 Couple of weeks ago I had the crazy idea of making another human faction for any Alien based games and thought about the UPP. They are detailed in the RPG as basically space communists who have a bit of a cold war going on with the Americas. The colonial marine guide details the unions forces and some if the vehicles.

These five will be the space Operating Force who I'm basing off the art work above. These will be the unions special forces while everyone else are the peoples army.

After a little break I’m back constructing my colony. First I’ve made some boards for section sf the second floor to sit on. These will test in the ground floor. I’ve also started work on the exterior using some recycled gaming boards. I’ve made the support plinths for holding up the structure

Had all sorts of problems figuring out the lay out as the elevator and stairwell needs to match what I have planned for the ground floor. Morgue and med tech office now opposite the med lab so this section of level 2 is complete. I'll start level one in the new year. In the meantime I'll work a bit more on the exterior.Had all sorts of problems figuring out the lay out as the elevator and stairwell needs to match what I have planned for the ground floor.
