As you will have seen, our rulebooks and website include images of 54mm models made by the Russian company Tehnolog. Even though the people at Tehnolog were happy to give us permission to use their models, I personally still know very little about them. That said, I was recently able to pick up a set of their figures that I hadn't previously seen available - this bunch:
|Tehnolog's "Sci Fi Indians"|
|The Chief - front and back|
This man means business. One of the coolest details about him is the thing on his back with the little hose connected to the gun on his belt. I reckon this has to be some sort of stolen alien technology, meaning he was tough enough to go and get it in the first place! In my book he's a commander who's useful at long range and up close. And I reckon that gizmo on his back maybe projects some sort of disruption field that makes him hard to hit and/or provides some impressive armour.

Honestly, I love these guys. The arrowless archer annoys me, but the rest more than make up for it. You could field an all-native team or mix these in with other humans to form a cool ragtag bunch. I paid US$10 including shipping for these and I am very pleased with them for that price. They have that chunky look to them that may not be to everyone's tastes but I quite like it. Painted pics and maybe even a battle report to follow.
