Army Review: 15mm Crusties

Not a bunch of unwashed music festival-going types (well, I suppose they could be) but members of an alien race, possibly related to the "Prawns" from District 9. The figures are 15mm from GZG.

I'm not going to go OTT with these, although I do have a few additions in the painting queue - a pair of heavy walkers, a pair of light crab tanks and a few more infantry and PA troops.


  1. Very nice! I really like District 9, & I've had an eye on these great GZG figures for a while.

  2. Great looking force you have there!

    Cheers, Ross

  3. I believe they are based on the District 9 aliens, they apparently have several names 'Crusties' is the name given to them by GZG, but in the Tomorrow's War Universe they are known as the 'Marshborn'. They are a species on the run, refugees from another species of alien conquerors. Their technology is old and has been repaired many times, so their ships, vehicles, weapons and armour have a cobbled together appearance.

    1. Oops sorry, they look awesome. I hope I can paint mine as good when I get them.

  4. They look great and so much better then mine - oh they're still looking sinister in the box and looking rather shiny !

  5. @ Clint -is 15mm sci-fi ever badness? :)

    @ Pawn Cocktail - cheers! They are nice figures :)

    @ Ross - thanks! :)

    @ Robert - cheers! I forgot about the Marshborn from TW's fluff - thanks for the reminder :)

    @ Dannoc - thanks! Now, get on with painting yours! :)
