Alien Scum for Star Wars Legion

For my recent birthday, my wife bought me a couple of sets of Star Wars Legion figures, including a box of Rebel Troopers. I bought myself some of the (expensive) alien heads from Mel's Miniatures on Shapeways. Despite their price, they are excellent sculpts and the detail is extremely crisp.

Star Wars Legion Alien Troopers

You get sixteen different heads and I swapped the heads of the Rebels for the Quarren, a Sullustan, an Abednedo, a Rodian, a Mon Calamari, an Ishi Tib and an Aqualish.  I will use the other heads in the next set of Rebel troops that I paint. this will mix up the figures and add a little extra Star Wars flavour to the units. I hope that Mel keeps on producing more Legion figures on this Shapeways shop, I'm also hoping the price of 3D printing comes down soon!

  1. I never understood why 3d printing via shape ways is so expensive?

    1. Me neither, but I wonder if they have a lot of failures so have to factor that in their price. Maybe it is because it's so slow. Hopefully, the prices will fall at some point.

  2. Mel is making more Legion stuff, but it seems like it is mostly clone wars era so far.

    The alien heads are really great, and make it seem much more like a rag tag rebel group.

    1. Yeah, the Clone Wars are not a part of the Star Wars universe that I'm interested in, I'm all about the original trilogy. These heads certainly add a bit of a mix to the rebels.
