Xan Miniatures Prepare For Combat With 20mm Modern Soldiers

September 28, 2016 by brennon

Xan Miniatures have released some new 20mm soldiers for use in your Modern Military games. Regular infantry are available alongside some SOCOM soldiers too…

All of them look like they’re set for a tough mission. I like the detail on the weapons and it’s neat to see more models with beards! After chatting with a lot of folks about this it seems 20mm is the scale for Modern Military gaming.

These Checkpoint Soldiers would be good for when you’re planning out a scenario. I like the idea that you play out some kind of ambush where they’re having to deal with insurgents and protecting civilians at the same time.

Once they’ve been engaged in combat you could then swap them round for their Infantry In Combat.

While they have a lot of regular rifles here they also have a machine gun and shotgun as options too to help with other situations that might arise.

Finally, for when you’re planning a different kind of mission we also have a Sniper Team where you have a Spotter and Marksman getting ready to take down their target.

It’s neat to see a Spotter not crouched down with a pair of binoculars out and instead engaging in combat alongside the Marksman. I’m not sure how realistic that is but it looks cool!

You can see some more of their range HERE.
