Federation Force Troopers (Dark Dream studios)

The only thing I´ve found that comes close to a review of this lot is at Toy Soldier HQ (scroll down), PSR haven´t covered them...yet :-D
A big thankyou to Alex for sending me these weird and wonderfull bods :-D 
I´ve also got the machines but so far have only managed to work out how one of them fits together. If anyone knows where I can find the build instructions, especially for the Imperial Force Cyborg Destroyer "Long Shadow" I´d be very gratefull.
Rifle group
Heavy weapons. From left to right, MG, some sort of ray gun, missile launcher, grenade launcher
The whole team in the ruins of @°§*'! (sorry, the alien for this place doesn´t translate) backed up with my scratch built A.P.U

Hello to Sasha (Zed1) from Zed´s Napoleonics blog Sasha is into Napoleonics...and a great job he does of them...some of his conversions are inspirational...he even paints their eyes!!!
Hello to Haarken from Martians & and Machine Guns blog .Colonial & Science Fiction Wargaming in the Victorian Age, very HG Wells, his Martian Tripods are lovely.
Hello to Smillie from Painting Diary Blog. A great painter with a sense of humour...his lateset post about PVA gold is well worth a read...I agree entirely with it..
Hello to Andrew. I´ve found you on Google + but no blog??


  1. That's a good-looking group and a very distinctive design - I like the mood a lot. I say we need more place names that don't translate.

  2. Great painted figures Paul! I like them, and I hope you can find the built instructions.


  3. All we need now from your talented brush are some agreeable alien scum to vapourise!!!! :-D

  4. Paul
    Nice figures. I have them too.
    You got a message at the ATF forum...
    Best Wishes

  5. Very neat, always had a soft spot for Scifi.

  6. Great figs and love the thematic backdrop - very nice!

    BTW that name does translate, you just need 3 tongues and a set of mandibles to say it right!

  7. I love space troopers! These would go great with my space freighter and pig crews. Love the APU.

  8. Very nice! The A.P.U is pure groove.

  9. A bit of a departure from the medieval stuff but I can see why you were drawn to them, lovely work

  10. Thanks chaps :-D
    Special thanks to anonymous (Patrik) for the plans :-D
