I decided to start a diary to catalog my progress on several projects and odd jobs.
My main projects are a 15mm scifi army, inspired by all the cool 15mm armies people have been doing lately. It will be an alien force based on old scif movies, grey aliens will make up the core of it.
Another project is a 1/72 scale /20mm sci fi army, my dad and I have designed a set of rules for 1/72 ww2 gaming so have been playing this scale for a while and decided to expand into some scifi. The vehicles for this army are so far just made from a mathcbox car and some maisto cars which were $1 from a reject shop. The infantry will mainly be modern infantry.
I will probably post bits and pieces of some 28mm stuff occasionally aswell.

I will post some pics to begin with. Here is the start of my alien force, these are from 15mm.co.uk

IPB Image
Amongst the greys are some aliens that slightly resemble war of the world aliens, I have some small scale war of world machines coming soon.

And the vehicles so far for the 20mm
IPB Image
These were very blingy looking maisto hummer concepts, with the addition of some weapons and stowage
IPB Image
A matchbox swat truck
IPB Image
Some more maisto hummers with added weapon systems and fuel tanks.

I will updating this fairly regularly.

Any comments and criticism welcomed.

Cheers

Awesome looking stuff so far mate. I'll be keeping an eye on here to see what you progress with...very interesting!!!

The die cast vehicles are very cool too. Here's a link of a guy from Melbourne who posts on another forum who has done some very cool die cast conversions...you may find it interesting and get some ideas for your die cast conversions...

Those conversions are quite insane, i don't have very good plasticcard skills.

I have painted two 5 man squads of grey aliens and painted two of the martians.
Squad 1

Squad 2

And the martians

Haven't got any specific rules yet, Gruntz looks pretty cool, so might look into that.

Got some work done on my aliens, I think the army is going to be named the Coalition of Alien Nations, or C.A.N for short, here is a shot of how they are coming along.

That's just too awesome mate....great Sci Fi force!!!

The Gruntz rule system is pretty cool and allows you to use any models and construct your own stats for whatever mini's you have...

I have done a little bit of painting recently but have also purchased the Gruntz rules and had a game with a mate. I used my dads fedreal marine army and my mate used my alien force, it was a pretty close game going back and fourth a bit until the aliens finally overwhelmed the marines.
Here are some shots of the game. Pics are a little dark.

Awesome stuff, thanks for sharing. I really love that alien force you have created!!!

Did you have fun creating the stat cards for your units? Were you able to create the units well to your personal tastes?

What were your thoughts on the Gruntz rules?

Loved making the stat cards, main reason why i got gruntz. The units were pretty close to what i wanted them to be, I might need to change them a little bit, I think I made some too tough for what they look like.
Rules system is nice and easy, neither of us had played it before and picked it up pretty quick, was lots of fun.
