Battlecruiser – £7.00

VAN-7016 – British Battleship Turrets (x10) – £1.50
VAN-7017 – British Battlecruiser Turrets (x10) – £1.50

New Harbour Models available from Brigade Models

SSS-8104-e1517494057974

Feb 8, 2018

Two new Small Scale Scenery items have arrived on the Brigade Models website allowing you to make a more extensive harbour layout.

The first is a pack of four resin Jetties, two plain and two with buildings moulded on. The pieces are 5mm thick and have detailing all the way round so that they can be used as jetties or piers projecting from land or as stand-alone islands.

The second item is aimed at scratchbuilders and is a set of metal harbour front pieces that match the detailing and height around the edge of the jetties. The height of 5mm means that you can use standard thickness foam card to make the body of the dock and then edge it with the metal harbour front pieces.

SSS-8104 – Jetties (x4) – £8.00
SSS-8105 – Harbour Fronts – £4.00

Newest 15mm Terrain Releases Available from Brigade Models

SSS-8002

Oct 20, 2017

In the Brigade Models Small Scale (15mm) Scenery range, they have updated and re-released their sound mirror models, replacing the old ones with slightly tweaked new versions and adding two new types of smaller acoustic mirror. These now come six to a pack, two each of three designs.

And in the City Blocks series, they have added two new designs. The first is a set of four inner curves that can replace the existing corner pieces, or when used together will make up a circular plaza. And finally, two end terrace blocks which can be used to terminate a row of city blocks.

Brigade Models Release Neo-Soviet Armoured Infantry Carrier in 6mm

SF300-1214-e1505917121864

Sept 25, 2017

Brigade Models Neo-Soviet ground forces have recently been receiving all sorts of upgrades, with new types of tank and assault gun in both 6mm and 15mm scales.

The one thing they needed to support these new vehicles was an armoured infantry carrier capable of keeping up with the tanks. Well, today that arrives in the form of the new BMP-BM.

This vehicle is based on the chassis of the Bars tank, with a new superstructure capable of carrying six fully-equipped Guards riflemen. The rear-engined design precludes doors at the back of the vehicle, so access is via a two-piece hatch at the front next to the driver’s station.

The release also includes a Guards Infantry Company with eight BMP-BM, a Lisa command vehicle and 48 infantry. There is also a new Guards Army Pack with 12 Bars tanks, 4 Terminators, 8 BMP-BM, command vehicles and infantry.

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
