SPACEFUTURE: The Vespulid Hive, from Khurasan


Recommended Posts

They do NOT come in peace. They choose violence, as is the wasp's way. Wasps with jetpacks and guns. Nightmarish.




Truly remarkable sculpts from Khurasan (whose customer service is deserving of praise!) in their 15mm sci-fi line. The basic trooper is big for a 15mm humanoid, and about on par with a small 25mm scale human. The drones are about the size of a 32mm humanoid and the Hive Queen is a towering colossus. 


The troops are all one-piece casts, which is remarkable given their spindly limbs. 

I enjoyed grading the colors from citron up in the airbrush. Here are some flying troops, on flight stands from another set of space minis:





Ground troops:



More infantry, this time standing up:


Note that one of them, and one of the fliers, has a telescope! 




The beefy Drones, each dual-wielding and equipped with artillery. Notice that these do not have stingers, unlike the others--a nice touch of verisimilitude there.







And the formidable Hive Queen, a colossal tyrant. (Unlike most of the others, she comes in many pieces.)












She is here to turn the enemy into incubating chambers for grubs, post-mortem if the enemy is lucky. 

Who is the enemy?
She's not picky,







Space wasps. Not even once.

good job, I have a set of those bugs waiting on my desk.

Ooo! I'm looking forward to seeing them when they get done! Lots of color schemes--I almost went with emerald jewel wasps, but didn't want to make them too much like the Mantis Men.

I love the colors and patterning on these! And, you always find THE coolest sculpts!

Thank you! I'm in a couple of pulp retro sci-fi gaming groups on FB and they have a lot of great suggestions; that's where I ran into these and several other of my favorites.
