These are 25mm sci-fi figures that were sculpted by Stan Johansen in the ’70s. They are true 25s: A 6′ individual is represented by a mini that is 25mm from foot to top of the head. That makes them 1/72 scale; however, metal figures tend to have a much stocky build than plastic minis so keep that in mind if you intend to mix them. These are a perfect size to mount on 3/4″ diameter washers and use for games with 1″ squares or hexes.
These figures are no longer available from Stan. In 2021, the rights and masters were sold to me. I am in the process of having new molds made from the original masters for a re-release. Besides that, I have many old stock items available. I hope to have this listed on my webstore soon. In the meantime, you can contact us here for availability information and/or join our Facebook group RRBMinis to stay up-to-date.
Above, a couple battle scenes using Fictioneer minis. Below, an unpainted selection, of the items coming soon…
One thing that has always bothered me is that there was no rules set written for the Fictioneers. Sure, they can be added into any mini agonistic rules system or any that allows for proxy models to be used. But questions were unanswered: Who are the Xybans? Where did the Eeeks come from? What is the planet Sitan like? Well, we are currently working on rectifying that. A new rules set for them (Fictioneers: Legacy) is well underway and being play tested. Quite a bit of work still needs to happen but we are hoping that the rules beta release will be able to coincide with the minis launch. We also hope to be able to offer a starter boxed set of two factions and a print copy of the rules for low introductory price.
