Rebel Minis Sahadeen and Zed Hunters


Finally I find the time to post some more. Today I'd like to show you the minis I received from Rebel Minis (
I would like to spend some words about them (kind of a short review! :)

First, let me apologize for the grotesque quality of the pictures... my camera does not have such a zoom... When they'll be painted I will ask my -very- patient girlfriend to take some good pics with her kick-a$$ camera and her good talent.

Anyhow, below are the basic Sahadeen warriors, in comparison with an Arc Fleet Light Recon from Critical Mass Games.
The quality of all the minis I received is STUNNING. My bad pics cannot give a pale idea of how nice the models are.
All are dressed with coats, eye/mouth protections, hoods and carry a nice "realistic" rifle with sight. There are 21 minis in 4 poses plus a commander.
And... they fit PERFECTLY the scale of my ARC Fleet Light Recon!!!!! See the picture below!!
They are fantastic together: the impression of having some proud insurgents dressed with a sort of uniform made of clothes only near a light armored soldier is perfectly simulated.
i.e.: their heads are slightly smaller than the AFLR's helmeted head and that's great in my opinion!
They are perfect for the game I was planning to play.

These guys below are from the Sahadeen Gun Team (6 minis). the models are a sniper (that comes with a spotter), a missile launcher guy and a SAW carrier.
All the models are really cool and well done -my favourite is the SAW gunner!- and as above, they perfectly fits their sahadeen friends and the CMG Light Recon troopers.

At last... they're not really sci-fi but I was very curious about these minis.... the zombie hunters!
Five characters with very fine details. From the left: an agile gunslinger girl, a "Lara Croft" style woman -the comparison comes out more for the big breast than for the two UZIs!- a rapper with a shotgun, a mercenary/soldier girl with an MP5, and a fat bald guy with mustaches and a gun (it will be my friend Affro's favourite!).
As for the Sahadeen, they looks just great with AFLR.
These minis can be just perfect in case of need for special characters.
Rebel Minis guys have been so kind to include for free a sample of their Earth Force Marines. The model is the last on the right, and looks very good... maybe my next purchase? Maybe... togheter with tons of their Zombies!! I know they work in partnership with Two Hour Wargames that produce the famous ATZ game... nothing less than good things can come from this relationship!!

Hope to be able to post soon better pictures with painted minis!

  1. The Sahadeen are cool, though I think that when I paint them I may give them different colored skin and use them as aliens/mutants for my various games.

  2. With some work they can easily appear similar to SW Tusken raiders I suppose!
