I thought about buying some republic/stormtroopers and painting them. But I want something like space-hulk or Aliens space marines.

I am looking for about ten 25/28mm space marines. I favor plastic, but metal is okay. I rather paint them myself but pre-painted is again also okay. Which miniature maker and model do you recommend.

Hi -

For Pre-Painted Plastic (PPP), take a look at any of the UNA Trooper Types from the AT-43 Game. They have basic troops to terminator armour type and, until Feb 23rd, Fantasy Flight Games is having a HUGE stock clearout sale (up to 75% off). The RED BLOK also have some great militia types but their terminator suits are more like mini walkers than personal armor.

For unpainted plastic, take a look at GWs Cadians. You could also combine parts of their Catachans kits to have the obligatory "tough guy" without sleeves in your unit.

Cool I like those AT-43 troopers. Do you know if the Steel, Death, Jampack "TacArms" type minis have a
medium(>1") base or large (>2") sized?

The TacArms are on a "large" 1-1/2 inch diam. base. The basic troops are on the smaller 1" base.

To be really exact the bases are 30 and 40 mm in diameter, which is slightly larger than 1 and 1.5 inches.
