Getting Ready for Texicon: More Aliens

Texicon is 21 days away.  I’m confident that I’ll be ready. (Now watch everything go wrong!) There’s only a handful of minis left to paint & half a dozen paper/cardstock buildings to assemble.

Here’s what came off of the painting table this week & a few pictures of some Foundry Street Violence Packs.  “Street Violence” is the name of Wargames Foundry’s modern/near future range. They are more expensive per figure than Foundry’s other ranges.  Where other ranges will have 8 figures to a pack, the Street Violence range only has 5 figures per pack.

I finished 5 aliens this week & my shipment from Zombiesmith arrived!  Zombiesmith makes some interesting aliens and hopefully I have some camera ready next week.  This week I have 3 from Darkson Design’s AE Bounty range, one from Infinity, and a really fun one from Mongoose’s Judge Dred range.

That does it for this week.  I hope the pictures are of help if you are wanting to start or add to a Science Fiction collection.  The Chimpanzee with a Club was an absolute joy to paint and the sculpt is full of character.

  1. Wonderful collection, some of your best painting. The chimp reflects your happiness in painting him. I’m definitely picking up several copies of”Fresh Meat” to accompany my reinforced company of Hishen.
