If you are going to have a world full of riffraff, mutants, raiders and mercenaries you need some tough police force. Look no further than MegaCity’s finest. Classic miniatures still available. (I owned some of these decades ago and must have passed them on. These I picked up at this years Carronade at the bring and buy – serious stripping and repaint needed – recently placed an order for a couple of bike officers – can’t help myself…)
Vehicles are Hotwheel repaints. I realise the paint scheme doesn’t tie in with the law officers but I came across it during a Google research and liked it. So borrowed it.
You’ll all think me a Khurasan fan-boy as here are some more. I am, but equally a fan-boy of many other creatives too. It’s just the way they’ve been picked up to paint. These are more military than the others. I’d read on a blog how tricky urban camouflage was to pull off at 15mm so had to have a bash. I’m very happy with the result. The first squad are identified by their ‘NATO’ helmets. The mech is a straight up BattleMech and the transport a repaint Hotwheels which I’ve seen many gamers use – because it’s really good!
I’ll be honest. I keep getting Critical Mass, Ground Zero and Khurasan mixed up sometimes. All offer such good ranges and I bought a bunch from all three at the same time…
Here are the Khurasan guys.
Two shots of Ground Zero Games mercs/bounty hunters/interstellar riff-raff. Thanks to PF for correcting me here. These chaps are available from Critical Mass Games, not GZG. PF should know, as he sculpted these amazing miniatures! You should check out PF’s site. It is full of 15mm Sci Fi goodness. HERE.
More on the way. The recon truck is a touched up Hotwheels. Took 60 seconds that one.
As I said in an earlier post, I’ve been re-bitten by the sci-fi bug. And, despite having plenty of miniatures (and terrain) of a futuristic nature in 28mm (and 6mm) I decided to go down the 15mm path instead (part of my rationale justified this by the fact that I had ditched my 28mm fantasy for 15mm so why not sci-fi too). I also blame the likes of Khurasan Miniatures who seem to be at the forefront of a 15mm renaissance at the moment. For me, they do for sci-fi what Demonworld and Splintered Light does for fantasy in 15mm.
Anyway, in a bid to try and master miniature photography (failed) here is a series of posts of recent acquisitions and paint jobs. Curses on all the manufacturers represented here for producing such good stuff.
Mostly Khurasan here. The movie stars; a robotic cop, a red demonoid and an archaeologist dressed for the gym. The liquid robot is from 15mm.co.uk.
