Wargaming Week 21/01/2019

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 14th through to the 20th of January.


Nothing this week – it’s not really been a very hobby active time.


On the other hand, so much news.

Black Site Studios has released a pile of buildings suitable for Ultramodern Middle East battles. They have really focused on the more urban areas, and the first release is a nice pair of focal buildings as well as various walls.

As with all Black Site stuff, these are prepainted MDF and so are ideal for getting onto the board quickly.

But that’s not all! There was a second wave of releases focusing on smaller buildings designed to add to the battlefield, giving you a few smaller obstacles that will need to be fought around or through.

Finally, great news for UK gamers! Spectre Miniatures will be stocking the Black Site stuff this side of the pond. Initially it will be for pre-order but there are plans to have them alongside the other things you might need to get started wargaming.

Speaking of Spectre, they have also been showing off something new. The lump of resin you can see in the photo is a JLTV, the replacement for the Humvee and Spectre are adding it to their range soon! From talking to them, this is going to be cross-compatible with the Humvee turret and weapon systems, giving your troops a wide selection of weapon systems to get online and use.

And speaking of weapons, Spectre have also preview this rather heavily armed Remote Weapon system. Armed with a 30mm cannon, Javelin ATGM tube and a M240 MMG, this system really does have something for every occasion.

Empress Miniatures have also been showing off something new. This preview shows a WIP of a German Puma IFV, ideal to backup your Empress Modern Germans that came out last year. Finally, they can ride to battle as originally intended.

Lastly, Under FIre Miniatures have been expanding their 28mm Bush Wars range, with more RhSAS (including a mortar team) and even some Selous Scouts with a nice selection of kit.




Honestly, this hasn’t really been a week for wargaming stuff. The only thing was meeting up with a friend on Saturday to play around with some rule ideas we had been looking at. More details soon? Maybe? I’m not sure.

That’s it for this update, expect more updates next week!
