Blackstar Corsairs experiment

Recommended Posts

Here's an experiment. Unfortunately it looks like the mousling head is a little too big:

Here's a goblin head. This looks a little better. I think I could carve out the socket a bit more and it will look better.

...hell, the mouseling head is already too small for the Space Mouselings. Looks fine on the Corsair.

Head swaps are always fun. Sometimes more fun than others.

I think it looks pretty good actually. Besides, when head-swapping, a minor size differential isn't a problem:

Hmmm, I guess I was going by where the faceplate is on the original. Now that I look at it again, the faceplate is pretty low, about even with the shoulders. If I think of the helmet as being more of a collar, then the mousling head does seem to work ok. I guess it's all in how you look at it.....

      Since I don't have enough projects on the go, I decided to start another one.  When the Bones III Kickstarter came around I really liked the Blackstar Corsairs, so much I ordered two sets.
      When the giant box o' Bones arrived I was surprised to see them on their sprues still and in pieces. Not a problem, it just meant I couldn't play with them, err, inspect them when I was sorting my figs.  So they all went in a Ziploc.
      Today while pondering which project to work on I noticed them (they were hiding behind another project I have't even started a WIP on yet....).
      And tonight while pondering how the Olympics ruin TV for everyone, even when it is night where the Olympics are being held, I decided to go take a look at them.
       
      I found it interesting that all 5 come with the same "accessory" sprue, which contains a bayonet, a belt of grenades?, the visor, a sheathed knife and a gun with right hand.
      But 80076 and 80080 come with the same gun on their parts sprue as well.  So you end up with a couple extra guns.
      Each guy comes in 4 parts btw, lower torso, upper torso and each arm.  My plan is to do the first 5 as designed, then do some mods on the other 5.  May need to look for some weapons to swap.
       
      At this point these guys are just clipped and friction fitted.  I'll get them cleaned up and glued together sometime soon.  The middle 3 will likely need the right arm and weapon left off until after painting the body.
      Not sure if I'll use all of the accessories on all of them or not.
       
      I'm very happy with these guys, glad I got 2 sets.  They will likely play a role in my Savage Rifts campaign at some point.  And maybe the IMEF have a new enemy to battle....
