I am using the Control Battalion from Khurasan Miniatures for My Crimson Guard force. The Crimson Guard are Partially converted Cyborg Troops. They are a Medium Tech Force that can use Either Lasers or Projectile Weapons. I just received the Paints & Inks I Ordered about 2 weeks ago, when I made the order I Got all the Paints & Inks I would need to Hopefully complete Many of the forces I have. I had completely ran out of metallic colors so was stuck unable to finish anything. The Paint Job on the Crimson Guard is very simple with only 3 colors of Paints & 2 Inks being used to compliment the Paint job. I Painted up 3 x 6 Man Squads 1 Command Figure & 1 APC (a M114 from Roco with no modifications to the vehicle) as the starting force. I Hope you like them.
This is the small selection of BOLEY "MILITARY " 1:87 SCALE VEHICLES I have got. Models include 4 M-3 Bradley , 2 Abram, 2 S.P. Tanks, 1 MLRS Tractors, 3 HEMTT Dragon Wagons Oshkosh Cargo Trucks, 1 Bus, 1 Truck, 2 Humvee, & 1 Cheep truck. I believe all of these except the cheep green truck are Boley but am not 100% sure as I got them in a large lot of vehicles.
I have only gotten a few die cast models for my 15mm Forces as I found it more cost effective to buy Lots of vehicle of e-Bay & have found most of the lots for Die-Cast are a mixed bag with lots of different vehicles. As I have tried to get Multiple vehicles of the same Type for gaming use I have very few Die Cast models. The Bradleys are Matchbox, the Sheridans & M60s are Zylmex Tanks. The Salidin wheeled armored cars are from Play Art, I don't know who makes the ambulance & the rest are Corgy.
I am going to use these for some of my 15mm forces, I have 63 Mini Tanks all but 3 of them are Roco 1/87 scale models. This includes 13 jeeps, 8 M114 APCs, 5 M113 APCs including Command Vehicle, 2 Marder APCs, 5 Trucks 2 Types, 1 BTR152 Truck, 2 BTR5O APCs, 1 TPZ 1 APCs, 1 8 wheeled APC, 3 M45 Bridge Layers 2 with Bridges, 3 SPZ-KURTZ Armored Cars including Command Car, 3 M109 S.P. Artillery 2 with howitzers, 2 Sheridan M551 Tanks, 3 Leopard Tanks, 8 M60 Tanks, 1 Rig with fuel tank trailer, 4 trailers 2 fuel tanks, 1 cargo & 1 Toe rig.

These are most of the Other Star Wars Models I Have Found that are easily usable with 15mm Figure. So you can see the Scaling I have used the Pangalactic Legion figures from rebel miniatures. I'll identify were each Ship is from. This is the first set of my Comparison Posts with more to come & I will compare the different Models with one another in a later Post.

So you can see the Scaling I have used the Pangalactic Legion figures from rebel minies. The Models are a mix of 1/144 F-Toys, Titanium Series Die Cast, Micro Machines & Miniatures for the Star Wars Miniature Game. I'll try to identify were each is from further in the Posts.

I Decided to Take Some Pictures of the hills. These Hills are Very Cost Effective & have allowed me to put together My Battle Field in many different ways. I have used them to set up Boards Ranging From as Large as 6' x 10' using all the hills to create the Battle Field With Plenty of Cover Only Using 2 Small Building for the Enemy Forward Command Post that was the Objective for One Force which was located at a cross roads within the Light forest as I Still have about 1/2 my trees to base (50 to 60 Trees Left) & Only used 6 of my Jungle Trees. With a 4' x 4' Board being the Smallest Battle Field that was packed so densely with trees & hills that Ranged Combat was Limited to a Maximum of Between 4" to 8" & All Troops Counted as in Cover Beyond 4". The Objective for the Forces was to Find a Downed Recon Drone Recover the Data & then Destroy the drone preventing the enemy from Recovering the Information. Each Force was Given 2 Specialist who could accomplish this once the Drone was Found. The area to be Searched began 9" from the Table edge & every 6" x 6" Area had to be Searched & took Both Actions for a Unit to Search it. To Search the Squad Had to take a Skills Test with a Massive Negative. Only 2 Squads per Side Could Search each Turn & an area could only be searched Once per Side. Here are Picture of My Cheap Hills Warning This Post Is Extremely Pic Heavy. Larger Pics Further in the post.

Unknown Alien Race (Technological Base Unknown Energy Matter Conversion/ The Physics of which are Beyond Humanities Highest Theoretical Geniuses Comprehension.)
When I saw these models I had to have them so I didn't Hesitate & ordered over 100 models for this force (3 Infantry packs & 6 Command Packs) This is actually the first alien force that I had a clear picture of their Combined Arms Reinforced Jump Infantry Company Making them Jump Infantry Eliminated the Need for APCs. As every Legionnaire is equipped with a Jump Pack they can Easily Keep up with the Attached Armor & other Support Units in the Army. I already had the basic Vehicles for the Pangalatic Legion prior to getting the miniature. Their primary vehicles are Combat Walkers. I am using the 1/144 Die-Cast Gunners 2 x 6 Legged Desert Scorpion Walkers & 3 x 4 Legged Grab Gunner Walkers from the Dougram series for their Tanks. Fast Attack Mechs represented by Pieter Zentradi Pods as flankers in addition 2 Scout Walkers 1/200 Hard Rubber Grab Gunners Walkers. I have a lot more mechs Available for support. Bellow are Pictures of my First Test Squad for them.
Bellow are Pictures of the First the 5 Man Test Squad with their attached Support Weapon Specialists Team. The 2 Man Weapons Team's figures are mounted separately as I am still debating the Army TO&E as Gruntz 1.1 should be released Really Soon (Most Likely Within a Week or so). The Weapons & Equipment are Temporarily Blue but will be Bronze replacing almost all the Blue once my Vallejo Paint order Comes in, Also the Royal Purple Will be washed with a Thinned Purple Ink & Highlighted making it a little darker but smother adding the perfect Effect as their Power Armor is Energy based. This Uses the Pinnacle of Advancement in Personal Shield Technology Literally Converting the Energy into Matter forming Physical Power Armor with Almost No Weight which can be shut down when Not In Use. The Energy Supply for each Suit Will Last Between 2 to 6 Hours Even in the Heaviest Combat Situation & Can Be Recharged from any of their Vehicles within a matter of Minutes or From a Conventional Source in about 1 to 2 Hours. The First 6 Pictures are Small So they could be fit on the Main Page, but all the other Pictures are Large Click on Post to take a look.
