Following up on my post from yesterday, I finished the first batch of alien mercenaries. Great miniatures, loads of character and really fun to paint - can't recommend them enough.
My paintjob was really simple as you can see, but will be ok on the tabletop.
Here they are again with a little friend and a test model UNSC (the space trooper) - with a green rifle! For the final UNSC colour scheme I am going to make the grey a little lighter and maybe change from white stripes to spots or blotches.
I have tried some different colour schemes for the UNSC today, but the red and white dude was staring at me from across the table .. and all I can say is that maybe it's an acquired taste.
In other news, I have ordered a copy of Tomorrow's War.
