HOF118 and HOF119 SFA Tracker Urban Bikes released!

Two new codes added to the HOF 15mm Science Fiction range for September 2018.  Our last release for the month at Alternative Armies.  Security Force Alpha (SFA) now has sleek powerful bikes to chase down targets in the city or on the battlefield.  These follow up on the SFA Portable Weapon Platforms with Gun Crew and the Tracked Bikes from previous releases and are great for any game system and fit right in with the rest of the array of the SFA. Go HERE or read on for more.

“All across the core star systems and on Terra itself there is a need for security after, during and even before the high rollers and expensive kit arrives in the battle zone. Security Force Alpha is just that force filling in as police, paramilitaries, mercenaries and planetary militias too. They are the faceless grunts that do the thankless jobs needed by all those who govern, control or enforce. Use them as you will from the near to the far future!”

Alternative Armies has embarked upon expanding the Security Force Alpha (SFA) array of codes within the HOF 15mm Science Fiction Range in conjunction with prolific wargamer Fred Richards who has a vision of space colony warfare in the near future which we find captivating and wanted to get in on.  From the mind of Mr Richards and the guys at Alternative Armies comes the third release in this thread the Tracker Urban Bikes for your defence force as a part of Fred's vision for the future.

HOF118 SFA Tracker Urban Bikes
This pack contains two identical resin 15mm scale wheeled bikes each with a fully armoured SFA (Security Force Alpha) Trooper in helmet riding it and wide mounted integral weapons.  The Tracker is a high speed pursuit bike.  5.00GBP per pack.  Go HERE.

HOF119 SFA Tracker Urban Bike Command
This pack contains two resin 15mm scale wheeled bikes. One with a fully armoured SFA (Security Force Alpha) Trooper riding it bare headed.  One bike with no rider upon it. The bike is meant for high speed urban pursuit on Earth or any Colonial Planet and is armed with a side internal mounted projectile weapons.  It is at home in any near future setting. 5.00GBP per pack.  Go HERE.

In the previous two months we released three new packs into the range in co-ordination with Fred Richards which go with these new urban bikes.  See them all HERE.

HOF117 SFA Support Platform Platoon
This pack contains 15mm scale miniatures in high quality grey tone resin which are a part of Security Force Alpha (SFA).  Three different portable weapon platforms in kit form assembled from three pieces each.  A heavy calibre machine gun (0.50 Cal), an automatic grenade launcher (40mm) and an energy beamer (6kw). Six Human Gun Crew in equal number of two different poses both fully armoured SFA Troopers one standing and the other kneeling.  These heavy weapons are great for any setting.  Each platform has a footprint of 30mm across.  Supplied unassembled and unpainted and without bases.  All parts in this set (three platforms, six crew) are supplied on resin mounting blocks which you should remove with care and once you have the blocks make excellent concrete blocks in 15mm scale!  You can choose from the platoon pack or you can select one of the platforms only or a set of two gun crew only.  Select on the website page. 

If you are interested in fielding a force of these Human Soldiers then you are in for a treat as there is a very wide array of choice for you.  Here is a list of all of the current Security Force Alpha packs.
