QRF Deep Space Colonists

I'll just say that the quality of this old set is not up to more recent competitors' efforts.

I like the concept of the mother and baby, and the not-Ripley/ Newt is the reason I got this set. The baseball bat figures are going to be useful for civilians in a variety of games.

These figures make good zombies... In hindsight, I think that one of them has a chestburster in flagrante. The other one's right arm was just about falling off at the elbow, which is a bizarre moulding failure given the position.

The set also came with six facehuggers; I gave them a very pale green colour to make them stand out more from the sandy basing. I based them on 15mm washers (I usually use 20mm). Here they are with Khurasan Space Demons and an Exterminator.

Check out my other colonists!


  1. I'll have to get them especially for the facehuggers!

  2. Sweet! Civilians make the outerrim go round and around!

  3. Thanks guys!

    I like to think of civilians as the grease in the fascist imperialist warmachine.

  4. Very nice painting. I agree with your comments about the detailing, but from a gaming point of view they're worth picking up just for the mother-and-baby and Rip-and-Newt combinations.

    1. And the facehuggers. I mean, you only need one of these sets, so I could put up with the quality. But even so, to have to relegate two figures as zombies because they're that poor...
