test figure, initial squad & second squad) so naturally other things got in the way mid batch!
So I have a Leader, 7 Troopers, 2 Snipers and 2 Grenade Launchers.
These are all the figure variants form the old Arc Recon Command pack. Ral Partha have just released the Arc Fleet figure range but packaged differently.
I happy with the way these guys have turned out. there is a lot of details with straps and small pouches all over the uniform. I've gone for a wash and highlight method, as I'm still finding my feet somewhat with details at this level. But with the consistent contrasting basing and all grouped together I can see them storming an emplacement soon.

I was at Edinburgh's Wargame Show, "Claymore", last Saturday and thought I'd share my new 15mm Sci-Fi purchases.
Yes I was busy at the Warbases stand buying up some of their new 15mm Sci-Fi range. The Landing Pad and Control Tower which look perfect for my Space Port, 3 different Hab pods (Single, Double and L-shaped) which can fit in anywhere and a WWII Bunker which will fit nicely into a more ruined Sci-Fi battle zone.
Silo which can double as a dice tower. A bit more of a hike in price from the other pieces, but still pretty modest a £16 it should be a big beast.

I am glad to say that my new venture ,15mm Skirmish Supplies, is now open for business.
At the moment we have Ral Partha's Demonworld in for Fantasy and Blue Moon Manufacturing Sci-Fi squads. We have also some Gothic Horror and World War II sets. Finally (for the moment) Amera provide affordable terrain options. More ranges will be coming in the future,
The product list has been tailored for Skirmish wargamers. So more different poses for your figures. No wasting money on boxes of unwanted spares. A single place with many options.

Gisby's Gaming Blog I had a look at the REDvectors site. One thing I've fancied is a fantasy 15mm mdf ruins kit. The pictures above and below are 28mm from the REDvectors site, but definitely fitted in with the style I like (Tudor-ish), so I got in touch with Mick @ REDvectors.

I have admit that these have been sitting completed for a couple of weeks waiting to be photographed. Ral Partha's Demonworld\Blighthaven City Guard. As mentioned in a previous post I've misplaced one of the spearmen, so to add to the numbers (and give a bit of diversity) I've added in a Medieval Knight (from an unknown manufacturer).
These are great figures with loads of detail. Strangely the crossbows are the first I can remember painting with the authentic early big flat triggers (in any scale)! I'm looking forward to getting them on the table for a game.

Graffam elements are all done. I've used:
- The Outpost (v1)
- The Observation Post (v1)
- Spaceport Crates
- Spaceport Battlemap #1
The Battlemap is printed on banner vinyl by Pixart Printing. It is printed full size as provided which is technicalled for 28\30mm but as you can see works perfectly for 15mm
The other kits are reduced by around 60%. I say "around" as I don't actually scale them down. I use the Adobe Reader print option to "print multiple pages on a sigle side" and print 2 per page. Having measured this up of other (fantasy) kits it comes in at around 60%, which is ideal for based 15mm.
The small card pieces are obviously quite light by themselves they require some sort of weighing down. Being Scottish I obviously have a spare (out of date) bag of Scotch Broth mix at the cupboard which is perfect for the job. Just partially fill the piece before is is sealed shut, this will not only add weight but lower it's centre of gravity for extra stability.
Now for the difficult part, getting the toy craft painted - queue delay for next update....

I wasn't completely sure how to be painting these guys. My natural choice was a brown/green scheme, but with the Spugs being green I decided I wanted a scheme that was completely different. So I've done a single test figure.
After a little bit of "evolution" I've the pallet I'll be going for...

Finished my Ral Partha Spugs (Space Bugs). Really enjoyed painted these. 4 troopers with rifles (different poses), another Officer with a pistol, a Leader with Power Glove and Blade, Heavy Weapon setup, Support gun and hover bike. This is the entire range but should be enough for most skirmish games.

But just to assure you I am on the case, here is a quick piccy of my first 2 figures for my Ral Partha\Demonworld Town Guard. I only did two to get my eye in after not having painted since November - especially for this scale again. In hindsight I probably shouldn't have started with 2 main warband characters, but it doesn't matter now.
I'll get them based and properly snapped in a group shot when the rest are done.
