Groovy !

Shouldn't that vehicle be painted orange, with a red and blue flag (with white stars) on the roof?

Yeah … Dukes of Hazzard is one of those TV series that hasn't aged so well …

fun idea. keep it up.

it's so true what you say about 40k, I've got a gun but let me hit something with it!

Using 1/76 Airfix Modern US infantry? Hats off man.

Cheers GreekGeek, was going to try some conversions before remembering- it's the Guard. There'll be hundreds of the little sods, it'd take forever! Keep an eye out for Orks and DIY Marines too :-)

Updated the Cheaphammer page with a few new pics – Orks, Guardsmen and Space Marines, all in 1/72!

Really neat stuff. I assume the orcs are fantasy figs with guns. Where did you get the marines? Love the term "cheaphammer" I may have to steal that.

The IG are nicely done. Are you going to do any of the notable IG types? I think there are plastic historical analogues for just about every kind of guardsman.

1/72? Ah, returning to sci-fi minaiture gaming's venerable roots, are we? Excellent.

Want more variety? Look here:

Starguard! figures are all 1/72 scale, so compatibility is excellent with most any plastic figures in the same scale.

And I thought I was the last 20mm SF gamer left on earth.

Most of my stuff is old Blade miniatures with converted mini-tanks (yes I go that far back) SF vehicles.

This inspires me to finish Future Command – the SciFi version of Combat Command. We play it at home but I haven't quite written up all the rules.

Great "scale".

I can post again!!!!!


@ordinary bass, the orcs were Caesar fantasy ones, the guns courtesy of Sgts Mess. Marines were greenstuff and cardboard and bitz stuck on to 1/72 Vietnam infantry I had lying around. Hope that helps! Glad you like the IG, I probably will in time :-)

@BlackWidowPilot – there's some awesome stuff there, cheers! Never understood why more people don't use this scale :-)

@Thomas Thomas – definitely not, we may be thin on the ground but we're around! Good luck finishing your game.
