January 2019 New Release: Homeguard (Otter) reinforcement pack.



 Pack contains 3 x EDF Light Infantry armed with LAKW 1-56 Assault Rifles and mix of Otter heads (beret / bare headed)

In Albedo the Home Guard covers a wide range of troop types from untried militia through to elite special forces units. The term Home Guard signifies that the unit is part of the defense forces of the particular planet rather than part of the Extra Planetary Defense Force (EDF) who are off world reinforcements / advisors. Both male and female critters can be found serving within a planet's Home Guard. Home-guard troops are less well armored than EDF forces. The figures in our Home-guard packs contain a random assortment of male and female poses wearing light armor and home-guard berets.

Glad you like the vehicles.
We've just added crew sets, an alternative turret and vehicle stowage sets.
As these are now available we have up-moddeled our example models to include these as well as markings and weathering.
Ann has even made a quick 20 second video for each vehicle.
Check them out @ www.acp164.com

On my workbench 29th April 2019

Over the weekend I have been assembling some Police / Internal Security troops armed with riot shields and batons and a shotgun



The megaphone is an arm swap with a protestor. I know that I should not really say this about our own figures, but they do make me smile every time I sit down to assemble a batch as there is so much versatility with the separate arms, heads & tails.



These are scheduled as a May release, we've not got production casts through yet, these are pre-production proofs.



The question is what color to paint police uniforms in Albedo? The same colors as the military? Blue? Black? Grey? Let me know what you think. as I want to get a squad painted up to photograph to go in the books.

Loving these sculpts.
Having seen the larger pics here (after the Facebook post) I'm definitely convinced that military style colours would be completely wrong. Police force colours should be distinct and represent a peacekeeper outlook. Mid blue and white or possibly something based on the beige/brown of US sheriffs. Accented with a bright highlight colour for visibility.
