The Ion Age is continuing to grow in infamy (I like that word more than fame, it suits the world just now rather well) and today I saw my first ‘conversion’ of our miniatures. Above you can see some Shia Khan Pioneers in 15mm scale turned into Galafraxian Black Guards. Yes those are eye stocks!
This made me smile among what is now a truly awesome amount of work which I must carry out. I try not to let customers down and as such I answer every email sent to me and I try to make things run smoothly all the time. I will be working on Patrol Angis full time as of this week along with an overhaul of the Alternative Armies website. That will keep me from posting overly much. I have signed up to follow Allison M the chap who created these images and made the conversions.
The quasi-humanoid, photosynthetic Garafraxians (colloquially called “Chloros”) use heavy armour to protect their fragile bodies during combat. Their long eye stalks give them excellent depth perception and peripheral vision however, so they generally extend them out of their suits except when in immediate danger. The suits are lined with red-LED arrays to maintain their metabolism far away from their home star’s nourishing rays.
