Big Damn Heroes

Captain Tightpants
15 mm

"This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode. "

A former rebel, a thief, a freelance trader and an all-round rogue with a heart of gold, the Captain inspires loyalty in his crew of misfits and outlaws.  His battle-worn brown coat reminds him that while he may once have been on the losing side, he's still not convinced it was the wrong one...

Ship and crew

Well, that makes the entire crew... definitely a couple of nice sets (1, 2) from Ground Zero Games.  I picked up the perfect ship for them too, the "Glow-worm class freighter", in roughly the same scale as the last one I painted.

You can't take the sky from me...


  1. This is most likely the best 15mm tribute to the series I've ever seen. Everything looks fantastic!

  2. Sweeter than sweet, Mr. M!

  3. Wow. Just wow stuff... they are all incredibly well-painted Allison. Clearly you own the fiefdom of fifteen millimetre :-)

    1. Thanks for the very kind words, though I think a fiefdom sounds a bit un-democratic ;)

  4. Brilliant paintjob on these outstanding minis from GZG.

  5. I simply love them. Absolutely gorgeous.

  6. Thanks much for the comments, everyone... this group was a definite labour of love, so I'm glad they turned out decently.

  7. Great stuff, love the ship.
