Space Marauders Platoon

 My Space Marauders warbands have grown into a platoon.

In the end I couldn't stop adding other characters either.
I have two full 10 men squads as posted before and two command groups of leaders with alien and android bodyguards. The second of which is still to be painted.
I included a Guyver from Em4 Miniatures and a Rogue Stars/Stargrave assassin.
I thought the old Chaos Marine had the right biomech look to join this band of pirate raiders.

The second command group will include a queen. I'm experimenting with different heads but I'm not convinced yet. 
I tried a new Dark Eldar helmet but it doesn't work. Ideally it would be a human head for a more 1970's Anime feel. Maybe Frostgrave or Stargrave plastics.

They'll be allied with the squad of Night Lords renegade marines.

I'd like to build airships like in Miyazaki's Laputa, Steampunk aeronefs, Starwars Skiffs. floating safari boats like in Jack Vance's Tschai. Thinks like that. Manga meets Space Romance

Thanks! I'm really enjoying going beyond the GW fluff and pursueing this weird pseudo-manga direction. :D
