Garn Commander

Being new to a scale has its advantages. I managed to double my painted figure count in one session by finishing a second 15mm sci-fi figure! For years the only figure I had finished was the yellow-suited citadel Traveller figure I've used on this blog for a bit of scale. At this point I probably got about 200+ unpainted in the lead pile so my painted to unpainted ratio is pretty dismal... always was a slow painter!

 I added the sword to the Garn when I bought him a few years back. It was originally the bayonet and rifle-end off a Dixon Dahomey figure. The jumpsuit was sculpted after being inspired by Spacejacker's Garn conversions over at Tiny Solitary Soldiers.

I've got 8 Garn troopers and two heavy weapon conversions still in the lead pile which I'm planning to paint different colours in terms of their clothing so they should look like a bunch of irregular rag-tag space pirates when they're finished.


Not much gaming potential with just two figures. Being a big fan of metagaming Melee I might try some duels using the Legends of Time and Space . I'd probably drop the IQ stat, allow a running shot to be attempted on 4/DX, no grenades, and add in the dodge movement option and the critical hit/miss rules from Melee and see how that plays.  Should be fast and bloody fun!
