Not, of course, the predator that has served the Emporer for 10 millenia. I mean the Predator :skull: that has stalked commando teams, urban combat specs, gangers, thugs, superheroes, and lethal aliens throughout the wonderful fiction universe of the scifi community.

Does anyone know if miniatures are available? I would collect it just for those (aliens would be cool too). Of course I am talking about 18 mm not Inquisitor sized models although info on that would be much appreciated as well. I have gone through the web searching for something like it but the various avenues leave one with little idea of where to begin.

Thanks all for any help.

Hmmm, Predator miniatures? I don't think there's even a Pred game out there, much less mini's. Nice avatar, btw ;)

Copplestone Castings Alien Hunters line works better IMHO than the Kra'vak

I haven't personally seen any Preds, but there were some attrocious minis for the game which accompanied the film Aliens. From memory, they were the main character Colonial Marines, an APC and some aliens.

You might find them on Ebay (though you may wish you hadn't).

Were those the models by Leading Edge, released around 1993?

Could be, the year seems roughly correct. I can remember that they came in long black cases if that helps... :confused:

Eureka Miniatures used to produce a set of "Intergalactic Bounty Hunter" models that look startling like the Predator, complete with Glaives, Shoulder Cannons, Masks, Claws, Armour and Dredlocks. They were, IMHO, superior to cobblestone casting's version.

I think they disappeared though, or stopped making them. :(

Re-posable? Are they wargaming models, or action figures? :wtf:

Look good though.

This catalogue has 3 Alien Bounty Hunters that are very relevant. Any links to piccies of them as the Ground Zero Games give VERY little info.

Close? It IS a predator :p lol
Just not named as one for IP Rights just like the Hunter Aliens or the Alien Bounty Hunter miniatures out there ;)

And yeah it's gorgeous. Limited series (1000) and other variants are planned to pop up... eventually.
comes with accessories too btw.
