, nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.


That's pretty much a dead on quote from Aliens


EDIT
Darn , while i was attempting to see if both Hicks and Ripley said it (becuase i think She suggests it, then Hicks backs her up right before evac), YC beat me to it...

Anyone tried the game yet? Any good? Or should I get the bugs for Tyranid variety instead?

You know, when I saw Aliens I realised afterwards that they had used the same script once more - they just upped the numbers and changed it from a claustrophobic horror movie to an equally claustrophobic war story! Kind of neat!

Also, any of you recall a fifties movie about a spaceship returning from Mars, also with an unwelcome passenger? Alien is the same exact story, only with a better storyline, a bigger budget, and way better special effects! I don't remember the title, and I saw it when it was shown as the late, late movie one night when I visited my aunt in New York way back in 1976! It had all of the ingredients of Alien - a rarely seen creature that ate the crew, and the ship was finally saved when a crewmember managed to open a hatch from the outside, blowing the creature into space. I'm far from a scientist, but even at 20 I didn't think handgrenades would be a good remedy against a monster in the airducts on a spaceship! And why did they bring handgrenades to Mars in the first place!?

I picked it up about 5 times and put it back this weekend... but there are boosters? is that right?

Liked the first movie, couldn't stand the second. Didn't seem to even mesh together at all. Wish they would do another one with the surviving characters from the first movie. Didn't put 2and2 together on the miniatures though. Thought they were wierd scorpions!

That's what i thought too, some sort of Chernetidea (Pseudoscorpions ) or Pedipalpi (Whip scorpion) , or maybe even Solpugae (Wind Scorpions or Barrel Spiders) and he ment to say 4 pairs of legs instead of 4 legs (or maybe some sort of Hemiptera, sub order Heteroptera, family Reduviidae, Asssian Bugs, there were some other than the number of legs that actually have most of the colors... I just thought he had missed the other pair the front legs couls have been, almost under the body...

Wow you painted up all 26 of these.....I think that would take me about a year. When you said boosters I thought pre painted. These are plastic right? So I guess they are durable too. Nice job. I liked ST and remember reading the book twice in my teen years.....I was disapointed they did not include the suits or the Skinnies. Maybe another movie. Have you seen hero of the Federation?

Heck no dude. Only the 6 in the pictures so far. The rest are being assembled right now. I am hoping to have all 26 finished by theis Friday (3 more days for me).

When you said boosters I thought pre painted. These are plastic right? So I guess they are durable too. Nice job.

Yep the minis are plastic, and they do need to be constructed first. Vey 'GW'esque' in their feel, but the different poosing possibilities for the bugs alone are phenominal. Oh and cheap as.... A booster of 6 Warrior Bugs is the same price as a pack of Tyranids. (Difference being.. a pack of Tyranids is only 3 models, where as the Warrior Bugs you get 6).

Thanks dude. I am hoping to take some better pics and have them posted within the next few hours. I will add them to this thread, instead of making another.

I liked ST and remember reading the book twice in my teen years.....I was disapointed they did not include the suits or the Skinnies. Maybe another movie. Have you seen hero of the Federation?

I have never read the book, or seen the cg/animation episodes, just the two movies. (Original rocked!, second... **need bucket, gonna throw up**). The minis game does however have Skinnies, the larger bugs (coming out soon), M8's and M9's, and other items coming out in the future.

It looks like one could go crazy with diff paint themes for the bugs. Hey hey hey,,, I liked the second movie. I have to laugh though I thought you were saying "need Budget" at first ...LOL.. The Hero of the Federation did need that.

Heya Whitewind;

ROFL.. "Budget".... Too Funny! As far as fitting into the passages... they could, it would depend on the leg placement of the bug during construction (of the minis that is).

Well here are the 'better' pics of the bugs....

Great, the 1st photos don't do them justice. I love the drybrushing you did. Does the game specify a color scheme or did you just go for it?

I just went for it...

Played the First Movie DVD on my computer and paused when a good shot of a Bug appeared. (Not easy to do, as every pause, well 9-10, was all blurry. Those of the bugs that is.

Being 'anal' when it comes to 'doing right by the movie' I wanted my first batch of bugs to be straight from the film.

My next squad (5 bugs) will be more Mantis-like.

Black with Green drybrushing, and the 'blades' of the legs will be a bright green, as will the markings on the jaws. The patch on the backs will be a darkish green and drybrushed with the same bright green that I do the leg blades. They will be my... Mantis Squad. (Duh!).. hehe.
