Blue Moon Manufacturing Orion Republic Heavy Infantry: Squad complete.


The finished squad. I really enjoyed doing these, even though the camo meant about double the work. I'm going to have to either figure out a great way to do powered armour rules in CR, or perhaps use a different set.

  1. Well, 5150 from Two Hour Wargames features a variety of armour types, including powered armour.

  2. These look great, just picked up some myself and was brainstorming some ideas. I like what you did with the camo.

  3. Thanks people! I think these models actually lend themselves very well to bright paint schemes (40k or starcraft style) but it's a testament to the sculpts that they work equally well in more realistic colours.

  4. Very nice. Do you know if they are available in the UK? I tried ordering two packs from their website and it said that postage to the uk would be 51 dollars!

    I emailed Old Glory UK who stock Blue Moon figures to ask if they will be doing the 15mm Scifi range.

    I got the following response:-

    "Yes in time Historicals first though as I sell more of them! The plan is to carry the figures and maybe the vehicles. At all events we
    can always order them for you. Its not a problem."

    I hope that that helps.

  6. Thanks Capthugeca! I'll contact Old Glory and see if they can order me some of the sci-fi packs. Heaven knows why the P+P is so expensive from the States.

  7. The P&P is calculated at shippping time, but the website doesn't make that clear. I got 4 packs and the shipping was only $9. I suggest emailing them with a shipping estimate request, they are very helpful.

  8. What size bases did you use for these? I can't decide whether they're 20mm or 25mm round bases... Great paintjob!

  9. Richard, these are 20mm round bases. These minis are quite small considering they are wearing power armor.. They scale better with the RAFM Traveller line than modern (Khurasan and GZG) models.
