25mm Sci-Fi Miniatures, Vehicles, and Gaming – links updated 09JUN2016

UPDATE:  I am going back through my blog entries fixing links and photos as well as editing things with new information as it becomes relevant.


I am not on the 15mm bandwagon. I love 25mm miniatures – the one true scale! Seriously, a few years back I had to choose.

I had 6mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 28mm, 1/56th, 1/48 and 30mm minis with a sore temptation to also venture into 40mm and 54mm. I decided that was too many scales since it translates into needing terrain in all and lots of duplication of effort. Time to consolidate – I settled upon 28mm as my target terrain scale and use any miniatures that look good with it. For the Sci-Fi stuff this mostly was a large collection of vintage 25mm lead minis bought for Traveller, legions of 30MM WOTC Star Wars, and a smattering of 28mm 21st century manufactured Sci-Fi minis. So the others all left as gifts to friends that had made other scale choices (scale freedom as guaranteed in the Bill of Rights). No regrets! Since then, 15mm Sci-Fi has made an impressive surge. I like what they look like in pictures, but in person and on the table, the exquisite level of the new sculpts is lost to me. Some like the fact that 15mm gives you more table real estate, but since my club and my personal gaming tables are 12′ x 6′ that is not a real issue. Added to that is the decreasingly effective, bifocal-bespectacled gamer that can not see to easily paint these Tiny Men. So the Little Men at my house don’t get much smaller than 25mm (two exceptions – one platoon of vintage Ral Partha Galactic Grenadiers and one BEF Rifle company of for early WWII FOW – update I ditched these too since 2011).
