Ducks!

Buck

My buddy Ma’k made some molds of these long out-of-production figures.  They are ducks from the RuneQuest line.  He gave them to me a few months back, and this weekend I was able to get them painted.

I painted half with the “sun” design on their shields and the other half with the “moon” design.  This unit should see action in the near future, I hope.  The the feathers fly!

Giant Space Aliens

A few months back, I ordered some giant space aliens to go with my growing science fiction figure collection for Combat Patrol™.  This weekend I finally finished painting them.   I decided that the giant, fierce-looking aliens would look good in ice-cream colored uniforms.

I think for a science fiction game it is neat to have some oversized creatures.  Not everyone on every planet might be the same size.

I like the leader with the whip and pistol.  He’s ready to keep his rough and ready squad in line — or conduct his lion taming show in the circus.

"We have come for your women..."

“We have come for your women… Stand aside!”

I hope they don’t have trouble fitting through the hatches when they board and attack the space ship I intend to build.
