Somewhere in the Wailing Reach, seven brave spacefarers disembark from their ship, ready for anything...This was a project I'd been wanting to get started on for a long time. I wanted a crew of seven, same size as the crew of the Nostromo in Alien. For a long, long time the missing link was the navigator, as I was never able to find him for sale for less than about 30 bucks. Then about two weeks ago he appeared as a buy it now for 10 and I snatched him up. The same day he arrived in the mail, I started painting up my ship's crew.
Here's the Captain. The blonde hair and beard make me think of Zaphod Beeblebrox.
And the first officer...
Tech Priest and Engineer. The Engineer is the only non GW figure in the bunch. No idea who manufactured him. I like him, though.
He came in a lot with two other space ship crew figures, but unfortunately these were of such poor quality that they were unusable and I threw 'em in the junk heap. Weird lack of facial details!
Gunner, navigator and the ship's doctor/science officer/imperial ecologist...The navigator is a big figure...he towers head and shoulders over his ship-mates!
The gunner ready for action. Possibly my favorite mini of the group...
Got to love the mad doctors!
