…"Rakka' Starring Sigourney Weaver.

"The first effort from filmmaker Neil Blomkamp's Oats Studios has been released online. This short film venture finds Blomkamp directing a series of experimental short films that may serve as the foundation for feature film adaptations. The first, titled Rakka, is now available and it imagines a post-apocalyptic world dominated by an alien species that has nearly wiped out humanity. They terraform with methane factories, experiment on human bodies, and have essentially destroyed all vestiges of civilization.

Rakka features a pretty big A-list star in Sigourney Weaver, who co-starred in Blomkamp's last feature film Chappie and had given Blomkamp her support to lead his now-dead Alien sequel that would've picked up with Ripley, Newt, and Hicks.

The alien designs are, unsurprisingly, stunning, as Blomkamp has proven adept at crafting incredible looking effects on smaller budgets.

So for 15mm I am thinking

Loud Ninja Games Ikwen or converted GW Skinks (I think they will be about the right height for 15mm), you can just slobber on liquid green stuff and paint it black. Followed by unformed balls of green stuff for the nanite? globs following them around… mix with zombies with wires coming out of their heads.
