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.
No not the rock band but this mishmash of spacefarers. I believe the centre 3 are inspired by a cultish westernised tv show but cannot see the origins of the big guy or the bot. Any suggestions?
Khurasan strikes again with some inspired models. The second and third images are sculpts by Tom Meier and are some of the finest (in both senses of the word) 15mm sculpts and casts I’ve ever seen.
Once again, Khurasan inspires with a doomed crew. I’ll be the one in the middle!
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.
