New Release: Micro Brick Battle – WWII Armored Combat System Book

bkmg003-microbrickbattle_cover

Micro Brick Battle™ is a fast-paced table top strategy game using 1:120 scale models built with LEGO® bricks. It is a turn-based game for two players (or teams) which continues until one side has completely destroyed the forces of the other (or otherwise completed an objective as set out in a given scenario). This book is intended to provide the basic rules for land-based armored combat. It also provides building instructions and game stats for many of the most commonly used armored vehicles of WWII.

Future expansions of the Micro Brick Battle system will include aerial combat, additional armored vehicles, and Campaign Modules for specific historic battles. We also plan to host Micro Brick Battle tournaments at events around the country starting in mid-2017. This will coincide with the release of our companion card game Bricks of War™, now in development process.

Aside from the basic game rules, the bulk of this book is devoted to building instructions for the basic game piece models. This includes a short section with tips for acquiring the necessary LEGO® pieces and building tips to help you complete your models. The composition of your Micro Brick Battle™ armies are completely up to you; whether you want to recreate historic battles or build an armored juggernaut of your own design. Brickmania will be releasing various game piece mini kits which will be compatible with the Micro Brick Battle system. These will have the added bonus of including the corresponding Bricks of War™ card, which will be necessary for use in the official tournament play.

Often equipped with miniguns, and rocket pods, among other armaments.

Restock: CCKW 2 1/2 Ton Cargo Truck

2104-action-webcard-710

The GMC CCKW 2 1/2 ton 6×6 Truck was the workhorse of the US military’s overland logistics service and one of the most crucial pieces of hardware in the Allied arsenal during World War II. The famous “deuce and a half” (named for the 2½ ton weight of the truck) saw service world wide, with hundreds of thousands being made during the war.  The CCKW was the chief means of cargo hauling used by the famous “Red Ball Express” supply convoy in Europe.  By the end of production in 1945, 562,750 CCKWs in all variants had been built, a total second only to the “Jeep”.

The CCKW kit features:

• Opening doors for the drivers and rear tailgate

• Towing hitch for trailer or artillery

• 1/35 scale matches other Brickmania models

• The over-all color of this model is dark gray with dark tan accents

About the StuG III Ausf. G:

The StuG III Ausf. G is by far the most common of the StuG series, as it is the final variant produced of this line of tanks. Between December 1942 to April 1945 approximately 8,423 units were produced. 142 were built on the Panzer III Ausf. M chassis and 173 were converted from the Panzer III. The upper superstructure was widened, and welded boxes on either side removed. This increased the height to 2160 mm. In May 1943, side hull spaced armor plates were fitted to G models for added armor protection, particularly against Russian anti-tank rifles but were also useful against hollow-charge ammunition. A rotating cupola with periscopes was added for the commander.

The StuG III Ausf. G proved to be very successful in the line of assault guns and served on all fronts as tank destroyers as well. The StuG was cost-effective compared to the heavier German tanks, though in the anti-tank role they were best used defensively as the lack of a traversable turret was a severe disadvantage in the assault role. As the German military situation deteriorated later in the war, more StuG guns were built compared to tanks to replace losses and bolster defenses against the Allied forces. StuG IIIs were also exported into other nations including Finland, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, and Spain.

Specifications:

  • Type: Assault gun
  • Weight: 52,690 lbs (23.9 tons)
  • StuG III Units produced (all variants): 10,086
  • Crew: 4
  • Armor: 16-80 mm
  • Main armament: 1 x 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48
  • Secondary Armament: 1 x 7.92 mm MG34 machine gun with 600 rounds
  • Engine: Maybach HL 120 TRM V-12 gasoline engine, driving six-speed transmission, 300 PS (296 hp)
  • Suspension: Torsion bar
  • Operational range: 96 mi
  • Maximum speed: 25 mph

New Release: WWII British SAS

188-action-webcard-710

The Denison Smock is one of my favorite articles of clothing from WWII. I love how simple yet effective the camouflage pattern is. This is modeled after a 1st pattern smock, an earlier version, when the camouflage was actually painted by hand. This rudimentary process created the beautiful brushstrokes and blending you see in the pattern. Trying to capture that look was the hardest part of this design. Another element to note would be the face. We’ve used this face before on past minifigures, but this time I’ve added a camouflage pattern.

1st Pattern Denison Smock

Paratrooper Trousers

1937 Canvas Gaiters

Black Ammo Boots

This figure features:

  • Full wrap-around custom-printing (6-sided + head)
  • Flesh head with custom printing
  • British Pattern ’37 Vest (hard to find)
  • BrickArms B42 Stiletto knife
  • BrickArms Sten Gun (modified with silencer)
  • Red Beret included with figure
