Daemonscape - 25mm Sci-fi Vehicles
Just as I think lead mountain is finally shrinking and I have managed to keep purchases in check, something new comes along. I spotted these searching the web looking for suitable vehicles for the SST project.
The Daemonscape castings I believe are the old GZG vehicles in true 25mm scale, the castings are great and the guys have done a great job of cleaning the molds up – sharp, crisp and they fit together really well. I received an e-mail once the order was received and dispatched and the kits were really well packed.
I shall definately be using them again.You can find them here Daemonscape
I wanted some APC's for the Starship Troopers campaign, but did not want to end up down the GW route with each vehicle brisking with machine guns and large cannons, these snowcats and command vehicle seem to fit with the low technology levels needed in the SST universe and the style from the movie which I have based my collection on.
The low offensive capabilities with only a single HMG should also force the mobile Infantry to get out and fight.....
I need to glue all the parts together and add the heavy machine gun but the photo above gives you an idea of the scale when compared to a 1st Corp Colonial Infantryman.
