A requiem for Salute 2013

Well, that's Salute over for another year. Thank you to everyone who came to the show; to all the clubs and individuals who put on the games, to all the traders who brought their wares, and most of all to the (provisional count) 5,000 people who came through the door.

As always, it will take us a few days to get our pictures up online, but we'll do our best.

We're now looking at what to do for next year; we have dates booked for the show in 2014 and 2015, and the planning starts with our next committee meeting in a fortnight. Please send us any comments you have on the show - we love it, but we know every year has to be better than the previous one, so tell us what you want!

Figures In Comfort at Salute 2013

Well, less than a week to go before Salute 2013 at London's Excel Centre, and Figures in Comfort have a number of new goodies ready to go for this show.

We will have with us the new tray 31b which has been designed to hold two of the Wings of Glory bombers (Gotha's or Caproni's) along with the stands, cards and pegs to use with the models.

We will also have in stock two new (for us) ranges of Litko markers, tokens and bases. The first is the new range of Star Fighter items, which are suitable for a certain space combat system which has proved popular!

The second range is tokens suitable for use with 15mm WWII systems and would enhance your gaming table. 

We will obviously have our usual selection of trays, carry cases, plastic cases and HMG products and even more Litko than you can shake a stick at.Kev and I will look forward to seeing you at the show.

You will find us at stand TE02

Mongoose Publishing at Salute 2013

Two new releases for Salute from Mongoose!

The awesome Manta Prowl Tank and the Sov Judge Invasion Force

Manta Prowl Tank

The Manta Prowl Tank was the Justice Department’s answer to a growing crime wave. Often regarded as a mobile floating fortress of anti-crime measures, the Manta can strike fear into the heart of the most desperate perp and is fully capable of dealing with entire riots by itself. With clear skies, the Manta can reach great speed and features a Peterson High Intensity Laser Cannon with adjustable wide beam mode, stumm gas dispensers and riot foam jets as its primary armament; allowing it to tackle anything from an angry mob to the most heavily armoured vehicle. In addition, the Manta is also armed with two twin-linked fast action anti-personnel lasers and can be further modified with heavier weaponry as the situation demands, potentially making them the equal of any battle tank in terms of firepower. On board holding cells can imprison up to thirty perps.

Two pilots control its great bulk with exceptional agility, while four street judges constantly monitor on-board scanners for any sign of local crime, ready to take the Law to perps outside upon Lawmasters stored within the Manta’s forward bay. There are also compartments that allow on-board tek- and med-judges to function effectively, while more street judges monitor the holding cells, communications and weapon systems of the tank. Overall command is given to a senior judge.

With such awesome capability wrapped into one heavily armoured hull, the Manta Prowl Tank is an outward symbol of the judges’ absolute authority within Mega-City One.

This is a resin model with some metal parts that requires some assembly and painting.

Sov Judges

After years of meticulous planning, Supreme Judge Bulgarin of East Meg One launched the Apocalypse War against Mega-City One. Through the use of nukes, the Apocalypse Shield and a full scale invasion under Warmarshal Kazan, Mega-City One was subjugated quickly, with half of its 800 million citizens killed. Through the heroic actions of a handful of judges, Mega-City One was able to finally win the war, destroying East Meg One in the process. However, there are many in East Meg Two who plan revenge against the west…

An East Meg Invasion Force is designed to eradicate all resistance in Mega-City One. With well-equipped and well-trained judges, not to mention the dreaded Sentenoids, it is very much an ‘elite’ force.
