Really liking my Nickstarter. I only got the crew but will have to come back for the rest.

Thanks for the review, Kid_Kyoto. I would say that the kit really comes into its own when combined with others in the range (for Stargrave) as well as with FG and other sci-fi kits. This deals with the weapon options, as well as greater gubbins for panniers, grenades etc.

Thanks for sharing

I limited myself to one kit in a desperate effort to keep the backlog under control, but I'm sure I'll be back for more

I'll definitely be getting a set of male and female crew when they make it to the shops over here. Scientists and Engineers are essential for all Sci Fi RPGs!

I made my first foray into Stargrave over the past week:




Being from the SG Crew sprue, I decided to draw inspiration from Star Trek: TOS. The blue-grey tunics are for science, red/orange are security, and mustard yellow is for command. The models themselves are pretty chunky, and come with the same 2.5D issues that all ~grave models have (crisp and clean on the front and back, but indistinct details on the sides, a consequence of two-part molds). I went with the Crew box because I wanted to build specialists rather than dudes with guns (I have lot of those already). Sadly, there are only three arms not holding some sort of weapon.

That one was pretty much mandatory once I decided to go the ST-route.

Since you only bought a Crew box, it's unlikely you've seen the Mercenary head in question, but of the various heads included in that kit, that one head had v-shaped eyebrows instead of straight eyebrows, and I think it looks like Mark Lenard in "Balance of Terror". So I made a Commander Mark Lenard science officer with that head and a Crew body. Also, according to Memory Alpha, if Leonard Nimoy had not renewed his contract, they were going to cast Mark Lenard as his replacement.

I was torn during the Nickstarter. I wanted one of each box, but already have more than enough models. I was hoping to trade sprues with someone else in Japan, but it seems like I'm the only one here who backed the project.

That's unfortunate. Since a friend was backing for all the kits, I knew I could trade for a Troops sprue. One can only have four Specialists, and it may be wiser to take Codebreakers and Casecrackers over the combat specialists. Other than a Grenadier to drop smoke grenades. So I have my one Troops sprue for those combat specialists.

Just putting together a crew…the captain will be a VS comisar. After that, I have to look at the collection. I think some of my IGuard. The doggie, I got a few doggies from fantasy…ok dire wolves. I was considering making my recruits a few Chaos cultists…it’s the long coats.

I'm building a crew using the figures from Zombiecide: Invader. Going with a theme I will let people guess at. I have most of it figured out but need a droid and an alien.

While cleaning my hobby area I ran across a bunch of sprues from Gates of Antares. Warlord also makes alien heads to go on the concord bodies, so I might actually order some of those. Plus they have drones too, even a few types of drones for different roles.

Plus a refbot from dreadball, not sure of its use yet.

I think I have my roboticist captain in the form of Tali Zorah armed with an LMG





And at the appropriate juncture she can send in the drones!

Finished another 5 crew members. Keeping with the orange and blue theme that has developed, but otherwise keeping it simple using contrast and shades, but minimal highlighting to get things done

Sally 4th Otter head on GA Crew Body, SG Mercs painted as a red panda, and "Wash", SG Mercs dino head on GA Crew Body. Wash is for my Firefly-themed crew.



Three 1st ed Warzone metal minis and a Reaper Bones plastic. I think the two Dark legion figures are (Left 2 Right) a Necromutant, a Centurion. The Bauhaus Gunner might be a Venusian Ranger without the death's head helmet, and the Bones mini is Reggie Van Zandt, who can also be purchased in metal. The detail of the Bones mini is fuzzy, and I had to consult the Reaper webstore looking up the metal figure to make out some of the detail. Have not painted any of the newer Bones Black figures whose detail is better, even viewed in the package.

They certainly look colourful. If i could hazard some photo taking advice, though, you will get better shots if the light is behind you. From the shadow showing in the table top, the light source is behind and to the side of the models, so the side toward the camera is really shadowed.

Thanks. I'll keep it in mind for next time. Have the Rogue Star Pirate Captain and the two hooded Mystics from the Nickstarter on the table, but have not felt like painting this past week.

Your camera is also focusing on the backdrop rather than the models. Usually just tapping my screen a few times will get it to focus in the right spot.

Does anyone know when the general release for these is? I'm going to get some crew when they come to Germany.

Don't know about the EU but they're retail in UK and US.

I think mercenaries are sold out in the UK though.

Under the couch

Second Stargrave crew assembled and ready for paint. Mostly built from Maelstrom's Edge miniatures, with a couple of resin ring-ins.




Captain, 1st mate and Doggo. The Captain is a Maelstrom's Edge Nimbus battlesuit, with the head from a Karist Heavy Weapon trooper. His close combat weapon is a cut down lightsaber blade from a star wars figure. Doggo is from Artel W, and the space dwarf Mate is from Victoria Miniatures.




Troopers, built from slightly modified Epirian Scarecrows. The left arm is replaced with a shin piece from another Scarecrow kit and an added blade from a Karist knife. This was to give them a slightly bulkier appearance compared to the other bots. Heads are from the Remnant Militus kit, which comes with a whole slew of different helmet designs.




Burner and Sniper. More modified Scarecrows. The burner has a shoulder mounted 'pistol' which started life as an underslung grenade launcher on an Epirian Handler arm, and the same left arm conversion as the standard Troopers. The Sniper uses the sniper rifle arms from the Captain's Nimbus kit - the kit comes with both options, so this was a handy way to make use of them both. I used a different head from the Militus sprue to accentuate his more specialised role.




Hacker and Slicer. Also modified scarecrows, with a more solid, industrial-looking head from the Militus kit. Pistol hands are taken from Epirian Handlers, and the Slicer has a slightly more literal 'pick' option in the form of a cutting torch made from Scarecrow flamethrower and Broken glue pistol.




Now to get some paint on.

I really like those kitbashes! Maelstrom's Edge minis fit really well for Stargrave.

I was in my local shop and saw the book for sale so I grabbed it straight away. Hopeful that this means in a little while we'll have the crew minis available and I can pick those up too.
