15mm Alien Squad Leader Army - Human Imperial 2.0 and Imperial Strike Force

GZG NSL Panzergrenadiers were amongst the first figures I ever painted for 15mm.  The model selection is fantastic, with both male/female figures and with and without lowered visors.  You cannot go wrong with this range.

Here is another example of two armies in one for Alien Squad Leader: Human Imperial and Imperial Strike Force.  The Imperial Strike Force is made up of power armor units and support vehicles.  This is my smallest force for ASL, with only 4 tactical squads, 1 assault and 1 devastator squad, with sufficient armored support to fill out to 150 points.  Of course the Human Imperial army is much larger.

The army consists of:
3 Command Squads, 13 pts ea
11 Infantry Squads, 8 pts ea
2 Power Armor Teams, 12 pts ea
4 Heavy Weapon Squads, 10 pts ea
2 Robotic Infantry Squads, 11 pts ea
2 Recon Droids, 12 pts ea
4 Heavy Droids, 13 pts ea
2 Battle Mecha, 20 pts ea
6 Main Battle Tanks, 18 pts ea
3 Assault Transports, 15 pts ea
2 Armored Vehicles, 13 pts ea
2 Light Recon Vehicles, 7 pts ea
2 Aerospace Fighters, 16 pts ea
4 Imperial Strike Force Tactical Squads, 13 pts ea
1 Imperial Strike Force Assault Squad, 13 pts ea
1 Imperial Strike Force Devestator Squad, 15 pts ea

Alien Squad Leader Army - Human Imperial and Imperial Strike Force

These infantry models were surprising easy to paint:

Primer: White
Baseboat: airbrushed Tamiya Field Grey armor with Reaper Blue Steel Visors and grey weapons.
Wash: Nuln Oil.
Highlight: Vallejo Field Grey
2nd Highlight: Vallejo Field Grey mixed with Green Grey.

Power Armor teams (GZG)
Robotic Support
Battle Mecha (Iron Wind Metal Mechs)
The Battlemechs were airbrushed with various Tamiya colors: Medium Blue and JA Grey I do believe.  They were then washed with Min Way Polyshades Tudor.
Robotic Infantry (Shapeways)
Recon Droids (GZG)
Recon Droids were airbrushed in my standard Tamiy Metallic Grey scheme.  The Robotic Infantry are models I purchased off of Shapeways.  I have several more to complete.  They are 3D printed resin and VERY fragile.  They were done in the same colors as the vehicles below.
Heavy Droids (Khurasan)

The Heavy Droids were airbrushed in Tamiya Medium Grey, washed in Polyshades Min Wax Tudor then highlighted with Vallejo White Grey.

Imperial Strike Force

The Imperial Strike was done in the same colors as the Panzergrenadiers.  However, rather than using a black wash I used Min Wax Polyshades Tudor.  This resulted in a lighter base color.  This worked out fine for me since I was looking for something similar but different.

Armored Transports (Khurasan)
 All of the vehicles were airbrushed in Tamiya paints.  These vehicles have already been covered on this blog as has the method of painting.

This is the largest 15mm army, figure wise that I currently own.  Fat chance of ever using it all.


  1. Ah the light Having retired out of the 1ST Cav and still living 6 miles from a few hundred M1s and Bradleys I'm not at all tank Nice to see that
    I am not alone in this affliction....) Really like the Khurasan stuff, have yet to pick
    any up...yet lol. My GZG NSL is built along similar lines but a bit more mech heavy.

    1. Interesting. You were in artillery were you not?

      I would actually like to replace mine with GZG Hover vehicles.

    2. Yeah 20 years as a gun bunny...and play my music accordingly (Loud).

    3. Canadian armoured corps for me... to near that long though. Bradley' would never get me in one of those...or any IFV for that matter.

    4. Yes, they are a bit on the tall side, that point was driven home at the 1st Cav museum sitting side by side are a WWII Sherman and a Bradley and the latter is both taller and longer!
