HOF161 Uplifted Cattle 15mm scale released

“Farmer Jones got a real surprise on Friday morning for he did not know that the Zeta Reticulans had visited his dairy farm during the night and had 'uplifted' his cows.  Rather than happily queuing up for the milking machines the cattle were walking about on their hind hoofs and carrying death rays!  Farmer Jones never managed to tell his wife about this..but she heard the herd atomise her man and his dying scream.” 

A new code in the HOF 15mm Science Fiction range gives you three poses of cyber augmented cows armed with heavy death rays projectors.  It is also our last in the massive expansion of the Grey Aliens in the range. Our thanks to veteran wargamer Fred Richards.

HOF161 Uplifted Cattle: This pack contains three 15mm scale metal Cows in a three different poses. These were once normal cattle but now cyber and generically uplifted they obey their overlords. Each miniature is approx 23mm to eyeline in scale with the rest of the HOF Range.  Eye lenses and cables along with other odd devices make the Uplifted Cattle very strong.  

In fact they are 'Udderly Splendid' (groan!) Upright Cow aiming heavy Death Ray (A), Upright Cow with heavy Death Ray raised (B) and Upright Cow firing heavy Death Ray (C). See them HERE.

The grand and noble HOF (Hordes of the Future) range contains a wide variety of 15mm Science Fiction Miniatures and Vehicles. Each miniature is on its own integral base and made in high quality metal or grey tone resin.  Humans (Security Force Alpha, Cultists, Post Apoc Warriors, Rim Mercs, Civilians), Aliens, Mecha, Robots and much more besides in more than one hundred and sixty codes of some four hundred poses. These miniatures can be used for any purpose in this scale. Every code can be bought as a pack or you can also choose single miniatures from pack codes within them.  Refine your search on the range page by type using the 'Filter By' box.

Thanks for Reading,



  1. these look udderly evil... They must of herd the call and were sooo fed up of human fondling their udders.

    Will there be Heavy Weapon or close combat Bullocks or just an all female herd?

    1. Thank you. There may be. If the idea has hoofs then we will expand them in the future. Females on the whole as Cows as the ideas but Alpha Steers may happen too. GBS

  2. Just a note as I’m colour blind the red text on grey background is near unreadable to me 😢
    On the other hand Space Cows are awesome!!!❤️

    1. Thank you, most kind. Sorry. I need a way to make it stand out and red was the most middle ground choice of tone. At least the link in it is blue or grey. GBS
