Normans Offer at 15mm.co.uk!

NC6 Norman Command Set
We have some very large ranges of 15mm scale historicals here at 15mm.co.uk.  Some might say we do not show them as much love as we do our big Fantasy and Science Fiction ranges but that ain't the case.  We seldom have releases in this area compared to the others and since almost all our news is releases it does not get mentioned much.  But they are there and they are popular too.  So  we have a special offer for you on Isarus brand 15mm Normans from now until the 12th September 2014.

We are offering 15% off the regular prices of all N and NC codes which are single miniatures or small sets for maximum choice.  The prices are all changed on our site and all you need do is add to the cart.  Go HERE.

The Normans

N1 Norman Swordsman
N2 Norman Heavy Mail Spear
N3 Norman Heavy Scale Spear
N4 Norman Medium Spear
N5 Norman Arriere Ban Spear
N6 Norman Arriere Ban Javelin
N7 Norman Archer
N8 Norman Crossbow
N9 Norman Infantry Command (2 Miniatures) 

NC1 Norman Knight
NC2 Norman Mounted Retainer
NC3 Norman Breton Heavy Cavalry
NC4 Norman Breton Light Cavalry
NC5 Norman Knight charging
NC6 Norman Mounted Command (3 Miniatures)

The Norman Range is well suited to any 15mm scale historical wargame system such as DBA, DBM and so on.

Thanks for Reading.

Using Litko Tokens in your games of USEME by David Starkey

Last week I was contacted by a fan of USEME who wanted to show 15mm.co.uk his latest idea.  I thought it was so cool that I wanted to share it with you all.  Enjoy the read and the pictures.  Super fast and simple wargaming.  GBS

Recently I had some personalized game token made by Litko to use in my USE ME games at home. I decided on the shape and color of the tokens and up to 12 characters could be printed on each one. Each pack contains 10 tokens so there are plenty to use in a skirmish or small battle. 
 
As you can see I had orange “winged” tokens and red “struck” tokens to place next to my figures on the war games table.

When used with well painted figures it really makes a nice impression as the scenario unfolds across the table. It also makes it easy to keep track of each figure and what state they are in as they travel to victory or certain death with each roll of the dice. I use them with my USE ME Civil War, Fantasy, Old West, and Sci-Fi rules. They are definitely a versatile addition to my 15mm.co.uk rules and figures.

These figures from the Laserburn 15mm Science Fiction range are in rough shape with three of them suffering hits.


Follow the link to the ordering page where I found these nice additions to my USE ME scenarios.  Thanks.

More New Post Apocalypse HOF Packs at 15mm.co.uk

This week we are expanding the domain of the wasteland warriors of the lords of the chem clouds again. That's right two more packs in the Post Apocalyptic setting so that you can carve out a little radioactive place of your own on the gaming table. Sculpted by Elton Waters the designer behind the Security Force Alpha part of the HOF Range and the Automatons too as well as the rest of the Post Apoc packs.  There are now five packs in this part of the range! 

Go HERE for the whole HOF 15mm Science Fiction Range including these new releases.

Here are the details of the two new packs.
HOF20
HOF20 Rear
HOF20 Post Apocalyptic Warriors II
This pack contains ten miniatures taken from four poses of human males wearing rags and trenchcoats all bare footed and sporting scavenged helmets. All of the poses are armed with short barrelled automatic weapons such as SMG's. Good for backing up HOF55 and supporting the other packs in this part of the HOF range such as Command and Support packs. Great for use as normal or mutant or other gang forces for road warriors or urban decay. Or of course as the minions of a mad dictator of an empire of radioactive dust. You can buy a pack or three packs saving ten percent off the price or choose single miniatures.

HOF21
HOF21 Rear
HOF21 Post Apocalyptic Assault
This pack contains ten miniatures taken from three poses for close in attacks and savage raids. Armed with pistols and blades such as knifes and hatchets and wearing scavenged masks and hoods. Great for use as normal or mutant or other gang forces for road warriors or urban decay. Or of course as the minions of a mad dictator of an empire of radioactive dust. You can buy a pack or three packs saving ten percent off the price or choose single miniatures.

HOF18
HOF19
We released two other new Post Apocalyptic packs into HOF back in July. These are their details on this previous blog post HERE.

If you like Post Apocalypse 15mm wargaming then before the bomb falls you will want to check out the excellent rules systems for gaming in this setting which we have. If you like bigger games then Alien Squad Leader has an Army Template for fielding Gangers and if you like skirmishing wargaming then UM007 USEME Post Apocalypse is for you. Our HOF 15mm miniatures work well with either of them. Click through for more information on each of them.

Watch out for petty dictators carving a bloody road to perdition on your travels!

Alien Squad Leader 2.0 review at Dropship Horizon Blog


Time for a blast from the past.  Since we released the new 100 Point pre-made army for Alien Squad Leader, ASL02 Human Colonial, a couple of weeks ago we have been getting asked if there are any online reviews of the game.  Well there were but no recently so I set out to look for one and link it to here.  I found the great review written upon release back in 2009 by Mark Hannam who was the creator and owner of Dropship Horizon blog at that time.   You can read it HERE.


Mark had a copy of the book and gave it a very positive review after reading it.  An experienced wargamer and at that time science fiction fanatic he lauded it in many ways examining it from many angles.  If you are interested in Alien Squad Leader after reading the review then go to its page on our website and read more about it.

We are working on the next army pack for ASQL with the coming release this week being along those lines.  I will give details at the time.

Thanks for Reading.

New HOT 15mm Trolls released at 15mm.co.uk



Using a Human femur as a toothpick and absently leaning on a wooden club that used to be a fully grown tree Trolls are mighty dangerous if stupid foes on the battlefield.  15mm.co.uk has made your little warriors lives all the more dangerous today with the release of our new 15mm scale white metal Trolls.  Back in the middle of July I showed off the greens for these new monsters in a Sneak Peek which is worth reading for the insights into the design process if for nothing else now.  But lets get back to the main show the big and nasty that likes to create carnage.

We now have four codes of Trolls in the HOT 15mm Fantasy range each with its own merits.  Here are the details:

Go HERE.

Here is a picture of the Trolls with a 15mm TTF Human Bard for scale purposes as this miniature is not supplied but can be found in code 505 Human Characters I.


We will be releasing more new miniatures into the HOT Range during this year and if you have an idea about what they should be them drop me an email and tell me about it.  These new miniatures today only exist due to customers requests.
