A Phagon Gallery
by Gisby

It seemed to take forever for eM-4 to release the Phagons.

But it was worth the wait.

When my pal Graham and I first saw these, we trembled, shook, and immediately got on the phone, credit cards in hand.

We were long-time Runequesters, and had collected and converted hundreds of Goat-headed Broo.

For those of you too young to remember.... A certain UK company had produced wonderful, licensed RQ Broo, but eventually dropped the license to produce 'Chaos Beastmen,' a totally original piece of goat-headed intellectual property.

Like we cared.... Broo were broo, and our forces swelled.

Eventually we started playing Science Fiction. We missed our Broo, though.

A certain company made a couple of Space 'Beastmen.' They were OK, but hard-to-get, and expensive.

But then....

One day, we got a flyer in the mail, with pictures of DOZENS of Space Broo, and they were AMAZING. 6 codes, each with 4 variants We immediately ordered the lot, x2, in convenient 20-packs.

It was only later that we noticed that 3 codes had 5 variants each. (Yes, we are THAT smart)

I spent the next 3 years searching hobby shops across the USA looking for the missing variants. (x2: Graham needed HIS too)

Eventually I found them, and picked up a bunch of others in the process. They have been longstanding villains in our game, and a terrible foe.

So I have been annoying Doug ever since the SPACELORDS appeared in eM-4's ranks. And they were worth the wait.

They've been remoulded, and kudos to eM-4's mouldmaker and choice of metal, as there was NO flash on my figures, and the detail is even better than I remember.

Just have a look.

They have detailed, vented back/jump packs, and several have additional power/fuel cells for their weapons.

A few have breather masks, often with an electronic eye/targeting aid.
