Plastic Soldier Company acquires Armies Army

We are delighted to announce that Plastic Soldier Company has acquired Armies Army and its superb range of high quality 15mm Modern resin and metal vehicles and infantry. All products are now available to buy in the Modern section of the Plastic Soldier Company webstore:-

The introduction of this resin and metal range will complement our plastic range and provide many additional options for us. The range will be introduced over the next few weeks with many items available today.

There is an absolute treasure trove of unreleased vehicles which we will roll out over the coming months plus Keith will continue to design new stuff for us. Our newly acquired extensive CAD data library will also give us the ability to produce selected kits and conversion packs in other scales – 20mm and 10mm………………..

and plastic…………..

Roll on Battlegroup Northag!

10mm you say?

This is good news!

Great news. I hope an early M2 Bradley like the one shown below is in the pipeline. BF has omitted Bradleys in "Stripes" for the game Team Yankee but I'm itching to house-rule them in.

If ANYONE does an early Brad in 1/100 (preferably plastic but I'll settle even for resin & metal), I'll post Team Yankee cards for a Bradley mech infantry platoon here on TMP for y'all like I recently did for alternative SU-17/22, MiG-23 and F-16 air support.

20mm! 20mm! 20mm! How about a GAZ 69 for Arab Israeli?

Don't tell me you think I'm unaware of the Zvezda model. Despite the deceptive box art, the Zvezda Bradley's actually the M2A2 variant with spaced armor, which is too late to use for TY's early to mid-1980s timeframe. And unlike PSC and BF plastic kits, there are only enough parts for one version.

I also looked at the 1/98 Matchbox toys, but they have wheels underneath and the details and quality are lacking.

An early to mid-80's 1/100 M2 Brad would be much appreciated.

Greetings

An interesting development.

As for 1/100 Bradley's have you seen QRF's at link

Thanks, but I'm not too keen on all-metal vehicles. And I've heard that QRF are a bit small compared to other manufacturers'. It does look nice though.

the skytrex resin 1/100 Brads are very nice

28mm Fanatik26 Jan 2018 12:03 p.m. PST

Skytrex's is 1/200 according to their website. Quality Casting also offers an all-metal early M2, but some say the first part of their name is unearned.

I'll just have to be patient. Eventually someone will release a plastic one (fingers crossed).

Appearance is not the end all conclusion. The vehicle stats or data cards used is far more important.
Those of us who have gamed since the 1960-70, do not have to have the exact model to use it. We come from a time when conversions and using what you had was more important.
Having to have an exact model seems silly to us.
The Zvesda model is 15mm though like the WW2, the infantry is 20mm
Use what you want and can get. Then have fun.

Skytrex have had a picture of a 1/100 early Bradley due for imminent release on their front page for nearly 18 months. I just wish they'd get on with it. If they wait much longer they'll miss the boat and someone (PSC?) will.

Alright Rudy, you shamed me ;) I'll get working on those Team Yankee Bradley Mech Platoon cards. Maybe it'll hasten someone to release it, maybe not, but it'll allow you to game with Bradleys using whatever you've got.

I should have the cards posted here sometime next week.

LOL, I prefer the M113 series tracks and TOWs since that was what was in my units between 1975 and 1983.

Natxoman27 Jan 2018 10:14 p.m. PST

You can mail Skytrex to order those 1:100 Bradleys.

I ordered 2 of those some months ago , and plan to order 3 more in the near future (have to deploy that 5 M-3 scout platoon from the team Yankee novel…)

They are not exactly cheap , but they are not too costly , and the quality is Top Notch!!
