- Battlestorm, 25+ mm Ral Partha Publishing 14-001 ($29.95).
Medieval fantasy battle system (scale is "legendary") -- In a miniature game it’s impossible to move more than one unit at a time, but Battlestorm plays fast and deadly with near real time action and reaction. To simulate simultaneous movement, Battlestorm uses a simple table-free combat system that requires an attacker to declare any melee combat BEFORE he moves. This way the opponent has the option of counter-attacking, fleeing or even attacking some other unit. Combat can fire off an exciting chain reaction that suddenly draws many units into the fray. These explosion of carnage are called Battlestorms, and they often mean a battle can hinge on a few critical decisions. (RPP)

- #R1/BB BUTTER-BOARD, GOLDENWEST MFG., Inc.
BUTTER-BOARD is a light weight plastic block that is non-abrasive and very easy to machine or work with hand tools. This plastic can be hand sanded with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper to a nice smooth sheen prior to painting. #R1/BB is a good alternative to machineable wax as it is physically stronger and less likely to break, especially on thin wall areas down to 1⁄16″ thick. A liquid R1/BB Premix system is also available.
