Hello all, I am looking for sci-fi miniatures that fall in the fun or weird or pulp genres. I've come across Khursan Miniatures and Alternative Armies but I'm still looking. Do y'all have any suggestions?

I'm not a fan of the newer 40k stuff or any of the 'Heroic' 28mm miniatures. I like more of the retro 25mm-28mm style.

I've been using mostly paper minis from Okumarts Games and I really enjoy that art style.

Thanks for any info

I like the East Riding Miniatures corporation wars Interpol and Slicks, though there are only about 10 of each faction.

Old Ral Partha, RAFM, Soldiers & Swords(?) for a start… ;-)

As Zephyr1 notes, old fantasy figures can make great aliens. For something really old school try to fins the very first Minifigs SF range, the Death Angels in particular.

Denizen and GZG 25mm fantasy and sci-fi ranges, I still like them now, but alas more 28-32mm nowadays for me.

The Denizen sci-fi stuff in my mind is the best sculpted 25mm that I have seen personally.

Happy hunting

Reaper has loads of neat sci fi figures. They are generally 28mm or slightly larger.

Look at the old Starguard range, maybe the Ralnai and Dreenoi in particular. Lots to look at.

Zombiesmith has aliens:

32mm, but Hydra has Retro Raygun:

Pulp Figures has Racon Zombies from the Starosphere in their Weird Menace section:
(I'm using the Radon Zombies as mind-controlled slaves of the Hydra Valkeeri

Galaxy Laser Team is 54mm but then how large is a lobster turtle?


These little alien guys are pretty small.

Didn't see anyone mention Recreational Conflict. They had some funky sci-fi models.

You might try Battle Valor Games. Their Facebook page says they just purchased the old Sgt Major sci-fi/pulp/monster ranges which had some fun and weird true 25mm and a lot of 28mm figures.
