Vasquez - Stay Frosty

So I think i've finished my favorite piece to date.  This piece as you can tell is Aliens Movie inspired and i'm calling the figure herself "Vasquez".  This miniature has not been released to the public yet as it's for an unreleased game called Sulphur. I'm not sure when the game is coming out but if all the miniatures for it are this awesome it's going to be one worth waiting for. 
The alien eggs are from the old 1988 54mm range from AEF Designs now out of print.  I happened across a set on Ebay and picked them up for fairly cheep.  Of course I had my boyfriend make a mold of them so I could have as many as I needed.  It felt wrong to use the originals for some reason. 
The base you should recognize from a few posts ago (Here) and it's come a long way since then.  I enjoyed playing with the colors on the alien portion of the base. I actually ended up using a piece of lichen as a texture pad and built up a lot of colors in it that way.  Of course there are a bunch of different color washes on it as well.  I wanted to make sure it didn't blend into the military green background of the rest of the base.  Any questions please leave a comment.  Now onto the pictures!


  1. I think you've done a great job capturing the atmosphere of LV426 and her attitude. Love the alien growth. Looking forward to seeing Prometheus at the movies too!

  2. As always, fantastic work. I can't decide which part I like best, the amazing figure or the incredible basing behind it.
