Robotic drones will play many roles in the future, including providing security for sensitive areas, both military and private. This aerial version is one such robotic protector.

Small, but deadly, this security drone carries a pair of autocannons underneath its saucer-like body to attack intruders.

This scratchbuilt miniature could be used in a great many science fiction role-playing and table top miniature war games. The base measures 1 inch (25 mm) in diameter. The 28mm scale science fiction trooper miniature provides a size comparison.

Robotic drones will play important roles in the future. Here are some military drones for your consideration. (A 25-28mm scale miniature is included in the picture for scale reference.)

First, this small aerial recon drone is used to remotely survey active battlefields. It possesses a number of sensor systems to map the battlefield and acquire intelligence resources.

Once the recon drone has done its job in identifying possible enemy targets, these missile drones are dispatched on strike missions.

The drones are attached to bases that measure 1 inch (25mm) in diameter. Designed for use with 25-28mm scale war game miniatures.

Post Apocalypse Soldier Survivor 25mm Scale Game Miniature Figure
Filed under: Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse
Posted by: G R @ 5:28 pm

Welcome to the apocalypse! Our hero has managed to survive the first chaotic months of the zombie plague.

A bit worse for wear (his tattered clothing speaks to some of the tight spots he has survived in the post apocalyptic world), he carries an assault rifle. He also has a semi-auto pistol in a belt holster.

A small backpack carries all of his meager possessions. A small coil of rope hangs on his shoulder.

This 25 mm scale game figure could easily assume the role of a Player Character or NPC in many role-playing games and table top war games including post apocalypse, zombie infestation, science fiction, pulp action and horror genres such as Call of Cthulhu™.

Them! Attack of the Giant Radioactive Ants Miniatures for 15 to 28 mm War Games
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, 15-20 mm, Post Apocalypse, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 3:22 pm

The 1954 movie Them! was one of the best science fiction movies from the 1950s. Filmed in black and white, it followed the discovery of giant mutated ants that were the unintended result of early nuclear weapons testing in New Mexico. The expanding colonies threatened to take over the world. It was one of the first giant insect sci fi movies that appeared in the middle of the 20th century.

In the same vein, here are some giant ants to terrorize the denizens of your game world. First we have a group of worker ants. The one at the far right is emerging from the entrance to the underground colony.

Then there is the larger Queen ant!

Uh oh, our unlucky 25mm soldier has found himself confronted by several of the creatures!

Here are photos of the ants with a 15 mm scale science fiction soldier miniature.

These over sized monsters would be right at home in many science fiction, fantasy, pulp and post apocalyptic game worlds. In particular they would make for an exciting Halloween horror scenario!

Reptilian Alien Space Warrior 25mm Scale Miniature Game Figure
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 7:16 am

Not all alien species in the universe are peace loving.  Some make good combat warriors.

This warrior carries a submachinegun slug thrower.

His reptilian species comes from a planet with high levels of infrared light from the home system’s star. Thus he wears a hi tech set of goggles to enhance the infrared spectrum in the local environment.

This 25mm scale science fiction game miniature is mounted on a tech base that could be the deck plating of a starship.

H. P. Lovecraft Horror Miniature Colour Out of Space Monster
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 12:14 pm

This miniature creature is based on the German film “Die Farbe” which tells the H. P. Lovecraft horror story of “The Colour Out Of Space“.

Brought to Earth in a meteorite, this microscopic extraterrestrial life form slowly penetrates into the surrounding soil. In time, it begins to infect the local flora and fauna, causing all sorts of physical changes. The invader also causes severe mental aberrations in Terran life forms from the lowest insect level to humans.

Tiny bits of the life form (perhaps individual cells of a greater whole) slowly rise out of the earth, joining together to form the greater creature. The creature casts a unearthly color radiation that is not found within the normal human spectrum. (The movie directors chose to use a pinkish glow to represent the “colour”.) The eventual effects lead to victims crumbling into grey dust.

This handmade miniature attempts to show the alien life form as it begins to join together and rises out of the soil. The 25mm scale game miniature gives you a sense of scale. The base of the monster measures 1 inch (25 mm) in diameter.

This Lovecraftian horror can provide a true terror to confront your player characters in a Call of Cthulhuadventure. It can be used likewise in fantasy and science fiction scenarios as well.

Aerial Hunter Dungeon Monster 25-28mm Scale Miniature for Fantasy and Horror RPG Games
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters, Scratchbuilt

As they explore the dark caverns, the daring adventurers sense a movement just beyond the reach of their torchlight. Expecting to see something at ground level, they do not immediately see the large creature silently drifting toward them along shadowy recesses of the cavern’s roof.

At first glance, it’s body resembles a large rock which provides the creature with near perfect camouflage against the rocky cavern walls.

But as the monster closes in on its intended prey, the lower area splits open revealing it’s real danger, a huge mouth rimmed with large fang-like teeth! Suddenly, a long whip-like tendril shoots out from the now gaping mouth.

This tentacle-like “tongue” is tipped with a poisonous sting. A successful strike injects a powerful toxin which quickly paralyzes the victim who then is grasped by the prehensile tongue and drawn into the monster’s maw.

The 25-28mm figure gives you an idea of scale of this floating horror.

This unique handmade miniature stands about 2-3/8 inches (60mm) tall. The base measures 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) in diameter. It would be an interesting monster to have appear in a variety of role-playing game scenarios including fantasy, horror and science fiction games.

Scratch Built Miniature Robots for Science Fiction War Games in 25-28mm Scale
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 4:17 pm

In the future, robots will become common place and be designed for many tasks. Here are a few scratch built miniatures representing different robots. These “mechanical men” can be used in many science fiction gaming settings.

First, a couple of wheeled maintenance bots. These are employed in servicing various machinery or in providing menial assistance.

Here is a tracked military recon robot used for remote battlefield surveillance. Also useful in support of law enforcement services.

On a slightly higher tech level, here is a hover security robot and could be found in many settings including military, industrial and commercial. It uses antigrav pods to move over the ground surface. Each of its two arms ends in a different weapon.

These robots can be used with most 25 to 28 mm scale miniatures.

Faceless Fiend Lovecraftian Horror for Call of Cthulhu and Other Horror Adventures
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 12:55 pm

Something large stirs in the deep recesses of the underground tomb. Its shape seems to distort in the dim flickering torchlight, constantly shifting, expanding, contracting.

You shine your flashlight beam into the shadows and a scream catches in your throat as the creature is caught full in the electric light! This monstrosity was not born on this plane of existence!

Numerous horrific mouths cover the creature, each opening and closing, waiting to consume its next prey.  Even worse are the dozens of black, demonic eyes that dot the entire body. But what truly chills you is the realization that an alien intelligence hides behind each of the eyes. That and the sense of hunger!

The skeletal remains of its previous kill can be seen in its viscous gut.

Surely this is a creature born in nightmares!

This resin/plastic miniature monster stands about 1-3/4 inches (45 mm) tall. The base measures 2 inches (50 mm) in diameter.

The sculptor has really captured the sense of unworldly horror with this 25-28mm scale miniature. It can easily be used as a Lovecraftian horror in Call of Cthulhu™, an alien life form in any science fiction adventure, or a horrific dungeon dweller in fantasy game worlds.

Lovecraftian Horror Monster Worm for 25 to 30mm Miniature War Games
Filed under: Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 9:38 am

Something moves in the shadows, near the edges of  reality. Soft moist sounds of movement fill the air with dread. A large sinuous bulk lurches into the dim light of the dank chamber. Rearing back, the creature from beyond sanity rises upright, standing taller than a human.

Multiple eyes dot the creature’s body, constantly moving in their sockets, searching the surrounding area for something.  Maybe seeking food? Glistening snake-like tendrils spread from out of the monster’s maw, greedily grasping for its next meal.

This miniature figure could be right out of the Cthulhu Mythos stories by H. P. Lovecraft and his fellow horror writers. It would be quite useful in a Call of Cthulhu™ encounter and guaranteed to cause a loss of Sanity Points.

This game miniature stands about 2 inches ( 50 mm) tall. The base measures 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) in diameter. The 28mm star warrior figure is shown for scale comparison.
