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!
- I’m back!
I’m finally back from a busy summer break with family, and well-rested I am too (sort of!). I guess that means back to work right?
Well, today is a big deal as I’ve got several exciting things to share with you – From Ashes 0.0.6, updated Strike Forces and a little preview of what’s to come…
From Ashes 0.0.6 update is here!
First up, From Ashes has been updated to 0.0.6, along with all the Acquisition Rosters. This is a big rules dump today, rather than a simple tweaking of values and the like. As I mentioned in the video I posted a while back there are several big changes, namely the new Critical Damage system, certain weapons having an Attack value equal to the unit’s remaining HP, and many others. I thought I’d copy-and-paste the update summary list from the back of the rules down below for you to have a look over yourself.
The From Ashes 0.0.6 update and accompaning Acquisition Rosters are available to download here:
Updated Strike Forces
Next up, the SFA Strike Force has been updated on the webstore, with the Fire Support Squad now being split into two weapon-specific units, and the Raven being replaced with the Aurora MRS artillery unit. The Chosen Guard have also received their very own Strike Force rather than being a side-thought of the SFA, and with a couple of funky new rules in their Acquisition Roster, means they can more closely integrate themselves with the Verse Dominion. Of course, let’s not forget that the Verse Dominion have their own Strike Force too. These come with a little discount compared to buying them all separately, and each is enough for a 300 Req army – ideal for starting out in From Ashes. It’s also worth throwing in here that on the webstore, the Chosen Guard have their own category so you can easily find what you need to add to your army.
Lastly, a little apology.
Earlier in the year you may have seen a roadmap showing the upcoming releases from Void Scar Miniatures, which talked about a new Verse Dominion APC and SFA dropship. These are coming, but things do change, and sadly they’ve had to take a bit of a backseat for now. Instead, some other things on the way first, and I wanted to give you a little preview of what’s to come…
As a thank you though for your continued support of Void Scar, and to mark the release of From Ashes 0.0.6, every order made over £60 during September will get a few extra goodies thrown in, specifically some Blast Markers, Smoke Markers and a pack of yellow dice too!

- Summer Break Announcement
I hope you’re having a great hobby-filled summer, but alas it is time for a short summer break myself where I get to spend some quality time with family.
From August 13th through to August 29th, orders can still be taken via the Void Scar Miniatures website but won’t be shipped until August 30th, so if you need anything before then, make sure you get your order in over the next few days.
However, when I’m back I’ll have From Ashes version 0.0.6 ready to go along with updated Strike Forces for the SFA and Chosen Guard!
Might even have some previews to show off too…

Today I thought I’d share with you some fantastic shots CB Miniature Painting Studio has done on his diorama with some Void Scar models.
What do you guys think?
- New SFA and Chosen Guard units have arrived!
Welcome back to the third stop-off on our 2021 roadmap. Today, we’ll be adding further additions to to the ever-expanding Void Scar Miniatures range of models and rules.
Last month we saw the Verse Dominion receive reinforcements from off-world – the Rhino, Reaver and Goraths. To answer the growing threat, the SFA has provided more vehicles and equipment to its forces in the form of several new Bullfrog variants, namely the Grendel APC, Snapdragon SPAAG and Aurora MRS. The Anvil has also received a firepower upgrade with its powerful Heavy Railgun for engaging newly emerging near-peer adversaries being encountered out in the Grey. Lastly, the hordes of enemy infantry who often assail SFA ground forces has also caused a reaction within their senior battle planners, with the introduction of modular Pintle HMGs capable of being installed on any SFA vehicle.
As the SFA’s expansion is met with increasingly capable enemy armoured vehicles, the Anvil has received a potent firepower upgrade in the form of the Heavy Railgun. Capable of firing metal slugs at extreme speeds, the kinetic energy impact is more than enough to atomise whatever finds itself unfortunate to be in th Anvil’s sights.
The Grendel APC maintains the Bullfrog’s high transport capacity yet still provides overwhelming anti-infantry firepower. A roof-mounted rear turret has two heavy machine guns installed, which send a fusillade of fire down-range to answer the hordes of enemy infantry swarming across the battlefield.
Despite enemy air power being relatively light out in the Grey, the SFA realise that it’s better to have the protection of AA coverage before an attack, rather than after. The Snapdragon SPAAG is a straightforward turret addition to the Bullfrog, but unlike other similar variants, can easily engage multiple air targets which find themelves in the local airspace. Not onty that, but the primary autocannons can be pointed downwards to engage surface targets as well, with its armour-piercing rounds even capable of threatening the heaviests of enemy tanks.
Shrieking overhead, rockets launched from the Aurora Multi Rocket System will be sure to pin enemy infantry units in place or score a lucky direct hit on enemy vehicles and damage the weaker top armour. With the new FOB rules in From Ashes 0.0.5, your Leader units can even request the Aurora’s indirect fire when they are held back in reserves!
Lastly, the Pintle Heavy Machine Gun can be attached to any of the current range of SFA vehicles to provide that extra bit of firepower when engaging infantry squads, and is ideal for fending off enemy close assaults.
The Chosen Guard have also received reinforcements, as they too can take SFA Auoras and Verse Dominion Reavers to help in their battles across Kommodas, but of course ‘modified’ to suit their own strategies and battlefield tactics.

- New Verse Dominion rules and models inbound!
Hi again folks!
Continuing our 2021 Schedule, today we have some very exciting news with the release of more units for From Ashes’ second faction – the Verse Dominion.
Now with their very own Acquisition Roster, you too can crusade across the Damnya Sector with these freedom fighters turned religious zealots. Your infantry squads have been reinforced with several new models – the Rhino Assault Tank, Gorath Heavy Infantry and the Reaver Attack Buggy. Now that they have a good selection of units at their disposal, they can bring their heavier forces planetside and wreak havoc across the world of Kommodas and beyond!
Rhino Assault Tanks act like oversized battery rams, storming across the battlefield where they use their powerful cannons and rockets to obliterate enemy armoured vehicles, and pintle-mounted machine guns to suppress nearby infantry. Protected behind thick layers of Skimmer Plate armour, Rhinos can easily shrug off incoming attacks before delivering devastating shock-fields assaults as they smash their way into the very heart of the enemy.
Reaver Attack Buggies provide the Verse Dominion with a tactically flexible unit capable of fulfilling different roles on the battlefield based on its loadout. The gatling gun ‘Shredder’ variant can send devastating volleys of incendiary rounds down-range to pepper infantry, or even aircraft who find themselves flying too low. The tank-hunting rocket launcher ‘Busta’ variant instead waits in ambush to snipe enemy armoured assets at a distance from the safety of cover.
Gorath Heavy Infantry are quite simply sheer brute muscle combined with savage staying power. Using their Heavy Shock Rifles they can obliterate enemies from afar or use their tremendous strength to tear them apart up close. Whichever way they’re used, no Verse Dominion commander would leave home without some Goraths watching their back…
See you on the frontline, commander.
