Prodos Announces Last Expansions as AvP The Hunt Begins Is Discontinued

I’m devastated to be reporting that Prodos Games has announced that as of the 30th of April their Alien vs. Predator miniatures are being discontinued, and they are no longer able to sell any more miniatures.

Before the last facehugger has jumped and the last plasma caster is fired, Prodos are releasing two final expansions: Machiko Noguchi (in two editions!) and the Alien Egg Cluster!

Machiko Noguchi is one of the most recognizable characters from AvP universe. We have introduced her in wargaming expansion of AvP, but she has never received proper ruleset until “Hot Landing Zone” was released. Now the actual miniature is designed and ready to play!

Serving the hive’s need to grow, Queens lay eggs in well-guarded rooms within the hive. The eggs, sensing potential hosts hatch and Facehuggers start amassing to perform their sole function. These Egg Clusters are always a high priority target for the USCM.

 Prodos Announces Last Expansions as AvP The Hunt Begins Is Discontinued

In addition to the two new units, Prodos is also offering a “Collector’s Pick” Bundle Vol.2 that includes most of the recently promotional miniatures. A buddle of earlier promo’s is also available on their webstore.

Prodos are currently offering running a clearance sale on their Alien vs. Predator miniatures with 40% off discounts so if you’re missing out on any expansions, now is the time to pick them up! Machiko and the Egg Cluster are expected to ship on the 12th of April.

  1. WY-0311
    I actually won that AVP give-away with the 3 special predators and female Marine. (Thank you Hicks and Prodos!). Those were my first AVP miniatures and they are fantastic.

    Unfortunately I didn't catch on about the discontinuation until I had already ordered a bunch of toys for my other hobbies so I had to work with very limited funds, hence I came up with the narrative of WY Commando's fighting Aliens in some god forsaken facility.

    I settled with:
    - AVP Weyland Yutani Commandos UniCast
    - AVP Alien Warriors UniCast
    - USCM Sentry Guns
    - Alien Evolved Warriors UniCast

    I'll come up with my own hybrid rules mixed with space hulk to create my own small miniatures game with this lot  ;D

    ***Does anyone know if the UniCast Commando's are the same scale as the first series Commando's? or do they suffer the same issue that the Marines have with the 2nd edition unicast Marines?
  2. [cancerblack]
    Currently at 83 Aliens painted for the boardgame. That's the lot, except for a multipart Royal Guard which I'll mount on a Marine Hero "squashed pred" base and paint to match the Evolved Warriors so it can pull Praetorian/Number 6 Evolution double duty. When my big order arrives.
  3. [cancerblack]
    Good call, I did dark blue-ish greys and a more intense blue to distinguish mine, really I'd rather they were matching but casuals need to be able to tell models apart on the table and with the clone-y poses of unicast, it was just easier to go full on blue for warriors.
  4. [cancerblack]
    Feel free to ask if you're ever feeling flush with disposable.

    How are you thinking of painting the Aliens? I have pics for an ultra-basic tutorial on them but I've not strung it together or written the text yet.
    Probably a basic black-with-whatever highlights for most of them, something bronzy for the stalkers.

    Fingers crossed. SiL's first parcel heading out gives me hope they're tackling Asia Pacific presently.
    First parcel sent, third order made tho :laugh:

    Oh christ, it's all topsy turvy then.


    Going metallic on the infants/warriors or?

    Also, we might be doing a giveaway of some kind over at AvP Wargamer on Facebook, we're nearly at 2k members so if you're not already, sign up for great content and a great community and (possibly) free stuff!

    Just got an email from Prodos saying order processing has been pushed back two weeks.

    Four melded posts in a row! I've been working on an Alien Trilogy inspired set of missions, but lack the means to make even an vaguely decent looking set of maps/legends. If anyone with the skills would like to step in...
  7. SiL
    I'm spoiling to see you paint them. Your stuff's great. I'm half tempted to ask how much it would cost to paint my shit but I know I couldn't afford the postage, handling, and time at the moment  :laugh:

    Once I get all my Aliens I'm going to start with them, since they're 1) the easiest and 2) the most numerous, so plenty of practice.
  8. SiL
    Finally got a confirmation one of my four orders is being shipped!

    ... it's the third order I made. I really hope the first two aren't going to get forgotten :laugh:
  9. Corporal Hicks
    So is my first order!  ;D I'd gone for -

    AVP Alien Crusher   
    AVP Predalien Unicast Edition   
    Alien Praetorian UniCast   
    Machiko Noguchi   
    Alien Egg Cluster   
    AVP Alien Royal Guard   
    Alien Evolved Warriors UniCast   
    AVP Marine Powerloader   

    I think when I get paid again at the end of the month I'm gonna get some original Pred Hounds, some Sentry Guns and the original PredAlien and I think call it quits there. I'm tempted to get another copy of Hot Landing Zone for the Spitters but I'm not sure.
  10. SiL
    I ended up caving and got a final order (I REALLY should have waited and done all three batches together, cos I ended up spending f**king 45 pound on shipping alone) with:

    Unicast Praetorian
    Powerloader
    Evolved Warriors
    Elite Predators (which I apparently drunkenly ordered in the German edition, so I'll need to print the right cards :D)
  11. [cancerblack]
    Thanks. I'm getting hyped to do the predators for the boardgame once my last order arrives. I might have to do an Elite or two to test my colours before the bulk arrive. Still have to find bases for the starter set guys and any non unicast conversions though...

    I won't go into wargear details, but my boardgame preds are/will be:

    Berserker clan:
    - Elder Berserker
    - Tracker x2
    - Berserker x2
    - Hellhound x3


    Warrior clan:
    - Warrior Elder
    - Warrior x4
    - Elite x1


    Hunter clan:
    - Hunter Elder
    - Hunter x3
    - Elite x2



    Not techincally legal lists, but they're there for hyperspecialised missions, and provide a pool of 400pts give or take, for each type of Predator to select from for normal/mixed lists.

    My boardgame Aliens (all finished except for the hq praetorian):


    - queen
    - praetorian
    - evolved warrior (2)
    - #6
    - predalien (2)
    - infant warriors (22)
    - alien warriors (12)
    - stalkers (12)
    - spitters (5)
    - facehuggers (10)
    - royal guard (2)
    - eggs (5)


    The weird numbers are from painting a handful of extra infants, warriors, stalkers and an extra predalien, in case of spawning said models in a game where all the default numbers are still on the table. An unlikely occurance but it feels good to have the spares just in case.
  12. [cancerblack]
    Oh, I've seen those before and totally forgot them. Joseph does some great stuff, I pinched (and darkened a bit) one of his colour schemes for my Evolved Warriors.

    My take on a domeless open skull:

    GW gloss looks great and goes on well in 1-2 coats, but i've had trouble with both dust and transport foam bonding into it in high temperatures. The Army Painter gloss is just as good but without any issues.

    Also, which fb group did you see that on?
  14. SiL
    That glossed domed Stalker is gorgeous. I actually saw someone on Facebook who'd managed to get it to look like the skull under the dome on their Infant Warriors, I'll try that (same technique, I'm guessing, just painted to look like there's light catching the brow highlights).

    Do you have a gloss you recommend?
  15. [cancerblack]
    I've had a few goes at different translucent heads, here's a sample.


    Boardgame Infants, using a combination of painted stripes and washes of thinned black:

    https://i.imgur.com/WI9KVXk.jpg




    Much more subtle under daylight, without the camera flash:


    https://i.imgur.com/3Oq0908.jpg







    The Kenner Panther, which is more Fuegan Orange over a pale orange base/white undercoat:

    https://i.imgur.com/IOlcmtr.jpg






    And a one off Stalker using manual layering/blending techniques. Mostly various browns and brown/black washes:

    Prior to the gloss finish:

    Thanks guys!

    That's great, especially the advice for the bronze. I'll find some reference photos, but I love how those black Aliens came out above. I've also seen some people get a transparent dome effect going that I'd love to try.
  17. [cancerblack]
    I lied, my body was not ready.

    EDIT

    Any advice for Games workshop paints for Aliens? I've got a starter kit from a Warhammer box I bought a while ago, and I can get some individuals. Want to get the Aliens done at least -- base coating in Chaos Black, then thinking blue/silver for the Infant Warriors and brown/bronze from the Stalkers.


    Tons of advice actually. If you can find a few screencaps from games or movies closest to what you have in mind that'd be easiest, but either way we can develop a good scheme.

    My preferred method for bronze/copper colours right now is to start with a bright silver, and give it washes of GW Fuegan Orange til it's sufficiently rich, then add black wash to bring it down a few notches. You can also do a drybrush of silver halfway through on detailed objects so it's a bit more defined. A good example is the pipes on my Marines - you can add more layers of orange or black wash to make it richer or darker:

    https://i.imgur.com/3aCE0qj.jpg





    This Alien was painted with just silver/orange wash, without the black stage. I think you'd definitely want to keep the black since this is intentionally cartoonishly bright to emulate the Alien Trilogy dog-strain palette, but it shows what you can do with one paint and one wash done in alternating layers a few times:

    https://i.imgur.com/PJQ5orI.jpg

    Also here's some of my first batch of Aliens, done in metallics. I went pretty fiddly with lots of layers but it would be easy to simplify the method a bit and add some blue in there.

    The really important thing when painting Aliens is to have clear ideas of the differences between similar techniques, most importantly of all, the difference between an overbrush and a drybrush, and between a wash and a glaze.

    I've got the hive one. It does a good enough job but i wouldn't want to use one for anything that's supposed to have straight lines or level surfaces. Also i had a terrible time dealing with the company, not in a hurry to do business with them again unfortunately.

    Ah how it would work with the crisp edges of the mesh one was a concern i had. Well, I will try anyway.



    Damn quite jelly that I could not stock up like you guys.Talk about unfortunate timing
  21. SiL
    I got her because she doubles as an extra unit for both marines and Predators :D

    I decided to save money by not buying any Predators because they're all unique and use the same size basis, so it's easy enough to just use the ones from the core set and HLZ as stand-ins for any other kind of Predator. If only I could've done the same with the Aliens!
  22. [cancerblack]
    My body is ready.

    I ended up picking up

    Unicast Queen
    Unicast WY Commandos
    Machiko Noguchi
    Unicast Predator Hellhounds
    Sentry guns x 2
    Marine Officer
    Alien Warriors x 2
    Alien eggs
    Alien facehuggers
    PredAlien

    That's still a pretty great haul honestly. I was tempted by machiko coz of the 2-for-1 but tbh, i don't want any named characters in my stuff until they earn nicknames in combat like true (toy) soldiers.

    Except for Specimen 6, which i'm thinking of as a generic turbo warrior rather than the game character.
