But you need a spark..... and that spark came with a photo Jon at Khurasan sent me over the weekend.
Khurasan Miniatures 15mm Sci Fi Neo-Arabs
15mm Sci Fi/Near Future Neo-Arabs. 20-25 figures in the range apparently. To be released sometime this week, though that's still to be confirmed.
The figures appear to be very similar to Khurasan's Neo-Sovs, no harm there. They are sufficiently different to be opfor whilst similar enough to be allies, confederates or simply mixed in with the Neo-Sovs. Look at today's Russian soldiers in action and you'll see a range of kit. When I first saw the pic I couldn't help but think of near future British troops in Afghanistan and from that I thought aaaahhh Falkenberg's Legion as they might be in theatre.
These new Neo-Arabs have something that appeals to me. They have a good guy, bad guy, regular, militia, commandos, Near Future or Mid-tech far flung dirtball planet future flexibility about them that has my mind racing with ideas and possibilities.
Maybe a far cry from the lithe limbed, shiny carapace, far future figures I currently want to see in 15mm, but sometimes you got to earn your stars in the dust and sand of a forgotten hellhole to get that Police Action ribbon.
