Robot Warrior 28mm Scale Miniature for Science Fiction Tabletop Wargames Including Stargrave and Five Parsecs From Home

Advances in artificial intelligence has enabled the creation of independent non-organic life forms such as this robotic warrior. Leaps in “artificial” cortex systems allow the new generations of NOSI (Non-Organic Sentient Individual) to be completely self-contained and capable of forming their own personality, thoughts and motivations. These “individuals” are generally granted all the rights and responsibilities of organic sentients.
 
This miniature has been customized and kitbashed from various 28mm-scale components.
The NOSI can be introduced in many science fiction role-plating games and table top wargames including Stargrave™ and Five Parsecs From Home™. They can represent player characters as well as NPCs.

Armed Frontier Colonists in 28mm Scale for Science Fiction RPGs and TTGs Like Stargrave, Traveller and Five Parsecs From Home

Colonizing a new planet is not for the weak. In most instances it means long years of toil on the frontier of an untamed world. Sometimes colonists face aggressive native species; sometime the danger comes from age old clashes brought within the human community. New colony worlds can also become the target for roving space pirates intent on raiding small colonies for valuable plunder. The need for basic defense is common.
 
Often the struggling settlements possess only low-tech small arms because of the cost of importing and maintaining higher-tech weapons. In times of trouble, this group of colonists carries an assortment of slug throwers from handguns to shotguns.

 
 
I chose to paint the figures with muted colors. The head coverings and clothing accents are painted in a similar color to suggest the characters belong to a particular family, clan or community.
 
 
These 28mm-scale miniatures are kitbashed from models by different manufacturers. They could be used in a variety of science fiction role-playing and table top miniature games including Stargrave™ and Five Parsecs From Home™.

Legion Against Terran Expansion LATE Alien Warriors 28mm Miniatures For Stargrave Five Parsecs From Home and Other Science Fiction Table Top and RPG Games
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm, All contents including pictures Copyright 2010-2024, Scratchbuilt

As interstellar flight became available, Earth’s inhabitants journeyed beyond the confines of their home solar system. Most contact with new sentient species went smoothly and with little conflict. Unfortunately, the expansion sometimes fell short of noble intentions. Some Terran individuals, groups and governments brought with them age-old problems. Political interests, religious beliefs, racial/species bias, commercial greed and more caused friction in some interactions.

The League Against Terran Expansion (LATE) is a loose affiliation of diverse sentients who have banded together to try to stop the spread of Terrans in the galaxy. Mostly the members are individuals who harbor grievances against Humans.
More tenacious than organized, the tactics frequently involve hit and run attacks on smaller targets. Armaments tend toward the lower tech levels, although scavenged higher tech gear will make an appearance when available.

These plastic 28mm scale game miniatures are kit-bashed from multiple manufacturers. They can be useful in many science fiction games including Stargrave™ and Five Parsecs From Home™.

Sometimes you need to board another spaceship in the void of space. Or maybe you have to conduct a salvage mission on a world with an inhospitable atmosphere. You just need to don your vac suit to get on with the job at hand.
These three crew members are wearing light weight vac suits. The suits are orange for better visibility in darkened or obscured environs. Each suit has a scratch built environmental backpack providing basic life support.
The pilot carries a laser pistol. The technician holds a datapad and tool. The security officer is armed with a power rifle.

Cargo Handling Robots for 25-28mm Science Fiction Miniature Table Top Games
Filed under: General, Science Fiction, 25-28 mm, All contents including pictures Copyright 2010-2024
Posted by: G R @ 10:53 am
So, you are the captain of a small starship. You earn part of your revenue by moving cargo between planets. Consider adding some Cargo Bots to your crew.
 
 
 
These lower-tech robots can simplify the job of loading and unloading cargo, particularly for smaller vessels. Once given their instructions, they can be left on their own to complete the job while you and your organic crew perform higher priority assignments.
 
 
They are also very useful in retrieving cargo from derelicts being salvaged (or by the unscrupulous space pirate, to secure newly “liberated” cargo).
 
 
These game miniatures stand about 1-1/8 inches (28 mm) tall, including the base.

Warbots: Robotic Death Units for 25 to 28mm Scale Science Fiction Miniatures Wargaming
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 1:01 pm
Warfare has always resulted in technological advances being introduced to the battlefield. The advent of artificial intelligence allows for the creation of autonomous mobile “warriors” to be used in combat roles.
Here are a few battlefield robots, or “warbots“, ready for your 25-28mm scale table top and role-playing miniatures games. In addition to battlefield combat missions, these units are used in perimeter security roles for strategic installations.
The WB132 Warbot is a wheeled gun robotic soldier fielding a single large caliber weapon. It is commonly referred to as “Cyclops” because of its singular sensor mounted in the unit’s “head”.
Another wheeled warbot, the WB133 is based on a quad-wheeled chassis. Nicknamed “Wardog“, the WB133 features a single large caliber turret gun. Numerous sloped and angled armor plates protect the unit’s body.
Finally, we have the WB134 which uses an advanced anti-grav propulsion system. This allows this warbot greatly extended maneuverability over a wide range of battlefield terrain. The nearly soundless propulsion has caused the unit to be dubbed “Ghost” for its ability to move silently, appearing without warning from smoking battlefields. Its firepower comes from a dual-barrel energy weapon.
