Part 1: Mounted Troops
These 28mm models originally came from the now-defunct i-Kore and were made for their "Void" game. I was never much interested in the Void rules, though I liked the models and collected a large number of them. Most are still unpainted, of course, but here are some of the completed ones. I've used some of them in a game of FUBAR occasionally; otherwise they just sit in boxes on the shelf. That's not really fair, so occasionally they get taken out to be shown to people. Now it's your chance...
According to the Void fluff, the Viridians are medium/high-tech militant ecologists. As such, they mostly use dinosaur-like creatures instead of (pollution-producing) vehicles. I can't quite bring myself to believe that such a force would be militarily effective under most circumstances; I don't think there's the remotest chance that any animal, even if genetically engineered, would ever come close to a wheeled or tracked vehicle for speed, protection or load-carrying capacity. However, perhaps they come from a planet that has extremely difficult terrain - so bad that vehicles are at a significant disadvantage. Anyway, they look cool...

ConclusionSo there you have it. A bunch of fervent sci-fi ecologists mounted on various dinosaur-like creatures. At least, the ones I have painted so far. I also have a number of other behemoths, terrasaurs and some flying critters still to paint, if I ever get the time.
The Viridians have many plain foot soldiers too; I'll post the ones I've done so far in Part 2 (some time).
Incidentally, the miniatures (including these ones) and the rules for Void 1.1 are still available from Scotia Grendel. i-Kore morphed into Urban Mammoth, who produce a follow-on set of rules and miniatures called Urban War.
