Pole Bitwy: 15mm Sci Fi Simian Troopers

Pole Bitwy 15mm Sci Fi Simians

Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn.
Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed.
Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land.
Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert
of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back
into his jungle lair,
for he is the harbinger of death.

Cornelius reading from the Sacred Scrolls
Planet of the Apes (1968)

Pole Bitwy 15mm Sci Fi Simians Pack No.1

When Piotr of Pole Bitwy originally told me that he was having Sci Fi Simians sculpted in 15mm, I really wasn't expecting to want to include them in my Sci Fi armies. I admit, my mind's eye saw something along the lines of the classic Planet of the Apes style big chimps in space suits.

Well, how wrong I was! Piotr has given us some magnificent creatures! I will be delighted to use these to create a new Sci Fi force for Alien Squad Leader and Tom.War!

Pole Bitwy 15mm Sci Fi Simians Pack No.1

I WANT these guys! The Simians will not only make an excellent alien OpFor but also Ogryn style auxiliaries within my main planetary human armies. Skirmish wise, they are simply perfect for Mutants and Death Ray Guns and will be imposing on any tabletop!

Height varies from 24 to 26mm to the top of the head and 22 to 24mm to the eyes. The crouching Simian's height is 22mm to the top of the head and 20mm to the eyes. They were deliberately designed to tower above modern 15mm [18mm] humans. The final packet content might change before being released but will include two copies each of four different sculpts. This is not a one pack wonder! Additional Simian command, heavy weapons and specialist miniatures are being sculpted right now!

Piotr hopes the first pack of 15mm Sci Fi Simians will be available in January 2010 or with a bit of luck sooner. Fingers crossed then!
