I'll definitely be doing some sort of alien camo spec involving bright colors at some point, hopefully with a new set of Wargames Factory Powered Armor Troopers before I shed my mortal coils... :lol:

Does my heart good to see the old AH cover again. My first ever wargame, as I've mentioned before. I had it before I'd even read the book ;)
