A little while back I painted up some Rebel Miniatures Corporate Infantry which I was quite pleased with. Continuing the theme are these fellows from Ground Zero Games.
As anyone vaguely paying attention to my likes and dislikes, I’m a big fan of ‘character’ models so these miniatures fit the bill very nicely indeed. Continue reading GZG Corporate Japanese Reinforcements arrive. The beheading begins!
Whilst on a bit of a terrain spree at the moment I thought I’d balance up the Fantasy with some Sci Fi images.
TopoSolitario.com is a website that I’ve visited many times over the last few years. I admire both Marcos Hidalgo’s talent and generosity in making feely available some very very nice paper-based terrain goodies. Kudos to you. Continue reading Sci Fi Terrain vibe
Another batch of miniatures that waited a good while before I decided what to do with them colour wise. Great miniatures with dynamic poses that remind me a lot of the Iron Man we see at the beginning of the first Downey movie – ie the prototype made out of scrap.
I’d been reading a bit about various alternative WWIIs and such like and thought I’d go with a German theme. The insignia is a bit of a give away but I quite like the gun colouring which is a nod to the colour scheme I remember painting on German aircraft, specifically a Messerschmitt 109, as a boy.

In a similar vein to my last post, these fellas are also by PF. Quite obvious by the detailing and style. They are from two different packs available from CP Models – SB1501 Assault bots (one of four shown, centre of first pic) and SB1502 Alien bot (one per pack – I bought two and with a bit of chopping got two pretty good poses).
If the colour scheme doesn’t give it away, I see them as a law enforcement trio, with the SB1501 being the lead officer (or should that be command droid?)
PF (I don’t know if he’d want me to share his full name) is an extremely talented miniature sculptor from France who has done work for quite a range manufacturers. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m a big fan. There is a lot to like about his style, both aesthetically and technically.
The left and right miniatures are from Brigade Models “Alien Bounty Hunters” pack and the centre guy is from CP Models “Robots” pack.
I’ve still a lot of PF miniatures to paint up but here are links to a few already done.
I think you’ll agree that you can see a distinct theme in his style which is perfect for my vision of Space Opera or even Infinity in 15mm…
The Lazy One’s 3D Printed 15mm Scif Fi Robots via Shapeways
Okay. I have my reservations on this one.
I’m always interested in new ways to do old things. 3d printing is one of those things that is becoming increasing accessible and affordable. Clearly to miniature collectors and gamers it’s a no-brainer that it could open up a world of possibilities.
I’ve occasionally perused the vaults of Shapeways and have been intrigued by the innovation of some folk. I had never really seen anything however that I was prepared to take a punt on until I came across these fellas. (This is the set I bought.)
More of their history can be found here on Lead Adventures forums so I won’t go into that here.
My opinion after physically receiving a set of these guys? Continue reading First Impressions: 15mm 3D Printed Miniatures
