You have to email him to get prices. You could ask then ;)

Mongoose Publishing has released the first Kleggs for their Judge Dredd game. An entire squad has been tentatively promised sometime down the line. For those who don't know, Kleggs are a race of lagre carnivorous reptilian aliens who like to hire as mercenaries and take payment in meat (including but not limited to corpses of their fallen enemies):

It looks like Defiance Games is almost ready to actually sell something to someone:
http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=249945

Their first batch, now availabe fro preorder (not strictly for purchase as the news item text claims) is a fairly predictable if reasonably affordable set of Space Marines (the Aliens kind, not the Ultramarines kind), but they are promising Bugs and even "intelligent aliens" soon - as well as numerous human factions, including some less well covered ones like the Chinese.

BTW is the cease and desist (based on the use of the word "Defiance" in a context that may confuse customers) from MJ12 already in the mail? :mrgreen:

More big bad alien lizardmen, this time from Studio Miniatures:

They recently picked up the Atlantis Imperium line of minis (formerly on Apocalypse Miniatures), from which this first (and reportedly previously unreleased) batch comes from. I have no idea what else they have in store, other than the Ancient Greece -influenced "Spartans in Spaaaaace!" that I remember from AM days:

SM has stated all AI sets will be released in this "battlesquad" format which is pretty good for D:VG purposes.

ETA: some new Goloths are out now - Command models and a support weapon.

And yet more space lizardmen! Namely, I (and everybody else) seem to have neclegted to mention the Karack zar by The Baggagetrain. Nothing too inspired IMHO but they don't look half bad when nicely painted:

Predators from the Predator movies are an ever-popular subject for the lack of global IP control. For those who are willing to condone such practices to get some alien minis, here's the latest and perhaps most blatant effort, this time from Switzerland:

They are expensive limited edition resins and since the company is Swiss you'll pay postage through the nose too, but at least they are rather nice and well animated sculpts.
