lol, anyone on here remember the INAPs?

I do.  Also Huntarrs, Alien Hunters (although I don't think that part of the Kickstarter actually got made), and a few other variations on the theme over the years.

Looks great!

Yes. I use them (cloaked) together with the Copplestone ones (uncloaked) in games.

Nice one Sgt. T, I regret not getting any when I could  :'(.

Bloody good game it looked like to :D

Great stuff Paul, glad you're getting games in  8)

^^ What Hagrid said.

Great eye candy too.

Incidentally, I have organised a game using GH tonight for four neighbours, who are all newbies to gaming.
Two have played once before and are eager for another game, whilst two are virgins.

Looks fantastic, and sounds like you guys had a fun game (which ultimately what really matters in the end).
On time, on target, or the next one's free

Belated thanks to all of you that commented. Cheers  :)

Any possibilty you can reveal the full "stats" you used for the individual models? Skills and so on... or am I missing something?

My apologies, I missed this earlier.  ::)

Elite Team: Crew trait - Coolheaded
Dutch - Leader, Veteran, Encouraging, Inspiring. +Autorifle +Sword
Sniper - Sniper Ranged Fighter. +Sniper Rifle +Autopistol
Op #1 - Loads of Ammo. +Autorifle
Op #2 - Loads of Ammo. +Autorifle
Medic - Medic. +Autorifle
Gunner - Strong. +Machinegun

Predators: Crew trait - Camouflage. All armed with (shoulder-mounted) Laserpistols
Hunt Leader - Leader, Impervious, Ferocious, Tough as nails +Sword
Pred #1 - Indomitable, Ferocious +Sword
Pred #2 - Ferocious
Pred #3 - Ferocious
Pred #4 - Ferocious

I tried to make the Elite Team 'shooty' and the Predators 'fighty'.  It seemed to work out fine.  Much ammo was expended, reloaded, expended.... by the team.  Once the Preds got into melee it got ugly for the unlucky team member.


2022 Lead Tally: Acq: 171 Ptd: 029  Total: -142
2021 Lead Tally: Acq: 465 Ptd: 127  Total: -338

Thanks! I like a bit of inspiration rules wise, even if I have already played a bit.  :)

Looks like a really great, and fun game, especially for the humans.

Good thing they ran across a 5th string group of Preds, instead of much more seasoned ones, or things would no doubt have been a lot worse.  LOL

Thanks for sharing your stats.

I was toying with the idea of doing something like this as well.

Are the minis the 15mm/18mm ones, or larger figs?

The detailing is so nice on them that it appears they may be bigger than the smaller scale humans and predator minis I'm aware of for doing something like this.  I'm not aware of any suitable 25mm/28mm+ humans suitable, but do know about the various Preds figures offered, including the rare HorrorClix ones.

@Mako

I was the Predator player. I deliberately made it as even as I could. Sometimes the luck of the draw (of cards from the deck) doesn't go with you. Sometimes you're just unlucky, like the hunt leader taken out by the first shot at him. Regardless it was a fun game with nothing a foregone conclusion.

The minis are all 28mm from Copplestone.
The Predators are  packs FW25 & FW32.  https://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/list.php?cat=1&sub=35&page=1
The team came from various Trooper packs.  https://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/list.php?cat=1&sub=32&page=1

Minifigs have the old Rogue range, including all the team members from the movie. http://www.miniaturefigurines.co.uk/Catalogue.aspx?ScaleID=23&CategoryID=85&SubCategoryID=368

If you mean that last pic of the Minifigs/Rogue miniatures, I'm afraid I can't claim it (sadly).  It is a pic I found online to show what they look like. (Edited my previous post to make that clearer)
