As always, we're feverishly working away on upcoming releases, and the list is quite long (and growing). Deciding what to give priority can sometimes be quite hard, and the Spec-Sec line is probably the more difficult one to organize in a way that the consumer will appreciate. So we are turning to you to ask, "hey, which of these Spec-Sec release would you like to see before the others?"
1. Aero-pursuit (flying things and related items)
2. Rogue borgs and bots (Spec-Sec's gotta have badguys to face, right?)
3. Police, Riot Police, and their conveyances
4. City/urban accessories and dross (dumpsters, kiosks, vending carts and machines, etc.)
5. Military grade Battle-armors
The next Spec-sec release, slatted for mid April or May, is already decided and mostly complete but you'll have to wait until next month for teasers. In the meantime, please give the above list a ponder and give us a response to what YOU would like to see next!
The "Vantage", "Mastiff", and "Skorpios" Drive-armors have been released, as well as the "Parma" Police Battle-armor 3-pack. Pictures of painted examples are underway!
15mm News Flash!
We just released the first pair of Colony-15 character figures, as well as the first character figure and Spec-Sec Response Team for the Spec-sec line. Get them while they're hot!
(note: better photos will be up in a few days.)
In other news, at the beginning of March we will have to raise the prices on both the Colony-15 multi-figure packs as well as shipping (thanks to the USPS). This makes us sad. To try to make ourselves feel better we're building portions of a 15mm compatible city for Spec-Sec games, as well as for some nifty photos. We might even do some design and construction tutorials along the way. As Homer Simpson once said: "Mmmmm.... science fiction future city... mmmmyumyumyumyum..."
The next wave of Colony-15 figures have been sculpted and are heading to production. So, we thought we'd start a little pre-order for them. We have set the shipping date to be the first week of March, but if that changes (one direction or the other) we will let you know.
You can go directly to the new PRE-ORDER page strait away, or keep hanging about on this blog entry for pictures of the greens.
First up are some Colonist Adventurers. These hardy folks (well, the menfolk anyways) were inspired by those feisty pre-WW1 Boers. The trench-style coats aren't so much for keeping the rain off as they are for keeping the sulfuric fog out. each Colonist also has a satchel or carrying case for their respirators. Don't get caught out in the Pale Winds without one!
Continuing to do their best to protect the far flung settlements and ranches of the Uplands are our intrepid and underpaid Magravate Militia. Below we see the command team with radio Operator (on far left, with the heavy pistol), Anti-armor trooper (which is just as good a bust Zonii mounts!), Platoon Leader (yep, the dude with the short cape), Senior NCO, and their runner (literally) on the far right.
The Space Marauders are also getting reinforcements, in the form of some close combat troops, an anti-material rocketeer, and a raider touting a really big heavy beamer. Best give up your livestock and jewelry, or they will literally blow the roof off your place.
And... you asked for them, and we deliver: more Zonii, including some brawlers! A nice way to round out your unmounted warband.
By the way, those clubs are made from the central core of a very long lived species of filter feeding fungus found in some of the deepest canyons of the "downs". Despite it's peaceful manner of feeding, it also has some very mobile, and deadly, tentacles. IF a warrior can kill one with his bare hands, he is entitled to harvest this core for usage around the house, and for bopping colonists on the head, of course. Better wear the big helmet when dealing with these guys...
Again, please feel free to pre-order. Those who do will get their figures before they go on "regular" sale, and orders will be filled as we receive stock (which might even be before the first week of March!)
