Yup, it has actually been out a while. If you are one of the "brick" buyers of Horror Clicks you could have gotten it back in Dec, but i don't generally buy WK stuff, so i had to wait till Jan 3 when it went on sale to anyone with a "Player ID number" which is easy to get, and you don't even need to play the games to get it. So Jan 3rd i ordered two sets, and started ripping them off the click baes. The Predator doesn't come out till Feb, but i think that one is only for brick buyers, the second AvP set with the queen, 1 Predator, and 1 Alien is in March, and should be open to anyone with an id.

GS,

So these are not going to be available in stores at all? Rats... I actually have started buying more WK stuff on the secondary market, as I have discovered that there are quite a few "Modern" and Sci-Fi like minis amongst their many lines... I have been re-basing them as well of course... They have some pretty kewl mages, undead, robots and so on as well, and if you do not use them for the games they were designed for (HQ, MK, Horror etc...), then you can save a lot of money by buying Rookies. Some of the newer stuff I've seen, especially some of their mages, have been better paints and sculpts than WotC... (I have a bunch of Orc Shaman/Witches and the like I got this way)...

Yeah i do much the same thing with the Heroclicks line, and some of the old Mage Knight, even Mech warrior for making Robots. Rookies/weak are great for that, they are generally cheaper, but the same sculpt as some of the others.

I haven't really looked at the Horror clicks yet, becucase there were only a few in the base set that i liked, however the one comming out at the end of Jan looks interesting (the Lab, and i have to say with my job i am kind of fond of it as well). So i actually put in an order for a Brick so i could get the Predator from that and rebase it and the other minis. For the most part i like this Lab set, there are a few i don't like, but lucky most of them i think are the Uniques so i hope i don't get those, and if i do E-bay here they go.

But if you want an AvP now it's easy, it may be offered later through stores because most of the others are being offered now WIZKIDS TO OFFER COLLECTOR’S SETS THROUGH RETAIL CHANNELS but not sure, it isn't listed yet but they only have stuff up till Feb listed, and all of the stuff listed there has been on sale through the "collectors advantage" for a while so it may just take time.

im a big fan of your stories and your ideas for setups. what did u use for alien walls and eggs. i just rewatched aliens by coincidence so your alien set up looks great. i look forward to future installments. i saw the rocks out front. i think my daughter has those from a toy animal set. do you have other non miniature items in your setup as well
wicked cool

Typically yes, i use lots of random things that can work, this one not so much. Just because they don't quit fit for what i had in mind. I have collected odds and ends from various places and sources, and some look very different. I have in my head kind of said products from X go with this group, and product Y go with this group. So i tried only using those things.

There are a number of hand made items (the eggs both open and closed), the tables in back, the weapons locker, and some plants (for that homey look in the rooms). the plants are Aquarium plants the pots they are in came from the craft store. And a fan from a computer, mounted on a floor tile to look like hug circulating fan.
There are some micromachines in there as well for a few of the droids. I tend to use a lot of toy bits that don't look too "toyish". But right now a bunch are being used in my D&D game. I took most of the sci-fi stuff home for just fun "little" set ups like this.

The walls however are not hand made they are old Kryomek Interiors (Resin) whihc i just luckly happened to have access too. There was a company that made them here in the US called Simtac that is actually associated with my FLGS, and they had Loads of these sitting around at vastly discounted prices, so i bought them all one day. They still have some of the eggs, but i started the set up before i could go back and get them, i may grab a few next time i am in, but forgot while i was there yesterday.

Absolutely, GS and his stories are legend in these parts... And he has a great knack for adapting odd bits and pieces to his design...

I hope to do the next part. perhaps finish on Thursday (i ordered new batteries for my camera and was cheap on the shipping so they won't be here till the 25th). So look for the next part on the 25-26th.

In the mean time i have been working on making some stuff, some sculpting etc. :)

Part III
The Landing craft pulls up and away to get out of the immediate combat zone, leaving the Jedi and Commando team in the base for the time being.


Chief, the head of the Commando team and the Jedi Master Nep confer on their courses of action. Nep and the Padawan Sam will head toward the data processing and storage area, while Commando Team Teta will head for the Reactor Core to secure it. Nep and Sam again pause for a moment looking at the curious materials covering the walls, not sure what to make of it. Nep takes a sample for analysis later at the temple archives, and presses on with the mission. Entering the main data hub.



Teta Squad moves out to the reactor core, as Pyro gets ready to pop the door.


Nep and Sam download files and look over the information and experiments the base was conducting.



The Squad breaches the door to the reactor core, and begin to secure it.



Meanwhile the Jedi are busy with the data collection, Sam stumbles across a set of files security encrypted and tries to slice the data.


The Commando, Lucky, wanders into the path of the Alien creature, not noticing it hiding in the shadows of an energy module.


As he turns away to report back that the area is secure, he is ambushed by the Alien creature.


A shoot, and a quick burst of fire from his blaster bring the other members of Teta squad running.


Just as the attack happens Master Nep feels a disturbance, and turns as both he and Sam hear the cry of Lucky.


Teta squad cautiously moves into the area, and see Lucky lying on the ground writhing in agony.


Nep tells Sam to finish gathering the data, while he checks on the status of the squad.



One of the Commandos, Gundark nicknamed that for being braver than possibly smart, reaches Lucky as he is clawing at his Kartan armor, trying to remove it. As Nep enters the core, with the worried Sam behind him, ignoring his masters request to stay behind.


Chief and Pyro reach the dying Lucky, while the Commando Gundark moves further into the dark area, seeing some movement, he encounters the creature. Nep sends a signal to the troops in the hanger that something odd is going on, so be on the alert for surprises from the Septs.


The Jedi rush in to help the poor commando Lucky, as he expires, Nep tries to heal him but can’t. As back in the dark there is the sound of blaster fire, and hand to hand combat. The sounds are horrific, Gundark is screaming in pain, and something else is as well, Sam feels nervous as he and his master feel Gundark die through the force.


Pyro advances into the now quit area, as Master Nep tries to reach out with the force to determine what is going on.
