Did they ever get produced? Was there a problem with the greens?

I bought them, but never released them. There were no casting issues. My 15mm sci-fi ranges have taken a back seat as I continue to develop our core Retroverse games: War Rocket, Retro Raygun, and Atomic Tank.

I'm considering selling off my Xeno-15 range. If anyone is interested, PM or email me at

I hope someone picks them up, cool looking minis

The cnids are cool. 15mm not selling well? 10mm for Atomic Tank? I thought 15mm and 6mm were more popular sf sizes. Will have to give them a look anyway.

I really like the Akarr:

Those Cnidocytes are certainly nice I could likely find uses for them in both 15mm and 6mm projects.

Matt Perhaps reach out to Micropanzer or Clear Horizon Miniatures (I see Mr Harold made an appearance in the original thread). It would be a shame for these to never see the light of day.

colour me interested ;-)

The Akarr are some of the best 15mm models I know. Highly dynamic, sharply cast, a joy to paint.

It's really a pity, the line did not take off!

I'm all about these critters!

looks like those cnidocytes will be finding a home with us at RPE, some nice gribbly bugs for the critical mass troops to shoot at :-)
There are some unreleased tech zombies that might just see their way into a kickstarter with the cnids…

Also, the Akarr are coming with them ;-)

I like the drones.
The Marge Simpson ones, not too keen on.

Must say, while not being in Europe, I'm seeing the RPE announcement as fine, as I've had good luck once or twice in the past.

The Marge Simpson ones, not too keen on.

Not so much for this group, but I'm feeling a use, as Mrs Bucket would say, in some casual stroll for pelagic entertainments.

Good on RPE! You're jumping into this market with both feet!
