Astronauts and Insect Men

Pheeeew, I barely made it this month. I have so much going on in my life, right now, so I forget how fast time is running.

Last month was my birthday and I was lucky enough to get some lead as a present. This time my wife had made an order with East Riding Miniatures and bought me, among other things, some Space Cochroaches and some Astronauts.

Pitting it off on Mars.

"Zrak zrak zzrraa!!!"

"Zrzz zrak zrak!"

"Zrak for the camera!"

The Insect Men will easily fit with my Rogue Trader setting, I gave them a fast tan/brownish paintjob and I think it worked out really well. Maybe the red tips on their guns make them look a bit cartoonish, but I think it works out to give them a bit more detail.

The astronouts will probably be more hard to use for any game I can think of right now, especially since they are only four guys and only two of them have guns. But I really like the models and they were fun to paint. Again I used a pretty quick paintjob on them and since Astronauts are mainly white clad, I think they ended up looking flashy.
