Caption: Sgt. Sax, Cpl. Kidd & Tpr. Jack kicking some alien ass!
The image is crap because it's from my iPhone, but I wanted to share with folks how we rock our alien encouners. The guy playing Tpr. Jack (the minifig in black) used grenades so much that he ended up making a bandoleer for the fig with a little rubber band.
So, those aliens (from a box of D&D minis booster pack) are how I'm looking to deploy threat tokens in individual encounters. No bearing on the fiction, just more fun for the players to remove from the board.
