Small 15mm Dune-inspired range (Spice Range) from MJ Figures: LINK
They look to be a very similar style to 15mm.co.uk’s Laserburn range.
Small 20mm (yes, 20mm!) Dune-inspired range (Sand Wars), also from MJ Figures: LINK And they do worms! Shai Hulud!!
Plus 20mm Sand Wars vehicles and buildings: LINK
Use the drop down menus from Product Ranges, then 15 or 20mm, to see them all. It’s a slightly odd set up.22/07/2015 at 15:50 #27940
MJ also do the Dark Alleys, Dark Corners 20mm range – LINK – I use the Vampire Guard armoured troops as Sardaukar.
And Elhiem do some 20mm sci-fi figures that would mix in well – LINK22/07/2015 at 16:06 #27944
Rebel Minis have always struck me as having a kind of “Dune” vibe to them. The Titan Marines would be great Sardaukar, and they have some neo-Arab units that, seem to have been designed to serve as gunned up Fremen. The GZG line would be good for House troops – the Kepi-clad FSE troopers would be superb as Atreides troops. And Antenocitis Workshop used to do some very interesting grav vehicles that would suit as Dune-ish suspensor tanks, but I haven’t checked what they’re keeping cast these days – if memory serves they cleared out a lot of their moulds and nixed a bunch of lines about two years ago.”
Oh, and Khurasan, if they ever come back online, has a line of semi-armored heavy troops that would be superb Harkonnens. I forget the name of the line but they’re a go-to “human bad guy” set shown with white head-and-shoulders helmets.22/07/2015 at 16:47 #27949
Are you thinking of the Control Battalion, Mr Average?22/07/2015 at 16:58 #2798423/07/2015 at 08:32 #28013
Elements of the Power Spike range were heavily influenced by Dune (I know this as I am the former owner/operator of Kremlin Miniatures and sent out the design briefs for the models). Check out the ornithopter, Commander Votan (Guild operative) and the Cyberian Death Commandos (Imperial/Harkonnen troopers). The range is now carried by Mick Yarrow Miniatures.23/07/2015 at 08:39 #28014
Also, Irregular Miniatures do Dust(sand)worms (I made the masters). You’ll find them in the 6mm Sci Fi listings, the big one is 26cm long!
I would also like to point out that MJs sandworm is actually a Graboid from the Tremors movie series.23/07/2015 at 09:54 #28015
Found this as well.23/07/2015 at 10:10 #28016
If you do go with 6mm then here is a link to a papercraft Spice Harvester. I’ve printed it out, but it’s a complex build so haven’t yet constructed one.23/07/2015 at 13:56 #28017
One could (and should) also add any or all of the Ion Age opus to the list. I’ve always felt that the Shia Khan would make great Tleilaxu or Guild troopers, but for the fact that neither the Bene Tleilax nor the Guild fight wars that way. Any of the human troops would be sweet Imperial, or perhaps Corrino house troops. And the vehicles on all sides are decidedly Dune-y.
