Tomorrow's War Strike Force Entry

This page is a gallery of completed 15mm scale figures and models from Art Crime Productions that I  entered in the Tomorrow's War Strike force Competition in 2012. 


Art Crime is part of the "New Wave" of 15mm figure ranges and is making some truly superb miniatures using modern CAD techniques, and I am very proud to have them as a sponsor for this competition.
The figures are painted with Citadel and Vallejo paints and mounted on 20mm plastic slottta bases.


The 39th Gemini Orbital Rangers (Or "Gorillas") are a veteran urban combat unit. Months in the field on the harsh surface of Planet Brighton-5 have whittled down the original drop platoon to an ad-hoc mixed squad. Their tactics revolve around the use of mechanized suits. The "Gorillas" eschew the use of vehicles, finding them too cumbersome and vulnerable in the hellish labyrinths they are accustomed to fighting in.

Cut off from the main Ranger formation, the Gorillas have been forced to scrounge much of their equipment, leading to an unusual mix of weapons and armor.

1. (L to R) Burner, Tactical and Anti-Tank Suits
2.Alpha Squad- Close Support
3.Bravo Squad- Fire Support

  3. Sniper, yes please! I cant decide if i want to do this on my next lot of figures, but you can always learn from a tutorial (particularly if you do as little painting as i get to do!)

  4. Very nice, Jacker! The background scenery looks like a great place for the troops to "work-out" any tensions and anger. Keep it up.

  7. Those...are...awesome! Frankly, when I saw the pre-painted figures, I was not overly impressed by them, but you have really transformed them into something special. I hope you win.

  10. OMG, mate, you have a real winner here, lovely little force, that heavy gunner in the fire support team is incredible, to be honest I haven't bought anything from this line because I thought they looked a little stiff and lifeless unpainted, maybe due to their origins being computer generated, but you have got me re thinking, great job.
