Here's my new website dedicated to miniature wargaming. http://texaswargamer.com/

The 6mm Sci-Fi and 6mm Modern sections have plenty of minis suitable for Stryker and Traveller. Some samples:

Nice work. I managed to paint up some plastic CAV vehicles, with some GZG support vehicles. Have played around with Dirtside II for unit building, and with Command Horizon (from Baccus) - ran a Traveller-esque game under CH which was quite a lot of fun.

How close is that to 1/285 scale?

Actually, these are all 1/285 scale. I've taken to calling 1/285 and 1/300 scale stuff "6mm". Although, there's a very noticeable size difference between 1/300 and 1/285 when it comes to larger MBTs.

The Paneuropean GEV (4th pic) from OGRE is just one of a decent line of retro-future armor from SJG. The Combine GEV is a bit more sleek, while the Hover Truck (in the Fast Convoy set) makes for that rare civilian option.

Some very complementary vehicles are the CinC ASF-20 thru 25 sci-if models.

The use the same chassis as the CinC hovertruck on my website. When I get time to paint them, I'll post some photos.

The Zho trefoil is shown in green. Which implies the uniform isn't.

The Imps officially don't use color, but the Dress uniforms are shown to be Red and Black for Marines, black for Navy. Scouts are shown with blue-gray working uniforms.

Combat uniforms should, generally, be in camouflage. But, one of the typical conceits of futuristic micro-armor play is that the minis on the map are the holotable presentation, not the actual fielded color schemes. So...

Even the counter schemes are inconsistent.
Well, Impies are shown as Black or white markings on red.
Imperial Allies are black or white on orange.

Both Sollies and Zhos are shown Black or White on blue.
Zho Allies and Solomani ground forces are on green.

Too bad you're way over in Tyler. The North Dallas bunch would like to see all that neat stuff.
