So what are you planning to use the Blackstar Corsairs for?

Recommended Posts

So, I really like the Blackstar Corsairs and am going to end up with quite a few of them (25-50).  I intend to use them for several things:

1)Along with the IMEF guys, I plan to use the Corsairs for Tomorrow's War (wargame from Ambush Alley Games)

2)Possibly for a Living Steel rpg campaign, though definitely not using the Phoenix Command based original rules since I value not going insane from reading game mechanics.

3)Any other sci-fi rpg's I find myself needing power armor for (Traveller/Star Frontiers/Thousand Suns/etc)


I'm planning to do some conversions on some of them to add some special/heavy weapons to the mix.  Not sure what those will be yet, might raid some Tau weapons for that purpose as I think they would fit the aesthetic pretty well.


Anyway, anyone got any cool plans for these guys?  Or suggestions of games they would go well with?

I love the suits. I won't lie, I'm going mod them up and paint them as some StarCraft Terran Marines.

It had occurred to me they make quite passable Terrans.  You gonna use Bathalians for Zerg?

After bones 2 was over, I was kicking myself for not getting the SciFi expansion as I got a bug in my head to do a x-com table top game like necromunda/mordheim. With the imef guys from bones 1, aliens and terrain from bones 2, expansion 2, and these guys would have all fit in.


Have a couple of players on a team cooperating vs gm running different scenarios. Have a campaign strategy map portion.

There is a 473-year-old prophecy that a star shall fall upon the Sea of Grass, six nights after the Summer Solstice.  Men seek such stars for the wondrous metal they leave, and forge them into blades that can split a hair or fell an ox.  But this particular star is cursed, for the Mreen claim it as their own.   But the Mreen have passed into legend - ridiculous tales of invincible constructs with necks of leather and jars for heads that enforced the will of the Ruler of the Stars.  But a very precise map with a very specific date promising a very valuable treasure - well, if it's wrong you won't be out a lot of time.  Besides, it's right along the way to the Barrier Peaks...

I'm getting two sets (may climb to three) and, like Pegazus, I haven't got a clue what I'm using them for. ::): I'm planning on painting one set up as-is just to have some straight-up SF stuff, but then I might see what kinds of mods other folks make to the Corsairs and do something funky to the extra set(s).

Don't have a solid plan yet, but I run enough scifi RPGs that power armor of assorted kinds is always useful.





Now that I think of it, there is one huge glaring gap in my scifi minis: non powered armor space suits. I've got piles of power armor, and piles of generic future wear but no space suits, er well except for the ghost astronaut who is a skeleton. Gonna need to hope for some in bones 4.

      Got around to painting a blackstar corsair I modified last year. I figured a pirate always could use some more guns on their suit

      This looks pretty fun. Apologies for formatting on my phone and stuff got lost. They pay a living wage

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      Hi people.
      Im going to start another PBP.  So far I have interest from @ShadowRaven, @dwarvenranger, @Dilvish the Deliverer, and @Kangaroorex.
      We’re going to start the Serpent’s Skull adventure path.  Pathfinder 1e.
      All books are in play, but I reserve the right to veto something if it seems too gross/bloated.
      Please utilize the Serpent’s Skull Players Guide from the Paizo website.
      Abilities: 4d6, reroll all 1’s, drop lowest score, yielding ranges from 2-18 pre mods.
      Avg. Starting gold.
      We’ll follow the AP leveling track when possible.
      We’ll have individual initiative.
      I hope to get this started soon, so please post those characters.

      House Rules
      1. HP beyond first level.  Roll the hit die.  If the roll is less than”avg” then take avg instead.  Example: Wizard d6.  Rolls a 1.  Gets 4hp instead, before Con mod.
      2. Acrobatics can be used to avoid AOO when standing from prone.
      3. If someone is not responding and action is waiting for them, I’ll send a pm after 24 hours.  If no response 24 hours later, I’ll take over that character to get action rolling again.
