Alien 3 and Alien resurrection miniatures
« on: September 20, 2011, 01:37:25 PM »
Hello,

We all play Aliens but not the other movies (I don't even think about the first one...one alien only).

I already have EM4, Copplestone marines and Horrorclix and LEG aliens.

I am looking for Alien3 prisonners (I already found the guards : EM4 and Sabotage miniatures). May be miniatures like Kev and baker from Hasslefree but what else as they need to be unarmed or armed with melee weapons ?

I can swap heads for bareheaded ones.

I am looking for Weyland Yutani commandos :

I am also looking for Alien resurrection characters (the ship crew of the Betty). The scientists are easier to find :

Any ideas ?

Thanks
I wish I were an octopus to paint more miniatures...Cthulhu must be a great painter

For the prisoners you might take a look at Offensive Miniatures' rioters. They might work with head and weapon swaps:

Pig Iron's Kolony Feral Blades might be another option, again with head and possibly weapon swaps:

As to the commandos, that's a tough one. You could maybe try Reaper's Nova Corp security. They don't have that padded look, but they have a similar feel:

The Betty..that's a whole another story.

I already thought about the Pig Iron ferals but arent' they a bit chunky (compared to Hasslefree for instance) ?

I totally forgot the Offensive miniatures : that's it for prisonners as they sell a hairless rioters pack. Awesome idea and I can also use them for modern or zombies games.

The Reaper nova marines aren't so bad with a little conversion, especially the last one.

Many thanks Manatic. I didn't know you were on this forum : I am a big fan of your blog and often browse it for Aliens and zombies miniatures.

That's a real pleasure to hear, really. Always glad to hear someone's reading the stuff!

By the way, the Denizen Ventaurans would probably work also as WY commandos, even if they're a bit on the small side:

Also lifted a size comp picture of the PI ferals from the Angry Lurker's blog:

You could use some of the Void/UW lines.  Might be smaller than others listed but they have all kinds of outfits.

This almost looks like the base Commander:

Maybe you could use some Red Blok minis from AT43 for the Commandos, they have the padded gear ;)
