Described by CP Models as Big Eyed Aliens – which they certainly are – but I’m sure I’ve seen their likes before but can’t quite put my finger on it…
Popular TV aside, these fellas were an impulse buy when shopping at CP Models a while back. I thought, “Okay, they’re 28mm but with monsters and aliens of this ilk, who’s to say they are out of scale with 15mm fellows?” At £6 for all four in the set, well… I couldn’t resist.
If you like painting flesh/skin tones then these are fun. I tried to give them unique head ‘patterns’ which works in the flesh but not so clear in the photos. One of the pics shows them with a Clear Horizon HADES team member. If I were him, I’d not be looking so cool. (More on those particular chaps soon.)

In a similar vein to my last post, these fellas are also by PF. Quite obvious by the detailing and style. They are from two different packs available from CP Models – SB1501 Assault bots (one of four shown, centre of first pic) and SB1502 Alien bot (one per pack – I bought two and with a bit of chopping got two pretty good poses).
If the colour scheme doesn’t give it away, I see them as a law enforcement trio, with the SB1501 being the lead officer (or should that be command droid?)
PF (I don’t know if he’d want me to share his full name) is an extremely talented miniature sculptor from France who has done work for quite a range manufacturers. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m a big fan. There is a lot to like about his style, both aesthetically and technically.
The left and right miniatures are from Brigade Models “Alien Bounty Hunters” pack and the centre guy is from CP Models “Robots” pack.
I’ve still a lot of PF miniatures to paint up but here are links to a few already done.
I think you’ll agree that you can see a distinct theme in his style which is perfect for my vision of Space Opera or even Infinity in 15mm…
