I have begun building a small settlement of my own, mostly meant for sci-fi games, but most of the buildings will work for modern, near future or post apocalypse settings too. Naturally the town must be inhabited by someone else than Space Marines, Orks, Saurians and other conflict oriented miniatures, so I begun collecting and painting some civilians to fill out the streets.
First up is a set of sci-fi civilians from Urban Construct.
The complete set ready to go about their daily buisness.
I think the models are quite good. Not the best I have seen, but they are simple and will work well in the settlement I am building. They also scale up with Rogue Trader and most other miniatures I use. Still I took some scale shots:
L-R: Black Hat, U.C., Spacelords, U.C., Rogue Trader.
L-R: Foundry, U.C., Reaper, U.C., Rogue Trader.
Besides the Urban Construct miniatures I also painted a few other miniatures. These are not strictly civilians, but will do well for sci-fi or post apocalypse:
EM4 Miniature and converted Citadel Thug.
Chaos in the streets.
And up the wall for a group shot.
I will be posting more about my settlement soon. For now it includes a few houses, some cars and general bits and bobs. Hopefully it will end up being terrain enough for a full table. At least i am half way there when I combine the current settlement with my wasteland terrain.
