Like the 15mm Sci-Fi Germans, the Ventaurans are a successful 300 Club project (the Eureka custom miniature pre-order service). One of our enterprising 300 Club members contacted Chub Pearson at Denizen Miniatures in the UK who very kindly gave his permission to allow us to reproduce his Ventauran designs in 15mm. Sculptor Mike Broadbent (already a fan of the original 25mm Denizen range) was only too happy to tackle the project and we think he has done a lovely job.
As you would expect there is futuristic weaponry and full body blast armour aplenty here! Lots of figure variants carrying the standard "assault rifle", supplemented by a section / squad automatic support weapon, a fearsome looking heavy auto cannon, and a two figure anti-armour weapon set. There is also an officer and a communications (Comms) figure. There are all sorts of 15mm sci-fi battle games systems out there in hyperspace that are crying out for these - such as Future War Commander (Specialist Military Publishing). Alternatively, if you prefer playing skirmish games with 15mm figures (rather than the larger scales) there is GZG's venerable but still excellent Stargrunt rules, or check out the exciting new Tomorrow's War (from the Ambush Alley team who brought you the Force on Force rules).
We currently have another 300 Club request for 15mm versions of some more of Chub's work (the Federation troops) and if you would like to see these put into production you can express an interest by pre-ordering here.
