15mm Sci Fi Command Hover APC

Posted on June 27th, 2017 under . Posted by

This is the GZG open topped command hover APC that I will be using for my mechanised platoon commander’s runabout, rather than the enclosed command APC that will be used by the platoon command squad. I’ve only added one of the three guns provided in th…

15mm Sci Fi Infantry Webbing

Posted on June 26th, 2017 under . Posted by

It’s on to the webbing now, with a three stage Foundry Rawhide layering approach to bring out the detail a bit more than a simple dry brush and wash. This took a bit of time but I think it was worth it to contrast with the basecoat. I’ll tackle the wea…

15mm Sci Fi Infantry Basecoat

Posted on June 25th, 2017 under . Posted by

I’ve started the painting today with a basecoat dry brush of Foundry Moss in three stages, followed by an overall wash in GW Athonian Camoshade ink. It all looks a bit horrible in close up but not so bad when at arms length. I will block in the weapons…

15mm Sci Fi on the workbench

Posted on June 24th, 2017 under . Posted by

I have now completed the assembly and undercoating on pretty much everything, ready for painting over the next two or three weeks, give or take one or two minor additions and extras. I’m really pleased with the overall make up of the mechanised platoon…

X29 Blockhead Battlesuits

Posted on June 24th, 2017 under . Posted by

I’ve had second thoughts about using the GZG US power armour figures as a heavy assault squad, although I may put one squad together just to see what they look like before I decide. While browsing TMP yesterday I noticed that the Critical Mass sci-fi r…

15mm Sci Fi Hardsuit Specialists

Posted on June 23rd, 2017 under . Posted by

I’ve been trying to squeeze the last drops out of the GZG figure packs that I have been using for the 15mm sci-fi project. The obvious way to do this was to pair up some of the leftover figures to make specialist bases on two pence coins. So, I no…

Sci Fi Scenario Generator

Posted on June 23rd, 2017 under . Posted by

I thought this might be useful when planning ahead for 15mm sci-fi platoon level gaming and, as usual with Nordic Weasel material, it delivers exactly what it says on the cover. There is a scenario and campaign generating system in No Stars in Sight al…

Massive Atomic Corporation

Posted on June 21st, 2017 under . Posted by

For want of a better idea, I’ve decided that my 15mm hard suit mechanised platoon will be a unit of a corporate army, tasked with asset protection, counter-insurgency and resource acquisition on the fringes of the Gruntz heliosphere. I really like the …

15mm Sci Fi Hardsuit AT Squad

Posted on June 20th, 2017 under . Posted by

I’ve been a bit busy over the last couple of days, mainly with the sprog’s cricket fixtures. so this is all I’ve managed to add to the 15mm Sci-Fi mechanised platoon. This is the eight man AT squad including two attached AT launchers, five riflemen and…

15mm Sci-Fi Hard Suit Infantry

I started cleaning up and basing the GZG Cyclops hard suit figures into squads for my mechanised platoon this afternoon. This was quite enjoyable despite the heat and I whistled through two rifle squads and have started on the AT squad. I have now run …

15mm Sci-Fi Armour

15mm Sci Fi Mechanised Platoon ToE

I’ve worked out the ToE for my 15mm sci-fi platoon, which I think will be a corporate army of some sort to fit with the background in Gruntz, for want of a better idea. There are several corporate factions in the Gruntz ‘heliosphere’ campaign setting i…

Heavy Hover Tank Two

Posted on June 14th, 2017 under . Posted by

I grabbed an hour or so this evening to assemble the second Brigade Models Sohei heavy hover tank for my 15mm sci-fi project. This is a multi-part resin and metal kit, so there was quite a lot of preparation to do including sanding, drilling and pinnin…
