Defiance Games Plastic SF Marines Up for Order

Postby Lovejoy » Tue Nov 29, 2011 10:42 am

Some stuff from the ex-WF people, nicked from TMP....

"We just wanted to let everyone know that our very first 28mm (1/56 scale) hard plastic set ? USMC Infantry ? for our Alien War range is now available to purchase!

The Marines come in a 24-figure box set (including 24 25mm round hard plastic bases). There are a variety of helmets (both open and closed), and bare head and 8-point cap options. Weapons include the standard M46 rifle, M-46 with underslung M-504 grenade launcher, M-46 carbine, and the powerful SAW seen above! There are also loads of extra ammo packs, attachments, and backpacks.

This is our first set in a planned SF range that will also see releases for USMC Hardsuits (40mm tall power armor), Alien Bugs, German Panzergrenadiers, Chinese Imperial Infantry, Female Marines, Vralk Warriors (our first intelligent alien species), and many more over the next few months.

This set has an MSRP of $29.95 ? but there are also 4-set and 8-set deals to help you build your force quickly.

Pop on over to our site to check them out:

Also, while you're there ? sign up for our newsletter and we'll keep you up to date on the latest releases!

Thanks TMP!

They look better than I expected. Would like to see some full sprue shots.

On the painted example there, is that guy's helmet open to the back of his head...?

Hmmmm.

Several points...

1) The painted (but tiny) figure does indeed look better than anything WGF produced.

2) Baring in mind TtBHJ's past record it's safe to assume that the SAW gunner is a render rather than the 'real thing'.

3) "All Defiance Games Products are Proudly Made in the USA" - who gives a fuck? Again, past history between Defiance and WGF would suggest this is little more than a xenophobic dig :|

4) Available to purchase but no sprue shots, or anything other than one assembled figure? :|

5) Mantic have got something very similar in the works....

Ooo, well timed!
I was looking to get another human force for SF games. And I do prefer the near-future look to far-future.
I'll be very keen to see these up close and in the flesh.
