Book 1 of Huzzah! has been updated and is now at version 1.11. Huzzah! is Oozlum Games’ set of free tactical Napoleonic wargames rules. Book 1 is the main rules book. The update is likely to be the last made to the free edition of these rules.
The updated version is available from the Huzzah! page on the Oozlum Games website at www.oozlumgames.co.uk.
The update includes clarifications on skirmisher superiority (the 5cm increase is not cumulative from turn to turn), and on multiple orders to units and commands (makes it clearer that this is possible). The update also changes the rules about attached officers and orders to units to which they are attached.
Shadowforge Miniatures has released Female Gangers, Bounty Hunters and Scavengers for its 28mm Sci-Fi line. These figures are in stock and available now in the Fighting 15s shop, priced GBP8.00 for a pack of four.

1SCM146 Female Gangers pack 2

Packs in the 1:600 (3mm) ranges are GBP2.35 each, and the 15mm Lithuanians are GBP10.00. These prices will be inclusive of VAT when the tax is applied to our prices on 1 October.
From 1 October prices of the 1:600 packs are therefore GBP2.00 plus VAT (large packs in the range are GBP4.00 plus VAT). Customers outside the European Union (who do not pay VAT) will therefore see the prices of Oddzial Osmy figures drop from 1 October – good news for our customers in the US.
