RAFM Soldiers of the Queen

I have been running a Gurps Steampunk role-playing game based on Frank Chadwick's Space 1889 background. Chadwick's Space 1889 game is one of my all time favorite games and I have almost everything published for it and a bunch more player generated background I found around the Internet. The French Foreign Legion on Mars games originated from an earlier Soldier's Companion campaign we played before I started this blog. The role playing game is currently on hiatus but the group is itching to get back playing. I have prepared a complicated story arc for the game but no "spoilers" here. Planing the continuing adventure of the players has inspired me to break out some of my old Space 1889 figures.

These are my one box of RAFM Soldiers Of The Queen, a couple of characters from the Space 1889 adventurer box and some Napoleonic naval crew from, I think, Grenadier. I originally had then based on 1/2 inch washers but broke them off and mounted them on 1 inch washers to match the rest of my models. I have since puttied the based and flocked them with sand. The players have also acquired a martian cloud ship and that is why I need some naval crew members when we use miniatures during the game. The Naval crew are Napoleonic figs but will work for the game. I also found have a hand full of British and French 25mm Napoleonic but I had to strip the paint off of them. Once I get them out of the simple green I plan to paint them up and use them in the game. I am still hyped about the Gurps 1889 game and look forward to the next session.
