Definitely freaky eyes!   They do look bloody menacing!   Testament to your paintwork no doubt!

Good work fella, really interesting collection.

Cheers Digits.

Herewith a Mech, scratch-built as some sort of Ultra Marine Heavy Walker / Giant Robot. Made from bits of toys and spray bottles etc.

Wow, that big stompy robot looks great. That’s really brilliant what you’ve done with a bunch of bits!

Cheers Pattus Magnus, Has Been and Grumpy Gnome. I still want to add a few more details to it like a small anti-personnel Gatling gun in the nose with some antennae, some ammo belts on the four rifled arm weapon and possibly a banner.

What a cool thread! That robot is perfect, love the size and how alien it looks. Could be straight from Half-Life 2.
And totally get you bought Dreadball Xtreme, a fantastic box for sci-fi games (with some cool scatter scenery too). And the game is great too! I really prefer it to Bloodbowl. Where Bloodbowl is quite slow and to me very tedious and a lot happens based on luck (some unlucky dice rolls and it's a turn over). Dreadball is much faster, dynamic and less dependant on those gotcha moments. And with exploding dice you have a lot of epic moments in the game. Recommended!

Cheers Malebolgia I still need to a ctually play Dreadball Xtreme - does look better than Bloodbowl - I took part at University at our wargames club in a Bloodbowl league my orc team was named after its captain Grugermarug who died in the first game so the team became known as the Grugermarug Memorial Team I am happy to say I came at the very bottom of said league  lol

Thank you Easy E, Aliensurfer,

Gun Bunny - the science team are really useful I imagine they could be good in superhero and pulp games too.

Well, herewith something bit different - tiny spaceships - but my hope is to play some sort of campaign starting with space battles that then lead to the invasion of a planet.

These are available from EM4 Miniatures available here:

This is funnily enough one of my favourite looks a bit like an F4 Phantom...



By the time I got to this one I was running out of ideas for colours but I am glad with how he came out...



I do like the two more alien looking vessels...

Herewith some more tiny spaceships these pictured alongside EM4 Miniatures are from the Buck Rogers Board Game. I do need to figure out a way to mount or base them. I did a purple one maybe as an ace or squadron leader.

Herewith a somewhat bigger ship a Star Wars Snowspeeder by Revell.

Still ideal for attacking 28mm miniatures...
