Breaking! Perry Miniatures: New Plastic Hundred Years' War - Mounted Agincourt Knights 1415-29 Preview


Perry Miniatures: Mounted Agincourt Knights 1415-29 - These, designed by Alan, are next in line for plastic production. He’s only just started, so when more variants done we’ll show them. The bodies are split so you can introduce a bit of movement from the waist as the helmets of the period didn’t allow the head much side to side movement. There may be one or with bodies and legs attached to allow a looser coat, fashionable during the period, to be included. There will be some bodies with fixed left arms and others with separate ones.  The idea is to fit as many variations of the riders as possible on one frame. You will also be able to use arms from the present Agincourt box sets with these.

The intension is to do one large frame as per the WotRs mounted men at arms. Horse armour was tending to go out of fashion during this period as fighting on foot became more popular, so space on the frame will dictate if any is included (although something probably will). Likewise cloth barding was usually now only reserved for commanders, kings and tourneys. Again it would be nice to include it if there is enough space. The horses are Michaels’ WotRs horses. There was no need to remake these or make additional ones as the basic tack remained identical through most of the 15th century.  Alan plans on making a couple of additional horse heads with earlier chanfrons (as these were a little different) and shorter crinet on the neck. Obviously no release date on these as they’re only just started.

Artis Opus: Popular Series S: Brush Set Kickstarter - Quality Kolinsky Sable Brushes


Artis Opus: The finest brushes for passionate artists, hand crafted by artisans using true Kolinsky Sable. The brainchild of miniature painters and industry professionals, Artis Opus Series S Brushes are beautifully realised and presented, featuring ergonomics to improve every painter’s hobby experience. Series S use only the highest grade pure Kolinsky Sable, with a rigorously tested and adapted head, designed to hold a perfect point, while having enough body to carry more paint than shorter designs.  




Formed by experienced artists with an eye for ergonomic design, Artis Opus combines premium quality, durability and elegance. We use only the finest components in our products making us the natural choice for both aspirational and leading painters. The precision of our points should allow painters to use a larger brush than would normally be practical, greatly improving speed and resulting in a more enjoyable painting experience. Our larger handle is also designed to be both distinctive and practical. Users will easily adjust to the increased width, and then benefit from the comfort, avoiding ‘painter’s cramp’, and allowing to paint for longer.

Privateer Press: Warmachine Khador Man-O-War Assault/Siege Chariot


Privateer Press: The iron wheels and steel-shod hooves of Man-O-War chariots pulverize the enemies of Khador while the armored charioteer brings devastation to the battlefield with heavy artillery. 

Combining the speed of Khador’s toughest breed of warhorses, the Karpathan destrier, with the nigh-impenetrable steam-armor of the Man-O-War, these chariots punch holes in the enemy line, allowing the armies of Khador to march along the bloody paths they create. Whether armed with the armor-cracking heavy gun or the anti-infantry barrage gun, even a single Man-O-War chariot can turn the tide of a desperate battle in the favor of the Motherland. The thunder of its hooves and the roar of its cannons presage victory in the name of the Empire.

Pen and Sword Books: One-Hour Skirmish Wargames - Fast-Play Dice-Less Rules for Small-Unit Actions from Napoleonics to Sci-Fi


Pen and Sword Books announced that they will be releasing their new One-Hour Skirmish Wargames book in September 2018. The book will be written by Author Dr John Lambshead and will retail for £12.99.

Many wargamers enjoy the challenge of skirmish games where, instead of the strategy of vast armies portrayed by traditional wargames, the focus is on the tactics of a small unit. However, skirmish rules are often so complex that it can take hours of rolling dice, consulting tables and recording data to recreate what would in reality be a fast and furious fight lasting just minutes. Now these new rules make it possible to recapture the speed and intensity of these actions where every man, and every second, counts. 


The basic rules are supported by sections which give special rules and scenarios to capture the favour of a range of different periods, from Napoleonic to Modern Warfare and beyond with Sci-Fi. From the 95th Rifles, scouting for Wellington, Western gunfights and WWI trench raids, through WW2 parachute assaults or Special Forces strikes in Afghanistan, or even Space Marines storming a space station, Squad Firefights elegantly simple system allows you to focus on proper tactical decisions rather than rolling buckets of dice or calculating masses of modifiers.

Pen and Sword Books: Wargames Terrain and Buildings - The Napoleonic Wars Book Announcement


Pen and Sword Books announced that they are working on a new wargame book series named Wargames Terrain and Buildings, the first book of the series will cover scenery for the Napoleonic Wars!

Any miniature wargame is greatly enhanced by realistic and evocative scenery and buildings, but commercial ready-made pieces can be expensive. Building your own can be a cost-effective and very rewarding alternative, another hobby in itself, but it can be hard to know where to start. Wargames Terrain and Buildings is a series of books aimed at giving wargamers the skills, techniques and guidance they need to create their own stunning and practical model buildings.


In this volume, master modeller Tony Harwood shares his years of experience and presents the reader with a wide range of projects for the Napoleonic era.  The projects included are: Russian Windmill, French Farmhouse, La Belle Alliance, French Dovecot, Stone well, Russian Granary, German Bakery, Hungarian Chapel and Peninsular Diorama. With the aid of step-by-step photographs, he guides the reader through building and finishing each of these models, which are organized in three sections of increasing complexity and encompass a range of scales and different materials. Nine projects are included but the techniques and skills demonstrated along the way, along with valuable advice on tools, construction materials and paints, can be adapted and applied to a much wider range of structures to grace your battlefields. The book is scheduled to be released in September for £14.99.

ResInAere: Gravetides - An Undead Fleet For Naval Fantasy Wargaming Kickstarter


ResInAere: We've finally had the time to work on the two flying monsters with appreciable results, and both the Revenant and the DracoMort are gradually getting their final form.

Looking at the evolution on the sculpting this models and the progress of the campaign, we’ve also decided to unlock the two flying monsters add-ons, first as an acknowledgment to our backers, and because we’re far from reaching our optimistic unlock goals. We’re confident to have them ready to be shipped with the rest of the fleet in the timeframe set for the project. Feel free to add them to your pledges! Again, the campaign is his very last days and very very near to its final goal, help us making it! Check the Kickstarter here




Heroic Maps: New Bolt Action Bocage Scenery Mat Release


Heroic Maps: Having picked up a copy of Bolt Action from Warlord Games, we thought we'd expand our range a little and start to offer 6'x4' terrain maps that were suitable for Wargames. You can easily get the image printed on PVC/Cloth/Mousemat at a printing company of your choice. As it's intended for Wargames there's no VTT version, A4 pdf or gridded version, but it is a super detailed map and will look fantastic with some terrain and soldiers on it. We decided to start with  a classic - the Normandy Bocage.  You can pick it up here
