Terrain is TSS terrain blocks from the collection of Paul Lymath. Buildings are entirely scratchbuilt from assorted plastic sheet and kit parts, mostly by Tony Francis with some help from Phil Richards and Dave Shillito. Spaceship built by Phil from two submarine kits. Vehicles are almost all conversions of 1/76th Matchbox kits or 1/87th Roco Minitanks, all built and painted by Tony. Eagle landing craft are Imai kits painted and converted by Dave. Figures are mostly 15mm TTG Laserburn (now sold by Tabletop Miniatures) with some Citadel and other assorted manufacturers, all painted by Tony.
