Rodney Strongs 15mm Fantasy Armies take to the field!

Thane Army with HOT Manticores and Chimeras
I am always happy to get pictures from our customers showing them using our miniatures, our rule systems and so on before, during and after wargames.  It kind of closes the loop as it were and we like to look at the images and see how people across the world have chosen to paint and base up the miniatures we sent to them. 

Empire Army using converted HOT Griffins
A very good long standing customer of 15mm.co.uk from the United States of America sent us a host of images of some of his 15mm fantasy armies.  I asked his permission to share and Mr Rodney Strong agreed.  My thanks to him.  The images are a few select ones showing our own miniatures among those of other makers and also the whole of each army too.

He has a large Thane Army and an equally large Empire Army too. HOT Miniatures used for Monsters and for Flyers too.  Excellent.

The Whole Thane Army
Thane and Empire Armies
The HOT 15mm Fantasy Range has a huge selection of miniatures to choose from and a half dozen races too as well as monsters.

Thanks for Reading.

Corporate Ashigaru are Coming!

Later this month 15mm.co.uk will be releasing several new packs of miniatures into the HOF Range of 15mm scale science fiction. Following up on our first stage of the the warriors of the apocalypse we will be presenting the first stage of the whole Corporate Ashigaru range for use with Alien Squad Leader, UM011 USEME Cyberpunk and any other scale appropriate wargame rules system.

What are the Corporate Ashigaru? They are a feature of a lovingly imagined alternate future army list. They are the first stage. The world diverged and the Mega Corporations took over from governments. There is nothing beyond their power as they war with each other secretly and not so secretly. Corporate Ashigaru are the foot soldiers of that most powerful hub of the Corporations Neo-Tokyo. Bonded for life to their suited masters the Ashigaru make the will of the shogun of the board a reality. A unique looking force that speaks of a time when Japan really seemed like it would take over the world and cyborgs had circuit boards.

On the 18th of September 2014 there will be the following releases. These will be as packs and also with the options of three packs with a saving of 10% off list and single miniature purchase from pack codes.

HOF22 Corporate Ashigaru Personalities
HOF23 Corporate Ashigaru II
HOF24 Corporate Ashigaru Support
HOF25 Corporate Ashigaru Leaders
HOFP01 Corporate Ashigaru Platoon

There will also be a platoon pack featuring one of every pose including the original HOF76 Corporate Ashigaru pack. A big sampler if you will perfect for skirmishing gaming. A total of nineteen different miniatures sculpted by Elton Waters.

If you have any questions do let me know by comment or email.

Thanks for Reading.

Skeleton Staff


The Summer has been really busy for us.  None of us got any time off or a break.  So before there is a spark of mutiny we will be going quiet for a little while.  Hopefully catch the last of the good weather.  From the 4th to the 11th of September we will not be releasing any new products and aside from vital email and communications we will be silent online.  There is nothing amiss but in these days of hi-tech living we try to speak every day and since we will be all going our separate ways this will not be possible.  

The normal Goblin staff will be replaced with a temporary 'Skeleton Staff'.  Listen for the rattle of bones!

Continue to send in your emails and comments, orders and questions as normal and they will be attended to in a week or so.  While I cannot speak for the others and what they will be up to I myself will be using the time for a bit of a jaunt about and also to do some fine calibration of some wargame rules I am working on.

As a little hint for what will be happening from the 12th onwards across ...here we go!

Alternative Armies - First Look at Finished modular Ferach Dragoons!

15mm.co.uk - Corporate Ashigaru are Coming!

The Ion Age - Sneak Peek at the Mullo AFV!

Using Litko Tokens in your games of USEME by David Starkey

Last week I was contacted by a fan of USEME who wanted to show 15mm.co.uk his latest idea.  I thought it was so cool that I wanted to share it with you all.  Enjoy the read and the pictures.  Super fast and simple wargaming.  GBS

Recently I had some personalized game token made by Litko to use in my USE ME games at home. I decided on the shape and color of the tokens and up to 12 characters could be printed on each one. Each pack contains 10 tokens so there are plenty to use in a skirmish or small battle. 
 
As you can see I had orange “winged” tokens and red “struck” tokens to place next to my figures on the war games table.

When used with well painted figures it really makes a nice impression as the scenario unfolds across the table. It also makes it easy to keep track of each figure and what state they are in as they travel to victory or certain death with each roll of the dice. I use them with my USE ME Civil War, Fantasy, Old West, and Sci-Fi rules. They are definitely a versatile addition to my 15mm.co.uk rules and figures.

These figures from the Laserburn 15mm Science Fiction range are in rough shape with three of them suffering hits.


Follow the link to the ordering page where I found these nice additions to my USE ME scenarios.  Thanks.

More New Post Apocalypse HOF Packs at 15mm.co.uk

This week we are expanding the domain of the wasteland warriors of the lords of the chem clouds again. That's right two more packs in the Post Apocalyptic setting so that you can carve out a little radioactive place of your own on the gaming table. Sculpted by Elton Waters the designer behind the Security Force Alpha part of the HOF Range and the Automatons too as well as the rest of the Post Apoc packs.  There are now five packs in this part of the range! 

Go HERE for the whole HOF 15mm Science Fiction Range including these new releases.

Here are the details of the two new packs.
HOF20
HOF20 Rear
HOF20 Post Apocalyptic Warriors II
This pack contains ten miniatures taken from four poses of human males wearing rags and trenchcoats all bare footed and sporting scavenged helmets. All of the poses are armed with short barrelled automatic weapons such as SMG's. Good for backing up HOF55 and supporting the other packs in this part of the HOF range such as Command and Support packs. Great for use as normal or mutant or other gang forces for road warriors or urban decay. Or of course as the minions of a mad dictator of an empire of radioactive dust. You can buy a pack or three packs saving ten percent off the price or choose single miniatures.

HOF21
HOF21 Rear
HOF21 Post Apocalyptic Assault
This pack contains ten miniatures taken from three poses for close in attacks and savage raids. Armed with pistols and blades such as knifes and hatchets and wearing scavenged masks and hoods. Great for use as normal or mutant or other gang forces for road warriors or urban decay. Or of course as the minions of a mad dictator of an empire of radioactive dust. You can buy a pack or three packs saving ten percent off the price or choose single miniatures.

HOF18
HOF19
We released two other new Post Apocalyptic packs into HOF back in July. These are their details on this previous blog post HERE.

If you like Post Apocalypse 15mm wargaming then before the bomb falls you will want to check out the excellent rules systems for gaming in this setting which we have. If you like bigger games then Alien Squad Leader has an Army Template for fielding Gangers and if you like skirmishing wargaming then UM007 USEME Post Apocalypse is for you. Our HOF 15mm miniatures work well with either of them. Click through for more information on each of them.

Watch out for petty dictators carving a bloody road to perdition on your travels!
