More 40K Miniatures for Spectrum Shock (Stats Coming Soon)

I have become a huge fan of using Warhammer 40K miniatures for my Spectrum Shock campaign, so much so that I would like to find a use for every single one that my group purchases. To be honest, though, it's not just that they are awesome miniatures. They are also insanely expensive, especially if you add in the amount of cash I've blown on painting supplies... and I don't even want to think about the whole "time is money" theory and all the time I've spent assembling and painting. Getting a two-for-one makes me feel a little better about spending the money, though. After all, if I get to use each miniature for our D20 Modern campaign and I get to march it across the battlefield in a real game of Warhammer 40K, it actually begins to feel like money well spent.

What's even cooler than assembling and painting these guys? Coming up with D20 Future stats to use with them! Right now, I've used (or plan to use within the next session or two) the following Warhammer 40K models in the campaign:
  • Imperial Guard Catachan Jungle Fighters (PCs)
  • Space Marine Tactical Squad (Washington DC troops)
  • Eldar Guardians (Boston troops)
  • Ork Boyz (ork grunts)
  • Ork Nobz (ork lieutenant)
  • Ork Warboss (ork leader)
Over the next week or so, I intend to repost my previous work on Washington DC, Boston, and the supermutant orks with stats for a few common NPCs and pics of at least semi-painted figures for each faction. I also have a few more NPC spotlights in the works, so I might dub next week "NPC Week" here at Outsyder Gaming. We'll see how much work I get accomplished over the weekend.

As far as which armies we'll be fielding, I've decided to stick with the Eldar, Matt is going to go with Space Marines, and Eric keeps changing his mind between Tau and Necrons. If he goes with the Necrons, I know what I'll want to work on next... a skeleton-themed faction for Spectrum Shock. I wonder if anyone has ever thought of painting Necron models as Rifts skelebots? Now that would be a cool-looking army! Hmmmm...
