Ikwen, PeaceKeepers, Alien Bull & Cow

Hello again All,
Thought I'd share my latest creations.
I bought Brigades PacFed Infantry to use as Peace Keepers & Loud Ninja's Ikwen t use as indigenous Aboriginal Aliens.
I decided to mount 4 of them on the PacFed Dino lizards I got & they came out great. This left me with 4 PacFed riders so I decide to scrathbuild bikes & sidecars. I like how they came out & would fit with the Peace Keeper theme. The heavies were used for the side car riders , a medic & a sniper ( rifle is made entirely from sprue. )

I made the Bull so that eventually I will have an Alien herbivore herd.

Enjoy & may you be inspired enough to start scratchbuilding.

All kinds of terrain.

Hello again All,
I thought to share pics of some of my terrain .I enjoy building terrain so I have made quite a collection along the years.
I think that using natural items is one of the most rewarding when building terrain. Anyway enjoy & if you have questions do not hesitate to ask.
I normally do terrain that can be used in various scales.
May you be inspired.
Enjoy
