First is the troops of the Freehold of Tyria, a small force defending their home system.
Mostly made up of an all-volunteer militia, the day to day policing and peacekeeping are handled by the Tyrian System Defence Force.

Some troopers, with a designated marksman in the middle.
The standard grunt, the backbone of the proud defenders.
Tyria does have a professional military force as well, the Tyrian Aerospace Marine Corp. Known to most of the militia and civilians as "the regulars", the AMC is usually called on when things heat up beyond the scope of the militias duty.

The regular troopers and specialists.
I also finished up a few pieces of terrain. I have been toying around with some stuff that was lying around, and remembering a post I read earlier (sorry, can't remember where) I decided to try my hand at something I've seen a few enterprising terrain makers do:
Alien vegetation, made out of drinking straws. I think they are quite passable, not the greatest trash-bash, but it came out better than expected!
They were all made in the same fashion; the straws were shaped using an ordinary candle to heat up the plastic to make it warp, then I cut them into pieces that looked interesting to me. Finally I hot-glued them to some old mongoose Mighty Armies bases I had lying around, before painting them.
I hope to be able to post some more terrain pieces I'm working on, as well as some finished fantasy models in the not too distant future. There might even be some tiny-scale stuff showing up soon.. provided I can focus on one project for long enough to have something to show, that is!
Hope you've liked it!
