Turning more seriously to wrapping my SF skirmish, and I don't know current production well enough--or SF wargame customs, come to that.
1) Anyone make a crew for Moira from Farscape? Or reasonable equivalent?
2) Same for Blake's 7.
3) How about Ack-Ack Macaque, from the book of that name? Monkey in a WWII flight jacket with twin 45's? (He just HAS to meet Rocket Racoon.)
4) Marking my team. I get the Guy with the Big Gun, the Sniper, the Unarmed Combat Guy, and the Guy with the Handgun(s). The Commander is usually holding a handgun and waving an arm, the RTO usually has something with an antenna and the Medic is usually marked with a red cross somewhere. Is there a convention for identifying the Thief and the Hacker?

Some possible Blakes 7 candidates at beastinthebroch.com/shop

The Thief is typically a smokin' hot babe in a black catsuit. The Hacker can be identified by the neural jacks sticking out of his skull.

Crooked Dice have Blakes 7 crew plus Tarrant, Servilan and Fed troopers, all 28mm.
CP Miniatures have some troopers too.

Crooked Dice don't do Blakes 7 any more; they migrated to the Beast in the Broch and are superb figures.[see link above]

What I have done from Crooked Dice is to make up a crew of typical TV 1970's low budget fashion victims. The sort of people you'd find in classic Doctor Who "base under siege" stories.
Do Heresy still do Firefly/Serenity proxies?

Old Glory has a monkey in WW1 piolet outfit in their SuperFigs line.

Beast in the Broch figures are on their way. Thanks.

And thank you, Krieg Geist! But I've run that line twice without success. Can you remember anything which would get me closer to him?

Der Krieg Geist23 Sep 2021 4:44 a.m. PST

Yes if I remember correctly he is either in the first Superfigs series or came as pilot with the giant mecha gorilla… I can check my figures and see if I have a second copy of him, if you would like?

Maybe the Mecha Gor Gor model is discontinued… :( .l can't find it or any of the resin cast Supers/ sci if stuff at all. Anyway I can still see if I have one :)
