While in standard orbit around Trident Telsee IV awaiting to rendezvous with the U.S.S Parramatta for resupply. The Captain of the U.S.S Vampire orders a small six man away team to head down to the planet to for some routine surveys of the fauna on the planet.
After beaming down the team separate and start doing their surveys and not worried about the primative indigenous tribes that inhabit the planet as they have never cuased any problems in earlier visits to the planet.
Head Botanist Lieutenant Mike McDonald and Head of Security Lieutenant Jake Peterson after about an hour of seperating from the rest of the group get ambushed by the local primative tribes that inhabit the planet. McDonald is pierced in the back by a spear and dies instantly and Peterson drops to the ground and starts to open fire and while this is all going on he can't belive that they got AMBUSHED.
Figures - The figures and equipment are a mixer of TOS/DS9 Trails and Tribulations/Enterprise from Artasylum/Diamond Select series which was made a few years ago. The figures joints were superglued together and then puttied and let dry for a few hours.
Once the putty and glue had dried the uniforms (top & pants) were done by using tissue paper, I cut out the tissue paper and then used watered down PVA glue and attached it to the base figure and once the tissue paper dries it's actually very rigid.
The equipment as mentioned above is also from Artasylum/Diamond Select TOS series, the communicator's flip top section were cut and glue in place to simulate a closed communicator. The Tricorder is straight out of the package and was repainted, both the figures and equipment were painted and weathered using Vallejo, GW and artist paints.
Base - are two old picture frames I had in the cupboard glued and secured together, the ground work was built up using plaster of paris and fine washed river sand. The dirt is a mixer of smashed up kitty litter and dirt from a pot plant I keep outside, the grass is model railway grass which was atatched then painted.
The small tuft of grass are from Army Painter Modelling Supplies and they come ona sticky clear sheet and you just pull the tufts off and glue inplace. The larger plants are plastic which I picked up from the local pet shop and the spears are just skewer sticks cut to size and painted.
