VSF Royal navy lboarding party!

I purchased these figures a few weeks ago at the Cavalier show sometimes when you buy figures you just need to paint them almost straight away. These were just such figures.

They will be prefect for "In her majesties name" or if I choose "Rogue stars" (but set in a Victorian setting! The figures are by Ironclad miniatures (LINK) and are the Royal Navy Boarding party. the officers were I will admit bought by mistake (I meant to get specialist weapons) and regular crew.  But at the price it would be ceorlish to complain. 6 figures for £8.50. I will no doubt get the specialist weapons a little later. I will also pick up the Prussian storm troopers and the evil henchmen at the same time. But that is for the future and for this project I have some Artizan Skypirates as well. for when I get the chance to paint them, but they have been waiting a few years now.
More of this later!

  1. This is an interesting departure for you, mate. I can see these being useful in a number of games and genres, including the ones you mentioned and others.

    1. Thank you Bryan. I have always been a fan of Victorian Science Fiction, even before the Space 1889 RPG. So it is about time I did some.

    1. Thank you Michael. The sculpts are not brilliant, but they paint up quite nicely. I will most definitely be getting more.

  4. Excellent looking miniatures. I saw these in the flesh when I was doing Empire of the Dead and they have some cracking minis in there range. Nice paint jobs as well.

    1. Thank you Simon. I agree there is a nice swap over with "Empire of the dead". And much to commend both games and figure ranges.

    1. Thank you Rod. I will be working on my Aeronef fleet soon (most likely next week). It turns out that I went to university with a big aeronef player who knows Tony (Brigade models) and Robin (Who wrote the Imperial skies rules)
