This will be great for my Dwarven stronghold and make a great objective in a game.
They will also make great bases for my Goblins to spill out of. They are covered in deep cracks and crags, these from a distance look like deep tunnels and caves.

Any how, with the release of another box of Dark Alliance war trolls, I got the idea of creating two Snow dwelling nightmares. I took my reference from the non-cannon game 'War in the North' and the Snow trolls created for that game.
YEARS to put some snow on a base...now's my chance at last.

Slightly dis appointed last night as I went to add the liquid masking fluid to the last two models, only to discover it had gone really watery and unusable for what I need. I might try keeping it in the garage to cool down as it might have been the temperature that effected it.

After a bit of looking around I found these toys on eBay. Just lately I found a larger version that will become a heavy VTOL. These flyers could be classed as attack craft with their huge forward plasma cannons, although I think I will use them as medium class VTOLs. Medium class can carry a single squad of Aliens (6) with the heavy class carrying two (12).
I imagine the hi tech Soriog wanting to get in close to their foes and quickly too. These grav VTOLs should be the answer. The rules (GRUNTZ) say If a VTOL is shot down in flight all on board are lost, that could a way of taking out a whole squad of very deadly and expensive Aliens.
IRON MITTEN TIP #34. Two paints that every Sci-fi painter should have in his paint rack. Tamiya Metallic blue and Miniature paints' Blue steel. If you are painting anything Alien these two paints will come into their own.

It brings great pleasure to use something you would normally throw away to make into a piece of hi tech scenery. Most of the buildings here are from Brigade miniatures, but the little glass skylight is a drinks cap from my sons favourite juice. The large red cap is from a water bottle.
I finally got to use my Tamiya mud pen on this little truck. I've only just found out you can water the mud down for a better effect. The truck was just given a brown wash and is ready to go, I didn't want to paint over all the tiny decals on it which work well for 15mm.
