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.

Painted Miniature Abominable Snowman Yeti Monster in 25-28mm Scale
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 11:41 am

A large shadow moves in the swirling snow storm. Suddenly, a furred beast bursts from the white landscape, an inhuman roar crashes across the frozen land!

It is the mythical Abominable Snowman and he is very unhappy that you have dared to enter his domain

The creature’s coloration allows it to blend in with the snowy environment. Its natural camouflage makes it very difficult to detect the monster at any distance.
The Yeti possesses deadly claws on its hands and feet that are capable of inflicting severe damage. As seen in the pictures, the creature also has large dangerous teeth and it’s bite can easily shred clothing and body tissue. Even armor cannot hold up to repeated assaults by this powerful monster.
This creature is large and will tower over most 25-28 mm scale human figures. It stands about 1-7/8 inches (48 mm) to the top of its head. The base measures 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) in diameter.
The Yeti can appear in  many game settings. It could be used in fantasy, horror, science fiction, pulp action, and super hero role-playing adventures and table top miniature war games.

Dungeon Serpent Stalks the Unwary - A 25-28mm Scale Miniature for Fantasy and Horror Game Encounters
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 3:33 pm
Danger lies in the darkness! The dungeon serpent hunts the unwary adventurer.
These creatures slither among the dark chambers of underground dungeons and caverns. Their dark coloration allow them to be almost invisible in the shadows even in the presence of flickering torchlight. Only a very faint whispering noise made by their scaly bodies flowing across floors may alert a possible prey that he is being hunted.
Intelligent, these monsters are known to hunt in packs as well as solitary predators. When attacking, their mouths split open into four prehensile “lips” that grab their victim, pulling him into the gaping maw lined with poisonous fangs.
This miniature works well with 25 to 28 mm scale wargame figures. It is generic enough to be able to appear in a wide range of game settings including fantasy, horror, pulp and science fiction.

A Miniature Mi-Go the Fungi from Yuggoth from H. P. Lovecraft’s Classic Cthulhu Mythos in 28mm Scale
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 3:44 pm

Meet a Mi-Go, one of the alien races created by H. P. Lovecraft in his Cthulhu Mythos.

Hailing from the distant planet Yuggoth, the Mi-Go are thought to be based on the biology of a fungus as that is the closest it can be described by human’s limited understanding of the odd molecular-level differences found in the Mi-Go body. However, the Mi-Go possess advanced scientific knowledge and skills in tissue manipulation which allows them cast their own bodies in many forms. Here is one of the more common forms which appears to be crustacean in design. The bat-like wings allow the creature to travel freely through the aether between planets.
The mass of tentacle-like appendages on the head produce a range of light emissions which appears to allow the Mi-Go to communicate with others of its kind.
This game miniature is based on a 1-1/2 inch (38 mm) disk.The 25mm human figure is shown to give an idea of scale.
The sculptor has done a nice job of capturing the Mi-go’s alien appearance. Although the Mi-Go originate in horror fiction and are used in the Call of Cthulhu™ horror role-playing game, they could just as well appear as creatures in science fiction and fantasy game worlds.

Military Remote Recon Drone and Missile Drones for 25-28mm War Gaming
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm, Post Apocalypse, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 4:43 pm

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.
