I'll start. The crew of the Beltalowda.

Mostly old GW Imperial Army and Van Saar gangers.

Cool. I haven't decided whether I'll be getting into the game but likely my crew would consist of a mishmash of RPG scifi figs I collected in the 90's and early 00's along with some of my initial 3d prints.

I’m printing a few generic sci fi models I’ve picked up over the past year or so. Need to work out how many dog models I have so far. Printed 2 yesterday. Need to go hunting for more

Robots. I plan on using some of these in a crew and they'll also work well as "unwanted attention".

Ohh, all about this thread. I don't have any pictures of my two crews yet but they will be posted as soon as they are ready. In the mean time, for anyone with a 3d printer, please take a look at Anvil Industries Patreon (Anvil Digital Forge). They have some great stuff for Stargrave.

My first crew is still very much in progress...

Test model, Dave - Recruit.



Second model finished, 'Lanky' (L4-NK), a robot Runner.


Most of the gang is built from assorted Maelstrom's Edge models with a few WGA Einherjar accessories added where necessary. Also a converted Hasslefree Eve, and an Einherjar with a MEdge Broken alien head.

Looking good. With those orange uniforms I'd call their spaceship the Guantanamo.

I was playing with a crew list last night. Need to sort the models, but the following seemed like a good mix.

Captain: Robotics Expert
Remote Guidance, Remote firing, Drone, Lock breaker, Rewire Robot
Rapid Fire, heavy armour, pistol Filter mask, knife

XO: Mystic
Void blade, life leech, holographic wall, energy shield
Pistol, hand weapon, knife, grenades, shotgun

Soldiers: robot dog, dog, carbine trooper, shotgun trooper, recruit

Specialists: codebreaker, commando, robot gunner

Captain can remote control the 2 robots as required or give some heavy fire support

The XO moves up with the commando, shotgunner and the dogs using the holographic wall as required.

Might work

Depending on how useful Carbines are compared to shotguns, might have a different mix on the commando and troopers.

Where does the shotgun trooper come from? Still waiting on my book, but I didn't see that option in the crew rules they released.

Shotguns are just a direct swap from a Carbine on any model equipped with a Carbine. Shorter Range but better Damage

There is no Overkill, only "Open Fire," and "I need to Reload."
When someone tries to kill you, just kill them right back.

Indeed. It’s listed under the weapon description. I can’t work out if you need to choose once, or if carbines and shotguns can be swapped out between missions as required. Given that you can change your captain and XO kit freely and instantly replace any list weapons, I get the feeling that the rules intend you to be able to swap out soldier and specialist weapons freely as well.

Good to know. Would have been even better to know before I built my first crew...

Although I only wound up with three carbines in that crew anyway (and probably none that I would want to swap for now), and everyone else with pistols. Might need to slightly rethink the second crew, though... maybe switch out one of my soldier-bots for a shotty-bot.

I’m starting from scratch with the Stargrave models, might be a few other models I bring in from various sources but even so they won’t be painted currently either.

Not sure whether to get them to all look in the same style per crew, or whether to just mish mash colours and styles etc between them..

Some size comparisons and observations for those thinking of kit bashing


GW cultist, Stargrave Trooper, GW Poxwalker, Stargrave Trooper, GW GSC Magos, Stargrave Trooper, GW GSC


Maelstrom's Edge Broken alien head, Stargrave Trooper, Maelstrom's Edge Broken human head, Stargrave Trooper, GW GSC Cadian body, Maelstrom's Edge Broken human head (tall hairstyle), Stargrave Trooper



Frostgrave Gnoll with Stargrave arms, Stargrave trooper, female head Stargrave trooper, Stargrave trooper male head, Maelstrom's Edge arm, Maelstrom's Edge Broken with Stargrave arm

arm swaps between Stargrave troopers and Medge Broken work fine, although hand size/sculpting is noticeably different so both arms from one kit works best (or swapping out the hand)


WGA WWI German, WGA WWI German with Stargrave arm, Stargrave trooper, WGA Grognard, WGA Grognard with Stargrave arm, Stargrave trooper, Maelstrom's Edge Broken with Stargrave arms, Stargrave trooper

the WGA Germans can be used for head swaps, but the bodies and arms don't work with the stargrave stuff as they're much more true scale/less heroic (I'm guessing that will be the same for their wwii stuff too)

I think the WGA ancients stuff like the Persians will be similarly too slightly built but don't have any to hand

the WGA Grognards work well, both for head swaps and arm swaps (so the other Deathfields kits like the Raumjager should be fine too)

Exalted. Thanks for the comparison shots. Especially useful for me as I currently have a mix of Maelstrom's Edge Broken, ME Epirian Corporation, and Les Grognards. Waiting for my Nickstarter shipment.

Thanks, I've had great fun messing about with them,

especially building my Gnoll heavy assault squad (1 SMG/Knife, 1 Sniper, 2 MGs and 1 Missile launcher)

If you've got a problem, if nobody else can help and if you can afford them they'll make it disappear (in a loud and messy fashion)

that's the group of 5, I've added a reload for the missile launcher on his back, and a harness to hold it (and remember to drill out the back of the tube if you've got an appropriate sized drill bit, it really makes it look better

Orlando, you're good with the greenstuff.

About the Gnoll kit, my only nit-pick is the number of gnoll heads with eye-patches. IIRC, there are three per sprue. Eye-patches are distinctive, and any easily recognizable detail like that I prefer on character models. It's harder to blend them into rank & file. This will not stop me from building more gnolls as "Melconians", once my Stargrave order arrives. [SInce I already own the gnoll kit, I was planning on using them as the pirates after JoeMC wrote about the timing mechanism in his blog.]

Gnolls look fantastic!
Really nice work.
Will definitely have to get mine built up.

Shame I haven’t got 5 more, a full Gnoll crew would be cool!

Those Gnolls do look good. Starting to wish I'd gotten all 3 box sets instead of just the crew. But then I look at my backlog, including 40 FG cultists and sigh.

I’m gonna make a crew using just the cultist and gnolls, as they are all a bit tattered looking and unarmoured.
Maybe that one captain with the spear thing,
Or both Cap and XO from the sprues too..

That does give me about 5 crews of stuff, with only three in mind planned.
Thank god I sold half of each box or it’d be 8 crews worth..


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Is there a tactics thread for Stargrave yet that I might have missed?
Or perhaps just in this thread (and maybe a painting/crews show off in the painting/modelling section?)

Just want to start some discussions and maybe rules questions etc all in one place.
Perhaps I’ll make a thread for it...?

Second crew coming together. Left to right - Robot Burner, Cyborg Captain, Robodog, Robot Trooper, Robotics expert First Mate, and Robot Hacker.



Robots are slightly modified Maelstrom's Edge Scarecrow bots. Captain is a MEdge Nimbus battlesuit with a Karist heavy trooper head, dog is from Artel W and the first mate is a Dwarf Merc from Vic Minis.

A scarecrow/drone crew is a great way to do robots.

Sigh. Another project for the queue.
