I Am Getting Very Jealous of the 15mm Crowd!

Man, you guys are getting a lot of nice stuff lately. First, there is the Post-Apocalyptic boat line coming from The Scene in the UK. This stuff is perfect for a Pirates of the Vistula-inspired game. They look great painted up, to be frank, and if anyone's put them together (they don't look too difficult to do so), please chime in.

Perfect for a Vistula river cruise. Sadly, there is no luxury to be found at all, and accommodations are best described as "rustic", but after the nukes fall, you take what you can get. Photo taken from the The Scene

Another small development is more images from Plastic Soldier Company about the 15mm Soviet Cold War figures. They have announced a "Willstarter" with a target of 200 like the 1/72 T-55 project that has been discussed at length here.

The photos are well, stunning in quality for PSC, which is their usual standard, but I really must say, I like the sculpts I see coming out of this project.
I love the group shot here, the poses are dynamic, and the RPG Gunner looks great. Hope they do this in 20mm. Photo taken from PSC

Bit dated for Twilight:2000, but this could work for a Category III or Mobilization Only unit? Plus, it does work well for late 70's and early 80s. Photo taken from PSC.


As I said, the uniforms are a bit dated for Twilight: 2000 but for older formations, this works very well indeed. Not to mention, clothing stocks by 2000 are going to be...sparse. In short, these are great figures for this project and if you game in 15mm, this would be a good project to back.

I do want to apologize for my less active posting of late here. As I mentioned, I am getting married next month, to be exact, the 21st of October, to this lovely lady. I love you sweetheart, you make all things, including this blog, possible. And I look forward to more to come.

More News from Plastic Soldier Company

Color me impressed with the recent efforts from Plastic Soldier Company! I am really, and I mean really happy with the speed and alacrity I am seeing their Cold War product line develop.

I will let their Facebook announcement speak for itself, but again, I am very impressed indeed:

Another Cold War Friday!

We are going to run another "Willstarter" Pre-order program. Once we have 200 pre-orders it will go into production. We have put a stock counter of 200 on the product so you can all see the total grow.

AND....

The design team have started work on the next 15mm Cold War vehicle kit, can you guess what it is........?

Next week... its back to WW2!

What can I say, I am impressed to say the least. This is all gear that is very useful to the Twilight: 2000 - inspired miniature gamer. It's looking as if things are coming along. I do hope the T-55 "Willstarter" is concluded soon as I am looking forward to that effort coming to fruition so we can review some of them here for you. I suspect PSC's usual high standards and ease of construction will shine through again here.

In other news, as I have said, things are a bit light now due to my impending nuptials. I am going to be at the National Capitol Model Soldier Society's show tomorrow, and I will be wearing my blue Potomac Wargamer's polo shirt, so if you see me and love the blog? Come on by and chat, I will be there representing, and showing off some of my Battletech/Alpha Strike efforts.

I will post a show report in any case!
