Phagon Battle Clones

Nothing much to add: It’s a bunch of Phagon Battle Clones from Moonraker Miniatures. I’m a big fan of the range (and the Phagons themselves.) They are a joy to paint, and paint up so very well.

I’m using them as proxies for Chigg troops from ‘Space: Above and Beyond.’ They don’t really look a lot like the Chiggs except for being aliens in armour, but they look good, and that’s more important.

The bodies are dark gunmetal, washed with black, and lightly highlighted with steel. The bronze weapons and copper trim make them quite dazzling in daylight, I wish the photos showed it better.

Their eyes are painted gold, with a translucent layer of red over them: I was hoping for an amazing effect, or depth, but it just looks red.

Like the Chiggs, they have troopers with heavy blades instead of bayonets. Very cool.
