With this serious injustice to my meager miniature stockpile, I have searched for ways to inexpensively augment my horde. One option I discovered was the starter boxes for Deadzone from Mantic Games.
I picked up three starters; Forge Fathers (Dwarves in Space!), Veer-myn (Ratmen in Space!), and Marauders (Orcs in Space!).
|Here are the grunts of the Forge Fathers. I made a sergeant stand on an orc head while holding a maul and one-handing the rifle.|
|I made one of each special/heavy weapon and one hussar. Then there are the Brokkrs, which would make great space pirates or miners or engineers or scouts.|
|The Veer-myn, space rats. I made one of each type of rat ogre then the two progenitors/leaders. The giant drilling machine is a cobbled together contraption from random bits, I love constructing stuff out of leftovers.|
|The swarm of Veer-myn. Up front are the 12 pistol/knife wielders, then three heavy weapons, and in the back are the rats from the Project Pandora boardgame.|
Now I just need to paint....alot.
