As the title suggests my mind has slipped back to Sci Fi again strange how it does that this time of year as it was this time last year this project started off with my first purchases of Exterminators and Space Demons from Khurasan.
Well work has started again. The first 12 Alien Drones are nearly finished as is the Queen. I've started work assembling my space colony out of pots and scrap plastic bits and bobs.
I'm also doing a bit of sculpting mainly having ago at some of the creatures and tech from the movie Predators this being the Tracker Predators hounds and the Predator Falconers robotic bird/drone. The bird is the hardest as it had like 3 seconds of footage in the movie and is hard to find pics of. The one below of the bird is a fan made one and there is another with two blades on. With how individual Predators equipment is I think I can have a creative licenses with it :-D I don't recall seeing blades on it and the only footage online is this snipped you see it land on the predator on the left hand side.

The Hounds I haven't started but I've found I think a good body to start from and will need to just putty on some spines when they arrive from the guy I've bought them off in Finland. The Bird/drone is completely from scratch as I could find anything similar enough to start from there is a few pics below again WIP but its needs more filing down and detail etch into the hardened putty. The first attempts whilst the putty was a little bit cured was no good as I kept destroying bits when trying to apply pressure so I decided to make it bigger and the file it down when hard.

|Scale shot shows you how small it is.. Its supposed to mount on a predators wrist so still a bit more filing to go yet.|
|Front of the houses with Bob the Grunt to show scale.|
|Decide five was a nice number to start.|
I have some more buildings to make but I need some bigger bases to mount them on before I can start them properly.
I also hope to make a ship of some kind not a big ass mother ship but a small sort of predator shuttle/craft. Thinking of a small hunting party either carrying 3 perhaps up to maybe 12-15 hunters. I have some ideas about what to start from its not set in stone. I have two maybe three ideas for the main body of the ship but if that doesn't work then there are some GW model kits which I could also use to kit bash into ships again there are no standard Predator ships comics and movies all have massive variety between them.
