Jasper paints some Blackstar Corsairs

Recommended Posts

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....:upside:).

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....

Really excellent. I can't wait to see these painted up. I eventually want to get some of these guys and paint them up as Terran Marines from SCII.

Did you ever get these guys painted up? 

 

Heh, no, not even started.  I posted this up in early Feb of 2018, when I thought I was going to have a few months with lots of painting time as I started my job search and enjoyed being paid not to work.  I think about a week later a whole mess of real life intruded all over my plans and pretty much nothing got painted since.

These guys are now in a box (somewhere in the basement possibly, or maybe in the apartment.....). Once the move is over, and the new paint room is set up, they will be unpacked and hopefully get worked on sometime in the next...year?

I know how that goes. 

I was just looking around the web to see how others had painted theirs, and there isn't a lot out there.

Very cool I added some of the weapons from the fantasy weapon sprue to mine

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago.  2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
      I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
      I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter.  I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
      So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.

      I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest,  so I guess they are alright.
       
      It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see?  Sloooooow.)
      But the whole unit is finally done.

       
      Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
       
      Now back to all those Stormtroopers.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.
