PowerArmour Squad - Eastway National Army

Renamed the Eastway National Army, in recognition of the original city guards still being in service, the ENA are starting to finalise some of its core units.

The first core unit is a PowerArmoured unit, which includes specialist troopers that are armed with new alien tech weaponry. This alien weaponry is rumoured to have been supplied by a race that is aligned against the Federal Forces.

Eastway National Guard - Command and Powered Armour

Eastway City has recently consolidated their existing properties and expanded their territory. While avoiding outright armed conflict with Federal Forces they have greatly enhanced their military assets. The Eastway Council has brought in a large force of professional soldiers and rewarded them with Citizenship and a promise of land.

The new ENG (Eastway National Guard) have met with the existing ECM (Eastway City Militia) leadership with a view to integrating their forces.

The new ENG forces include powered armour troops. These images are not the best quality and Federal Intel hopes for better quality images within the next few days.

15mm Scifi Figure Comparison Part 6

It's been a while since I posted and I just spotted that I never got round to puting up the comparison shots with the Darkest Star minis I received a few months back. So better late than never, here they are...

These are (from left to right); Darkest Star Star Marauder, Khurasan Control Battalion, Critical Mass ARC Scout, Darkest Star Magravate Militia, Laserburn Starship Crewman.
And again from left to right; Darkest Star Zonii Warrior, Khurasan Control Battalion, Critical Mass ARC Scout, Darkest Star Magravate Militia, Laserburn Starship Crewman.

These are all from the 1st wave of minis released by Darkest Star for their Colony 15 range. They have since released the Spec-Sec range of anime inspires 15mm minis.

Eastway National Armed Forces - using ArmiesArmy British

I just received a large bundle of the new ArmiesArmy British forces as a thank you from Keith for designing their logo. Wow! These figures are great. They have convinced me to put away my 28mm Greek army and get back to my 15mm Scifi world. A big sorry to those who have followed the blog and have missed the regular posts.

At first look I was sure that these guys would be perfect as additional forces for my Eastway City Militia faction. The have the same rounded helmet style that the Rafm/Traveller figures have. I even painted one up to see how it looked in the same colours. I was very happy with the way the figure came out. "Perfect!", I thought.

Then I got some of the Rafm minis out of storage. And the size difference is very noticable. I knew Rafm have suffered from a couple of decades of scale creep, but I hadn't thought it would be quite as bad.

But... to be honest, the new figures from ArmiesArmy are so good that I may just retire the older rafm minis and focus on the new mini range.

Anyway, here is the 1st of the new minis, and some of the Rafm ones so you can judge for yourself how they compare....
