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