Some revised 6mm sci-fi goodness

I recently caught some flak from Gouge Workshop for my models on Shapeways.  While I am confident that I'll prevail given the US laws in intellectual property, I figured it couldn't hurt to do some revisions of some of my models anyway.

So without further ado, here are some revised models suitable for Epic or other 6mm games.

To begin, GW has very few symbols that they have trademarked or copyrighted, but one of the best known is the double-headed eagle, or "aquila".  No problem.  I made up my own techno-eagle that I'll be using on my Imperium-inspired models from now on.


Nifty?  Maybe?  Thoughts?  Right.  And now for the actual models.

ZIPHON-II INTERCEPTOR

Two [whatevers] are better than one, right?  In that spirit, here is the new Javelin98-pattern Ziphon-II interceptor, replete with two tails and revised exhaust nozzles.







RAVENSTORM DROPSHIP

I dropped the engines down a bit and replaced the single tail with a dual-tail sharing a horizontal stabilizer.  It still comes with the same weapons and landing gear options.








 TALONSTORM GUNSHIP

Formerly known as the "Rainclaw", the Talonstorm features a new cockpit, missile pods, T-tail, and winglets.




 




HAWKSTORM HEAVY GUNSHIP

Formerly known as the "Rainhawk", the Hawkstorm features newer, larger missile pods, a flattened T-tail, and wings with a swept-back trailing edge.







There will be other modifications coming, so stay tuned!

15mm Ikwen Kickstarter -- Please support this project!

Project image for Loud Ninja Games - The Ikwen Uprising Redux

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/485545784/loud-ninja-games-the-ikwen-uprising-redux

Hey, folks!  Loud Ninja Games is giving the 15mm Ikwen Kickstarter another go, and it needs your help to push it across the finish line.  The Ikwen are an already-established range of miniatures, but this KS will help increase the range to give it more breadth and depth.  The Ikwen help fulfill a mid-tech role in available 15mm sci-fi between high-tech alien and human factions and mindless, low-tech "bugs".  They are also a fairly alignment-neutral faction, such that they could be easily played as an enslaved race struggling for its freedom or a semi-feral band of marauders intent on stripping their victims of all that glitters and gleams.

Please, pitch in and help LNG get this thing done!

3mm Sci-Fi Aircraft

It's been a while since I updated the blog;  life has been incredibly busy, including my taking a new job and moving from Washington State to Honolulu, Hawaii.  I'm finally starting to be able to get around to doing more sculpting, so here is a look at my updated 3mm sci-fi air support assets.









I'm working on a few more variants, including these small one-man scout VTOLs:

3mm Sci-Fi: Team Gladius Refit

When I first started sculpting 3mm minis, it was with an eye towards making my own minis for Steve Jackson's OGRE.  My skills were rudimentary at best, and while I'm no master sculptor, my skills have improved pretty significantly since 2011.

I decided to take a little time to revise some of the minis I haven't shown any love since those days, starting with my wheeled Team Gladius force.  Below are some comparison shots of the old and new sculpts,  I'll soon be replacing the Gladius packs on Shapeways with these ones.
