Starship Troopers Board Wargame
« on: July 03, 2020, 07:00:43 AM »
Hello everyone.

Quite a few years ago, there was a wargame of The Starship Troopers films.
Here is a picture:

Sadly, this no longer exists, given that other Games such as the Classic Doctor Who one is available from Black Tree Design, I was wondering if you guys know if another company might be selling this?

Thanks.

Rebel miniatures sell some of the metal models: (http://www.rebelminis.com/screecher.html http://www.rebelminis.com/sciencefiction.html). The plastics have not been available in many years to my knowledge.

I think Eureka had a metal range, and possibly GZG, but that might have been the Eureka ones as well.

Plastic moulds and moulding needs a lot more care and attention than metal or resin.

Plus, as a licensed product it is likely they were scrapped when the license expired.

Where's the shower scene?

I think I still have a load of stuff if you're interested? Definitely got two boxes worth of bugs plus a tanker and a load of the plastic animated series infantry, character types and some assorted other bits.
Might even have the rulebooks and templates etc. Pm me if interested.

Some of 1st Corps sci-fi figures are rather movie-ST like. Small 28s. Nice figures.



Sadly GZG stopped making their 28mm bug figures. If you talk them into restarting, let me know...

If you don't mind 2.5D papercraft, check out the following links for free bug templates in PDF format. The Warrior bug is bottom left here: http://onemonk.com/onemonk-dl.html Hopper bug is in the "Hoard Of The Procrastinators" center second up from the bottom at http://onemonk.com/fh-2017.html (as well as my pink/magenta refits for the Bugs to match my pink alien terrain.)

I have a copy of the game in the box as well as one of the boxes of Bugs I think.  I'm in the US.

Eureka got a C&D about their "Chaos chickens" and "chaos weasels" (Aliens) quite a few years back and stopped doing them.

Yes me too. I would love more of these as big bugs in 15mm as well as to use in 25mm skirmish.

I worked on that boardgame. For AvalonCon, I ran a large-scale demo game using 3/75" action figures for the Troopers and the 12" long Galoob Warrior bugs. Was really fun.  :)
