My 10mm Sci Fi Project

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

My 10mm Sci Fi Project

Post by womble67 » Fri Apr 08, 2016 10:16 am

As a young lad I grew up watching all of the sci-fi Programs of the late 70s and 80s, There are a few which particularly stuck in my mind Aliens, Starship Troopers and of course War of the Worlds.

So I thought I would combine all of these interest into one sci-fi Project to simplify matters.

I have been asking for help from the pendraken forum for names for my warring factions, also some transport options for Pendragon SF15x Colonist in space suit and SF16x Colonist in space suits with heavy weapons. For aerial support I've decided to use Eagle from space 1999.

So any suggestions would be more than welcome.

Pendraken Miniatures are in the process I've added to their modern range so it's certainly worth keeping an eye on it. and to be honest it is one of my preferred manufacturers.
Thanks for posting much appreciated
