Finally finished rebasing Star Wars!

Several years ago, I put together matching Star Wars armies, mostly using 25mm West End Games figures. I based them in groups for HoTT, played a campaign with the Imperials and then shelved them. I then used them for Memoir 44 but the grouped bases didn't work for casualty removal.


Back in the spring, I popped all 200 figures off their bases, mounted them on washers and started to flock. Then I lost interest and they became this overwhelming project sitting on the side table.


I finally finished these guys this week. It feels great to have this done--they were physically and mentally blocking my painting for months!


I just snapped some shots of a few figures. There are lots of duplicate storm troopers, Imperial naval troopers, rebel troopers, and wookies (some many damned wookies!).


I think these guys would do for a good pulp alley game one day. Maybe crossed with Star Trek so as to outrage my club mates?

  1. Sooo.... your working on Trek figures next then to have both bands ready to rock? We could always do a Storm Trooper vs Red Shirts & have everyone die! Are these figures more in line with 25mm? vs what the Imperial Assault ones are, or the Wizkids?

    1. These are old school 25s so notably shorter than modern stuff.

  2. I used to love this stuff when it first came out but could never afford it. Then I found about 30 stormtroopers at a bring and buy. They are still gathering dust twenty years later. I take them out evey now and again and dream of the days when 25mm was king.

    1. Oh yeah, prices were crazy. I got almost all of these in a bring a buy except Boba Fett (someone on TMP sent me him to fill out the Bounty Hunters).

  3. Could probably find a digital copy of the old West End Games Star Wars miniatures battles around. I may even have one...

    1. I was thinking Pulp Alley. Or maybe Dragon Rampant for more figures. Not sure 30-year-old rules are worth the effort I used to own a copy of the WEG rules but seem to have passed it on at some point.

  4. If you do play a crossover game, please post a blog, then step back and watch the Interweb explode!

    Seriously though, do let us know if you do play a crossover game. I've seen starship combat crossovers on the Starship Combat News forums, so why not skirmish games?

    Its your table! Have fun, and never mind canon! :)

    1. I have quite a number of 25mm figures (Star Trek, Star Wars and am awaiting an order for other TV shows) so I will keep you posted! My Xmas game will be a cross over but not using these figures.
