Default The old 15mm Traveller miniatures...

Remember those? From Citadel, not Martian Metals.

Here and here.

These, and more, are still available. I just stumbled upon them at RAFM's site and ordered a dton of them. Right here.

Sorry if this is already a well known fact.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if the Martian Metals have been purchased by anyone or are being released (like the Citadel ones, under a different name)?

Last I heard, iirc, Martian Metals lost the molds in a fire ages ago.

Default Thanks

They are pretty cool.

Thanks for posting them.

It is good to see that the minis are still "in print"

I ordered some myself.

You might want to check out the Blog Dropship Horizon. http://dropshiphorizon.blogspot.com/

It is dedicated to 15mm sci fi miniature gaming. Has heaps of links to other 15mm sc fi manufacturers.

The old Adventurers set were the first miniatures I ever bought (before that I poured my own)! I loved that box art, I once bought a book of SF short stories just because it had the same cover picture.

Anyone know their email address, as I can't find it on the site? I'd like to find out their overseas shipping charges.

I'm in the UK and I've ordered a fair bit from them. The shipping isn't cheap. My last order was for 6 packs of 15mm Traveller figures ($34.70) and they charged me $15.00 postage To add insult to injury that order attracted a customs charge of about 3.50 AND a postage handling charge of 8. I won't be ordering any more kit from RAFM unless I REALLY need it or I'm ordering a big enough quantity that it makes sense.

That's why I'm still looking for their email address (unsuccessfully). If in doubt, it's always best to ask first.
