We are very pleased to expand our 15mm Zantin Reconquest range with the release of the Zantin Scutari -- the heavily armoured infantry of the resurgent Zantin Empire. Unlike the tumultuous GOTA infantry forces, the Zantin Scutari are heavily armoured, superbly disciplined and trained, and fighting in the ranks of regiments with histories that date back thousands of years.

We are releasing three codes today…

Zantin Scutari with plasma rifles

Zantin Scutari with the fusion gun (the infantry's primary defence against grav tank attack)

Zantin Scutari Centurions and casualty

All are available now, at this link:

As with the GOTA Clans, if these are well-received we will certainly make more. Thanks for looking.

Loving these! They'd make good Traveller high TL troops.

Beautiful. Simply beautiful!

Mean looking….In a great way

These Zantin Empire troops look super, great individual animation and well proportioned and balanced looking weapons,two packs of the Plasma rifles and the Fusion guns with a single pack of the Centurions would make up a good size Platoon, you just need a couple of high ranking officers maybe a Pilus Prior Commander, Tesserarius 2nd in commander, and possibly a Clinicus a medic to round them out. :) zac

Amazing & ordered!

Helena Bottom Farter Inactive Member21 Oct 2014 9:11 p.m. PST

I bought the other guys on a whim and I ended up using them all the time. Will pick up some of these too.

Ok Jon every time you release things from this range we read about grav tanks.
Are there designs coming for these guys specifically?

Capt Flash22 Oct 2014 6:04 a.m. PST

Good looking sculpts. My only negative thought is regarding the casualty. I personally prefer casualties to be a separate order option.

kenohhkc Inactive Member22 Oct 2014 6:44 a.m. PST

Ordered with my GOTA and other odds and ends I have been waiting on. Now here's hoping for the Control Battalion APC soon.

TK 421 Inactive Member22 Oct 2014 7:05 a.m. PST

Very nicely sculpted. I am definitely getting enough for one platoon ans looking forward to more releases.

Capt. Flash, that would have cost an extra $120 USD or so, which I'm not sure the project would have sustained, so instead it went into the command pack. The cost to a gamer who buys command but doesn't want it, for instance, is probably sixty cents, unless the gamer needs more than four leaders.

TK 421 Inactive Member23 Oct 2014 5:33 a.m. PST

I wish I had an extra $120 USD right now!

TK 421 Inactive Member27 Oct 2014 5:48 p.m. PST

OOPS! I did it again. I could have sworn I updated the riflemen to qty of 3 but instead did the support guys! Damnit!

Those look fantastic!

Thank you.

TK 421 Inactive Member31 Oct 2014 5:57 a.m. PST

I have some of those as well. They will form one branch of my Japanese forces as will the Scutari. Once Khurasan reopens I will have to reorder the other two sets of riflemen and restructure the TO since I have more anti tank troops.
