I recently found out that one of my work colleagues was nuts about wargaming, even more than me. How could he resist epic scale gaming with big Mechanica. There has also been several additions to the Vanguard Miniatures 3mm and 6mm ranges with the miniatures from the successful crowd funder campaign now available via the store. There has been an explosion in the amount of 15mm miniatures released recently by new companies and old. A lot utilizing 3d computer design certainly for vehicles and to a lesser extent carbon forms.

I have been battling over which scale to collect when I eventually return to Fantasy mass battles and if I will go down the LOTR route of Warhammer fluff. If I had the money and the more importantly the space it would be 28mm LOTR as there are some beautiful not Games Workshop miniatures out there. So basically that leaves 6, 10 or 15mm, all have some great miniature ranges but unfortunately not what I can say is a complete range for either of my two projects.

10mm City Blocks/Modern/Sci-Fi

For 6mm there is Microworld Miniatures in the US which has an ever expanding range with some excellent miniatures, especially their recent Goblins and Ratkins. They also have an upcoming High Elf line which looks very promising. Do I want to recreate that again?

Not only Third Age but the Epic battles of the Silmarillion. There are plenty of miniatures around, both historical and Fantasy that can be used, but for the look and the feel for me anyway the best High Elves are the Games Workshop Warmaster range. Unfortunately I only have a few of these left and those available on ebay are either too expensive or of poor quality. Over the years I have dabbled in 15mm Fantasy but I must admit this scale has a dearth of good quality miniatures. I did stumble across a great Undead range from Magister Militum and collected a lovely army pictured below.

Khurasan have a Beastman range in the pipeline which I am getting rather excited about. Ever since my early days collecting a Beastman Army for WH Fantasy Battles I have always wanted to collect another n the smaller scales. I must mention Battle Valor games who appeared a few years ago releasing a large and expanding range of 15mm Fantasy.

These are geared towards their own fluff which is fine and they have quite a few creative miniatures. I bought a selection of Undead which are the best I have seen recently and will go extremely well with the Magister Militum miniatures.

15mm HOF Science Fiction Range

I also got a selection of their Elves as they fit my image of High Elves. I know there is a fair amount of praise for these miniatures but other than the Undead I am not convinced. They are also cast in very soft pliable alloy, which is good in some ways, but lead to breakages and bent weapons etc. Also more could have been done with differing horse poses.

I took a look at some of the new 3D designed 6mm sci fi armour from Brigade Models. Anyone for Dirtside? Anyway lets get back on track. The show was originally scheduled for the first week in March but due to significant snow fall it was cancelled at the last minute and rescheduled for 28th April.

Plans started taking shape just after Christmas and were just about ready by the end of February. The rescheduling did give some breathing space for some much needed play-testing of the rules. Dominion Wars Setup Video. The doors opened at Once everyone had done the initial tour of games and traders the table started getting interest with the first game kicking off around Luckily my helper for the day Richard Laking arrived in time so we could alternate between running the game and answering questions from interested on lookers.

Managing two full games we received positive feedback from all, enjoying the quick play mechanics together with gamer interaction.

And of course much admiration for the miniatures. We even had a visit from the Terrain Tutor you can check out his video on the side bar our table is at minutes.Really nice modeling work, Norm. Your post makes my creative juices start to warm up.

Really nice work there, sir. Cheers Roger. Jay, I think you would enjoy the freedom of tinkering with a sci-fi system, while having the sort of game space 8 x 6 grid that we both appreciate.

Roger, I agree, the walkers could be better and are slightly awkward to assemble because the top half is slightly off balance from the legs, you need a fairly fast drying glue, once the two pieces are locked together they are fine. I had recently bought some Games Workshop Cadians to experiment with doing a similar project in 28mm, but I think the small scale works better for me and it pushes the game up one level from strictly skirmish, while keeping the table small.

I enjoyed your blog - and think you may end up painting your son's Aliens In the time you have acquired the figures and painted them i have Very jealous. They have come up really well.

The whole way through I was thinking what rules were you going to use. I should have known - your own :- Duh! Hi Shaun, I am quite pleased with how the rules are working out, a lot of little nuances cropping up on the battlefield - though the 'busy' nature of city terrain helps that. This must be the fasted project that I have done from purchase to play, which is good for keeping the motivation going. Very nice work. I've never seen Pendraken 10mm figures up close, but I may have to now that I've seen what you have accomplished.

Damn--I've got to quit reading blogs like yours--too inspirational. Like I need another project!

Best regards, Chris Johnson. Hi Chris, thanks for commenting. The good thing about this particular project was that for a new 'thing' it was relatively cheap and fast to put together. Due to the vehicles and 'large' aliens - this looks less like a 10mm game than some other periods would look.

Good to get a lot of game into such a compact area though. Wednesday, 15 July Building Sci-Fi forces in 10mm. One being a Marine army and the other looking suitably Alien. Marine Dreadnought The armies are relatively small, cheap and paint up really quickly, so make the ideal starter project that is more likely to be seen through to a conclusion.

The rest of this post looks at how the armies were put together, with a few shots of them in action. Having taken a year to get the basis of my 12mm ACW force up and running and having two 10mm napoleonic armies next in the queue, I fancied a fast and fun distraction project.

Two Sci-fi armies from Pendraken fitted the bill perfectly for some small table action. What surprised me most was that I had this stuff all ready for gaming within ten days.

I also had a single bag of 5 Alien creatures that I had previously added to my pre-order list for the Phalanx wargame show, as I had wanted to assess the figures anyway for a project - it just so happened that on the day I also went ahead and bought the army packs as an impulse buy. Pendraken do a good selection of MDF bases, so a few of them were added to the purchase to supplement my growing stash of wood.

In the future I might buy a few individual bags of kit to 'grow' my forces, but there is plenty enough here to get some good gaming done. The first job was to clean up the figures and glue the heavier pieces to their bases ready for priming. These are fairly weighty models.This is as near to an exhaustive list as I can provide.

The comments about each range are of course just my opinion. Please form your own by visiting these excellent sites!

Their models, particularly those of Loud Ninja, are what got me interested in 15mm sci-fi to begin with. Definitely a must-visit site. A large range of near future communist bloc inspired human infantry and vehicles, including many APCs and specialised wheeled vehicles and a VTOL. A small range of very clean looking futuristic ground vehicles including a Nolan Batmobile style ADV, and a Shirow inspired spider mech. The Martin Empires line, referred to as 18mm scale, are nonetheless in line with some 15mm miniatures.

They are a combination of Victorian tech, steampunk, Burroughs inspired martians, and Wells inspired cephalopods. A good range of slightly old fashioned but very characterful figures, and some clean, sharp looking hovertanks and bipedal walker mechs. A nice range of sci-fi infantry, especially Dwarf and Goblinoid themed ones.

The Warp Renegades selection could also make some good mutants or otherworldly cultists. Has a small selection of vehicles too. I think if you want to proxy some 40k Squat at 15mm this would be an especially good port of call. A very impressive and very large range of future human forces based on current earth nations; both infantry and vehicles. Mostly APCs and tanks with one or two combat walkers. They also have some excellent terrain and accessories.

They also have some ewok style little furry alien natives. Overall an excellent and very well regarded supplier in the community — definitely check them out.

Definitely one of the big ones, CMG has four forces one human, three very much alien with many vehicles and figures for each.Sorry - only verified members can start new topics on the forum.
