1-453010801 Warlord Games, Clockwork Goblin KONFLIKT '47: Soviet Siberian Terror Squad The pack contains five 28mm metal figures. This product is supplied unassembled and unpainted. Glue and paints not included.

Through a combination of espionage, scientific exploitation of prisoners, and defecting scientists, the Soviet Union gained substantial knowledge of the German super-soldier and gene-splicing programs and produced its own versions of DNA enhanced soldiers. In an effort to make soldiers immune to the cold, a method of making monsters out of men was discovered. With a form of anti-freeze in their veins, these 'ghouls' are immune to cold and fire and have a freezing touch that can cause immediate damage.

These fast fanatical nightmarish creatures can cause havoc in amongst your enemies lines, move up fast (don't worry about flame weapons as they're immune) to take advantage of their combat prowess!1 vol, 5 pgs 2016 UK, WARLORD GAMES

1-213050 Mersey, Daniel THE PIKEMAN'S LAMENT: Pike and Shot Wargaming Rules Recreate the action and drama of 17th Century warfare -- including the Thirty Years' War, the English Civil Wars, and the Great Northern War -- with core mechanics based on Lion Rampant rules.

Start by creating your Officer - is he a natural leader raised from the ranks, the youngest son of a noble family, or an old veteran who has seen too many battles? As you campaign, your Officer will win honor and gain promotion, acquiring traits that may help lead his men to victory.

Before each skirmish, your Officer must raise his Company from a wide range of unit options - should he lean towards hard-hitting heavy cavalry or favor solid, defensively minded infantry? Companies are typically formed from six to eight units, each made up of either six or 12 figures, and quick, decisive, and dramatic games are the order of the day. 1 vol, 64 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-975052 Pegler, Martin 052 COLT SINGLE-ACTION REVOLVERS In 1836, Samuel Colt changed the face of warfare with the production of the first of a series of iconic and influential single-action revolvers, including the .44-caliber Colt Walker and the seminal .45-caliber Colt Single Action Army, which remains in production today. These weapons shifted the role of the pistol from single-shot weapon of last resort to a practical and powerful sidearm that gave the user the ability to defend himself once his primary armament was discharged. It transformed cavalry tactics and relegated the sword to a largely ceremonial role in many armies.

Featuring full-color artwork, expert analysis and gripping first-hand accounts, this is the absorbing story of Colt's family of single-action revolvers, covering their origins, development, use and lasting impact on the modern world.1 vol, 80 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-995242 Hampshire, Edward 242 SOVIET COLD WAR GUIDED MISSILE CRUISERS Heavily armed and formidable, guided missile cruisers formed the core of the Soviet Navy during the Cold War. From the last class of conventional Sverdlov-class cruisers through to increasingly complex and formidable missile cruisers, these ships ensured that NATO took the Soviet naval threat seriously. Soviet Cold War Guided Missile Cruisers covers all classes of these impressive warships, from the early Sverdlov through the Kynda, Kresta, Kara, and Slava to the enormous Kirov classes.

Together, these vessels marked the apogee of Soviet naval technology and capability and they remain today the largest non-aircraft carrier warships built since 1945. Containing material previously only available in Russian and fully researched from specialist defense journals, this comprehensive volume examines the design, development, and intended role of these impressive, hi-tech warships, and recounts their dramatic operational history as NATO and Soviet warships faced off against each other during the long Cold War at sea. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-996303 Fields, Nic 303 LAKE TRASIMENE 217 BC: Ambush and Annihilation of a Roman Army Following Hannibal's crushing victory at the battle of the Trebbia, the reeling Roman Republic sent a new army under the overconfident consul Caius Flaminius to destroy the Carthaginian invaders - unbeknownst to him they were ready and waiting. The destruction of the Roman force at Lake Trasimene firmly established Hannibal as one of the Ancient World's greatest commanders thanks to his use of innovative tactics, including the first recorded use of a turning movement. The Romans would not send another major army to confront him until the battle of Cannae in 216 BC.

This new study, based on recent archaeological work on the battlefield itself, tells the full story of one of Hannibal's greatest victories with the help of maps, full-color illustrations, and detailed sections on the make-up of the armies and their commanders.1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-213040 Dr. Lesley Prince & Laurence Spring RUSSIAN INFANTRY FLAGS OF THE NAPOLEONIC WARS The aim of this book is simple: to provide the reader with as complete and accurate a catalogue of Russian Infantry flags used during the Napoleonic Wars, systematically set out and easy to consult. The authors have consulted contemporary sources and informed commentary widely and have produced what is perhaps the definitive source book on the subject.

Each of the illustrations has been prepared with accuracy and clarity in mind, and there is an accompanying text which clarifies some of the ambiguities in the source material. So far as the authors are aware, there is nothing like this book in print either in English or Russian anywhere else in the world.1 vol, 144 pgs 2016 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS
