Armies Army releases the Scots Guard, for real this time!


A somewhat embarrassing moment .......

I thought I’d had the Scots Guards on sale for the past month and I started to think nobody, and I mean nobody, liked them as I'd not sold a single one.

Then I'd realised I’d forgotten to put them on my shop for sale... It might be nobody wants them, however at least I've now a chance to sell them! :)

So...they are up on my shop at www.armiesarmy.com/shop





The troops are the Elite Light Infantry of the Commonwealth Forces and largely use the Regular armies kit. As light forces -later releases will provide light Anti-Tank Shoulder Launched weaponry, GPMG teams, Sniper team, mortar, portable grenade launchers and the HQ squad. The HQ squad will come with the famous piper :)


More great news!.......



These troops are officially approved for Hammers Slammers to !:) They will supplement my Commonwealth forces and provide troops for the following factions.
Hammers Slammers Forces
Hammers Slammers Stewarts Forces

I am very pleased to be included in the universe! :)

Look out for further announcements :) These troops will be getting some strike vehicles in the near future :)

GZG CHRISTMAS OFFERS NOW ON! (and New Weapon Team Releases!)

The highly anticipated GZG Christmas Offers are now available here: http://shop.groundzerogames.co.uk/


UPDATE - SUNDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 2014:

2014 CHRISTMAS FREE GIFTS and
2015 NEW YEAR DISCOUNT VOUCHERS:
RUNNING FROM 00.01 Hours on MONDAY 24th NOVEMBER to 24:00 (Midnight) on MONDAY 22nd DECEMBER 2014 - all by UK TIME.

Once again we are running our dual Christmas/New Year offer that has proved so popular for many years now - all qualifying* orders placed during the Christmas offer period will get TWO bonuses:

FIRSTLY a FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG from us, enclosed with your order, containing our choice of free extra items as a Christmas Gift to you - those of you who have had these in the past will know that we enclose a generous mix of items which are mostly relevant to the sort of things you've ordered, plus sometimes the occasional item or pack from one of our other ranges if we think you might like it.
The amount of stuff you get in your freebie bag depends on how large your order is - a small order will get a free pack or two, a large one will get a positively bulging bag of free extras!

SECONDLY, all qualifying* orders will get a DISCOUNT VOUCHER valid from the beginning of January to the end of February 2015 - so that you can use it to order even more cool stuff with the Christmas money that you get from all those relatives who don't know what to buy you....
If the subtotal value of your order (excluding VAT and postage/shipping) is £30 or over, but less than £100, then you will get a voucher worth 15% discount off your New Year order; if the value is £100 or over, then you will get a 20% discount voucher!

*IMPORTANT: To be a QUALIFYING ORDER to receive the Christmas/New Year specials, your order must show a SUBTOTAL of £30 (30 GBP) or over at the checkout stage. This subtotal is the goods value EXCLUDING any VAT or shipping/postal charges. We have to do it like this because of the different shipping rates to various worldwide destinations, and the fact that some customers (UK and EU) are charged VAT while those elsewhere are not. Using the subtotal excluding VAT and shipping means that everyone ordering the same actual amount of goods qualifies in the same way, which is the fairest way we can work it out!


A couple of IMPORTANT NOTES about the Christmas free gift items:

1) Please DO NOT ask for specific items in the free gift bag - the choice of what to include is OURS, though we will always endeavour to choose items that we think will be useful and/or interesting to you! If you knew exactly what you were getting it would spoil the surprise, wouldn't it?

2) Please note that SOME of the freebie items MAY include a novelty piece or two from our "over 18s" adult collectable ranges, if you specifically DON'T want this (eg: if buying for a youngster, or if you simply don't like that sort of thing) then please tell us in the order notes - we don't want to offend anyone!

CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR BREAK, and PRE-CHRISTMAS ORDERING:

The last day for placing orders with us before the Christmas break will be MONDAY 22nd DECEMBER; any orders placed after that date will most likely NOT be dispatched until we re-open for business on MONDAY 5th JANUARY 2015.

The webstore WILL remain open over the break, so orders may still be placed, but they will not be processed until after the 5th January. The New Year discount vouchers will become "live" on the 1st of January, and just before this I will be posting full details on the webstore front page of how to enter your code to redeem your voucher. Please DO NOT try to use your discount vouchers before the 1st Jan, as the store will not accept the codes.

While orders will still be packed and posted right up to (and possibly beyond) the 22nd Dec, please note that we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas, because that is in the hands of the postal services!
If you have a last-minute order which you simply MUST have by Christmas, please contact me (Jon) by email and I can see what is possible using Special Delivery or Courier services - but note that this may incur additional charges.

If at all possible, I would STRONGLY recommend that if you want your goods to have a good probability of arriving by Christmas, then UK orders are placed before Friday 19th December, European orders before Friday 12th December, US/Canadian orders before Friday 5th December and any others (Australia, NZ, Rest of World) by the end of November!

Khurasan releases Vespulid Maggots

Khurasan Miniatures opens the hatchery and lets loose the Vespulid Maggots...

Our popular Vespulid range of sentient aliens resembling space wasps has just been expanded with a set of Vespulid Maggots, horrible sharp toothed worms that ravenously eat any meat put before them so they can mature into adult form Vespulid Warriors. The maggots are in fact the main reason the warriors launch their assaults on enemy positions -- to gather meat for these horrid larvae. In turn, the byproduct of Maggot digestion is the foodstuff of the adult forms -- a perfect symbiosis.


Many an enemy life form has been shocked into unconsciousness by the Vespulids' ion weaponry, only to awaken deep in the hive to find itself surrounded by approaching ravenous maggots, slowly crawling over on their little chitinous legs as solidly muscular necks stretch out and fearsome teeth flash….

The models are about 16 or 17mm long and there are three body poses. The mouth opening plus teeth is a separate part, also in three variants, so these can be added to any body, giving more pose variety.

We think these would make excellent dungeon lurkers or other fantasy creatures as well.

Available now, at this link -- thanks for looking:

Brigade Models New Vehicle Releases! The Buffel, Hippo, Wildebeest and Small Cargo Container...

We have two new batches of releases from Brigade Models!

--

Last week we took our new 15mm South African vehicles to Crisis, and this week they're generally available from the website. The Buffel is a lighter, four-wheeled counterpart to the existing Wildebeest APC. It comes with a choice of top hatch with MG, light twin MG turret or triple light missile mount (the same turrets as the Wildebeest’s forward mount).

The Hippo on the other hand is a six-wheeled flatbed load carrier capable of hauling very heavy loads across rough terrain.

SF15-603 – Buffel Light APC – £8.00
SF15-608 – Hippo Heavy Truck – £8.50






Following up from last week's South African release, we have new turret options for the two APC types released today. We have a support turret with a low velocity infantry gun that fires heavy HE or squash-head shells for clearing out enemy strongpoints. To keep the skies clear, there's an AA turret with a single rapid-fire autocannon coupled with two twin Boomslang light AA missile launchers. The turrets fit both the Buffel and Wildebeest and all four versions are available from our website now.

As well as these four new vehicle options, we also have a new, half-sized version of our cargo container available.

SF15-603c - Buffel Support - £8.25
SF15-603d - Buffel AA - £8.25
SF15-607a - Wildebeest Support - £8.75
SF15-607c - Wildebeest AA - £8.75
SF15-915 - Small Cargo Container - £1.75
