Bought some Infinity minis, wanted some vehicles, transport, whatever to add to the terrain. Recommendations, besides GW stuff, please.

thanks

The GZG range, but can't recall who now makes it in the UK.

Eureka does in Australia, but shipping overseas is very expensive for resin products.

Wouldn't take much to turn that 8-Rad on the front page ( TMP link ) into a proper SF vehicle. Turret weapon swap, maybe update the tires…

Mako11, the GZG/Stargrunt line has a new home: TMP link
I think Eureka is selling through existing stock only.

Let's see…

There's Antenociti's G.O.T. range

That's just a few.

Those are some nice vehicles but I don't see any that IMO fit Infinity's anime styling all that well.
This hlj.com/product/MIGF35-652 is closer to the look I'd want… though with fewer rivets.

I'll add a general recommendation for Old Crow. I have some of those and they are very nice.

You can go with 1/35th scale vehicles.

They can be used for 28mm and are far cheaper than GW.

Plus you can convert them as you want.

geudens03 Aug 2011 3:49 a.m. PST

I bought the so called "Red Shirt Games NRAAV" from a toys chainstore (can't remeber the name) two months ago for 4 Euros. It came with some army men figures.

Renevent03 Aug 2011 6:08 a.m. PST

Also note that Eureka no longer carry the GZG range sadly….

So we here in Oz now have to import them :(

ramshackle games do a nice, low cost range though. they can also be painted up non…well ramshackle i guess ;)

I've been lusting after this baby…

auction

Just need a discount or an excuse…

evilleMonkeigh03 Aug 2011 8:12 a.m. PST

Just give in and go 15mm. You know you want to.

If you are going the fire-teams and vehicles level of game, then 15mm > 28mm.

At the Infinity level (independent figures, no vehicles per se) 28mm is the bestest…

LostPict Supporting Member of TMP03 Aug 2011 10:43 a.m. PST

I will wait until scale creep grows the 15mm lads to 1" tall…. ;-)

@geudens – I figured it was a readily available "Made in China" toy, somewhere.

Steve Oates from The Baggage Train has some nice sci-fi vehicles in 28mm size too. Often overlooked I think.

the-baggagetrain.com

He has some general APC's a couple of tanks and some walkers/mechs which are quite large.

The tanks are handily quite generic, so easy to do up to match differing forces.

Edit- I am sure he has more stuff than is showing on his site. So if anyone is interested, i would drop him an email.

I personally like Old Crow and Pig Iron. Too bad DLD isn't in production anymore – however, some of the Baggage Train items do look interesting.

Good tip on SecretWeaponMiniatures! Hadn't heard they are going to do full vehicles.

Anyhow, IMCO most G.O.T. vehicles fit fairly well with Infinity miniatures, as the latter aren't excruciatingly animeish (thankfully Corvus Belli didn't go that route!). There aren't too many of them tho as of yet.

Actually available real anime stuff (while fairly widely available from HobbyLink Japan for example) tends to be very heavily focused on the mecha plus the scale is of course all over the place when compared to ca. 28mm minis.

Chapter House make a humongous "Tau" walker at a stupendous price.

You'd be better off with a Khurasan dictator, which still works very nicely as a 28mm mech.
