15mm Firefly Crew from Ground Zero Games

A Full Complement: Firefly crew finally completed

UPDATE: Well it was annoying me. My attempt at at a shadowy goatee was rubbish so I’ve redone Jayne’s face and given him a shave.IMG_1676_28mm_painted_miniatures_warchest

Waaaay back in the mists of time I painted up one of the packs from GZG that (seemed to) depicted crew members from a rather popular sci fi TV series (and film) that I thoroughly enjoyed. The first pack contained 3 of the crew (the more ‘action’ orientated members) and they suited my desire to create some bounty hunter type crews at that time. There were 2 variants for each character so I painted one of each character ‘as per Firefly’ and took liberties with the other three.

The second pack are one pose each of the remaining crew. Probably more recognisable as their TV counterparts because of their more specific attire. Certainly en mass there is no mistaking who they resemble.

Here are the new additions. All 15mm.

My Verdict: Model okay. Could be a little more ‘action’ for this character. Painting not bad.

My Verdict: One of my favourite models from the set. Happy with the painting.

Verdict: Wash wasn’t quite that gormless looking and while the model is good it doesn’t look like the character. Quite happy with the paint.

Verdict: Good ‘objective’ miniature. The sculpting already made this character look like an older man and my painting doesn’t help. If I’d gone with greying hair he’d be a good middle/old age doctor type.

Verdict: Pretty boring sculpt TBH. Difficult to paint beauty and glamour at this scale. Sorry to the cast!

Apologies to the female members of the cast/crew. My painting does none of them justice.

Here are the previously completed crew members re-photographed.

Don’t know what happened to his face. Will need to revisit with brush…
