Alien Denizens

Been out a lot this week so no fresh work Im sad to say. It was very nice to catch up with my old flatmate Mr. Dave Taylor and family, visiting from the US. Also my best friend of over 20 years, Justin, visiting from Japan!

Here are my last 3 alien figures sculpted by Eli (of Loud Ninja games) sold by 15mm.co.uk
The basing is now finished, this pic is a little old. Once again, very fun to paint and Im looking forward to the next wave!
In other news, Im currently re-evaluating my urban terrain... The ruins look a great deal better than the cleans. Solution? Ruin up the cleans!

  1. Hi, Jacker: Nice work. I'm going to use the two characters on the left of the picture in a Scifi scenario one of these days.

    You know, you have to be a mother to love these two young-ones!

    1. Thanks Jay! I have quite a collection of painted alien folks now, and I too am looking forward to using them in a game. I should resolve to play more games this year, as it always seems like I have a different project to build or another task that takes precedence.

  2. Top dollar as always! Looking forward to ruined cleans, er......

    1. Gunrunner, it will be a relief. If I ever jump ot to 28mm Infinity gaming, maybe that's when I will attempt a clean city. For now it's time to unify my collection into either bombed out ruins (grey bases), or wind blasted shanty town (brown bases)!

    2. Ah, limited palette- very sensible!

  3. The pink one on the right looks a bit like the big people from "Fraggle Rock". Maybe it's the stringy hair and lumpy nose... I don't think I saw those other two - Opinionated Alien and Suspicious Character - on children's TV, however.

    1. I really like "Opinionated Alien" as a meme. Maybe he should be the site's new mascot...

    2. Actually the meme he most resembles is "The Rent is Too Damn High Guy". But if you post a straight-on shot of him, we can make Opinionated Alien into his own meme ;)

    3. LOL, glad folks like the gesticulating alien merchant :)

  4. Heh, I see my early and lifelong exposure and love of Jim Henson is is showing through. While none of the figures is based on any particular "muppet" I have always like the Henson aesthetic.

    I will say that the hooded fellow is not called a "Fragalian" by accident.

  5. These guys look great as usual! Glad to hear you've got all kinds of fun distractions in town too, if you see Dave again tell him I said, "Hey!" and have a pint for me.

    A pint of beer, not something like ice cream.

    But you know, have some ice cream for me too.
