Thanks, Skully. I've looked at that one. Everyone seems to say the water washable resin is the way to go. So I have that much down!

Those Scions are awesome!

Very tempted to do the Burning of Prospero in 15mm now as I just take forever to paint 28mm. I've already been doing Epic for Horus Heresy and that has involved a lot of 3D prints and the quality can be jaw droppingly good.

3D printing is certainly revolutionary, once you start off down that road you won't turn back, so much is possible for wargaming that was the stuff of dreams beforehand.

Amen, brother.  :D

I felt like painting Space Marines. Here are the first five of my Dark Angels.

I wonder why GW never went to this scale. If they did, I wasn't aware of it. For the size of the battles, and including vehicles, this scale is much better suited. Granted, there wouldn't be quite so much of a cash grab at this scale, but I wouldn't think of it as an either-or prospect. Rather, I would think that you would get even bigger armies, and perhaps whole chapters of marines or whole guard forces. I cant help thinking there was a real missed opportunity there.

Them shifty dark angels are slick  :-*

Gotta stop doing this man I don't need the temptation to do 40k in 15mm lol

And apparently GW did do a series of figures in 15mm years ago as a part of a test project but they've never seen the light of day. They still exist though apparently, locked away with all sorts of test models that have been kept back for records sake.

The Novan tank was spot on, hadn't seen it before. I'm not a fan of the DIMOG Walker, though - at least not in the role as a sentinel.

Have you seen this?

HADES Mech by Oscar Falk, on Flickr

It's even on sale:

Rebel makes some biped walkers. Not quite right but they are cheap and plastic-ish so easy to mod into more of a long gun on the side configuration.

Proxie models makes a plastic 15mm Leman Russ stand-in, also.  He calls it the Trencher.  I like the design better than Vanguard's tank, but YMMV.

http://www.proxiemodels.com/product/trencher/

The pic on his site is bad, but here are some better shots of mine.  I chose not to add the side sponsons, but they are included in the kit.

It's worth adding that his selection of bases is very helpful for anyone trying to avoid paying absurdist GW prices for the oddball sizes and shapes their games have embraced.  He's also got flight bases, which have started to get kind of hard to find since whoever was making the old hex stand type burned the mold out.

Skully,

What kind of modifications are you making on your marines? Weapon swaps, head swaps... pose changes?

I've started designing my own 3d files for my 15mm sci-fi and have found it to be both awesome and somewhat limited depending on what I'm attempting to do. Remixing a pre-made file is nice, but I'm finding that putting in the work to learn scratch building is really paying off dividends.

Hey Andrew! It's really just kitbashing things. Imagine tinkering with an unlimited bitz box. I'm just swapping arms and heads, consider me a noob!

We all start somewhere, and I think it is hard to argue with your success thus far!

By the way, if you ever get into Orks or Eldar, you should check out this designer. This is the free stuff, but more is available for a modest price:

Damn those look good, Skully.

I just got my resin printer in the mail yesterday. Unfortunately, this week is a bit busy, so it will be another week or so before I unbox it and get set up, but I'm pretty pumped! Your thread is a primary inspiration!
