Solar farm - Strontium Dog

Due to a bunch of childhood flachbacks I just needed to get me a box of the newly released Strontium Dog: The Good the Bad and the Mutie starter game from Warlord games.

The box was filled with stuff, 8 minis, different cards, rulebook, introduction scenarios/campaign (for the minis included, dice, markers and a MDF-Solar farm.

I have only had one read of the rules so cant say much about them else then I already like what they done with the lovely layouted rulebook, easy, really small scale action, perfect for a fast kitchen table game.

I have primed the minis butnot started the painting, instead I have focused to build the Solar farm from Sarissa-Precission that was included in the Strontium dag starter box. I have never erlier built any lasercut set, this one was delivered in a flat package with step-by-step instruction just like IKEA so I felt familiar... 

The build was quite easy, some of the parts felt a bit fragile, but I managed only to break one part, easy fixed with some glue:) I opted to add a bit of planks etc to get a more rag-tag look.

Below are some pictures of my painted-up Solar farm.

"Jabba, you're a wonderful human being..."

Quote by Han Solo, after Jabba extended the time he had to repay his debts.

Found a Jabba key ring ar a flee market and thought it would work for Star Wars Legion, turned out to be a little bit to big to be in real scale, but I don´t mind as Hutts are quite big anyway.

The base i mounted Jabba on are a display base from a Revell X-Wing.

The Pricess and the Navy boys

Have been painting some more Star Wars Legion minis lately, Princess Leia and a box of Fleet Troopers. Decided not to paint tmen in the clasical colours but still navy inspired.
