NSL WALKER camo test

first of 3 walkers for my mechanized infantry NSL force. walker is a 28mm model from Enigma games(oop). Scale figure is GZG NSL power armored trooper. My normal armored troops are grey fatigues with burgundy rose armor-matching the walker.
I think this makes a nice armored infantry support /scout mech.

squid horde

here is my squid horde; 180 octopods with attitude ready to defend their homeworld.
these are by 15mmuk. and were painted by my friend Jason-TMP/SAXON DOG.
I realize not much detail can be seen and will provide detail shots in a later post.
This was just to show off what an amazing site they are in mass.a very intimidating horde
to be sure. While I would not rate them as the best sculpting ever, they really do grow on you and look great painted up.
and the sheer joy of not having to paint 180 orange jumpsuits is a good feeling to relish. I'm sure saxon dog is still seeing orange when he closes his eyes.

painted squad of ????

These are 20 soldiers( sorry forgot manufacturor) that a friend of mine painted for me. They are actually quite large for 15mm, actually standing about 20mm. The figures are very nice, made even better by the fantasticpaintjob by Jason- TMP/ SAXON DOG.I feellikkemy camerawork really does an injusticeto this paintjob. Only two poses , but they remind me a little of Battletech troopsfrom the game battletroops- it must be the guy wth the shoulder SRM. and their helmets are very beaky, which isgreat.
These 20 guys will see service as maybe a mercenary band of tall aliens.

walker for 15mm

just a quick peek at a walker I have had for many years.(I actually have 9 of them).
bought them many moons ago for use in wh40k( when one could not buy sentinels).
a little small for 28mm ,but I think it looks good next to old style NSLtrooper-GZG.
These are very heavy, and I believe the manufacturor was the now defunct Enigma out of canada.
some arre open cockpit(why) and most have the underslung gatling. a few have shoulder mounted hunter killer
missiles. very bulky, not a lot of crisp detail...but 9 walkers I dont have to buy.

xcom snakemen color test

hey, 5 Critical mass games snnake mercenaries painted as XCOM snakemen.
not really my choice of color, but I wanted to be true to the look of the video game.
I am thinking of using hex bug nano habitats for alien ship interiors.
As far as Xcom sectoids, I plan on using Khurasan new alien greys;
Chrysallids will probably be Khurasan plutonians. I still need to figure out for floaters and ethereals
and the normal xcom trooper(3 stages depending on jumpsuit/armor/power armor)
GZG for small drone tanks, Khurasan deathroids, and/or new scout disk for Cyberdisk
any suggestions for Mutons, and zombified xcom troopers/civilians
These guys were a rushed paintjob(no wash /hilites)
For rules, I was considering FUBAR FPS variant or maybe ae bounty, suggestions?
