Well, I grabbed up some more space opera based mini’s and it looks like things maybe getting off the ground for this campaign. It’s been a chore finding more mini’s. I have a bunch of the old WOTC Star Wars mini’s but like any gamer I wanted more. I searched the internet and kept my eye open looking for something inexpensive.
Then it hit me. One of the Appendix N inspirations for this whole thing is Guardians of the Galaxy. What about Hero Clix. I mean I have a bunch of Mage Knight minis and Horror CLix (if you remember those). Plus I’ve grabbed up some less superhero looking Hero Clix for modern era games. And yep found some singles over at Troll and Toad. Heck, the most I paid for one was 99 cents. Not bad.
Here’s some if you’re looking for some more retro and just a bit gonzo. Who can say no to kungfu disco robot? That’s what I thought when I saw the mini of ISAAC.

Of course, there’s your more standard fare and the Guardians themselves that would work pretty darned well.

Right now, I don’t know if I’ll leave these as is or take the time to rebase or possibly repaint a couple.
Let’s talk spaceships. Previously, I had picked up a bag of the very soft plastic (vinyl or whatever the hell they are made of) space ships from Amazon and there was some discussion of another set which I picked up. Here’s a pic of those along with a Star Wars Micro Machine Millenium Falcon (Yeah, I got some of those too). And as you can see, they are a very similar scale which should work pretty well on the tabletop.

This new set is larger. Slightly more detailed and from harder plastic. And according to the Amazon reviews you could even paint these. So what am I going to do with those soft ones? Well, they would make cool Bennies. Wait, what? Is that obvious hint? Yep. That Space Opera game is finally going to come together and I’ll be returning to on old favorite game system that I haven’t messed with in years. Savage Worlds. So it’s time to dust of the rules books and hunt up those old house rules and get to making up cool stuff.
