I thought about this fleetingly and had the notion to use some "dollies" with head swaps and just do a paint job on them. Also lots of heroclix "lycra" clad miniatures that may be suitable with a paint job?

Not sure Jim... looking at my love of cyber zen and the potential for rolling the matrix, deus ex and this into one techno buddhist zen descarté utopian theme. ;)

Need to remember this; gf can't get into too many games, but is a sucker for anything 'Buddhist'.  ;)

I've considered doing this a few times. I mostly really like the idea of making a fractal terrain board :)
So many projects..... so little time.......

I have some paint that react to UV light with different color response: they should be PERFECT for tron miniatures. You can just have your table exposed to Wood Lights (they are quite cheap!) and have a REAL tron setting!!!

Some of the sculpts from Effigy Miniatures could work but Tom Mason just went full time for MERCS minis and looks to have closed up shop: http://effigyminis.blogspot.com/

Bought at the end of November so on the way.  ;)

I suppose I'm looking from my perspective at three layers (of suffering). The real (organic existence,  die here you die etc.. plus Ior minus squidy robots of death. The matrix/system, (laws of physics don't apply, whoaa factor, sentient programmes requiring 'hosts' death is not permanent) and finally the source (Tron, ISO's sentient programs, data monks, factual worlds, gladiatoral combat death here is final. daft punk playing etc...).

Or at least that's the thinking so far. It could work. Almost like a decartes vision of inception where the brains in jars shift from organic to shared organic/digital to true digital.

Not sure if androidsdo dreamof electric sheep, but this will keep me up for a good few nights working it out. ;)

Erm no, actually.

Ordered a few heroclix supers for some bodysuits. Headswops should work well. Checked my deadzone box and crappy little goblin chap so will need to order a couple of minis.

I suppose plastic eldar guardians might work with Headswops too.

That would work quite well, don't forget the dark eldar as well.

These would make great heads for CLU's Sentry or black guard if you filled in the mouth area. Got them somewhere will need to dig them out.

The hunt continues for a good body donor.

Tron: Uprising had some great concept work done for vehicles etc and a lot of inner city design work. Definately worth looking through.

If you're looking at Eldar then the Dark Eldar Wyches may be your best bet for starting figures. The flesh can just be painted as a different part of the body suit.



And the Forge World Corsairs may be a good start for the drop troops.



And I assume you've seen this Yu Jing force?
