To enliven my gaming table a bit I thought about adding some miniature furniture. Nothing fancy, a couple of tables and chairs in order to make nice objectives for skirmish games. However, it proved quite difficult to find manufacturers which produce that kind of stuff. While there is lots of furniture for 28mm out there, in 15mm this seems to be a neglected area.
As I wasted some time for research, I decided I might as well share the meager results so others don’t have to waste their time. Again I have to express my thanks to the knowledgeable chaps at the WD3 forum who pointed me to some interesting stuff. So without further ado here is my list of 15mm furniture:
Historical and Fantasy
Antenocitis Workshop makes the nicest set I’ve seen so far. It even includes a piano and a grandfather clock! The style is more 20th century than fantasy, so it wouldn’t work for medievals but would certainly pretty up a pulp scenario.
Peter Pig has a set of ‘Normandy furniture’ which includes a bed with removeable mattress, a chest of drawers and another piano. Also useful for building barricades for urban combat scenarios.
Museum Miniatures offers a set of two tables and four benches hidden in the pirates range. No image, but I guess this would be the typical outdoor tavern furnishing, ready for a hearty brawl!
Essex also offer table and four chairs in their fantasy range.
A more specialised offer is the Western furniture set available from Blue Moon Manufacturing. This is rather comprehensive and should cater for saloon shoot-outs and similar scenes.
Finally, among Splintered Light Miniatures‘ dungeon crawl range you can find two book shelves and two treasure chests. Those come in two versions, a normal one and a transmuted one. I especially like the warped shelf, which would also make a nice addition to Lovecraftian games – maybe the Necronomicon is hidden somewhere between those volumes…
Modern and Science Fiction
Khurasan Miniatures have a rather nice, a bit post-modern looking set of chairs, table, couch, oven and even a small desktop computer. A great place for Redshirts to lounge and update their facebook status before heading off on their mission…
Finally, Mad Mecha Guy offers a surprising variety of MDF furniture. Apart from the usuals such as chairs and tables, he does some nice office desks and even things like armoury racks and sun loungers!
Of course, for modern and sci-fi there is always the possibility to get some H0 railroad stuff. Companies such as Preiser have all kinds of furniture sets available. For my taste, most of it looks like it was purchased at the local IKEA (or worse), but this might be just the thing you are looking for in your zombie games…
And that’s all I could find! If you come across other 15mm furniture, just drop me a line and I will amend the list for future reference.
EDIT: Splintered Light dungeon furniture added. Thanks Dagger&Brush!
