Colonial Marines

(Click on the photo to embiggen)

I haven't been blogging as much lately, no major reason for this. It's just been nice weather, and I have been doing other things. But I'm still doing a bit of painting on several different projects. Today, I just wanted to show off my slowly advancing 'Dropship Down' project. These are my colonial marine forces, and my junk-made terrain. Basically, from this point, I just want to add a bit more of everything. More terrain, more troops, more vehicles. There is something refreshingly simple about the project. I enjoy the way I haven't tied it to any ruleset or even specifically to any line of miniatures - though I admit I really am enjoying the Stargrave plastics, especially the Mercenaries box! 


  1. A nice Stargate looks well in any scenario. Just suggesting.

  2. Very nice. I always wanted to play an expanded universe of "Aliens". Colonial Marines, knowing their up against a serious threat, dealing with infestations on ships, colonies, etc. Your marines got that picture I've always had.

    1. That's what I'm going for! It's also what the Deathship One rules grew out of.

  3. The Ridge Runner scales really well with those Star Grave minis.

  4. nice work!!!
