15mm Mecha Roundup

The Animech Kickstarter for Rebel Minis has closed, and we did great.  60 backers, and just under $3000 USD in pledges.  Awesome, and thank you!

Now, for some other mecha being offered across the vast 15mm-verse.

First up are a neat pair from Josh Qualtieri at Zombiesmith.com

The Thanatos Stars Kraikon is a thick little design with a unique design feature I really like: power assist struts/legs on its back that help it right itself.  I dig the unorthodoxy.

Here's the link to buy it from Zombiesmith. There's some cool fluff (associated fictional description) at the link, as well.




This Thanatos Stars Ison Mecha is another neat design.  I like its lithe and lethal form.

Here's the link, again with more fluff.



Then, from out of nowhere, Eli and Gavin at 15mm.co.uk drop a great mecha announcement on us.  The Tavshar Archon, co-produced by Loud Ninja Games and 15mm.co.uk

It's an impressive design, and looks good in red.  There are a total of six (not four!) variants.  Awesome design, guys.

Click here for all the variants, and package deals











From GBS's The Ion Age line is another impressive design, the Afara Strider.









You can find individual and bundle deals here.

So, there you have it.  A total of eleven different variants, all fitting nicely in the "Two Inch Terror" ballpark of 15mm Mecha.

Spider Mech Painted By Jason Moore

Here's some more eye candy from Jason Moore of Micropanzer.com in support of the Rebel Minis Kickstarter effort:  Rise Of The Animechs.

The previous Scorpion Mech was shown in glorious detail here, at this previous post.

Here's a Wolf Mech with the gun turret (first stretch goal) mounted on its dorsal RUMV hardpoint.










Great stuff.  I particularly like the stand-off between the two mechs.

To pledge for the Animech Kickstarter (we're funded and past the fourth stretch goal), click here, or copy and paste the link below.

Scorpion Mech In Desert Colors, By Jason at Micropanzer

Here are some beautiful shots of a desert-schemed Scorpion Mech, rendered by the talented brush of Jason Moore, of Micropanzer fame.

This particular Scorp is being used in support of some Sahadeen raiders from Rebel Minis.









Very cool.

The Scorpion Mech is one of three Animechs currently being funded through a Kickstarter I'm a part of.

Do me a favor, click on the link, and come on in.

We're funded and past our third stretch goal, with the fourth one in easy reach.

Enjoy!

Best,
