The β„‚^∧ 2𝔫 models are analogue models which generate Lagrangians for quasiparticles on ℝ^1,3 from antisymmetric vector products on Grassmann manifolds. This paper introduces β„‚^∧ 18, the smallest member of this series which is capable of hosting a quasiparticle spectrum analogous to the Standard Model. Once all gaugeable degrees of freedom have been fixed, the particle spectrum of β„‚^∧ 18 is seen to resemble the Standard Model plus two additional weakly interacting bosons and a ninth gluon.
