They said the "Infant Warriors" are the Alien design and we've seen their Infant Warriors models. They're AvP.

The Alien models so far look really half-assed and the so called "Infant Warriors" look like absolute crap, esoecially compare to the Marine and Predator models. The "Stalker" torsos, tails and heads are fine, but the legs and arms are atrocious.

Makes me sad.

I dunno, I think their Alien models look pretty slick so far, I'm looking forward to seeing what else they come up with.

I do agree that I'd rather see WY as a faction over "Stickman", but part of that is apprehension of what they'll do by creating the Stickman faction from whole cloth. They're going to be creating an entire (theoretically, fully formed and balanced) faction based on 1 creature that got 3 minutes of screen time.
I mean I kinda get why they'd roll WY in with Humans/Marines, because I imagine they wouldn't play that differently. But there's ways to make them play differently and give them special rules and equipment, similar to how Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines play differently in 40k despite technically being the same thing.

The whole Stickman faction thing reminds me of when the Starship Troopers miniatures game introduced the Skinnies as a playable faction, and the creators basically had to make up the faction from scratch because the source material (TV series and Heinlein book) didn't say a whole lot other than "they exist".

The quality of the sculpts for the Aliens is really good. I'm impressed with how much detail they've got.

But the designs ain't what they say they are.

I'm sure the stickman figures will sell really well.

Btw... the redesigned Predalien actually looks worse than Chet.. with even bigger dreadlocks. lol. Way to mess something up even further.

Mongoose had permission from Heinlein's estate to make what ever new races they wanted as long as they approved them, the skinnie hargemeny  was created from Heinlein's own notes.

They also made 2 other races as well.One that was finished, The Forth, and one that was in the prototype stages, The Coven.

(was a bad SST miniatures fan back in the day)

What, this little guy? He's adorable! Wouldn't hurt a fly.

Been unlocked for a while I think. I'm interested to see who they put inside the Power Loader. My bet is a marine, since they've been iffy about civilians in general so far, not just named characters. Really hope we get to the free Praetorian stretch goal though, that thing rocks, and it'd free up money for more rank'n'file.

Who doesn't love the Son of Godzilla?

Also, yeah me too. I'm trying to sell some crap on eBay to allow me to throw money towards the pledge. I'd very much like a free Praetorian!!!

It shouldn't be that hard - you'd just need enough miniatures to represent the chess pieces (you can decide which miniatures represent what) and then get a chess board.

I mean if you wanted to get all fancy you could try and make a custom chess board, or mount the miniatures on special bases (or even wooden bases, if you could find some - a craft store might have something suitable).

Q
So is this like Axis and Allies? When you have miniatures with cards and you use them as your own team against someone else on a map?

I collected Axis and Allies (started up a Canadian Army in fact) and Star Wars for a while, but later realized it's better when other people play the stuff too, and eventually lost interest.
