Battlegroup Northag from Plastic Soldier Company

Battlegroup Northag from Plastic Soldier Company

We are delighted to welcome you to our exciting new Battlegroup project – Battlegroup Northag. Northag has a fictional setting in 1983 as the Cold War bursts into life.

Battlegroup Northag is a little different from our established WW2 Battlegroup system. For those that know and love the Battlegroup system (and those of you that have yet to embrace Battlegroup!), Northag carries a lot of its DNA from the parent WW2 system, like the Battle rating system and army list building, but has been specifically designed and streamlined for the smaller scale of 10mm (1/144th) to allow for more vehicles on the table and longer gun ranges. No “parking lots” in this game! .

The first Northag book contains rules, scenarios, detailed equipment data and army lists for Soviet and British forces. Future expansions will bring US, West and East German, other Warsaw Pact and Nato forces to the table. We will also be doing an Arab Israeli supplement.

For Northag, we have specifically designed a range of 1/144th scale plastic miniatures, ideally arranged into well-priced company and platoon/troop boxed and blister packs to custom build you forces. We are investing in a new plastic injection moulding system which gives beautifully detailed but robust miniatures with a bit of “barrel flex” suitable for repeated handling on the tabletop and takes paint as well as traditional metal or hard plastic miniatures. Manufacturing will be in house which will give us complete control in supply chain management and ensure that the range will have a very high availability rate. We are very excited about our new plastic miniatures!

Please note, the new Battlegroup Northag rules system and miniatures range will only be available direct from The Plastic Soldier Company in our webstore and at wargames shows and certain selected retailers around the world. Also please note our retail partners will only be carrying the main unit and starter army box packs, smaller blister packs will only be available from The Plastic Soldier Company directly.

We will be doing something a little different to launch this exciting new range...…..

We will be running a Pre-order system to help raise manufacturing funds for a limited time period starting September 2019. If you join the pre-order program you can take advantage of some good discounts and a whole host of juicy freebies. You will also receive your goodies in February 2020, way ahead of the scheduled retail release April 2020

Sign up now to our specific Battlegroup Northag newsletter using the Subscribe Now button below to be informed when the Pre-order program goes live and learn more about this exciting new range over the next few weeks.

Enjoy!

One Israeli TCM-20 ground mount, equipped with a pair of 20mm Hispano-Suiza HS.404 cannons. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The HS.404 is an auto cannon originally designed and produced by French company Hispano-Suiza in the mid-1930s. It was widely used as an aircraft, naval and land-based weapon by French, British, American and other military services, particularly during World War II. The cannon is also referred to as Birkigt type 404, after its designer Marc Birkigt and later versions based on British development are known as 20 mm Hispano.

'Essential Agony': The Battle of Dunbar 1650

'Essential Agony': The Battle of Dunbar 1650

On 3 September 1650, two former allies fought a bitter clash of arms in the rain-soaked fields around the quiet seaside town of Dunbar.

For one, it was a signal mercy which cemented his reputation and paved the way for political as well as military supremacy. For the other, it meant defeat, occupation, and the end of a cause. In England, Dunbar is remembered as one of Cromwell’s most brilliant victories. In Scotland, as an avoidable tragedy caused by the placement of blind faith over sound judgement. And for those whose ancestors suffered in its terrible aftermath, it is a story of both sorrow and survival.

This new analysis of the Battle of Dunbar explores the battlefield and its events in close detail, using the author’s intimate knowledge of the landscape. From the high politics to the individual experience, Arran Johnston brings the story of the Dunbar campaign vividly to life and sets its significance within the context of both the seventeenth century and our own times.

3D Printable STL files for World War 2 Tabletop Wargaming

Hi guys just a quick few words, thank you all its going along nicely, you may have noticed I have added some stretches and shuffled them a little too, this is like I say because I am doing them from your feedback here and on the Facebook page, so 100% of my time is taken with getting the designs done, quality and printability top of my priorities always, so you will see more listed but the order they come might and will change but don't fear they will all be there, after the KS is finished the files will be released as usual within a day or so, my plans then are to take until the new year to go through all past KS projects and make sure they are all delivered 100%, this will not affect in any way this one, but it will get me ready for whatever comes next, ill give your wallets a break until after crimbo and then we will see what direction to go in for the next.

Oh yes this is the important bit for this one, i am away for 3 days this coming week, i will be designing but I'm not sure of Internet so if i go dark don't fear i will be back with 6-7 days left to tick off the clock so plenty of time to update things, you wont notice other than the pics for the stretches might get delayed until i get a steady connection on my return.

Right that's the boring stuff done now back to designing for you guys.

12mm AVGP Cougar, Grizzly or Husky Butlers Printed Models

One Canadian AVGP Cougar, Grizzly or Husky. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The AVGP (Armoured Vehicle General Purpose) is a series of three armoured fighting vehicles ordered by the Canadian military in the 1970s. The vehicles, which are the Grizzly, Cougar and Husky, were based on the six-wheeled version of the Swiss MOWAG Piranha I.

The Canadian Army retired all AVGP variants beginning in 2005; however, a number of the retired vehicles were transferred to other militaries and police forces, where they continue to serve.

The AVGP had propellers and trim vanes for amphibious use, like the eight-wheeled Bison, which was the vehicle family's immediate successor. Recent retrofits have removed the marine drive system, as it was seldom used and maintenance was costly. The Canadian Army's LAV III, the United States Marine Corps' LAV-25, and the US Army's Stryker are other variants of the LAV family and directly evolved from the Canadian designs.

Choose either:
Cougar armoured fire support vehicle with the turret from the Scorpion tank
Grizzly APC - with smaller Cadillac-Gage machine gun turret
Husky MRV (Maintenance and Recovery Vehicle) with crane
