|15mm is perfect for maximizing your gaming space as well.|
One of the fun parts of 15mm scifi is that its so generic that you have the opportunity to create your own stories. I decided to base my army on an oppressive mega-corportation called Zark Industries. Zark Industries makes everything from diapers to death rays and its interests span the galaxy. On worlds that populate the Fringe, Zark Industries uses its power like a club - standing in for local government and militaries. Zark Industries brokers no interference from local populations who may oppose their plans and routinely pacify rebel groups that take up arms against them.
The primary troops are Genetically Optimized Occupation/Neutralization Squads - or G.O.O.N Squads. These clone grown troops obey without question and fight to the end without the burden of a conscience.
|Heavily armored and wielding state-of-the-art weaponry, GOON Squads form the backbone of the army.|
|The Army is commanded by a local Chairman. Her support unit is even more heavily|
armored than the rest of the army.
|The heaviest weapons are incorporated into drone units.|
|Mobile Suppression Walkers allow for crowd control in built up cities.|
|I used several pieces from the AT-43 range to make heavy weapon variants.|
|Polecat Patrol Vehicles lead rapid response teams.|
|A Mammoth Class Command Truck acts a mobile headquarters from which to|
coordinate Zark Industries nefarious plans.
|The Control Ark is meant to crush all resistance with little regard to the consequences.|
I think my next project in 15mm is going to be a rebel group to fight the evil corporate interests of Zark Industries. I've already got a bunch of troops for it, and 15mm scifi paints up so quickly. I know a lot of people are daunted by the scale, but if you aren't painting troops that have to reference historical units then you can really crank stuff out. Most of what I've done here with the infantry is just basecoats with an ink wash for shading. Plus, 15mm is so cheap that there really isn't an excuse to try it out yourself.
