Another Tomica Hyper, this one really has me tempted.





It already has 2 cargo pods on the bottom and if that train is the same size as my kids' train then it might be big enough to mount a Chimera or Rhino under it.

I wish I had a better size shot but it looks good for a 40k transport shuttle.

We have 3 different Thomas sets in different scales and mediums, wood, Tomy Prarail and not-Legos.

Japanese kids' magazines come packaged with DVDs of cartoon samplers including tons of ads of course. Kyoto Secunda Prime studies Prarail commercials and pamphlets the way I used to study Star Wars and GI Joe toy catalogs. I remember having dreams about building a whole city out of SW playsets.

DNA huh.


Ha!

We managed to keep it to two types Tomy Plarail and the die cast metal ones. I convinced him to give the metal ones away to friends with younger kids but I kind of like the Plarail system. He's already begun to leave the Thomas engines asside and use the 3 Japanese style "real" trains I bought him and the PlaRail system is so large with such cool options. Far better than the playset based stuff that Fisher price now makes here in the USA where the Trains are still rougly PlaRail compatible but the track system is completely different.

I posted this somewhere else but it should be here.

http://www.amazon.com/1947-Ford-Fire-Department-Truck/dp/B004NPEGOO/ref=sr_1_4?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1454393784&sr=1-4&keywords=jada+1947

A 1947 Ford flat bed by a company called Jada. 1:27 scale.

Check out that overbite!





There's a couple of versions on Amazon for anywhere from $15-$60 plus shipping. The scale is completely wrong of course, but it's so, so pretty.

I can see it as an Ork battlewagon, an IG tank carrier, a wastelands truck etc. The main thing would be to cover or obscure the doors since nothing else really give it a sense of scale.

I'm from the future. The future of space

If you do 15mm sci-fi, every matchbox release will have something useful:



They tend to be around a dollar each and repaint really well. I cut back some of the gun shield as I wanted an un-armed one.



Right now you should be able to find the Rumble Raider. Here are some painted up by Little Chris:



They come like this:







Here's a list of 2016's releases:

http://matchbox.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_2016_Matchbox

Generally speaking for 15mm, cars will be out of scale and close to 20mm while trucks and heavy equipment will be perfect. Though occasionally they'll be too small and more appropriate to 10mm. The Rumble Raiders are enormous vehicles with the tires almost as tall as a person, but the doors and general feel of the scale works with current 15mm sci-fi and modern/near future miniatures.

Good suggestions. I've got alot of quite small scaled matchbox vehicles that I've grabbed as civilian vehicles for my 10mm stuff. Sometimes they even have a scale on the bottom. I should really post some pics of them.

Here's some matchbox choppers I found that look great for 10mm and might pass as 15mm

I'm from the future. The future of space

I really like the Sky scorcher for 15mm. I think it looks about right:


picture from: http://overthehillgaming.blogspot.ca/2013/04/matchbox-finds-for-15mm-3.html

Another thing I've started being more intentional about is paying attention to which miniature makers sell accessory weapons in different scales.

The very first time I was exposed to someone using a toy in miniature wargaming was when a local Dark Angels player got a vindicator kit, built a rhino out of it and then took the extra parts and stuck it on a $5 toy tank. He made WW2 german style tank skirts out of plasticard.

Shipping costs to Canada going up as much as they have has caused me to order a lot less parts off of ebay, but anyone in the US or UK should definitely consider toys + bitz when planning their next vehicle project. For 15mm, I wait for seasonal shipping discounts or sales and order a bunch of guns and parts to use going forward.

15mm.co.uk and The Ion Age recently had a free shipping promotion, so I grabbed the guns and missiles from this:

Spoiler:


Since they could be ordered separately from the whole accessory pack. I've got 10+ matchbox vehicles just waiting for them to arrive. In the order I also got some figures that come with weapon options so I'll have extra parts to use on vehicles:

Spoiler:


For 28mm there are so many more options for augmenting toys with bits.

Seems it would provide plenty of bits for an industrial or underhive terrain project. Sure it could be done with PDV pipes but these look easier to work with and for $20 not that much more.



Another take on the idea, with some wheels and cogs as well.

Hey, it's my still unfinished Quinn Jet and my old townhome. Sadly I think I've played infinity maybe twice since then (so in the past 18 months I believed). Well, it will get more use once my we start up the infinity RPG next year.

Here's another shot of it, without the end of the wings, if people want a better scale shot.



The Halo Warthog was from the Wizkids action clix line and you still see them appear from time to time for less then $10 (got my 4 for $5 each)

Anyway, recently picked up one of these 1/48 light rails after seeing one used on the infinity forum.

Only one side of the tram's doors open though. there are more expensive ones that both sides open but I decided the extra $40 or so wasn't worth it.

I understand there's some sort of new Space Battles (I think it's called, it was big in the 70s?) movie coming. Rouge One, I think about intersteller makeup salesmen. Anyway that means MOAR TOYS and that's always a good thing no?

These are all of course scaled for 3 1/2 inch figures (though undersized for them) but there's very little that gives away the scale so they should/could work as 28mm shuttles.

First up the new hotness, the U wing

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Rogue-U-Wing-Fighter/dp/B01BYBV2OQ/ref=sr_1_9?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1478871692&sr=1-9&keywords=rogue+one





I see potential in there for Imperial, Tau, Chaos or terrain.

Then the new TIE

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Rogue-One-Striker/dp/B01BQ9S9LK/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1478871692&sr=1-1&keywords=rogue+one



Not much you can do with it, it's obviously a TIE fighter but maybe replacing the front window with some kind of cockpit or prow would make it look like something new. And it is a nice TIE.

And a new A Wing.

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Rebels-Syndullas-Wing/dp/B017VV3JNA/ref=sr_1_86?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1478871756&sr=1-86&keywords=rogue+one



As with the TIE, not much you can do to pretend it's not a Star Wars ship, but it is a nice one.

And finally if you have $400 to burn...

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Rogue-Imperial-AT-ACT/dp/B01BQ9S794/ref=sr_1_15?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1478878528&sr=1-15&keywords=rogue+one



A remote controlled walking AT-AT!

Again not much you can do to make incorporate it in other games short of major surgery (and $400 is a bit much to drop for something you'd cut up) but very very nice.

The ATAT Looks like it might actually be near-perfectly scaled for 28mm. I'm not going to pay that, but if someone were running a 28mm SW convention game it might be worth it.

For wargaming, the real SW toy gems are in the Micro Machines and Hot Wheels miniature line. Lots of ships there that -depending on the model- might scale well for X-Wing. With almost every notable vehicle being available in two different scales, you're very likely to find a close match scale-wise.

If you want to do 28mm, check out the Revel model kits. They vary in size and scale, but there are quite a few that are close enough to 28mm to look good as scenery on the table.

Looking at Hot Wheels today, lots of nifty stuff that's not overtly tied to Star Wars or whatever.

Useful copter, about 12" long and covered in precious, precious rivets.

Dang, I want that copter! Just the perfect amount of realism and sci-fi mixed.

I got word on another forum that this older snap-tite kit is about to be re-released.

Unlike the newer, smaller, and less detailed Snap-tite AT-ATC, the AT-AT is 1/53 and measures over a foot tall!

Some folks are selling NOS examples from years ago here.
https://www.amazon.com/Revell-AT-AT-Imperial-Walker-Snaptite/dp/B001MDV1MK
Prices are way too high right now, but there's some info about the size. Based on the price of other models, this one may go for less than $50 if it gets released in the states!

The chopper I've actually seen in the store. It's big enough for 40k, though a bit undersized from what it should be (if that makes sense). At 28mm it works as a smallish cargo chopper carrying a bike or two or 10 men, while at 15mm or 10mm it would work best.

Scale wise looks pretty good, I mean comically small if you're being realistic, but for 40k looks about right. For $20~$30 it makes a nice alternate flier for IG or Marines.

Good to know. That actually sounds perfect to me. I won't be using it for 40k, but for my mech attack games. IMHO, aircraft need to be smaller-than-scale or chibi-in-proportion to work in 28mm or they usually end up way too big. A properly scaled Skycrane would take up a quarter of the table. It's the same reason I think that trains compressed for 0-27 curves work better than true scale "0" trains.*

I'll do a full review when it comes in. It really doesn't look like there's much to be done to it to make it sci-fi ready.


*Speaking of which I should have an update on the sci-fi train soon....

Anyone need some ALIENS?
https://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Select-Colonial-Marines-Builder/dp/B015R6PUVK
It's basically the ALIEN version of plastic army men. 17 aliens and 18 Colonial Marines for $15 bucks.

The Marines are around 1/32 but the aliens look right -if a bit chunky- for 28mm.

THere's a good review of them by INL gameshere:
http://www.inlgames.com/alien.htm
From which I stole the pics above.
Being soft plastic, they'll have to be cleaned really well and some plastic-spcific spray paint would be advised as a base coat, but even if you have no use for the marines, less than a buck each for ALIENS is pretty good and they come in 5 different poses!

And here's another line worth a look-see.

The Corps!

Starting with the Beast Bomber

https://www.walmart.com/ip/The-Corps-Elite-Beast-Bomber/53985882







It looks scaled for GI Joe sized figures which means it would be a massive piece of terrain for 28mm. Perhaps an IG Platoon-level dropship?

$40~$50


Then there's a battle suit

https://www.amazon.com/Corps-Elite-EXO-Battle-action-figure/dp/B0173VM0LK/ref=pd_sbs_21_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=HNG1CEHR2CZRDP6CPXPT



Probably about Knight sized

A helicopter with a transport ramp that could probably hold most 40k vehicles.

https://www.amazon.com/Corps-Soldier-Fortress-Transport-Helicopter/dp/B00CTKCDCW/ref=pd_sbs_21_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=HNG1CEHR2CZRDP6CPXPT



Drone launcher would make a fine Deathstrike launcher or objective.

I only seem to see this in the UK but another interesting starting point for a drop ship or lander.

One more, I only seem to see it in the UK though, but what a perfect shuttle if you chop off the rotors.

I've seen alot of "the corps " stuff around here. Generally they're way too outsized or cartoony to work well with 28mm, but the Sub and Dual Rotor Chopper do have potential for spacecraft.

Most interesting to me, that Exo suit could be quite good with a bit of modification to the legs (either mechanisms or just some plasticard to cover it up. How tall is a Knight? The Exo suit probably isn't bigger than 6 inches tall.. Looks like it can be found for a bit cheaper if you shop around and there is at least one other Torso sculpt that looks pretty cool.

That plane reminds me of the Timmee Toy Hercules I had as a kid. A bit too big as a C-130, but could be a passable as a C-5 Galaxy with propellers...
