Any Smuggling Crews And Independent Adventurers For 15mm VSF?
« on: August 28, 2016, 12:10:17 AM »
Are there any good 15mm candidates for a VSF version of Firefly - meaning the crew and colorful characters of the ship Serenity?

It seems like it shouldn't be too difficult to convert the smuggling crew theme to a new genre, don't you think?



Something like this in 15mm could work as Jayne's VSF counterpart (with his "Vera"):

I believe Kurasan makes some

I think GZG did some as well. It shouldn't be too hard to us some Old West/AWI figures to get the desired effect.

Do you guys might these could work as Alliance?  Or as some rogue villain's private force?

For the crew head to GZG 15mm set sg15-x04b to give you one of each character.  The figures are a little static but good representations.

Hi Andrew,

Good suggestion!  This other GZG trader crew set (sg15-x04a) looks good too, though a little bit of conversion might be needed:

Found this close-up picture with the core figures, before they were expanded and then split into two sets:

Of course, I thought we were supposed to see the Alliance as some rogue villian's private force.  :D

Have been dabbling a bit with 15mm myself, and delighted for the thought on these.

Hi Doug!

Here's another option for a Nemo-like uniformed crew:

These armored guys really look like they could be useful for armored "Alliance" troops:

I wonder if anyone is planning to put them back in production.  Anyone know?

PS.  These Rebel Minis characters paint up nicely.  I really wish I had his skill:
