The R2-D2 model came off a McDondald’s Fatty Meal toy. Can’t remember who made the humanoid robot, it has been kicking around for years, I think it may be a Rackham model.
I have a few uses for these models, mainly for my robotic Steam Wars army, but also for use in Rogue Stars.
These are another example of a super quick paint job with a healthy splattering of Army Painter Ink over the top.
Small, cute, hard target.
A couple of colours and then an ink wash. Done.
Free sample models are great, especially when I eventually find a use for one. This Dreamforge Games alien chap was holding a lead with some sort of beastie on the other end. As one of my exotic Rogue Stars crews was expanding, this model would be ideal.
I removed the lead and replaced it with a gun.
I may well remove the whip and replace that with a sword of some sort.
Getting into Rogue Stars has allowed me to dig up some old models from the Loft Full Of Lead that don’t get to come out very often. One such model for an alien crew was this Zykhee Soulless. I rebased it and gave it an ink wash as it was painted years ago and looked a bit dated.
Rogue Stars is a great opportunity to use some whacky old models.
The Golum were a range that never quite made it out in time before FASA and the Vor The Maelstrom game ceased to be. Luckily I was able to get a few of these Golum prototype models, a few of which have been painted up for use in various sci-fi games.
In my latest Rogue Stars crew, I decided to do a non-human line up so I could try out various skills and abilities. This Golum was basically a heavily armoured trooper with some built in weapons.
I wanted more objectives for my Steam Wars games but these things will also work for Rogue Stars and any other sci-fi game as well. The first lot were actually sold as custom sci-fi bases, but I thought they were so good that they would work as markers in their own right.
The last two are a bit older. The flying drilly thingy was from FASA’s Vor game quiet a few years ago and will get used as a drone of some sort.
