My buddy, Willy, just acquired the out of print, pre-painted miniatures from Rackham Entertainment.
After ooohing and ahhing over the fine scultping and paint jobs (not bad at all for pre-painted) we immediately dragooned these bad boys and proxied them for Battle Lore (2nd Edition). Much fun were had by all!

As I continue to play and enjoy Ars Victor, I've been on the hunt for the discontinued and out-of-print MechWarrior Clix figures that are suited well for this conversion.

Another round of hybrid gaming converting the Command and Colors: Ancients board and blocks game into a miniatures game using 6mm miniatures from Baccus and the Hexon terrain system. All the minis and Hexon tiles were supplied by Mikey.

Note the use of string to demarcate the battlefield zones
|Obviously a more visually satisfying gaming experience |
playing with minis on a terrain table, IMHO and of course, the
Command and Colors system is perfect for this type of conversion
|This was definitely a challenging terrain for the Romans|

I finally found the proper materials to simulate metal grate flooring that's perfect for skirmishing my 28mm sci-fi miniatures. Go down to your local hardware store and look for 2'x4' clear prismatic plastic lenses. I bought 3 panels that can be arranged to make a 4'x6' playing area. More than enough for skirmishing.
