Now released in the HOF Range four new 15mm scale Battlesuits!

Four new codes added to the HOF 15mm Science Fiction range for March and April 2018.  Security Force Alpha (SFA) brings a great deal more of the stompy  with variant battlesuit kits for many more specialised uses in battle and orbital freight yard.  These follow up on the original Bear Cat Battlesuit, the Uplifted Yeti Platoon, SFA Personalities and Dogs as well as  Tracker Wheeled Bikes and Portable Weapon Platforms with Gun Crew plus the Trencher 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 about these four new codes plus all of the other related packs in the HOF range.


“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 seventh release in this thread the diaspora of battlesuits as a part of Fred's vision for the future.
