This set of 28mm Steampunk soldiers form part of Artizan Designs’ ‘Victorian Science Fiction’ range. For sale singly at £3.00 each. Although collectively they may look as if they could pass for late 19th or early 20th Century Russians or Slavs, on closer inspection their fantastical rifles and goggles place them firmly in the realm of Victorian Sci-Fi.
Sporting impressive facial hair and/or great expressions of dour determination, these Artizan Designs are typically characterful and well cast.
Sculptor Mike Owen has concocted a suitably Steampunk background for his range in which Earth has been devastated by a Martian attack and the remaining inhabitants fight it out for supremacy. These seven “Troopers” form part of the Northern Alliance Militia – a private army belonging to the Northern iron-masters. However, with no rules to bind them, these figures could perform in any Steampunk force using rules such as In Her Majesty’s Name or Empire of the Dead.
