Requested by our customers of 28mm science-fiction miniatures from the Alternate Stars range, as well as the The Ion Age range and the classic Asgard and Tabletop ranges, new weapons now released. Great for adding to any figures in your collection, in their hands or on their backs and so forth.

Planetary Militia

There are three different bits packs in the 28mm Ion Age range too. IAC01 Retained Conversion Pack, as well as IAC02 Muster Conversion Pack and IAC03 Khanate Conversion Pack. Above, you can see IB29 Planetary Militia who make use of the Moth Type 6 Rifle which is to be found in IAC02.


Meet the lovely R.U.F.U.S, which stands for Robotic Unit Fighting or Utility Servant, and this type of android is deployed across the Star Empire to bolster troops. It is also used by merc crews and brigantines as added muscle. Over time, their neural nets develop personalities. Use this larger model (40mm tall) in any game system of your choosing beyond our little snippet of possible setting. Useful in 28mm, 15mm and 6mm settings as a war droid or personality.

Thanks for Reading!
