    I like it a lot. Are these figures always in khaki? Or are there other options?

    cheers Jay

    as far as I know, you can do them as you want.....this was inspired by modern US special forces more than anything. Turns out, so were Forgeworld in their Taros Campaign book.

    Nice looking progress Rob. I do like the Sci-Fi thing. Tried my hand at it once, never really got that far though. You know me and my Nappies! :lol: Will there be more Drop Troopers to accompany him or is he the Lone Ranger?

    Rob, Nice job. They are neat little figures to paint up. So what are your plans for a base/ groundwork?~Gary

    thanks chaps.

    This guy will be all on his lonesome, on a very small base, walking over a rusting walkway - going to get me some etched or stamped brass tread.......inspired by some of the excellent minis I've seen on other sites.

    Hi Rob

    He’s cool looking, love all the ware and tear on his helmet and goggles, there is so much detail in these 30mm figures its unbelievable how well its sculpted, but you do it justice Rob. how many do they have in their range...?

    Elysians at Forgeworld!!

    they're not cheap, by any imagination, but incredible multipart kits. Some fools buy whole armies of these guys to game with!!! :eek:

    So very cool. I'm going to get some of these, you've inspired me!!

    There's a guy here at work who's very heavily into Warhammer 40K so he said he'd lead me through the gaming part, as it does seem quite interesting. Do you game or do you just like painting them?

    Would be good to see more of these done by you.

    Regards

    Tim
