Have you seen my Team Yankee Yanks?
Battlefront are re-packing the USA Team Yankee box set. We’ve still some of the original sets left.
I love our North Star 1672 range of figures. They are for the French Dutch War 1672-1678. There’s very little in English about this war, you’ve got to read widely to really understand it. There’s little information on the uniforms, little information on flags, not much about the battles, it’s like being a 1970’s wargamer! But it’s colourful, it’s Pike & Shot (right at the very end of that period) and the terrain is fantastic, the world is still medieval but the architecture is entering a new period. Do what I did, sell your ECW armies and reinvest in this period.
Open Combat author Carl Brown will be running games tomorrow at Partizan in Newark. He’ll be running his new gunpowder supplement using our 1672 figures (my fav range).
We have some of the 1/72nd WW2 Valiant Miniatures in the Bargain Basement at the moment.
Looking forward to seeing these painted by some of the amazing artists out there! #3dprinting #digitalmodel #busts #warmongers #jekyll #hyde

For those wanting a closer look at some Star Saga minis Ronnie has been… ‘posing’ with them at #GenCon50
If you haven’t ordered one of the extra dragon heads yet, you should really consider doing so.
You can fit a whole halfling in its mouth and it would look great on a tavern’s wall, in a dungeon entrance, as a trophy etc.
Shown here with HERESY’s Buttercup The Destroyer, Halfing Sorceress, a WARLORD GAMES Centurion and a PERRY knight for scale!
Copplestone Gangsters from GN10 – Tommy Gunners and GN1 – Frankie’s Fingermen.
Don’t forget, the Seven Years War was fought in North America as well, ‘Last of the Mohicans’ and all that. The Crusader range includes a nice selection of Woodland Indians. The British and French Regulars can also be deployed in N. America, but we don’t do Irregulars.
THE SEVEN YEARS WAR MINIATURES SALE HAS BEGUN.
Ends last day of August.
While Bryan toils away here at Gen Con, the hard-working warehouse crew was busy making sure that everyone is going to get something this weekend. The August releases for Dark Age are now available!
It’s quite an important release this month, as we’ve got the new Skarrd book for you.
This new tome of Dark Age lore and rules puts a new face on the mutant cannibals and introduces a powerful new threat from within their ranks – the undying worshippers of atomic fallout, the Cult of Decay! Bringing new rules for one of Dark Age’s oldest sets of monsters as well as revealing many new units, Dark Age: Skarrd is a must have for Skarrd players and Dark Age fans
We also have a new Skarrd Faction Starter.
From the early days after the Abandonment, when the they fled from the ruins of Port City to become the tribes of the Baniss, to the appearance of the Heretic Saint and the creation of the Skarrd, the denizens of the Northern Wastes
have had to become brutal killers to survive. There is no room for the weak, there are no resources to be spared on the sick or elderly. In Skarrd society, you take what you need to survive and you follow the commands of your Tribal Father.
Up next is the Fell Unit Box.
Much like the members of the Skarrd tribes, the fell jackals of Samaria are skilled scavengers who use pack tactics to bring down their enemies. It is little wonder, therefore, that the beasts are now ubiquitous around the fringes any Skarrd camp. They can be used as hunting dogs, or guided into battle by the violent Scourge taskmasters. Whichever way the Fell Packs are used, you can bet that no tears will be shed over their fate.
And then Raze gets a new box set.
No one can remember where Raze came from, and the silent Raze does not care to illuminate anyone. There is much speculation on his origin – from suggestions he is a cyborg to rumors he was created before the Fall – but none of it really matters. All that matters is that Raze goes where he pleases, and the enemies of Raze do not last long. This stoic and constant presence has spawned a cult of admirers, fanatics who have modified their bodies to echo the shape of Raze himself.
Skarrd aren’t the only faction with something this month. Dragyri have a couple of releases, also.
The Dragyri culture runs heavily on the idea that the Trueborn warriors are devoted to glory and combat, leaving the menial tasks to a multitude of comparative diminutive Slaves. These scampering servants are brought to battle alongside the Trueborn, hurling themselves to the best of their ability at the enemy – sometimes with the crack of a Taskmaster’s whip at their backs!
And last, but not least, the new box for Air Caste Elementals.
Among the elements attuned to Trueborn Castes, Air exhibits the most variety in the way it can be channeled by a Soul Warden. In addition to the Greater Storm Elemental, the Soul Wardens can summon packs of Zephyrs, who rely on numbers
to assault their foes, or Squalls, who can deliver their destructive lightning strikes at range.
