|"Oh yeah, sure! With those things runnin' around? You can count me out."|
These five 32mm scaled resin "Prodos Games" miniatures of H.R. Giger's Aliens are from the company's "Alien Verses Predator: The Hunt Begins" board game. But can also be bought separately as AVP Alien Stalkers. Each model comes in a number of separate pieces, presumably in order to provide different poses, and are predominantly designed to be positioned somewhat forward facing, as if they are moving at speed. However as I wanted the Aliens to stand a little more upright than advertised, I simply repositioned their limbs in order to make them lean over less.
|"Let's just bug out and call it even, man!"|
I initially gave these "different kind of animal" an undercoat of "Citadel" Abaddon Black before simply dry-brushing each model with "Vallejo" German Grey. The Stalkers were then washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil before I applied a second, significantly lighter dry-brush of "Vallejo" German Grey over the figures' more prominently raised surfaces. Each Aliens' mouth was painted using a combination of "Vallejo" Gunmetal Grey and "Citadel" Nuln Oil, whilst their head carapaces were treated to a thick coat of Abaddon Black.
The "Alien Verses Predator: The Hunt Begins" board game comes with another ten Aliens in the shape of Infants, which I hope to have finished within the next few weeks in order to use for "Zombicide". However if you want to get a proper feel for all the miniatures within the game then I'd strongly recommend visiting "The Angry Lurker" and seeing all of Francis' hard efforts; as he's painted all of the figures which come with the box set already.
|"Pulp Figures" WIPs - Just some inking to do on the Hooded Minion|
With Bob Murch March drawing to a close, and my latest three Evil Hooded Minions simply waiting for their grass flock to dry, I thought I'd try and squeeze in some painting on a final few of the sculptor's "Pulp Figures". As a result I have finished block colouring the tenth (and last) of my Cultists from Bob's Weird Menace range and made some more progress on a couple of miniatures I've still outstanding from his Kojar And The Forest Tribe packet; a Tarzan-inspired blister which currently is currently only available as part of the Heroes & Personalities catalogue.
