Not the classic Vargr though (Albedo just look like people with dog heads; the legs are wrong) (I may use Mongoose rules, but my aesthetic is classi):

Oh, I'm well aware. Mongoose messed up both the aslan and vargr illos badly.

Thanks for attaching the link Mako. That is a good-looking lander (actually, isn't it big enough to be at least a scout ship, in 15mm anyway if not 25mm).

Yes, I can't take them or the Albedo versions seriously. Look like cartoon figures, not like aliens. The 15mm gamer is well-served with true Vargr-like figures, but the 25mm gamer not so much. There are the two decent figures in the old Grenadier Traveller Alien Mercenaries box, but not much more than that (and they are, of course, scarce and expensive - I have just the two). I found a couple of decent figures (armed with blades and in somewhat archaic clothing, but usable) in the Iron Winds Metals line of Arcana Unearthed fantasy miniatures (old Ral Partha, small 28mm or large 25mm):

http://ironwindmetals.com/store/prod...oducts_id=8417

That line also has a couple of figures that could be converted to passable Aslan (not that I need any more of those)(and as with the Vargr, one should steer clear of the female figures, which have human-like mammary dimensions, and of figures with shields):

And I just have to point out this fellow, who is an obvious human psionic talent:

Who needs Vargr, when you gots Space Goats?

Though I must say the entire Spacelords line would be my Go To if I where going to switch away from 15mm.

You are welcome, CaptRet, and yes, I suspect it could be used for a Scout ship as well.

Wingspan for this version is 15", and length is 10", so it would serve just fine as a Scout in 15mm - 20mm. You might even be able to justify it as a small scout with larger scale minis too.

The older, even larger, original Quinjet would definitely work with large scale figs as a decent Scout vessel, or Assault Lander.

Space Goats ? Now that's absurd (said the man looking for figures of talking, bipedal dogs/wolves). The Moonraker troopers look very fine and quite useful for mid-tech military. I think they were sculpted by Copplestone and look very much like his Future Wars range (they are smallish 28mm) :

Note the Spacelords are from Hobby Products and are definitely not Copplestone. Note Hobby Products did a line of Traveller Licensed 15mm figures as well which look like the Spacelords line but in 15mm.

But the Future Skirmish all have his look.

Moonraker is a collection of lines from other manufacturers that em4 acquired over the years.

Not a big fan of "Space Goats", but the Phagon Battle Clones are really neat!

Love them for use as Aliens in Battle Armor.
