New release: PLA Type 47 – Kondor and Babylon Pattern

The Type 47 is a new walker that has been recently issued to the SSU Army, starting with the PLA. For years its armored regiments received second hand vehicles but this has changed recently. Thanks to its two massive Tesla guns, the Type 47 is a threat to even the heaviest vehicles on the planet. Its dual machinegun easily takes care of lighter armor or enemy infantry.

“The Desert Scorpion Troopers are being developed as Hard Plastic figurines. The tooling process for such figurines is not only more expensive, it is also super demanding… After digital sculpture the figurines need to be engineered for molding and then retouched before the actual molds can be processed. The third phase is starting next week.”

New release: Trucks and walkers and guns, oh my

Big release today. Two new units each for Mercs, Desert Scorpions and Luftwaffe!

With the recent renewal of fierce combats in the Middle-East, the Allies have been calling every reinforcements they could muster, but eventually had to hire Mercenary companies to help them turn the tide in their favor. As such, they have provided these new “allies” with some recent equipment, mixed with some old stuff laying around. Mercs mechanics did a wonderful job and created war machines that even regular Allied troops envy.

The Desert Scorpions of the Long Range Desert Group have arrived! Still fighting a long war in Northern Africa against Axis forces who have returned, the elite corp of the Desert Scorpions have expanded to the rest of the Middle-East to counter the new threats that have arise. With their lightning strikes capabilities and seasoned troops, they are a welcome reinforcement to all Allied soldiers in the region.

Once they’ve jumped, Paratroopers of the Luftwaffe need as much heavy support as possible. One of the easiest ways is to drop dedicated support units like the Rocket Launcher Squad and the Anti-tank Squad. These specialized squads are equipped with heavy weapons that greatly enhance the offensive capabilities of Fallschirmjäger formations. This reference will allow you to assemble the two following variants:
– the Fallschirmjäger Rocket Launcher Squad takes on all types of enemy infantry and light vehicles at a safe distance.
– the Fallschirmjäger Anti-tank Squad allows your forces to engage armored targets from a relative safe distance, with pretty good chance of making them into smoldering heaps of metal.
