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!
- Armour, or is it Protection…?
Bit of a faux-pa on my end of things – it looks like a few references to Protection (which has been renamed as Armour in From Ashes 0.0.9 onwards) appears to have slipped-the-net in the Sol Enclaves, Devin Pact and Verse Dominion Acquisition Rosters. Suffice to say that these have all been corrected.

- Hereward Wargames Show!
Wow what a busy August it’s been. Not only the fantastic Britcon show, but it was Void Scar‘s Birthday too with plenty of exciting things to see. Well, we don’t stop there – this coming Sunday Sept 3rd is going to be the Hereward Wargames Show in Peterborough. It’ll be Void Scar’s first time there but really looking forward to coming along and chatting to everyone.
See you there!
- Void Scar’s Birthday!
Today, as you may have guessed, is Void Scar Miniatures’ Birthday. To celebrate the occasion there’s been cake at Void Scar HQ, but more importantly, there’s other fun stuff for everyone!
Without further ado, let’s get started:
From Ashes 0.0.9 is now available from the From Ashes Ruled Downloads page. This is FREE to download so you can get stuck into your games of From Ashes straight away. It’s been in the making for many months now with plenty of playtesting going into it, and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the best iteration of From Ashes yet. Again, the Acquisition Roster for each faction have been updated too and can be found in the From Ashes rules Downloads page – looks you’ve got a busy day ahead!
Next up, a little reminder that orders of £50 and over made between now and the 27th get a FREE Sol Enclave Anvil Tank Crew or a poster of your choice (while stocks last). I’ll drop you an email after your order to confirm which you’d like.
Also, there are several new products available from today:
Verse Dominion Taurus APC
Xeraak Triarchy Vehicle Upgrade Set
KFR Vehicle Upgrade Set
Sol Enclaves Anvil Laser Cannon
Sol Enclaves Anvil Plasma Cannon
Sol Enclaves Vehicle Upgrade Set 2
SFA Pathfinder Anti-Tank Squad
Xeraak Triarchy Meta Overseer infantry upgrade
Lastly, we have the following super-exciting previews of the next faction for From Ashes – the Xeraak Triarchy! These scientists-turned-conquerors have had to turn to their advanced technology to survive, building rank upon rank of cyborg thralls to do their bidding out in the Grey Zone. You can expect to see these models come-to-life later in the year.
Wow, I don’t know about you but that’s a lot of stuff to get your teeth into! What’s your favourite of the new releases, and also why not share with us which new Xeraak Triarchy unit you’re most looking forward to seeing ‘in the flesh’ (pun intended)?
Thanks for swinging by!

- A little preview of this week’s releases
With the upcoming From Ashes 0.0.9 release, each faction will be getting an updated Acquisition Roster which details the units they can use in their games.
The Sol Enclaves in particular are perhaps the most customisable faction, as you can choose to join one of the Primary Powers. This gives you access to their technologies and abilities, and as a result, their vehicles can be customised with the sponsor’s upgrades. This means that one Sol Enclave faction can play completely differently to another, with vehicles taking on different appearances to match.
Not only can Sol Enclaves now get access to SFA and Verse Dominion (well, Devin Pact) upgrades, but on the 23rd two new factions throw in to the ring, providing their allies with brand new technologies and weapon systems.
The Xeraak Triarchy Upgrade Set offers the powerful Plasma Repeater Turret to provide the host vehicle with a potent plasma weapon capable of defending the vehicle from close assaults, or just simply used to boost the vehicle’s firepower. The Shield Generator is exactly what it says on the tin and provides boosted protective capabilities to the host vehicle. Anvils which have joined the Xeraak Triarchy (or to use their correct sub-faction name, the Union of the Advancing Dawn) can replace their main cannons with a fast-firing Plasma Cannon which is capable of melting any target on the battlefield. Not only that, but the Meta Overseer from the Xeraak Triarchy range will also be available, which when attached to an infantry squad, provides a protective shield and an ability to boost nearby Leaders capabilities quite considerably.
On the other side of things we have the KFR, or Kymeron Free Republic, Vehicle Upgrade Set. The Laser Turret is another defence weapon but due to its onboard AI can quickly identify and engage multiple targets at once, making it one of the best counter-assault weapons in the game. Perhaps the most curious upgrade of all is the AI Core which provides the host vehicle an onboard artificial intelligence capable of shielding the vehicle from harm or expending its energies to temporarily take control and reroll a failed Discipline test when needed, which when combined with the Sol Enclave Freemen of the Republic sub-faction special rule Phoenix Protocols gives them a real edge in combat. Last, but by no means least, is the Laser Cannon Anvil upgrade which, while proving extremely accurate laser fire, can also be combined with any laser turrets on the vehicle to create a powerful laser beam capable of destroying anything in its path.
Not only that, but all Sol Enclaves forces all get access to the new Sol Enclaves Vehicle Upgrade Set 2, which includes the Optics and Tank Commander upgrades. The Optics increase the host vehicles of first hit probabilities if it has not moved, whereas the Tank Commander can lead spearhead assaults where friendly vehicles can activate alongside
Be sure to check back and customise your fleet of Sol Enclave vehicles!
These will be available on August 23rd along with the new Verse Dominion Taurus APC, updated From Ashes rules and the new Xeraak Triarchy previews.
