15mm SHM and Star Vikings ranges
SHM 15MM RANGE
We are all about fostering wargamers talents and interests and to that end back in 2008 Gavin Syme (GBS) created the SHM idea. 'Self Help Miniatures' are designed by aspiring sculpters who in return for giving their creations to Alternative Armies (then 15mmcouk) get into the hobby and gain experience. As a result a dozen designers (some of them working on their own right in the industry now) have submitted designs which made it to the SHM Range. If you are keen on seeing what it takes to get into this range then send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
You can find all of the SHM 15mm in this section. Have a browse for unique miniatures that otherwise would likely not exist if it was not for SHM. Designers in the SHM Range include: Sergio Gonzalez, Eli Arndt, Steve Hazuka, Fjodin (Nick Kondratov), Rob Alderman, Elton Waters, Jeff Worley, Hugh Bannerman, Layton Fellows, Eve Hallow, Tom Dee and Will Grundy.
In the distant future of mankind a group of fanatical and evil scientists broke sacred laws by creating human-animal hybrids. These scientists and their loyal followers were forced to flee from Earth aboard several starships. They were hardy peoples coming from Skandanavia so they choose a winter world as their new home. Their numbers were few and compared to the standing armies of the empires and federations around them they were weak. To ensure their survival the mythos of the Norsemen was incorporated into their now accelerated gene beast research. This new force allowed the now Star Viking peoples to mount raids vital to their development and in time they grew strong and corrupt. Using the few human soldiers they have well most raids are carried out by the gene ripped creatures from massive factories on their world. Among them are Battle Boars of legend, Stocky Dwarves of mythos and vile goblinoids of lore. Lastly the huge Battle Giants pieced together for combat. The Star Vikings are to be feared...to some they are hailed as Devils.
