I'm looking for 15mm raygun gothic miniatures, similar in style to Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers. This is an art deco-based style, so sleek lines and less surface detail.

There's quite a few of them in 28mm, but I like my teeny tiny dudes! Examples of 28mm:

Does anyone have any ideas?

If it ain't got fins, I ain't interested!

(Half-joking, fins are very welcome though.)

The old Laserburn and Asgard minis are true 15s, IIRC, and are rather retro in design.

Perhaps some others too, but I'm not sure if some/all are still available.

Tabletop Games used to have some. Don't know if those are now sold with the company above, or are lost.

Some of the old Traveller minis are still available too, and look neat. Not sure they are retro enough for you, but might be pressed into service especially the Droyne aliens. These are sold by RAFM, and apparently the Droyne are now Dracos:

Laserburn was produced by Tabletop Games. I guess they don't exist anymore as alternative armies does that range now (and some other TTG rabges too iirc)

My own Flash Gordon collection is in 40mm scale, see the Blog and search out Flash Gordon.

But I remember when posting images of some of the earlier models that I was in regular correspondence with another modeller who was working in 15mm scale unfortunately, I cannot remember his name of the links to his figures, but maybe someone else can…..

Good luck.

Laserburn is the only range that immediately leaps to mind – though it does have quite a bit of an 80's shoulder pad vibe going or may that leaked in from Judge Dread / 2000AD?

Blue Moon has some stuff that might fit the bill stylistically but I think they are more 18mm than 15mm. The Scene does Hawkmen and some robots.

Other ranges probably have the odd sculpt that would suit, e.g. GZG's Brethren of the New Light might fit. Pulp / VSF Martian ranges might also be worth alook.

Alternative Armies new Ion Age miniatures have a lot of 15mm that might fit what your looking for.

Blue moon is a good suggestion. The critical mass line now available from Ral Partha Europe might have some useful figures in their Zas mercenaries.

Check Shapeways and Thingiverse ft anything suitable, ignoring scale. If you're dedicated, a lot of creators will either scale miniatures, which can cause printing problem so for fine detail, or make appropriately modified versions for 15mm. Some folks who really do it for fun may be persuaded to do the modifications for free if they know you're going take a significant buy.

Oh, and you can 3D scan figures and import them into Shapeways: link

Get the permission of the ownernof the model line first.

I have a mix of the Laserburn figures Imperials, Lionmen centalons,etc) and the Hawkmen from the Scene as well as Robots from Hydra.
Essex have monks praying and a fantasy sorcerer who do very well as Mongo priests.
Getting the Stars or Heroes is quite difficult though. I look at a lot of historical figures but not many are close enough.
