Brigade Models – Neuheiten:
Next into the Salute line-up are these new 1/700th scale Coastal Forts. We have three models (or rather, two individual models plus a set of four). The largest is Fort Paté, a small oval Vauban fortification in the Gironde estuary in France, built at the end of the 17th century. We also have a 1/700th versions of the Lascaris Towers in Malta – both of these were recently released in the Small Scale Scenery range. The third new model is the rather unusual Aldeburgh Martello Tower from the Suffolk coast, the largest of the Martello Towers on the UK coastline. It’s effectively four towers joined together to give it a distinctive quatrefoil shape. As an added bonus we also have a 1/1000th version in the Small Scale Scenery range.
Making their debut at Salute 2021 are the redesigned Argentine Imperial Skies fleet. There are seven craft in all – replacements for the existing five models, plus a new battlecruiser, the Libertad, and a frigate, the Guerrico. They retain the design style that Phil came up with many years ago with the intersecting circular deck layouts, and which at the time he carefully crafted by hand. These new versions are all digitally designed, which makes life much easier !
We have a new range that will consist of models that could fit into our other ranges – spaceships, tanks, buildings etc – but all with a medical theme. So we will have hospital ships, armoured ambulances, stretcher and first aid teams, full-size hospitals in the Small Scale Scenery range, even healers and apothecaries for Celtos. We wanted to create a range of suitably themed models, but ones that would fit into your existing collections and be useful in gaming terms. We’ll be donating 50% of the net sale price (eg the price without VAT) of each model to MacMillan Cancer Care for the forseeable future.
We will be releasing the first models at Salute, but the range will continue to be added to over time as we have flashes of inspiration. Not everything is painted and photographed yet, but here are some 6mm buildings to start off with – Medical Centres for the 6mm Desert, Moonbase and Research Base sets. As you can see, there’s nothing on the models that makes them specifically medical centres (the red cross on the Moonbase unit is just painted on a blank panel), so if you want to just use them as a generic building then you can.
We will have stocks of the new figures at SELWG, although the hoped-for new vehicles to accompany them won’t quite be ready. And unfortunately we’ll be short of one Brigadier (and more importantly, one car down) on Sunday so that may affect what we’re able to bring. It’s more likely that we’ll drop some of the display models – the display cases look good but take up a lot of room in the car and a lot of extra stock can be fitted into the same space. So the stand may look slightly different with fewer display models, but we’ll still have as much stock as possible.

And finally, here’s a teaser of their upcoming rides – we’re planning as many as a dozen variants of these dune-buggy-style vehicles in 4×4, 6×4 and half-track configurations, with armament options including AA guns and missiles. With a bit of luck we’ll have them at Salute.
We have two new 6mm buildings today, just to keep the city builders amongst you occupied.
