Tough as Tungsten and loyal to the dirty end



Some beautiful figures from Khurasan, not yet available but hopefully soon. They have been previewed on TMP as the Jasmine Throne Foreign Battalion, but I chose a more classic paint scheme for mine...

They paint up very nicely, and would have been a lot easier if I hadn't decided on a monochrome uniform scheme. But I HAD to!

Jon sent me these as a very kind gift and I'm looking forward to completing them over the holidays. I'm finishing work for the year this week, which should leave ample time to do my Strike Force entry (Still waiting for minis in the post) these fellas, and get started on my Mighty Monsters project. Hooray for holidays!

  5. Thanks guys, It's nice to try a colorful force that hangs together on the table. We'll see how it works out as I go.

    Long live the Legion!

  6. Way to go with the classic Alien Legion paint scheme. It's good to see that Khurasan's minis can be painted up that way.

  9. Oh, if only you had a little Jugger Grimrod to kick their asses (or analogous anatomy) to the fray... Too cool! And... how has it taken this long for someone to cast miniatures with this concept?

  11. These are very cool indeed. We need a trio of diminutive armadillo types now.

    Wasn't one of them named "Mik"? Hmmm...

  12. Thank you all very much!

    The original series had standardized HEL guns, but in later versions the guns became quite abstracted. Thus, any figures with a little body armor coud easily be made into Legionaries IMO, this set is pretty special though and I'm really enjoying painting them up.

    Mik- You need to round up Nik and Rik ;)

  13. I remember those little dude. Their species didn't have names, so Jugger used a space Sharpee to scribble names on their helmets or something. Really kind of a sweet storyline of those three lil' dudes and the green psycho.

  14. The snail does not really do it for me but the Gecko chap is smart.

  15. Maybe the next family pet will be named "Rik", as for "Nik", I had to go and make my own:

  16. "Tough as Tungsten and loyal to the dirty end"

    Wasn't that the motto of Sarigar's ALIEN LEGION?

    Man I loved that comic!!!!!
