Warhammer - Display Case

The other day I was pulling into my neighborhood and spied a display case. I have been wanting one for all the miniatures I have collected over the years and this one was free. It is actually quite awesome.  I could actually use 2 of these suckers, but I doubt I will find a second like this.

Incursion Miniatures

"You want a piece of me!" Here are some GrindHouse Games Incursion miniatures that I saw at MillenniumCon 2012.  The pictures don't do the paint jobs or miniatures justice.

Eureka Miniatures | Mad Maximillion Automobiles

Looking to spice up your Pulp games with some cool vehicles.  Eureka Miniatures range of Mad Maximillion Automobiles might be just the ticket.  I found a few cool vehicles that that could be used for pulp games or even westerns.

I am not exactly sure of the scale, but I think they would work for 28mm. 

Here is someone who has a few painted up.

True Scale Space Marines | Primaris

GW finally came out with true Scale Space Marines known as Primaris.  The Primaris marines are much taller than their previous space marine counterparts and look fantastic next to Imperial troopers where they tower over them.  I believe the Space Marines were supposed to be around 7 feet tall, so now they look the part.

Miniatures by painted by Ninjabread

The downside to the Primaris is the fact that they are now considered (At least by GW) to be too big to fit into a Rhino for transport and too big for the Land Raider.  That doesn't make much sense because Terminators can ride in them and they are way bulkier than the Primaris troopers at present.

At least right now you will have to purchase a Primaris Repulser to move these guys around the battle field.  At $80 a pop that doesn't come cheap.

Here is a really cool company called Ironclad Miniatures who have a Victorian Sci-Fi range.
