From TamsinP - 15mm Kra'Vak (226 points)

Continuing down the SciFi rabbit hole, but this time in 15mm, my second post today is the beginning of a Kra'Vak force for Gruntz (and other SF games).

The Kra'Vak are an alien race (obviously) in the "Tuffleyverse" as it is affectionately known by fans of GZG's rules. All the figures in this post are from the recent resculpts of the range which are larger than the original Kra'Vak figures. As Jon Tuffley has noted, the smaller early sculpts could easily be used as the adolescent kra'Vak troops, and the new sculpts as the adult warriors. As well as size, adolescents can be distinguished from adults by the cast of their skin and "hair" tendrils which are reddish rather than green.. And their lunatic behaviour on the battlefield.

So, on with the pics of which there are a lot!

Hunting Beasts and Handlers

Scouts on Grav Bikes

Power Armour Troops

Heavy K-Cannon Teams

Missile Launcher Teams

Grav Mortar Teams

Infantry Platoon with Missile Launchers

Infantry Platoon with Heavy K-Rifles

As mentioned before, all the figures are 15mm from Ground Zero games.

Onto the scoring:
84 foot plus 9 beasts @ 2 = 186 points
6 crew-served weapons @ 4 = 24 points
4 grav bikes (cavalry) @ 4 = 16 points
Total = 226 points

I do have some more Kra'Vak to paint, which might appear later in the Challenge.

Fantastic entry Tamsin, these are a treat to look at. You must have steady hands because these are beautifully crisp and clean making the colours really pop. The figures look nicely detailed which must have made them a joy to paint. 


  1. Now I know what Violet Paint is for ! Top Job 👍

  2. that is a lot of photos. Great and very purple

  3. Lovely colour choice , and nicely done too

  4. AWESOME! Oh I love this post! They are very cool. The colours keep them fun as gaming should be. The bases are excellent as well. Fantastic work on these little predators. Cheers

  5. Bright vivid colours and armed to the teeth, excellent minis.

  6. Cracking work Tamsin! You definitely manage to find some weird and fantastic miniatures lines! It's always fun to see stuff that you've never seen before and you definitely manage to bring a lot of stuff on show that I've never seen anywhere else!

  7. Crazy little sci-fi beasties Tamsin. Some of them have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle look about them. :)

  8. @ Lee - cheers! There are a few brush mishaps if you look closely enough, mostly from adding basing material :)

    @ Fran - thanks! :)

    @ Ken - cheers! The blue violet worked well for them :)

    @ Iain - thanks! :)

    @ Martin C - cheers! Purple and green is a "canon" colour combo for the Kra'Vak :)

    @ Dave D - thanks! :)

    @ Iannick - cheers! :)

    @ Brendon - thanks! As noted above, I went with "canon" colours for them, but those do look great :)

    @ Stuart - cheers! :)

    @ Samuli - GZG to produce some very nice minis; the evil Mr Tuffley is known to regularly empty gamers' wallets :)

    @ Christopher - cheers! :)

    @ Curt - thanks! TMT? Can't see it myself :)

    @ Barks - cheers! :)

  9. So your submission for this week is basically an entire army! Well done!

    1. Not quite an entire army - I have some more stuff to paint up for them :)
