Brigade Models announces:

First up, a reminder to get your orders for Joy of Six to us as soon as possible, to give us a chance to get them cast and packed. If you're coming to the show, be sure to check out the 6mm Hammer's Slammers game that will be next to our trade stand. The game is being hosted by John Treadaway, erstwhile co-author of The Crucible ruleset. Although it's billed as a demonstration game, we're sure that John will be more than happy to take you through the rules and give you command of a detachment or two.

Sturmpanzerwagen

Today we have a new addition to our 28mm WWI vehicles range. The A7V was Germany's only indigenous tank of the war to see service, and just 20 were built. It had a 57mm main armament and a plethora of machineguns, coupled with thick armor – although this was only steel plate rather than face-hardened armor plate, at 30mm thick it was impervious to machineguns. The downsides were its high silhouette and center of gravity which made it unstable, especially considering the short and narrow tracks. And like all tanks of the era, breakdowns were common – many broke down before ever reaching the front line, and others suffered mechanical failure soon after engaging the enemy so were either lost immediately or destroyed to avoid capture.
