Sci-Fi wargaming in 1/72: more aliens added

Because 1/72 or (not entirely accurate) 20mm scale is The One Scale for people my age and to give some opposition to the tide of beautiful 15mm and 28mm sized stuff here is an overview of my 20mm Sci-Fi wargaming stuff, mostly made for Stargrunt II and its worthy successor Tomorrow's war. As you will find it is an eclectic mix of 1/72 figures and kits, large 15mm stuff and random toys. Not all is pictured here but I refer to my other blogposts of Tomorrow's War especially. 

The 1/72 figure shown for scale with the vehicles is a Dark Dream Studio SF figure


Critical Mass Heavy Arc Fleet Grav tanks


Critical Mass Merc grav APCs


A Void grav tank destroyer. 


Critical Mass heavy Merc tank


Revell Leopard IIs and a Critical Mass Heavy Merc tank


Khurasan APCs



Revell APCs (2 Fuchses and a Marder)


A scratchbuilt APC from Aliens (cardboard and bits)


Dark Dream Studio 1/72 combat walkers


Dark Dream Studio 1/72 hunter/killers


Various scratchbuilt artillery pieces (AT gun, Missile platform and AA gun)


Some toys of unknown brand or type


RH Miniatures Colonial Marines 

Alien drones


Dark Dream Studios 1/72 SF troopers


RH Miniatures Imperial troopers


Aliens for TW: comparative shots of a Khurasan Felid (small alien), a Caesar Delta Force trooper (above), a RH Miniatures battle armoured trooper (below) and a GW Tau (big alien)

  1. The "unknown" apc next to your Fuchs is a Marder Apc used by the West Germans during the cold war. 70`s and 80`s.nice collection. 1/72/20mm rules!! i almost bought those dark dream troopers once..are they worth it??

  2. The DDS set is actually a strange but very nice set. It consists of 14 very nicely done figures in 7 poses, most of which are shown in the picture above, one Combat walker and one Hunter/killer. Hence a box will provide you with about 2 squads of troopers including support weapons like RPG and SAW and two small Mechs. The Mechs are a bit fiddly to build but will end up being nice models. The paintjob I did on them years ago is atrocious however and I will probably repaint them in the near future.

    1. The Colonial Marines are made by Rolf Hedges of RH Models (http://www.rhmodels.com/) He makes terrific miniatures as you can see. His site is alas not very forthcoming with information but he has always responded clearly and quickly top emails. Mail him and ask to be admitted to his forum where you can find pictures of his miniatures http://excoboard.com/RHMODELS

      Ordering works through email and he accepts credit card payments. He is always quick to deliver and his stuff is top quality ( I have yet to receive one figure with any flash on it so far).
