As the blogpost title suggests, we're curious as to which miniatures from our 6mm Dark Star range are your favorites. Sound off and let us know!
[/insert shameless tease here=] The results might even influence the release schedule of the 15mm sized versions...
(Now, we know which minis sell more than others, but sometimes the vehicles you outfit your force with isn't the one you like best, right? We've done the exact same thing, which is why we're asking!))
Jason Moore of Micropanzer.com painted up a host of Colony-15 figures, and put them up for sale! (They are now sold)
He does this occasionally, so keep your eyes peeled on places like TMP and ebay. He also takes direct commissions, so feel free to badger him.
...and did we mention that there are a LOT more pictures of his work in our Gallery? Well, there are!
The Venturians just received some heavy duty support assets, in the form of the Bo'Sha (Thunder Hail) Multi-Munition Launcher (rocket artillery) and the Tzzoh (Lightning) Anti-Aircraft tank. These 6mm minis are now available in the store for your Dark Star forces in the standard 3-pack.
It is even possible to mix-and-match the turrets (as they use the same hull) to create a very versatile hybrid if you have both packs. Indirect rocket artillery bombardment AND direct Anti-Aircraft/Tank/Infantry fire... Wherever shall your enemies hide?
Mark K. was kind enough to send us some great pictures of his painted Spec-Sec mecha, as well as a home made "Batou" figure! You can see much more in our gallery, or on Mark's own blog. Good stuff!
(*the Tachikoma shown is a commercially available 1/72 kit shown for scale purposes only)
Hey all! Check out these Colonist Adventurers painted by Scott P. Are they rough-and-tumble and ready to ride out, or what?
You can see more of these two frontiersmen (er... frontiersman and frontierswoman, we mean!) in the gallery, as well as at Scott's fine Blog.
*edit: apologies, I had previously mixed up emails from Scott P. and Jay G. the changes have been made...
The pre-orders of the second wave of Colony-15 miniatures shipped out at the end of last week, right on time! And now that we have plenty of stock they are now in general release. We will get some newer pictures up just as soon as some of the figures are painted up. (It's spring break, don't ya know. Busy busy busy)
On a related note, we've had to adjust our shipping rates due to the increases made by the US Postal Service. We really wish we didn't have to do this, but there is only so much cost that can be absorbed before it becomes a major drain. We apologize for the pain this will cause, and know that we feel it to. Solidarity, cousins!
Keep an eye out for sneak peeks of upcoming releases. You know they're coming...
