I’ve more recently gone back over my collection with a view to plug some gaps – that might be a troop type for an army or in this case, expanding upon existing units so that their numbers tie in with the likes of Dragon Rampant unit sizes.
So, some fairly generic Undead Archers. Mostly from Alternative Armies, a few Splintered Light or Khurasan and some from, I think, TSR Battle Systems.
I gave up! I was trying to re-identify these miniatures, being sure they were from Khurasan Miniatures, but couldn’t find them on what can only be described as an archaic website. (Confirmed location and name thanks to 15mm Sci Fi Gaming group on Facebook – they are Khurasan, Brunt Herd Mercenaries found under the Cult of Andromeda.)
Anyway, these two Rhino ‘aliens/mutants’ would be great for any science fiction setting or a post-apocalyptic game. The accompanying human is a random chap I decided to paint up with the same colour palette at the same time. I think he is Alternative Armies/Laserburn… getting old. (Also confirmed, part of the Asgard range.)
Recent painting has primarily been focussed on fantasy and/or ploughing through several of the big miniature boardgames acquired via Kickstarter over the last few years. However my fondness for 15mm sci-fi remains as does my appreciation for the work of PF.
Several years ago I made it a bit of a mission to collect up 15mm sci-fi that PF has sculpted – no mean feat as he has worked for various manufacturers over the years in the US, UK and elsewhere. At the time I managed to hunt down most of the available offerings but have not as yet managed to complete them all.
Anyone that has dabbled in 15mm fantasy miniatures in recent years will be aware of the splendid barbarians produced by the excellent Mark Copplestone. Alongside the rather larger Demonworld range, these are easily amongst my favourite miniatures. Indeed, one of my earliest posts to this blog was inspired by a round of painting some of these up.
Little point of note – it has come to my attention that Angel Barracks who formerly produce some very fine 6mm stuff has turned his attention to 15mm Conan and has started to create an impressive range. Should that be your area of interest I suggest you pay him a visit. I will be at some point when painting queue permits. Crom’s Anvil.
Hope they provide a source of inspiration for your 15mm Conan gaming or Barbarian Hordes.
