Marhaf Legion, PlasmaBlast Games

Well I finally got my new Marhaf Legion figures from Marios.  There was a mix up in addresses, but all is good.

I have to say these are some of the best 6mm vehicles I have seen in quite some time.  The detail is really really good.  The tanks fit in perfectly with the other PlasmaBlast Games Progenitor and the Orbital Combine armies.

Marios introduced a new size tank with the Marhaf Legion.  It's called the Maarghast - Heavy Assault Tank.  As you can see from the pictures below it's larger than the heavy tanks, but smaller than the Super Heavy Tanks.  The guns are massive and look like they could easily punch a hole in any vehicle that is out there including the Super Heavies.

I really love the look of the Marhaf Legion.  The figures are a little more detailed than the previous armies vehicles, but they still fit in very well with all of them.  As you can see there isn't any scale creep or anything that looks out of place.

Beyond the current vehicles, Marios says he is working on new designs and should have a few more figures out this year.  He has been working on another vehicle for the Marhaf Legion that is simply awesome and will be a must buy, regardless if you collect 6mm or not.  It is that cool.  I would give more intel, but it's under wraps right now.

Angel Barracks - Regional Defense Force

Looking for some nice 6mm Sci-Fi. Angel Barracks has some pretty sweet vehicles and troopers from their Regional Defense Force.  The tank variant is a prototype and not available yet.

DreamForge Games, Eisenkern Stormtrooper Conversions

 I have been watching Clone Wars on Netflix (Awesome by the way) and wanted to get some clone trooper figures.  Well looking around it seems Wizard Of The Coast has probably the best set around, but they just don't feel edgy enough.

Well doing a little Google image searching I came across Agis Neugebauer's clone trooper conversions.  Agis always manages to amaze me with his painting and conversion skills.

He used the troops by DreamForge Games,(The Eisenkern Stormtrooper miniatures) and converted them with head swops using WotC Star Wars Clone Troopers.  I think Agis nailed it on the look of these guys.  Of course Mark Mondragon of DreamForge did an outstanding job with his cool Eisenkern troopers.  Combining Clone Trooper heads with their bodies make them super cool.

Retro Raygun, Hydra Miniatures

Hydra Miniatures is going to be releasing a new ruleset called Retro Raygun for their Sci-Fi Hydra Miniatures line.

Hydra Miniatures is pleased to announce that we are entering the editing and layout phase for our upcoming rules, Retro Raygun: Action Adventure in the Atomic Age. These rules are the second system to take place in Hydra Miniatures’ “Retroverse,” and feature the same background and characters as our acclaimed War Rocket rules.
Like War Rocket, the Retro Raygun system is chartless, has no record keeping and minimal token usage to keep the table from getting cluttered. Retro Raygun features alternating unit activation to keep both players involved in the action. In order to capture the cinematic feel of the pulp sci-fi era, all action is elegantly resolved by a special opposed dice mechanic known as the Raygun Roll-off.
Retro Raygun will feature complete force lists for the Galacteers, Robot Legion and the Valkeeri. In fact, our ranges for these three factions will be completed in time for the release of the rules, so fans who collect our Retro Raygun miniatures can start playing right away.
The rules will also feature a brief history of the “Retroverse,” eight special objective-based scenarios, and a Cosmic Bestiary so you can include alien creatures like the Aquaclops and the Slishians in your games. The full-color rulebook will be released in August 2014, and the retail price is yet to be determined.

Plasmablast Games, Marhaf Legion

Just got an email from Mario over at Plasmablast Games.  He had some exciting news about the Marhaf Legion.  These represent the 3rd 6mm army in the Plasmablast Games lineup. 

It has taken Marios about 2 years to get them to this point.  They are very intimidating without being over the top.

Prices range from 1.7€ for the medium tanks to 3.8€ for the double track heavies. 

Mario will be adding more options to the Marhaf Legion, Progenitor and Orbital Combine later this summer.

Crann Tara Miniatures, Monolith Graven Images

Crann Tara Miniatures have just announced that they will be releasing the Monolith Graven Images range.  For those that don't know about these figures, they are 40mm, so they will not fit in with your 28mm games.  The figures have a very different style to them, but are simply amazing IMO.

Here are some cool examples of figures that were sculpted.  I am not sure if all these will be available or not.

To see more images go check out Jim Bowen's Graven Images.  There is also a Yahoo Group that has quite a few images.

Killer B Games Comparisons

Craig send out some more Killer B Games figures for me to have a look at.  First up are some rather cool Lost Legion Troopers.  Included in the mix are other figures from Killer B and a few fun figures from the Dick Garrison (Wargames Supply Dump) line.

For the most part the Killer B Games figures match up really well next to the Dick Garrison line.  The DG heads are smaller and they are a little less bulky.  That said, you can easily use both and they would complement each other nicely.

Dark Star Games Sci-Fi Vehicles

Dark Star Games is coming out with a really nice set of 15mm Sci-Fi vehicles. These are resin and the cost seems really good.  $20 for 5 vehicles.  Since they are resin, so doing conversions on them will not be a problem.

You can find out about them from Dark Star Games

Killer-B Games, Star Patrol

When you need robots in a really bad way, who ya gonna call...the Star Patrol of course. Killer-B Games has some fun and fantastic robots for their GAFDOZ line of figures in the Star Patrol range.

Killer B's GAFDOZ range of figures are just too cool and will work in just about any pulp or sci-fi setting. 

Craig Rowllings sent me 2 the robots he has for his Star Patrol and I really like them.  The metal is clean and any excess flash was easily removed.  You can either glue these or pin them.  I prefer to pin them for additional support.

Boo stands about 45mm tall and VIR7 is about 35mm tall.  Boo retails for £4.00 and VIR7 retails for £6.00.  VIR7 also comes with a big tracked sport vehicle and shovel.

Definitely support Craig with some purchases.  You will love the figures and have a ton of adventures using them.

Dick Garrison Miniatures

If you like Killer B Games figures you will also like a bunch of the Dick Garrison lines of figures.

The figures can be found at Wargames Supply Dump and there is a blog out there called Dick Garrison.  The figures have a sort of Flash Gordon feel to them.

There was a ruleset released called Dick Garrison Rapid Launch"Dick Garrison Rapid Launch is a stripped down but fully functioning version of our forthcoming The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Dick Garrison, Pulp SF wargames rules for 28mm scale miniatures."  I am not sure if the The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Dick Garrison was ever published.
