Any 15mm Nautilus-style divers that could be used as Victorian astronauts?

Suggestions?

Thanks,

My father always reckoned that my mother would go out the day before to find what the shops didn't have, so they could spend the next day looking for it.

Sorry, 28mm

Yes, I've seen those 28mm before … they are amazing !!!

Actually, the pictures look like some Robogear figs. I know those are <>28mm, but suggests you have a look at some retro sci-fi 15's.

Some of the old Trav 15's looked more like diving suits than high tech space.

Edit: Just looked at the Blue Moon; yeah, that's the idea! Only, more like 2001 Space Odyssey, without the corrugated limbs. ;->=

Yeah, I think he's just doing that to wind us up; when has he shown a completed army?

Oh, wait, pot.. kettle…

Those look like New Israelis on the bottom of the sea to me.

As mentioned, the Blue Moon Orion troopers in their bubble helmets would work too.

You can use both for opposing factions, since they look considerably different.

The GZG Light and Heavy Vacc Suit troops are worth checking out as well – they come in both armed, and unarmed variants.

What about Lead Bones' 15mm hardsuits?

Have a look at the RAFM ex Traveller infantry link

I use these, originally from Tabletop Miniatures, but now from 15mm.co.uk

Shiroyama2,

Nice! Do they have air tanks on their backs?

Thanks,

Dan

Shiroyama2,

Which range are they from?

I can't figure out where on the 15mm.co.uk site they are:

15mm.co.uk/index.html

These aren't the ones, right?

Thanks,

Those are the Laserburn 'Space Scouts', i believe…

I'd hit up GZG. Either New Israelis or some of the SG15-V15 light-duty vac suits.

shiroyama2 Inactive Member24 Apr 2012 3:22 a.m. PST

Hi Dan, yes they have a tank of sorts on the back, it's actually supposed to be some kind of jet pack, but it works as an air tank I think.

I use the uniformed ships crew as my Nemo crew and officers too

Incredible what the right paint will do to these figures:

Shiroyama2, I just love the color scheme you used on yours:

Quite a transformation. Makes them look perfect for use with 20,000 Leagues or even "War Gods of the Deep" (1965):
