A really cool but simple DIY mini- foamboard, cardboard, cocktail sticks, wire and sprue… and a lethal new fast attack unit for the Holy Soviet Army!

Thanks Ragbones! We've got a belter coming up soon, christening the new board, upcycled terrain and repainted minis as well as the new stuff :-)

@doublesix66 awesome! Let us know how you get on, would love to see some pics – I'm sure you can go further adding detail, extra weapons etc

Thanks @Plasticviking3, appreciate it. All feedback welcome, and if you have an AAR you'd like to share that would be AWESOME :-)

Will do that soon. Rules almost finalised. Distracted by creating more enemies – Ceratopian Space Pirates and Lizard Thugs. And making your neatly easy drones…..

@Plasticviking, those sound cool as hell, would love to see some pics! Hope the drones are coming along well :-)
