Preview – New Legions of Steel Miniatures

Recently I received some Legions of Steel Miniatures by Raybox Games. These miniatures are actually preview figures for an upcoming Kickstarter. Legions of Steel should march onto Kickstarter this fall.

For those that don’t know, Legions of Steel is a Sci-Fi Miniatures Board Game that most people would consider a “dungeon crawler.” The game returns from its first appearance in the 1990s.

Now, if this game interests you, be sure to follow their Facebook Page and their Facebook Group. Rayband Games posts plenty of interesting previews in those two spots.

With that out of the way, let’s take a look at these preview miniatures.

Disclaimer: Raybox Games sent Must Contain Minis a package of preview miniatures for review purposes. While I accept review products, I am in no other way compensated for my posts. I reserve the right to give positive and negative reviews of the products.

The Preview Miniatures

These new Legions of Steel Miniatures came to Must Contain Minis in a little box in the mail. In that box were a number of figures.

I dumped the contents of the package out on my desk to see what come in.

This miniatures came as single and multi-piece miniatures.

I noticed a small peg on the foot. That is likely where the hold injected the metal during the casting, but I figured I would use it as a “hex peg” like what I found on my GW figures.
To do so, I cut into the base the same way I did with my Cyberpunk Red Miniatures.

Now, these miniatures are preview miniatures. They are not the final figures that will go out to Kickstarter backers. As such, they are subject to change and I have seen the designer playing with the idea of designing these these figures for optional slotta bases.

In these images I saw, they played with the idea of shipping special bases where you can use the figures as either slots or snip the slots off and paste the miniatures straight to the base. Those bases are not the same as what shipped to me.

It will be interesting to see where things go.

Here we have one of the multi-piece miniatures.

Assembling Miniatures

I found the miniatures mostly easy to build. For some of them, I used my Citadel Assembly Handle so I didn’t have to hold the pieces while the glue dried. The handle can’t handle the larger pieces of the largest miniature, but for normal sized metal pieces, it works just fine.

Building the multipart metal miniature.
Here I use the Assembly Handle just so I do not have to hold the figure while the Super Glue dries. Kind of Handy.

Most of the miniatures came as a single piece, which is very easy to build. Just glue it on the base.

Another one of the robotic miniatures. Again, just saving my hands while the glue dries.
I really like the look on these sci-fi marine miniatures.

Scale Comparison Images

Below are scale comparison pictures of the new Legions of Steel Miniatures. These miniatures coming out in Raybox Games‘ next Kickstarter are all new designs. These are not the same miniatures as the ones from the 1990s. They are updated to today’s look and feel.

They are pretty close in size to a Primaris Marine. Perhaps a little shorter and much skinnier.
