15mm.co.uk Releases Fleet Scale Mecha

Hello everyone,

Today's post is not just an advertisement for a new release but another beaming point of pride for me as a sculptor. 

You may recall a bit ago i set myself to the challenge of sculpting mecha suitable for use in games along side "fleet scale" spaceships. I use the term "fleet scale" as an umbrella for the many different actual scales used for the various spaceship lines out there and up until I sculpted these there really hadn't been many attempts at making old school mecha for these scales. What is an aspiring sculptor to do but to give it a whirl.

15mm.co.uk accepted these sculpts under the auspices of their SHM miniatures line but the minis are so different and so in a category all their own that they have given them their own little home on their site, HERE!

So go check them out or, as they like to say in the anime shows, "Ikimasu!!"

  1. Quick off the mark my friend! I did not even have time to mail you and let you know they were released.

    These are super little miniatures and the level of detail is great for the size of them. At this very moment Barking Irons Online is preparing to post an article about their use in USEME (both in space and on the ground).

    Well done Eli!

  3. Now that I have the master cast samples, I want to try to do some variants on the basic mecha. Anime mecha shows are full of this sort of stuff - full armor, high manuevering, heavy gun, etc..

  6. I'm glad you all love them. These were sort of a dream project for me. I've been a lifelong mecha fan and it always bugged me that nobody had made a proper go of it in this scale.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing how folks use these.
