In a Galaxy not that far away!


Some time ago I mentioned obtaining some great old OOP West End Games Star Wars figures. In the time between then and now I've been painting some of them up and thought I'd show them here. Now I have quite a lot of Tatooine flavoured stuff so I based them desert-fashion. That said I do not yet have anything resembling desert terrain so the figures are photographed on my usual grass matt which feels all wrong.

 Now without further ado:

Some desert-dwellers

Staff at the Cantina

Mos Eisley Residents

Jabba's Muscle (certainly not his brain...)

And finally the proverbial Local Yokel, about to have his Galaxy turned upside down...

I still have quite a lot of Tatooine themed figures awaiting basing and coating but had to order more bases from Renedra. Amongst these are about all the available Bounty hunters including the famous Boba Fett...
Talking philosophically about these miniatures: at the moment I am more into them from a collecting point of view. As such basing should not be a problem, but my present collection has two main angles. These are Tatooine, as already stated, and some space-station/ Star Destroyer kind of theme. The latter needs an all together different approach base-wise. No real decent bases are available so I need to get converting or get my friend Mark to laser me something. I might just know what that should be but I am keeping it to myself for now.

Anyway hope you like these and keep your eyes peeled for more in the (nearish)  future!

Cheers Sander
