To that end I have used confederate colours from Foundry to paint them.
I have noticed that Gripping Beast (woodbine company) do a range of Colonial marines and It looks like they may be sculpted by the same guy. The rifles are exactly the same, which is a real bonus for collecting a larger range. They are however true 28mm so they may be a little larger than this lot, however with it being the future they could be genetically altered or something, you know the score. They are armoured so already I have a few ideas about the Iron brigade.
I ordered these 25mm colonial marines from 1st corps last year. I thought they were 15mm so was quite surprised when they turned up, however my motto of never get rid of anything really helped out this time. I’ve been rereading the classic 25mm sci fi game Star grunt 2 and thought it would be great to create a platoon. These 1st corps figures are really quite nice and go with the Star grunt very nicely. The figures are a nice blend of Starship troopers and Colonial marines from Aliens.
