has been around for decades. In more recent times, the models
were developed to create "terrains", and vehicles, including
accessories, to build the worlds that the gaming took place in.
course, one of the most popular, and famous, is Warhammer 40K.
by Games Workshop, they offer dozens of figure characters (figures
you assemble and paint), as well as ships and vehicles. Those
kits tend to be pretty much a plastic model kit, similar to any
other plastic model you may have assembled before. Such as a car,
plane or ship.
figures are typically 28mm high (about 1.1 inches high). While
these are small, the model kits lend themselves to be larger,
easier to build and and handle.
40K means that the battlefield's operation theatre takes place
40,000 years in the future. So the figures, and of course, the
model kits, have a futuristic and scifi look and feel to them.
if you you're not a gamer per se', the models are still enjoyble
to assemble. Especially if you're a scifi fan of that genre's
Imperial Valkyrie alone is around 12 inches long.A good size for
a model to build.
few other gaming companies offer more kits, including Dust Tactics.
You still get that future / scifi vibe from them, and they build
into some great looking ground vehicles and space ships.
can still build and paint figures to go with these models, but
it's the hardware that appeals to model builders of all ages.
