land-ironcladsWith a few new models just added, it’s a good time to mention Land Ironclads, a line of miniatures and combat rules from Brigade Models. The game is like a steampunk version of Ogre.

The kings of the battlefield are huge fighting machines, the Ironclads of the title, which cross the landscape on tracks, wheels or even primitive mechanical legs, dealing destruction wherever they go. Small steam-driven machines, known as contraptions and akin to the tanks of the First World War, scurry between the hulking ironclads creating their own smaller form of mayhem.

The latest additions are British and German ironclad divisions, but also available are Olympians, giant alien mechanical walkers.
