SciFi Figures Inventory

In the old days, I had all the time but none of the money...

This section of figures inventory covers all sorts of science fiction miniatures. Ultramoderns are included in modern section.

Everything here is in 28mm unless otherwise specified.

Eldar

The color scheme is somehow familiar. It might official this or that craftworld scheme, but I really don't know. Or care.

Purple Hearts Marines

Missile launcher. Note the veteran trooper markings.

These are regular WH40K figures. I have loads of epic scale marines also...

Space Comrades

Brave sergeants lead the way.

These are some very old cheap figures I bought way back then.

Baughast

Quite frankly, I think these turned out better than I thought they would.

These are actually my old Warzone Bauhaus figures I repurposed.

Tyranids

Almost all my painted tyranid forces.

These are regular WH40K figures. The genestealers don't match the color scheme of the rest of the army for two reasons. The first batch I did long before any tyranids really existed and when I did the second one, the stealer model just doesn't take this paint scheme well because it lacks the carapace plates.

Bugs

Another batch of bugs. Looks pretty much like the first one, doesn't it?

These are all Starship Troopers figures. I dug them from my archives and started painting them just for kicks.

Robots

Specialised siege robot from early days of 40K. It's missing the weapon on the back, because I converted this as a part of a fantasy battle project... that never got anywhere, as you might have guessed.

Most of these are Warzone figures I bought for cheap. We did a big game with these and then they were mothballed.

Doctor Who

The town is quiet... for now.

Most of these are the official Black Tree figures, though there are some cheap plastic toys mixed in I bought to see if they could be used. I'll gladly pay a little extra for proper figures...

Cobalt Mercenaries

A total of 30 brave Cobalt mercs, arrayed in three squads, assault section, support section and HQ. Oh, and the air support ofcourse.

These are from Westwind's Cobalt-1 game, except the vehicles which are old Grenadier Future Wars.

Palansi

The downside is that the thing is very front-heavy. To balance it, I sawed a bullet in half and glued it to the base as a counterweight.

These are from Westwind's Cobalt-1 game. I'd really like to get some Aruk to go with these, fortunately I found a new supplier for these!

15mm Hammer's Slammers

Initially I intended to have the same amount of figures on each base but then I remembered my episode with the VC and put one less on the buzzbomb bases. This left a couple of figures over to do command bases.

I'm putting all my 15mm Sci-Fi stuff here, even though some of them (especially the aliens) don't really fit in the Slammers universe. The vehicles are from Old Crow while the infantry is mostly GZG with some Rafm, Eureka and others mixed in.

Epic scale

Purple Hearts. For some reason there's much less infantry than for the black guys.

These are mostly old GW Epic figures, but I also included other items in similar scale. Most of this stuff came from the original Space Marine game boxes, that's why the unit mix has so little variaty. Back then you were supposed to identify infantry types by base color...

I should have half a dozen ork battlewagons somewhere, but I can't find them... I also have a bunch of larger mecha models (plus tanks and planes) I used to play Mecha! with, but they are so far not included.

Space

For once, I'd like too see a campaign, where it DID NOT make sense to

a) buy all the heaviest stuff you can
(the ESU fleet in this example is composed entirely of scouts and battleships or heavier)

b) bunch up all your stuff for that

The fighters are mostly from Silent Death while the ships are a a more varied lot though they were used to play Full Thrust. Ironically, I don't have any "fleet scale" fighters, we used to to use Space Marine infantry bases for those. Some fighters are usable (and have been used) as smaller ships. Mostly the ones that don't have huge obvious canopies.

Odds and ends

I was still using enamels when I did these. This guy has a SMG and a combat chainsaw.

These are the odd ones that aren't part of a larger force for some reason. Maybe I just have too few of them or they have a paint scheme that differs a lot from others of their ilk. Quite a few of these are very old Citadel figures, including some pre-40k space marines (they were originally sold as Traveller minis). These also include my Warzone Imperials, at least until I organize them better.

Having these odds and ends is partly due to trying out new ranges and games and partly due to my RPG heritage where you tend to need lots of diverse figures but no large units.
