Belgian LIs: Rolling Hot!

OK, I'm getting my VSF and Hammers Slammers mixed up, but you get the point: the Belgian LI range is now available from Brigade Models!

Positioned between the mighty powers of France and Germany, Belgium often ends up caught in the crossfire. Recreate the fight for survival of the plucky Belgians with our new range of Land Ironclads models. 

There are five models in total - three ironclads, two contraptions, and a pair of battalion packs.

Turkish Delight

New goodies from Brigade - more Turks at last!

After several years stuck in development hell, we can finally announce the release of the twin-hulled dirigible Ottoman battleship Barbaros Hayreddin. This floating behemoth will certainly add steel to the forces of the Sultan in the Middle-East. 
As if that wasn't enough, the scheming Grand Vizier's engineers have modified the design to carry a flight deck and hangars and created the Abdulmecid class fighter carrier. Both models are available individually or in two new fleet packs, along with the new Turkish Grand Fleet Pack

Heath Advice for the Fairer Sex

Ladies: Do you have feelings of inadequacy?     Do you suffer from shyness?      
Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. It can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of Sauvignon almost immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many talents you never knew you had.

Stop hiding and start living.

Sauvignon may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use it. However, women who wouldn't mind nursing orbecoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, incarceration, erotic lustfulness, loss of motor control, loss of clothing, loss of money, loss ofvirginity, delusions of grandeur, table dancing, headache, dehydration, dry mouth, and a desire to sing Karaoke and play all-night rounds of Strip Poker, Truth Or Dare, and Naked Twister!


* The consumption of Sauvignon may make you think you are whispering when you are not.
* The consumption of Sauvignon may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them.
* The consumption of Sauvignon may cause you to think you can sing.
* The consumption of Sauvignon may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.
* The consumption of Sauvignon may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.

Please feel free to share this important information with as many women as you feel may benefit!
