Pilot for my A-Wing!

 

A few months back, I picked up a bargain, - an A-wing fighter from Amazon. You can read all about it here.

The only thing that disappointed me was that I didn't have a pilot for it. Well now, thanks to the Stargrave Crew box, I had the parts available to build my own! 

The figure is a straight assembly of parts in the box, and it scales almost perfectly with the fighter! 

I don't paint with orange very often, unless I happen to be painting pumpkins, but there is something really delightful about the high contrast between the orange jumpsuit and the white straps. It really makes the figure pop! 

I must admit, doing this one figure has kind of got me interested in doing a small squad of 'rebels'. 

(P.S. Yes, I know that in the movies A-wing pilots are generally depicted as wearing green, but I wanted orange.)

  1. I'd love to see a battle report of your record against your pumpkin-headed monsters! I miss those guys.

  2. Great looking rebel miniature and fighter. The orange works really well, and the pilot is nicely painted. Sometimes orange can go a bit patchy, but your work turned out lovely.

  4. Looking good. And looking foreword to seeing your Rebels and Stormtroopers that you will have to build to fight them.

  5. Orange is just a better color anyhow. It's lively!

  6. Those Stargrave minis are nicely simple, but still have a lot of character.

  7. That really looks the business!

    Are there any plans to license official Stargrave mats? I used my FG and ROSD ones as references for basing their respective miniatures so they match up. I would love to have some SG ones to do the same! I am woefully indecisive when it comes to basing styles...

    1. Not that I know of. Osprey handles such deals. I base almost all of my models exactly the same, just so I don't have to think about it!
