New French Land Ironclads from Brigade

What ho chaps! Jolly exciting news and pantograph imagery of the wonderful new model French land ironclads from those clever chaps at Brigade Models in their Maidstone factorium.

Release is imminent so dig out those bank notes and get your butler ready to pop along to the post office to buy a penny black and post an order to the Brigade chappies. At last we'll be able to recreate the damned thrashing we gave the Froggies at Caterham on our sand tables! Huzzah!

The pantographs show the new models alongside some Irregular French infantry and cavalry so you can assess scale and marvel in the wonderfulness of the new models.

Detendu class one land ironclad:


Immuablement class two land ironclad:


Vengeance class three land ironclads:


Glorieux class four land ironclads:


Blockhaus Roulant class five land ironclads:

We've also managed to sneak out some exclusive top hole news which we'll share with you once we have clearance from GHQ so keep your Babbage Engine warmed up and get your man servant to check back regularly you enjoy a good cheese board and fine port.

Thanks for giving us the heads up on these - the first class Ironclad in particular has captured the essence of 'jeune ecole' dreadnought design - excellent!

These are just lovely. Looks like my game at the CNSE will get some French support after all.

The models look great. And I can't stop laughing from the post and comments... :P

Bother it all... seems my butler has gone on French leave, taking my wallet, my port, my cigars and my favorite upstairs maid along with him! The cheek of the fellow! Now I shall have to go out myself and manage the purchase. When he is found, he'll get a good sound thrashing!

J Womack Esq, when you find the blighter give him a damned good thrashing, set your hounds on him and then give him both barrels of your twelve bore.
