The background behind this range is that Lead Adventure wanted to put together a range of civilians and non-combatants that you could use to build up a wonderfully rich Sci-Fi world. I think they’ve succeeded.
The idea is that the Human Race fled from an Alien invasion on massive ships which were effectively floating cities. Packed to bursting with people Astropolis is one such ship which was filled with all manner of people from society.
Now the ship floats through space looking for dockyards to repair and take on supplies while within its bowels the crew works tirelessly to keep it all ticking over.
Lead Adventure has taken their trademark style of miniature, which has this cartoony nature to it, to space and given us an amazing looking collection of characters who already are coming to life, even at this early stage.
The actual range of figures is quite vast but I’ve picked out some of my favourites here. They have even included a few Aliens into the mix too, the Krogloggs.
One thing I love about this range is that it leaves more questions than answers on the table. What is life really like onboard Astropolis and where are all the soldiers?
Igor, the sculptor behind this range, specifically wanted to stay away from big super-human warriors and instead look at what regular humans would be like in the future.
What do you think?
