I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but this seemed the most logical.

I'm looking for generic sci-fi minis of the 50s B-movie style - Space Rangers, killer plants, Martians with ray guns, Planets of the Amazon Women, you know the sort of thing - to use for a skirmish game I'm writing as a sort of celebration of that genre. I've been searching and I've found a few, but if anyone's got some links, that would help a great deal. Anything that might be useful in a setting like that would be great, since I'd like to have potential miniatures in mind while I'm coming up with creatures to put into the rules. Thanks in advance, hopefully...

Eureka minatures (http://eurekamin.com.au/index.php?cPath=87_126)is a decent place to start.

Cool, thanks, those Martians will be handy in particular. I wish there were pics of the X-Files-inspired ones though, I don't want to buy miniatures blind...

Any other suggestions? I want to keep the human models in the sort of Flash Gordon/Captain Video mould, with perhaps some Barbarella and/or anime thrown in as a different faction, but as far as aliens and creatures go, anything from all sci-fi ever is great. This is going to be like a cheesy sci-fi royal rumble, with 50s Martians and 90s little grey aliens. Fighting each other. Either it'll be rubbish, or reality will implode.
