28mm Painted AVP Predators, Colonial Marines and Aliens........

......from Prodos Games.

Received the AVP (Aliens vs Predator) boxset from a friend, he had received 3 from the kickstarter but while talking to him over the proceeding months he never seemed to have the painting time, so for his birthday I painted him the figures so he could game with a painted set!

Figures are resin, very light (I weighted the bases), good detail especially the predators, hard to clean and one ridiculous pose of a marine with his foot in the air (I molded some green stuff to at least make him stable!).

Poor pictures but the situation for the moment is causing some disruption!

  7. These are so good It makes me sad that you have left the country. Where is the voice of reason in the Rejects now. It will have to be Lee for sure it will not be Ian, Ray or Postie!

    3. Well clearly Ray has a problem always repeating himself yet saying nothing!

      As for Lee being "dodgy as Hell" which other Reject would you Suggest as the voice of reason then? Surgit? Smiffy? Izzy? John? Tamsin? Curt? I am already team scapegoat for Rainham club..... and scapegoats are not the voice of reason!

  9. Terrific stuff Fran, and I'm especially interested in your comments as to how you got on painting the minis. I'm a huge fan of the "Heroclix" Aliens and Predators and doubtless destined to get my hands on this game at some point. Your posting hasn't helped my willpower ;-)

    2. I'm going to get him. But you know he is such a blog whore that the more I humiliate him, the more he'll like it.

  19. Marvellous work Francis :D All very impressive, but the Predators are extra super cool!!! Cheers! :D

  20. Those aliens and predators both look intimidating as hell! The guy with his foot in the air? Not so much. But well done regardless!

  21. The alien and predator sculpts are seriously cool looking. I like the palette you chose for both of them Fran. The monochrome on the aliens really fits the bill.

    The sculpting on the Marines isn't quite as good. The poses are awkward and the basic anatomy is wrong. However, you have done a fine job of painting them up.
