Combat Armor Mecha has a Kickstarter campaign running right now to fund a 1/285 scale miniatures.


From the campaign:

The Kickstarter campaign for Combat Armor Mecha will create a set of new, 1/285th-scale mecha miniatures which appeal to wargamers and hobbyists alike. The models are designed to be played at 1/285th scale, resulting in a physical size of around 40-45mm tall. Some models may be shorter due to the particulars of the torso and leg assemblies.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I’d was tempted to support by picking up a model or 2, then noticed he only ships to US. Oh well, good luck.

      I’m looking into some international options. I’ll try to see if I can get it sorted over the next week or so.

    I wonder how long it’ll be before Kevin Siembieda starts sending cease and desist letters?

  • GavinSyme

    Indeed! Also they would be perfectly possible in white metal.

    I was actually pretty interested until I noticed the kickstarter comment regarding glue. While I have no problem making static models, it seem like a hugely missed opportunity to NOT make these ball-and-socket or magnet-ready. If the modular aspect is supposed to be a selling point, maybe they should be designed to take advantage of it more.

      eh, magnets on a metal mini aren’t great anyway. Resin would have been better all around. But I’m still liking what he’s shown so far.

      • GlennM

        It is feasible to drill them out and use Magnets, honestly without the metal in hand, not sure how much strength you’ll need though. The joins will be ball and socket so there is some posing options.

    At that scale, magnets are a real pain, even in plastic. Would’ve been nice if these were designed with some sort of post-painting swap-ability in mind.
