A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm! Every meal is a banquet. Every paycheck a forture. Every formation a parade! I love the corps.
So, I've been hitting these a little at a time since the game was released. I haven't played the game (as I mostly want to recreate the old Leading Edge Games game), but I'm sure I will eventually.
On with the show:
These are from images I posted over in Off Topic. I just realized last night that I'd finished (or nearly so) over half the box!
The eggs and facehuggers were done in batches. I could have done them all the same, but I wanted there to be slight differences. I wasn't able to find a lot of information on the actual prop eggs used, so I kind of winged it based on what others were doing. The eggs were Forest Green, Grass Green, and Jade Green--according to my notes. I think that I started with Pure Black on the bases and drybrushed the Forest Green and Grass Green.
The fleshy bits were done in Golden Shadow, Golden Skin, and Golden Highlight for three closed and one open egg and one facehugger.
The other set of eggs and facehugger were done with Tanned Skin, Tanned Highlight, and Fair Shadow.
I am finding that I'm starting with a triad and then "bumping" it up (or down) to keep the colors "together" but add some variety.
The first batch of crates are Stormy Grey, Cloudy Grey, and Misty Grey.
Second batch of crates is Chestnut Gold, Palamino Gold, and Buckskin Pale. I am really pleased with the dirty look they have. The sealer was still drying on them, so they were still on the caps when I took the picture.
The Weyland-Yutani logo is Pure White and Sunlight Yellow over Pure Black.
Still six crates to go (2 will be red, 4 in blue or green). I've already made up some sort of weird rules to allow me to justify using multiple (non-grey) colors, also six computer terminals, and two sentry guns. Those have already been started, so will be quick to finish (hopefully). I've seen some folks do some great things with the terminal screens, but that won't be me.
Our campaign is geared towards producing two opposing factions for the initial launch of the game. The Lords faction fight for mineral resources which sustain their immortality; the Omrath faction fight to protect lands deemed sacred in a religious war. We have designed 5 boxed sets for each factions. If you are seeking to play the game, and not just collect the miniatures, it is recommended to buy all 5 boxed sets for one of the factions. The reward structure is setup so that backers can spend in $50 increments, since all boxed sets have been designed to retail for $50 each. Below are the specifications for each boxed set, across the 2 starter factions:

Fresh off the paint table, some Rogues from the Stars from...well, "Rogue Stars". They're very retro, and would definitely work for "Slipstream" or "Rogue Stars" as well.
The assembled Rogues:
The Captain (though he strikes me as more of a Rogue Trader:
