Post by: nikharwood on 13 October 2011, 12:29:01 AM
Alert! With motion sensors blaring warnings through the processing outpost, troopers stand-to:

Especially when Mrs Nik see what he's done to the internal of her washing machine motor!  ;)

Seriously - look good so far. Where are the sentry drone guns, placed ahead of the combat force?

Haha, I was thinking something similar, or that Nik's been raiding the plumbling shelves at his local B&Q!

It's amazing what you accumulate over the years if you try hard enough  ;)

I just need to [at some point] find the time to sort these properly [as Michael from Angel Barracks has done with his Fruit Shoot & Laptop keyboard base] rather than keeping them in a box & bunging them on-table!

Anyway, these are some teaser pics - hoping to get a chance to fight this one out over the weekend...

LOL  ;D

I'd quite happily be shot into space if all astronauts were that pretty :-[

The troopers stand alert, peering into the murky twilight:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42774.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42775.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42776.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42781.jpg)

...and as the motion sensors start picking up movement, they see shapes ahead:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42777.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42778.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42786.jpg)

The troopers wait until the hissing aliens come within short range & open up to good effect - the light tanks & the IFVs bringing their fire to bear:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42787.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42788.jpg)

The aliens screech forward:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42789.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42790.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42792.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42793.jpg)

On the left flank, troopers remain steady & open up with opportunity fire at the onrushing beasts:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42794.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42795.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42796.jpg)

On the right flank, more aliens approach the compound:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42798.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42799.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42800.jpg)

The first contact with the IFV sees the aliens rip through it like the proverbial hot knife...and the bugs rush onwards, slamming into the desperate troopers:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42801.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42802.jpg)

...who manage to force them back:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42803.jpg)

Further intense firing takes out more of the seething monstrosities:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42804.jpg)

...but they're relentless - and fast:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42805.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42808.jpg)

Fast and furious combat tears apart more vehicles:
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42810.jpg)

Aliens consolidate into combat:

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42812.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42814.jpg)

...and quickly overrun - they're in!
(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42815.jpg)

(http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f175/nikharwood/FWC%2010mm%20scrap%20oct11/STA42816.jpg)

Game over, man...game over.

All your bases are belong to us:

Awesome, great looking scrap there!

And I've got a great new thread to send people to for SciFi pics!

Nice little scrap you had there amigo 8). I love the alien creatures and will get these in the future for some FWC action.

Great battle report. Against Aliens resistance is vain.

Great bug hunt  or should I say... great human hunt!

Do you use future commander rulesets?

It is always a really pleasure to see 10mm sci fi figures in action!

Glad you've enjoyed this one - thought it'd be nice to have a scrap which didn't feature the Colonial Marines! This was a fascinating one as well because the first half of the battle went overwhelmingly in favour of the humans - only for that to be completely overturned once the bugs got into melee in equal-ish numbers...scary beasties!

Do you use future commander rulesets?

Yes - these were played with FWC lists [HoF for troopers & Bug Colony for Aliens] - nosher's Aliens variants are much better though IMHO when you're looking to recreate the films etc...
