Not specifically, but there are some interesting options if you don’t mind doing a little repurposing. For example, there are some very interesting shiplike vehicles from Onslaught’s “Stygian” range that might suit the purpose with a little modification.
I think you might be on to something there. I think most of their range are a similar size however, as they’re intended as Epic proxies… I’ll have a look over the range and see what jumps out at me. I think I may have some Eldar BFG lying around somewhere too which may suit?
At one point a few years ago, Brigade Models stated they were intending to expand the Aeronef range with Martian airships “in the coming year” (not their exact words, but it was something like that). Obviously those never materialised, though I don’t blame them considering all the many projects they have ongoing in parallel. I still remain hopeful that they’ll get around to it someday.
There’s definitely nothing in their current range, and I haven’t found any mention on their blog or various forums. Funnily enough googling for terms like ‘Brigade’, ‘Aeronef’ and ‘Martian’ brings up this topic on TWW as the first response But I agree with you about the parallel projects. They seem to constantly be pumping out a wide variety of kit for nearly their entire catalogue. There’s very little going unloved on their web-store.
Did Wessex Games ever produce their Martian aeronef? I remember using them in a game we ran (Salute maybe?) but don’t recall if they ever made it into production
Not that I’ve seen. I’ll happily be proven wrong however?
Fantastic work mate!
I’m madly hanging out for these to (finally) be released in 1/72, I’ve got 18 tracks coming my way 🙂
More vehicle stowage!
I recently got some barrels and crates from you to load up my trucks, but I could do with cluttering up some of my armour 🙂
Fantastic! Easily one of my favourite Eldar armies out there 🙂
Fantastic work Piers!
They are definitely a thing of beauty.
What Zippyfusenet and Victoria said. For me it’s a Venn diagram. I enjoy all aspects of research, history, painting, model and terrain building, playing, socializing, story telling and world building. Gaming Nirvana is when they all overlap.
But I could only pick one, so I went with The World Building component. I’ve been working on my own Sci-Fi conflict on the first Human colony of Eden, and am thoroughly enjoying creating the different powers, their geography, and their TO&E.

Ah, the wonders of technology…18/09/2017 at 02:16 in reply to: The Unnamed Legion (3mm scale Epic Armageddon "Heresy" Proxies) #71762
I really like the Duchy of Crescente! Very similar to a Russ I painted up a while back, just with black turret… Maybe I’ll have to give it a shot!
Ooh, free stuff? And I have to read? Hmm… Sounds like hard work!
Right, I had no idea this existed.
Fantastic! Look nice and playable, while still being interesting. The variety in builds is cool too!
Well, if you can put that aside for a minute… Fallout 4 is fantastic, and well worth a look.
It’s a bit more of a traditional FPS than Fallout 3, and a significant departure from the historical top down RPG of 1, 2 & Tactics.
I’ve been eyeing off some of these guy’s games for some time now. Are there any you’d particularly recommend?
Would they translate to miniatures well?
I’m honestly surprised no-one has mentioned Fallout 4 yet!
Seriously mate, you can pick it up for X-Box One for a steal (it’s 2 years old) and there’s plenty of DLC if you want (that adds flavour, but isn’t needed).
It can be first, or third person. There’s a strong RPG element, with hours and hours of story options. There’s a base/settlement building mechanic, and several major factions you can choose to ally with, or wipe out.
Hmm… Curiouser and curiouser.
Hmm, I do quite like your infantry range…
Can you do me a favour and line up three of your heavy armour suits (whatever they’re called) on a 40mm x 30mm rectangle? Feel free to draw the box on paper! 🙂
Nice work again sir. Those cardboard buildings are they meant as Ork dwellings?
Those are the cardboard buildings from the Epic 40k Titan Legions box.
Easily one of my favourite Epic Eldar armies out there! Fantastic work as always mate.
Flat cut clippers for me, usually does the job!
Sometimes it takes some gentle application with a blade to flatten them off, but after a few ‘slips’ I’ve started using my dremel with a sanding head fixed to the bench.
Fantastic work mate! Looks like a really simple colour scheme, that you’ve smashed out of the park.
What size bases have you used for the Onslaught infantry in your last post?
Further to my initial suggestion, GZG have a nice range for exactly this purpose: Ground Zero Games
Hmmm… I do have a very large 20mm modern project in various stages of completion.
Don’t you just stifle and ignore the editor? Oooops, wrong forum….
Did that actually stop him taking your money though? 😛
I was going to suggest the Brigade range, but they are solid resin.
As an alternative, I’d suggest investing in a whole heap of sci-fi ‘widgets’ to decorate rooftops, making your existing Middle Eastern buildings appear futuristic.
- Moisture traps
- Satellite dishes
- Landing pads
- Flurescent signs (check out the various ‘made for Infinity’ ranges out there)
These can be made on separate bases, and dropped in and around your buildings to easily change their tone, without making them unusable for historical scenarios.
I feel like I have more of a connection to companies that are visible on forums and social media.
But then on the flip side, there are a couple of companies that I have decided not to buy from based on their public interactions. I’ve been given the distinct impression that the owner is a ‘douche’, and I don’t have any need for their products. No matter how nice and shiny they are.
I keep an eye on the period and it’s games, as it’s something I’m vaguely interested in…
But then there are lots of periods I’m ‘vaguely interested’ in
If/when I tip my toe into some Naval-Gazing, it’s more likely to be modern, WW2 at the earliest.
The game is in the early playtesting stages; there have been a few photos and comments on the Ironfist Publishing Facebook page from the author and his gaming group.
I’ve harassed the main author, Piers Brand, a number of times about a release date, and received variations of ‘when it’s ready’ 😛
Well done mate! Well deserved win 🙂
I am so confused here.
Fantastic work mate!
Wonder how the rules would shape up for 6mm?
What rules were you using which supported fire teams in sci fi?
My forces were originally built for Dirtside II, where Infantry ‘elements’ are used. An element is generally equal to what is now a fireteam, with most APCs carrying 2 elements.
More recently I’ve been playing Strike Legion, where Infantry squads are built up of ‘teams’, which translate nicely using my fireteam bases. But I’ve also used my Sci-Fi with Future War Commander, Tomorrow’s War, and my own rules; all of which can have infantry represented as fireteams.
Are you adding the steel to the existing bases or re-basing?
Little column A, little column B.
I’m adding the steel sheet to the bottom of my Armour and other vehicles that are already based on the 30mm x 40mm bases. Some of my smaller vehicles such as scouts and APCs are on 20mm x 30mm bases, these will be re-based.
Rather than re-base infantry, I’m starting again. Just putting together an order with H&R now for some of their new infantry. The old infantry stands are being phased into semi-retirement, only surfacing when I really need extra boots.

I’m in the process of revising my infantry basing also. I have modern Middle East and Sci-Fi in 6mm.
Traditionally, I’ve based 4-6 infantry on a 20mm x 30mm base, with infantry support weapons either on a 20mm or 30mm square base with 2 – 3 infantry. This has been gaming at a 1:1 scale, where each base has represented a Fireteam.
The idea of higher level gaming where 1 base represents anything other than the actual number of troops represented, was anathema to me. But I’ve found that as I age (mature/become more jaded) the idea is becoming more and more enticing, to where I now commonly build projects on the basis of 1 base represents a platoon or even a company.
I’m now basing my infantry platoons as if they were a full strength squad (8 – 12 figures) on the same bases as my MBT, 30mm x 40mm. This means that an Infantry company (3-4 bases) now takes the same table space as an Armoured Squadron (3-4 bases), and allows enough room for scenic items without making the base too crowded.
I use 2mm MDF bases from Sarissa Precision for my 6mm collection, and am in the process of upgrading them to have flexible steel added to allow easy storage/transport on magnetic sheets.
Well, I’ll get the ball rolling.
I’m definitely keen, and would say my areas of ‘expertise’ are:
- 20mm Moderns – Post World War 2
- 6mm Moderns – Post World War 2
- 6mm Sci-Fi
- Space Ships
- Terrain to go with above
Nope, no errors on this end either.
Currently sorting out repainting my Battle in a Box Rivers to be brown with a hint of green! The blue was a bit too stark on table.
Absolutely do! Love me a bit of Full Thrust, and have sizeable ESU, Oceanic Union, Pirate, and UNSC fleets from GZG 🙂
To the OP: fantastic resource. I always enjoy reading Modern Force: Orgs, even for periods I don’t game. I feel it gives me a better grounding for my own fictional ‘Imagi-Nation’s.
Good to see you’ve moved away from the single based madness! 😛
Fantastic work all around. Good to see 6mm getting some love.
