"The infantry bots were designed by Mike Broadbent, and the superheavies were designed by Mark Mondragon."

Kudos to both!

We're very pleased to expand our Mekanoid range of 15mm sci-fi models, which was launched over a year ago - and 28mm gamers may note that some of these models are suitable for 28mm gaming, as well.

Dictator hierarchs

Leading the Mekanoid invasion forces are the colossal Dictator hierarchs, sentient battle-mechs bristling with weapons. Atop the carapace are two double-barrel superheavy fusion cannons, and mounted below them is a forward-firing multi-rocket launcher. For anti-personnel fire, a further 14 pulse cannons are mounted on firing stations on the legs and head. When assembled, the head and legs move so that you can pose the kit from turn to turn as you'd like.

This enormous creature is over 6" long, and would make a huge mech or alien fighting craft for 28mm gaming, as well. We believe it might just be the largest free-moving gaming piece ever released for 15mm miniature wargaming!

Hatchet gunshipbots

Giving close air support to the Mekanoid legions are the Hatchet gunshipbots, with a top-mounted fusion cannon and seven pulse cannons in firing stations around the vehicle. Completing its armament is a vertical missile silo in the rear deck. The model's VTOL engines are posable, and it attaches to the flight stand by a ball mount, so it may be depicted in a variety of attitudes. This is another model that would find a home in your 28mm sci-fi games as well, as perhaps an aerial sentry bot.

Jaeger riflebots

To supplement the Grenadier meleebots that have been available for over a year are the humanoid Jaeger riflebots, which provide continuous precision fire as the legions advance.

Dragoon cannonbot

Finally we have the centauroid heavy infantry unit of the Mekanoid armies, the Dragoon cannonbot, with a chest-mounted pulse cannon. Scarpering rapidly across the battlefield, they can provide squad-level heavy weapons support to the infantrybots, or can be grouped together for rapid flanking movements. The legs and the torso are posable, and the units come with optional arms to make the Dragoons potent in close combat as well - each pack of four comes with eight melee arms (circular-blade arms and shock cables) and four close assault cannons.

(We've been told that the Dragoons would make handy sentrybots in 28mm gaming, as well.)

All available now. The infantry bots were designed by Mike Broadbent, and the superheavies were designed by Mark Mondragon.

Happy gaming!
