  1. I don't know that much about 3D printing yet, so here is the product page so you can check for yourself https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-progenitors-fleet-188136
  2. I built a decent amount of ships for Full Thrust back in 2000, all made of bits and shields from Gundam models of various scales. I think I might also still have some of the old original Eldar ships, and some unbuilt Babylon 5 ships that I got on clearance. And being an anime nerd, I definitely have most of the small Space Battleship Yamato ships released for the remake of the series (and a few of the older ones too). Plus, my buddy who is into 3D printing showed me some cool ship designs by One Page Rules. So I am fully stocked if I decide to get back into starship warfare. But I will need to repair a few of those flight stands...
  3. As long as we are sharing, here are the minis I have been prepping for my cabals. I'm not locked down to one in particular, but I'm definitely doing a cabal of Judges. So here are all of my spectral/ghostly/wraith-like minis. A mixture of Reaper Bones, D&D, Dreamblade and HorrorClix. Here are my demons with wings (not that all of them will fly...). Mostly Reaper Bones with a rockin' World of Warcraft mini. These are all my "warrior" demon types, along with my beastmen/baphomites? Again, Reaper Bones, World of Warcraft and Dreamblade miniatures. And finally, a mix of stuff that will just fill out various roles in my cabals. Reaper Bones, Mage Knight, HorrorClix, Dreamblade and D&D miniatures. On all of the bases, I used a baking soda technique I found on YouTube to fill out the area of the base with a little texture, and also to blend the surface of the base to the integral base of minis that have one.
  4. I just recently finished removing the flash and basing all the miniatures I plan to use for this. Even bought multiple sets of discount d12 on eBay. Nothing is primed yet. Also having a little resistance from my gaming group. Not because of the content, but because they aren't interested in "competetive" gaming. None of them want to play games pitting player vs player. None of them are wargamers, most are role-players and a few board gamers (but only co-operative stuff like Zombicide). I might have to start looking for a few different people to play against (I'm going to have this problem with Stargrave too...). As for your BGM playlist, check out the DOOM 2016 soundtrack by Mick Gordon. Listening to it for too long may just drive you insane.
  5. Okay, so I'm a little late to the game (literally), but I've started working on getting together the miniatures to use for the Random Encounters in Stargrave. I've looked through my collection and around the net, and found some decent suggestions, so I wanted to start a topic here to share my ideas and to see what other members of the forum are using for their bestiary. I'm only going to focus on the creatures and monsters portion of the bestiary, and I am trying to match the description and/or the function of the creature. Things like ruffians, pirates and bounty hunters could just be unused crew type miniatures, so they won't be part of this topic. Also, while I've seen a lot of cool 3D printed stuff out there, I'm going to try and keep my list to traditionally produced miniatures (also because I don't have access to a 3D printer just yet), But If I find something particularly cool or appropriate as an STL, I will include it in the list. Since I prefer to work in plastic, I may be missing some very good miniatures from the Reaper library that are only available in metal. Please forgive my lack of knowledge on this. All of the photos posted here belong to their creators. They are only posted here for reference purposes. Portions of text from Stargrave are provided only to aid in the search for appropriate miniatures. Game mechanic details are not provided. I will update my original post if I make changes or find something else to fill a certain role (to keep the post count low). If you suggest something, please provide a source (for 3D printed stuff, the creator and the model name should suffice). On to the Bestiary... BILEWORM (Reaper Giant Leeches) These are perfect based on the description. DEDFURD (Reaper Giant Frogs) (Froud creature STL by DuncanShadow) There are a lot of giant frog minis out there, but the pair of Reaper Giant Frogs are some of my favorites. For something with a more exotic feel, this Froud creature STL by DuncanShadow (found on thingiverse) is pretty cool as well. DRONE I'm just going to use a GW Tau drone for these. You could also use the Reaper "Death Marble". FERROX (Reaper Winter Wolf) For this beast, I feel like any sort of wolf or dire wolf with its hackles up fits the part better than a traditional sleek-furred wolf. (Heroscape Marrden Nagrub) For a more exotic type of alien hunting pack animal, I found some old Heroscape Marrden Nagrubs in storage. If you can't get the miniatures, lyte3d has some posted over on thingiverse. GAUNCH [The Gaunch are a race of human-sized scavengers, with giant bulging eyes, that hide in the shadows seeking out the remains from the carnage of the Last War. They generally wear little-to-no clothing, as the pigments in their silky skin are constantly changing to match their environment, making them nearly impossible to spot at any kind of distance. While they prefer to scavenge the remains of those fallen in battle, they will come out of hiding for fresh meat when the opportunity presents itself.] I haven't found anything I particularly like for these yet. They seem like ghouls or ghasts based on the description. (Zombicide Invader Worker Xenos) I recently revisited my Zombicide Invader boardgame, and the Worker Xenos might be a good fit for these. You might be able to pick up some loose ones on eBay. HORAT (Reaper Nhoolyan Reven Hunting Beast) (Star Wars miniatures Reek) While the Nhoolyan Reven Hunting Beast fits the description quite well, I already have a Reek in my collection (and it fits the overall function of the creature). There are also some woolly rhinoceros toys out there that seem like they might be the appropriate size. MAGMITE [This family of highly diverse crustaceans live in the most extreme of volcanic environments. While they are poorly understood, they seem to derive most of their necessary energy from heat. That said, they do need to ingest organic matter in order to grow, and thus will usually attack any other living creature on sight. Standing about three feet tall, with a varied number of legs, claws, tails, and other appendages, magmites are covered in thick armoured plates that keep them completely protected from lava and most other sources of heat. Since these creatures are often encountered crawling out of fresh lava, they usually drip and spatter molten rock, which can be just as dangerous as their claws or mouths.] I'm having a little trouble deciding with this one. Reaper has the Dire Crab, the Tidal Lurker, and even a Crab Man. There's also the D&D Chuul. However, these last few are not exatctly small or medium critters like in the description. If you ignore the "crustacean" descriptor, the Boulderkin from the Bones 5 kickstarter (apparently not in the Reaper store yet) painted in a magma theme would probably look pretty good. (Bearmit Crab by monsterprint) I just found this Bearmit Crab by monsterprint over on thingiverse. If you scale it so the base is only one inch across, I think we might have an appropriate size critter. MINDGRIPPER [These parasitic monstrosities are only slightly bigger than a large rat and resemble a manta ray with little spider legs. When encountered, these creatures attempt to leap onto the back of their prey’s head and pierce their skull with their barbed tongue. If this is accomplished, the creature is able to feed off the victim’s brainwaves and actually control them for a limited time.] (Reaper Dungeon Vermin - Tick) (Reaper Dungeon Vermin - Centipede) These little mind controlling critters could be almost anything, but the Reaper Dungeon Vermin Tick seems like a decent proxy. I also like the idea of using the Reaper Dungeon Vermin Centipede because I can imagine it as one of the Goa'uld parasites from Stargate SG-1. PRIMITIVE This one is a little tough. Since the text mentions "stone-age", I decided to only choose miniatures with stone-age type weapons (otherwise, I could just pick any sword-wielding fantasy miniatures). Some contenders are; Reaper Troglodytes Reaper Lizardman Warrior (I know there are other lizardmen, but this older sculpt is one of my favorites) D&D miniatures Quaggoth Slave D&D miniatures Norker D&D miniatures Wereboar Star Wars miniatures Nelvaanian Warrior Star Wars miniatures Talz Warrior Star Wars miniatures Talz Chieftan Let me know which Primitives you like (or suggest some more). I'm leaning towards re-basing and using the Star Wars Talz miniatures PORIGOTA (Reaper Burrowing Behemoth) Also a perfect fit based on the description. I think you could use any sort of Umber Hulk or Ambull miniature as well. REPAIRBOT There are several little robots in the Reaper Bones line that you could use for these. I'm probably just going to pull something out of my Star Wars miniatures collection. RYAKAN (Star Wars Mynock) A cross between a bat and a hairless bird, huh? I'm just going to use my Star Wars miniatures Mynocks for these. The Reaper Nightcloak is another good option for these creatures (Bones version not in stores yet). (Zombicide Invader Xenomoth) I saw in my Zombicide Invader board game that there are flying creatures called Xenomoths. Also a pretty good fit for these critters. You might be able to find them loose on eBay. SENTRABOT Any decent security or warbot miniature could fill this role. Again, Reaper has several in their line that would work for this... [roger, roger] SEWER-DRAGON [Maybe it’s the chemical cocktails found in industrial run-off, or maybe it’s just biology, but wherever people have set up vast industrial complexes, or even vast habitation centres, various breeds of large, vicious lizards have been found lurking in the dark, wet corners underneath. While there is huge diversity in the breeds of these lizards, they are little studied, and nearly universally considered pests (incredibly dangerous pests, mind). Thankfully, most people can just avoid the areas they inhabit.] (WoW Warp Stalker) This seems like another catch-all for the aligator-in-the-sewer type of critter. I'm going to use an old World of Warcraft Warp Stalker miniature. I feel like I totally missed a fairly obvious one here - the Reaper Bones Basilisk. Definitely fits the description of a large vicious lizard. SHENGRYLLA [Often called the ‘Crazy Monkey’, the shengrylla is a primate-like creature that stands about half the height of a typical humanoid. It is characterized by its three glowing eyes that exhibit a “crazed” look and a pair of prehensile tails. The Shengrylla use their extra sharp teeth to feed off the electrical energy stored in power cells and energy converters, and are thus often found near settlements. Shengrylla have a pair of prehensile tails which they can use to move quickly and gracefully over almost any terrain. While mostly seen as scavengers, the energy cells carried by the independent crews often attract the crazy monkeys and cause them to attack.] (Imps x3 STL by DuncanShadow) I just found these cool crazy looking imps over on thingiverse by DuncanShadow. I think if they are scaled properly, they might be good for this creature, even if they don't match the description. It seems that Obsidian_Prime has a "3 Eyed 2 tailed Space Monkey" posted over on thingiverse as well, but it's not my favorite. (HorrorClix Tickler) Another critter I dug out of my collection; a HorrorClix Tickler. Looks crazy enough, right? TANGLER (D&D miniatures Darkmantle) I think the older D&D miniatures Darkmantle fits this creature perfectly. There is also a decent version of the Darkmantle by ClayRade over on thingiverse. WARBOT Go over to the C.A.V. section of the Reaper website and pick something... WARP HOUND [Sometimes called ‘The Spacer’s Nightmare’, these large, vicious, dog-like creatures are poorly understood, but thankfully extremely rare. Able to move through the folds in space in a way similar to ships, they can appear at any point at any time with no warning. Unlike ships, their ability to travel appears unaffected by gravity wells, and they are more than capable of ‘jumping’ straight onto a vessel, station, or surface of a planet.] (D&D Howler) (MK Blood Demon) The classic D&D Howler miniature would be a good fit for this creature (both the pre-painted collectible version and the metal Chainmail version). I also think the Mage Knight Blood Demon might be a decent fit (in any variant of its color scheme). Oh, and I am officially adding the Reaper Hound of Tindalos to the list. What an awesome suggestion. I hope this helps some of you in preparing miniatures for those random encounters. I look forward to seeing what other players are using for these critters, and for suggestions and alternate ideas to the miniatures posted here. Grab your loot-sack and charge your lasers, it's a dangerous galaxy out there...
  6. OMG, it's Paul F Tompkins as The Devil 😆
  7. You can have up to 10 models (Leader, Devout, up to 8 minions - free or bonus minions count against this total). As far as which can have wings, you can use whatever you want, even if you don't have miniatures with the "fly" ability. You just have to note which ones can or can't fly, regardless of wings. A frog demon without wings could have the "fly"ability, you just explain it away as having it jump an incredible distance. And as for demons with wingh that can't fly, that could be part of their eternal punishment - having wings but not being able to use them. It's Hell, nothing has to make sense. You are standing in line at the HELLp desk, and your customer service ticket number is 666. Now serving number 4...
  8. So, a couple of YouTubers with miniature channels made a skirmish game of battles in Hell... and I bought it. The game, Reign in Hell, is decent - but there are Many typos... This gives me a chance to use all of those demon and devil miniatures that I've collected over the years. I wasn't planning on having so many, but they just sort of accumulated. I've got stuff from D&D, Bones, World of Warcraft, HorrorClix, Dreamblade, MageKnight, etc. But I'm here not only to have the discussion start about this game, but also to ask the forum to help me find something specific. Does anyone know of a miniature of a guy in a business suit with a briefcase and devil horns, and possibly a tail coming out of his suit? I'm thinking of a corporate demon/devil. I suppose I could kitbash something, but if it already exists, it will save me some trouble.
  9. Those official plastics sculpts just aren't doing it for me. Maybe 20 years ago, but not with what is available now. I am actually glad I kept all of my original Warzone: Mutant Chronicles and Void stuff that I got on clearance oh-so-many years ago. Using minis from a single faction would be suitable OP4 trooper options, and if I mix-and-match the faction minis, they could easily make a decent "G.I. Joe" type of coalition pirate crew (mismatched uniforms, gear, etc). Still working on cleaning up the mold lines and modifying a bunch of the old WotC plastic Star Wars minis. There are some decent sculpts in that range. Several of the Wild West Exodus line of minis are pretty cool as well, but they run about as much as Infinity miniatures.
  10. In the unending search for unusual/unique miniatures to use for sci-fi stuff (and specifically for Stargrave), I came across the Mantic Warpath/Deadzone Rebs Faction boxes (Starter, Booster and Alpha Team sets). Since I backed the Star Saga kickstarter, I already have most of the minis from the Alpha Team set, so I just got the Booster set. Go check them out on Amazon or eBay. Hopefully this will help some of you fill up your ranks.
  11. Apart from a bunch of printed one-off maps that get re-used once in a while for common locations (cantina, hangar bay, etc), I also use sets of tiles from various sci-fi board games. Star Saga and Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster were already mentioned (I actually bought the Battle for Alabaster game specifically for the tiles, since the full game was only a few dollars more than just the spare tile set, so I got bonus miniatures!). Zombicide: Invader and Deep Madness also have great tile sets (got those from the Kickstarter campaigns). And back when WotC was doing Star Wars RPGs and miniatures, they made a handful of maps for the miniatures battle game, and a single set of SW themed tiles (since they were already doing so many sets of D&D tiles around that time). I have a couple of those tile sets as well. And I still have my first edition Space Hulk full game with tiles. I also have the 3rd Ed Space Hulk (and extra tiles bought on eBay), but I sold my 2nd Ed Space Hulk because the art was a bit "cartoony" (since it came out around the time as the original Necromunda). Unfortunately, I missed out on a set of floor tiles made for the most recent edition of Necromunda. So, unless I get some new game that comes with its own maps or tiles, I may never need any additional map or tile resources for the remainder of my gaming carrer.
  12. ...huh. I think the Broken Infantry from the Maelstrom's Edge line actually look a bit better (Maelstrom's Edge was also mentioned in the creator's blog by one of the posters). I think a lot of my "pirate" opposition will be made up of repurposed WotC Star Wars miniatures. Several of my crew are already modified or cleaned-up/repainted minis from that line (there will be pics eventually). I've got some Bones Chronoscope minis in there as well. I have old Cadian Imperial Guard as local militia OpFor troops (or Tau for militia on an alien world). And tons of Tyranids and D&D mosters as "critters" for less-than-civilized worlds.
  13. Initially, I hadn't considered the opposition force miniatures, and was just focusing on making miniature options for my crew. But after reading the creator's blog, I'm now working on some miniatures from my collection that aren't exactly my favorites, and I probably wouldn't use them in my own crew, but they would be suitable as loaner minis for another player, or as OpFor as described in that blog. Even more stuff to work on. I shall live forever* *(according to the universal law that states "when you run out of miniatures to work on... you die")
  14. It's like the first edition of Zombicide miniatures (same creator, CMON). All the survivors were color coded to their stat cards (before they started using the colored rings in Black Plague and Massive Darkness). Even then, I still write the survivor's name on the bottom in fine-point sharpie.
  15. If you have a steady hand, I would almost want to suggest that you just wipe the edge clean with alocohol after you are finished painting. Might save you the extra effort.
  16. Ok, so reading about this topic makes me want to chime in. But let me back up a bit... My first miniatures (back in high school in the 80s) were the old Grenadier D&D miniatures. Since they had integral bases, and I only used them for D&D, adding additional basing material never occurred to me (or my other gamer friends). The first time I remember seeing miniatures with separate bases were the old Citadel "beaky" space marines. I guess I just never noticed anything with separate bases before that. I eventually got into those Citadel/Games Workshop miniatures in the early 90s, and I based everything using superglue. I didn't know any advanced basing techniques yet, and I never even bothered to fill in the gaps in the slotta-bases. However, to give the metal minis a little more stability for gluing, I would put a kink in the miniature's slotta tab with needle-nosed pliers, so when inserted into the base, it would touch the sides of the slot (front-to-back), and give the glue more contact points. And that's as far as my basing skills progressed throughout the 90s. Then in the early 2000s, Warmachine came out. When I built my first warjack, there was a lot of open space in the base from the slot of those first models, and I did not like it. But I also wasn't at a point where I wanted to do scenic bases either. So I planned to fill in the slot after the model was completely built and glued to the base. But I didn't know much about putty or greenstuff yet, so I planned to fill it with superglue. It took several attempts of fill-and-cure to get a decent fill, but I eventually got there. I had access to brush-on glue accelerator for an intant cure (from my work), so that helped the process. I ended up with a bead on top of the slot gaps, which I then scraped and sanded down with a couple of custom tools I made. The results look something like this... By the time I finished the starter army box and a few single units, I had the process down pretty well. To cover larger areas of a gap, I came up with a clever trick; cut a strip of masking tape the width of the area you want to cover (either between the feet or on either side), brush a little glue accelerator to the adhesive side of the tape, then apply it to the base (probably with tweezers). Then flip the model over and pour superglue into the slot. When the glue hits the accelerator on the tape, it rapid cures. Wait a few minutes and remove the tape. now you have a relatively flat surface of hardened superglue. I would apply a bit more accelerator to the top side, and then a bit more glue with a toothpick (which would be sanded flat and smooth later). I learned to only apply the accelerator to the top surface. The glue needs room to expand, and if you cure the top and bottom surfaces, the glue can only go outwards (sideways) from there (possibly spreading the slot a tiny bit, and loosening all of your work up to that point). I got heavily into the Warmachine/Iron Kingdoms setting for D&D, and I began buying Reaper fantasy miniatures to use for those games. The Warlord line was fairly new at this point, so I decided to base those miniatures with the same 30mm rounded bases as the Warmachine stuff (so it would all match). Here's a sample... There were some Dark Heaven Legends minis that I planned to use as well, but since they had the integral bases, I wasn't sure how to proceed. I wasn't familiar with pinning feet to bases yet, so that wasn't an option. But I did have access to a belt sander (again, at work), so I carefully sanded down the bases to have just a very thin remainder, and I glued them to the rounded bases like that. Here's a sample... I then started buying a lot of Reaper DHL minis, and based them all like that (30mm rounded bases). All of my metal fantasy minis are on these bases, but my sci-fi stuff is still all on 25mm regular bases. I have a few unbuilt Warmachine minis that would totally fit in a sci-fi RPG setting like Starfinder, so I'm debating if I should mount them with their included 30mm bases, or go full sci-fi and just put them on regular 25mm bases? I've also gotten into Infinity recently, and those minis are so pretty that I don't want to even see the tab or the slot. So I have been cutting off the tab in between the feet, and filing it into two individual foot "pins" that I use to mount the mini. I then have to make matching holes in the base. Tedious, but I looks great with no seams. **Edit** I didn't have any Infinity miniatures currently in the works at the stage of making pins out of the tab, but I was in the process of working on a Reaper Chronoscope Nick Stone. Since I had extra Infinity bases, I figured I would just do the same for him and show you guys... I find the desired position and make a few marks on the base, then I open a hole through and form it with a round needle file. (also re-basing some Bones Chronoscope stuff from a previous Kickstarter) I like the Nick Stone miniature a lot, but I felt that the Bones version lost a lot of detail (at least, compared to my Infinity Miniatures), so I went and bought the metal version.
  17. I think you really captured the essence of the drawing. Good choice for the base mini as well.
  18. So cool, dude! GREAT use of that Tau sensor piece! (totally gonna steal that...)
  19. I Just made a post over in the Conversions section about modifying a couple of the pre-painted plastic D&D miniatures for my Stargrave crew. Here's the link; https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68042-chaos-wolfs-conversion-clinic-pic-heavy-open-topic/&do=findComment&comment=1980107 Enjoy.
  20. I just made a post over in the Conversions section about modifying a couple of the pre-painted plastic D&D miniatures for a sci-fi setting. Here's the link; https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68042-chaos-wolfs-conversion-clinic-pic-heavy-open-topic/&do=findComment&comment=1980107 Enjoy.
  21. Ok, this post will cross a few topics because it has conversions, appropriating fantasy for other genres, and miniatures for my Stargrave crew (but I'll just post it here, with a link to it in the other relevant topic threads). So, it started in the topic talking about the game Stargrave coming out next year (basically, a sci-fi version of Frostgrave). While discussing various miniature lines to use in the game, I started going through my collection looking for possible crew members. I have a lot of the pre-painted plastic D&D and Star Wars miniatures, so I figured that a few of those would ultimately end up being used (modified or not). While going through my D&D miniatures looking for stuff that could pass for an alien race (and not wearing tattered clothes or armor), I found a Kuo-Toa Hunter and a Bullywug Thug (which I had several duplicates of each). Then I started going through my bits box looking for appropriate weapons. At first I just thought to put a gun in the Kuo-Toa's hand. Then I thought that maybe I would cut off the right arm and reposition it. So if I was going to go that far, replacing both arms was not out of the question. For the Bullywug, I thought I might make a combo melee/ranged weapon (something like the staff weapons in Stargate), but I ended up making him a heavy weapon. So, starting with the Kuo-Toa, I found a matching set of Kroot arms (from WH40K) that had a Kroot Rifle in them. Since the Kroot are skinny like the Kuo-Toa, it wouldn't look too out of place. I did have to thin out the thickness of the Kroot shoulders to fit the narrow frame of the Kuo-Toa (from front-to-back). All of the mold lines were removed using jeweler's files and sandpaper. I also noticed that the Kuo-Toa miniature was missing his pinky toe on his right foot (after I had already made some progress), so I had to fix that as well... (I used the remnant of a weapon hilt for the replacement toe) The only challenge was matching up the left arm to the left hand that was already part of the rifle piece. Since they were specifically made to match the width of a Kroot miniature body, it took a little tweaking to get it there. (just ignore those guys in the background...) Continuing on with the Bullywug, I found a WH40K Heavy Bolter (vehicle version) in my bits box. It seemed about the right size for what I wanted to do, but because the Bullywug has a bit of a "gut", I knew I would have to remove material from both the weapon and the body to make the fit seem a bit more natural. I also put a cavity on the left side of the weapon for his fist to fit into. I planned on leaving part of the spear haft and bending it so that it would appear to be part of a hand-hold. Here is a test-fit... I already have a couple of miniatures with actual Heavy Bolters equipped, so I needed to change it up a bit. I found the emitter from a Heavy Flamer, and set to work merging the two... (could be a flamethrower, could be a ray gun) And since I was going for an Aliens Smart-Gun style of weapon positioning, I needed to have a proper grip on the back end. I used the remnant of a Bolter grip, and opened a hole in the Bullywug''s hand for it to fit into. Here's how it all came together... And here's the pair with before and after comparisons. So hopefully this will inspire you to make use of some of those "common" duplicates that you probably have a bunch of. There will be more miniature modifications later on for this project, but I felt that these fit into this topic the best.
  22. I started going through my collection to find possible crewmates, and I COMPLETELY forgot about the miniatures from the Star Saga kickstarter. I was initially a little disappointed in them when they showed up because the sculpting wasn't as good as some of the CMON minis from various boards games I had backed. But upon a second glance, some of them are about equal to some of the pre-painted collectible Star Wars minis, and with a little work, some of them will definitely be on the crew (or as replacements as crew are killed off, assuming it has a similar mechanic to Frostgrave). So, bonus freebie score!
  23. Okay, this is not so much of a conversion as it is a "repair". I backed the Deep Madness kickstarter a few years ago, and when I got my game, two of the monster miniatures were each missing a piece. I requested replacements and received them, but I still had two incomplete monsters that were just sitting in my project box. Well, with all of the "free time" so many of us have had recently, I finally got around to making those repairs. So here's the two monsters with the missing parts; (one was also broken off of its base, but that's an easy fix) And here's the parts I chose to use as replacement limbs/tentacles; The pieces are plastic Tyranid Gaunt arms from my bits box. Here's how they turned out; I used a ball-end dremel bit to alter the shape of the socket holes a bit, and just a pointy tool to hand-carve in the little details at the ends of the replacement limbs. And when I got them glued in place, I sprinkled on a little baking soda just to fill and solidify the super glue. I technically have no further use for these (since I still have the complete replacement versions in the game boxes), so I will probably just get rid of them on ebay.
  24. Is it possible he's from the original Warzone/Mutant Chronicles line of minis? They had a very similar theme to WH40K in the early and mid 90s. The hole in the back makes me think that he was supposed to be on a chain connected to a larger boss miniature.
