Hi and welcome to Void Scar Miniatures – a small, but ambitious, tabletop miniatures company based in Nottingham in the UK.
Void Scar’s primary aim is to produce high quality 1/100 scale sci-fi models and an associated IP with accompanying wargaming rules. As things progress, Void Scar Miniatures will attend regular wargaming events too, where you will get to see the range of models up-close and previews of what’s coming.
The designs you’ll see are inspired by near-to-medium futuristic science fiction themes and ideas. Many integrate realistic aspects of modern and projected military concepts to create a collection of exciting and sensible model designs. New factions will continue this principle, with each unique in their own aethestic.
Join Void Scar on a journey to explore this vision and watch it grow. Please take a look around the Void Scar Miniatures site by clicking on the menu options above.
Be sure to swing by the Void Scar Miniatures Facebook page and say hello!
- Xeraak Triarchy First Look – Infantry
Today I thought I’d give you a brief overview of the new infantry releases from the upcoming Xeraak Triarchy Acquisition Roster.
The Centaur Scout Cyborgs are exactly that – a recon unit designed to rove ahead of the main force and find new avenues of attack. They’re particularly useful for helping big groups of Revenants get forward into the battle zone to get closer to their foes. Not only that, but Centaurs have significant firepower of their own, what with having a Plasma Carbine and a Plasma Accelerator, plus the ability to fire them both despite being infantry, making them more akin to a mobile weapons platform than anything else. Another trick up their sleeve is the ability forfeit an Order dice to ‘scan’ the nearby surroundings, enabling a friendly unit to reroll a failed Search attempt.
The Hunchback Gun Cyborgs serve as the Xeraak Triarchy’s heavy weapons infantry unit. Unlike other factions who tend to have different squads equipped for specific target types, Hunchbacks can fire their weapons in one of two settings, making them capable of dealing with different enemies. The Focussed setting is for engaging armoured targets such as tanks, whilst the Dispersed mode turns the Hunchback into mobile light artillery, firing indirectly if needed. Plus, what with being infantry, they are capable of traversing virtually any terrain to where their quarry might be hiding.
Which of these two are you most looking forward to?
Tune in on Monday to hear all about the Harvester Mech variants – see you there!

Not only that, but for the first time in a long time there coming alongside these fantastic models will be a brand new Acquisition Roster, enabling you to use the Xeraak Triarchy in your games of From Ashes, with background, rules and images of these units. Just like the others, it is going to be a free PDF download too!
That’s pretty much it really! Over the next few weeks you can learn more about how some of these units work in the From Ashes miniatures game and see which one(s!) jumps out at you most.
On a separate note, I just wanted to let you know that Verse Dominion and SFA units now come with the gen2 bases.
Lastly, this Friday you’ll get to learn more about the new infantry – the Hunchbacks and Centaurs, so make sure to keep an eye on this space for more info on this new exciting and enigmatic faction.

- Vapnartak ahoy!
Next on our calendar is the fantastic Vapnartak show in York this coming February 4th. This is Void Scar’s second time there, and we had a great time last year so really looking forward to this one.
Not only that, but there might *even* be some new Xeraak Triarchy available for purchase ahead of their general release….
See you there!!
- From Ashes Gaming Day Jan 14th Debrief
‘Twas another great day at Leadbelt yesterday, with plenty of folks playing exciting games of From Ashes. We even got to see some of the new Xeraak Triarchy units, with the Harvester Combat Mech going for a spin on the battlefield too! (And some great feedback from all those involved for its rules – thanks for that).
I’d like to just say a big ‘thank you’ to all who came along and we’ll do another one soon.
On a separate note, I just wanted to let you know that the Sol Enclaves infantry range will now come with the new gen2 infantry bases.
Right, that’s enough from me. See you soon!

- 2023 – What a year!
Well, what can we say? 2023 was quite the year! We had lots more shows to go to, and made plenty of friends along the way too. The From Ashes community is going from strength to strength, with new folks regularly joining the Facebook group and attending the From Ashes Gaming Day event where they’ve been sharing their experiences and creations with one another. It’s been so fascinating to see the direction people take their hobby journey.
The From Ashes rule system itself had gone from strength to strength, ever improving with your help. Player feedback is so helpful, especially to an ever-expanding, dynamic game like From Ashes.
The Verse Dominion and Sol Enclaves have both received new models, expanding their gameplay options. Not only that, but the next faction; the Xeraak Triarchy, have made their presence known on the battlefields of the Damnya Sector.
2024 will see this journey continue, with the new Xeraak Triarchy Acquisition roster, individual faction cards to improve gameplay flow, and work is starting on the Kymeron Free Republic too. (There’s plenty of other plans, but don’t want to give it all away too early to say the least!)
Much has changed, but it’s fair to say, we’re only getting started…
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for your support and joining us on this exciting adventure.
