Khurasan’s Little Green Imperialist Warriors

Little green men.  The staple of 50′s Sci-Fi.  I was browsing Khurasan’s 15mm Sci-Fi pages when I happened across them, and I knew right away they’d be fun to paint.  I think that’s an important quality in miniatures – fun to paint.  The order I placed at Khurasan that day was all “fun to paint” minis.  Nothing for my armies, nothing I even had an intended use for, but just stuff that would be fun.  Fleeing scientists, women with big (ahem) guns, aliens, predators, hill people.  Fun stuff.

Cleaned up and ready for primer.  They were pretty clean already, it only took a few minutes to clean the minor flash and mold lines.  Khurasan is pretty good about that stuff.

Painted and based.  If you look close, you can see their tiny little faces are actually way down at the bottom of their giant heads.

I decided to go with a “Martian soil” look for the base.

Is it weird that I think their little alien butts are kinda cute?

Yeah, that’s weird.  Forget I said anything.

So, I’m painting then, and I’m thinking “why am I so sloppy with these details?” Then I realize, these guys are tiny.

Here’s a size comparison with a GZG power armor and a Rebel Mini’s Earth Force Marine.

I had fun painting these guys.  I know they are mean little bastards that would shoot me on sight, but they are just so darned cute, with their little blue suits and white shoes.  Like little kids paying sailor.

 

Ok, maybe I’m reading too much into this.  :)
