Ho Ho Ho! The boys at Brigade say:
So what does the Brigade cracker have in her stockings for you this year ... ?
Yep that's 15% off all of our models - Aeronef, starships, Land Ironclads, 15mm and 6mm tanks, Iron Stars, WWI Belgians ... all except Celtos, where we're being even more generous ...
And that's it - no minimum or maximum orders, just a blanket discount for the whole of December. So what are you waiting for, get shopping !?
The website will still show the full price of each item, but the price that goes into the PayPal shopping cart will be the discounted one.
There are just a few exceptions and conditions, as you might expect ... percentage shipping rates will still be charged at the full item cost, since we were unable to persuade the post office to match our offers ! The discount covers our metal and resin models - it doesn't apply to rulebooks, dice, bases, game mats or anything else that we don't manufacture ourselves, simply because the margins on those items are much tighter. However, starter packs with rules, dice or bases in are covered. Even with these limitations, we're sure you'll agree it's a mighty fine offer !
Who is this mysterious Raygun wielding assassin?...
No one knows for sure.One theory holds that she is
Which theory is true? Well you'll just have to bloody

base between Fort Grant and The Khyber Pass. In bygone
years it had been subjected to small nuisance raids conducted
by local tribesmen too numerically weak to do more than cut
the wire and disturb supplies coming in. In early 1898/2008
attacks suddenly intensified causing Imperial authorities to
order a more vigorous presence. Reinforcements began
arriving in late July.
General Pettygree's relief column continues its march from
Fort Grant to Tranjapour. The most forward unit is 1st Troop
1/9th. Bengal Lancers acting as a screen. They are followed in
turn by 2nd. Troop 1/9th Bengal Lancers, two troops of 2/9th
Bengal Lancers, three companies of the 1st. Sikh Infantry
Battalion, 1/1 Mountain Battery and the supply element.

The Tukulor Empire has been defeated these past 12 years. The French Sudan is relatively quiet, and the Shadow's attentions have turned south through the desert and into the Sahel region of the Sudan and the new colonial administration there. An uprising is fermenting, and the French are totally unsuspecting.
This is an early adventure from the life of Colonel Kurtz, a renegade German, formerly of the French Foreign Legion, Force Publique and Mercenary. Kurtz's dominance of a hill, overlooking a river used by the Germans in their advance into the interior has prompted an attack of Kurtz's realm.
