Miniatures pt34 – Xenos

Trying different manufacturers, here’s a bunch of xenomorphs from QRF miniatures sci-fi range.

The Aliens and Facehuggers were almost the same pose per pack, so I’m going to show only one of each. The Predators were more lively with a separate pose for each and nicely sculpted.

Getting them right was a challenge and I’m not 100% sure I’ve got the best result, but it’s quite close. Painting them involved a lot of tinting and washing.

Also something went wrong with the final mat varnish and it left white streaks around the base. Thankfully I only varnished around the base rim on that step, which can be easily fixed.

Considering that, maybe the problem is that not all of the rim was painted, so the varnish had nowhere to stick to, and it just run down and pooled as it couldn’t hold on to the bare plastic.
