Here's some pics of my Planet 28 standees that I've been working on over the last few days.
I've been finding myself wanting to play lots of different forces and instead of spending ages collecting all the stuff and painting it, I've settled on making some standees so I can get some games in!
Unlike my other Planet 28 standees, I've made these guys double sided which really makes for a more effective style than the single sided ones I've used previously and its been a really fun experience to make lots of little warbands too.
While this isn't as satisfying as an actual miniature collection, it is making it more cost effective than me going and buying stuff and hoping to eventually get around to painting them and as the gaming budget is pretty much non existent, its keeping me entertained and allowing me to enjoy some much needed hobby time.
Thus far, I've settled on some PDF troops and vehicle crews who will be taking part in my Hathor campaign once I get chance to restart it.
I'm also thinking of making some Orky standees to allow me to add some old school style Boyz to menace my adventurers and to allow me to play some 2nd edition 40k on the cheap and if all goes well, I'll eventually have some figures for each of the classic 40k factions.
I'm not sure how I'll go around making vehicles but I'll keep experimenting with the 2d style to see what works and what doesn't.
I've made these approximately 35mm scale so if folks want to print out their own, they'll need to resize them slightly to 28mm scale.
I'm really pleased with how my female pilot trio turned out and suspect they'll be making quite a few appearances in the campaign, possibly getting some naval troops to back them up too.
We shall see if I can't get a game or two in over the course of the week and see how the standees work out in practice as I'm champing at the bit to get some gaming now that I've got a quick and easy way of adding together forces!
If folks would like to see any particular characters or forces, give me a shout and I'll see what I can come up with.
