Okay, inspired by a couple of guys who build cheap terrain for games, I hobbies around today with some throw out items, some 3D printed greebles and some cheap boxes from Hobby Lobby.
Okay, with Reapercon coming up I will be running some Stargrave & Frostgrave games. So I have been in the position with transporting BOXES of minis and terrain before, and even though I have a truck, I thought that there might be an easier way to carry the stuff. Both of the 'Grave games are heavy terrain and while this is part of their charm, it will be much easier if I can limit the number of boxes going to Texas with me. Then the other day in Hobby Lobby, I was trying to figure out how to build this stuff, when I found their collapsed gift boxes. Perfect! And CHEAP! So I hit them with some variety of spray paint and then used the Plastic Mesh for windows after they dried. I am a bit concerned because I tried good old Elmer's Glue and I am not 100% confident in it's ability to work on the plastic of the mesh. So, everything is drying tonight and tomorrow will be the acid test when I try folding the boxes into their flat configuration. Anyway, here are the pics as I went along.
Normally I stick to Fantasy but recently I acquired 3D files for a wonderful faction of Space Woofs.
The Jackals from Onepagerules.
Naturally I bought them all...
Don't worry citizen, WOOF has no plans to conquer the Galaxy...honest...
In the welcome pack of that patreon I also got several Robot Legion Troops and I got some free Alien Hive and Eternal Dynasty minis as well.
Combined with a "few" other scifi minis and files I have, I decided it to be time to explore the Galaxy.
This is not my first time though.
Here are some minis I painted in the past that fit the bill.
Enough of that...
On to adventures in Space!
I present the Jackals.
First 3D prints are now curing.
A Jackal Assault Beast.
Three Jackal Nomads
A few Power Packs, Backpack/Rocket pack and an Oil Drum.
This will make a nice start.
Since I don't play the game I will paint what I like and make up my own stories like you're used from me.
Official background for the Jackals:

I'm proud to present Diehard Miniatures 8th Kickstarter which launches Thursday 26th May at 9am GMT!
This campaign will allow Diehard Miniatures to expand upon our very popular Sci-Fi range, the aim is to bring 79 new figures including freebies out with your help!
Our main drive in this campaign will have a good versus bad theme, and those that dwell in the grey area. Sci-Fi Law Enforcers will have a new limited edition figure, Marshal Lex is mounted on her Grav patrol bike. We are very lucky to have one of the last sculpts from our guest sculptor Kev White of Hasslefree fame!! We aim to fund:
THIRTEEN new 5 man units - 65 new miniatures!!
FOURTEEN free stretch goal miniatures - characters, familiars and droids.
AND an opportunity to pick up existing units from the Diehard range that complement this release.
This Diehard KS is slightly different from our previous campaigns, we will be dipping our toe into the realms of Freebies! A first for us and hopefully a fresh new experience for you, any pledges of £30 or above will automatically get freebies. The more backers and the higher the pledge the quicker the stretch goals will be unlocked to a maximum of £87 worth of freebies!!
