As all the figures were out when I played I put a few more (but these are Deadzone Rebs) on the painting bench.  Finished these last night.

Group of new Rebs



The big thing



The purple thing



The red things



and finally some new recruits from the lead pile to join the scum of the galaxy (with The Boss for scale).  These are old Void figures I believe - love the sculpts but the humungous weapons are a little off kilter.

I'm not sure if it's my advancing years, but stoooopidly large weapons really annoy me now >:(

I have a stash of pistols and other normal sized weapons from various places (mostly Foundry Street Wars) and happily replace the silly ones with less silly ones.

Reaper have some figures guilty of this as well, including one with a sniper rifle as tall as the figure holding it (a bit like the one second right in your bottom picture :o)

Very nice job on a variety of aliens.

I am there too.  I know that heroically scaled weapons and hands are much easier to sculpt and see but it is annoying.

Great paint job on the Mantic figures, I like the idea for using them in Stargrave too.

I finally set up my resin printer over the holidays, and one of the things I love the most about it is that it lets me rescale weapon sets (or entire figures) intended to be heroic scale down to something more aesthetically pleasing.
