Loud Ninja Games Chuhuac in Blue

The excellent space raptor range by Loud Ninja Games has sold many thousands across the world and I always look forward to spotting some examples of the Chuhuac painted up in schemes other than the official ones.

Mad Mecha Guy is the chap to whom these fetching in blue 15mm miniatures belong.  The pictures depict poses from RAP001, RAP002, RAP003 and RAP004.  Below you can see an example of the white armour scheme from the website.  The difference is quite striking and the space raptors look very nice painted up in blue.  Well done MMG!

Expanding the Undead in HOT 15mm Fantasy – Bows and Spears

“Come on chaps!  I loved those Trolls and the Tabletop re-releases are all great too but I want more stuff in the HOT range.  How about some skeletons?!”

Back in the summer of this year asked hundreds of its customers what they would like to see as the next expansion of packs in the superb HOT 15mm Fantasy Range.  There was an acre of feedback and it was tough to separate the leading requests by their popularity but in the end the subject that topped the table was The Undead.  The rattling of bones and the leering grin of a skeletal skull.  This was the stuff of new wargamers dreams for 15mm Fantasy as the comment at the top taken from the survey demonstrates.

As a result of this we have created several new pack codes expanding the Undead in the range but also altering existing codes in the range to improve them.  The project is in several parts but I am concerned here with this first part which we will see on the website and with our stockists soon.  This first part expands existing codes as follows:

HOT40 Skeleton Missile Troops    (16 Miniatures)
The current HOT40 is being up gunned with additional skeleton missile troops.  These poses add to the original skeleton archer in the pack.  Added poses are another three archers in varied stances and two poses of skeleton with crossbows.  This makes a new total of six poses in HOT40.  Dressed in a mix of armour pieces and clothing they will suit most settings from classic fantasy to dungeoneering and medieval fantasy crossovers too.

HOT41 Skeleton Spears (16 Miniatures)
The current HOT41 is being 'fleshed out' with additional spear toting skeleton troops.  These new poses add to the original two skeleton spearmen in the pack.  Added poses are another two skeletons in armour and clothing with spears.  This makes a new total of four poses in HOT41.  They fit in well with the rest of the HOT Undead Range of packs and will suit the same settings as HOT40 for example.
As with the rest of the HOT 15mm Fantasy Range we will be offering the purchase choices of a single pack or three packs with a ten percent saving or a sampler with one of each pose in the pack (great for skirmishing or dungeon crawling) all at great prices. Suitable for any 15mm Fantasy wargame rules system from HOTT 2nd Edition to Age of Might and Steel and others such as Song of Blades and Heroes.

We begin the releases on Monday 30th of October 2014 with these two codes.

If you are a keen wargamer who plays the Undead in 15mm scale then there is already a lot to see in the HOT range.  Here are the current codes:

HOT12 Ghoul, Wraith and Knight (16 miniatures)
HOT14 Hordes of the Dead (16 miniatures)
HOT21 Zombie Horde (16 miniatures)
HOT24 Undead Cavalry (6 miniatures)
HOT36 Mounted Wraiths (6 miniatures)
HOT63 Catapult with Undead Crew (1 set)
HOT64 Cadaver Zombies (10 miniatures)
HOT74 Wraith Lord on Fell Beast (1 set)
HOT83 Undead Command (16 pieces)
HOT95 Ghosts (10 miniatures)

These can all be found on the HOT 15mm Fantasy page of our website HERE.

If you have ideas for HOT then I always want to hear them.  The range almost always expands on the back of wargamers requests so comment here or all the better email me direct and let me know what you would like to see. There will be a second part to this expansion of the Undead in the HOT range next month as we have even more codes coming.  But no spoilers at this point as they are still very much in the works.

Thanks for Reading.

A Blasting Good Offer 15% off this weekend!

06.10.14. The Show is now over and our offer is too.  Many thanks to all who took us up on it. Orders are hitting the mail from today.  According to wargamers and the organisers of Blast-Tastic the convention was a modest success which is excellent for its first year.  An attendance of eighty or so dedicated 15mm science fiction players and a group of happy traders.  Excellent!  GBS

This Saturday the long anticipated wargame show Blast-Tastic is happening in Bristol in the UK. The show is a new venture specialising in science fiction wargaming mainly in the 15mm scale. We had planned to attend the show but due to circumstances beyond our control (other meetings we had scheduled on the near thousand mile round trip pulled out on us!) we have had to cancel. This has upset us greatly so instead of attending we are extending a weekend offer instead. If you are in the UK and near enough to consider attending please do so. Here are the details of the show.

Code is: blast15

To this end we are offering a code to get 15% off any and all online orders with us valid from now until 12 Noon GMT on Monday 6th October 2014. This offer is open to all customers across the world. Since we cannot get to the show its only fair that you all benefit. This code covers all of our products from Science Fiction (15mm and 6mm scales) to Fantasy to Historical miniatures as well as army packs, rulebooks and everything else (with the exception of our paid for PDF downloads sorry!). Expand your forces, treat yourself or just pick up some samples for future consideration. This discount is ON TOP of those offers already on our Deals and Offers page.  It also is on top of the offer we make on every pack where if you BUY THREE YOU SAVE 10% already, so well worth checking it out.

Go to our website:

Use the code 'blast15' as it appears here during the checkout process on page two of the process (that is after you fill your cart, proceed to checkout and then enter your payment details) on same page page as your postage choice in the DISCOUNT box and your product total will automatically reduce 15% on screen. You can learn more about promo codes on this page of our website.

The Prang by Space Jacker and Sam Croes

The Prang are some of the most popular miniatures in the SHM Range at  Sculpted by Eli Arndt (he of Loud Ninja Games fame) they are aliens of impressive stature suitable for any aliens inclusive space opera setting.  This popularity has seen the Prang get to almost every corner of the world from Brazil to Poland, Canada and Australia too and pictures of them appearing on the web.

Last week a favourite painter of 15mm science fiction miniatures from many manufacturers and sellers put up his own vision of the Prang.  This fellow was Spacejacker a chap who has featured here before with his impressive painting.  As it turned out his vision of the Prang was greatly different to that of Sam Croes (lead designer at The Ion Age) who painted up our own Prang on the website.  This was brought to my attention by a couple of emails asking if I had seen the difference.  That is the central message of this show you these visions.

There is a massive difference in the interpretation of the Prang between these two excellent miniature painters.  Spacejacker goes for a blue skin tone combined with a light into white armour built up from grey tones and lighted up with red lines and circles.  Sam Croes went for an orange skin tone and various shades of brown finished with gun metal and off white details.  These are the same miniatures but they look so different.  Well done to both of them!


Lastly I have put a special promotion on the value packs of Prang on our website.  Go HERE to see them and they are currently at 15% off their normal price for the next week or so.  So if you want more Prang or fancy trying your hand at these excellent paint jobs this is your saving chance.
