Critical Mass Games are releasing some exciting new 15mm Sci Fi armour to support their newly released 15mm Kaamados Dominion range. Here is a preview of the 3D renders
Heavy Tank size comparisons
(green box = 15mm figure height)When Craig sent me these pictures a month ago, it caused me to sit down and rethink my 15mm Sci Fi gaming strategy.
I like these models a lot. The APC is rugged and purposeful - you can 'see' it at work on inhospitable worlds. The tank is pure HALO and as for the Scout Cars ..... I think they can be used in any future wasteland/post apoc setting as well! Imagine 3 of them as desert raiders.
These new models give me new focus for building and painting my armies over the coming months, where the successors of great houses are at war for control of a Tatooine/Dune'esque desert planet.
The Harkonnens battle force will have GZG's latest Rommel III hover gun-tanks and the Atreides/Antigonid faction will oppose them with the new Critical Mass Kamaados Heavy Tanks. Mercenary and alien cannon fodder abound. Gunships roar overhead and bots will secure the flanks.
Those Scout Cars, mmmm? Sahadeen raiders allied to no side but always ready to pick off the stragglers.
Speaking to Craig last night, the Kamaados armour should be available in July/August, which suits my pocket fine. Pop over to the Critical Mass Game Forum for more pics and updates.
The APC isn't really my kind of thing. Those tanks really look the business however. Reminds me alot of the old GZG heavy tank, the Mammoth or Leviathan. Whatever it was called.ReplyDelete
The APC's nice, but seems too tall for me? Reminds me of a scaled-down Sandcrawler, at first glance. I prefer longer or wider vehicles to taller ones...ReplyDelete
Love the scout cars!
The APC reminds me of a WW2 German Landwasserschlepper. I like the Sandcrawler analogy - yes, instead of one giant vehicle a train of several APCs which are mobile homesteads for the Sahadeen and provide a base from which they launch their hit and run raids, but also allow them to follow the Spice migration with the seasons.ReplyDelete
Digging those scout cars, thanks for the heads up...ReplyDelete
Agreed, thanks for the heads up. They look ace.ReplyDelete
Like the tank, don't much care for the other two, which have a "child's rolly toy" look about them, and the APC has the further issue that it looks like a plastic storage bin on wheels. Must say I also don't care for the protolene walkers, other than the small one.ReplyDelete
So to be more optimistic, I like the Komodo tank and the protolene small walker!
Love the apcs!ReplyDelete
Not so keen on the APCs, they look like yogurt pots with wheels to me...ReplyDelete
However, the 4 track-tanks are awesome as are the walkers. Impressive stuff this CAD design stuff.
The Scout cars & the tank are quite reminiscent of BattleTech I thought. Will definitely have to get a scout car or two!ReplyDelete
The APCs are absolutely perfect for the Explorer vehicles from Star Frontiers. I've been thinking of trying to make a 15mm visit to the Frontier for a bit, now I'll have a proper vehicle to do it in.ReplyDelete
The tank is nice too. Sure it's not the most realistic design, but it's got tons of scifi chic.
