Stargrave bestiary 1
Saturday, 21 August 2021
Last year I was on a fantasy roll; this year the science fiction bug has bitten. I was quite looking forward to Stargrave, but have become distracted by the very nice new third edition of Five Parsecs from Home. Which is the roundabout way I got inspired to finally slapping paint on these Goliaths.
I picked up a few cheap preassembled gangs when Necromunda got re-released a few years ago. I didn’t really love them- I’m not a huge fan of the sculpted bases, and getting them second-hand meant I wasn’t as invested as if I had built them myself. And the weapon choices aren’t the ones I would have made. So I put off painting them, which is a shame as they are lovely sculpts.
The skin is just one pass of Contrast Guilliman Flesh, then white for teeth. That’s it! I used Vallejo spray white as undercoat.
I don’t even know what some of these weapons are… but I really love the ridiculous oversized revolvers.
Here's a bonus; an old photo of my 1995 plastic Goliaths. I can't remember what happened to them.
Goliaths are a pretty one-note faction, but they make great antagonists. I haven't come up with a gang name yet; suggestions welcomed.

Nemesis: The Intruders
Here are my speed-painted Intruders for Nemesis. I undercoated them with Army Painter Gunmetal spray, then sloshed on GW Contrast Akhelian Green. I gave them a light metallic drybrush, and picked out the fleshy bits. I did add some UHU drool, but wasn't feeling it and decided not to add any blood effects.
I don't quite grok the implied lifecycle, but here are the gribblies:
