Micropanzer Wargame Studio have posted images of the 3D renders (with exploded views) of their Soviet Heavy Combat Armor. These might be released as 15mm figures but they are not currently sure if the detail will translate.

    These are amazing. I really hope they can translate them to 15mm successfully!

  • txMaddog

    Those look awesome! Really going to be hard to resist the 32mm build!

  • You took the words right out of my mouth! I can’t wait for them in 28mm either. Love their bulkiness!

  • Zombie_Taco

    Micropanzer has been doing some great stuff and with the gruntz rules coming out I may be able to convince some gaming buddies to play some 15mm gaming.

  • I think these would be great in 28-32mm (whatever is the current scale nowadays) lovely Starcraft style marines.

  • Tommygun

    Has anyone heard of an approximate release date?

  • I suddenly need those.

  • I was waiting for a release date before I posted these officially but since someone beat me to it —

    I am getting the print file tomorrow to send to get prototyped — I will get both the 45mm tall and 22.5 mm version printed.

    The actual production model will be resin and metal and will not be as many parts as shown in the break down — I will leave the hood as a part so those that dislike the “shot Trap” can leave it off.

    I am shooting for fall to be the release date but will do a limited release once they are prototyped more than likely July

  • Brilliant. Really like these and will happily add a Squad to my Weird WWII collection. 🙂

    These are #$%# Hot! The thickness of the hood seems like it would be a problem as far as casting goes.. is that working out alright?

  • Brilliantly executed … BUT … No one is the shape to wear those suits! More bow legged and with more gorilla like arms than even gw sm!

    • keltheos

      Unless they fit into the torso area seated and not throughout the suit body… 😉

      • I have always considered these as about 8- 9 feet tall and it is more of a wounded soldier that has been placed inside chest area – perhaps just a torso and head hooked up to machines or could make large enough to have a person sit in it like a scope dog mech — that would mean the 15mm version is 45mm and the 32mm version would be 90mm tall.

  • If one didn’t like the “wounded warrior” concept, these would also work great either as robot warriors or as remote-operated fighting drones. They could be controlled from a nearby vehicle, installation, or even an orbiting starship.


    PS – Jason, I can’t seem to get registered onto your forum. 1+2 still equals 3, right? 🙂

  • Huh went ahead and dropped that question – not sure why it was not letting you join — I had more bots than members so had to start asking questions as code visual entry was not an option looking at trying to find a patch to make first post have to be approved and drop all the registration restrictions.
