When the Science Caste could no longer restrain them, the War Caste invaded earth, with the intent of destroying human civilisation. Their main weapons of attack from a strategic perspective were the great "Maneuver Elements," war machines of massive size and unspeakable power….

OMG

McWong7305 Dec 2014 9:56 p.m. PST

Holy F……
Is that 15mm???

McWong7305 Dec 2014 9:57 p.m. PST

Jon, I'm going to need a lot of Blower tanks for this.

Borscope Inactive Member05 Dec 2014 9:57 p.m. PST

MSRP $250 USD

Shipping $250 USD

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member05 Dec 2014 10:05 p.m. PST

Yes, it's 15mm.

And it won't be nearly that expensive.

It also has straight legs, and you'll be able to get it with four straight legs, four bent legs, or two and two.

With four straight legs it is unbelievably tall!

Wow

Found some more photos…

I was gonna say " that's a 6mm tank for scale"….. But it looks like I'm wrong that's a 15mm! All I can say is, Bloody Hell !

To see the alien invaders themselves, take a look at this:

They are bottom row, fourth and fifth from the left. A soldier of the War Caste and one of the fearsome Kallinect wardroids.

A member of the Science Caste is seen second from the left on the top row. Some of them, called Dissenters, split from the Science Caste and aided the beleaguered humans….

I like this thing so much I'm going to be cross marketing it in my Federation Forward 15mm sci fi range, with a completely different set of troops. Updates on that soon.

I think I'm going to need a bigger table!

artbraune06 Dec 2014 5:16 a.m. PST

My alien invaders need at least three. Looks like Uncle Jon's new and used alien invasion death machines comes through again… 8^)

Wow. All i can say is:

Please, please, do a 6mm version.

devilinthedetails Inactive Member06 Dec 2014 7:52 a.m. PST

Ferkinel!

Sloppypainter Supporting Member of TMP06 Dec 2014 8:37 a.m. PST

@Allen57

That IS the 6mm version. (Just kidding.)

Chatticus Finch06 Dec 2014 9:00 a.m. PST

DUDE!!! That thing is PHENOMENAL!

Now you MUST release the Scythian heavy cannon tanks and the Karkmorsers/Karkpanzers or else we're well and truly boned!!! :)

Seriously though that looks amazing! I hope there'll be some smaller ones, but an absolutely brilliant idea would be to have a 'downed' version of it that could be used as a terrain piece. After all, if I found something like that as a wreck I'd be dead keen to take an annihilation cannon or two home for my team!

Does the local YMCA rent out basketball courts for the day?

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member06 Dec 2014 11:57 a.m. PST

Actually a 6mm version would probably be pretty cool in 15mm scale and still definitely large enough to be crewed.

28mm version, no, I don't think so….

Personal logo PrivateSnafu Supporting Member of TMP06 Dec 2014 1:59 p.m. PST

Apparently the AQOTMF fans are doing it all wrong!

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member06 Dec 2014 2:02 p.m. PST

Who dat?

Personal logo nvdoyle Supporting Member of TMP06 Dec 2014 2:20 p.m. PST

Please do one in 28mm…wait, no, it's fine…MORE than fine….

Legion 406 Dec 2014 2:49 p.m. PST

Actually a 6mm version would probably be pretty cool
Yes ! Along with 6mm Jasmine Thorne !! evil grin

Helena Bottom Farter Inactive Member06 Dec 2014 3:52 p.m. PST

Now that's what I'm talking about. This paintjob is less flashy than the other one but it looks more military, and much more plausible. The price has me worried though, how can this be less than $200 USD?

War Monkey06 Dec 2014 4:03 p.m. PST
kallman06 Dec 2014 6:38 p.m. PST

I must have at least one.

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member06 Dec 2014 8:56 p.m. PST

It will be $99.99 USD.

Fritadas07 Dec 2014 3:30 a.m. PST

hubba hubba

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member07 Dec 2014 10:30 a.m. PST

It will be special order, with postage at actual cost. I need to get another one to figure out how much it weighs. grin

kozak198007 Dec 2014 1:01 p.m. PST

Unsane.

kozak198007 Dec 2014 1:08 p.m. PST

Khurasan is probably the most exciting miniature company in the world.
I cant speak for other worlds but in this one he has the title.

McWong7307 Dec 2014 2:20 p.m. PST

That's a hell of a lot cheaper than I was expecting

nazrat07 Dec 2014 2:27 p.m. PST

Than EVERYBODY was expecting, McWong! What a deal I am telling you!

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP07 Dec 2014 4:41 p.m. PST

Yeah, a 6mm scale one would still be a wicked creepy crawly for 15mm players but a slightly more modestly sized one :)

TK 42108 Dec 2014 5:38 a.m. PST

HOLY DOG S$#T! PRIVATE PYLE, WHAT THE F^&K IS THAT? WHAT IS THAT?

Heinz Good Aryan Inactive Member08 Dec 2014 6:53 a.m. PST

the design is great….

stroezie08 Dec 2014 10:00 a.m. PST

Do a 54mm one, then people can turn it into a minibar. :-))

khurasanminiatures Inactive Member08 Dec 2014 12:24 p.m. PST

At 54mm you could just drive it around yourself.

Lion in the Stars08 Dec 2014 1:27 p.m. PST

So now we know what Jon's kid is going to be for Halloween next year… evil grin
