It has been a while since we last heard from Victoria Miniatures, but now they are kicking off 2016 with a slew of new accessory pieces to kit up your miniatures with.
First, we have two new guns to fill the enemy with lead with.
The Bren gun was well known as the primary light machine gun of the British and Commonwealth forces in WWII and was in use in various forms until the 1990′s. This new accessory looks like it could be a bit of a delicate sculpt, but its iconic appearance will suit both modern war and pulp scifi settings well.
The Lewis was produced in WWI and is easily recognisable due to its rounded barrel. While it was replaced by the Bren, it still saw use in WWII, primarily with the Home Guard.
Of course, if you don’t want to shoot, you can always get up close and personal with these new axes.
These brutal Scalptaker Chain Axes definitely look like they could get the job done. They aren’t as flamboyant as a lot of these weapon accessories tend to be, and instead look a bit more workmanlike. Well, as workmanlike as a whirring axe blade of death can be.
While all these weapons are important, Victoria have also released another equally vital accessory. After all, all this fire power is useless if your transport gets a flat and you can’t get to the fight.
This APC Spare Wheel is a nice touch that makes the model look a bit more real and will serve to break up large, flat panel areas.
All in all, this is a pretty good showing from Victoria. The weapons accessories are all very well designed and could fit with a number of settings if used creatively. Hopefully, we will see more from them in the near future.
Do you prefer the look of the Lewis or the Bren gun? What do you think of the axes and spare wheels?
