The Aliens are starting to arrive.

Before I start today's post, I'd like to welcome Ihar Krautsou as the newest follower of Inso's World. Welcome aboard and I hope you find something that interests you as you walk around the gardens.

So... we had a bit of an update earlier this week that was all about Alien Visitors. Well, I have been hard at work converting things and have managed to complete the first Meteor Deployment System (MDS) by gluing two of the beads I got from Ebay to a Mantic Base and building them up slightly with a bit of Green-Stuff:

It's a very simple idea that will look better when painted and based. I specifically chose the Mantic bases because they have a recess that makes shaping a little crater a bit easier.

But you aren't really interested in a couple of beads glued to a base... you want to see troops. Well, you can't! You can't because I have only finished the first of the champions:

The grav sled is piloted by a psychic alien who projects a shield around them as they close with the enemy. When they get to a suitable point, the non-psychic champion leaps from the platform and smashes the living wotsits out of everything it comes into close combat with. The champion himself is just a head with various life support systems that not only keep him alive but also link him to his robotic armour. When not in battle, his remains are plugged into a different body that is more aligned to the size of the standard troops... a bit like swapping a decanter stopper from one decanter to another.

There is still a little bit of tinkering to do on this first onebut it is more or less finished. The second one is on the work bench getting a bit of TLC but is very WIP.

So... that's it for now.

See you from the ova-fields!
