Khurasan Miniatures has released the BTR-3000 for the Nova Respublik faction.
This near-future wheeled beauty includes several weapon options... you can leave it disarmed, arm it with a single antipersonnel laser if you want a more traditional APC, or use the pictured laser/missile launcher combination for a heavier IFV. It's a great aesthetic match for the rest of the Nova Respublik vehicles - a good range for near-future games.

The selection of laser-cut terrain options continues to expand.
Spartan Games (Dystopian Wars, Firestorm Armada) has created the Invincible-class Planetary Gunship for 15mm and 28mm ground games.
It's an interesting concept - a large ship that can be used as terrain or an objective. Or if you're really crazy (or using a gym floor as a game table), you can use the attached flight stand to turn the Invincible into a game piece. Spartan Games is offering two versions - a fiberboard-only version for £50.00, or the deluxe version with additional resin details (pictured) for £70.00. I'm curious to see how many of these end up being used on 15mm battlefields given its size and price... but it's a good sign that Spartan Games may have some other interesting products for us in the future.

For a more conventional terrain item, Angry Badger is now offering a complete 15mm barricade kit.
For $40, you will get a laser-cut MDF set consisting of twenty 2" modular walls, one entrance wall, twenty straight walkways, four corners, four guard towers, two staircases, and a tank-sized entry gate. It's a pretty tempting set, if nothing else for how easy it would be to get it to the table. Spend a few hours sanding and gluing the parts, give it a coat of flat black spray paint, a quick drybrush or two of your favorite military color, and it would ready to use.
It's quite reminiscent of a bug-defending compound from a certain iconic movie, and I can easily imagine building small settlements inside these walls for post-apocalyptic games. It will be worth keeping an eye on Angry Badger for more offerings.
