I am looking to add to my collection of Battleforce scale BattleMechs for Alpha Strike.

I know about GZG's stuff. And I think there is DP9's Fleet Scale.

Anything else? Any Gundam toy sets or other stuff I could use?

Thanks!

Germy has a 2mm line of cybertanks and mechs: germy.co.uk/index.html
And I saw some paper buildings there, too.

And some fleet scale mecha from 15mm.co.uk:

The RISK 2210 board game has three different mechs that would fit the scale. They are plastic though and probably not the same quality as IWM stuff.

Check shapeways too! Tons of 3mm ish stuff there.

I've designed some, which I'm eventually planning to put up on Shapeways for sale. These are based heavily on the EU's L5 Riesig walker from Battlefield 2142. On the table, these are roughly 12.5mm tall; in scale, they would be roughly 7 meters or 24 feet tall. The red silhouettes are 3mm from toes to nose.

Oddzial Osmy has some too: link
(and to be balanced, in the UK they are available from Fighting 15's).

onslaught's 6mm OTC battlesuits are great mechs in 3mm.

True it is more expensive than Iron Wind's Battlearmor, but it is less than half the price for Iron Wind's Battleforce/Alpha strike mechs which are $4 USD-6 each.

OTC Battlesuits are 13mm tall and just under $2 USD each, which is expensive. About twice as much as your average 15mm figure. Not saying you should buy them, but they are very nice models.

HOLY COW! Javelin, you know what I'm about that ask – could you scale the Infantry walker up to 6mm without it costing the GDP of a solar system? Because, while I can use 12.5mm high drone walkers for certain forces, that legged APC would be FANTASTIC for some others! :)

Javelin, those walkers are ace! looking forward to seeing them released!

Javelin, whatever happened to these? I've been watching your Emporium for them for years!

Bandai has done some 1/550 Gundam: link

@Logain: I wasn't ever able to make them economically feasible. However, Shapeways recently did an overhaul of their materials and pricing, so I'll see if I can take another crack at them to see if I can make them affordable.

Great designs, hope they are available some point!
