Earth Force Marines - 15mm Sci-fi

I would like to introduce you to my Earth Force Marines.  All of these models (except those noted below) came from Rebel Minis.  They are all from their 15mm sci-fi selection.  I have quite a few of their models and have had great experiences with the models and the customer service provided by Rebel Minis.

Here you can see the infantry platoon.  This includes a command team, 4 teams with missile launchers, and an assault team.
 Below is a close up of the command team.  Lieutenant Carl Walton serves as commander of this battle group.
 Here is one of the infantry teams.
 Here you can see 4 heavy machine gun support teams.  (Night must have been falling when this photo was taken.)
 Here is a close up of one of the HMG teams.
 The platoon has been  assigned 4 suits of power armor.  These guys can really add some needed punch when push comes to shove.  (These will be rebased to match the rest of the platoon.  They had been previously assigned to a different command serving as a strike team specializing in boarding actions.)
 This Walker provides some mobile anti-tank fire.  (This unit also need to be rebased.)
 The unit has been provided with a unit for ground transport.  This unit typically is used to move supplies to forward operating positions.
 The unit also has access to a unit for air transport.  This allows for rapid redeployment of units during combat or precision insertion of a unit when needed.  (These flyers will probably be based to match the reset of the force, but I might also leave them black.)
 Access to a gunship is also available and can be used to take down heavy armor or dug in positions.

These models were painted with a base coat of Fabric Tan (Model Masters).  The weapons were painted with cold grey (Game Color) and the face shields were painted blue.  The whole model was then washed with Agrax Earthshade (Games Workshop).  The bases where painted Khaki (Game Color) and then I used watered down wood glue to attach the flock.

I have a few new additions to the unit, but I have not finished painting them yet.  They will hopefully be making it to the paint bench shortly.

The new recruits include another walker to add some additional anti-personnel fire support and several sniper teams.
The other addition is more transports for the unit.  These are not Rebel Minis models.  I'm not sure where these came from as a friend gave me these models.  I think they will look very nice once I get them painted up.

These guys have seen action in a few Tomorrows War battles and I plan to assign them to the field using Future War Commander skirmish rules.

What do you think?  How would you like to face off against this force?


  1. Thanks. I'm glad you like it. I am happy with how it's turned out so far.
