Some tidbits from the Interconnected Differencing Engine Network
From Troublemaker Games, a company which I have noticed before, but which has expanded their offerings:
German Steamjet Infantry
Originally scaled as 10mm, I think these could be used for impressive automatons at the least for a 6mm game. Just paint in a metallic scheme, and I think it would work well.
German Foundation Set
This set includes three pieces, it seems. One is a beautiful piece for terrain. One is an armoured vehicle, and one is a piece of high-tech gimcrackery. A British version is also available, as is a Martian one.
German Armoured Infantry
The last piece of German hardware I shall mention here today, it reminds me something of the Bioshock videogame franchise. Still, pretty cool looking figures.
British Heavy Cruiser
This is a nice looking piece of kit. Very VSF feel, especially with the giant raygun - excuse me, an "Unfathomable Energy Projector" - on the aft turret. Note that this is a land vessel. It is resin, and 16 cm in length (about 6 inches).
Martian Flying Machine.
I really like this guy. Classic saucer shape, big honking gun, and what looks like a pair of smoke stacks coming up from the rear. At 8.00 GBP, it isn't the cheapest thing out there, but still, it looks good. Also a resin cast, it comes with a clear flight stand.
