The Rebel Fleet Masses at Sullust

Along with the Rebel soldiers I completed recently I bought a couple of packs of the Ground Zero Games  New Colonial Forces, but with helmets. To my mind these looked like the Rebel Fleet Troopers that man the spaceships in the Star Wars films.


At the end of the day it's all about the painting really, especially at 15mm scale where detail is hard to see at arm's length. So here are my finished products:


They were a very simple paint job, Stone Grey trousers with Intermediate Blue shirts. The packs and bits of armour I painted in black and the helmets white.


I bought a pack of heavy weapons to mix in as specialists, the single shot rocket launcher could easily be a proton torpedo launcher...


I'm happy with how they have turned out, I see that Khurasan have some figures that look similar to the Rebel Fleet Troops as well, so I may get some of those when their website is back online (plus I'm still holding out for their not-Stormtroopers...).


My attention has now turned to finding some useful aliens, so keep checking back for more updates!

Today is also the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo, carried out by Garvillo Princep. It was the incident which triggered the First World War!

  1. Those look really good. Dark Blue Grey 904 might have been a better match for the shirt colour, but the Intermediate Blue works nicely too.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I see what you mean, but from a distance I like the contrast of the blue/grey that I used.

  3. An excellent job, other than those odd 70s style vests on the movie troopers, these are spot on.

    As for 15mm Stormtroopers... Releasing Those Certain Fellows was a gamble by KM, and he obviously has to be vewwy vewwy caweful, lest Disney come calling. Even I wouldn't order a set under the conditions he asked (namely, a separate order with separate shipping fees, presumably an attempt to "insulate" the rest of his enterprise from any fallout).

    1. They are worth while getting and fit in pretty well as Rebels!
