Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

Here is a quick scale comparison. Left to right: 1. Reaper Minis Nova Corp soldier, 2. Mongoose Street Judge (both "heroic 28mm"), 3. RAFM TNE RC Marine in light battledress and 4. Denizen Ventauran (the latter two in "True 25mm" scale, same size as Grenadier original 25mm castings). Note the differ...

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

Note the Denizen Venturians are available in 15mm from Darkest Star Games, as well as some nice Vargr. Aslan and Droyne one still needs to go to RAFM. You can also find some 15mm Ventaurans/Venturians from Eureka Miniatures (Australia), They sort of kickstarted them some years ago: http://eurekamin...

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

Note you are confusing licensee's Grenadier did the set in "true" 25mm, RAFM did the 28mm figures for TNE. Well, I have quite a bunch of those RAFM (and Grenadier) minis, and I can assure you they are not compatible in size with the newer "heroic" 28mm castings that have become the standard of this...

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

What scale was Starship Troopers? Or Judge Dredd for that matter? Probably gives a bit of a hint anyway. Those were 28mm ("heroic 25mm"). If the new Traveller boarding action game uses that same scale, we could have the very first Aslan minis that size (you can find Vargr proxies, but finding Aslan...

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

Pardon for the necrophilia (and sorry if this has been answered elsewhere) but what is the status of the Traveller miniatures game?

Thanks!

I also preordered the VHB and sent an eMail to Matt for the pdf, but the file has not arrived so far...

Doesn't Marine Career Event 9 gain you an Enemy?

For my second term in the Star Marines I rolled a 9 on the post-survival Events Table. The entry reads: A mission goes disastrously wrong due to your commander’s error or incompetence, but you survive. If you report your commanding officer for his failure then you gain DM+2 to your next Advancement ...
