Thanks for sharing your list(s).

Yea, Denizen still makes some of the 25mm Ventaurans. I'd like some of those too.

Eureka's 15mm offerings are superb as well.

I need to start painting both minis and terrain. Have been working on acquiring the necessary items, figs, and vehicles for some good Spaceport adventures with a bit of variety, as well as for other scenarios too.

Fortunately today, we are spoiled with many excellent choices in a multitude of scales, unlike last century, when pickings were rather slim.

Remember that Denizen's figs are 25mm matching the Grenadier 25mm Marines and character packs.

Here's my chosen, toy "lander" or shuttle photo.

It scales nicely with 15mm - 32mm figures, which is a great bonus, since it can be used with 3+ scales of figures - 15mm/18mm, 25mm/28mm, and 32mm miniatures.

Tried to provide a direct image here, but I couldn't get it to work, hence the link.

And steer clear of the SF-9 Ventauran figure without a helmet - his ears and features make it pretty clear that he is a humanoid alien, vice a Zhodani. The other Venturians with helmet on are perfect Zhodani.

Mako, did you attach a photo or link ? I don't see anything.

Yes, pickings were slim - when you consider how bad so many of the old Citadel 15mm Traveller scuplts actually were (with a very few exceptions). But back then that was all we had (many of us used Roco Minitanks as the basis for our military vehicles, especially the Schutzenpanzer HS 30 family of vehicles) https://www.picclickimg.com/d/l400/p...-German-HS.jpg Those were cheap then but cost a fortune now. Cheaper now to get the many purpose-designed sci fi vehicles now available!

In my list of 25mm, forgot to mention that Ground Zero Games has a pretty good range of 25mm figures too. I got 10 of their UNSC (United Nations Space Command) hard-suit figures to serve alongside my Grenadier Marines as a third squad. They are not exact matches for them, and they are just a tad shorter (some of them are female, too), but they mix fairly well (and you can always put them on a slightly thicker base). The helmet is similar to the Marines, with that sallet-like neck flange, but there is a slight flattening on the back of the helmet. Again, not exact, but pretty close (and much less costly than the Grenadier box, which on E-Bay can easily exceed $150 for a box of 10).

Many of the other GZG 25mm lines are also very Traveller-like. The NAC troops are wearing partial helmets and what looks similar to the Poly-Carapace armor in the Central Supply Catalog (and their weapons would do nicely as ACRs with under-barrel grenade launcers - some others carry laser carbines and one figure even carries what would do nicely as a PGMP).

There is a new line of Albedo minis, too...

25mm scale.

For those unfamiliar, Albedo was an anthropomorphics comic, in a fairly gritty space opera post-human setting. No gravitics, but high-efficiency plasma drives.

The ground vehicles look pretty nice.

Here's a link to some Albedo troops. They are bigger than 25mm (more like heroic scale 28mm - I've seem some pictures that show they are even larger than Warhammer Cadians) and except for their heads they are totally human (i.e. not digitigrade, like Vargr or Aslan).

Here's a better picture of the GZG Games 25mm UNSC used as Imperial Marines. As I said, not a perfect match but pretty close.
