Starship Troopers - Cougar Exo Suits Win

Well, as any regular readers will know. I have a real love of the Mongoose Starship Troopers Miniatures game. I have a rather large collection of figures. Though mostly unpainted at this time.

So I regularly trawl ebay in the hope of finding odd bits here and there. And recently, I spotted some Cougar Exosuits. A box set of four, plus an officer.
Now usually these rare figures fetch silly prices. And I mean silly. The last box set I spotted, made nearly £100. Yes, £25per figure.

Well I took a punt and put a modest bid on, and by some miracle I won them.

Here they are!

For the grand some of £20.50. Not bad.

These should now mean I have a fair chance of being able to complete my intended goal of having an entire exo-suit, cougar and grizzly platoon.

I am planning on magnetising all of the exo-suit weapons, and hard points, so I may swap the weapon variants, as they are so hard to get hold of these days and so costly, the chances of me having "spares" to setup as variants are slim to zero.

However if anyone happens to have some exo-suits going unused in their lead mountains, please get in touch. :)

Ooops.. had a bit of a break.

Hi Folks, fans and followers.
Firstly apologies to those who have been waiting for updates on various projects on my blog. But real life has got in the way of late.

I have been enjoying a new job and not had the time to get any meaningful modelling or painting done.

However this should be now changing in the next few months.
So here we go..

Zombies and SST and 15mm Vietnam are on the to do lists. Then back to my WW2 projects.

I will do an update for each of my on-going projects as and when I get a moment over the next week or two.
So please, stay tuned for more!
