15mm Sci-fi bonanza. Out of this World Bounty Hunters.

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.

15mm Bounty Hunters from Critical Mass Games

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.

More on the way. The recon truck is a touched up Hotwheels. Took 60 seconds that one.

15mm Sci-fi bonanza. Motley Crew.

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?

Sold as a set by Khurasan. The vehicle in the back is a repaint of a toy I picked up ages ago. Part of a set that was contained in a fold out planet. I can’t recall the make or range. Googled it!

15mm Sci-fi bonanza. Movie Stars.

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.

Cheap terrain option

I’ve not said much about making terrain before now becuase it’s only something I dabble in. I know guys and seen stuff that far surpasses anything I can (be bothered to) produce.

Anyway, digging around some old boxes (you know the ones, stuffed full of miniatures, models, games and terrain that you promised you’d find a use for some day) I came across this Construction set – Constructo Plastic! It’s so long ago but I think I picked it up at a flea market for 50 pence or something. Looks like it could pre-date Lego.
