We are very pleased to bring you a veritable barrage of reinforcements for many of our most popular 15mm sci fi ranges.

Government Power Armour

First we have three new codes for our popular End Times Post-Apocalyptic range. The dreaded Army of the Government uses their advanced tech -- power armour and energy weapons -- and proper military tactics to destroy ravager and mutant forces many times their number.

Supersoldier Warlord

But they have redoubtable foes, such as the huge Supersoldier Mutant warlords, who lead bands of mutants, and sometimes road outlaws as well, on campaigns of conquest or pillage, the strongest, toughest and most cunning of their kind.

Do not feed the Gutter Gophers

Lurking in the sewers of the dead cities, and in tunnels of their own construction in the broader world, are the Gutter Gophers, hideous hairless creatures that stalk the night, poisoning and dragging off their victims. These models are our first resin small-sized figurines, and come in five poses.

Sepulvedan Resistance Set 2

Moving on to our straight 15mm sci-fi range, we are very pleased to bring you more troops for the Sepulvedan Resistance Fighters. Here is a pack of four new poses, including a SAW gunner. All are dressed in the flak vest of the Resistance.

Sepulvedan Resistance Mortar Team

The Resistance also has obtained some heavier firepower with "liberated" Control Battalion mortars. This pack contains two mortar teams.

Lhurggs with giant electric knives

Next we have the savage alien tribesmen, the Lhurggs. These creatures love their simple Huk-Huk sword above all weapons, and certainly more than the cheap disposable blasters they carry to give themselves some firepower as they charge in with the sword. But once they have used up all the energy in the blaster, often by firing it into the air, they toss it off and get stuck in with the Huk-Huk, which is like a giant electric carving knife. There are four new poses in the set of eight models.

Lhurggs with satisfyingly loud device

The Lhurggs also make, often from found items, a type of crude mortar called a spike mortar. Sometimes two Lhurggs crew a single mortar, but other times only one creature will crew each weapon, so we have organised the pack into two different crew and two mortars, and you can choose which arrangement you prefer.

Felid Pouncer Launcher

The Felids are our most popular alien range and so they now have some heavier infantry firepower as well, with the Pouncer Portable Missile System. The set includes two Pouncer launchers and two gunners.

Wanted: Dead

Finally for the 15mm Sci Fi new releases are the next set of DPLS passangers Alien bounty hunters, not Sanctioned Non-Humans at all, so it takes some playing with the ship's computer to even get them onboard! But these serious-minded hombres have places to go and people to find, so they are profitable passengers. The set is of five different alien bounty hunters.

Imps

Our Eldritch Horror range, Little Carinthia, gets its share of new models as well, starting with the malicious little imps of the earthly demon lord, Great Ba-He-Mot (sometimes called "Behemoth"). What these diminutive cyclopses lack in strength they make up for in numbers and malice.

Joisey Devils

Far mightier and more malevolent creatures emerge from the pit when Ba-He-Mot stirs, such as his closest servants, the Chosen of Ba-He-Mot. These pitiless winged demons range far and wide reconnoitering the world at large for the Worm Goat even as he slumbers, such as one loosed in the Jersey pine barrens hundreds of years ago. The pack contains two different Chosen demons.

Pitiless Pit Fiends

Similar to the Chosen but not wearing the mark of Ba-He-Mot on their face are the Pit Fiends, worhippers of the Fell One who have been granted immortality in exchange for eternal service. They lead the imps on their nightly excursions, but unlike the Imps they tower over mortal men. The pack contains two different Pit Fiends.

Your mohawk cannot save you

Here's a look at a Chosen of Ba-He-Mot next to a human, to give some impression of their size.

Deep Ones

Look away from the woods (if you dare) to the shoreline of Little Carinthia, and you may spy a weird new threat, risen from the sea to prepare the world for the coming of the Octopus God, the Deep Ones, fishmen who rise from the shoreline, stinking of the murk, unblinking and terrifying. The pack is twelve Deep Ones in six poses.

OG Robot

Last but not least, our Planet 15 range of B movie sci-fi gets a boost, the dreaded OG Robot of the little green Martian, who shoots lasers from his eyes (literally) and whose Electro-Fists can "tear down a house in seconds!"

All available now! Go to the link below, which is a gateway to our sci fi, fantasy and horror ranges.

Wow, great stuff! I love the power armor troops!

jpattern207 Mar 2012 7:57 p.m. PST

Wow!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: If I didn't already have so much invested in 28mms, I'd be all over these 15mms.

darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP07 Mar 2012 8:03 p.m. PST

Yeah, but what have you done for me lately?

(Other than threaten my bank account?)

Holy crapola…! Guess i gotta put another order in, maybe I'll mail it to work so the wife doesn't get suspicious…

Richard Gaulding Inactive Member07 Mar 2012 8:59 p.m. PST

Holy . . .

Placing order tomorrow. Need more resistance fighters, of course, and I've been meaning to get some Lhurgg.

ski2060 Inactive Member07 Mar 2012 9:00 p.m. PST

Gah! If only that Felid missile launcher was out 2 weeks ago!
Oh well, I'll get it with my next order.

Maybe the new Fed tanks, AFV, and dropships will be out by then ;)

All magnificent, and not a single Jasmine Throne item amongst 'em! <heavy sigh>evil grin


Outstanding once again, Jon. You da man!evil grin

I love all the demon offerings that Jon is putting out. Great for use in multiple scales.

I don't suppose we could see a pic of the imps next to a 28mm figure?

A very nice set of new releases.

I especially like the Bounty Hunters, Fishmen, and Resistance Fighters.

"All magnificent, and not a single Jasmine Throne item amongst 'em! <heavy sigh>".

I know how you feel. Nary an extraterrestrial in a red spacesuit, with silver helmet, breathing oxygenated green liquid, while skulking about just outside his UFO with a futuristic-looking machine pistol; SHADO Moonbase Girls; SHADO Moonhopper crews, or Mobile/Security Troopers, or SHADO HQ personnel, and their consorts either, sadly…..

Jon is secretly boosting the economy by forcing gamers to work more hours or get better jobs to feed their Khurasan habit.

Gunner Dunbar Supporting Member of TMP07 Mar 2012 10:40 p.m. PST

Awesome job Jon, and I just put in an order, damn, those power armour figs look like a good start to convert some 15mm SM, any chance of getting the fishmen with melee weapons and light body armour (fantasy style rather than SF)? the Lhurgg are cool, I could use some sword weilding Kroot, and tha bounty hunters are excellent, lots of lovely stuff.

Etranger Inactive Member07 Mar 2012 10:48 p.m. PST

And you've just processed my last order too……GRRR


Ah well, payday is only another week away. I wonder if there's anything still in the paypal account. grin

john lacour Inactive Member07 Mar 2012 11:57 p.m. PST

i'm gonna get those deep ones to use in my lizardman blood bowl team! use as the skinks. awsome.(still waiting for the doe).

Zaheer Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 12:27 a.m. PST

Well. I think I will have to add some of these to my order if it's at all possible…

SpaceJacker Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 3:04 a.m. PST

I thought I deserved a break, but now I need those PA troops… And the Lhurggs.. It never ends! ;)

steve atkinson Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 3:55 a.m. PST

hello bankruptcy .

Samulus Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 4:40 a.m. PST

Have you thought about arranging to get a stockist in the UK? I absolutely love your stuff but whilst the postage is fair the customs and opening charges we get here are mind-blowing, they've only seemed to bother to start to apply them in the past 6 months or so.
Loving the power armour, I don't know what army they will be yet, but I'm buying them.

rvandusen08 Mar 2012 5:14 a.m. PST

Wow! fantastic. I was wondering when the Deep Ones would arise from the depths. The demons are also a must have. They are menacing, yet with a 16th Century painting channeled through a 1970s made for TV movie feel!

The blind sewer creatures are great in that they fit so many genres. Are they living beneath New York City in 2012? Are they creeping through that derelict starship's waste disposal unit? Can Conan encounter them in the deserts of Stygia?

CATenWolde08 Mar 2012 5:32 a.m. PST

Will the Government troopers be getting the full treatment with command and heavy weapons?

Kev134008 Mar 2012 6:10 a.m. PST

Yup UK customs and 'handling charges are killer, which is why I only order £18.00 GBP worth at a time to keep below the threshold.

These new releases means I need to make another 4 or 5 orders!!!

Good stuff Jon! Government troops first I think!

Cheers,

Kev

mxconnell Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 6:32 a.m. PST

Wow! Wow! Wow!

You know, for a man who often comments that his entire life is abound packing shipments to customers, releases like this say "I don't need to sleep or eat either, please make me pack orders 24-7".

Releases of this size and variety, how can a 15mm fan NOT find something here that's a must buy!

Amazing! Order going out today!

We like to complain. It's human nature. grin

TeknoMerk08 Mar 2012 7:47 a.m. PST

WOW! So many choices and so little time & money. I just have to get some of these for my post-apocalypse and Sci-Fi settings.

Jojojimmyjohn Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 9:18 a.m. PST

Just in time for payday! Sending order in soon. Any chance the "Great Enemy" line will be getting it's own reinforcements soon?

Checks is in around the 20th, should I just sign it over to you?

Khurasan – i name thee wicked !!

I've just started collecting 1920's Pulp figures for 'horror/pulp' games, and then you do this to me.

Seriously, great mini's, and i agree with everyone you should probably be marked with a wallet health warning.

Now, just get those Kark's out and i'm done for. :)

Ssshh… there, there. It'll only hurt for a little while.

John Leahy08 Mar 2012 10:54 a.m. PST

Well, it's pretty obvious that Khurasan has become one of the most prolific and certainly demonstrated that they are a top tier manufacturer of 15mm scifi figs. The new releases are great!

Thanks,

John

I'm seeing those Government power armor showing up as humanoid aliens in my scifi.

BlackWidowPilot Supporting Member of TMP Fezian08 Mar 2012 2:04 p.m. PST

Oh, yeah, for all you 28mm Call of Cthulhu fans who may not have figured it out, you can use these 15mm Deep Ones as juvenile Deep Ones in 28mm… just sayin'…evil grin

Hell, I may use them as-is for 1/72 scale sci-fi (Starguard) as "The Locals"…evil grin

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 5:29 p.m. PST

Any chance the "Great Enemy" line will be getting it's own reinforcements soon?

Yes, actually they have been made for months now--more Orc melee weapon poses, an orc general, wargs with or without Orc riders, evil men of the east spearmen, evil men of the east nobles and chieftain, trolls (by Bob Olley), balrogs, Beasts of the Great Enemy (giant scorpions), the great enemy himself (by Tom Meier), even the golden deceiver, a great wingless worm of incredible cunning and malice, and not to be confused with a golden retriever, which has precious little of either.

JRacel Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 6:17 p.m. PST

I am constantly amazed and scared by the shear number of releases Jon puts out each year, many of which we know nothing about until the wonderfully painted pictures appear to tempt us. There so many good things to see and buy all the time that by the time I place an order and receive it I have to place another one . . . .

Great stuff as always.

Jeff

Eli Arndt Inactive Member08 Mar 2012 7:09 p.m. PST

I tell you, the next time somebody wants to complain about a lack of poses or options from him, I'm going to pimp slap them. If anything, I think he sometimes goes a bit overboard on making sure that every army has every option.

Knowing what it costs to get all that stuff out I can do nothing but have great regard for his endeavors. I only hope that a good number of his releases are funded by the previous releases.

Someone complained about Khurasan? "Slap them" I'll slap them all right:

Awesome!

doug redshirt09 Mar 2012 3:19 a.m. PST

Any chance of getting more demons. I have been wanting to do a game campaign based on the computer game "Hellsgate" , at least I think that was the name. Basically portals from another dimension open and creatures come through ending civilization. I see uses for mutants, outlaws, demons and aliens, all from Khurasan.

Also how do the orcs compare in size to a regular figure. Same size or smaller then a human. I need some orcs/goblins for a Battle of Five Armies game and so far they look like my best choice.

sharkbait09 Mar 2012 7:03 a.m. PST

How 'bout some additional poses?!?!

evil grin

I really need to increase my gaming (buying minis) budget. I have a big pile to still paint. Oh well.
