An express elevator to hell;
My sincerest thanks to everyone who has supported Dropship Horizon to date, and especially to each of the manufacturers who has contributed towards the 100th post! A special thank you to Gavin at 15mm.co.uk for his very generous 15% discount deal for Dropship Horizon readers!

15mm.co.uk Grey Landing Party
Meet the all new Sabre Dropship coming soon from Rebel Minis:
We have 3 alien races planned and these will be complete ranges with various troop types and vehicles.
Finally, We're putting together a range of Space dwarves, with the first pack due for release mid June. These figures will be part of a complete range and we hope to launch with a platoon pack made up of 30 unique figures, which will incld command and heavy weapons.
And here are some further updates on the rest of my Sci Fi lines as posted also to TMP:
The Corporate Marines are in my hands just waiting for the painted samples to be
Garn 15mm are at the casters.
Pelagic Dominate:- Karkarine line troopers in ablative armour are almost done, soon to be
Hydrozoan Overlords, in battle dress with nematocyte energy harpoon, have been described to sculptor and will be started soon
Spearbearer bio terror troops are done and on their way to me.
Pelagic armoured assets (grav tank, grav APC, grav missile artillery) are completed 3D sculpting and the patterns are at the printers.
So lots of sci fi fun coming in the next few months. If sales support it I will make vehicles for the Garn and Corporate Marines as well. Also probably everyone's favorite genocidal overlord, Jellina Joel I, in 15mm."
