Adventure Terrain

Brigade Models

So I am constantly on the lookout for new bugs with which to torment the puny humans of Earth. Cruising around TMP I found Brigade’s 15mm Bug Vehicles




The Lygan Salvo bug, lacked a picture but seemed like a good choice for a shooter even bigger than the Surpa Major



I ordered a batch of these

They come as a five part kit. A top and bottom of resin and three pewter orifices. I decided to leave two off and only put on the center one. I’ll probably paint the outer two as eyes.

These retail for 5.50 pounds plus postage. In 15mm these guys are honking huge! Look out British tanks and flyers!


Very nicely down, these will make perfect supra supra major shooters-although they certainly won’t be moving anywhere fast!
