En Garde! is a small-scale skirmish game based on the successful Ronin rules, in which small groups of warriors fight each other for honour or riches. Rather than just rolling a few dice, the rules allow players to make tactical decisions about how the models that they control will fight - offensively, defensively, or by applying special skills and abilities. En Garde! covers the conflicts of the 16th, 17th and early 18th centuries, when black-powder weapons started to become common in battle but martial prowess still determined the outcome. Play as Border Reivers, Conquistadors, Landsknechts, Aztecs, French Musketeers, Caribbean Pirates and many more, in scenarios that evoke classic engagements of the genre. Simple campaign rules allow multiple scenarios to be played in sequence and permit warbands to develop over time. An appendix is also included to provide brief rules for supernatural creatures of the period - monsters, demons, revenants and witches - and new abilities and equipment to fight them, making En Garde! the perfect ruleset for gamers who want something a bit different from the norm.

This Team Yankee Box includes three resin and metal 2S1 Gvozdika ('Carnation') 122mm Self-propelled Howitzers and one Unit Card. The 2S1 Carnation is a Soviet 122-mm self-propelled 2A18 howitzer.
The 2S1 is fully amphibious with very little preparation, and once afloat is propelled by its tracks. A variety of wider tracks are also available to allow the 2S1 to operate in snow or swamp conditions. The interior is separated into a driver's compartment on the left, an engine compartment on the right and a fighting compartment to the rear.
This Team Yankee Box includes three resin and metal BM-21 Hail Rocket Launcher trucks and one Unit Card.
The BM-21 Grad (Hail) is a direct descendant for the famous Katyusha rocket launcher of the Second World War. The box launcher, housing four rows of ten tubes, is mounted on a Ural 6x6 truck. The BM-21 can fire fin-stabilised 122mm rockets, which can be fitted with fragmentation, chemical, or incendiary warheads, up to 16km (10 miles). A single volley from a BM-21 battalion of 18 launchers fires 720 rounds in 20 seconds, the equivalent of five division’s worth of guns firing together. Clearly, the 'Hail' is well named.
This Team Yankee Box includes five plastic T-72 tanks, one plastic tank commander sprue, one Decal Sheet, three Unit Cards.
Following the classic Soviet doctrine, the T-72 was easy to manufacture, simple to use, robust, and reliable. It mounted a powerful 125mm gun with an autoloader to replace the loader, producing a compact and relatively light tank with a significantly greater level of armour protection, powered by a reliable, tried and tested engine.
Zombies are the rotting, shambling corpses of the recently dead; plucked from their rightful rest by the foul machinations of necromancy. Mindless, drive only by the need to feed, these awful creatures are found in all undead hordes, unleashed to destroy and dismember by their dark masters.
The Zombie sprues contain enough parts to build three figures - or, if you're really clever, you can even build four! These fully pose-able plastic sprues comes with lots of conversion parts, and includes enough pieces to let you make figures with just shambling legs, and others dragging themselves across the ground.
This set Contains:
