How about these head swaps from Impact Miniatures? They look very good on Kroot bodies.

Mantic Games have released their first news items on Pandora : A Sci-fi shipboard game between their Corporation humans and the mysterious 8th race.

However a couple of hints have eluded to further details. In the press release the comments:

"10 x 8th Race Scavengers"

and..

Project Pandora: Grim Cargo is the new sci-fi board game pitting the Corporation against the mysterious Veer-myn, who have boarded a Corporation Starship in attempt to steal its precious cargo – a cargo which the Corporation will do everything in it’s power to keep hold of...

If you look closely on the right side of the following image.. a snout and elongated front teeth..

Looks like we may just have Rats in Spaaaace..... (Shameless ripped from the Muppets)

Also on the Mantic page they cite them as being called "Veer-myn" so I definitely inclined to think it's a rat like race.

Any takers that the "protect at all costs" cargo is cheese?

You could be right, it could be a copy of the new Necron codex, it reeks of it.

Hmmm... Might just buy some now

Puppets War released some interesting head pieces again this week :

Nice replacements for Vespid or similar insectoid auxiliary ideas of your own.

Quick heads up by one of the admin team, thanks Che!

Added a new label to the alternate miniatures thread :

Lead Adventure Miniatures[Link]
I superb range of miniatures by the prolific Ratnik, covering several genres including moderns. The most interesting of which are these Fez wearing steampunk troopers. There is a series of these available; enough to make a Governor's personal guard for scenarios involving Tau diplomats etc..

You can see other miniatures I've collated from my searches and those of others in Hobby Resource [Alternate Alien & Ally Miniatures]

I just found these, and figured that they would be an interesting alternative to the Kroot.

Dark Potential Miniatures Game
Where humanity is holding on to its very survival. Where nature has reclaimed what was once hers. Where hostile aliens seek to finish what they failed to accomplish a hundred years ago: Destroy all of humanity. Pretty dramatic stuff, but some nice Protoss-esque aliens, the X'lanthos. There is also the 'Reclaimer' faction which would make suitably helmed bipedal opponents as in Battleship, the Movie.

Thanks Shas'O T'Ar'Cha!

Mantic Dreadball Aliens
Mantic has a few ranges on the go presently and one spin off in particular has been exploring alien entities. Member El'mo sent this one in

Image

Thanks El'mo!

Following this, we heard of yet another sighting:

Khurasan Garns
Khurasan Miniatures is known for their 15mm ranges mostly, however they have 30mm releases of several lines. One of which is the enormous reptilian Garn. Member ecwp1981 spied these for us.

Image

Thanks ecwp1981!

"replacement"? this thing is close enough to sue methinks.

A shame really, if it wasn't so "fat" it would have been a "crisis suit +1"

That looks great, but...I can't find it anywhere on the site! The only thing showing for me in their shop is the tank; can anyone else find the not-Battlesuit?
