Steve Dean paints up classic 15mm Tabletop Dungeon Party

Earlier this month I put up a short article about the fine figure painter Steve Dean and his work on our HOT104 Anti-Paladins, which you can see on our blog HERE if you missed it. I have two more images on file here from last year that slipped my notice which are also by Mr Dean so I thought I would share these with you now as they are really good. You can visit his forum from where the images are taken HERE or read on for more information.


The classic 15mm Tabletop fantasy range has a lot of miniatures and monsters among its codes and while we have not as yet completed the re-release of all of them we have the majority of the codes online. Among the most popular are the Humans which include twenty five different poses all well suited to Dungeon Quest, RPG and character driven skirmish. Featuring Barbarians, Wizards, Females, Rogues, Bard, Paladins and many more you can see them all HERE on a specified search on the Tabletop page. Great for any system. 


Steve Dean has worked his magic on a selection of the Tabletop Humans taken from codes 501, 505 and 510. All of these can be had as single miniatures from our pages or as packs. However the most popular option is our great value saver skirmish packs which contain one of every pose plus some extra with a 10% saving. We have FST02 TTF Human Skirmish Pack and FST03 MDA Human Skirmish Pack. Below is our image of FST03. 


15mm.co.uk has put a lot of effort into bringing back not only Laserburn but also the Tabletop Fantasy range and the Tabletop Historicals too and we are really pleased that wargamers both experienced and new to this great pastime have sent us messages thanking us. Sure we want to make a reasonable living but we also want to keep the soul of wargaming intact too. 

Well done Steve and thanks for such excellent paint work!

Steve Dean paints up HOT104 Anti-Paladins

That master of the fine brush Mr Steve Dean has painted up miniatures from one of 15mm.co.uk's newest packs in the HOT 15mm Fantasy range those being the Anti-Paladins warriors of the dark or evil overlords. He does fantastic work and you can see the original images on his website HERE. Read on for more or go HERE to see HOT104 on our website. 


I have also put up the single figure images taken from Steve's excellent website. Here they are: 





"We rode north as one. A thousand Men sworn by the mother church to defend the lands against the darkness and perversion that threatened us. Little did we know that the darkness lingers not deep from the surface in some Men. As we rode the voices whispers and shadows lucked in the forests and soon one then another and another fell away until when we came to the snow line there were but four hundred left and we had seen no foe. It was then our faith was splintered as ahead we saw our brother knights but they were not as they had been. Twisted and filled with the bane of life they were now of the darkness. Evil is all the more when once it was good." 

This is a popular 15mm scale pack and we have plans to expand it in the future. As with all the other infantry codes in the range you can choose HOT104 as a pack with sixteen miniatures, three packs saving 10% off the price and lastly as a 'sampler' which contains one of each pose from the pack which is ideal for RPG or skirmishing in 15mm scale. Go HERE

Well done Steve and thanks!

War in a Box Blog paints up HOT 15mm Skeleton Spears and Guard

It has been a mega month for spotting the great miniatures and more from 15mm.co.uk on the blogs and projects of wargamers all over the world. It is my intention this month to show as many of these as I can to you. Some are science fiction articles but many are fantasy articles and this suits since we are in the process of re-mastering some of our classic 15mm monsters into new life in resin. If you missed that news you can read it HERE on our blog. I was kindly given permission to link up to the War in a Box blog which is a great resource for wargamers on a budget. 



You can see the original blog post titled 'A Little Something from the Closet' HERE and above the images of our 15mm HOT Undead miniatures. These figures are taken from the HOT 15mm Fantasy Range from packs HOT41 Skeleton Spears and HOT99 Skeleton Eternal Guard. Both popular packs of 16 mixed miniatures. Go to the page on this link to see all of our Undead HERE as we have many more. As well as packs we also offer a fantastic option of the 'sampler' on each code where you can choose to purchase one of each pose in the pack which is ideal for dungeon crawl and small scale skirmish with characters. 

It is well worth looking through the War in a Box blog at the many interesting updates where 'Warren' outlines his campaign and shows his painting and growing collection.  He has Tabletop Barbarians, Wizards and Pack Horses as well as much more there. I am a regular visitor to the pages myself. 

Thanks and well done War in a Box!

Warchest Blog paints up SHM Alien Characters

Jimboba is a fellow Scotsman who like this Scotsman really loves 15mm science fiction wargaming. Recently he posted images of some of his collection of 15mm alien characters and I asked him if it would be cool for me to feature his SHM Range aliens on our blog.  He agreed and indeed sent some more specially taken pictures (in the real world he is a talented graphic designer) for us to use.  You can see them below.  You can also see the original blog post on Warchest HERE from which these characters and their stories are taken.




If you like the look of these 15mm aliens which are excellent for any set of rules or setting you can see them all at the SHM 15mm Science Fiction Range on the website.  They are from left to right: SHM31 Baroka Crimelord, SHM50 Razak Bouncer, SHM66 Skorath Mercenary and SHM30 Gizbin Mercenary.  These are all miniatures designed by Eli Arndt.

Good job Jimboba!

Classic Tabletop and HOT monsters withdrawn for now

A quick bulletin from the team here at 15mm.co.uk to let all you 15mm fantasy wargaming fans out there know about our plan for September 2016.  We have withdrawn some classic Tabletop Miniatures and HOT Fantasy monsters from our ranges for now with the intention of returning them to the ranges after a change.  The change...they will be in resin!  


Yes.  We have taken the decision to put several monsters into resin and we will be re-releasing them in the middle of September 2016 with a special offer which will last two weeks until the end of the month.  We have make this decision for several reasons including ease of assembly for the larger monster kits and weight too.  It also means we will be able to keep the pricing the same and even reduce the price on several of them.  Cool!  Here is the list of codes removed for this rejuvenation.


566 Rhinosaur with Howdah
567 Rhinosaur

Two classic codes from the very dawn of modern wargaming which pre-date Citadel and are from the earliest of the 1980's.  The Rhinosaur is a monster in its own right and it is also a war beast for use with Lizardmen or other evil troops.  These monsters were white metal and will now be resin and reduced in price.

HOT7 Giant
HOT30 War Elephant with Howdah
HOT31 War Mammoth  with Howdah
HOT37 Destroyer of Hope Grand Dragon 

Four codes from the earlier part of the huge HOT 15mm Fantasy Range which now has more than one hundred different packs.  The classic HOT7 Giant which is a perennial favourite in HOTT and other armies all over the place.  After going out of production the HOT30 War Elephant and HOT31 War Mammoth will now be resin and reduced in price and both come as a kit including a small howdah into which a character or general can be put. Lastly a kit which has been out of production and off our website for two entire years!  The mighty HOT37 Destroyer of Hope Grand Dragon which is by far the largest monster in the range and makes a superb centre piece. It will now be in resin rather than metal and will be know as the 'Destroyer' rather than the 'Swallower' as it used to be known (we have made a few changes so it is, unlike the others, a new model).

We will post up the re-release and the special offer in about two weeks time.  We are making the molds now.....

Thanks for Reading.
