    One of my favourite film franchises ever.  I have small Aliens, big Aliens, LEGO Aliens, Alien video games, the works.  I need to know more about this game, please!

    Before I joined Facebook I thought that a) most people were reasonable and intelligent, and b) they could spell words correctly. Guess what ......

    I second Deephorse. First of all, it is lovely seeing some 54mm goodness here at TWW – we don’t see much of it and it’s by far my preferred scale. Everything is looking just great, like a scene out of Aliens, which I’d guess is the point. I’d love to hear how you sourced the figures and some details about the game planned. Can we hope for an AAR with pics?

    Well we often do show games in a bigger scale at the Warlords: (1/10th Star Trek, 1/35th Daleks; 1/35th Machinenen Krieger [or whatever it’s called], 1/6th scale Jason and the Argonauts and so on) or games with a bigger model use like 15mm Stingray but the subs were 8 inches long! The last couple of games we’ve done have been 15mm (Dark Side of the Moon and UFO) and we’ve done 15mm big games in the past (15mm Slammers on a 30ft long table…) but yes: it’s nice to do some propper ‘toy soldier’ sized gaming 🙂

    As for details, well I’ve only been helping out with the terrain modelling components and taking some snaps but I can say that the scenery is a combination of resin from Ainsty and (for the lift shafts) MDF and wire mesh. The figures are… not sure about that but the Aliens are a combo of heavily modded ‘collectable’ Aliens (modded mostly with heat and snapping heads and re-gluing to get more out of just the four basic poses) painted in metal dry brush and Tamiya clear acrylics.

    Rules will be a very heavily modded version of the old Leading Edge Games set from the eighties (as I recall).

    The guys will be having their first outing at Salute and – in my duties on the day of snapping the show for a write up in MW – I will certainly take some more pics!
