    Loud Ninja Games (who previously did a Kickstarter for space raptors) have just announced their latest kickstarter, The Yan’Drassi Invasion.

    As someone who thinks there is a lack of alien armies in 15mm, and a fan of the games which inspired these minis, I am very excited for this kickstarter.

    I backed… some really great stuff there! Can’t wait to see it funded, since it’s the first day and already over 30%!

    Some really nice designs there.
    The little guys look like a hoot, be prepared for a lot of sqeeky voices once they hit the tables.
    One thing I really like is the fact that, although you can see what game inspired them, they are not just not-Halo figures but an original design.
    That beeing said I will be scouting around for a good master chief figure 😉

    Yes, I agree. There is a fair bit of flack directed at unlicensed “not-x” minis, but I think these ones aren’t just Halo with the serial numbers filed off, but a riff on the same ideas.

    Deserved “flack” IMO but variations on a theme (as opposed to overt IP theft) is a sign of being inspired to make your own artistic interpretation.  I wish I had a ounce of art in my body – but not there.  

     

    Nice work.

      Ooh, 15 mm aliens (Not Aliens, aliens, to clarify) – okay, I would like another company of aliens to complement my Khurashan ones in 15 mm.  I am down for $23.  Definitely inspired by but not “not-<insert copy cat name>” figures.

     

    Thanks for pointing these out.

     

    Of course I just blew the last of the August hobby budget with this…

    Gracias,

    Well I’m in for
    2 Neek squads
    1 Tavshar squad
    1 Tavshar Prime
    And
    1 Horgosi squad once they’ve been unlocked.

    Anybody know when the Clear Horizons Helldiver power armor is going to be ready, still looking for a Master Chief.

    I’m going to be using the Critical Mass Games heavy drop infantry for SPARTANS, I already had some from another project (where I didn’t use them because they are 18mm foot to eye, which is actually a good size for a SPARTAN).

    Eli showed one of his early sketches for the $5500 strech goal the Shigar dropship with a warning that a lot could change between this and the final product, never the less I hope they make it.

    Here are a couple of in progress sculpts that were posted as an update.

    Apparently these will be used to create the armour which will then be cast up and be used to make the actual models.

    Seems if you wanted to do Mass Effect in 15mm, it just got a bit easier.

    Good news for us European backers

    UK AND EU BACKERS WILL HAVE THEIR REWARDS SHIPPED FROM SCOTLAND!!!

    Exciting news!

    I have arranged with our associates at 15mm.co.uk to have the rewards for UK/EU backers sent from their facilities in Scotland. While this will not reduce our shipping costs, it will reduce the instances of those nasty customs fees.

    I hope this helps with any concerns from our friends overseas.

    -Eli

    Last time not only did I get to pay import tax, I can live with that, but they also charged me €12 for the privilege of having my package opened by customs.
    Having them sent from within the EU greatly reduces the chances of that happening which means more money to spend on figures :-))

    For those of you who haven’t seen it somewhere else, here’s the concept for the Gun Skimmer stretch goal.

    Had to cut back my support to nominal. Life… it happens… still want to see how these do. Great figures in a great (15 mm) size but not in my budget at this time – all that reality stuff…

    Hey all!

    Thanks for the support! We are at 100% now and still plenty of time to grow.

    Glenn, don’t sweat it. We’ve all been there and your interest and support through chat and spreading the word is as good as gold as far as I am concerned. The Yan’drassi will be there when you are ready for them.

    Hey all!

    So, we are at 100% and that means we are a go. We’ve got a lot of time left in this campaign and that means on to stretch goals.

    The first stretch goal is the Horgosi, the heavy shock troops of the Yan’drassi. They will be added to the project if we reach $3000.USD

    If you haven’t checked out the Yan’drassi Invasion Kickstarter, head on over here – link

    Here is an update in the Tavshar and Neek sculpts.

    That’s right Stroezie,

    The Horgosi are unlocked and now available to add to your pledge. We’re getting updated sculpts as the days tick by so keep an eye out or cool updates as they come in.

    Yeah saw that, nice stuff, reality intervened and I had to drop my two current KS back down to $1 and 2 GBP with no reward which included this one. Sigh.

    Hey all!

    For those following the Kickstarter, we’re down to our last five days. We’ve done really well in this campaign but there is still time to push it on to bigger and better things.

     

    Thanks for the support,

    Hey folks,

    We’re into the last few days on this project – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/485545784/the-yandrassi-invasion-new-15mm-scifi-alien-force

    We have come a long way in creating this new alien force for 15mm science fiction gamers.
