Using the brilliant models made by Dave Pildner (GravityThief) I am embarking on a project to pimp my AGTfOS.



I realize I may need to enlarge my map to accommodate the models.

No - they were sculpted and hand cast by GravityThief as described in another thread here.

They are awesome!

As my 1/72 Circus Maximus project is now largely finished I have now turned my attention to these models.

My plan is to mount all models on 20 mm Warhammer bases. I will then base coat everything in white.

Colour schemes will be according to the original Dragon version with some adjustments (all crew of one race will have the same colour).

Do you need more card ideas for the D&D Adventure System games?

Well done Mattias/Ozmo! I remember playing Awful Green Things alot growing up in addition to playing Search for the Emperor's Treasure. I especially enjoyed the dice rolling mini-adventure chart at the back of the rulebook in the unfortunate event the crew had to escape the ship.

I'm thinking about how to add the stats to the models. One way of doing it would be to make small stickers that would fit to the bases. Each base side is about 3x20 mm so that would probably work. One question then becomes what type face to use. The original counters had hand written text, but later editions have a bold font. I may go with Futura, which was used in the Dragon magazine and is fairly simple.

All models are now painted:



A few touch ups remain. I also need to print stickers with stats, names and set up information for all models. A new, even larger and updated map (based on my version of the original map) will also be printed.

It seems the local print shop is closed for vacation so I guess my project will now be on hold for a week or two... shake

They really turned out great!

I like the gun metal grey look of the robot. It's much better than the way I painted mine. Hmmm... Now I may have to make a new one... grrr... I also like that you made Doc's medical bag white. I was thinking "black doctor's bag" when I painted mine, but the white is much better.

I would love to get more info from you as to how you end up making the names & stats stickers. I still have yet to make some for mine, and it's bugging me.

Also, have you thought about how you will store them? If you have any ideas for that, I would love to hear them.

Now get that map made and let the battles begin! I can't wait to see some pictures of the pieces in play!

Your models are beautiful and were a joy to paint. I had one minor accident where I broke a leg of Doc, but I fixed it with wire and green stuff.

I have already made the stats stickers (as a file). They will go on the side of the base. The name of the crew member will go on another side. On the third side there will be set up codes which go with the map I've made (they mean that you will not have to refer to the complex set up instructions in the rulebook).

I now need to have the stats stickers printed on sticky paper.

PM me and I'll send you the stats file (they have a grey background to fit with the colour on my bases).

The stats are now on the bases:



On the back is setup information and dots to indicate who can operate the self destruct and outside doors:



The new map is large enough to accommodate the models:
