Asgard Space Marines collection painted by Mark Stevenson

A number of years ago we had the privilege of bringing a 28mm compatible range of classic miniatures back to the world. The Space Marines originally from Asgard Miniatures now at Alternative Armies. Mr Mark Stevenson is an avid miniature collector and enthusiast and it is my pleasure to be able to show you these pictures of his take on these miniatures. 

Dating from around 1980 there are thirteen different miniatures in the Space Marines collection; from fully armoured to light suited. You can see them all HERE and they will work in any wargame setting which takes a role in the cosmos. We also have the whole collection as a single box with a saving. 

Mark went with a cold white colour for the armoured space marines and a warmer orange for the ones in light space armour giving his work a tone of movies such as Moonraker which went for a hard science fiction take on combat outside the atmosphere. As you can see there is quite a size difference between the different armour grades making for a nice contrast. Here is a listing of all the codes: 

SM1 Space Marine in full armour 
SM2 Space Marine in light armour 
SM3 Space Marine in full battle armour 
SM3A Space Marine in full battle armour flying 
SM4 Psionic Marine 
SM5 Space Trooper with Force Axe 
SM6 Space Trooper with AP Rifle 
SM7 Space Trooper kneeling with Energy Mortar 
SM8 Space Trooper Captain 
SM9 Large Battle Droid 
SM11 Space Marine Mortar with Crew (Three Miniatures) 

Here are Mark's painted miniatures in that code order. Check these out! 

Thanks for Reading,
