“They’re Coming Through The Walls!”

The backstory for this diorama is that a Galactic Federation base is under attack by Blacktron forces. It’s not going well for the Federation; the base has been penetrated and largely overrun, but a plucky band of Classic Spacemen have made a valiant stand in Power Room 3.

The Classic Space Fleet defenders are a bit of a ragbag of survivors: mostly soldiers (red suits), but also a pilot (white), a commander (blue), a medic (silver) and a couple of power room techs (flame orange). These last two colours are my own designations unattested in the official Classic Space universe, but I think they’re a reasonable extrapolation.

The Blacktron have broken through the walls and are beginning to bring in their shock troops, led by a Wardog mech. The Federation have a mech of their own, but it’s a smaller one: just a Tactical BUNNIE Suit (see previous post). The medic is tending one of the power room techs, who has been injured, while the commander radios desperately for backup. On the second storey, a rather agitated Federation astronaut readies a mobile laser gun.

I’m quite pleased with all the details I managed to cram in, though a little less pleased with quite how much the reactor itself hides many of these.

I hope you enjoy this model. I certainly had fun building it!
