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
and post apocalyptic game worlds
. In particular they would make for an exciting Halloween horror scenario

Something is slithering about in the dark corners of the laboratory! Soft squishy sounds come from the shadows.
What has our little mad scientist been creating under the full moon in time for Halloween? Some “trick” for the local children to discover when they come trick or treating at the doctor’s door?
Tentacled terrors to haunt the dreams of any sane person, that is for certain. Experimental Life Form 1 exhibits signs of high intelligence, just not necessarily anything that conforms to human standards. Multiple eye pods move about in seemingly uncoordinated ways, looking in different directions at the same time. Tentacles grasp at the air, seeking to make contact.
Experimental Life Form 2
is a bit less sophisticated, but no less alien
. These creatures
lack the obvious eyes of the first abomination
, but seem to move in response to some other stimuli, possibly body warmth. Tentacles
stretch out, touching everything in the vicinity, using a high sense of touch to explore their new world. Their skin erupts in oozing sores, filling the lab
with objectionable stench. The good doctor has thoughtfully provided a fresh zombie
as a treat for his new pets.
could pop up in any science fiction
or fantasy game world
. The mad scientist
figures in the photos are 25mm scale
for size comparison. But the critters also could be used as very large monsters
with 15mm scale miniatures

This six-man squad of modern soldiers is packing heat!
are outfitted with CBR
(Chemical Biological Radiation
to protect them against the unseen terrors of a modern battlefield
They wear full face respirator masks
include a semi-auto handgun
, Military Assault Rifles
, Sub Machine Guns
, and a Sniper Rifle
The detail in these small 15 mm scale miniatures
is very nice. Including the bases, they stand approximately 3/4 inches (20 mm) to the top of their heads. They would be right at home in a modern firefight
, a post apocalyptic wasteland
, or on a zombie hunt

Armed conflict moves across the stars! Who is tasked with maintaining peace among the human worlds? The Star Marines!
Here we have a 6-man squad
of Earth Marines
outfitted in vac suits
for action in the airless voids
of deep space
or on planets
in non-friendly atmospheres
are armed with energy rifles
feature a hard helmet
, life support back pack
, and soft skin vac suits
These 15 mm scale science fiction war game figures
stand approximately 3/4 inch tall (20 mm) from bottom of the base to top of the heads. The miniatures
have an outstanding amount of detail for a smaller scale.
