Crooked dice figures
paulm
I am doing some of the crooked dice figures which although branded as "freedom fighters" are the liberator crew. I have a question. Does anyone know which episode Cally has on the green leather suit, as it would appear her model is wearing that costume.

Hi paulm- If I remember correctly, Cally is wearing that green full leather costume in Star One. I'll always remember her clambering up the hill to dispose of the explosives in those green boots. Poor thing! -Paula

Hi Paul,

Cally wears lots of green throughout Season 1, but this might be the one you're thinking of (Trial):

just had a look at that website. Their attempts (presumably successful) at evading copyright infringement lawsuits is almost as impressive as their miniatures!!
 
paulm
Brilliant thanks. I want to get the paint shades right if i can.

Yes especially the Servalan and Travis figures

I look forward to seeing some finished painting results. Please do share.

I have also been impressed with their range, and have bought the full set. I'll have to try and dig them out and get moving on them. As I have been a mini painter for over 30 years, if people want, I'd be happy to put up a step-by step on one of them.

This is what I had done to show another forum what they look like.

And these are the bases that I planned to use for them.

Both the models will actually be stripped back to bare metal and re-undercoated as I use a different technique for painting these days. If the weather is suitable - which it probably won't be - I'll try and get them stripped and re-primed tonight. I need decent weather as I spray my primer through a spraygun.

Nice bases. I've bought resin bases that represent the ship's decking for mine. I'd be interested to see how yours turn out- I've still yet to tackle mine!

SC, that's a good idea. Mind if I ask where you got them from? (Although I also have some "Forge Ruins" bases from Anvil Industries, so may use those instead.)

I bought two sets of 10 from Ebay- Link to first set and Link to 2nd set

The first set I ordered had blast damage on them, unlike these ones here (The blast-damaged ones are out of stock) and I intend to use those for the Federation figures when I get them. Set 2 is 'clean' decking that looks more like it could be from Libby or Scorpio, so that's going to be used for my Blake and his merry crew. The battle-damaged bases are actually 25mm Necromunda bases for WH40K gaming, should they come back into stock and you want to have a look.

Coser
Thanks SC. They are certainly of interest, although none of them are particularly 'correct' for either the Liberator or Scorpio, the second set is certainly as close as I have seen.

I suppose that if you actually go for the sets, then plain flat plasticard painted properly should be correct, but I always thought of having them down on a planet, and the bases I went for (Anvil Industry "Granite Wasteland" ) look good enough for the beach on Sarran where Avon and Dayna meet.

OK, I know Gan is dead by then, and Blake, Cally, Villa, and Jenna never set foot on the place, but what the heck.

I may even try and work the entire set into the bridge of another ship, but that is currently way more work than I can cope with.

I like the idea that Travis' first name is "Stefan" (instead of "Trevor" Pfft) ... this way, at last one B7 character is named after me! Grin
 
Coser
And on the way are two more "Future Freedom Fighters", this time a haggard bounty hunter with a pistol tucked into his belt and a suspiciously Federated Security looking sidearm, and a pony-tailed, pistol packing freedom fighter. Look out for them in August.

More details here.

So an S4 Blake, and Soolin! The likenesses are again spot on!

I think that was only in the B7 Media reboot audio version. He identifies himself as 'Travis, Stefan G.' which must have been an in-joke by the writers; a nod to the actor who played Travis I.

But you can adopt the name Travis if it makes you happy (and if Trevor T lets you) - after all, I'm a member of the Travis family, too Smile

Does anyone know which costumes these two are wearing from which episode or are they fictitious ones?

Blake appears to be dressed in his costume from episodes 1, 2, &3, except that the colors are wrong. Should be dark green waistcoat with khaki sleeves. Or possibly his outfit from Weapon, but again the colors are wrong.

Can't place Dayna. It's similar to her costume in Ultraworld, but again the colors are not quite right and I certainly don't recall seeing her in thigh high boots.
 
paulm
thanks, i will go for the ultraworld colourscheme and try and disguise the boots
