A deep space freighter has been overtaken by Xenos, the Colonial Marines have to blow the reactor to destroy it before it docks.

M56 says, NO
Escape pod hatch located

Hustle it up Marines

The three survivors of the squad that went in, but they prevented the infected ship from docking, saving many lives.

I've played many games of Space Hulk they are always tense and swing both ways, its a great sytem and a fun game.  Beats me why GW doesn't still sell this game

But I don't use thier figs so I don't care.  My favourites are the Aliens/Colonial Marines.  This is my box of Reverisco Revenants, up until recently, the best stand in for 20mm Xenos I could find

Why recently? Because the same guy that made the Marines makes these beauties

3-up of 6mm Xenos, ideal for 20mm.  And the dynamism and variety of poses is super.  So I got a lot (120 of them...)

But wht about eggs?  Well Estsy to the rescue again, a seller had these markers in FDM.  Of course I had to have a set.  They are supposed to be for 28mm, but they are a bit small, so ideal for the 20mm figs.

Go ahead, make my day!


P.S. The eggs are listed as Tyranid objective markers, this seller has them: 3DSupplyDropper
