Starfinder Second Dry Run

Our last Starfinder Dry Run went great until the group stole a frigate and we slammed straight into a steep learning curve. I really like that Paizo didn’t take the cheap route of making starship combat a scaled up version of the on foot  segments but…we really weren’t prepared for it. That’s why round two…

Plague Aberration

As demonstrated by my take on Plague 1st Generation, I am a big “phan” of the original Phantasy Star video games that appeared on the Sega Master and Sega Genesis systems. I’ve had the Plague Aberration miniature from Mantic Games on hand since Black Friday 2016 and finally decided to do something with it as…

Hive Devastator

In my search for budget friendly spacecraft miniatures I came across Studio Bergstrom. They have a wide variety of spacecraft miniatures – some clearly inspired by popular franchises and others original creations. One of the miniatures I ordered from them was the Hive Devastator which, of course, I thought would be a great starship for…

Seth Fighter

I wanted to support smaller spacecraft in my Starfinder campaign and, luckily,  Studio Bergstrom has a great selection of them at very reasonable prices. The Seth Fighter is a very tiny miniature but variety is the spice of life… Personally, I’d find it strange to run Starfinder without ships of this scale. You get an…

Lt. Thoran

As a father of two daughters, I look forward to the day when they’ll play Pathfinder, Starfinder, and other TTRPGs with me… But, unfortunately, the vast majority of female miniatures are ones that I’d be ashamed to offer to my daughters. This is why I love Hasslefree Miniatures. They have their titillating miniatures like most other…

Garn Warrior

I plan to use the Garn Warriors from Khurasan Miniatures as Vesk in the Starfinder. I didn’t completely assemble this one – there’s suppose to be a hose running from the ammo container on it’s belt to the weapon – but I’m still pleased with how this test model turned out. I’ll be more adventurous with…

Magellanic Nomad

I ordered the Magellanic Nomad from Khurasan Miniatures immediately after reading a preview of the starship rules in Starfinder. Paizo will, eventually, get around to releasing space monster miniatures but even then I think this one will stand out. One great thing about this miniature’s design is that it isn’t pretentious; it feels natural, like a space…

Werebear

The third miniature I finished painting from Reaper Bones’ third Kickstarter. I was impressed by how much character was captured in this sculpt by James Van Schaik. It was one of those miniatures that almost painted itself. For the body, I started with a flesh colored undercoat followed and followed with a coat of reddish…

Nova Corp: Soldier

Another miniature from the original Reaper Bones Kickstarter, I started off painting just one so that it could serve as a guide for uniformly painting the remaining Nova Corp miniatures. I plan to use the set, once complete, as generic SciFi soldiers for whatever scenario comes up. I like that the Nova Corp miniatures are…

Starfinder First Dry Run

I ordered the Starfinder Core Rulebook over my long break from painting miniatures and have been absolutely won over by it. I’m definitely going to use it for my upcoming Science Fantasy campaign rather than modding Pathfinder… But before creating homebrew content I felt that it was important for me to get a feel for…
