The last week has been spent working on a variety of Pound Store Plastic Warrior paint projects including my Poundland Space Marines, adding another twenty Space Marine figures and a Command and Comms team.
Apart from the varnish and a mild black wash over the darker faced Space Marines, they are pretty much done and ready for action. All I need to do is create some opposition troopers.
The Command and Comms Radio team came from a batch of a dozen bags of party bag filler Soldier copies of Matchbox figures that I bought last year or came free with some garage forecourt shop cheap vehicle kits.
The least impressive of the figures is the Poundland penny dreadful figure with the machine pistol / space blaster. I have some ideas on adding a shiny drawing pin riot or deflector shields to space-ify these up a bit.
As possible allies or opposition, I have started work on some Flash Gordon / Star Wars rebel inspired bronze, gold and orange figures. Some Rebellious type troopers and Imperious SturmandDrangTroopers (in black and white) might also follow.
I like the bronze gold steampunk of the laser rifle and space blaster.
For space rules, I can downsize the Close Little Star Wars rules from last year’s Planet Yarden garden game.
