The Biomorph Crew. The Captain is a Dachshund Mystic (front row), and the First Mate is the Biomorph bear in the back.

Northstar torsos with Sally 4th metal heads. Both the cat medic and dachshund mystic are made from FG Wizards 2, and FG Wizards 1 respectively.

Used Ghost Archipelago Crew torsos and knives with stargrave arms for these crew members.

I bought the Rogue Star Renegade blister since at the time the Northstar metal psionic had not been unlocked. Here's a comparison shot. The RS psionic on the right is smaller than the RS rogue (left), and the SG psionic.


There are three more pictures in my gallery, two with the Sally 4th critter heads. And they are the same poor quality, but perhaps still enough to let people judge if they want to buy Sally 4th critter conversion kits. [BTW, each head comes with a tail, but I did not use any. Mainly because I did not want to drill holes for the tails.]

Hey ya'll!
I've kind of been living under a rock.

What is stargrave? Seen a lot of noise about it.
Is stargrave basically a stand alone game system a bit like warriors of erewhon?

It’s frost grave in space. You get a crew of 10 guys and you have to nick stuff and shoot at the other team.

In case you've not played Frostgrave, the fantasy predecessor to Stargrave, Stargrave is a minis agnostic skirmish game. There are official minis, including 3 plastic box sets of PYO [pose your own] figures. The new plastics are compatible with the older Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago plastics. You can play one-off games but the fun in both systems is a campaign. In Frostgrave, only the Wizard gained Exp, and the Apprentice was basically an inferior copy of the Wizard. In Stargrave, you choose a Captain and First Mate; they can have the same Speciality, or different ones, and they each can gain experience. The Captain rolls to activate Powers normally, and the First Mate at a penalty. (It's a bit more detailed than that, but that will do for now.)
For example, my Biomorph Crew posted above has a Mystic Captain (basically Jedi or Sith, depending on the powers taken), and a Biomorph First Mate (has body modification powers). There are other backgrounds, such as Rogue for the Han Solo types, or Cyborgs, or Roboticists (if you want to run a crew of Cylon Centurions or Daleks). Don't know if anyone has actually played yet, as the Nickstarter ended 9th April, and Northstar and their US partner have been packing and shipping. I've been assembling figures myself.

Oh yes, there is a free solo supplement available for Stargrave at Osprey Publishing.

Lots of battle reports online and people discussing rules (in the thread right near this) and tactics. So I’m assuming there’s a few games going.

But anyway, the above sums the game up pretty well.
Use the models you’ve got, mash together from any systems and nice mini companies or buy their stuff. It’s all good with semi generic crew building rules (found below).

WIP of my crew, or possibly they are random encounters... who can say at this point



Using these guys and girls (some of them may be girls) to test out contrast paints as well. So far not too taken, and prefer the effect of washes. The light blue one works really nicely though. I’m sure to use more of that as light blue appears to be my favourite colour based on recent evidence

Some bright clothing needs to be added to
Everyone basically. The little kobold is going to get a jacket she is very proud of

Free file off Thingiverse that I printed. Well, I printed all of the models in the pic, but a mixture of files I have bought and from various free sources. The robot thingy was free.

It will be months before I get this stuff finished off so rather than wait I'll just share them now. Save for one random GW squat in there, all are 3d prints from Anvil Industries.

Going through my mixed models draw.
I think I can make use of all this!

Either a crew, the guns, pirates or somewhere in between.
There certainly looks to be a few useful bits.

I'm not sure yet. I'm really just building stuff and having fun. I'll work out the details later.

My latest recruits are Eisenkern from Wargames Atlantic with heads from Star Wars Miniatures models from the mid 2000s.

Teehee. That sounds familiar. One of the benefits of the weapon choices being super generic. You can just build stuff and it will be useful at some point

@Hamster-Wow, those otter heads are a good size. I might need to get those for some of the Einherjars I still have.

Those photos have been most enlightening.

Here is my Tekker crew with Biomorph first mate. Played one game with them so far and they came out OK. Going to play again Saturday. Have had a lot of fun already with this game just going through old minis and painting new ones.

Great mix of guys and gals in there - I am really liking the variety that people are going for. I am going to have a root around and really try and get the models that don't see a 'run out' in 40k

Thanks all for the inspiration!!

Thanks guys. The second guy is from the Star Smugglers add on for Gridwars, linked below.

The OSL could be better, but I am definitely in “good enough” mode to get through my backlog

They are really nice generic models for a range of sci fi tropes.

Rogue Star Rogue, Dashchund Mystic, Dog Runner, Space 1999 Commander (Recruit), Star Trek TOS Science Officer (Hacker). [Animal heads from Sally 4th] Took some liberties with the Space 1999 Commander, as the boots and belt should have been ivory/off white as well, but while that worked for the TV show, it made the figure look unfinished. As for the Star Trek TOS Science Officer, I used a Mercs head, as I thought it looked like Mark Lenard in the TOS episode "Balance of Terror".

More Sally 4th Conversions. Now that I've assembled a sample of each type of head I bought, I retract my earlier statement of them being too small. The Angry Cat and Otter heads are on the small side, but not so much to make them unsuitable.
Cat Recruit, Cat Medic (FG Wizards 2 torso), and NS Metal Medic

The Angry Cat head (Official name from Sally 4th Webstore) on the right is smaller

Thanks for the heads-up, Flinty.

A side note. It seems like the rabbits would be uncomfortable with those tight helmet liners. Ears bend to some extent, but to have them folded for a long flight does not seem best for crew efficiency and comfort.

Astonished of Heck

Since I've been painting Battletech Miniatures of late, and I haven't had a chance to peruse the Stargrave book, I wonder how well Battlemechs would fit in as either remotes, robotic units, cyborgs, or exotic battle armor.

Thoughts?

Are you a Wolf, a Sheep, or a Hound?

Go for it. This is old-school gaming, where YOU choose what figures you field, not what a Greedy Corporation wants you to use marked up 200% from last quarter.
