Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 20210523_234738.thumb.jpg.41eb8d86ca71612d6c2c7c8bcbc7c9c8.jpg

Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.


A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.


Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

Gun metals up the guns and experimented with some washes on the lizardmen and clopsen.20210524_235417.thumb.jpg.e18dda9cd84b3745d9a1f0b0d5596ebf.jpg

Redid the straps on the lizards first. 


used quickshade blue tone on the first one, secret weapon green black on the middle and watered down nightmare black on the last. A little disappointed with green black, really thought it would be darker. Might dig out my orkhide shade and see if that is still good. That was my go to green wash for a while.


Also painted the pants and necklaces here. And used quick shade flesh wash, it looks ok on the one in the front but I might go back on the one in the back with some pro paint flesh ink, it's much darker and good for very weathered  skin, flesh wash is more subtle shading than I think I want here.

Also, you can't see it here but I had to green stuff out the hair on the other side of the front clopsen to even it out and also fix his mustache a bit, but now I'm wondering if it's not that the other side wasn't teased out enough. But that there's a sculpt error or miscast on the side we see here. Like maybe the ears were supposed to be sculpted but then weren't or something. I think it's too late to dr o anything about it now. It looks fine on the table as is.

I like the way the pistol lizards look

Thanks, the guns are from the scifi cultist conversion sprue and a crew arm respectively with last finger scraped away. Though looking at them now, I might make a green stuff bracelet for at least one of them.

I made based and/or based 2 more recruits/runners deciding after deciding the crew should have 3 of each race. 1 recruit or runner, 1 standard with a cost, and 1 specialist. So I needed another cultist and a clopsen.


I also put together a Garn commander from khurasan to be the 1st mate, but i haven't been sold on any color scheme I've tried so far. Everyone liked their new red uniforms though. Did a little bit of shading of the red as well

Didn't get a whole lot done with the crew. Mostly just picking at details.


Settled on the unfifirm for these guys and also whited up most everyone's eyes.20210619_190824.thumb.jpg.5c92896b73f8b1953e6b92217e86f0a4.jpg

Gave the CO some teeth and officially attached him to the base. Starting to settle on his color, but it's green and orange/red which are colors I don't see well so if this looks wierd let me know. I might not be able to see places where some colors end up in the wrong places or just look awful,  so I would appreciate any audience participation when it comes to the color of this guy.20210619_190814.thumb.jpg.07ad1b858b5397dfeca5d992f96aee44.jpg

Everyone as they stand right now.

Make way for the Captain! And also some other guy that will probably join a different crew or become a pirate or something. 20210626_025100.thumb.jpg.e2a403da4e5cd28c0375d15f9ceb07a4.jpg

Edit: hmmm not sold on blue for the pants. Looks too modern, might go with brown after all.

      The ritual has done its work. From a distance, an eerie light shines through the trees.
      The ground quakes under the tread of colossal hooves.
      There is a rushing wind, the sound of snapping branches.
      An indescribable tune, notes in a strange scale and meter, music from beyond the stars, builds to a skirling crescendo.

      HE is come. The PIPER IN THE WOODS is here. 

      Burning with potassium flame, attended by HIS servants. 



      Behold! The Horned Lord approaches! 

      Deception and concealment among HIS sacraments! The Masked Messenger, the False-Faced! 


      IA! IA! 



      The power of a God, called to earth! HIS votaries rejoice, even as they cower!





      (This is a Nolzur's Nightwalker, given a little bit mote pizazz than the all-black example. I knew immediately that with the bone-mask face and the horns, it was the perfect avatar for the cultists. GW contrasts and good setting sunlight on the translucent flames; a GW demon skull from their Skullz set manifested in the upraised hand.) 
      Featuring Dulkathar, Gromtar, Dark Creeper, a couple of Crooked Dice cultists, and Dark Young from RAFM and Reaper. (Reaper's 77516 is the big one in green).

      (I've had these finished for a while and THOUGHT I'd posted them already, but the search engine can't find them.)

      In the ancient days when the Solar System was young, the Martian Empire spread far and wide through the local outer spiral arm before the Veiled Catastrophe ended their hegemony. They built miracles and left behind marvels. Sometimes they left behind colonies. A few of these, such as the ancestors of the Andromedan Dominion, flourished. Others saw the colonists die off, to be replaced aeons later by evolved descendants of flora and fauna brought along during the terraforming (Martiaforming?) process. 

      Still others suffered resource collapse, and the colonists relapsed into centuries of barbarism. Witness one such case.

      Here are representatives of the Skull-Fang tribe, wielders of the sacred xolchu knife-axe (similar to our huckable Earth mambele knives):



      And here their great rivals, the spear-wielding Moonspike tribe. 




      Skirmishes between the two are a way of life since time immemorial. Only the greatest warriors go without a shield, preferring instead to dual-wield their own weapons and those taken from the enemy. 


      Even in their reduced state, though, they have not lost the Martian intellect. Between clashes their bards create great sagas and carvings of incredibly advanced mathematics. Their shamans have deduced nuclear and relativistic physics from first principles. There simply isn't enough smeltable metal left to put their designs to use. 

      Three local years after the disastrous First Contact with outward-expanding Earth forces, a temporary alliance of the tribes managed to build a working hyperdrive out of scrap metal bits and a stolen ray gun. Since then, their ballooning fleet of pirated ships has been kept in check only by internal struggles. Kinetic projectiles on gravity-slingshot orbits are their specialty, and the shock of having your ship depressurized by a knife thrown from several light-seconds away is one few spacers are prepared to deal with.

      The ship I built with one of my daughters needed a crew. And for the girls I needed a female crew of course. Fortunately there existed a set of four females for Ghost Archipelago, the warmer version auf Frostgrave. The minis are metal instead of the plastic box for the male crew. And of course this way they are more expensive than their male counterparts. We need more girls in miniature games.
      One was painted bei the middle-aged. Another one did my youngest daughter. Two more In finished after they started. Maybe I will have photos of them on the ship another time.

      I haven't done a WIP in quite a while, and I want to keep committed to clearing my Shelf of Shame for the year.  So here's an unfinished mini from my shelf:  Reaper 77108: Shadow Dragon:

      I had assembled & primed this mini before, but hadn't painted it, so it sat on my shelf for a while.  So two nights ago, I washed it, sprayed Stynylrez black primer over it, then sprayed a base coat of Burgundy Wine. 
      ...and that's where it stands.  Hopefully, I have an opportunity for more work tonight.
      I don't have any ideas at present for what the color scheme will be, save that I want it to be purple.

      This should make great terrain for many SciFi skirmish games. The EBs are gone, so the all-in is 79 AUD.
