Invasion! A 15mm project
« on: February 27, 2020, 07:09:38 AM »
I've recently decided to dip my toe into 15mm gaming, having played almost every other scale previously (6, 10, 28/32 and 56...).

The tipping point was the new War Force Reserve infantry from Khurasan, promting me to order some when they went up for pre order.

As 15mm is very much DIY, I have been sketching a project to get some use out of them, which I've tentatively named Invasion!

Fluffvise it will be a mix of Starship Troopers and the Expanse, with some elements from Halo spliced in here and there.

I've already settled on three factions:
  • Colonial Defense Forces
  • Martian Marine Corps
  • Weavers



CDF will be a mix of lightly armoured infantry, currently mostly from PMC26XXs series of NSL.

MMC are primarily Khurasan WFR with Corsair Suit support, but some drones will be added, from GZG or other vendor.

For the Weavers I'll be tapping into my pile of shame, and re use my Relthoza from the OOP Planetfall line. Nominally 10 mm they are big enough to jump scale quite easily.

Thanks!

Rules wise, I have been looking at a lot of options, from Gruntz, to Trilaterum, to dusting off Halo Ground Command.
I finally have two candidates, either our local indie F28 rule set, with some 15mm mods, including things stolen from HGC,, or Victory Decision: Future Combat. I will evaluate both, together with my regular partner in crime...

Here is a quick shot of my first (almost) finished platoon, a Relthoza Recon Helix.
These will be statted as Power Armour of some sort, specced for close combat with short range guns for softening up their victims on the way in.

I've got one more large walker to ink, some Drop Pods to paint, and the bases needs some polishing, but more or less finished...

Thanks!
I keep forgetting that these need to be treated differently than 28 mm minis, but it's hard...

I've all but finished my proof of concept for my Martian Marines, though. By no means flawless, but good enough as first attempt at 15mm...

Thanks everyone!

Yes, the details on the models are really crisp, one can't help but to paint them...

I've actually managed to complete two pairs of Grenadiers as well (almost, bases and dust to finish off):

First five bases and command finished!

Still some varnish to do, but all else should be completed.
