Spartan Imperial Strike Force

Finally as promised, my Spartan Imperial Strike force for ASQL 2.0! All figures are 100% GZG New Israelis apart from the remote cannon on the Warthog (the barrel broke off, so it was replaced with a Battletech tribarrel cannon). The Spartans themselves were painted using Master Chef's "300 second Spartan" technique as posted on Dropship Horizon. The figures and Warthog were based on's Alien Squad Leader plastic bases, using spackle, kitty litter, and sand. The bases were then hand-painted black, and featured a progressive drybrush of Apple Barrel Burnt Umber, Ceramcoat Territorial Beige, and a 50/50 mix of Territorial Beige and Jo-Ann's Au Naturale.

  1. You've done a great job there! Seriously a great job! Really effective too with those bases.


  2. Thank you, Mark, if not for you I probably wouldn't have attempted the project.

    Now to find these guys an opponent...

  3. I'll echo what Mark said. They look excellent.

  4. I'm new to the sci-fi miniature genre. You've captured my exact image of sci-fi gaming. Great Work.
    Those Isreali GZG are my favorite, and ASQL is a fun little game..........cheers.
