AHPC6 Entries - The Crusties

or the "Nasty Nokians" as Curt has dubbed them

For my second of these review posts, I've chosen to go with my 15mm Crusties from GZG. These were posted as five separate entries over the course of the penultimate weekend and the first three days of the final week. Surprisingly they were my only SciFi entries (if you exclude a couple of my 28mm character figures).

I went for a "traditional" colour scheme for weapons and equipment - white (actually, Sky Grey) darker greys and orange. For the infantry and cavalry I used a mix of light brownish colours with a sepia wash.

The first post was the light armoured contingent of four walkers and some armoured infantry.

The second entry was four cavalry (prawnelry?) scouts - Crusties mounted on giant shrimps.

The third entry was the infantry "grunts" (clicks?) - 8 bases of them.

Fourth up were the infantry heavy weapons teams.

The fifth and final entry was made up of the commander's base and the specialists.

These were a fun bunch of figures to paint and I've recently received some reinforcements that I'll be prepping and painting shortly.


  1. Cracking crusties - like the colours you"ve gone with.

  2. I really like this force. The basing is great and basically everything is really good. Maximum Pew Pew! Cheers

  3. Nice combintion of colors! Like them! Those giant shrimps look awesome!


  4. @ Dannoc - cheers! For the colours I largely followed what other people have done, not limited to gamers - there were lots of pics on the web of "replica" weapon creations by District 9 fans :)

    @ Brendon - thanks! Pew pew! :)

    @ Ray - cheers! :)

    @ Peter - thanks! As I mentioned in my reply to Dannoc, I was heavily influenced by how other people have painted them :)
