Monkeying around on the fringes of space: 15mm Monkey Gang from Highlander

Highlander Studio’s in the States produce a number of interesting, not-available-elsewhere, miniatures and all to a very high standard. As soon as I spotted these monkey-boys I had to have them.


Not only do they slot in well as proxies for a 2000AD/Mega City One type of game (Judges are here) but they make a great space pirate/rogue group for Space Opera that can go up against their other genetically enhanced earth-based beast – so far painted Felids (cats) from Critical Mass and Bears from Khurasan. In the paint queue are dogs (CrtiMass and Traveller GW) and Rhinos from Khurasan.

They’d also go well as a gang for post-apocalyptic settings where genetic mutations were the norm. An area I’ve been drawn to for a long time but chat on the Fool’s Daily podcast has got my interest kindled again. Bought Across the Dead Earth recently which looks pretty good. (I know there was a reason I built that shanty town terrain…)

  1. Brilliant stuff, Jimboba. My first thought when I saw them was they’d be just right alongside your Judges.

    I too bought “Across The Dead Earth” a while ago which read up nicely, but I’m just short of time and the right miniatures to play. Another project to put in the back pantry.

  2. Thanks Sam. Yup, that was my thinking too. And ditto; my pantry is chock full as your will be too. I’d love to arrange a game tho (of anything). I really need to break this total absence of actual gaming.
