GZG 15mm "Moderns"

I picked up a few packs of GZG (Ground Zero Games) moderish miniatures and spacefarers and they are pretty nice but much larger than the Rebelminis and Mechwariors that I have (see pic below). I need to find some suitable 15mm decals to put on should pads...

GZG, SPUG, Rebelminis, GZG, Mechwarrior CMG

I also picked up a couple of vehicles that I am really impressed with. I had to use a small bit of putty to fix a problem on the command vehicle, but other than that there weren't any issues. Note that both models required pinning to keep the pieces together.
Command vehicle looks a little large with the GZG troopers, but looks spot on to me with the Rebelminis.

My first foray into 15mm...

I am a lurker at the TMP (theminiaturespage.com) and have been really impressed with how detailed some of the new 15mm moderns/sci fi figures are looking these days. Ones made by Ground Zero Games, Rebel Minis and even the clicky Mech Warrior looked cool to me so I purchased some which are shown below.

15mm is not just a smaller 28mm and it has taken me some work to try to find how much detail to add and such. For example, I based my minis on some 1" washers which looks totally out of place. I found some 1/4" which look a lot better, which you can probably tell from the pictures.

Cool Find: Burger King Star Trek Shuttle - I gave it a new paint job (it had some nice detail that came out well with a black ink wash) and I think it looks pretty cool as a troop transport. Shown below with some clicky Mech Warrior Shock Troopers I repainted (5 to a base for about $0.25 per mini with shipping).

With some Spriggan Miniatures SPUGS (space bugs):

15mm Mech: shown with the clicky Mech Warrior troopers is a 28mm armor from the AT 43 game that looks good as a mech for 15mm (was small for 28mm imho)

Rebel Minis Special Forces: I really like these guys, incredible amount of detail
