15mm Sci-Fi Neo Stalin Federation Platoon.....

....plus transport.

 28mm Games Workshop Valkyrie posing as a 15mm transport (it will eventually have 15mm DOE gunships for support) for my NSF platoon using Khurasan federal figures, there's talk about the new power in the NSF and it's expansion into the cosmos....more to come and the NSF like it big and loud!

The colour used is vallejo Russian green (rare paint now, so rare they don't make it any more), still trying to go with the minimalist palette for regular forces.....

Seriously but lately my awful picture taking and my funk are getting to me but here are some pictures I apparently took.......

  7. Moscow is most pleased!!!
    Vallejo only changed the name of Russian Green. It is now called "Camo Olive Green" but still has the same part number.

    Good stuff! Keep 'em coming!

  12. Looks good Fran, the Gunship works really well at your 15mm scale!

  14. What a great looking force. You keep me wanting to switch (or add) to 15mm gaming.
    Speaking of which, do you ever get to game with these forces you show us?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like these a lot Fran. Now that I've ventured into the 15mm realm I have a better appreciation for them. Did you make that display map? If so that is brilliant my man!

    ReplyDelete
  16. It is looking good. I would say that the transport is something worth using the rarest of the rare paints on.

  17. nice work Fran such a pitty that Vajello changed the paint. seems like a stupid idea if you ask me... anyway those soviets look ready to beat people to a pulp for the people :-)

  18. Beautiful work, Generalissimo!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Looks "Proper" to me Brother, with that 32MM model used as an appropriate scale for the 15MM force shown. It works.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Look at that epic-ass space ship thing!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Nice one mate. The mix of scales works very well. It gives it a great platoon lift capability. Bit of a Martini Moment " Any time, any place, any where!"

    ReplyDelete
  22. Just checked, you're right... those BASTARDS!

  24. Interesting colour; but I like it. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Very nice! and the valkyrie works great in a 15mm scale. I like the new blog look- and the quote at the top, one of my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nice, the red stars are a nice touch

    ReplyDelete
  27. Brilliant. Awesome looking army.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice work mate, love the command group. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great job Fran, you will be pleased to know Vallejo still holds stocks of Russian Green in NZ...Its the end of the world don't you know.

    Model on!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very good work Fran. The drop ship looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Job's a good 'un, Fran... as usual!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love seeing you paint in larger scales Fran and the ship looks smashing. Now snap out of that funk you silly man or I'll send someone over to tickle your arse with a feather.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Cracking work Fran, they look great!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great looking force the Valkyrie fits in with them quite well.

    ReplyDelete
  35. they look great and the valkyrie matches in well

    ReplyDelete
  36. Figures and ship look top notch. Being still in a semi funk myself all I can say is I hope you feel better soon. Maybe thrashing Ray at game would help.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That transport looks great, Fran.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Very nice!

    It's a shame they don't make the Russian green anymore. How the hell are you supposed to play out the original Red Dawn in minature?

    ReplyDelete
  39. These look absolutely tremendous and the gunship just seems to fit perfectly. Making me think about another project now!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love when you go sci fi, Lurk!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks good, I have some Russian Green, should I put it on e-bay LOL

  42. Since we only ever see you paint 15mm it is amazing what you can do on the larger scales here mate! Amazing! Great work on it, very clean paint job on a large model! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  43. A great paint work, Fran; very nice force.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would love a space marine set for decorations, unfortunately I can't paint to save my life.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They look pretty incredible!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the glossy armour on these guys. Actually, the hull of the Valkyrie looks pretty much in scale with the 15s...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great figs, love the minimal colours, its really working a treat for you. That Valk actually looks in scale now!

    I've wanted to do 15mm SciFi for ages. Next year we'll see if I can prise the Lad away from Blood Bowl and Vikings for a little while - I'll definitely be showing him your efforts as a demonstration of the awesomeness that be be had :-)

    What rules are you going to use?

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's brill Fran! :)

  49. Well, after 60 comments it's hard to chime with anything other than a "Holy crap!", but there it is. As always you continue to humble and inspire equally.

  51. To be honest:

    The Valkyrie totally fits into this whole Scenery. It probably needs to be converted a bit, but it could act as some kind of Transall or C-130 as those units also drop masses of paratroopers (around 30 or so ;-D) Great stuff!
