15mm Fantasy Houses and Hovels.......

.....from Alternative Armies!Got these sent to me by a friend earlier in the year but they had remained on the resin pile for quite a while but my friend Daniel who is a big Star Wars Legion fan and who was in a painting slump at the time, so I ended up painting a Fleet Trooper unit for him earlier this year and recently he was looking for a drastic change in his painting queue and hey presto I got these done.......They are from Alternative Armies and could be used for other periods as well as Fantasy.........I like his painting skill (he's a damn good painter) and it gives a boost to a little painting slump or lethargy!Figure is a 15mm Battle Valor villager for scale help, picture quality is the usual clusterfeck.....Nicely done Daniel, he may need more drastic changes in his painting queue........Do they require basing?The Legion fleet troopers in question.........

Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures

You can't have a science fiction range of this nature without at least one heavily augmented robot or cyborg type and this one fits the bill. Rather than shiny chrome and helpful demeanour, this individual looks more than a little menacing. [...] The post Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Goblin Knights or Armoured Trolls for Dragon Rampant and over 2,000,000 hits........

......too!!!!!!!!9 Goblin Knights from Alternative Armies, 28mm scale (actually 22mm scale) but being used for 15mm scale as mercenary armoured trolls for Dragon Rampant etc.......A few issues with sculpting but nothing major, I would have an army of these if they were 15mm, remind me a little bit of some of the bad guys in conan the barbarian? Also 2,000,00 hits milestone has been reached even with the last few years been very hit and miss with posts but onward and upwards from a caravan in Ireland.......Did some scale pics with 15mm copplestone castings to give some idea of size..............and I started my blog before Ray all those years ago!!!!!!!

New 15mm Gangers at Alternative Armies

“Like minded individuals often gather together for mutual defence of themselves and their turf. It's a strategy that humanity has employed from the early days of recorded history to the industrial work gangs in the mega cities of earth and Alpha Centuari. However colonial gangs are more often than not the first line of defence in case of siege and invasion as they are farmers and families who have gathered together to protect their holdings and claims from aggression. Once a colony has developed beyond a few small farms and a port is established, the gangs still exist, levying control on areas they claimed at the start of the landing. However other inhabitants may take offense to this and start their own gangs to take back these holdings. At other times they are sprung up from perpetually bored teenagers with little common sense and an eye for violence. On occasion they may even become notorious criminals or just a more militant version of the Planet Defence Forces. Their colours are as numerous

15mm Sci-Fi Paramilitary Police....

.....and Medical Support! Post-Brexit force someone said?Another submission to the challenge (146 points), the figures are from Alternative Armies and the 5 police resin figures are in my top 10 favourite sci-fi figures (a little flawed but the two foot rule negates this) but on the other hand the medical synthetic's are more flawed but still usable due to medical crosses sculpted on them!These guys are willing to sort out any minor planetary disputes over natural resources your local government might have for a large fee or small percentage.....The vehicles are metal GZG plus body bags from The Scene!Cyber Mastiffs or Robo Land Sharks.....Medical Synthetics.......The Aircars............Bikers.......The girls and guys of Black Water contractor security....Even did a head swap.......
