Completed Pig Iron SciFi Figures

Buck

In addition to more WWII, I have been looking at adapting Combat Patrol™: World War II to science fiction.  The biggest hurdle was figuring out how to represent body armor, which I have done.  We are going to play a science fiction game at the club night tomorrow, so little by little, I have been painting up my recent acquisition from Pig Iron.  I am very happy with the figures.  They are a nice mixture of something reasonable with something a little bit Hollywood.  Other science fiction figures feature ridiculously large weapons.

Some of the figures have the visors closed and some have them with the visor’s open.  I made a ten-figure squad with the visors closed and will treat them as special operations types with better Guts, Accuracy, Morale, and Reaction attributes.

One of the things I like about the Pig Iron figures is that the weapon crews come with figures both moving and set up.

Interesting two-part rocket launcher, anti-tank gun, laser cannon, or something.

These guys will see action tomorrow, so watch for the battle report.

  1. It would be really cool if you could adapt for a Starship Troopers scenario! Looking forward to the Battle Report!
