Prodos 28mm Aliens Colonial APC and 15mm Crabby Aliens.......

.....the Majoidea!

My mate from England (no not Ray) asked me to paint a few things, one of those things was this 28mm Aliens Colonial Marine APC from Prodos Games, my mate said it was a bastard to put together, mold lines, parts not fitting together etc....

..........and don't get me started on the transaxle!!!!!!!

He supplied the paint and the chaos began.......

The crab like aliens are from Khurasan and the name actually came from an actual crab species I liked the name of......but also known as the Crabby 8!

These were part of a submission to the ongoing challenge but still currently behind Ray"Budgie Smuggler" Rousell!

  1. I've always known the aliens would colonize Earth either through you or Ray....

  2. Ease back, Ripley. You're only grinding metal.
    Nice job, Fran!

    1. "You've blown the transaxle!" odd words for what's obviously an electric drive vehicle... But as always rule of cool prevails and it's a cool line ;)

      Great work here. Just looking at that finished interior is so evocative: Gorman sliding back and forth looking at his monitors, Hicks shotgunning xenos at the hatch...

  5. Very nice work on all of these, but yes, that APC is quite amazing - particularly the interior work and crew.

    1. Great detail but poor sculpting with two pieces of connection!

  6. Marvellous work, Fran, with the APC looking particularly formidable. I clearly need to give "Khurasan" a look as those Crabbies look enticing too.

  7. Awesome job on the APC, Francis! You can really imagine Lieutenant Gorman in front of those screens taking the wrong decisions. :D

  12. Great!! Unfortunately I missed out on the 1/72nd Version of the APC and dropship
    "I'm ready, man. Check it out! I am the ultimate badass! State of the badass art! You do not want to f**k with me. Check it out! Hey, Ripley, don't worry. Me and my squad of ultimate badasses will protect you! Check it out. Independently targeting particle-beam phalanx. WHAP! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase plasma pulse rifles, RPGs. We got sonic, electronic ball-breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks..." One of my favourite films ..I must have watched it 20 times plus.

  13. That APC looks so great can largely ignore the bloody awful ground clearance! Nice piece of work on it and the crabs (great colours).

    Love the crab warriors too, shame shipping from the US has become so expensive.
