Greetings Terrans, hope you’re all well. This is the last in this little sequence of posts as I put together the last elements of my Bob Olley inspired crew for Stargrave. We were almost complete on the last post, so it’s just a pair of troopers to share today – lil’ Wayne and Big Garth:
Lil’ Wayne is from the IC301 ‘Iron Claw Space Pirates’ from back in the day (better known as ‘Banzai Jones’). Meanwhile, Big Garth is an example of ‘Malig Infantry’ from the The Ion Age minis, still available on Alternative Armies. Neither of these guys needed any conversion work, and both were painted to fit in with the rest of the crew. Really the only thing to note is the yellow skin used on Garth. Because aliens.
So that’s it folks – a very enjoyable & self contained little project, all ready for a trip over the Oirish Sea next week! I’ll leave you with some shots of the whole crew – firstly with the Captain in his fancy combat armour:
And another one when my crew is skint & can’t pay the fee for fancy combat armour:
So that’s it folks – job done! Not sure when I’ll be back to hobbying & blogging, or what my next project will be – I have a few ideas, but I’ve got a very busy time coming up & my motivation for the hobby isn’t what it once was. That said, Bring Out Your Lead is just around the corner, so we’ll see :-)

Great finish to your warband Alex, they certainly look the part. Hope your enthusiasm returns, but also hope you get through your busy time without too much stress.
Cheers mate, it’ll pass 😊
Well, I for one am sad to see this project wrap up! It’s always cool to see what people come up with for their Stargrave crews and it nudges me towards completing one myself. I’ll look forward to hopefully hearing some game reports!? The two minis this time around are pretty cool, the big guys skin looks absolutely radioactive! ☢️ I also noticed this time around that the Dwarf looks kinda like he had a cigar explode in his face! 😂 Awesome work mate! 😃
Cheers mate, I can’t promise game reports, but I’m sure there will be pics & at least some words 😁
Nice to tick a project off I’m sure. Well done mate they’re quite the nifty little crew
Cheers dude – nice & bite sized 😊
Very nice mate. 🙂
Cheers mate 🤘
Brilliant! It’s so cool to see the whole team together. Good luck and have fun at your event.
Thanks dude, will do! 🤘
Well Alex – you’ve somehow managed to make an entire warband of Bob Olley models look pretty fricking amazing. Not sure how you managed that, so I’ll go with an equal measure of talent and sheer willpower! :D
Now you just need to add the cherry on top with an Olley Ogryn model..
Cheers mate – poor fuggly buggers 😂
I’d love a whole platoon of Olley Ogryns, but sadly, I need both my kidneys 😬
Two nice models to finish with, they look awesome as a group mate.
Cheers mate, I had a lot of fun painting them, and a load of fun gaming with them this weekend!
Great looking crew, absolutely packed with character!
