Nice paint job and photography. I thought the missile launcher bodies sucked too, and the poor paint job and photography on the website didn't help, but you've sold me on ordering a set!

Automaton Heavy Infantry

For my Alien Squad Leader project, I also picked up a pack (10 figures) of Automaton heavy infantry. The manufacturer classes these as providing "support level" firepower. The figures were painted the same as the previous automata, except for details.

Automaton Heavy Infantry with Plasma Guns

In the mix, I got three automata with flamers (well, the manufacturer calls them "plasma projectors"). The flame effect was an orange basecoat, a coat of transparent red paint, then a drybrush of yellow. (I'm thinking to go back and paint the back-mounted fuel tanks gunmetal grey, to make them stand out a bit more.)

Automaton Heavy Infantry with Mini-Guns

There were also three automata with mini-guns. (I don't know... with the backpack and the power cable, it looks more like a heavy triple laser to me.) I painted the cable blue to make it stand out more. (Note that the gun barrels are a bit crooked.)

Automaton Heavy Infantry with Missiles

The last variation are the automata with chest-mounted missile pods. I like these a lot, they look like they can fire a barrage at once. (But I wonder about reloads...) I painted the missile tips light blue.

Automaton Heavy Infantry

I've ordered the new edition of the rules, so I'll soon find out if I can still use these minis as I'd planned...
