I hope that 2018 is treating you all well so far, and that those of you who have gone down with various seasonal coughs and colds are now recovering..... well, to cheer things up in the bleak middle of January, the promised NEW RELEASES are now ready for sale - with a couple of weeks left before the January Discount Vouchers expire - so if you've been waiting for these before placing your order, here they are!

A FULL RANGE of all the essential packs for the new ESU REGULAR ARMY, as previewed late last year with the introductory SG15-E41 pack (now relisted as a standard 8-figure pack); now with NINE packs, including Command and the various Heavy Weapons teams, PLUS a very useful little 6-wheeled "mule" as a light transport/towing vehicle.
As explained when the E41 pack was launched, these figures are variants of the ESU Naval Infantry range, with new helmets and additional kit giving them a very different look - while the Naval Infantry are the "Marines" of the ESU Space Naval forces, the Regular Army are the grunts who make up the majority of the Eurasian Solar Union ground troops.

SG15-E41        ESU Regular Army Rifle Troops A - 8 figs, 2 each of 4 poses.
SG15-E42        ESU Regular Army Rifle Troops B - 8 figs, 2 each of 4 poses.
SG15-E43        ESU Regular Army SAW Gunners - 8 figs, 2 each of 4 poses.
SG15-E44        ESU Regular Army Special Weapons (Snipers and Portable Missile Launchers) troops - 8 figs, 2 each of 4 poses
SG15-E45        ESU Regular Army Command and Comms pack - 8 figs, 2 each of 4 poses.
SG15-E46        ESU Regular Army Tribarrel Autocannon teams - 2 guns with light wheeled carriages, 4 crew figures (2 per gun), plus bonus sprues of spare ammo cans
SG15-E47        ESU Regular Army Medium Mortar teams - 2 drum-fed mortar tubes with light wheeled carriages, 4 crew figures (2 per mortar), plus bonus sprues of spare ammo cans
SG15-E48        ESU Regular Army Anti-Vehicle Missile System (AVMS) teams - two complete weapon teams, each consisting of launcher (with optional parts to assemble as 2-round or 4-round system) on light wheeled carriage, 2 crew figures and packs of reload missiles
SG15-E51        ESU Electric Mule (6-wheel light vehicle) with Regular Army driver - light transport load carrier used as towing vehicle for Mortar, AVMS and Tribarrel teams (multi-part kit of one vehicle with driver)

To see (and purchase!) all these new codes, scroll down to the foot of the front page of the store and click on the relevant featured items, or simply go to the ESU page of the 15mm Infantry listings.

Tanker's Tuesday: Rolling Hot With Hammers Slammers

Hammer's Slammers are one of the most powerful mercenary companies in existence. They are led by Colonel Alois Hammer and are greatly feared. They are among the best-trained and equipped troops in the galaxy, although they are not polished and are sometimes judged by this. Officers are expected to lead from the front. One of the most powerful weapons in the Hammer's Slammers arsenal is their hover tank. Along with the hover tank, Hammer's Slammers operate combat cars, Mobile 200 mm howitzers, air cars, and skimmers for the infantry. Crews often give their combat vehicles unusual names including names like Flame Thrower", "Death dealer", and "Daisy Belle"

The Big 60!

Hey buddy welcome to the sixth decade of existence....It's not so bad, trust me!

Prang From Ion Age's 15mm Range

Lot of 13 minis for use in scifi skirmish games like Patrol Angis,
Stargrunt, Tomorrow's War. GRUNTZ, etc.  Intended to be a used
as small force of alien mercenaries/raiders.  These are Prang from
Ion Age's 15mm range, extremely chunky humanoid aliens that
stand a little taller than an average human in scale and are about
three times as bulky.  Imagine a hippo-sized bipedal frog in heavy
carapace armor carrying suitably massive weaponry and that's a

Total of 13 heavy infantry with an eclectic mix of weaponry and gear,
including several personality types, one with a pet, another waving 
sword around like this is a 40K game, and three heavy weapon
