Tom over at GFI gave me a heads up last week about his 19 new AFVs for Near Future/Sci-Fi in N scale.
You know, I'm tempted, really tempted by them. There's enough detail in N Scale for the model soldier freak in me but without the painting pain of 15mm. Whilst N scale are also small enough to have many of the benefits of 6mm especially affordability, combat ranges and room for manouvering Grav on the tabletop.
Plus, and it's a big plus..... these AFVs simply ARE my personal vision of Hammers Slammers....look at that 'Combat Car' above! Whilst the enclosed hull might not be strictly canon, I definitely prefer it, as I never got the Slammers open top Chelsea Flower Show 'pergola' look.
GFI already produce some nice Near Future infantry and a comprehensive range of N scale Modern armour, vehicles, infantry and accessories. If you need additional suitable infantry, the N Scale Modern Germans, Brits and SAS/Spetnaz put many established Modern figure manufacturers to shame, whilst Force XXI has a small but tasty range of opposing 10mm Grav armour.
Even if you are a committed 15mm gamer, take a look, there are some potential ideas for Future kitbashing Modern armour:
