Earlier this week, three new figures were added to the SHM Range. First is the Criat Mercenary - described as strong and resilient creatures who will eat anything - even the flesh of their own kind. If you're looking for something a bit less conventional, we have the Biomorph - a 7mm-tall pile of genetically-engineered flesh, teeth, and claws. And if you really want a unique figure, the Jelly Cube might be just what you have in mind. While primarily intended for fantasy dungeon crawls, this 24mm-tall monstrosity would be equally at home on a derelict spacecraft or an abandoned colony.

And today brings us expansions to two popular factions in the HOF Science Fiction range. The Wasteland Uber Goons, perfect for games like USE ME UM007 and Mutants & Death Ray Guns, receive a pack of Heavy Weapons. This mix of figures is armed with a fusion gun, a cool boxy-looking missile launcher, and a flamethrower - the true staple of any henchmen force.
The popular Octopods, not known for subtlety or finesse, have been reinforced by this pack of assault troops. They are armed with pistols and hack-and-slash weapons, and would make great mercenaries or auxiliaries even in non-Octopod armies.
But with all these foot-sloggers (or is that tentacle-sloggers?), it didn't seem like the Octopods can match the speed of other HOF forces like the Retained Knights and the Shia Khan. So they grabbed some surplus starfighter thrusters, bolted saddles to the top of them, and called them Jetbikes. These look like some of the fastest light vehicles to be found on the 15mm tabletop, and should be a lot of fun to paint.
To support these latest HOF releases, 15mm.Co.Uk has announced a 10% off sale on all Octpod and Wasteland Uber Goon packs. This offer is good through March 1st, and covers all codes in those ranges (not just the new releases).
Gavin has promised even more releases in the HOF Science Fiction range in the coming months. Stay tuned!
