    I was actually. Wasn't sure whether to put it in the Merch section or the Game section.

    I'd very much like a nice black with blues look to them. I was thinking going brown with the Runners though and maybe a silver/milk colour for the cowl of the infants.
  2. [CANCERBLACK]
    The purple sheen?


    Yeah. It seems to blur into blue and then black very smoothly. I'm wondering whether the painter used a forced effect and painted those colours onto different angles, or if they used a special paint to get that "petroleum on top of a puddle", harlequin look.

    I have no idea how I'm gonna paint these. They're so different to the spaceship models I've painted.


    Not sure what you're after with them, but I have a lot of experience painting this style and size of figure, and would be more than happy to offer tips and advice. I know a few other members here are pretty talented TTG hobbyists too.

    Were you still thinking of making a sub-forum for this game upon release? I reckon it'd be a good place to share our work and help each other with concepts and techniques.
  3. [CANCERBLACK]
    Photography doesn't show off what appears to a be a harlequin effect on the carapace to the extent one might desire, but it's so nice to see the swarm painted anyway. Thanks for posting them here Hicks, I couldn't see them properly on facebook due to my phone being stubborn right now.

    These were posted by Titan Games, the place they did the preview at the weekend. I do believe they're pretty tight with Prodos and I do hope they run some events, they're pretty close to me.

    Remember with enough support, anything is possible. If this game launches strongly and Prodos can make enough money, they might be able to pitch to FOX that the fans want more... Giger's Big Chap, City Hunter, Lost Tribe, larger vehicle models like an APC/Dropship... whatever the desire is, all they need is the revenue and the input from the fans and they can pitch it to FOX and hopefully get approval.

    Money talks, so get all your friends into AvP or models to pick up this game when it goes on sale.

    We just need another hit "Alien" movie with well designed Xenomorphs, and it's been what... Ten years since AVP?
    I think for one the AVP design will only be sticking around until there's either Xenomorphs in Paradise or as I said another standalone "Alien" film.

    I'd say in their simplicity the AVP Aliens would simply cost less to make and be easier to sculpt also.

    Well at least we aren't getting the mummy faced aliens from AVP 2010.
  7. [CANCERBLACK]
    Well you're right on that front, especially as we only got recycled ADIliens in AvP as a cost-saver. Having said that though, I think that iteration of the Alien is going to be official for quite some time. While I love the original creature and its' design, I think he's more or less "retired" now (barring Isolation).

    At least the Warriors are more Cameron than they are AvP:R... although they're still pretty AvP:R. Just a lot nicer than I was expecting. There were 100% Cameron versions floating around as concept renders (which would have only needed a minor bit of work to make into a Giger Alien), but presumably Fox didn't like them that way.

    On Saturday the 3rd of May Prodos Games was celebrating the release of their new Mutant Chronicles Warzone models with Titan Games and they also brought their finalized models from the upcoming Aliens vs Predator The Miniatures Game:

    The Queen and the Power-Loader square up. - Aliens vs Predator The Miniatures Game Previews

    The Queen and the Power-Loader square up.

    Gmorts Chaotica and Farsight Blogger were on hand to get us our best pictures of the final models from Prodos Games’ first wave for the game. A recent post of Prodos Games’ Facebook reveals that the game will soon be available for pre-order. Hopefully this means those of us who pledged to the Kickstarter will recieve our models soon.

    Oh, I'm liking these:

    Oh just saw this on FB! I really want lots of Chets (predaliens) and the dome headed aliens :3

    Glad they went with plastic for the figures. More durable then diecast and and the paint doesn't rub and chip off as easily. Plus the figures can easily be reformed or corrected using hot water.
  11. [CANCERBLACK]

    Why wouldn't they?

    They already described their AvP style drone as Gigers Alien in one of the interviews. That model may well have been aproved by Fox under that description.
    Given everything to come out of the franchise lately has had digitigrade legs and no back horn, I strongly suspect that the official Fox standpoint is now that the AvP [movie] designs are official and the former arangement was purely a tec limitation.
    Finally, in miniature form (its only a little taller than 28mm) the Giger alien would not be significantly different from the 'infant warrior' other than the tail, horn and lower legs, and as such might not be deemed cost effective to produce. You could always custom it.

    Edit: In review I actually just realised that many of the minis (as opposed to the concept art) for the most part have plantigrade legs in dynamic posing, which is nice.


    Thanks for answering that one Arterial Spray. For the reason you point out, I doubt we'll see a Giger Alien, although I've been thinking about making one based around the Warrior figure with a head-swap.
  12. Arterial Spray
    They haven't won me over t'ill I see Giger's Alien.

    But everything looks pretty fantastic otherwise.


    I think I'll just pretend the AVP Aliens are A:R Clones as are any eventual AVP:R designed Warriors can be the Warrior-Clone equivalent.

    Not to be a downer, but I really don't think they're gunna make the Giger version at all.

    In short, we don't really know yet. Thing is, it isn't just a board game. It's essentially a starter set for all three species for a big wargame.

    I just really hope we get good tournament support for it!!
  15. Corporal Hicks
    I like the looks of Dutch and his buddy (can't remember her name). The Predator tokens look pretty sweet too. And I'm also liking the looks of the mercs - even I wish they'd have been full-on A3 dog-handlers.

    There's a bunch more on here: http://deartonyblair.blogspot.co.uk/ Nothing with amazing quality unfortunately.  :-\

    The stand-out stall for me, however, was Prodos Games - developers of the new Aliens vs Predator board game and war-game. I chatted with some of the team, and they were really open in terms of talking about the new game. There were several finished sculpts available for inspection.

    Prodos were also showcasing some updated token sets and the board tiles. They explained that these had been redone, as they were unhappy with the originals. The examples at the show were really amazing; very detailed, very colourful. It's great to see a company listening to customers, and acting on criticism or advice. Overall, I'm really looking forward to the release of this game and feel confident it is in safe hands!

    Another few pictures in here. I'll keep looking for more.

    And thanks.  :) Very proud of it. And of my Month 6 win. I was flying with something that was completely scary to use but managed to pull out the full win.
