We are very pleased to release our latest 6mm range of sci fi models -- Nova Respublik. This is a breakaway Freehold in Federal Space following a socialist revolution and overthrow of a corrupt and decrepit monarchy. The ruthless revolutionary leadership has long felt that their revolution will die unless it spreads throughout Federation space. As such, Nova Respublik is one of the primary threats to the Federation.

This range is already available in 15mm scale but is now being offered in 6mm scale as well. Above is the Red Eagle tank, the primary armoured fighting vehicle of Nova Respublik.

An upgrade to the Red Eagle replaces its cannon with a powerful although still dangerously-unstable laser, such tanks being designated Red Lightning.

picture

The heavy infantry carrier of Nova Respublik is the Yozhik, which mounts an autocannon and missile launchers, allowing the vehicle to engage lighter targets in support of its infantry passengers.

picture

Nova infantry are brave and very stubborn, although they do not always show the highest initiative. Nova Riflemen are available in four poses armoured with the rugged pulse rifle.

picture

Nova command and squad weapons are available as well -- a commander, a SAW gunner, an RPG and the heavier missile launcher team (missile-comrade and loader).

picture

Finally Nova heavy weapons are available at platoon level -- two man teams with RAM mortars and heavy pulsers.

We have more planned for 6mm which will be added gradually to the range. Our store is still closed but note we have opened the 6mm store page so that these may be bought now -- we are working late into the night to reduce our backlog and hope to have the full store opened in a few days.

The fearsome John Bear Ross designed the vehicles (originally for 15mm release). Thanks to our own spacejacker for painting and photos on all these!

Oh, very cool. I've been thinking about going with 15mm for scifi gaming but something like this could make me rethink that.

Woo hoo! More love for 6mm!

It is indeed the best of times for 6mm sci-fi gamers!

Its 15mm AND 6mm for me LOL.

OMG!!!!! I was not going to get into 6 mm Science fiction until I saw this. Well I will wait to see how this line expands. You started with my favorite tank from your 15 mm line.

The only thing holding me back from 6mm is a rule set I really love (and preferably is adaptable to solo play). What are people using?

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member24 Apr 2014 7:09 p.m. PST

For solo play I like Two Hour Wargames 5150 series of rulebooks

twohourwargames.com/scifi.html

Mainly because they will work with any scale and they are already geared for solo play.

I have several TwoHour books, but I am looking at 6mm more for company-battalion level where things like Star Army would be incredibly tedious, have you tried Battalion Commander?

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member24 Apr 2014 8:16 p.m. PST

Yes, I have a copy of it wink Perfect for use with 6mm minis.

Personally I'm going with Strike Legion, but Dirtside is free to pick up from GZG's website. Not sure about solo play per se, but some of THW's solo mechanisms can be adapted to other rule systems.

Lovely miniatures especially the infantry

I know this is probably the wrong place to ask but what I was wondering if Khurasan are still planning their 20mm SciFi range?

KJdidit Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Apr 2014 1:56 p.m. PST

Wanting to order these, but waiting to combine the order with some 15mm items…
