Nightfall in Downlode. A strange voice is coming from the woods. A lone watchtower is standing at the edge of civilisation. Voices from the dark are hissing through the trees. Suddenly the tower shakes under a weight it was not built for. Tapping and stepping is heard from above...




The sun is rising and the queen is illuminated in a halo of the first rays.



She brought her breed along with herself to initiate the end of mankind...

















Some brave Downloders are guarding the watchtower while the aliens are coming in. The men have no chance, but will defend the tower and will make their stand to the last breath...











The aliens rally for their final attack on the humans:



And after a long day of violence and blodshed the doomed last man standing finally meets his fate from face to face...



I varnished all aliens glossy (what I usually don´t do with figures) to give them the slimey look. (I put them in the WIP cabinet, because no space is left in the others any more... Crying or Very sad Compare size with the Warmachine models and 1/48 Huey.)

That´s what I thought at first... Crying or Very sad
I gave them a three-step drybrush, but they turned out far too light. Mad
I had to wash them all black again and removed some of the wash with isopropyl alcohol. My wife accepts them now, but still says: "They were shiny black in the movies..." Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I´ve had a life-size door poster in my first own place and the alien was in fact just black with some metallic effect on its teeth.

Hopefully...movies showed it otherwise yet... Crying or Very sad Well, but they never met a biker gang to be honest. Who knows? Twisted Evil
