As the weather outside is less than perfect for undercoating, and as I haven’t been motivated to paint any of my prepped miniatures, I have been basing and cleaning up these lads.

They fit nicely together even though they come from three different manufacturers.

Steve is my favourite by far. A platypus in a space suit is always going to get noticed.

Add in a bionic eye and what’s not to like…

The Chipster is next in my order of likes.  Both have body armour and very big guns so these guys are likely to make up the central combat aspect of any crew.

Tech support and robot lackey.  Lots of options for game specific skills and abilities here.

More armour and guns.  A crew is always going to need more guns.

If they don’t get used soon for Rogue Stars then they are likely to feature as a mutant crew for Scrappers.

Scrappers was my only Salute purchase of new rules.  The latest Osprey book to be released (this time in hardback format so not one of their numbered blue ‘wargames’ rules).  It features a Post Apocalypse setting and uses between a 3 and 15 man crew in a campaign based system.  Not read as yet as I want to keep focussed on the games we are playing and not be distracted but that is unlikely to last long…
