It is not really an issue with brigadier itself but today when you try to download 9,1 or 9,2 MacBookPro drivers it fails. The problem seems to come from Apple servers because http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/11/05/041-0925/g27es04pw9re5ggrfp3vuf8ew6r53asfz8/041-0925.English.dist is empty
Created a quick small list of current available bootcamp drivers with some details http://pastebin.com/29viXEAv
It's working for me here:
curl -I http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/11/05/041-0925/g27es04pw9re5ggrfp3vuf8ew6r53asfz8/041-0925.English.dist
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Since we only use the dist file for parsing the models, and we know thanks to Reposado that this is sometimes an ongoing problem, I'll look at a workaround that would try other dist files if there's a problem with English.dist.
URL reports 200 from here too. Just that the file is blank.
curl -O http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/11/05/041-0925/g27es04pw9re5ggrfp3vuf8ew6r53asfz8/041-0925.English.dist

Actually, Boot Camp ESD packages all have only English distribution files. So, if your CDN happens to be serving a dumb file, we can't fall back to another language. The most we can do is log that we couldn't parse it, and hope we find the model in another .dist file.
I haven't tested it with brigadier yet but today the support for MacBook Pro 9,1 and 9,2 shows here
