Rebel Minis, VPR (Viper) Suit Weapons

Here is a look at pre-production weapons that can be used for the Rebel Minis Viper Suit.  Actually they can be used for all the walkers.

These were sculpted by John Bear Ross. Check out his blog for more pictures and cool stuff.

Rebel Minis, VPR (Viper) Suit

Rebel Minis has a really cool walker coming out called the VPR Suit (Variable Payload Raider, or the Viper Suit).  The figure was designed by John Bear Ross.

ACP Games

Here are a bunch of Comparisons of the ACP Games line of figures. Really like them. Love the rules.

CorSec Engineering, Barrier Fence

Here is something cool from CorSec Engineering called the Barrier Fence.

They are not sure if they are going to include the rods with the set. They will provide all the plastruct and K&S engineering part numbers that work with it. So far they have tried brass, styrene, and the florescent green acrylic.

Khurasan Miniatures, Kilo Outpost

Here is something really different from Khurasan Miniatures called the Kilo Outpost.  It was designed by John Bear Ross.  I guess Jon is getting into the terrain business.  Pretty slick.

Kilo Outpost will retail for $39.99 USD It was designed by the great John Bear Ross and this was painted by Martin of "Fire Broadside." It looks like Martin did not glue the pieces together -- they interlock and even when not glued you can see that they fit together fairly well.

The Control Battalion figure is mounted on a large plastic base, but figures mounted on coins will look lower in relation to the walls and when standing on the ramparts.

Khurasan Miniatures, XM-6 Grav Tanks

Here are some concepts of the the new XM-6 Grav Tanks by Khurasan Miniatures. The price is going to depend on what the parts cost, of course, but they will most likely be entirely made out of resin, so the price could be similar to the Siler.

ACP Games, Artwork

Here is some really sweet artwork for upcoming races in the ACP Games universe.

ACP Games, Millenniumcon

Just got back from Millenniumcon in Round Rock Texas. It isn't the largest convention, but it's a lot of fun. Had a great time talking with Jimbo from ACP Games. He had a sweet setup showcasing his miniatures, a great staff helping and a really nice demo table.

Got a chance to try out the Valkyrie (Beta 2) ruleset and I must say, it might be one of the best 15mm rules sets out there.  The only downside to the rules (Unless I am wrong) is that they are only written for the ACP Games miniature line. Meaning it doesn't have the ability to create your own units.  Still you can easily use proxies with the currently army lists and have a brilliant game.

What really stood out was how the assault rules worked, objectives, cover and the use of command points.  We weren't using all the rules since it was a demo, but for a convention, it was perfect.  The rule set gives the player tons of options on what to do.  The command points really spice up the game and make the game feel much more interactive.  The command points in the demo allowed you to call in artillery strikes, bring in reinforcements, rally troops and bump up your  initiative rolls.  In the demo the way to gain command points was by controlling any one of 3 objective markers.  Each objective was worth 5 command points.  Command points are used after each round.  I used them mostly to call in artillery strikes (3 command points) on targets I wanted to assault.

If a unit takes a casualty during an artillery strike, they are considered suppressed.  A suppressed unit is a much easier to assault.  In the game I did find that you don't want to tangle with Valkyries in CC.  Even when suppressed, they can sometimes (actually did) kick butt.

The game also allows for pre and post measurement, so you always know your enemies range bands.

Some of the new AA Valkyries and Tanks.

Makat Army including Eldars, Hunters, Jaguars, Bombard Missle, Scouts.  To the right there are a bunch of walkers.

Federalists (They have a grove in their helmets)


Here is a life sized pre-production Federalist helmet Jimbo is currently working on.  Pretty sweet.

Awesome demo/gaming table.  He actually had it up for sale.
