    Does anyone know where I could find one of the dropships from Starship Troopers? I am interested in building a few for my Mobile Infantry squads from the miniature wargame

    On my list, but I have not gotten to it yet, and as far as I know, none exist.

    Having bought Forgeworld models in the past, I can say the quality is worth it! They are excellently done, and yeah, hellishly expensive, with no plans to establish a distributorship in the US. (I asked). Their customer service is top-notch, too.

    This isn't a shameless plug for them, but when I find a company that lives up to my standards, I think they deserve some recognition.

    That said, I went and found paper templates for everything I wanted somewhere else.

    Because I'm cheap.

    I bet he he just about wets his pants!

    So have you ever considered making some 'nids out of paper?


    (everyone else says, "what's a 'nid?")

    I don't have any forgeworld stuff - but I have all 3 of the 'nid Armourcast models. Depending on terrain, I had tons of fun fielding my army back when I played - 72 genestealers strong :D

    Haven't ever played the tabletop version, although I've made a lot of terrain for others (under the alias "Dog Hair Terrain, if you ever see any). Played Dawn of War tho. I actually did fairly well with the Guard, as long as I could get a Baneblade going. :)

    Orks were easy to beat. Necrons fairly so. Space Marines and Eldar were tough but beatable. It was the Tau who kicked my butt. This is way off topic, but they're probably my favorite race. (I just can't stand the Gue' La Human's Xenophobic emperor worship) I think a fun army to play would be Tau with human mercs (Cadians or Elysians).

    Off topic and out of his field.

    The Bugs? Never heard 'nids before, but, live and learn...

    Nids (AKA Tyranids) are baaaaad.Like to see how an Avatar goes up against them.And I like Eldar....
    Now after fully derailing the subject.How about Starship Trooper bugs?Couple big size paper models would be great fun leaving them in unsuspecting places.

    GEtting meshes out of Dawn of War isn't hard ... I did to make a LeMan Russ and a Baneblade. The meshes need a lot of work before they can be turned into a papermodel though. There is a 3DS Max plugin that takes the model format and imports it.
