Z4Miniatures, Battlepod

Here is a look at the upcoming Z4Miniatures new battlepod.  This would be perfect for a 15mm walker/mecha or a 28mm combat drone.

The finished product will have two weapon mounts and a variety of weapon options. These options will be cross-compatible with the Pendekar battlesuits, so all of you thinking the pre-packed guns look really weedy can look forward to this little guy's amazing compensatory mechanism…

It's smaller than the first one and Stands ~42mm to the top of the pod. Weapon heights variable.

Dreamforge Games, Eisenkern Heavy Trooper

Here are some upcoming units from Dreamforge Games called the Eisenkern Heavy Troopers. I really like the look of these. Kind of remind me of GW's Grey Knights, but with more fire power.  I could see these guys slowly walking down some city scape blasting away at stuff.  These are slated for 32mm scale, but could be used in 28mm/32mm games.

I also like how the uniforms/armor tie in with the Sturmtruppen soldiers.  Hopefully Mark will make an even heavier unit that is Terminator size or maybe a little bigger.

Khurasan Miniatures, Karkarines

Wave 2 of the Karkarines is approaching. Really like these figures from Khurasan Miniature.  These guys add some more hitting power to the army.  Jon has a great write-up on the TMP

Highlander Studios, Kendo Masters and Student set

Rod from Highlander Studios is busy working on another set of fun figures called the Old Master, the Dark Master and the Young Student set or something like that.  Look for the set to be released sometime around February.  He has 2 other sets planned including one with the Little Green Master + 2 others and Droids with a space princess.

Here are some rather cool figures on Shapeways called the Frogan. They are designed by admiralducksauce's designs   I would love to see these in metal.  A pack of 4 is $9.99 which is rather expensive for 15s, but they are cool.  I would love to see these compared to some other 15s to get a feeling for their size.  This guy has some nice talent.  He also has some pretty cool spaceships in his store.

MicroPanzer Wargame Studio, ATV

MicroPanzer and Combat Wombat's first joint project.  The 8 wheeled Hippo or ATV or something like that.

Price for a single unit is $12.50 USD a 3 pack for $30.00 USD

This is the first of many joint projects being worked on with Combat Wombat and eventually be sold by both websites but for initial release sales will be handled by Miropanzer website. micropanzer.com

Khurasan Miniatures, Stikks Skuttler

Here is a totally wacky vehicle from Khurasan Miniatures called the Skuttler. It is designed to be both a troop transport and armored fighting vehicle. Each segment is designed to hold up to 3 soldiers.

The Vehicle was designed by John Bear Ross (JBR). It has a separate head and tail, then separate middle segments that can be posed. The legs are one piece, but the way they attach to the body segments, you can pose them in many ways.  Jon found it a little tricky to build and he thought it required a bit of thought, but had lots of fun doing it.

It was painted by Chris Yaro.

The kit will be sold as a starter set with head and tail and two body segments, the minimum needed for propulsion (of course). Then extra segments will be sold as expansion sets, so you can make it longer. The one pictured below is a super heavy version with six segments! Production looks to be sometime around March.

Khurasan Miniatures, Kilo Outpost

Khurasan Miniatures has released the Kilo Outpost. The retail price is $39.99

The starter set has ten parapetted wall sections, four heavily-armored bastions (corner sections) with white metal gun turrets, and a gate section including separate door. The Sections plug into each other by small tabs on the bottom that are not visible when the set is assembled. To expand the size of your outpost, additional sets of parapetted walls are available.

Designed by John Bear Ross. The parts of Kilo Outpost that are cream colored resin were cast by JTFM Enterprises. These cream-coloured resin pieces are very dense and you must prime them with enamel primer (autobody primer, etc) before painting them with acrylics as acrylics will not adhere to the resin surface.

I would love to see some other forts similar to the old Airfix gun emplacements.

Khurasan Miniatures Federal APC

Here are some 3-D renders of the upcoming Federal APC's from Khurasan Miniatures.  Really Like the look of these.  Kind of reminds me of the Maatac Terrain Monarch Class Light War Machine.
