***To Directorate of Generals RNH*** Notice to mobilize all military forces for seizure of all military bases, armories and checkpoints along adjoining borders with the Phoenix Barony. ROE-use necessary force to subdue local militaries and civilian population.
***Recent attempts to seize border lands along the Six River Provinces has led to a state of emergency, prompting a preempitve military action against the PB. It is the hope of the Prime Minister of RNH that a show of unified force for our brethren in the SRP will send a message to cease any further attempts at invasion and to withdraw to within their borders. Further orders as situation progresses. Upates available on all military channels.***
---This is the start of a new storyline I am creating for my 15mm forces that I am working on, looking to find a set of rules that will work with a small group of colonies on a recently settled planet. Pics and more story to come shortly. Thanks for reading.

Well, as I continue down the 15mm rabbit hole I have decided on a very indepth story line for a universe that spans technology from as primitive as carrying a broasword with a Mosin Nagatz type rifle wearing standard fatigues, to a plasma blaster in powered body armor. So here are a few of the minis I'm looking to get and helps me keep better track of my list as well!
Pretty much at least one of each on this page... http://www.criticalmassgames.com/default.asp?category=arcfleet
A few of these...
Most of these Vehicles... http://www.criticalmassgames.com/default.asp?category=kaamadosvehicles
and a few of the Kamaados dominion minis as well.
Pretty much everything Khurasan Makes :))
