Dark Horse Robotech Miniatures

Dark Horse Miniatures had a line of Robotech minis in the late 1980s. They have become pretty rare, but are cool because they are larger versions of some of the "unseen" mechs. The DH minis are a larger scale than the Battletech minis, but some of the smaller ones fit in nicely in a game of Battletech. All of this is different from the Robotech minis produced by Palladium starting in 2014.

Mech Picture Spartan / Gladiator
This miniature is a Spartan, painted in the standard Robotech spartan scheme. It has a built-in torso twist ability and hand-painted UEDF insiginia. Dark Horse miniatures labelled this one "Gladiator"; both names appear in various sources.

STATUS: Completed 12/2014.


Mech Picture Veritech in Battloid Mode
This mini is painted in a Roy Fokker / Skull Squadron scheme.

STATUS: Custom job, completed April 2010.


Mech Picture Veritech in Guardian Mode
This mini is painted in a blue Max Sterling scheme.

STATUS: Custom job, completed April 2010.


Mech Picture Veritech in Fighter Mode
This Valkyrie is painted in the colors of Skull Squadron. When I obtained the mini, it had damage to the tail fins so I had to resculpt them from scratch (check out the other Veritech Fighter minis on this page to compare). I was experimenting with painted horizon techniques on the fighter's stand, as you can see from the first photo.

STATUS: Completed 4/2007.


Mech Picture Excaliber / Tomahawk
Here's an Excalibur painted in the classic 3025-era 1st Davion Guards scheme. As with my other big DH minis, this one has torso twist. As an added bonus, I built it so it can only twist the amount possible in the game (as opposed to 360 twist, which is easier to pull off).

STATUS: Custom job, 1/2006.


Mech Picture Excaliber / Tomahawk
Battletech players know it as the unseen Warhammer, Robotech fans know it as the Excaliber. This mini is larger than the Warhammer figure for Battletech. As you can see from the pictures, it was assembled with torso twist and movable arms. This one is painted in a MW4 "Treeline" camo with Eridani Light Horse markings.

STATUS: Custom job, 3/2004.


Mech Picture Raidar X / Defender
Battletech players know it as the unseen Rifleman, Robotech fans know it as the Raidar X (or alternately Defender). This mini is larger than the Rifleman figure for Battletech. However, with the new scale, it fits in with Battletech figures quite well. As you can see from the pictures, it was assembled with torso twist and movable arms. No, really! They're pretty sturdy, so this mini is posable but not likely to fall apart. The paint job is an airbrushed gray winter / urban camo, with generic markings. Note the pin-up art on the right leg. ;)

STATUS: Completed and sold, 1/2003.


Mech Picture Phalanx / Spartan
This is a Robotech Phalanx destroid (Battletech Longbow). It is painted in a WWII "Me 262" camo, and features generic markings. As with my other big DH minis, it is equipped with a torso twist. It is confusing to me that some sources (including Dark Horse Miniatures) call this one "Spartan", and others call the Gladiator "Spartan".

STATUS: Custom job, 1/2006.


Mech Picture Veritech in Fighter Mode
This Veritech has been painted blue to match the one flown by Max Sterling.

STATUS: Custom job, completed 5/2002.


Mech Picture Veritech in Guardian Mode
This Veritech has been painted to match the one flown by Roy Fokker of Skull Squadron. This is the original inspiration for Land-Air Mechs (LAMs) in Battletech.

STATUS: Custom job, completed 5/2002.
