They Blew It Up!

Those damn dirty alien-apes!  Damn them to alien-hell!
If only this came with a liberty-torch.
So this terrain piece is painted and ready for the table.  It hovers somewhere on the edge of difficult and impassable terrain.  The precise nature will likely depend on the scenario.  Either way, it blocks line of sight and adds a little more visual interest to the set-up.
The alien-Ozymandias - look upon his works ye mighty and despair!
 I toyed with the idea of painting the eyes a brilliant green, but didn't want to ruin the 'fallen statue' effect.
Note the sci-fi figure for scale - guess who's figures came in the mail?
On a side note: Welcome and thanks to all of you who have recently started following this blog.  Watching the number of followers creep slowly upwards is very rewarding.  Thanks also to those of you who hav eposted encouragement in the comments of recent posts.  I read every one of them even if I don't respond.  As with the followers, your comments are part of what keeps this little blog of little men trundling along.


  1. Cool piece. In games, you could let aliens move across it (small ones at least) and be impassable to humans (radioactive, or alien illness, along those lines?).

  2. Great little game piece. very useful perhaps it is lying dormant under the sand awaiting the command to rise

  3. This alien doesn't look like any of the miniatures I have. I think it works as an ancient remnant of a long dead civilization - the current fight is (in part) a fight over the bones of that civilization.

  4. I love how the Alien Statue turned out.

  5. You might want to strip a few old computers - I found strange gold discs in a HDD. Always good to have sticking out of the Sand.

  6. Haha, this post made me laugh..."Those damn dirty alien-apes! Damn them to alien-hell!"

    But seriously, where is that crazy statue from? This looks really cool.
