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!

Creepy Crawling Abominations with Tentacles Halloween Horrors 25mm
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, 15-20 mm, Post Apocalypse, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 8:34 am

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.


These creatures could pop up in any science fiction, horror or fantasy game world.  The mad scientist and zombie 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.

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!

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.
