I've had a bit of a busy week this week. I have been doing lots at work and not having time to do stuff at home...
...I even have to work the weekend.
I don't mind too much because I get to play with helicopters for a change (instead of just being a glorified desk jockey).
Unfortunately, I can't promise any progress on my current projects due to life...so don't expect too much in the way of pics.
I have been thinking a lot about 'stuff' lately and one thing that has crossed my mind is the lack of 15mm sci-fi Dwarfs. In fact, apart from Hasslefree Grymn, there aren't that many 28mm scale sci-fi Dwarfs either. There is also a lack of mushroom men ;) !
Where are there decent sci-fi Lizardmen?
I really think that it is time for a few new ranges.
In fact, I am so convinced, I may even sculpt a range myself. I wonder who would buy a range of 15mm Dwarfs off me? Fat little sci-fi Dwarfs with big guns and beards. Maybe some 30mm tall Space Lizards. Hey, if I actually managed to do 15mm scale space Dwarfs, maybe I could do 28mm scale ones as well?
So, what makes a range then?
What do you really need in a sci-fi range?
A MEGA leader.
His/Her support staff - comms, flag waver (?), bat-man, drill sergeant.
A few officers.
A few Sergeants.
A few Corporals.
A few big-gunners.
A lot of basic troops.
Powered suits of armour?
What about space pirates?
A MEGA leader.
A bunch of 'characters'
A bunch of big-gunners.
A bunch of mis-matched regulars.
Small groups or large forces?
What about a small squad of super armoured Lizardmen with enough firepower to take down an army!
What would people really want to see?
See you on the bright side!
