Hi guys

I'm always looking for cheap 15mm Mechs, I saw someone show off 1 of these on facebook that they bought from a store, and they looked promising, so I bought a set off ebay, they cost me $30 USD Australian with postage for the set of 6, I will need to play around with the designs, reduce the joint gap between the shoulder, change the shape of some of their shoulders, maybe give some of them arm mounted weapons instead of hand held, set them in good poses and re paint.
Its a bit hard to see, but there is a 15mm figure in front for size.
The arms and legs are vinyl, the body is hard plastic and the black pieces (weapons, hands and feet) are rubber, I think they should take paint OK, not sure about the rubber parts, will test them first.
My favourite is the green one, he has a pretty good head and I like the heavy weapons.
I like a bargain and a good challenge, these fit the bill well.

If you really want to hurt people's brains, Bandai makes 1/100 scale Gundam models. Those things are huge!!!

Rubber is not good. It tends to degenerate over time if it is the type I am thinking, so it may need some replacements. Still, nice find because weapons are easy to find!

Gunner I went to your site. Fantastic! That 15mm paper Space Marine dreadnought was unbelievable. Have you built more? Someone makes 15mm Space Marines?

Hi dragon6, I converted my space marines from other 15mm power armour figs, however there are now a few companies that make figs similar to space marines.
