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:








...and as the motion sensors start picking up movement, they see shapes ahead:














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:




The aliens screech forward:








On the left flank, troopers remain steady & open up with opportunity fire at the onrushing beasts:






On the right flank, more aliens approach the compound:






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:




...who manage to force them back:


Further intense firing takes out more of the seething monstrosities:


...but they're relentless - and fast:








Fast and furious combat tears apart more vehicles:


Aliens consolidate into combat:






...and quickly overrun - they're in!








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!

nikharwood

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!

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...
