Grey Aliens sixteen new 15mm poses released

 We are delighted to now double the size of the Grey Alien forces in the HOF Range with these brand new releases.  Going from the original three packs and a flying saucer we have sixteen new poses of soldiers, abductors and overlords for your games.  Our thanks to veteran wargamer Fred Richards for his contributions to the new Greys.  Go HERE for the range or read on for more.

Grey Aliens are an enigmatic race of small, bulbous-headed, and highly intelligent aliens, the Greys are primarily scientists rather than soldiers, but sometimes come into conflict with other races when competing for resources, or when seeking to establish possession of a particular site for temporary and mysterious purposes. Their unauthorised experimental activities on live subjects who have usually been abducted can also provoke a hostile military response from races who have been subjected to such intrusions. Indeed, the Greys appear to regard the rest of the universe like their own enormous laboratory. More warlike races despise Grey reluctance to cause casualties, a sign of weakness, but the Greys have been reluctantly forced to train combat teams and actual soldiers as their ability to evade detection is declining. A Grey stands at approximately four feet in height and has light grey skin with black almond eyes and favours uniform suits of a silver and blue colour.

Each of the new packs can be had as a pack or as singles in any amount by choices on the page. Go HERE for the HOF Range.

  1. what no Grey with an anal probing device? Their representative must be in uproar over the exclusion of their prime terror weapon. Good figures, will have to look into getting some in future.

    1. Not in this lot but check out HOF47-50 there is one there which would work for that. Thanks for the kind words.
