10mm Terra Nova Project

10mm Sci-Fi Projects

As a young lad I grew up watching all of the Sci-Fi Programs of the late 70s and 80s, There are a few which particularly stuck in my mind Aliens,  Starship Troopers  and of course War of the Worlds.

So I thought I would combine all of these interest into one Sci-Fi Project to simplify matters.

I also thought with this being my first foray into Sci-Fi wargaming that I would invent ( with the help of Pendraken Miniatures forum members) two warring factions.

Nova Federation Army

Terra Nova Buildings

The rules we will be using are Future War Commander Rules

The core of the army will be built using Pendraken Miniature's.

Air support for the Nova Federation coming along nicely (Tutorial for stripping miniatures). The wife made the bases for the aircraft to stand on. And that completes the Nova Federation Army for now

After asking for help on the Pendraken forum, Grumpy came up with a brilliant suggestion of using the Avatar Scorpion RDA Gunship as transport for my armoured Marines  or as an objective.  so I bought 3 eBay Link.

I painted up a few of Pendrakens old sci-fi Marines and I'm certainly impressed with how easy they were to do.
