ClearHorizon Miniatures - 15mm Infantry "The Hell Divers" Final Preview

by Harold

Hi Everyone,

First, a disclaimer.  Yes, this is an article about my own miniature line :) And yes, I'm too excited not to share it with all of you!

Rodrick Campbell of Highlander Studios, Inc. has almost finished sculpting the initial release of ClearHorizon Miniatures' sci-fi SpecOps team, the Hell Divers.

Rod has written a very cool "behind-the-scenes" article on his blog about the process of scultping the Hell Divers:
Standing Riflement

Kneeling Riflemen

One of the command figures.

Sniper Team

SAW gunner with backpack.  The backpacks are separate and each squad comes with enough to outfit all the members with backpacks.

Initial release will be 16 unique figures, including command, squad support weapons, AT weapons, a sniper team, and riflemen.

Each squad will also come with a separate backpack, to give you the option to show them on a long deployment, or just a quick direct-action mission.

These should be released soon, but in the meantime, here are some of the preview pictures of the finalized sculpts, ready to be turned into masters!

Beyond this I have some pretty cool things on the horizon too! Including Power Armor, Rim Defectionists (Mercs/Space Pirates) and more!


  1. great stuff good luck with these, they look fantastic
    Peace James

  2. Looking good. I love the drop pods too. It must be an amazing feeling to have your own miniatures line coming together after all that hard work.

  3. They look great, but I can't help thinking that their necks are just a tad to long, I could be wrong, it might change with painting.

  4. Could be that most gaming miniatures have no necks. I'm a middle height, thick necked, stout guy and my chin level is still a good two inches plus above shoulder level.

    The guy in the left in the first picture does seem to have a few giraffe genes spliced in, though. Might just be the shadow around that area, but it may have also been one that just slipped past in the sculpting.

  5. TBH Rodrick, I'm being over critical, theses are pretty darn good, the sculpting is excellent, and the design is very nice, and they will look brilliant painted up.

  6. Great!!
    I´m looking forward to have these miniatures for my NI army.
    I want to use them as Spec-Ops, like "sayeret" teams.

  7. Late to the party, but I'm considering using these as French Special Forces in TW!

    They're specially augmented troops, so if they're even slightly out of proportion, it works!

    Looks good!

  8. Mmmm....Like the look of these. I'll have to share with MasterChef as there's a Zhodani thing going on here.
