Khurasan Releases Later 14th Century 15mm Sets

August 8, 2017

Khurasan are very pleased to release six new codes for their 15mm later 14th century range, the first sets of men-at-arms on foot, and more sets of infantry.

As most men-at-arms fought on foot in this period rather than mounted, these releases permit the gamer to build the basic components of armies of the period — either an English herce (longbows flanking men at arms) or the French men at arms formations with crossbows supporting at a distance. In addition to the men-at-arms (these first sets are in jupons), they also have pavisiers, crossbowmen, and armed peasants. (Please note these are the larger “15mm” figures pioneered by Testudo which are now the size offered by several manufacturers.)

Available now.

Warlord Games Release New Models for Two Theatres of WW2 Bolt Action Miniatures

405106003-Type-91-So-Mo-armoured-car-road-01

July 31, 2017

Warlord Games is releasing something from two different major theaters of WWII in the newest Bolt Action releases.

For the Pacific theatre, there’s the Type 91 So-Mo Armoured Car, which has parts to make it run on both roads as well as railroads. In the European theatre there are several bundles for Warlord Games’ Operation Sea Lion and Operation Gigant supplements.

Taking over the Pacific is the Imperial Japanese forces, armed with the new Type 91 So-Mo Armoured Car.

Also referred to as the Type 91 broad-gauge railroad tractor, the So-Mo has the unusual distinction of being able to quickly switch from road to rail. The So-Mo and its six crew could achieve speeds of around 25 miles per hour on roads and almost twice that on railroads.

On the eve of the German invasion, the British and German forces finalise their preparations.

Tasked with defending Britain with everything it’s got, the BEF uses the LDV and their ingenuity to help stave off the German onslaught.

July 7, 2017

Khurasan are very pleased to release our latest 15mm Soviet/Russian vehicle of the Cold War to Modern period, the BMP-1P.

After its trial by fire in the Yom Kippur War, the BMP-1 was found to have room for improvement, and one key issue was the mounting of the ATGM launcher above the main cannon. This was remedied on the BMP-1P, which has a pintle mounted ATGM launching tube. Thousands of these remain in service around the world today

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
